Ten on Tuesday [No.33]

Where has the time gone, y'all?!
I feel like it was just the end of September & now we're almost halfway through November.
It's been a busy month so far, but I'm looking forward to Thanksgiving & the holiday season that is coming up!
The first big update deserves the number one spot this week & that's our freshly painted doors & trim!
We've been slowly working on making improvements to this house since before we were married & this was a huge part of that.
I chose the Sherwin William's color Salty Dog for the doors (a beautiful cobalt/royal/navy blue combo) and Roman Column for our columns & trim.

The next pick will be new light fixtures for beside the doors!

My Fall Book Review is up on the blog & two of those books were total favorites-I mean, the kind I'll reread & that's serious!

Also don't forget to check out my Hostess Gifts Under $25!
These would make great gifts for friends, co-workers, your child's teachers, neighbors, or whoever-many of the shops also have free shipping!

If you're looking for the most perfect holiday dress, this is it! 🎄

Even though I've been without my XM radio for over a month now (one day my truck won't be in the shop anymore, maybe) I'm still on a country music kick-I've just been getting it from tv.
Lee Brice was on Kathy Lee & Hoda the other day & I fell in love with "Songs in the Kitchen". It's such a sweet song!

And of course I watched most of the CMA's last week & like the rest of the country I fell in love with Carrie Underwood's tribute to all of those in the industry that had passed away in the last year & the victims of the Las Vegas shooting.

And my main man, Eric Church (who should've been Entertainer of the Year, but I digress) performed one of his most underrated songs; Chattanooga Lucy & I fell more in love.

If you're watching alllll the Hallmark Christmas movies (like me!) then you might want to print out this drinking game.

If you're planning on renovating (or building!) a house, you might want to check out Jillian's list of What to Know During a Home Renovation.

What I've been watching lately:
Alias Grace (on Netflix): This is based on another Margaret Atwood novel, the same woman that wrote The Handmaid's Tale) I've got one episode left & it's so captivating right now!
Elizabeth Smart Autobiography: This has been on A&E in a two part series & I've just been so interested in it. It's one of those bad stories with a good ending, and now I really want to read her book.
This is Us: I kind of got behind watching this season's episodes because I was bored with it by the end of last season, but this season has been so good so far. I'm looking forward to learning how Jack dies and following the foster child that Beth and Randall have in their home.

Last week my sister & I went to The Barn (the wedding venue my family owns) and helped decorate for the Christmas season, I couldn't resist snapping a quick iPhone shot of the surrounding mountain with the fog rising off-it was beautiful!

Y'all, Jimmy Kimmel's Mean Tweets are my favorite to watch, but when you get the country music artists to read them they're even funnier.

Y'all know I've been on a kombucha kick-I love the stuff!
I've tried other brands & Kevita is my favorite, but I tried the Tart Cherry flavor this past week & it's a new favorite.
If you're a fan of slightly sour then you'll really like kombucha, I think.

Let me know below what you're up to this week, I'd love to know!

Until next time. . .
