My weekend

I had a fun weekend, so I thought I'd share it with you all.

First, my sisters, Aunt Janice, Mimi (grandma), and my cousin Julie went to Color Me Mine and painted pottery. It was PJ night, so we all wore our pj's to get a discount on the sitting fee! $1 instead of the normal $8! Well worth it to me.

Here are some pics from our night:

Bekah and Rachael, sisters

Rachael tried to copy the colors and design of this Sangria pitcher she got in Spain.

Sister Lydia

She also likes to eat the paint



The whole clan

I did a welcome sign for our house. The "Welcome" is not very centered, but I can't complain because I didn't write it! A girl who worked there did it for me because I was too scared I'd mess it up. I used lace to get the texture- fun! We'll see what it looks like when I get it back.

Then yesterday, in the spirit of Fall, we went apple picking with some friends.

Me, reliving the memories from my childhood (we had apple trees growing up)

Some of the guys- Pulkit, Bill, Josh

Love these two! Pulkit and Emily

Cute! Ariah and Ella

Then we went home and had an apple party and made yummy apple pies!

Fun weekend!

I have lots of ideas for blog posts this week, including a yummy recipe, the grand opening of my etsy shop specials, and the requested "Why I'm called Snails" post. Check back! Hope you all had a fun weekend filled with fall activities!

That's very creative of you to think of using lace for the background, looks like fun!

Also... do you notice how big my butt looks? uggh
