Fall Craft Day

So Fall Craft Day was a hit! Due to my recent obsession with Pinterest, I have created a never-ending list of “projects” to make – many seasonal. Thanks to that list, I orchestrated an afternoon of creating with a group of gals that either:

  1. Know a thing or two about crafting
  2. Enjoy saving a penny here or there

Each of us dove into a different project ranging from centerpieces to trick-or-treat buckets. #1 on my list was to decorate pumpkins that could not only last through Halloween, but right through Thanksgiving. Obviously, that meant I couldn’t carve them (who likes pumpkin seeds anyway?!).

I used real pumpkins however … add a little gold spray paint, and boom! They look magical. I did my best to stick with general fall colors and step away from anything too spooky that screamed HALLOWEEN. Plus, I’m obsessed with gold, so it seemed like an obvious color choice mandatory for everything I touched.

Other projects that were made included decorative candles, beautiful fall wreaths, and some festive wall decor. I may sound like a bit of an old lady, but it was really a great afternoon – a pile of crafts, a pile of girlfriends, and a pile of sweet treats turned into a lovely Sunday.

rojo reunion

This past Thursday night the Reichow’s got lucky and had the opportunity to eat dinner as one big family! Dad has been out and about working anywhere from Iowa to currently Florida, so it’s a bit tricky to grab him for dinner on any old weeknight. We settled in with the best company and enjoyed some tasty Mexican food at Rojo in West End. Two words – great salsa!!

I know you can’t tell, but I actually photoshopped Joe and Alyson into the mix. So, I guess I lied. The complete Reichow crew wasn’t entirely together, but almost. We miss those two crazy Californians. You can donate to the Joe + Alyson Move to Minnesota Fund with prayers daily … and while you’re at it, toss in a few heartfelt words for Daddio to land a lovely, long, stadium job right here in good ‘ol Minneapolis.  I can hardly wait for the whole crew to be back together. Total sweetness.


The night was so good. I’m not sure there’s anything better than sharing good food with such good people. Thanks for coordinating the best night of the week, Lis! You gone and done it again. Muah!

skinny dipped with a splash of blue


If I was lucky enough to make the rules, my skin would maintain a darker shade than snow white as the warm weather flies south and any hint of tan I obtained over this wild summer leaves me entirely. Regardless of the well known fact that darker skin tones wear these neutral colors best, I’m obsessed and plan to do what I can to incorporate this lovely palette deep into my fall closet. Adding the blue might make it a bit lot more bearable to check me out as I walk down the street entirely dressed in my skin tone.

For more of my random inspiration for life and style, follow me on pinterest. Or try tumblr. I say both.
