The Recent Stuff...

Wednesday, October 19, 2011

Hey there friends, and happy Wednesday! So much going on this week that I barely have time to keep up with everything, but here goes nothing...
My boss called me Monday morning to give me some fantastic news! My promotion had been approved and so I am now a Marketing Coordinator III {fancy, huh?}...so excited and thankful that I have a boss that constantly watches over our marketing team and always tries to take care of us! Working my way up the corporate ladder, slowly but surely. Now here's to hoping I can talk Jeff into letting me get a little "celebratory gift".
I got crafty the other night and painted our pumpkins finally! Paired with our fall mums, I think our front door is quite welcoming for a Happy Fall Yall ;).  And here is the inside of our formal living room...the mantle all decked out for Halloween! {yes, I used candy corn as filler for our candles, and I may have snuck a few pieces for myself--no judgment}
Bell Buckle was so much fun last weekend...we had a blast walking around, partaking in lots of tasty food, and I even managed to snag a few good bargains--2 new scarves for my already overflowing stash, homemade banana nut bread, and I bought my first Christmas present of the year for Jeff--I think it's safe to call that a successful day!
Gorgeous weather...Mom and Me
Best parents
As for the rest of this week, I have been up in arms trying to get everything in order for the party this weekend--last night, I finished food signs/labels and worked on party favors, and tonight I'll start my seemingly endless food prep for the festivities...so much to tackle before friends and family join us on Saturday.
Hope you all have a wonderful Wednesday...Igoing to get lots accomplished today so I can give into my favorite guilty pleasure tonight...Revenge! Take that, and pair it with hot chocolate and you have a perfect fall evening ;)

  6. Looks like a fun weekend! I always LOVE finding Christmas presents early but then I have SUCH a hard time keeping it a secret until the time comes. I just love giving people gifts. Especially when I find things that I know they will love. I bought my sister and SIL a gift back in JULY because it was just so perfect for them and I am just dying to give it to them. :) Can't wait to see how your party turns out! I know it will be darling. I will actually be in your neck of the woods this weekend. Heading to Nashville and Franklin on Friday! Can't wait to see the gorgeous trees. XOXO
