Reading…..Lilac Girls by Martha Hall Kelly. It’s another WWII historical fiction novel that follows 3 girls during the war. I have a feeling this is going to be a super deep novel. So I’m actually doing something I rarely do and that’s read two books at once. I’m reading one of my cheesy romance novels at the same time. That way I can balance out the deep stuff with some light and fluffy nonsense.
Watching….. This is Us. If you haven’t seen the pilot, then you need to crawl out from under your rock and watch it. Because it is amazing! I’m so glad that good TV is finally back on. My DVR is loaded and sadly I’m having to do most of watching on the weekends because my weekdays are so busy. But that’s ok!
Wishing….I was better at keeping a planner. I SO want to be the type of person that uses their planners day in and out. But if I’m 100% honest I completely forget to use it about 85% of the time. I usually just end up using my phone but I love planners and so I keep buying them and partly using them. I spelled barbecue sauce on my most recent one so I’m in the market for a new one. That I won’t use. It’s a problem.
Feeling….pretty darn good! Y’all we are officially into the fall season and are 2 days away from officially being in the “holiday season.” I finally decorated for fall and lite my very first fall scented candle this week. And it was glorious. I am so ready for the holidays it’s not even funny!
Thinking about….trying out two things. First, Stitch Fix. A few of my friends have tried and seem to really like it. But I’m worried that the clothes I’m sent will be too expensive because I really don’t spend that much money on the clothes I buy. The clothes that I’ve seen are super cute though. So I may try it for a month or two and see what I get and decide if it’s worth it. Second, one of those meal prep food things. You know like, Blue Apron or Hello Fresh. I love the idea of having everything I need for two or three meals sent to me with the recipes and all. Seems so convenient. So I think I’m gonna try that too!
Looking forward to….THE HOLIDAYS! Lots of fun stuff is coming up in the “ember” months and I am so excited. I have a trip to Kansas, a wedding, Thanksgiving, a Disney trip in December, home for the holidays, and obviously Christmas itself!
Wanting….cooler weather. It may be officially fall but the state of Texas has yet to receive any fall like weather. Not surprising at all since it is Texas but still. If I’m smelling fall inside I want to be feeling fall outside.
Loving….The Preppy Printshop on Etsy. I plan on buying 4 prints from her shop and now I’m just trying to decide which sizes to get. These two are my favorites!
Needing….to wrap my head around the fact that I am now licensed to drive a bus! Yep, you read that right. I can now drive a school bus. I passed my Commercial Drivers License test yesterday. I literally never thought I would ever be driving a school bus. Like ever. But I be driving said bus with 36 girls packed on it on Thursday! And earn a whopping 20 extra bucks doing it!
Alrighty, that’s all I’ve got. Hope you have a happy hump day! Two days to the weekend! We can do it! 🙂
