Yes it certainly is!
And bonus…I’m taking a three day weekend 🙂 .
The kids do not have school on Monday…so I am going to enjoy the long weekend and then see you girls back here on TUESDAY. By the way, wouldn’t you much rather have a Friday off rather than a Monday? Our district almost exclusively gives off Mondays instead of Fridays…but I really think a Thursday night is more fun than a Sunday night. Anyone else? I feel like I should start a petition or something 😉 .
Oh my goodness, our magical fall fun has generated so many questions, so it’s my number one fave for the week.
Here it is…
So many of you want to know how we watch a movie over on our firepit?! The answer: ANDREW SHULL. I was just showing up to the good time…Andrew makes it all happen, so I asked him what he’s using, how he’s doing it and today, I have the scoop for you.
He already had THIS projector (he uses it when he goes on mission trips to show films/movies to people), and then we bought THIS SCREEN over the summer so we can watch movies in the pool. The projector hooks up to the Bluetooth on our phones and we just play movies off of our phones. It really is SO EASY!
We have watched live sporting events, movies and even a sermon out there by the fire. Listen, if we’re not going to get The State Fair of Texas, Oktoberfest, parties and fun…we’re going to make our own.
You’ve Got Mail and s’mores with my peeps. It was one of those nights where I just sat there and counted my blessings. I feel so fortunate to be a part of this family of mine. I love my peeps so much!
Speaking of s’mores…
…if you’re note using the SmoreMallows for your s’mores, you’re missing out. They are SO MUCH BETTER than using a typical marshmallow because they’re already shaped the size of a graham cracker. Did you know I have a ton of S’Mores recipes?! I do! You can see them all right HERE. I even have fun stuff like…
…this S’mores Snack Mix!
Awwwww…friends, I can finally see the light…
…and it’s pouring through the giant new windows of the Mix and Match Travel Agency office. Hallelujah! After the flood, the new construction took a big backseat to the first floor…and now that we’re starting to wrap that up, we can move back up and finish what we started. Three and a half years ago, when we began dreaming up this project, we were just going to build an office, but about a year ago, we decided to use all of the space and really add on, so not only are we getting an office, but we’re getting a home gym (that includes tons of storage), an upstairs laundry station (watch out Shull kids!) a new full bath and the existing living room is now larger. We have a bit more flex space left up there, but those are our main additions now. There have been SO MANY moments over the last three months since the flood when I regretted any and all of this change, but seeing the windows installed has breathed new life in me.
I’m excited to finish this up and anxious to (hopefully) kick off 2021 with a new space that is construction-free.
On Monday, I was at Hobby Lobby, and I saw this girl…
…and I immediately loved her. I bought her and brought her home to live on my desk. Every little detail in this picture makes my heart happy. Just wanted to share 😉 .
Speaking of sharing…
…my mother-in-law told me to buy these beauty blender knock-offs on Amazon, so I did and I really like them! As you know, I’ve been a devout user of the original Beauty Blender for years and years, but I was really curious about these since you get 10 for only $8. Honestly? If you’ve been holding out, you really should try these. They’re a little larger than the original and not quite as squishy, but they get the job done. I always get mine (either one) damp and then apply my foundation and/or concealer with it. I have been washing our my Beauty Blender about every three days with shampoo and allowing it to dry, but with these, you can either do the same or just toss them when they get too gross. If you have teens or tweens in your house, these would be great stocking stuffers…I was really impressed with the quality. They matched perfectly with my new CC cream 🙂 . If you missed this…
I posted this yesterday, but in case you missed it, I wanted to share it again as this sale is too good to miss!
