Followers Fest!!

PhotobucketI keep reading about "October Followers Fest" so I figured why not join in! I am going to be linked up over at Much Love, Illy So you should go check it out and link up your fall post!

Because of work and school I do not get to enjoy relaxing fall days too often but I did get to enjoy one while Travis was home : )

In the morning we had breakfast at Real Food Cafe...BEST place for breakfast in Grand Rapids, even though I don't actually like breakfast : ) I do like their food a lot.

After breakfast we visited his grandparents then went to Cannonsburg {ski hill} to walk up the hill and take pictures of the trees, sadly we were not aloud to walk on the hill because of construction : (
After that we went to Meijer and got painting pumpkin supplies and beer! 
I have decided painting a pumpkin is a WAY better idea than carving it!! : ) 
Incase you wanted to give it a try here is what you will need...
To make smaller dots I tried a Q-tip and a very small paintbrush but neither worked so instead I used the other end of the paint brush and it worked really well! 
TA DA! The finished product...
Oh how I love Fall : )
Happy FRIDAY!!!


  1. You two are so sweet! :) I love your polka dot pumpkin! Ahh the last picture...I took one just like it today that I will share tomorrow...only since I live in the desert...there are no leaves! :(

  14. I love how your husband sat on the porch reading while you crafted. That's love. I hate carving pumpkins. Am I allowed to say that as an American? I'm all over paint though. Done.
