oh my stars...

 It's been a little crazier than normal, but that's OK. Steven was off to Philly again this week, so I stayed super busy.
Life's happenings, in some photos:

Steven recorded Rachael Ray for me one day last week because he thought I might like this adorable gal, since she has a new cookbook full of easy Asian delights. He was right! It's definitely on my christmas list:
Last weekend I went to my parent's house and my grandparents both celebrated their 75th Birthdays! I'm lucky that each of them are a huge part of my life.
This was too cute of my mom. Dutch always thinks he's a lap dog:
 Steven drove from work on Sunday to join in and we were practically matching. Not planned!
 I've been crafting and prepping for our Chili Cookoff...Here's a sneak peak:
 Our shelves got some updates and wedding photos (finally!):
I decorated for fall! AND, I found a sunburst clock from Kirklands for only $20! I had $5 off from an old picture frame I returned. I may convert into a mirror. 
 Using art I already had from my old apartment, I spruced up our bar a little...
 I also starting playing around with our powder room plans. The walls are orange and pretty bare. I want to get a wall decal in gold of either birds on a powerline or in a tree. Or I may just paint a gold design myself?I was thinking of doing a gallery wall above the porcelin throne of photos from our first dance since our sweet friends, Meredith and Josh gave us this special print. It just so happens that Elvis came to sing the old classic for us at our reception and Steven had no idea:
I LOVE this hand towel for the bath that I picked up at Anthro when I was in Philly with STH:
My copy of SW4 came in just as I was leaving to visit my family last weekend, and I was super excited to spy our very own wedding rings, shot by Nancy!
 Steven finally returned Thursday and he snuck lots of Fiji waters for me from training:
& now he's certified! yay:)
I'm spending today relaxing and cleaning, then later I'm heading to a pumpkin carving party...I'm opting to decorate or paint, not here are some ideas:

How was your week? Any fun weekend plans?
