November, You're Blushing

It seems like I was just whining about Monday, doesn't it?

TGIF, y'all, for real.

As soon as I get my hands on a camera that actually works, I will be posting more pictures of the apartment. My cracked and beat-up IPhone4 (WHAT. what. represent.) fails every time I try to capture the crumbling plaster and peeling paint of our current abode.

Rather than a weekend of big plans, W and I will be relishing in November, which happens to tie October for my favorite non-summer month. I seriously love Thanksgiving--always have, which means I have an equally serious love for the month in which it falls. My favorite thing to do is watch the Macy's Day Parade and nibble on my dad's famous stuffing, which he doesn't stuff in the bird since we fry our turkeys in South Carolina (read that last part in your best Honey Boo Boo voice). W thinks that it is so lame and so weird to watch the parade--I mean, who actually does that?

Millions,W. Millions of people. Its the freaking Macy's Day Parade! Back off.

November means that family time and delicious food and good movies and great music and parties and friends and happiness are just around the corner. It really is getting to be the most wonderful time of the year.

And so, this first weekend of this my-tied-for-first-place-favorite-non-summer-month will be spent doing my favorite things:

I have asked and W has agreed that we shall grill out Friday and Saturday night (maybe Sunday, too??). Because grilling sans mosquitoes is a godsend.

Cap and I will be going to an estate sale Saturday morning.
Looking for:
1. Dining room chairs to replace the ones I sold in our August yard sale so that people will actually be able to sit for Thanksgiving, which I am hosting. Yeah, I didn't really think that one through....
2. Serving pieces and utensils.
3. Etched mirror to go above my dresser.
4. Bowls that will go with the Horchow.

The leaves are really putting out the goods today, so I'm hoping the weekend is just one, long golden and delicious day. I plan to stare at some leaves for a while, hopefully from the comfort of my lawn chair. W and I are totally those weird people who sun themselves in the middle of the front front yard. Wrapped in blankets. Maybe sleeping. Drooling? Yep.

Hiking. There's a new trail I want to check out.

Table fixing, since our kitchen island leg broke (and sent my beautiful glass bowl shattering to the ground).

And, fire pit!!

Have a wonderful weekend! Follow me on instagram (bri_jackson) to see my "currently coveting" posts and our steals as we wheel and deal at the sale!
