Sunday Funday

So turns out that I wrote the majority of all my blog posts while I was wasting away of boredom at my old job. Now that I have a new job I have way way less free time lol. But I have a moment now so I figured I’d slap something up.

I had a fairly whirlwind weekend this past weekend…which was a nice change of pace. On Saturday afternoon my bestie and I went to this cool terrarium making party at a local glass shop where she blows glass (I hang with a talented crew lol). We got to make wet and dry terrariums. NOTE: every single time I think or say terrarium I confuse it with a house for spiders…I think they sound the same). Anyhow–I was pumped because a wet terrarium is essentially creating a Jurassic Park type scene in a jar! Spoilers mine has a pterodactyl in it! Boom.

It was our other friend K’s birthday this weekend so we had some extra fun activities planned. We spent a fun hour kayaking on the Charles River. It was a murky chilly type day but it was really fun.

We couldn’t really continue the party because we all soaking wet, but a bunch of us met up later that night to eat tacos and watch Game of Thrones. My contribution was cupcakes. But not just any old cupcakes…these were the stuff 90s kids dreams are made of. They were vanilla cupcakes with purple frosting and pop rocks on top! You can hear them snap crackle and pop on you plate…and then comes that creepy-but-awesome blitzkrieg of pop that happens the second they hit your mouth lol. They were really fun!

Overall, it was a solid weekend with my lady pals šŸ™‚

Gettin’ Crafty: Fall Edition

Fall is OFFICIALLY here folks. And I couldn’t be more pumped about it! Fall is my favorite season. 1. The weather is ideal (layers are my jam, bring on the cardigans!) 2. Pumpkin flavored EVERYTHING…I think I’ve drank a pumpkin spice latte everyday for a month 3. beautifulĀ foliageĀ 4. Fall crafts and treats! 5. Halloween themed life (hello Hocus Pocus!).

So my pals and I have been really getting into the spirit of fall these days. We’ve been planning fun festive activities (going to a haunted corn maze tomorrow!) and spending time hunting for costumes, etc.

The other night we had a quiet Friday night-in so we could decorate some pumpkins! So fun. I encourage all of you to check out Pinterest for some awesome pumpkin decorating/ holiday decorating ideas!

While we were busy gettin’ our holiday craft on, we also had some tasty seasonal treats!

We toasted up the pumpkin seeds from J’s pumpkin (coated with olive oil, salt, and garlic salt and baked at 350 for about 20 mins) and drank some yummy pumpkin cider (Woodchuck Pumpkin Cider) with cinnamon sugar rimmed glasses!

 

 

 

And when I saw this guy at the Boston Common Coffee Company I just HAD to get it! So adorable…also delicious!

Happy Fall!
