Weekend Reflections; Fall gets an Early Start

The best part about this weekend was that, even though it wasn’t, it felt like an extended weekend. Despite the fact that I worked all day on Friday the weekend felt like it kicked off on Thursday thanks to an evening spent at the Yankee Game. Thursday was a gorgeous late summer day, the sun was shining and the weather was hot. Friday was gorgeous as well but Saturday brought in the rain which broke the heat wave. Sunday morning gave us quite a chill but it did warm up a bit as the day went on. After a few too many Blue Moons at Thursday’s game, Friday was a low key day that focused on work and then an early night. Saturday we had planned on going apple picking but the cold air and windy rain deterred us. Sunday we slept in, made a leisurely breakfast of pancakes & scrambled eggs, shopped around for new fall decor and candles and went for a long walk to soak up as much time outdoors as possible. This coming weekend marks the true end of summer and I’m hoping to spend a day upstate at one of the hiking trails!

Enjoying the Yankee game on a gorgeous evening.

Next time, I should probably stick to just ONE round when out on a school week night.

Commuting to work at 7am on Friday morning after taking in more beer than baseball required the biggest cup of coffee & my head buried in a novel.

…and a Friday afternoon Pumpkin Spice Latte pick me up when my beer-induced-headache returned.

Took advantage of being cooped up inside on a rainy Saturday and finished up a commissioned chalk board menu board for an Etsy customer.

I think these mini mason jar candles from Bath & Body Works are the absolute cutest things ever.

Sundays & pancakes are made for each other.

Edible cookie dough…like, not for baking, JUST for eating. Two problems here: 1, WHY didn’t I think of this!? 2, WHY did I buy this?! Most dangerous purchase ever.

Changing leaves already and weather chilly enough for hot coffee.

The worst dilemma..finding something on Pinterest that you HAVE TO HAVE…but the photo doesn’t link back to a purchasing source. Does anyone know WHERE this coat is from!?!
