Weekend Recap 10/22/17 Friends in Town, A Finished Project and a Charity event

Hi friends!!!  We made it half through the week!  I am headed out of town today for work until the end of the week, but I thought I would pop in and catch up with all of you first!

How was your weekend?  Too short like mine? ;). The previous weekend my in-laws were in town for a couple days and so we could all go to the Monday night Titans versus Colts football game.  My in-laws live in Indianapolis so they were excited to come down and watch the Colts.  We all got to go in the suite with my husband’s company so that was nice too since it was a little chilly!

The whole crew!

You guys.. I just had to show y’all this.  I am obsessed with honey crisp apples.  I used to only buy cheaper apples, but once you get a taste of the more expensive ones aka honey crisp apples, you can’t ever go back.  I was excited last week when they were on sale so I did have to spend over $10 on a couple apples!  Well last Friday I asked my husband to stop by the grocery store for a couple of things.  He took this picture as proof that the store was sold out of my favorite apples because he knows that I would have questioned him. :). He (and I for that matter) think it is ridiculous to spend a ton of money on apples so he had to have proof he wasn’t just getting the cheap ones to save money. 😉 Who else loves honey crisp apples??  Aren’t they the best?


Friday night my husband took me on a little date night for some sushi and wine.  Afterwards it was so nice outside we actually walked about a mile back home so we could enjoy the night.

Later Friday evening our friends, Mary and Luke, from Cincinnati arrived and we caught up for a couple hours before heading to bead.  Saturday morning was an early one.  My mom does a lot of charity work during her retirement and one of the events she organized this year was the Food Panty day where we got enough food delivered to sort and organize to pass out to 250 families.

My mom recruited my two besties and we all got the privilege of wearing these beautiful orange vests because we were assigned “table captains.”  🙂


After the event we met up with our friends for lunch at House.


We made Mary take a picture on the pumpkin afterwards.  🙂


After a few hours we got ready for dinner and drinks with friends.  We had dinner at Sea Salt. It was really tasty, but the entree portions were pretty small.  I got this harvest salad to start and the grouper for my entree.

Afterwards we headed to a few bars downtown to meet us with some friends and listen to some live music.  We stayed out for a couple hours and then called it a night!

We spent the majority of our Sunday cleaning the house, meal prepping and finally finishing our new dining room table!!!  I am going to share all about it in a separate post soon!! I can’t wait to show you guys pictures!!  I am off to East Tennessee so I will see you all soon!! Have a great Wednesday!!
