An Almost Perfect Saturday

My #1 came home last Saturday to spend some time with the Mister and me.  We were delighted and then she broke it to us that all of her friends went home for the weekend and she had no one to hang out with.  And here we were thinking she missed us!

We spent the day going to lunch and shopping for warmer clothes such as leggings and sweaters because she absolutely has "nothing to wear."

That night, the Mister made the most delicious chicken vegetable soup while #1 worked on her "favorite things" for her old Mama's blog.

This is one the centerpieces I did from all those pumpkins and gourds I bought at Calloways.
This needlepoint pillow was my "big buy" of the day.  Put this on for you, Sista... I know you're jealous.
Between this delicious soup and my pumpkin latte candle burning , the house smelled so yummy!
My favorite mugs.  I have about a dozen of them would love to buy more but La Madeleine doesn't carry them anymore.
My girl is multi-tasking every minute!
Working on her "favorite things."
Gypsy wanted me to tell you that her favorite things both begin with "B" - bone and bed. 
It was almost a perfect Saturday night - if #2 was home... it would have been just perfect!
Have a wonderful Thursday!

I'm Katie. Thanks for stopping by my blog. I am an empty nester meandering through my middle-aged years while entangled in the never-ending process of renovating an antique home on the South Shore of Massachusetts. I love to write about books, movies, TV, celebrities, decorating, and weekend adventures. My favorite writing material is derived from my family: the Mister, my girls, #1 and #2, and my two untrainable, rambunctious pups, Chowdah and Chili.


  1. Looks like a cozy and fun family day! Your daughter is a beauty.

  2. I've learned not to ask why they come home to visit. No matter what the reason, it's wonderful! Glad you had a good time with your big girl.

  3. Hi so nice to hear from you and find your blog. Your daughter is beautiful and what a warm inviting home she had to come home to. The soup looks AMAZING! Hope you have a fabulous weekend.
