Five on Friday

planner // similar pumpkin candle
Happy Friday! We made it! We have a low key weekend ahead of ourselves and I am so looking forward to it! It's the last weekend we have without any set plans until mid-November, so I plan on taking full advantage of it and getting in lots of relaxation, as well as maybe checking a couple things off my fall bucket list. But first it's time to link up for Five on Friday!

Hello October

It's been quite awhile since I shared a monthly goals post, but I've found they really do help set the tone for the month and keep me accountable so here goes!

Birthday Happenings

Happy Wednesday! This has been one of those weeks where I'm already wondering where Friday is, so keeping it short and sweet today and linking up to Jenn to share a few happenings from my birthday last weekend!

Five on Friday

Hooray for Friday! This week was super busy (but with nothing exciting, just the usual every day activities) yet didn't feel very fast so I am so ready for the weekend!

Fall Bucket List

Yay for Fall, my favorite season! Every year I write a fall bucket list, and while it always contains the same basic activities (plus or minus a few), I don't care it makes me so excited for the season!

Here's what's on my list for this year:

+ Weekend getaway to Vermont - this is booked for the middle of October and I can't wait!

+ Apple Picking

+ Go to a corn maze - this has literally been on every fall bucket list I've ever written and yet I've still never gone. This is the year!

+ Visit the Cider Mill - what's a trip to Vermont without stopping at Cold Hollow?

+ Bake at least one delicious fall treat, I'm thinking these - they look so delicious!

+ Make apple cider sangria

+ Kayak the Charles - this didn't happen this summer, but there's still time!

+ Decorate pumpkins - still loving these white pumpkins & calligraphy

+ Go on a hike and take in the beautiful fall foliage

Bring it on, fall! 
Linking up with Jenn & Jessi today!


Happy Monday! This weekend was one of the best kinds where we managed to relax, have fun, and check a few things off the to-do list. Linking up with Biana to share!

Friday night my friend had a 90s theme house warming party! She went all out with decorations, cootie catchers & scrunchies, capri suns, pizza rolls, and a spread of junk food I was never allowed to eat as a child. Everyone dressed up and we had such a fun time!

Saturday I sorted through and organized all my clothes, switched out my summer and fall clothes, and organized the hall closet. I rewarded my hard work by doing a little shopping at Marshalls & Target - I picked up a couple new pieces of fall decor, but I did have to force myself to resist allll the fall things they had on display!

Saturday night we tried out a new to use bar/restaurant, Hopewell, for dinner. I got the artichoke salad and while it was pretty good, it was on the pricier side for what you get so we probably won't be back to eat. It was a fun spot with pool & shuffleboard though, so I'd definitely go back to hang out and get a drink.

And Sunday was the usual - sleeping in & relaxing in the morning, a grocery run, and then football for the afternoon. I'm in a fantasy league this year which has made football way more interesting, but unfortunately my team did terrible this week. Aside from that it was a great weekend, and as always went by way too fast. Hope you all have a great Monday!

Friday Favorites

Hello and happy Friday! This week was so busy and I'm thrilled to see the weekend! On the agenda is a friend's housewarming party, a date night, and doing the seasonal clothes switch - time to break out all the sweaters and booties. But first it's time to link up for Friday Favorites!

+It's officially fall which means it's officially pumpkin time! I scooped up a couple white ones at Whole Foods the other night and have been spending way too much time browsing Pinterest for some cute decorating ideas.
+The return of fall TV - check out this article of what to watch and what to skip. I have my eye on This Is Us, The Good Place, and Designated Survivor! Any reviews?

+When I was in DC this weekend I wore my friend's shirt out one night (oh how I miss living with girls in college and having access to multiple closets!) and loved it so much I ordered one for myself from Nordstrom the next morning. Bonus - it's on sale!

+And a few fall looks I've been loving...
