I cannot believe it is October 12 already. This year is absolutely flying by and before you know it there will snow on the ground. I am totally loving the fall weather though. Today, I pulled out my leather boots for the very first time this season. I forgot how cute and comfortable they are! I splurged earlier this year on a pair of gorgeous brown boots, but I have’t had the nerve to wear they yet because I’m terrified they’ll get scratched or something. I’ll wait for the perfect weather conditions before I break those bad boys out.
Anyway, sorry for the lack of posts this weekend! It was a crazy one, albeit fun. Friday night we stayed in to watch the game with some friends. I know this may give you deja vu, however, we ordered pizza again! This time we ordered a Chicken and Ranch pizza too (plus some wings!). I put a little hot sauce on the chicken pizza and it was wonderful!
Saturday, oh Saturday. What can I say about this day? Well, it started off with a visit from our handyman to fix a few things around the house. [Side note: He, in fact, made the problem worse and we currently are unable to use our kitchen sink. Fun, right?] I made PUMPKIN BREAD. Now, I cheated. I’ll admit it. I used a BOX!!! EEK! Although it turned out fabulous. I contemplated tossing in some chocolate chips, but alas, just decided to go the plain route.
We then caught up with friends of ours that were putting on a bar crawl in our town. We didn’t want to do the whole ‘crawl’ so we waited until the third stop to join in. I don’t exactly know how it happened [a drink called the Conshy Crush] but somehow the tornado of people picked us up and carried us to 2 more bars! Obviously, totally and completely against our will. The result? I was asleep by 10:00. I was able to salvage some pictures and show you some of the carnage:
Sunday, I had to drag myself out of bed to get to a baby shower for a good friend of mine. I’ll show you some shots:
I came home and collapsed made dinner. Its a quick and easy recipe by yours truly.
Hot Italian Sausage
1 lb Penne Pasta
1 16 oz. can of Diced Tomatoes (with chiles)
1/2 16 oz can of Diced Tomatoes
*Cook the pasta according to the instructions
*Saute the sausage in a little water, covered, until brown
*Cut sausage into pieces
*Add the can of tomatoes with chiles and half can of the regular diced. Sprinkle in some salt, pepper and parmesan cheese, if you have. Saute together for about 5 minutes.
*Add the sausage and tomatoes to the pasta and sprinkle with mozzarella. You may want to add a little EVOO.
*Serve with your favorite RED WINE!
Well, I didn’t end up looking at the Ray Bans like I wanted to, especially with that tornado and everything. I’m hoping to get there one night this week. Tonight, I just had to go to the gym. I could just feel the inches piling on.
I’ll definitely post a Must/Lust for this week at some point.
Have a great night!
