We had a good week - it went by super fast (yay), and all of my pumpkin soaps and candles have made their appearances around the house (double yay). Definitely looking forward to the weekend though, we'll be heading to Detroit for a wedding! Let's get right into the randomness...
ONE | Cooking & Baking
I was on a roll in the kitchen this week - I made risotto and apple cobbler for the first time and they both turned out so, so, so good. The risotto recipe came from an awesome book I'm reading called Bread & Wine. I'm only about halfway through so I'll share a full review when I'm finished, but spoiler alert: I love it.
TWO | Fall Dresses from Nordstrom
Since we have two more weddings this fall, I was searching online for dresses this week because we all know we can't wear repeats in the same year (girl code). I tend to stick with Nordstrom thanks to their free, speedy shipping and the fact that I had a Nordstrom note to spend didn't hurt!
Anyway, there are SO MANY cute options for not only the wedding festivities, but also every day wear. These all would look adorable with anything from gladiator sandals to chunky heels to booties. And then throw on a floppy hat or a poncho and you're good to go! I want them all!
... is my faveeee fall nail polish. It's the perfect dark, navy color. I actually found mine at TJ Maxx last year, so keep your eye out for Essie polishes there! They're only like $4.
FIVE | 14 Years Later
It's just insane to me that September 11, 2001 was 14 years ago already. I still remember sitting in 7th grade math class, watching the news. I didn't know what the big deal was - I thought the first plane crash was just a terrible accident - but after seeing the second plane hit, made me really worried and scared. Our school made us turn off the TV's after that, but I remember going home and watching the news coverage all night with my parents. Such a tragic, horrible day and I'm definitely saying a prayer for everyone that was involved, lost loved ones and for our country.
We also lost my grandma two years later on September 11th, 2003 so I always think about her today. She was such a special lady - probably my favorite person when I was little :) - and I so wish we had had more time together.
But on a happier note.. I hope you all have a wonderful weekend. See you back here on Monday!
