Guys it’s almost Fall! I wore a hoodie for the first time last week and the joy it brought me is almost indescribable. September is a crazy busy time, but it’s my absolute favourite month.
Check out what I’ve been up to!
I’ve been absolutely horrible at keeping up with shows this past month. I’m working my way through 13 Reasons Why and still keeping up with my Real Housewives, but not much else.
I saw Hustlers on Friday night and although I’ve read mixed reviews, I thought it was amazing. Jennifer Lopez was perfect and the cameos by Lizzo and Cardi B made me so happy.
Lana Del Rey’s new album is very slow, but perfect for my crispy Fall feels. It’s been on repeat for the last two weeks.
I also tried White Castle for the first time this month, and I have to say that it was better than I expected. The chicken sliders were good!
I’ve been on a mission to find dollar store fall and Halloween decorations that I can modify to look more high end. I love white pumpkins, so this DIY is totally up my alley. I’ll be posting my finds on Instagram stories.
Chris and I are also actively trying to find the perfect new sofa for our upper living area. We’re looking for a mini sectional with a sofa bed, but can’t seem to find the right fit. I love Ikea, but the sofa beds there don’t have the greatest reviews. This one from JYSK is my favourite so far.
For my birthday this year I took a trip to Ann Arbor, Michigan and did a little exploring. I visited the cutest little sushi restaurant, checked out this casino in Battle Creek, did some shopping, and enjoyed the hotel hot tub. I would so much rather trips like these than physical gifts.
Otherwise, for the last two weeks my entire being has been consumed by hockey. With both Holly and CJ in their first year, we really got thrown in to being hockey parents. They both completed a hockey school last week, and now we’re on to regular practices. Wish us luck!
As of Tuesday, I’m in the last year of my 20’s. This year feels oddly significant to me and I feel like I need to make it count.
As much as I want to be one of those women who embraces aging, I’m 100% not ready to turn 30 next year. I’m actually terrified. It’s not that I haven’t accomplished what I set out to by now, it’s just the fear that I could be doing more. Anyone else feel the same?
The rest of the year in a very general sense. With our schedules changing so much as of September 1st, I’m trying to embrace the chaos and make it all work.
I’m trying to budget out Christmas purchases and come up with a cool birthday experience for CJ in November, but I’ve got nothing yet.
What are you up to this month?
