Last weekend I went to Bath and Body Works with my nieces and found a new scent. It’s not super fall-ish, but I really like it. I seem to like things with the word “champagne” in them!
I needed to replace my nail polish top coat. I have loved using Orly and got another one at TJ Maxx. For only $3, I think this is a great product!
I told you the wrong scent when I talked about my two fall candle purchases. I bought “White Pumpkin” and this one… “Pumpkin Bonfire”. I love both and I am very picky about my scents.
It’s so hard, too, because you have to like the smell and what the candle design looks like on the outside!
Ok…my face is back to normal from the extreme dryness I was experiencing. Where has this been all my life? It is WONDERFUL! It will also last a really long time.
I don’t know if I have ever shown you the back of my yard and maybe no one cares? Ha! You could say that about most of the stuff I write, too! Our house backs up into an elementary school yard and I love that we have this extra space. Ernie loves it, too. He gets a few laps around the school yard most days.
I took a walk around my neighborhood and saw some fun fall decor.
This was dark – this yard has two figures hanging from trees – EEK!
And, this one might actually get a visit from the police..
Ok – the best way to do an at home mani is to sit at a table and have something to occupy you while you dry. I usually listen to a podcast. Having your hands flat on the table really is the trick.
I used my OPI Taupe-less Beach.
How do you show acts of love to your family? I make Tom’s yogurt everyday. Can he do this himself? Of course! But, it’s something I started doing for him and he appreciates it.
I put frozen berries in the big compartment and top it with a container of Oikos pro strawberry and then in the other compartment I put Nature Valley high protein granola.
He got a bonus the other day when I also made him a little charcuterie to go to take to work. He’s a lucky man, no? Ha!
I was skeptical, but man – these are good! I am happy to have some pancakes in my life now!
I need some recipes because I think you can do lots with this mix.
I picked this up on a whim and it made a great mimosa. I like bottles like this for the times in your life that you don’t want to mess with a cork. I found mine at Liquor Barn.
I finished my Hello Monday post before I did this last Sunday. I heard there would be a sailboat regatta and when managed to take the boat out and sit and watch for a couple of hours. I have no idea what was going on, but boy it sure looked idyllic!
Ernie came and was a very good boy.
My mom went to her miniature show last weekend and apparently left something behind. Tom brought this to me and asked if I would like a cup of tea. He does nice things for me, too.
I am still on the same jar of the Pixie eye patches. I like to leave them on for about an hour and I really do think they reduce eye puffiness. I would like to try a cheaper brand so let me know if you have one!
Monday night I got a wild hair and asked Tom if he wanted to meet at a new place called Waldo’s Chicken and Beer. He did and we sat outside and it was lovely and the food was great. We will be back!
I made chips/crackers out of my Cut Da Carb wraps and they were good! All of these chips are one WW point. I enjoyed them with hummus and cucumbers. This is a great afternoon snack for me!
I got bored with my last book and didn’t finish it – yet. I might finish it, but I’m not sure. I picked this up and I am enjoying the Puerto Rican cultural nods. It is set in Chicago in a predominantly Puerto Rican neighborhood but there is also an Irish whiskey distillery next door to the main character’s family restaurant.
And, again reading outside for a bit each day is filling my cup!
I think these are the bomb! I have only had the little cotton no show socks to wear with sneakers, but I wanted something for my flats and Danskos. The price can’t be beat and I am not lying when I say I didn’t adjust them a single time during the 8-9 hours that I had them on. They prevented rubbing on the heel and side of my foot. Check them out here.
So, what were your faves this week? Can you believe we are halfway through October? No! Slow down!
Happy, happy Friday!
