Best of the Weekend

It’s the weekend!

This week has been a busy one with too many after school activities including an evening fall festival at my school.  Although tiring, the fall festival was fun for the kids and Sherman, my dog, got to attend.  My kids loved seeing him!  A fellow teacher had her miniature horse at school all day long and he even came into my classroom.  It’s nice to break up the monotony of school with a fun day like this.

We’ll tackle the yard and the leaves this weekend and install a handmade mantel at almost completed lake house.  I can’t wait to share the mantel with you, we constructed it using a beam from a carriage house that used to stand on the farm where my grandfather grew up.  The farm is still in operation today and the carriage house was torn down in the 1970’s to make way for a garage.  My grandfather actually dismantled it on his summer vacation.

Enough about me, let’s get this party started!

On Monday I shared the contents of my 29th Stitch Fix box.  I love receiving my box each month and eagerly anticipate seeing what clothes my stylist picked for me.  The sweater shown here is so soft and has the cutest lace elbow patches.

My mom saved a few Halloween costumes from the 1970’s and I shared them on Thursday.  My tiniest 6th grader was my model.  The kids couldn’t believe that when I was a kid that we thought these costumes were great.

Deb from Cooking on the Front Burner created a Butternut Squash Orzo Salad with a Maple Vinaigrette that looks so tasty to me.  Her dish is one of my pins that I’m sure to actually make.
