1. This past week, Max called me by his teacher’s name a few times. It was so cute! I remember calling my teacher “mom” in kindergarten and getting so embarrassed. But it’s adorable. 2.

2. Sourdough pancakes!! Totally make these this week. My sourdough starter is still going strong.

3. Have you started holiday shopping yet? I actually have, which is super early for me. My gift guides will be coming in a few weeks! I think this is my tenth year for them!

4. So some exciting news – we are in the process of building of house. Do you want a home series on this? IG stories, blogs? What is one dream thing you wish you could have in your house?

5. Barefoot in quarantine. I love.

6. TV things!! Okay, who watched The West Wing reboot? I watched it and was thrilled, obviously, to see the cast back together. I was disappointed that it was a remake of a previous episode though? I thought we were getting a flash forward!

7. UMMM also, did you see that Dexter is coming back?! Insanity. Pretty sure I documented my Dexter binge watching on Tuesday Things a decade ago.

8. 10 things to do when you’re feeling unproductive.

9. I finished Mariah Carey’s memoir and it was so incredible that I had to tell you about it before my month end reading post. OMG. I might deem it the best book I read all YEAR. Yes. Make sure you listen to it, because she narrates it.

10. How much leopard print it too much leopard print… mine and Emilia’s wardrobes are out of control.

1. Super exciting news! I’ll be with Elin Hilderbrand on her virtual book tour on Nov 12. You can register here – it’s going to be so super fun.

2. Oh my word – cookie dough stuffed brownies.

3. Does anyone else thing the leaves look outrageously gorgeous this year?! I’m ready to do a fall leaf project with my kids like I did back in first grade.

4. When your task list is overwhelmingly long. I LOVE this. I get overwhelmed really easily, especially when it comes to to-do lists.

5. TV things!! Haven’t watched much of anything this week (a little DWTS here and there – is anyone else watching?) but can I just say that the previews for the show Emergency Call are basically my worst nightmare? Why would anyone want to watch that! I cannot.

6. There’s never been a story like Britney Spears. Can’t stop reading this.

7. Speaking of the above, I’m listening to Mariah Carey’s new memoir on audible and it’s incredible because she narrates it. And she sings in basically every chapter.

8. Thinking of staying at home all winter has me wanting to take up skiing. Even though it terrifies me! Just give me the cozy cabin with twinkle lights and snow.

9. I’m also definitely already thinking about christmas decor. Might bite the bullet Nov 1.

10. I love reading quarantine routines and this one has lots of good tips.

1. Have you seen the meme: I’m physically in October but mentally still processing March?! OMG that is spot on. 2. Remember last week when I talked about the cricket in my car? Well. Now our entire neighborhood has tons of crane flies, which basically look like enormous mosquitos and they dive bomb us the […]

2. Remember last week when I talked about the cricket in my car? Well. Now our entire neighborhood has tons of crane flies, which basically look like enormous mosquitos and they dive bomb us the minute we step outside. As you can imagine, I’m not being dramatic about it at all.

3. Chocolate matcha sticky buns! I need these.

4. TV things!! Did anyone else watch Emily in Paris? I watched the entire thing and was… sort of underwhelmed. It felt really young/fake to me, but at the same time I am so desperate for normal TV and movies to come back! I wanted to love it, and I did like it, but it just didn’t… freak out over it. Thoughts?

5. What are you reading? SO EXCITED because Elin’s new book is out today!! Eeeep!

6. Thoughts on planning 2021 vacations? Would you do it?

7. How to keep a simple home with kids. Love love love this.

8. Is it too early to put up the christmas tree? Asking for a friend.

3. One of my worst nightmares ever happened last week… there was a verrrry large bug in my car. A cricket. I mean, we should probably just get rid of the car now.

4. Since I can’t even handle one small bug, my so-called dream of living on a lot of land is one big joke. Or said Eddie says.

5. TV things! I finished Friday Night Lights. I am now in a major depression that it is over. I don’t know how I feel about the ending – ugh! I’m definitely in a show hangover and not sure what to binge next.

6. Speaking of TV, did you watch the Father of the Bride 3 special? I was so, so excited for it. I thought it was cute but ultimately it wasn’t exactly what I was hoping for. Still absolutely love this article by Nancy Meyers. (NYT)

7. Now I’ve decided that time is just going to fast. I mean how is it almost October.

8. How to turn jealousy into productivity!

9. There’s been a redesign in the works here on the site for a long time now – tell me, what is your favorite part of a recipe index? What would you love in a new site?

2. The habit dip. Wow. Reading this was life changing for me.

3. This past weekend was the most perfect fall weather – it was actually a little cold. I refuse to get excited about it though as I’m sure the temps will go back up to 85.

4. Also, over the weekend I realized that we have zero family photos together since the pandemic began. I think I’m challenging myself to take a family pic of the four of us once a week for the rest of the year!

5. Really want these cinnamon roll biscuits.

6. Have you noticed that there is a pumpkin shortage? It’s making me crazy – I did get a few cans on amazon, but my stores are usually stocked year round. Did we replace clorox hoarding with pumpkin hoarding?! I have a pumpkin recipe coming tomorrow and rest assured that you can also use butternut squash for it! P.S. there are a few cans online at target too… run!

7. TV Things!! Well, I’m still just in a vicious spiral of Friday Night Lights. I’m at the end of season 2. Is it crazy to say I’m even more of a Matt Saracen fan than Tim Riggins?!

8. This year doesn’t work without meal planning. I could not agree more. Even though we are home so much more, more meal planning has saved me.

9. I actually went to Target in person (have been doing delivery since March) and I have to say, maybe the pandemic finally stopped them from trying to convince everyone to open a redcard?! Not one word was said about it.

10. Starting The Roommate tonight. What are you reading?!

1. Can you spot the bee on the sunflower?! 2. Oh my gosh. Chocolate chip cookie dough stuffed pound cake. 3. Tell me about indoor herbs. My herbs were so incredible this year (still are) and I’m not ready to let them go. But how do you handle them indoors? And is it worth it? […]

3. Tell me about indoor herbs. My herbs were so incredible this year (still are) and I’m not ready to let them go. But how do you handle them indoors? And is it worth it? Because I use a TON, so it may not even be worthwhile?

4. I got my first strawless lid from starbucks the other day and it really wasn’t that bad!

5. Speaking of, our starbucks drive thru has become INSANE since the pandemic hit – it’s not unusual to have to wait 35 minutes for a drink. The worst part is that I don’t even mind, because I have no where else to go… so… I’m the nutjob who will wait in the line.

6. How to be more present in the moment. Love.

7. TV things! All I can say is that I am so deep into Friday Night Lights. This might be the best binge I’ve decided on all year! Also, have you watched The Home Edit on Netflix yet?

8. With football back on, I feel very validated in making a big game day cheeseboard. But it would only be us eating it.

9. Also, I’m very tempted to put up the Christmas tree. Haha wish I was joking.

10. I am so tempted to get a lap desk. Do you have one?!

1. Today is Max’s first day of school! I can’t believe it. Even though I feel like I’ve been really intentional with my time since having kids, I’ve been having multiple “but where’d the time go?!” moments over the last two weeks. 2. Clear things out. Yes yes yes. 3. Do you have a before […]

2. Clear things out. Yes yes yes.

3. Do you have a before and after school routine? I’m all ears.

4. My current past time is searching online for seasonal decor that I do not need to buy.

5. Salted dark chocolate cookie dough bites need to happen in my house.

6. TV things!! In the midst of my West Wing rewatch, I also started watching Friday Night Lights after accidentally on purpose finding a marathon on this weekend. Also, who else feels like they can’t miss DWTS now because of Carol Baskin?!

7. How to spend less time on social media. I mean, I want to… but I don’t.

8. I was talking to the Starbucks drive through person and Emilia was like WHY ARE YOU TALKING TO SOMEONE? This is 2020. Where we don’t talk to strangers!

9. One that same note I realized why I’m just so ready for fall now! I think with all the unpredictability, I just keep wanting to move forward.

10. How to find time to read as a parent! SO many of you ask me this all the time. While I do most of my reading at night (I have a love/hate relationship with amazing fiction that makes me pull an all-nighter), I’ve also utilized the school drop off line, etc. I love the idea of a family reading party!

3. Living for apple season right now.

4. How incredible are these babka style scones?!

5. Five daily goals to stay sane. I really like these. And five seems so manageable.

6. TV Things!! Well… there’s not much new TV on so along with rewatching The West Wing, I rewatched some True Blood episodes then promptly had a heart attack that it was on over ten years ago. Wowza. What are you binging right now?

7. The uncertainty of what you should be working on right now. I LOVE this. It’s actually from February, practically pre-pandemic (almost) but is so so pertinent to right now. I’ve been feeling super overwhelmed and this helps a lot.

8. This week is the last summer fridays post for the year! Speaking of, fall recipes are coming in hot. Man are they GOOD!

9. Who else is decorating for fall this weekend?! Do you “decorate” for seasons or holidays? I never got 100% into it until I had kids, and now I’m an unofficial crazy person. Wahoo.

1. This marbelous cookie looks absolutely unreal. 2. Out of everything we’re missing this year, theater is one thing I am missing the most. And I’ve read so many articles saying it’s the hardest event to bring back, so I just almost feel hopeless. My mom and I have season tickets to a broadway series […]

2. Out of everything we’re missing this year, theater is one thing I am missing the most. And I’ve read so many articles saying it’s the hardest event to bring back, so I just almost feel hopeless. My mom and I have season tickets to a broadway series here and we both just miss it so much!

3. Showing up even when you’re not feeling it. Love this.

4. Okay I’ve definitely fallen over the autumn cliff. I pinned tons of my favorite fall recipes this morning and I think it’s all downhill from here…

5. TV things. That episode of Yellowstone – OMG!! I can’t stop thinking about it. And while I am not exactly worried, I am curious and don’t want to wait a year. Can’t even handle how good that show is.

6. Just read somewhere that most millennials look at the period at the end of a sentence on texts as a bad thing. Relatable!

7. I love people’s daily routines. Here’s some tips to stay productive, happy and healthy during the week.

8. My sourdough starter is still going strong! Still haven’t made any more bread with it, but I do use it for other things. Secretly, I’m just excited to have a strong, stable starter to bake some bread in the fall. Side note: Eddie calls it my science project. Ha.

1. Last week I did the worst thing ever. I washed the sheets… and forgot about them. Forgot about them in the way where you’re about to go up to bed, walk into your room, exhausted and then… remember. And they are STILL WET. There is nothing worse! 2. This island cake is absolutely mind […]

2. This island cake is absolutely mind blowing. Incredible!

3. Okay I’ve fully gone off the deep end with burning fall candles. It’s just such a nostalgic scent. I don’t want summer to end at all, but it gives me a little piece of normalcy. Umm also would you be interested in a favorite fall candle post? Ha.

4. How to avoid the sunday scaries. Guys, I had the sunday scaries before they were every called the sunday scaries. Literally my entire life! My mom would even try to talk me through it in elementary school. Even now when we aren’t going anywhere, I still get them. It’s wacky! But anyway – #1 on that list has been KEY for me.

5. TV things! WHAT the heck Yellowstone. I can’t believe a certain someone came back – I didn’t think that was going to end well. I’m also SO interested in what they are going to do to hang on to the land? Also, can someone tell me if our favorite shows will be back on this fall? Like a million little things?

6. Now that it’s been a few weeks, how are we feeling about instagram reels?

7. I had a great reading weekend after my reading lull – I blew through two books, one of them being Luster. OMG it was so good – I could not put it down. I started it late Saturday night and woke up to finish it Sunday morning. What are you reading right now?

8. Saw last night that this may be the end of fancy corporate attire and that more people than ever are wearing leggings for work (at home). So glad I started this trend in 2010!
