Snaps From This Week

30 Oct

Lots of little things have happened this week.

We won the Halloween door contest!

Trick or treating for the kids at 10th and Home.  Luis and I passed out the candy.

Afterwards the GLC (Graduate Living Center) held a party for the adults, which included a candy apple bar, witches brew, and mingling.

What did I dress up as?  I tired and hungry straight from work paralegal, haha.

A fun Halloween treat made with Halloween Oreos and pretzels with melted white chocolate.  After mixing the ingredients together either in a ball form or into bars just refrigerate for 15 minutes and it’s ready to eat.  I shaped mine into a ball form and cut away chunks as needed.  Candy corn, mini M&M’s, or anything can be added to the mix for more Halloween fun.

When it’s fall, not only do the trees change colors, but everything falls to the floor.

It’s homecoming week at Georgia Tech.  Tailgaters were throughout the campus, taking up every inch of ground for our football game against the undefeated Clemson team.  It was an amazing game, the best game I have seen this season. Everyone was pumped and it showed in our game, even with some bad calls and some things that the referees “missed” we won 31 -17.  It was a nice feeling after being 6-0, then losing two games, making our comeback and winning big.  There was lots of celebrating last night.  Happy Homecoming!

More sweet treats inspired by Southern Belle Farm, who had some adorable and very easy marshmallow treats on display. I love any dessert made with marshmallows, just like those chocolate covered marshmallow bunnies you buy around Easter. Love those things.

I made mine with an extra caramel layer.

After the caramel hardens in the refrigerator for a few minutes, add the chocolate layer.

You can add sprinkles, nuts, mini M&M’s, or my favorite; graham cracker crumbs for a Smore flavor. YUM!

Oh and please ignore my half painted thumb nail, as I was testing out a new fall nail polish, oops!

With Halloween only a day away, I am making pumpkin and squash soup!

Hope you have a Happy Hallows Eve!

Little Touches

12 Feb

I was able to cross off number 21 from my goals for the new year list on my one day off.

Just in case you don’t remember the last item on my new year goals list was to finish hanging our honeymoon pictures. THE pictures that have been sitting on our kitchen counter for the last two months just waiting for someone to hang them.

Luis has been spending all of his time at school or studying and will continue to do so until summer so, it was up to me!

Half way through this little project, Luis walked in from his study group and his first response was “Thank goodness you are the one attempting that”.

Thanks love!

I think the frames turned out really well.  Luis loved it too.

Oh and here was my snack before putting up the frames, yum!

Tuna with cherries and bok choy (Luis made it) over baby spinach with a side of avocado.

Next item to tackle will be to do something with that other blank wall.

More Love, More Pink

10 Feb

Poor Luis.

As Valentine’s Day gets closer more pink, hearts, and girly stuff appear.

Now I have attacked the bathroom.

This is the set I bought last year for my bridal shower. For now, it’s nice not having an all white bathroom.  I would like to keep this up until May, but I have a feeling even I will get tired of the pink (oh my).

And it’s not even over yet! I have more girly decor coming!

Poor, poor Luis. I am so glad he loves me =)

Hello Marigold, Gray, and Royal Blue

A Peak at our Living Room

Our living room set up so far.

(Click on a photo to enlarge)

It still needs a lot of work and some more inspiration. I have so many ideas but gotta wait for now.

Our inspiration is Georgia Tech; colors of yellow and blue with accents of grey. Even though the official school colors are yellow and white with some use of navy blue. Our version with a twist.

Bright, loud, and fun!

Marigold and Gray Pillows $25.00, Dwell Studio Collection from Target

Brown Suede Lumbar Pillows on Clearance $20.00, Potterybarn

Blueberry Ottoman on Sale $7.00, RE Collection from Target

Yellow Side Table on Clearance $3.00, RE Collection from Target

These college years are probably the only time I can get away with decorating our place with colors like these and have Luis like it.  At least until real adulthood comes around with buying our own home and then decorate with a more mature modern chic color wheel.

Love being able to use our Tako (Octopus) stuffed animal from the Osaka Aquarium in Japan into the mix… heehee

or these little fall leaves window clings I picked up from Target for a buck!

Well, that’s it until we add more to our living room… see ya!
