Comfy Jackets

I’m typing this from LAX, about to board my flight back to Raleigh. I arrived here Wednesday night to attend a dinner with Shani Darden on Thursday. And just like that, I’m back at the airport. It was the fastest cross-country trip I’ve ever done, but it was absolutely worth it!

The dinner was outstanding, I’ll share more about it soon, and I’m thrilled I’ll get home in time to see my family tonight!

How was your week? Can you even believe that we only have one more week in September? I mean, it’s basically 2023 already.

My kids are eagerly anticipating Halloween, and they have even picked out their costumes already! They always get a kick out of Halloween decor so I’m thinking about getting some big spiders or something for the front of the house again!

I hope you had a great week! I’m a little jet-lagged and tired from this quick trip, but I cannot wait to share more with you about it. If you’re interested, I shared a video on my Instagram about the entire process of finding a dress for the dinner!

And here are a few things I mentioned on Instagram Stories recently that you may have missed:

J. Crew 9-Inch Rise Jeans – if you aren’t a high-rise girl, these are great!

Everlane Sweater Tank

Costco Kirkland brand Shampoo and Conditioner

OPI color California Raspberry – kind of the perfect fall pink!

Heritage Cabernet

The Butcher’s Market

Good Lines boob tape

Half Baked Harvest Burrata Pizza – I’ve made this so many times and always love it!

Naptime Kitchen ABLE Bag

Do you have a Madewell discount? I haven’t seen one in awhile. Thanks!

Love the photo! It reminds me of the movie, “Halloween” and the fall season.
