What are you up to today?
I am expecting our Craigslist buyers to pick up our washer and dryer this morning, and then I can swiftly move my car into the garage! Yes it was a September goal to get the garage clear, but I am soooo happy that it gone done AT ALL. The few extra weeks weren’t so bad 🙂
I figured out our Halloween costumes! I picked up a few things at Goodwill and JoAnn Fabrics:
Any guesses what we are going as? Here’s your clue:
Making our own costumes will be so much cheaper than buying ones already made – the total cost of supplies was less than $20 for both of us. All I need is 2 hours to throw them together and sew them up!
Do you have your costume chosen/picked out?
Did you know that today is Sweetest Day? I heard a blurb on the radio about it yesterday and had no clue what it was. Apparently, it is known as a day to show affection to the ones in your life whom you like. So I made a lovely addition to breakfast for Jason (I like him, so it counts!)
Toast with peanut butter and homemade Pumpkin Butter.
I used Angela’s recipe for Happy Thanksgiving Homemade Pumpkin Butter. I followed her instructions and used brown sugar instead of Sucanat (it was all I had on hand). The house smells so good and just when I thought I was sick of pumpkin…
I’m not sick of it anymore!
Happy Sweetest Day! This is definitely a Hallmark holiday if I ever heard of one!
1. What are your plans for the day? Anything fun?
2. Do you celebrate little anniversaries/half birthdays/or anything of the kind? Jason and I don’t really celebrate, but we remember little anniversaries: first date, proposal date, wedding date (duh), birthdays, etc. We used to buy each other gifts for each month anniversary when we started dating.
My first gift to Jason:
His first gift to me:
Do you remember the gifts that family/friends/sig other have given to you? What has been a very special gift that you have received? Can you think of a really special gift you gave to someone else?
…my flowers are still alive:
Have a great day ~ Holly
