Happy Monday to all! O.k., we find ourselves in the middle of October. Have you done your fall bucket list items? I have savored some apple recipes and a couple of pumpkin recipes. I have bought my fall signature scent for myself – my L perfume. I have enjoyed my pumpkin bourbon candles. As for the rest of my list, I need to get on it!
So, I think I have found my fall clog! I ordered the Mia Sofia clog off of Amazon and it is the perfect heel height, the perfect color, and pretty comfortable. I have not done the 7 hour on my feet teacher test, but I will report back. I put them on immediately when they arrived.
I also had some time this weekend to make my apple sangria the way I prefer. I top it with this apple ICE sparkling drink. I like all of my cocktails to have a fizzy note. Here is my apple cider sangria recipe: cut up apple chunks if you want and place in bottom of glass. Pour in one shot Fireball, one shot bourbon, about a 1/2 cup of cider and give it a good stir or shake. Pour into a glass of ice and top with sparkling apple or gingerale. This is an individual serving. I make a huge batch for Thanksgiving but I just dump and don’t have an exact recipe.
We had a crisp fall day Friday so after school I enjoyed one of my favorite fall pastimes. Reading a good book on my patio. I recommend this book, guys! It’s chick lit, but well written and I’m drawn into the story of childhood friends who open a restaurant after suffering losses. Bonus, if you are a foodie, you will enjoy the food descriptions.
After the patio time, my husband brought home Chick Fil A for dinner which we hadn’t had in a long time so we enjoyed family time and I went to bed per usual – 9:00 p.m. I am going to bed at 9 and waking between 5-6 all seven days a week in this season of life, people. It’s sad, but true.
Saturday morning my son had to leave the house at 7 to be at his debate tournament. I hung out with him for a bit and then I was off the hook because I wasn’t a judge. I did my grocery shopping, a Target run, and met my parents who were in town.
I’m posting these pictures for laughs. I had it in my head that I wanted a fall felt hat. Target was a fail and I look like a park ranger. Enjoy!
I took my Dad to buy running shoes while my mom went to an event. Then the non- debate son and my husband and my mom and dad and I ate lunch at McAllister’s. Iced tea is a rare treat for me.
My parents left us to go to a couple of stores before heading home and I talked my husband into going to the polo match (last of the season) after we visited our son at his debate tourney. We had some tailgate charcuterie and I brought my apple sangria.
It was so interesting to attend my first polo match. I had asked four couple friends to join us but everyone had obligations. I’m hoping to get some people together next season. I wore my very old Target sweater cape thing and my only Nickel and
Suede earrings and old booties because I thought it could be muddy.
After the match, we picked up debate son and I made a dinner of Hawaiian ham and swiss sliders, leftovers and apple slices and carrots. We were all tired. My husband and I watched a really weird and disturbing movie called Suburbicon on Netflix with Matt Damon. Has anyone seen it? Wondering what others thought?
Sunday was cold and rainy and I did some reading, laundry, sheet changing, blogging, school work and just some tidying of the casa.
Boys had tons of homework to do so hub and I took in the movie Night School. It was cute and made me laugh several times.
I read on the patio again while it was lightly raining – my favorite. I had a hot chocolate. I made dinner, we ate, and watched some Telly.
Hope you have a great week!
