APPLE ORCHARDS AND HOUSE HUNTING

Hey everyone!  Happy Sunday!

I just got back from a nice, relaxing weekend up at my parent's house.  My boyfriend was coming back from a trip to Connecticut for work, so I was all by myself this weekend.  So instead of staying home alone, my mom invited to come back and stay in my old bedroom for the weekend.  On Friday, as soon as I got home from work, I quickly packed up my suitcase with enough clothes for two days, and then packed up the car and headed out.  Traffic was bad as usual, but I'm happy I got going when I did because it would've gotten much worse if I would have waited any longer!


FRIDAY NIGHT

I finally pulled into my parent's driveway and my dad was outside fixing up the front door.  Later, my mom came home from work and brought pizza with her...YUM!  Then we went for a walk around the neighborhood.  And I am sure glad I packed a sweatshirt because it was COLD out.  It is definitely not summer anymore.  I was pretty tired, so I called it an early night.

SATURDAY

We got up nice and early to get ready to head out to the apple orchard.  Normally we go to Pine Tree Apple Orchard (which is still my favorite), but we decided to try out Aamodt's Apple Orchard in Stillwater, MN.  I brought my camera and took a couple of pictures.






I bought some apples to make apple crisp later this week (I'll have to make a recipe blog post!), and some apple cinnamon muffins which were DELICIOUS!

Then, we headed to visit a couple of Parade of Homes houses.  If you are unfamiliar with it, during Parade of Homes, you can visit new houses to see how they are designed, and a lot of times they are really, REALLY nice and expensive houses.  Being a HUGE fan of interior decorating and HGTV, I love the time of year when Parade of Homes is happening.  We visited 5 different brand new homes, and it made me excited to maybe buy my own house one day!  I also really enjoy looking at the huge kitchens and master bathrooms - so fancy!

Then we came home, and my dad grilled some burgers and we had a salad on the side - it was delicious!!!
After dinner, my mom wanted to put a movie on, and she was surfing the channels to find Fiddle on the Roof on, so she made the executive decision to watch that.  I didn't realize that the run time of that movie was 3 hours and 1 minute, so that basically took us to bed time.

SUNDAY

Breakfast was the apple cinnamon muffins I bought at the apple orchard.  Then I packed up and headed back to my apartment.  So this afternoon has consisted of errands/chores: getting gas in my car, running to Target for a couple of groceries, doing loads of laundry, sweeping/mopping the kitchen floors, and putting out my Fall decorations.  I even found time to head to the gym earlier this afternoon.  Now I have a face mask and a hair mask on, and I am writing this blog post with Bob's Burgers on TV, sipping a hot chocolate with a pumpkin scented candle burning in the kitchen.  It smells SOOOO good! 

What a nice weekend!


What have you been up to this weekend? ☺️
