Happy Monday, folks!
As fall officially arrived this weekend, I spent a little bit of time Saturday decorating for my favorite season. I gleaned a few ideas from Pinterest (which I find overwhelming, but I’ve decided this is the norm), made a trip to Hobby Lobby, and went to work with the hot glue gun. Here’s our newly decorated-for-fall mantle:
These vases were 50% off at Hobby Lobby, and I think they are the perfect link between our typical blue and green color scheme and the fall yellows.
As for the crafty part of the decorating process, I made these guys:
My original plan was to wrap all the glass vases with twine, but as it turns out, the process is very tedious, and even OCD has a limit on how much hot glue can be taken to the fingers. 😉
Other highlights from the weekend include:
-Bowling with friends Friday night and earning what’s probably my highest bowling score of all time:
128! And that was with two gutter balls in the last frame 🙂 I was on fire up until that point.
-Bowling again Saturday with some youth and a few of our friends from the Virginia Home–a residential facility for adults with disabilities.
They always make me smile. The man about to bowl in the photo is hilarious and ever-willing to give fist bumps and secret handshakes. I shook his hand when he arrived, and he looked down at my ring and said, “Married??” I laughed and said, “Yeah, I’m married.” And he threw his hands up in the air and said, “God D***IT!” 😀
-Football–we watched the Virginia Tech game Saturday, and Andrew drove to DC to see the Redskins game Sunday with his dad and friend. Despite the Redskins losing, they had a lot of fun!
-Youth Group–love these guys and girls 🙂
Overall, the weekend was low-key, but good.
What was the highlight of your weekend?
