Weekend Round Up

It's been a couple of weeks since I did a round up! The last two weekends we were out of town photographing a wedding and fall portraits and got to see some beautiful fall colors up in the Virginia mountains. I missed doing theses round ups, though as they are a lot of fun for me to pull together for you! So without further adieu, here you go!  

Something to Eat

Skinny Pumpkin Mug Cake

I'm seriously thinking of trying this today since it's so simple and quick and has the word skinny in it. That means it's healthy, right? (recipe here)

Something to Read

The Decoration of Houses

I've just started reading this gem on home decoration and design by Alexander Stoddard, and I'm loving it. If you love interior styling and decorating and want to learn more, this book is for you. If you like looking at pretty pictures, not so much, but it is a fabulous resource!

Something to Watch

Fixer Upper

I already highlighted Chip and Joanna Gaines' show, Fixer Upper, on the blog earlier this week, but it's so good I have to mention it again. The first season is on Netflix, and if you haven't watched this show, you should. I've learned so much, and it is just a fun show to watch. Even your husband will enjoy this design show. I can't watch it without mine ;)

Something to Make

Washi Tape Candles

It doesn't get much simpler than this folks. I know it's still early, but I'm probably going to pull a few of these together for Christmas decorations soon! (instructions here)

Someone to Follow

Joanna Gaines

Alright, I promise this is the last time I will mention the Gaines' this week! ;) In addition to the show, Joanna also has a blog, where she shares some simple diy's and recipes and some about their business. Also, you can follow both her and Chip on Instagram. (You can visit the blog here. You can follow Joann's Instagram hereYou can follow Chip's Instagram here)
