Mountains, Halloween Cocktails and Happy Birthday

Yesterday I drove up to the mountains of North Carolina to look at some possible sites for a couple of our retail clients.  It was absolutely gorgeous and I think it could have been peak leaf season in some of the areas.  The colors were so rich!

My Dad sent me an email with a link to a few Scary Strong CocktailsCheck them out here!  They look delicious and I may just have to make one of them this weekend!  They're called - Behind the Pumpkin Patch, The Brain Hemorrhage and Bloody Cider Punch.  How fun do they sound?!  Thanks Pops!

Today I want to wish my friend Kim (I call her Kimmy) a very happy 29th birthday!  She is expecting lil Jack any day and we cannot wait to meet him!

Yesterday I got home from being gone and had a night to myself to get things done.  Kevin went out with some of his bank friends so I always welcome the opportunity to get my condo back in order!  I switched out my winter and summer clothes (depressing!) and did some deep cleaning.  Our sweet friends Dave and Jenn stopped by too which was very fun to visit with them.  It was actually a really productive night.  Don't ya love those?

We have a busy weekend ahead including a 5k run on the airport runway, getting my hair cut and attending a wedding of some dear neighbors.  We're looking forward to it!  Happy Weekend to yall!

Gorgeous picture of autumn. I love the name Jack--I bet you're so excited to meet him! :)

Those Halloween drinks look so good--you'll have to let me know how they turn out if you do make them. Have a great weekend and good luck on your runway run!

I was in the NC mountains on the Blue Ridge parkway a few weeks ago and it's absolutely gorgeous! I love the mountains when the leaves start changing. Sounds like you have a busy busy week ahead! :)

I think that is one thing I miss most about living in the lowcountry is the lack of colors! That is a gorgeous shot of the colors.

Hope the 5k and the wedding was fun! And I also need to switch my clothes!
