I LOVE Fridays!
Anyone who knows me, knows I LOVE Fridays. There's just something about knowing the next 2 days are free from work and can be spent doing what you love, with who you love. Since Friday's are my favorite day of the week, I decided to name it Fabulous Friday and share some fabulous things in my life right now, or from the past week. So here we go!
~ My jack o' lantern toes - I smile everytime I look down at them.
~ Caramel and candy apples - think I need to make some more!
~ Chicken pot pie - it was yummylicious!
Got anything fabulous to share? Would love to hear about it!

Wow! October is flying by!
I had good intentions of posting all this month, but you know how that goes. Life happens and blog posting does not.
With Fall, shorter days and cooler weather, we've been spending a lot more time in the house, so I decided to do a little decorating.
Pinterest is the place to go for decorating ideas. Beware though - you can't just spend a few minutes on Pinterest. It sucks you right in!
I got the ghost idea from Pinterest. I LOVE a good ghost story. I don't care for slasher movies, Jason, Freddie, but give me a good old ghost story and I'm all for it. There's nothing better than cuddling on the couch with Fonzy and watching a good ole' scary movie!
Another thing I have all over are twinkle lights! There are pumpkin lights on the fireplace. Purple and orange ones on the bookshelf in our entry way, and purple ones on our bed headboard. I have a slight obsession with twinkle lights.

My place of comfort - our home/bed
We are home bodies. One rainy day last week as I left for work, I was thinking how happy I was there were no games, or practices and I could go home, put my pj's on and just enjoy being home. I picked up Elijah from school and he asked if we had anything going on and once I told him no, he said great! "I can go home and put my pj's on!" A boy after my own heart! In this hustle and bustle world we live in, we are more than content to just stay home.
Fonzy's birthday is today. I baked some pumpkin bars for him. He took a bite and asked if I would be mad if he told me they were nasty. I tasted them and they were nasty! So much for his "birthday cake" I wanted to take a picture of him for his birthday, but Fonzy hates taking pictures, so all I have to remember his 36th birthday is a picture of the nasty pumpkin bars!
Love you Fonzy and pray every night we have many, many, many more years to share!

Red ~ Orange ~ Yellow ~ Brown - SAVORING the beauty all around.
Along with participating in Shutter Sisters OWP (one word project) I am taking part in Hannah Marcotti's Spirit of Joy and creating a vision book! I have my notebook, colored pencils, sharpies, and glitter! I'm ready! Today we had to decide on our word of the month. I thought all day and couldn't decide on a word, then all of sudden it hit me - SAVOR.
SAVOR: to give oneself to the enjoyment of;
I want to savor this life I have! And what better time to take this on then my favorite time of year. There's so much to enjoy during this time of year, and I plan to SAVOR it all!
