Hello weekend! How was your week? I made Pioneer Woman’s recipe for chili this week, it’s one of my very, very favorites.
I also bought a bag of granny smith apples, so I have a feeling an apple pie will be coming soon as well! My boys are having a sleepover in South Carolina at my folks house, so Emily, Justin, and I are home this weekend. I’m so grateful that they get to have some quality time with my parents! I’m considering taking Emily to get a pedicure with me. She’s 3. Will I regret this decision?!
Our nanny was out of town for a few days this week and we missed her! I was reminded about how much of a gift she is to our family, and how thankful I am for her. I wrote a post about finding childcare recently, you can click here to read it.
Remember this post from years back?! It caused such a stir that I ended up having to write a Part 2!
And here are a few things I mentioned on Instagram Stories recently that you may have missed:
Jordan at Douglas Carroll Salon
Black blouse – a perfect work-friendly blouse that hits in all the right places.
Cloudswift running shoes – I’ve taken these on a few runs and really like them!
Bauble Bar Ring
Amazon slippers – these slippers are so warm and I love that they don’t slide off my feet.
Wander Beauty Baggage Claim eye masks
Crewneck Neon Sweater from Amazon
Bumble and bumble Thickening Shampoo
Tommy John henley and joggers
Nude pumps – as close as possible to a dupe for my beloved J.Crew suede pumps.
Merly Jean Jacket from ABLE – such a great denim jacket in a lighter wash with just enough distressing.
