Currently: It’s a beautiful Labor Day here in the DC area! I started off the day with an OrangeTheory 3G workout and am now relaxing with the windows open while Magnolia plays. It’s going to be a hot week, but I’m looking forward to the cooler days sprinkled in throughout the month of September. Today I’m going to prepare for the week ahead. It’s an exciting week at work and it’ll be nice to have a shorter work week. Today I’m going to go grocery shopping, fold a gazillion loads of laundry, and enjoy this nice weather. I’m also thinking a nap is in our family’s future. I hope everyone enjoys this Labor Day!
Current Drink: After 13 months of no coffee, I enjoyed my first cup on Saturday. It was delicious and the perfect way to kick off the long weekend.
Current Book: I have 4 books I’d like to read by Thanksgiving. I’m actually going to share them later this week, but currently I’m reading Big Little Lies.
Current Pamper: I got a gel manicure (Seasonal Beige) and a pedicure this weekend. I am loving my manicure. I’d really love to get manicures more often this fall/winter. I could probably do without the pedicure, but it’s really fun having your nails done.
Current Show: We’re so excited college football is back! I watched Stranger Things last weekend (the whole series) and am really looking forward to fall TV starting in a few weeks. Goodness I love this time of year! College football, NFL, September baseball, the return of Thursday night TV, and all the fall activities. Such a fun time!
Current Obsession: This weekend I went to Homegoods in search of some new fall decorations. I am OBSESSED with all of their white and gold/copper fall decorations and loved all the goodies I picked up. I bought these two acorn jars, two glass and copper lid jars, and 4 of these Thankful coffee mugs. I just can’t get over how cute this shelf is. Now I just need to decorate the rest of my house. I’m planning to shift to fall these next few weeks, decorate a little for Halloween the weekend of October 1, and then shift back to fall/thanksgiving after Halloween. I’m also starting to think of Christmas decorations. I’d like to decorate the weekend after Thanksgiving if time allows. This is our first holiday season in our new house and I’m really excited!
Current OMG: Magnolia turns two in 9 days and I just can’t believe it. As her birthday is on a Wednesday, we’ll most likely celebrate with family this coming weekend. I’m actually pretty sad as I have a really long work day scheduled for the 14th. I know I’ll work many birthdays, but I just wish I didn’t have a late night in the office scheduled. My toughest days as a working mom are the days I only get to see Magnolia for an hour or two. Having one of those days be her birthday is just tough.
Current Purchase(s): This weekend my sister and I did quite a bit of shopping. I wanted some new jeans for the fall and found a really cute pair at Torrid. I also bought a new cardigan at Lane Bryant, a beautiful dress on clearance at Target, and some goodies at Bath and Body Works. This Halloween candle smells amazing!!
Current Song: I really love This Girl by Kungs vs Cookin on 3 Burners! It’s a great commute home jam and really great for interval runs.
Currently Looking Forward To: SEEING ADELE ON FRIDAY NIGHT!! I can’t wait to see her in concert! It’s going to be a fun night!
