Now that we have dropped 32 degrees in one day, the season feels right. I always complain that it's soo god damn hot, or so humid and then BOOM, Old Man Winter comes in and punks me. I love fall and all the DIY projects. I don't know what it is, but between Halloween, glitter, leaves and gourds, I'm obsessed. Who says Gourds?
This brings me to my first and only fall project so far. I got this fab idea from my girl Brie over at A Recipe For A Beautiful Life. She uploaded her wreath on instagram and I just had to get instructions from her. Not only did Brie have a great DIY idea but if she lived near me I would pay her to be my personal trainer. Dedication, commitment, results, and consistency is what this girl is all about. If you need some serious ass-kicking motivation, go visit her blog and get inspired!!!
Here are the materials that I used
Also a glue gun and some stain for the "C"
I'm a huge Yankee Candle lover! So obsessed that I bought 8 in the last 2 weeks and the girls now know me at the store. A bonus to this? As I was fondling these delicious smelling candles, while being slightly tipsy, I bounced one off of the floor (this is was at home, not in the store, I try not to buzz shop). I told the girls at YC and they said to bring it in and they would exchange it for me! Fellow Wine-Ho's I bet.
I'm telling you, there are actually calories that you consume when you smell this bad boy. It is so good that it just makes me want to eat all day. I don't even like cake, and this is yum. *This might have been a suicide statement to my 24 followers lol. I don't like cake, or pie or sweets etc. I love chips. All chips except for chocolate ones.
Picked up these little guys at a local farm near us. Once again, to me, the small ones are much cuter than the big ones ! This does not apply to one thing in particular.
On Sunday I made some delish Apple Cider Sangria
I am posting the recipe because this stuff is fall in a cup and slightly dangerous.
2 bottles of pinot grigio
6 cups of fresh apple cider
1 cup of Smirnoff sour apple vodka
2 gala apples cubed with peels
4 packets of splenda
and 1 cup of club soda (add this right before serving)
Add all these ingredients except for the club soda and let sit in the fridge for at least 2 hours. The longer is sat in the fridge the better it was. Or we had just consumed to much that we just thought it was better. But no, seriously soak the apples in the sangria for a while before drinking it.
Just a few pics from Game Day
The Orthopedist ordered this move! Hopefully it will help the hubs. I decided to break it out at our friends house. It was that stupid sangria's fault.
And as the temperature drops in our house, we refuse to turn the heat on. The fire place is burning and I broke out this sexy frock today!!
Happy work week friends!!!
