September Happenings

A new week and a new month start today. I welcome October but it feels like September flew by in a blink of the eye. Looking back at everything that happened the last few weeks, it's evident time truly flies when you're having fun.

This weekend was a quiet one so I'm sharing all the things that happened in September including some tidbits from the weekend.

September Happenings

Celebrated: Both Lola and K's birthday in early September. Lola had a little cake party at home and we celebrated K's birthday in Austin, TX.

Attended: A beautiful Baby Shower and a Wedding

Read: The Outsider | Cocoa Beach | Dopesick | Say You're Sorry

Purchased: These gorgeous Kendra Scott pieces while in Austin.
Iridescent Drusy Drop Earrings & Iridescent Drusy Pendant Necklace

Traveled: To Austin for K's birthday (mentioned above) and Nashville for a work trip.

What I Wore: Lots of light summer clothing. The weather is still outrageously hot during the day in Florida (usually 90's but lucky if we get some 80's temps).

Weekend Tidbits

Watched: I caught up on Married at First Sight: Season 7 since a friend of mine is going to be starring in this season.

Ate: K cooked a nice steak dinner on Saturday night.

Fun: Puppy sitting my neighbor's Chihuahua and German Shepherd. One tiny and one huge dog.  I took care of Stella the Chihuahua and K handled Pax. Both are sweet dogs but they need to be separated without their parent's supervision. We made it work.

Loved: Receiving all the sweet smelling hand soaps in the mail from Bath & Body Works including several new scents. I should be covered for the rest of the year.

Decorated: I started putting up some Halloween decorations and lights outside and then some Fall/Autumn decor inside.

Tested: A new custom Shampoo and Condition duo from Formulate engineered specifically for my hair type based on a questionnaire I submitted. More details about the results coming soon.

Snuggled: With Lola all of Sunday in between doing all the Sunday things - laundry, food prep, fall decorating, and cleaning.
