End of Week Wrap Up

Happy Anniversary
 I have not been very accessible this week, but it's all for good reason.  I'll start by saying that yesterday was the 3-year anniversary for the BF and I which I found out after coming downstairs and being greeted by this lovely bouquet sitting on the coffee table.  Now, don't get me wrong, it's not that I don't know when our anniversary is, it's just that, and this I'm positive of, he picks a different day every year just so he can beat me to the punch.  As I understand it, the anniversary is Columbus Day Weekend (which is roughly around the 9th/10th every year).  Apparently, he understands it as the Sunday of Columbus Day Weekend 3 years ago which happened to be October 7th.  This seems a little fishy to me, but one thing we're both sure of is that 3 years have gone by in a flash and we're still very much in love.

As for the Yard Sale last weekend...
 It was pretty much a bust.  We woke up early, organized everything outside, hung signs everywhere (including the dog park, dunkin donuts, the bagel store, etc) and settled in for a bustling day.  After 3 hours, we had made a grand total of $21.  So we gave things to friends who had stopped by to cheer us on, loaded up the car with gobs of stuff to be donated to Goodwill and called it a day.  The good news:  our basement is much more clutter free and some of the better stuff we saved and posted on Craigslist and Ebay.  So far from those efforts we have made a grand total of $245.  So I'm feeling pretty good overall and we still have a few more things to offload.

Random Going-On's
I made these cupcakes.  They were pretty delicious.  Pumpkin cupcakes with maple frosting and Heath bar topping.  Yum!  The recipe came from the October issue of House Beautiful.  The Barefoot Contessa came up with the recipe and it was yummy as promised.  The best part...while baking, the whole house smelled like Fall.

 I am going to attempt to make this DIY sunburst mirror.  Janell from the blog Isabella & Max Rooms did a tutorial on how to make it here.  I have gathered all the exact same materials, so this is definitely happening.  I'll keep you updated on the progress.
