Our Weekend in Pics

Cockadoodle doo, mofos--it's time for another Monday!    It was a weekend.  

Friday we roamed the Mr's old haunts while I nursed a migraine.  We made a stop at an open air antique warehouse with only one other couple in it.  I wasn't overly impressed with it but there was this cool door that took the Mr back to his childhood.

I forgot to post last week that I got crafty and made my mom her stocking out of a tea towel and burlap trim.  It'll do.

Sadly, our Wayfair shag rug experiment went belly up because it just matted where our feet sat so we got a new rug from World Market.  Snagged this last one via curbside pick up.

I've always wanted a natural fiber rug but the Mr doesn't like scratchy rugs so I was afraid I'd never be able to get one.  It's still not as nice feeling under the feet as the shag but it's not as horrible as the no pile Turkish rug we had before it so we're both happy with it.

Friday, the last of my vintage books came for the top shelf of the armoire.

It's needed something to fill in that void up there that I can never seem to do anything with so it'll help tremendously filling in gaps.

Saturday I stress cleaned and actually got a lot of crap accomplished, none of which I took pics of.  

Sunday we got out and did our duty.

Grandma needed the flag changed on her grave so we walked the cemetery as our exercise to enjoy the fall colors.

We had a few grocery pick ups and dinner was apple butter BBQ pork chop over thai lime rice with mixed veggies.

Last week of October, I hope everyone enjoys it!

Oh Dawn, the recipe on the General Tso's for two is a bag of riced cauliflower mixed with either another bag of mixed veggies or a bag of riced veggies.  I add ground ginger and garlic powder.  Cook and cut up 12 oz chicken breast.  Toss the chicken in Iron Chef's General Tso's sauce.  (I had to stock up on it from Vitacost because it's notoriously hard to find but the best sauce.)  I put a little drizzle of it over the 'rice' too and top with sesame seeds.

What were you up to this weekend?

  1. That door with all the star wars stickers on it really could have been mine as a kid. I didn't have prestone stickers so I know it's not actually mine but it really reminds me of the late 70's and how I would put my star wars stickers on everything, much to the chagrin of my parents.

  2. Thank you so much for the recipe!

  3. Love these pics! The door with the stickers is like a walk back in time. The stocking is darling and your rug looks great. And the vintage books with the clocks look amazing! Girl, I have boxes full of these same books-- you need more, just let me know!! LOL
