I would first like to report that I have finally made my final decision and ordered fabric for the dining room chairs. I won't get the fabric in the mail for about 2 weeks at the most so all I can do now is wait. I'll show you which fabric I picked once I am all done and have a final reveal!
This weekend has been absolutely beautiful! Everyone keeps saying this is not typical weather...usually the rain is here by now. Well, I will enjoy every second until it does decide to show up (supposedly next weekend). I have been really pleased with this cliche autumn...sun, crisp cool air and glorious colors. It has been everything I had hoped for and more. Yay!
On Thursday night Brian and I made a trip to Target and bought some essentials plus some fake cobwebs. Last year we did them as well and had such a fun time decorating we have made it our little tradition. Friday we had a couple last minute overnight guests...our friends from home Shaun and Cat (not sure if she uses a C or K). It was so nice to see some old friends and great being able to actually host people. So we went into Seattle and had dinner then afterwards had some ice cream that was SO good. I will definitely be back. On Saturday morning we went out for breakfast which Brian and I hadn't done yet so we winged it and went to this place called Todem. It is a very small, locals only kinda place. The four of us walked in through the door and literally everyone stopped eating, quieted their conversation and all turned to stare at us. It was very awkward and I certainly have never experienced that in my whole life! It was like we entered the saloon in the wild west or something. The food was good though so I would go back. Saturday Brian and I wanted to take a drive up north so we went to Fairhaven and Bellingham. The drive was just beautiful and what a cute town! We got started later than usual so we didn't see all of Bellingham but I know we will take another trip very soon. It happened to be homecoming that night so we saw all the little high schoolers all dressed up and excited. Sometimes I forget my age and am then reminded every time I am around high school kids. Wow. I know I'm not "old" by any means but I definitely feel the age gap. I never thought that would happen. Sunday Brian and I met some friends at a pumpkin patch in Snohomish, a bit inland of Everett. I saw so many great looking pumpkins I just wanted to adopt them all and really wished I had a porch to put some on. One day! Here are some pictures from the weekend. I hope you all had a great weekend as well!
Our spooky bar
In Fairhaven we split a smoked salmon crepe
Their trash cans are quite festive
I definitely wore the wrong shoes
