This was our first weekend home in several weeks and let me tell you -- it's nice to be home.
As much as I love to 'go and blow', I love staying put too.
As I mentioned last week, my old friend Alicia decided to visit this weekend.
I'll have all the deets on that tomorrow but today I thought I would share a few pictures of the house as I was getting it ready for her visit.
A house guest is the best excuse to pick up fresh flowers.
I love the added peppers.
It makes it more Fall-like.
Remember when I asked for your opinion about pillows?
Well, they arrived just in time for our house-guest.
I was able to find the down pillow forms at Pottery Barn.
You can see some of my other Fall-decor too.
I'm going to add a few solid color pillows too.
A house guest is another excuse to make Fall muffins.
My plan was to make these pumpkin muffins Hopsy posted on her blog last week but I too had major problems finding canned pumpkin.
After 3 stores I gave up and my Mom suggested using applesauce.
They were super yummy and easy!
Three ingredients: yellow cake mix, applesauce and pecans.
Bake for 20-minutes at 350
They were very moist, you simply have to try them!
Even Buddy liked them!
We also made homemade pizzas Friday night too for her visit and they were tasty as usual but I didn't take any pictures.
That's all I have for today, it's rained a majority of this weekend and I'm not ready to go back to work.
