Fall Weekending

It finally feels like fall in Florida. And by fall, I mean it's no longer 95 degrees. The weekend was relaxing with an ounce of fun so perfect in my books!

On Friday, my company threw a tailgate party to kick off football season. Everyone wore their favorite team shirts and we had lunch from a food truck along with beer and tailgating games.

After the work event, K and I went to check out Cheddar's Scratch Kitchen for dinner which just opened in our area. The food and drinks were delish and very affordable! I want to go back to try some more things on their menu.

On Saturday morning, I went with K to look for a new car. That's a long process in itself but we found his dream car ~ a black 2015 Toyota Camry with black interior.

After car shopping, we met up with some friends for some lunch and drinks to watch the UCF game. Their cute pup Louie also kept us company while we enjoyed the nice weather on the patio.

Sunday was perfectly "lazy" spent food prepping, decorating for Halloween, blogging, laundry and the works ;-)

Hope you had a fab weekend!

Halloween Friday '13

I hope everyone enjoyed Halloween yesterday whether you took part in the festivities or just lounged on the couch with some wine and your favorite TV shows.

Here's a quick weekly Friday recap:

#1: Our bucket of candy that we handed to the neighborhood kids last night.

#2: Finally earned platinum membership with ULTA. Woot! More bonus points and free stuff ;-)

#3: Spoiled myself with this pretty facial cleansing system. Has anyone tried the Clarisonic Mia or Olay Pro-X... what do you think?

#4: I enjoyed some Angry Orchard Apple Cider after work a few nights this week. It's delicious!

#5: The company bought us Jersey Mike's subs for lunch yesterday which was pretty dang good. Never tried them before.

What's your plans for the weekend?

Happy Friday!

Alma Mater Pumpkin Carving

Luckily, both K and I graduated from the same college so it was easy deciding how we should carve the pumpkin this year. Our Alma mater is University of Central Florida (UCF) so we decided to represent pumpkin style.

This design required a drill so I let K do most of the work and we love how it came out ;-)

Oh and K created his own little meme to share on Facebook.

Funny, funny! (Although it was very true)

Now I gotta go to Spirit Halloween tonight to look for cheap Halloween Masks or Wigs for us to give out candy tomorrow. Amazon Halloween Shop also has great deals but it's a little to late to do online shopping now. 

Have a Happy Halloween tomorrow!

Things I Love About Fall

 Honestly, the thing I'm loving the most this year is the pumpkin beer. Lush? Maybe ;-)

Cute Scarves and Boots

Costume parties
Guess who I went as for Halloween one year?

Giving out candy to trick-or-treaters.
Does that sound creepy? I honestly like doing this just to meet new people in the neighborhood and chat with our neighbors. The kids costumes are cute too.

Family and endless desserts.

What are you dressing up as for Halloween this year?
