First, I want to say I am thinking of all of my friends in the path of Hurricane Ian. I know that is not enough to say that, but I hope everyone is safe out there, and I am thinking of you.
Here are some things that were my favorites this week:
Sunday night, we got to help celebrate my friend Heather’s 50th birthday. She had a few of us over and it was really sweet. It is rare to get to celebrate on ones’ actual birthday, so that was really special.
This cake is called a shadow cake from a local bakery and it is to die for!
I brought the cheese and the raspberry brie in puff pastry to put on the board:
This week our PTA gave us some treats in the lounge and I think this is my new favorite La Croix flavor – Black Razzberry.
And, I tried lime flavored potato chips and they were surprisingly good!
I broke out the Target Universal Thread dress and boots one day. It felt very fall out, so I wanted to break out the fall clothes!
And, another fall outfit:
I bought some Danskos about a month ago and finally got to wear them:
This is really good! I think they changed the label, but it has a tiny bit of sparkling essence to it and it’s a screw top!
I picked this up for Heather at Trader Joe’s because I asked if I could help. It’s really good! Peach Bellini is the flavor. I think you can only get it at TJ’s and I plan to get it again for myself.
I had my faux pearls shortened. I took them to a local jeweler who said they had to all be individually re-tied and that very few people in town do this anymore.
Hall bath has had drywall applied!
This isn’t a favorite, but…
My next door neighbor at school told me about “quiet quitting” your job. You don’t actually quit, but you stop doing anything beyond your workday. You basically do the bare minimum.
Have you heard of this? Is this because employees think they have the power now because so many fields are hurting for people? I am trying to have more work/life balance this year, but I always want to bring my best.
