Ashley Brooke Designs - Fall Afternoons


Good Morning and Happy Monday to you!

Here is just a peek at what I was up to this weekend”¦

Last week I mentioned that I started putting some of our Fall things out around the house, like hanging a new wreath, and ironing our festive tea towels! This weekend I kept that trend going with lighting our first Fall candle of the season (my favorite thing ever!), and whipping up a pot of chili. It may still be a whooping 85 degrees outside, and while I made chili, I even pulled out the a few of my Fall magazines, and flipped through them, dreaming about all the cashmere things!


Ashley Brooke Designs - Why Not Me

Okay, so I love me some Mindy Kaling; I think she is hysterical, and she’s totally my favorite. I’ve been dying to get my hands on her new book. I loved her first one so much that I would constantly make a fool of myself laughing out loud in public while reading! True story. Anyways, my sweet husband surprised me with this book on Thursday after a particularly grueling day in the studio and said, “I thought you might need a good laugh” (side note: this is why I love this man); every spare second I have had this weekend, I looked pretty much like this! If you are in the mood for a good chuckle, you need to order this book ASAP. Hilarious I tell you–hilarious!


Ashley Brooke Designs - Clean Sheets

Over the weekend we spent a lot of time just doing things around the house, like cooking, cleaning, fixing, washing, etc. We’ve been in and out of town so much in the past month, that those little house chores start to slip! So on Saturday and Sunday, we got to work! Lucy is a trooper and follows us around the house all day long, because if there is one thing she does not like, it is not being able to see me at all times. It’s part creepy, part sweet! But the one time that she will bend her very serious rules of eye contact is when there are fresh sheets hot from the dryer. Pretty sure this her version of heaven. It’s hilarious. 



Hope your weekend was equally as lovely, but for now I am off to go get this week started! Cheers to an extra fabulous and productive week!!  xoxo
