Happy October! My favorite month of the year! We celebrated the start of October with a busy weekend filled with family and football. Saturday night we had my parents over to celebrate my dad's birthday. We (mostly Guy... let's be honest) made an Italian feast since my parents were suppose to be in Italy for my dad's birthday but sadly the trip fell through. Thus, we brought Italy to them!
We started the evening with Italian cheeses and meats. And yes, that's a puzzle on the table. I'm obsessed and can't be stopped. I might as well be 60.
Who's observant and noticed my cheese board is in the shape of Wisconsin? You can take the girl outta Wisconsin but you can't take the Wisconsin outta the girl.
Guy made bolognase for dinner and we had an Italian Chianti but the vineyard we visited during our trip to Italy last year. And don't judge me for my awful Ikea table and chairs. We're waiting until we buy a new home to upgrade but I'd LOVE ideas on how to make this table and chairs better now if you've got any ideas!
We had my parents over Saturday night specifically so we could watch Wisconsin roll over Nebraska! Fortunately that prediction came true!
And speaking of football...did I mention that I'm obsessed with Friday Night Lights? How did I not watch this show when it was on primetime?! It's so damn good!
The rest of the weekend was spent recovering from Saturday and preparing for my busy week. I'm off to Washington DC today for work and will be there through Wednesday. It's going to be a ridiculously busy week but one that I look forward to all year.
Hope everyone had a fun start to their October! Fall is officially here!!
