Hey, heeeeey! It’s Friday, I’ve got no plans this weekend, and the weather might actually be turning FINALLY…but I probably just jinxed it so here’s to another two weeks of 80-90 degree weather (probably).
1 – If you follow me on instagram, you may have noticed that Kyle and I went on vacation recently. We decided to escape the heat for more heat and went on a 7 night Caribbean cruise on one of the biggest cruise ships in the world and it was freakin’ amazing. I’ll do a full trip report soon but here are a couple of pictures until then.
2 – Before we left for vacation, we had a ton of help from Kyle’s family and were able to finish staining the fence and the deck (thanks again!)! There’s still a bit of finishing work to do on the deck with the railings and the siding and we still have no stairs but it’s coming along nicely. Eventually, the entire underside of the deck will be closed in. Eventually. Our yard is still a mess but I’m hoping to work on getting it cleaned up soon. We’re still waiting to be put on the schedule to get the fallen trees cleared out and everything else in the yard is kind of on hold until then.
3 – While we were on vacation, we celebrated our 4th anniversary. On one hand, I can’t believe it’s already been four years since our wedding but on the other it feels like we’ve been married for much longer (in a good way). Here are a couple of my favorite photos from our wedding (courtesy of the fabulous Red Apple Tree Photography).
And here’s one after dinner on the ship on our anniversary last week.We clean up pretty okay.
4 – The big trick-or-treat event that Kyle plans as part of his job is next week and I have no idea what my costume is going to be this year. I kind of want to attempt a deer costume modeled after my favorite snapchat filter but I’m having trouble finding something to use as the ears. I looked on amazon but didn’t really find much so I may have to DIY them. Thoughts? Here’s the filter I’m talking about:
5 – Now that it’s finally feeling like Fall outside there are so many things I want to do! I’m thinking maybe we’ll carve pumpkins this weekend which is something we haven’t done in years. We’re also trying to decide when to go apple picking and whether we can make it to the corn maze or not this year. I feel like the season really crept up on us this year; we’re not even finished decorating for Halloween yet!
