Hi Friday loves! I say October don’t go because I LOVE October, but the maybe do part is to get this surgery further behind me. Exactly 1-month post-op today and feeling great. Back to regular walks and my usual shenanigans for the most part. Lol. Got some Fall cleaning up to do this weekend outside and maybe starting the decorating!! Eek..countdown is on. And Sweet BOOs if you partake in Halloween!!

1. Day Date

Well, for the first time post-surgery, Mr. Nine and I finally had a day date and we tried someplace new! There is a new and very modern brewery 25 minutes south of us, so we headed down there on a beautiful afternoon last Saturday and had the most delicious meal! It was also the first cocktail I’ve had since before surgery and that smokin pineapple peach margarita was delicious! Mr. Nine got an incredible burger with bacon jam on it, we shared some tater tots called tipsy tots with the yummy topping and I got a mahi-mahi Reuben with sweet potato fries!

2. Gift Guides
Coffee Theme Gift 

A friend of mine, who loves coffee, recently had a birthday and I compiled this gift basket for her. I’ve linked up everything you need to create your own gift basket as it was a huge hit! I had one of those Cellophane gift basket bags around it, but I put some Leopard Duct Tape to hold down the corners. I think it turned out so cute.

Hair Spray

Add some hair spray to the stocking or gift bags..these are the BEST on the market..drug store to beauty store. Low end $2.99 to high $30 but all so good!

4. Liverpool with Mr. Nine

Oh, it’s no secret, M. Nine and I love our Liverpool jeans. These black ones he is wearing are the Relaxed Straight and mine are the kick flare crop. LOVE THEM!! My jacquard moto jacket and henley are Liverpool too. We thought we looked like a couple of bad a$$es in this photo but then I had to go pose with angel wings, lol!

5. Misc. Fun
Monday ~ Pink Gift Ideas

Monster Brains Munch Mix

I cannot believe it is Halloween weekend! Back when the kids were younger, this was the most requested room mom snack ever in my history of being a room mom, LOL! I think because it was just too darn cute! Plus, it was super yummy as I had derived it from a local Amish Cookbook. You’ll find my recipe HERE in case you want to make this ghoulish! LOL

Mom's Caramel Corn

This next recipe is my mom’s most requested Fall treat! Trust me when I say, there is no better caramel corn than hers! I shared this on Instagram a while back and y’all went crazy for it, a couple people even made it that very day. Mr. Nine and I sometimes fight over this, LOL! It’s so good! 

Find the recipe HERE


Enjoy the HALLOWEEN/FALL Weekend My Pretties!!
I'll be Back Monday.
