Halloween Fun!

Our weekend was pretty busy...but very productive and lots of fun! And it started with Chick-fil-a for dinner on Friday. What could be better? Obviously not the spinach lasagna we were supposed to have for leftovers. But when Matt only at one bite of the meal on Thursday, I knew it wasn't happening. But I digress.

Saturday I started the morning off at the gym! I know...crazy. But the beginning of my week was a little questionable food wise so I felt the need to make up for it. We did our regular grocery shopping and also got a new mattress, pillows, and sheets for our new guest bed that is arriving today! Holy crap beds are expensive people! Who knew? Oh yeah. My husband. That's why we've waited so long to upgrade.

FYI: Mattresses are huge and they do not fit into the back seat of Taurus's, just so you know. After some help from a man in the Costco parking lot who just happened to have a piece of plywood in his van...we were able to get it into my trunk without too much trouble. Although we drove home with 3/4th's of it sticking out of my car...it worked. Mystery man = lifesaver.

Then we carved our pumpkin! I had the great idea of using a permanent marker to trace around where we would cut the top off because I couldn't see the pencil...and then realized that we would be putting the top right back on. Idiot. So now we have a huge black circle on the top of our pumpkin...and I can't even blame Matt. Er. But it turned out cute anyway!












And finally, my outside fall decor is complete!









We spent Halloween evening at a friend's house passing out their candy for them since we never get any kids. It was a really fun evening and ended with a free one of these:


Seriously delicious and yum!

Sunday I hit up the gym again and headed home to get some more stuff done in preparation for my parent's visit later this month. We hung a few pictures, put up some blinds, built a piece of furniture that my parents gave us for Christmas like two years ago (couldn't have it sitting there unopened when they came to visit!), and rearranged our guest room in preparation for the new bed! Then I got to nap and made a super yummy dinner I got from Brown Eyed Girl and her Beau: Cheesy Chicken Corn Soup! Amazing! Overall, the weekend was really nice but just flew by. I could seriously use four days...couldn't you??
