For months I have been patiently counting down to 3 things happening this fall:
#1: BeautyCounter's partnership with Target/ launch of the limited edition collection. (It did not disappoint!)
Allie had Fall Break early in the month which she spent visiting family in Alabama. I passed the time by making Allie a ginormous batch of gluten free breakfast biscuits (her fav)
We drove up to Tennessee late Wednesday evening and crashed at an Airbnb in downtown Franklin.
Although I am really suppose to limit my sugar intake, I seriously enjoyed every bite of this Riesling Poached Pear sorbet.
My super cute lunch date. I had this guy across the table from me, Amelia's was parked right out the window to my left, and I was eating Bar Taco. Who could ask for anything more?! :)
Ready to go support my favorite singer/songwriter! :)
Before heading home the next morning, we stopped by Crema for Zach to get his snobby coffee fix. Since I don't drink coffee, I just enjoy the ambiance of great coffee places.
These events are so fun for me because I get to create/brand so many components- everything from invitations to recipe cards, agendas, aprons, packaging, gifts, and crafting the complete hospitality experience.
All my paper goods
The set up. Just waiting for all our guests!
With the Art Club from school, Allie did face-painting during the tailgate party prior to the game.
On Saturday I took Allie into the city to get her hair cut and styled by our favorite stylist. Lisa has been cutting my hair for 10 years now and I don't know what I would do without her.
The theme of the dance was Mardi Gras so everything was purple/green/gold-ed out.
LED dance floor.
The following week, just days prior to Halloween, Allie had a costume party at youth group. She wore a Bob Ross painting as her costume. HAHA
(Thanks Madison for sharing the pics!)
Halloween for us this year was pretty low-key. We dressed up to go to Chipotle to get $3 burrito bowls. Zach and I threw together costumes from a prior party - he was Sherlock and I wore the Queen of England mask, which surprisingly was the big hit at Chipotle. Ha!
In other news... while Allie has been having the time of her life, Zach has been building out a home gym. Due to how crazy busy his schedule is right now, he can't make it to his CrossFit gym so he's brought the gym home. He is really excited to bring Allie and I into the CrossFit fold now that we have the gear at home. We will see. :)
And me? Well of course I'm in the kitchen!
As previously mentioned, I enjoyed Chipotle for the first time in MONTHS! I love Chipotle so this was a welcomed re-introduction into my diet. Even though it is (usually) only rice, carnitas, guac, and lettuce, it is still such a treat.
