So You're Saying the Weekend's Over?!?!

Morning, friends! How are you? Hopefully you're all rested up from the weekend and if not, grab an extra cup of coffee and rock out today! Hard to believe today is the LAST Monday of October, right? I mean, this month just flew by at mach bazillion speed and honestly, I'm a bit surprised. This has been one of the more chill months of the year for us and I feel we've enjoyed the slow down immensely. Speaking of a slow weekend, let's check out what happened in pink land. 

This weekend I. . . 

… enjoyed a lazy Saturday morning sipping cinnamon coffee on the couch. #gamechanger

… whipped up a spooky breakfast feast. Moms, grab some purple potatoes for a freaky halloween treat :)!

… watched College Game day at JMU. I have a ton of JMU alumni friends so it was awesome seeing a local university on the show. I was kind of bummed no one picked Richmond to win, I thought they had a good chance, but I really enjoyed the pageantry.

… rocked my UofR shirt to the gym. Had to rep RICHMOND since no one else picked them!

… worked out like a bad@$$ and felt great. #getswoll

… cleaned, dusted and organized the apartment with the windows open.

… attempted homemade butternut squash soup. It turned out amazing, recipe to come.



… watched Richmond CRUSH JMU, go spiders. 

… took a nap watching college football. #allwedoiswatchcollegefootball #ilovetherest

… cheered on the Buckeyes to another victory. #threecheersforjtbarrett

… finished setting out our fall decor. My MIL gave us the towels and I LOVE EM! Our kitchen is so festive.

… slept in on Sunday, cheers to sleep. 

… sent off an incredible musician at church. 

… wore my new super soft sweater from @pearlandmonroeboutique. #goingbrokebutlovingtheclothes
 Sweater: Pearl & Monroe {sold out} || Jeans: Loft {similar} || Wedge Booties: Toms || Earrings: Kendra Scott ||
Sunglasses: Oakley || Watch: Michael Kors

… gave my girl a long over due bath. Probably her last until the winter weather hits, hope she enjoys it while it lasts.

… did some blog prep work for the next few weeks. #itfeelsgoodtogetahead

… devoured homemade ribs made by Le Husband. He is so talented in the kitchen and I'm a lucky gal indeed.

… napped, food prepped and then played a soccer game.

I'm ready to conquer this week, how about y'all? Did you have a fun weekend?

Oh my gosh, I hadn't realized that this is the last Monday of October until you said it..now I feel like theres so many scary movies and Halloween activities I need to watch/do. I don't even think I have had candy corn yet this year! I'm glad you watched College GameDay! I tried hard to make it on TV haha! Your fall decor is so cute, especially the vase/tree trunk! Hope you had a great Monday!

Jessica (The Newly) said...

I so wish I liked coffee because cinnamon coffee sounds delish! Wonder how some cinnamon would be in caramel apple cider? I've never thought to try that, but sounds like it could be good, right?

Thanks for sharing the P&M love, sweet friend! Your sweater looks AMAZE on you! Fits you perfectly:) I appreciate your support so much:)
