This week was a blur. On Monday, I thought it was Thursday all day and now that it’s Friday I feel like I blinked and have no idea what I did for the past four days. Really, nothing too exciting. The fourth quarter is always the craziest part of the year as a blogger and right now things are heating up big time. I’m extremely grateful because I had no idea how this year would go, but if nothing else I love having work as a good distraction.
I ordered some of these blue and white pumpkins from For Pete’s Sake pottery and they make me so happy! Aren’t they darling?
Mike saw this recipe on Instagram and forwarded it to me to save for later. I made it this weekend and let me tell you…. it’s divine. I did not heed the advice in the comments about reducing the sugar and I’m glad. It was perfect, as is. I didn’t frost the entire cake, instead sliced it and put a bit of icing on the side. In my opinion, that helps cut down on the sweetness so you can kind of choose how much frosting each bite gets.
TWO // Casey Neistat Is Back
A bright spot this year: Casey Neistat is making vlogs again. I love his videos and had really missed them when he went on hiatus. If you’re new to him, consider yourself lucky… you have a HUGE archive of videos to catch up on 🥰
THREE // Chinoiserie Stockings
Is it too soon to start thinking about Christmas?! I stumbled on this listing on Etsy for BLUE AND WHITE STOCKINGS. They’re making me rethink my entire Christmas decor strategy this year…. haha. So. Chic. I love the print, the size, and the gingham bow is the perfect final touch, right?!
One of my longtime internet friends is launching a podcast!! She’s been sharing amazing tidbits on her professional Instagram and I just know her podcast will also be a wealth of useful knowledge. Her podcast will cover parenting, marriage, dating, friendship, family, relationships and self-growth with various guests. I’m recording an episode with her soon and will definitely let you know when it’s live!
FIVE // Sweater Dress Under $100
A couple of weeks ago I switched my closet over to my fall/winter wardrobe. I have a bunch of “dressy” fall dresses that I doubt I’ll wear this season. I stumbled on this grey sweater dress and think it’s perfect for a low key fall. Cute but still comfy! Love the puff sleeves.
