 A Little Bit of This and That

Hi friends!  The last rose of summer is about gone and I have lots to share with you today about what I've been doing of late. In true "this and that fashion" there will be some fun pics from Halloween, Fall decor from a recent trip, just a little bit of bragging about The Mr. and, of course, some food! Let's get started. 

music concert at The Whitehorse

Last Saturday night The Mr. and one of the bands he plays in gave their annual Halloween Concert at The Whitehorse in Black Mountain, NC. I have to tell you, it was so much fun! The band members dressed up and their costumes were spectacular!  I have several to share with you. 

There were scary, creepy costumes. 

gorgeous flower costume

And beautiful flower costumes that light up in the back!

Costumes from movies!

Cat woman costumes!

Sweet costumes!

And well......costumes that aren't really costumes, lol!!

I almost didn't go to this concert but I'm so glad I changed my mind and went. I would have missed out on all the fun. 

And speaking of concerts, The Mr. played a solo at another band concert this past Tuesday and he did a wonderful job. 

He got loud applause at the end!  I'm so proud of his musical abilities. 

How about a few more photos from our day trip to Elizabethton, TN?  I love this farmhouse decor porch.  Everything looks so cozy. I think I could spend a few hours in that porch swing on one of those rocking chairs. 

And I loved this gate all dressed up for Fall with a sunflower and leaf wreath! This makes me want a white picket fence with a similar gate around our property. Alas, it wouldn't work!

And while Fall decor is pretty, so is a beautiful and healthy plate of food!  This was a tasty meal I pulled together today. Steamed rice with veggies with the addition of flaked chicken and some Durkees onions. On the side were steamer bag green beans that I sauteed in olive oil with the addition of onion powder and garlic powder. And, of course, some juicy mandarin oranges to complete the plate. This was a colorful, delicious and healthy meal!

So how's that for a little bit of this and that from my part of the world? Now, it's your turn to share a little bit of this and that from yours. I can't wait to hear from you in the comments!

And, whatever you do, please, please, please don't forget to exercise your right to vote!  Make your voice be heard!

Until Next Time,

I enjoyed your "this and that" blog post! What a fun concert you attended where the Mr. played. The food you featured looks so yummy and really pretty with such varied colors. Thank you for a voting reminder. When I early voted, I commented on the sticker which was created by a 10 year old local girl. One of the election workers replied that the girl's teacher had voted the day before and was so very proud of her student and her artwork. As retired teachers, we can certainly understand that feeling!

Enjoyed your post. I think it's great that your Mr. an play and stay active with his music.

Loved the picket fence and front porch, and your meal looked pretty good too.

Thanks for sharing your this & that!
