MY FIVE THINGS

October 19, 2018

Here are the five things I'm randomly into this week... in case you weren't by now quite sure what this series is all about lol.

 

BUFFALO CHECK PUMPKINS 

 

I love decorating pumpkins... lemme clarify... "decorating" - carving on the other hand is something I've never really conquered.  But painting or embellishing is another thing.  My initials, house number, turquoise ones for my niece's food allergies... I thought I had done it all.  Until I saw these buffalo check ones from positivelysplendid.com.  I LOOOOOOVE this!  I'm so trying it... but to be honest I think I'll get my pumpkin from Michael's so I can take them back out next year... I HATE throwing away a good project like this one at the end of the season.  

 

 

 

DROPPING TEMPERATURES

 

You know I'm never ready for summer to end but lets be real... the level of mugginess & humidity we were experiencing in early October was kinda ridiculous!  So when the temps started falling this week believe it or not I was into it.  After all if it has to be fall at least let me wear new clothes!  Now if the temps could just stay right here & not get any colder that would be just perfect. I know... dream on dreamer.

 

MUMS

 

People are telling me I spend too much money switching everything out seasonally... especially on things that are just gonna die.  But I can't help it... I am obsessssssed with the beautiful autumn colors... especially with the mums!

 

 

 

PUMPKIN DIP 

 

I looooove seasonal recipes too... especially sweet ones like this from kraftrecipes.com.  And you know I'm actually a sucker for presentation also - and serving in a pumpkin is so CUTE!  Unless it's one of those throwing up guacamole drunk pumpkins... those are gross.  

 

 

 

"THE TATTOOIST OF AUSCHWITZ"

 

OK - so my other four things I'm obsessed with this week are all light & fluffy.  But I had to get a little deeper with this one.  This is our October book club selection & it's so captivating!  It's written so beautifully & is so touching & moving... even though any book on this topic is obviously so sad... such a dark & absolutely horrifying time in our world's history.  But every once in a while I think we have to remind ourselves of how something like this could happen in a modern world to vigilant & prevent it from happening again. 

 

So there you have it... what are you into this week?  Any fall or autumn related things you're flipping out over or a book I have to check out?

 

Cheers - Hal
