Is it really Friday already? I feel like it has flown by, but then again it has been a super busy week. Either way I am so excited for this weekend. I don’t have any definitive plans for the weekend and I am not mad about it!
For those who know me well though I can never rest on my laurels (does anyone even say that anymore). Anyhoo, knowing me I can be found shopping, finishing up my Fall Centerpiece DIY project, baking and hopefully clearing out my DVR. If you want to get sneak peaks of all my weekend hooligans then check me out on Instagram here.
Now on to my Five Things I Am Loving, Doing, Buying etc this week.
One. I am so excited about taking a Cake Decorating class in October. It is 4 sessions for 3 hours each. It is no secret that I love to bake but everything I have ever made has all been self-taught so to actually learn from someone else will be a new experience and I can’t wait! I have thought about opening my own bakery but I am a little to scared at this point. We shall see what the future holds though, never say never.
Two. This was a book that I grabbed at the last second while waiting to checkout at the library, heaven forbid I be without a book to read every day. I am so glad I picked it up though. It was very thought provoking, and I found myself actually crying while reading this book. The pain and sorrow in certain parts was so overwhelming.
Details: Two women running away from their marriages collide on a foggy highway, killing one of them. The survivor, Isabelle, is left to pick up the pieces, not only of her own life, but of the lives of the devastated husband and fragile son that the other woman, April, has left behind. Together, they try to solve the mystery of where April was running to, and why. As these three lives intersect, the book asks, How well do we really know those we love—and how do we forgive the unforgivable? – taken from Amazon
Three. Since I redecorated my bathroom I needed to update my Magnetic Makeup Board. For the original instructions you can go here. I need it to match a little more with the new design. If you ask really nice maybe I will do a post on the new makeup board project.
Four. I love Marilyn Monroe, even though she left the world at a young world she was flawed but she was also fearless. She really went after what she wanted and didn’t make any bones about wanting what she wanted. I really respect and admire that quality. I can not remember where I found this image but it anyone has seen it let me know so I can credit properly.
Five. I haven’t decided yet what I am going to try and accomplish from my Fall Bucket List this weekend. It may be the Apple Cider or the Homemade Pie but I am going to try and finish my Dining Room Centerpiece. I am going for something sort of like this, thought it will be paired down a bit (I would like it a little simpler):
With this being the inspiration for the centerpiece:
