 I had Friday evening to myself, so after a very busy week, I headed home to indulge in a big glass of rosé and a few hours away from my email! I enjoyed some of the last avocado of the season for dinner, and after a few chapters of The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo, which I've recently found myself engrossed in (I'm always so late to the party!), I crawled into bed for a little political drama under the covers.

John and I spent Saturday blissfully ignoring everything but each other; we curled up with Dirty Jobs reruns until we were desperate for lunch, and after filling up on tacos and Mexican coke at Underdogs, we headed back home for a long nap! Eventually we put on our best matching gingham for a provisions trip to Andronico's, and made a simple dinner with a spectacular end–pumpkin bread pudding! In keeping with our fall theme, we watched Clue for the first time in ages (I'd forgotten what a great movie it is!), and headed to bed early–the perfect cure for a challenging week. 

We were up early on Sunday, and after Saturday's indulgence, we decided to make the day count! I grabbed the last few things I needed to complete my Halloween costume while John hit the wash-and-fold and our local co-op, and then I handed John the keys so he could grab beer-brewing ingredients (we're trying White House Honey Ale) and scores from school. With the house to myself, I painted a pair of sneakers to look like saddle shoes and practiced a little yoga in the living room–a perfect Sunday afternoon, if you ask me. John made the most beautiful butternut squash risotto while I got cleaned up, and we lifted glasses of rosé to a truly restorative weekend.


Tell me, what were you up to this weekend? Halloween parties, battening down the hatches or even working on your holiday shopping? I confess, I may have crossed a few things off my list this weekend!

  1. I need to hear more about this Halloween costume! I feel so lame for not having a costume this year but since we seem to be in the midst of a Hurricane, I the trick or treaters are going to be far and few between come Wednesday

  9. We are currently hiding from hurricane sandy. I'm watching branches snap off the trees and soar by my window. So, I'm alternating coffee with wine: coffee to keep me cozy and wine to take off the edge.

  15. I have tried to read Girl with the Dragon Tattoo on multiple occasions and can never get past the first few chapters. I keep hearing how amazing it is so I keep trying but I think it is like egg nog and I have to admit I just don't like it.
