Fall has officially rolled in to our state! But being Oklahoma, this rainy overcastness, with a slight chill in the air, likely won’t stay long. It will probably be in the 90s by the end of the week. But for now, at least, I’m basking in the feeling of autumn in the air! Today was a perfect fall day. My husband woke up at the crack of dawn, so he decided to load up the kids and hit the grocery store to make a delicious breakfast of eggs, bacon, toast & gravy. Of course that meant that I got to sleep in!! On my new bedding! Ahhhh….it was pure heaven. I posted a picture yesterday on Facebook of the new bed set, but here’s a picture as well for those that may not follow me there.
I stumbled across this beautiful set (after MONTHS of looking for the perfect one) at Target last night. What made it even sweeter was that it was on sale for a mere $39.98!! I went ahead and splurged on some new sheets as well, and a soft, snuggle cover for our body pillow so that it would match the new bed set. Grand total of $70, which is still less than I would have normally spent on the comforter alone. I’m working on a redecoration of our bedroom (can it really be called REdecorating when it’s never truly been decorated to begin with?? Hmm….), and my goal is to do the whole room for under $100. I think I’m going to be able to do it! That won’t include painting of course, but we’re still holding off on that portion of the house renovating.
Friday night, the man and I drove to a casino about two hours away to see Jason Aldean in concert. I’m sure you all recall how much I love Jason, since I’ve blogged about it endlessly on here:) The show, of course, was fantastic–and it was just so darn good to get to spend some adult time together. My best friend and kids’ godmother, Heather, stayed the night here at the house with the kiddos. Yesterday we all slept in, then finally hauled ourselves off the couch to go to our favorite Mexican restaurant. It was a tough day.:)
Just when I thought the weekend couldn’t get any better, we awoke to a rainy morning today. I absolutely love rain (except when I have to get ready for work and get out in it, LOL). After consuming the aforementioned breakfast (doesn’t food always taste better when it’s made by your husband??), the day has consisted of finishing putting out Halloween decorations, reading, napping and making the first batch of hot apple cider of the season. I even made a big batch of Cowboy Soup, super easy and amazingly yummy, with cornbread on the side. To celebrate the occassion of fall food, I even busted out my favorite snowmen bowls. I collect snowmen and put them out for the season immediately after Halloween. Last year, I didn’t even take them down till around March:)
In short, I suppose what I’m trying to say is that this weekend totally rocked! I hope everyone else had a great one as well:)
