The most delicious smelling pumpkin candle & celebrating Oktoberfest with all the food
Four posts in one week - who am I?! It feels good to be back in the blogging swing of things. We had a good week and I can't believe it's the end of September already. It's really feeling like fall here as it's been in the lower 60's and rainy all week. I even turned the heat on! I say it's for the baby... but really I'm the baby when it comes to being cold. The forecast looks like more of the same for the weekend and we actually don't have any plans, so we'll probably be sticking close to home!
ONE | We have a corner of our living room that is in desperate need of help. It's just sitting there empty and I'm so sick of it driving me crazy, so I finally got to work on fixing that this week! I decided to go with a console table (thinking about this one) and a gallery wall. But since gallery walls give me a bit - no, a lot - of anxiety with all of the measuring and holes in the wall, I decided to take the easy way out and use shelves to layer pictures on. I bought these from Amazon and am crossing my fingers they're good quality! I'm excited to get to work on this project and hopefully will have a completed wall to share on here soon!
TWO | Haddie is breaking out of the swaddle on the regular now and a couple of times this week, I found her sleeping on her side which freaked me out (her arms were out though thankfully). I think it's time to transition her to the next stage 'swaddles' - I've heard great things about the Merlin's Magic Sleepsuit, Summer Infant SwaddleMe Wiggle Blanket and the Zipadee-Zip... anyone have any recommendations for one in particular?!
THREE | I ordered my first pair of Ugg boots since college! Last spring, I came across the Amie Slim version in a Nordstrom store and surprisingly loved them. They are much more flattering on, while still being super warm and comfy like the Ugg brand is known for. They'll look so cute with both jeans and leggings and you can't beat how easy they are to just throw on and go. Nordstrom actually has quite a few different styles of Uggs on sale if you're in the market.
FOUR | Another order placed this week was for the Pioneer Woman's Holiday Cookbook and I cannot wait for it to get here! You can't go wrong with her recipes - there are over 140 of them in the book - and I love that it includes entire meal plans for each holiday. I'm thinking it will get lots of use during the upcoming holiday season. I already have plans to make the popcorn balls for Halloween, yummm.
FIVE | This is for my fellow shorties: if you love the Zella leggings, you have to get a pair of the midi version (here). I always have to fold the bottoms of my leggings up, but these are the perfect length for me at 5'3" and hit right at my ankle! They are the same great quality as the regular Zella leggings - just a more appropriate length for us to wear with athletic shoes or flats.
