Weekend Notes 10.31.16

Happy Halloween! I’ll be eating tons of chocolate candies today and treating myself to a Starbucks frap! The Frappula Frap is back and it’s such a good treat. I really like the chocolate and raspberry together.

Costume: I had a costume idea for this year, bought half of it, then never bought anything else to go with it. So it’s packed away for next year. Did you dress up this weekend or are you dressing up today? Books: I hit my goal of finishing the first 3 Harry Potter books before I head down to Harry Potter World in a few weeks! I’m on the 4th now and I think I’ll take a break after and read something else. Any recommendations?

TV: Any TVD fans out there? This is the last season and I’m not sure how I feel about that. I was a huge fan of the show until last season. Not because they did away with Elena, I’m good with that, but because the writing got pretty bad and cheesy. I’m kind of in a slump…any good shows I should watch? Eats: Still eating and drinking lots of pumpkin! I’ve been ordering a venti soy latte with 3 pumps of caramel syrup and 2 pumps of pumpkin…so good!! These pumpkin muffins freeze well so I’m still enjoying them.

Decor: I didn’t get around to decorating for Halloween this year and by the time I realized it was too late to dig around in the attic for everything. In my dreams, my Halloween decorations would totally look like this! Mary Beth has the prettiest decorations I’ve ever seen. Maybe next year I can pull this off?

Fashion: It’s been months since I received a Stitch Fix box. I took a break for a while to purge my closet. I donated tons of clothes over the last few weeks. Since I cleaned out so much stuff, I requested a box with pieces that were appropriate for fall. I received some pretty good pieces. I’ll share what I got next month! For now here’s a peek.

Looking forward to: The election being over. There I said it…I can’t wait for it to end already so we can all get back to our normal lives AND next month is Thanksgiving!! My favorite holiday!!! (Update 2020 – Ha jokes on me. Things never went back to normal.)

    I’ve never had the Frapula Frap! I’ll have to try that next next year! I read all of the Harry Potter books back to back. I think it’s wise to take a break. I’m ready for the election to be over too, and yay for Thanksgiving!
