What I’m reminiscing about…
This time in 2015 we were in Seattle with my in-laws celebrating my husband’s 30th birthday. Whale watching in Ana Cortes is still one of my most favorite life experiences.
What I’m wearing…
I didn’t take as many outfit pictures this month, but here is a bit of what I’ve been wearing.
What we’ve been up to…
September was full of a trip to Pittsburgh for a weekend with my Aunt Michelle and Grandma, celebrating William‘s birthday, working a Saturday library shift, enjoying time in our state parks, and appreciating September in Western New York.
What I am working on…
I’ve been decorating the house for autumn, and figuring out what a low-fiber diet looks like while also being dairy and gluten minimal. These dietary changes are NOT easy.
What I’m listening to…
The Lumineers new album has been played a lot lately, as well as the new Blink-182, Taylor Swift and Brittany Howard albums.
I’ve been listening to my favorite podcasts The Popcast with Knox & Jamie, What Should I Read Next?, Royally Obsessed, and With Whit. William and I have also been listening to Binge Mode‘s Harry Potter series.
What I’m watching…
I laughed my way through the season two premiere of Bless This Mess. I’ve been LOVING The Great British Bake Off on Netflix. William and I watch The Righteous Gemstones weekly. We’ve been enjoying football at both the collegiate and NFL level.
What I’m reading…
I just started American Royals!
What am I doing this weekend?
Friday night we’re going to the women’s rugby game. Saturday we’re planning a morning in the state park before watching the Alabama v. Ole Miss game. Sunday we’ll hopefully spend time outside in a state park again before hopefully picking up our final seasonal front porch decorations.
What am I looking forward to next month?
October will be quite busy! My parents are coming for a quick weekend visit at the beginning of the month. We have two open houses for potential students. We have a fall festival to attend, and my friends will be stopping by for a weekend on their way through our town after their bike tour of the Adirondacks. I have a Saturday library shift. My mother-in-law is coming to visit for two weeks. We’ll be celebrating our anniversary. Halloween is always a big deal in our neighborhood. Of course there will be a lot of football and hopefully as much time outside enjoying prime leaf season as well.
What were your September highlights?
