Wednesday Weekend Windup {Happy Hallooooooooweeeeen}

Boo! I can't quite believe that it is time to celebrate Halloween. We have taken some truly glorious fall walks lately and each one has really reminded me more of September than October. But, I am trying to get in the mood! Decorating the house has really helped! There is a lot of spooktacular fun this weekend to help get in the action. Here are our picks:

(PS--I am going to try this in more of a snapshot format this time, here it goes!)

Something for the Whole Family in Frankfort, Kentucky

**Disclosure: No compensation was received for this post. All opinions are 100% my own.

Chocolate. Shopping. Bourbon. History. You can find it all in Frankfort, Kentucky! Whenever we are in the area, a stop is a must. So, on our way back to Chicago from North Carolina we had to make a visit! The capital of Kentucky welcomes us with a pleasant downtown, a touch of colonial history and famous Kentucky bourbon!

Family Time at Oak Island, North Carolina

**Disclosure: No compensation was received for this post. All opinions are 100% my own.

My sister and her family have been vacationing in Oak Island, North Carolina every year for quite some time. This year marked the year that we were FINALLY able to join them and I am certainly glad that we did! Oak Island is a relaxed yet friendly town situated on the southern barrier island of Oak Island. The seaside town is a little over an hour north and east of Myrtle Beach but could not be more different. The calm and homey atmosphere is very welcome to families on vacay. An excellent place for a little rest and relaxation!
