Hi there! It's been a while so I thought I'd check in and let you know what we've been up to lately.
watching: My favorite show of the summer was Stranger Things on Netflix — it was soo good, and a little creepy. The show is set in the 80’s, so the character's clothing and hair is pretty amusing, and I love the soundtrack. I also finished the first and second seasons of Outlander - I read the first book and the show hasn't disappointed. The actors that play Jamie and Claire are perfect. I also loved Murtagh and Fergus!
enjoying: Spending time with Violet! She will be 18-months old next week and I know I've been saying it for a while now, but this stage is so much fun! I love seeing her grow and do new things. And it's interesting to see her develop an interest in certain things over others (she still loves shoes, and now she always carries around her baby doll). She has been talking non-stop -- she discovered Elmo a few weeks ago, so when she sees him, she points, and jumps and yells ELLLmo!!
making: Violet’s halloween costume! My mom always made our Halloween costumes when I was little, so I thought I'd get crafty and try a no-sew costume. So far it looks good!
reading: You’ll Grow Out Of It by Jessi Klein was my favorite book of the summer! I found myself laughing a lot and it’s a really quick read. The Curious Charms of Arthur Pepper was a sweet story about an old man discovering more about his late wife's life before they met. H always teases me about being grandma and loving "old people love stories" so this one was perfect for me. And I just started reading The Good Girl -- it's reminds me of Gone Girl -- and it's totally creepy, but I can't put it down.
wanting: I really need some new shampoo — my sister-in-law recommended Big Shampoo from Lush, so I’m going to excited to try it!
looking: Tan booties for Fall, I have a great pair of black booties from Sole Society that are still going strong after a couple of years so I'd like to get another pair from there.
Vi is loving: SHOES! The girl is obsessed, unless she's sleeping or in the bath she always has shoes on. I recently bought Vi her first pair of Mini Melissa mary jane shoes after I saw a few little girls at the library wearing them— the jelly shoes smell like strawberries! They are sold at Nordstrom, Zappos, and Amazon.
loving: Piñatagrams! The mini piñatas come filled with candy and they are delivered without a box. I really love getting mail so this was a fun treat! Vi was a BIG fan too, she keeps the empty piñatas with her stuffed animals. You can enter to one below!a Rafflecopter giveaway
