Weekend Wrap Up

This weekend was filled with complete opposites......Saturday was a jamb packed cleaning world wind while Sunday I became one with the couch and caught up on a weeks worth of TV! And the new shows Eastwick & Flashforward are great!!! But I am getting ahead of myself Friday night Matt & I went to the movies not because there was something we were dying to see but because we wanted to go! ha, We saw Surrogates with Bruce Willis and it was entertaining, the concept was very intriguing and I would say you at least should rent this when it comes out! Saturday Matt invited a friend from Basketball league over and his wife and I made the Pumpkin Cupcakes I talked about last week again............
And when I asked Matt what he would like to me to make he said Bobby Flay's LA Burger and I was happy to!!! Luckily our guests love avocado and pumpkin so they enjoyed the meal as much as we did!!! Here is a bit of my "set up"
We cleaned all day because we were having people over and to be honest it was nice to do a major deep clean!!! Below is a picture of a clean living room with our new rug!!!! (and some dogs)
I showed my mantle last week and this time I got the fireplace fixed up with new candles, some fall leaves and some scattered pumpkins in the leaves which I don't think you can see but they are there!!
I was excited to get some Fall mums and here is what Matt did in the back, I thought it was real clever putting them in our drink bin...
Here is a red mum we put out in the front on our bistro table! And I got leaf garlands to put around the base of the mums and I was thrilled with how good they looked!
We also got some small wood pumpkins to put throughout the flower beds and we re-did our black mulch....it is amazing how BIG a difference fresh mulch can make a yard look!!!!!!
And this is the yellow mum that welcomes you as you come to our front door.........
Ok, so I guess I like pumpkins huh?
These I got at Hobby Lobby all half off to decorate the patio table for our guests!!!
Well I hope I did not bore everyone with my fall decor but it makes me happy and I had to share our hard work! Stay tuned because I cooked up a storm yesterday and have recipes to share!!!!
