Good morning and happy Monday! I hope your week went well. I jammed so many things into my schedule this week. I had a piano delivered, announced October book club, celebrated my dad’s birthday, baked cookies, continued my sweat app, shot photos for an elopement down at the beach, stayed at a bed and breakfast, went to a Fall market, decorated the porch for Halloween, had a manicure/pedicure, had wine and pizza with Caitlin, played tennis, had a movie night with neighbors and even made final plans for my wedding. It’s safe to say it was busy, but a PRODUCTIVE week! Now, let’s get this recap going (even though I already told you everything I did!) My dad turned 64 (sorry dad 😂 ) on Monday!
We had him and my mom over for sushi and Crumbl Cookies! My dad absolutely LOVES sushi and torturing himself with heeps of wasabi on it. I ordered from Akahana because they always have BOGO on sushi rolls. I ordered the Charlotte roll, bagel roll, Hawaiian roll, and spicy tuna roll! I also order their chicken lettuce wraps because they are so good.
We ended the evening outside playing cornhole. Such a fun night! On Tuesday, I finished up some leftover pad thai chicken and rice over a ginger salad. It was an excellent post-workout after finishing up my sweat app. I spent the rest of the day catching up on emails and editing. Leftover pumpkin bread for breakfast on Tuesday! I headed down the street to Lowes to pick up a few pumpkins and mums for my porch. I usually go to my local nursery, but they’ve been so busy that their selection was low. I’ll try to make it there later this week to fill in a few more spots that need mums. I love that my neighborhood is going all out for Halloween decorations! I have to get a few more scary things to add to the collection, but I can’t wait for Halloween night. I did get in a few fights with my rose bushes while adding the cobwebs. 😢Caitlin came over for wine and gluten-free pizza night on Tuesday. We sat out on the front porch for a few hours catching up. It was such a nice night to be outside with the sound of rain and zero humidity. I headed to Fripp Island on Thursday to photograph an elopement, and it was such a magical sunset! I can’t wait to make coffee and edit the rest of the photos this afternoon. The weather was perfect, and the last seconds of the sunset were bright pink. I was up early in Beaufort on Friday morning to have coffee and fit in a long walk around my favorite streets before heading back home. Of course, breakfast at Low Country produce! I’ll share the photos in a separate post from my morning and stay at the Beaufort Inn. I made grilled cheese sandwiches and tomato soup for dinner for Kyle and me. I had mine with Brussels sprouts and a habanero ranch from Tessamaes. (my grilled cheese and tomato soup)
We watched Practical Magic, and I was in bed by 8:30 pm. I only had a few hours of sleep the night before, so I was ready to hit the pillow! Of course, I’ll wake up at 7 am for the Fall market! 😊 I enjoyed a toasted marshmallow oat milk latte from Humble Cup while walking around. Being able to wear Fall my boots and jeans again makes me so happy! These boots from Target are SO comfortable. I purchased them in the brown color as well. When we got home, I had a yogurt parfait and then headed to the garage to get my workout in. Kyle sometimes does the Sweat workouts with me, which motivates me more. He’ll just use heavier weights or modify things to make them harder. On Saturday night, we headed over to our neighbors for taco and movie night! It was so nice to be able to sit outside by the fire while watching Hocus Pocus! We started Sunday morning with a few hours of tennis! I’m on a parfait kick. The rest of the day, I baked cookies (which I blogged about yesterday), caught up on laundry, and edited a few more photos from the beach wedding. Now, I’m off to conquer today’s sweat app workout!
