Hey, you all! Happy Turkey Month. My week has been a whirlwind and I cannot believe Halloween has already come and gone. I hope you didn’t eat too much candy this year – or maybe I hope you did? This is my all-time favorite candy to give out and eat on Halloween. I know it’s a very controversial choice. I tried to keep my candy intake to a minimum – I’m just saving my calories for my favorite Thanksgiving dinner recipes. I can’t wait for my pineapple and honey-glazed ham. Did y’all catch this year’s “I Told My Kids I Ate All Their Halloween Candy” It did not disappoint. Those poor adorable kids LOL! But seriously, it is always so funny.
Also, is anyone obsessed with Mike Flanagan? He just released his new series on Netflix called, “The Fall of the House of Usher.” It’s terrifying and beautiful all at once. You have to give it a try. If you saw the Haunting of Hill House and liked it – I promise you will love this too. I know Halloween just ended, but maybe you can finish up that trick-or-treat candy while diving into this masterpiece.
Okay, on to less scary topics. Did you catch the release of 1989 Taylor’s Version? Are any of you deep into the Taylor Swift conspiracies? Please let me know because I am obsessed with thinking that Reputation Taylor’s Version will be dropping any day now. One can dream, right?
My entire week has consisted of listening to the album while checking out the amazing finds at “Stuff Thrifts” in San Francisco, eating Salt and Straw ice cream, and reviewing electrical specs for the cottage. The systems set up of interior design is the least sexy part of the whole thing, but I am super glad we are doing it right. But on another note I installed these super cool eco-strip lights in my stairwell with my friends at Home Depot and the look is magic – check out the DIY here.
Ok, I promise to stop talking in just one second – but you HAVE to read Handmade Murder by Emma Chapman at a Beautiful Mess. She self-published – and I am already halfway through her first book. It’s a nail-biter and I am going to finish it at the cottage on Sunday in front of a fire in my wood-burning oven Pour yourself a delicious cucumber gimlet and check it out.
