This and That

Hi everyone! Hope you're having a good day. It's been so hot and humid here...

100% humidity in November! Really, Houston??? Really???

In other news, my farmhouse sink came 6 days EARLY! Yay! 

Isn't she pretty? (the sink, but the cat is pretty too) I couldn't wait to take her out of the box and stare at her beauty. :) 

Now we need to set up an appointment for the counter guys to measure and then we can finally get the quartz installed. 

I thought I'd share a few Halloween pics with you. Here's Holly inspecting a pumpkin...

As you can see, she has to check out anything new that comes into the house. 

And here she is napping...

Relaxed much? 

My son and his friends dressed up as the kids from the movie "IT" for Halloween...

I love these kids! 

My boys carved a couple of pumpkins...

Obviously, one of them is obsessed with all things Apple. He just got the new iPhone X and is loving it. It's so weird how he opens his phone with his face. Lol! I guess facial recognition is the future. :) 

I shared a pic of this wine on IG the other day...

Côtes de Provence Rosé

Over the last 24 hours, I had cleaned up cat throw up, a toilet that overflowed and a mysterious smelly liquid oozing from a hole in the bottom of my outside trash can. I think it had to do with pumpkin guts. Eww. So I figured I deserved a glass of wine. :) 

There's a funny story that goes with this pic...So I read an article about this particular wine recently. It won several awards and was touted as being one of the best wines around. At only $8, I figured I had to try it. It was coming to the United States and was going to be available exclusively at Aldi stores, but only while supplies last.

So I marked my calendar for the release date. On that day, my mom and aunt went with me so we could each get a bottle. Or two. Or three. Only $8, remember? :) When we got to Aldi, we went straight to the wine aisle and spotted the sign for it, but the shelf was empty! The horror! Lol! My mom and aunt continued to look for it while I marched up to the check out lady, holding the ad up for her to see, asking if they were already sold out. She just stared at me and silently pointed at the huge display right in front of me. Hee hee! I didn't even bother to go get my mom and aunt, I just yelled "OVER HERE! I FOUND IT!" They came running and we each happily grabbed a few bottles and got in line to check out. Meanwhile, I noticed several other people in line casually grabbing some bottles too. They didn't know why we were so excited. A classic case of FOMO, I guess. Ha! Anyway, the reviews were right, it's very good. 

And I feel the need to say that no, I didn't drink all that wine in the picture above. We had company over the night before and this was what was left. :)

One more thing...Here is the list of all the new Christmas movies on the Hallmark channel...

Thanks to my aunt for sending me this. I've already got my DVR ready! 

Did y'all have a good Halloween? I'll be keeping my fall decor up until after Thanksgiving, as usual. But then it's ALL Christmas! 

Don't forget to set your clocks BACK an hour tonight!



  1. Hi Lisa! Wanted to pop over and meet you - you left very sweet comments over at Poofing the Pillows when Stacey featured my home in her tour. ♥

    YOU have a wonderful home too - I recognize our good tastes in occasional chairs!

    I loved the kids dressed at IT - man that was a spookey one, I hate clowns, haha.

    I am now your newest follower. Have a wonderful weekend!!

  2. Love the new sink and glad Holly approves! I will check out that wine at Aldi by us. Your son and his friends are the best and so creative. Glad they had fun this halloween. Have a great start to the new week.

  3. Oh that sink! It's just beautiful...and clearly your kitty has very good taste! xo

  4. Cats are just so funny about immediately noticing anything new or different. Oh my, you've gotta love how well-adjusted cats in loving homes sleep! I'm anxious to see your kitchen all finished...the sink is lovely.

    Ordinarily I'd be starting on my Christmas decorating, but our son and family are coming for Thanksgiving, so I won't get my Christmas on until after they leave. I'm still really enjoying my Fall decor, but I plan to make a few changes to make it more about Thanksgiving.

    Hope you have a great week, Lisa!

  5. I love watching those Christmas movies too! I never knew there were that many to come! I really like your new sink. I can’t wait to see everything when it’s all installed. It has been cooler here lately. I’m used to that southern humidity though. Sometimes it wants to hang on forever.
