Not to be super boring and only talk about the weather for two days straight but CAN YOU SEE THOSE BLUE SKIES? I never thought I’d be wandering the streets of New York City in November with no jacket and spending Sunday afternoons in my Minneapolis backyard comfortably playing with that giant grey dog of mine. T’was a wonderful few days of sunshine and adventure, let’s hope it continues!

Friends, I’m keeping this one brief today. It’s 70 degrees, I just got off a plane from Newark and I’d much rather be outside to stretch my limbs before the darkness of daylight savings time kicks in. Hope you had a wonderful weekend, your football team is winning and the sun is shining where you are too. Enjoy this links from around the web!
Another weekend, another wedding. That might just become the Erickson households’ new motto. We’re jetting off again and this time we’re heading to the east coast. We’ve got a few days in New Jersey, a day in NYC and hopefully some Z’s on the flight because this old lady stayed up too late watching the Cubs WIN THE WORLD SERIES! What?! The snapchats of my sister in Wrigleyville last night looked like something else. I’m sure the city will be abuzz for weeks to come. Have a great one, friends!

Over the weekend, I dragged the Red Head to Menards to take advantage of the final day of the 11% rebate and we bought an awesome patio door. Our first big house project is ahead and I can’t wait to share the progress. It’s going to get worse before it gets better but the thoughts of having a patio door come spring are carrying us through. I can almost feel the breeze now…

Happy Halloween, guys! Any big plans? I’m running home to rake up the yard (it’s getting really bad!) and make an appearance at a neighbor’s Halloween bash. We’re still getting to know the new ‘hood to I’m excited to put some faces to houses and check out the trick-or-treating scene. While I tackle the night of fun, cocktails and spooky times, enjoy these links from around the web this week (a day late, as usual).
Wooohooo! It’s Friday, guys! Despite a lingering cold, I’m am so excited for the weekend ahead. Date night with my Red Head, a Menards run in the morning, a quick trip to Kentucky and a quiet Sunday back at home. Let’s do this!

As a person with TWO non-functional fireplaces at this moment, this seems like the next best option. Fill it with pumpkins and gourds!

Whoa, talk about a quiet blogging week! Quiet here means chaos in the real world but it has been good chaos, really good chaos. Busy days at work, long hours on set, evenings tackling house projects, weekends with family and a wedding of long-time friends. Not too much to complain about, in my humble opinion. Now, though, it’s catch-up time and maybe some Vikings game viewing. Enjoy these links from around the web this week!
Slowly, but surely, every light in the new house is being furnished with an Edison bulb. The Red Head is confused but I’m loving it! Give me those exposed filaments (is that the right word?) and curved glass, please!
