It’s been a minute – hasn’t it!?
I hope you are all doing well! I am doing pretty good! Nothing crazy has happened lately. I’ve been obsessed with Friday Night Lights, tried a pasta dish that I’m OBSESSED with, and have really been feeling fall! (Like really feeling it!)
Unfortunately, my anxiety levels have been pretty high lately – despite me finishing school. I’m hoping things settle soon – while all the changes in my life are great, I think they add anxiety and stress to my plate. I’m giving it to God, seeking help, and learning to relax. It’ll be a slow process, but I think I’ll be feeling better in no time! 🙂
On that note, I saw that anxiety and depression are higher than average lately, so if you’re struggling, I encourage you to take action…you deserve to feel your best always. You only have one life, and it’s best lived healthily – mentally, emotionally, and physically!
Anyways! Friday Night Lights is so good! How have I never seen this before!? I literally am glued to the T.V. and feel little guilt (#winning), which has been really nice! I am obsessed with Matt and Julie and love the coach/dad dynamic with it, haha! Only Murderers in The Building is another show that Dawson and I enjoy, and you can find it on Hulu!
The pasta that I made was so good, and it was inspired by Granite City’s brunch! It was a box of elbow pasta, eight peppers (yellow and red), spinach, a jar of diced tomatoes and habaneros (I would do two jars next time), half a jalapeno, half an onion, two smoked sausage links, garlic powder, and salt and pepper. It’s pretty much all to taste, and I’d strongly recommend it – some people include cheese, too!
Then, fall decor! Woo!!
My mom and I went to Mishawaka for my birthday. There was a ton to do there like Home Goods, TJ Maxx, Kirkland’s, Michaels, Bed Bath & Beyond, and tons of restaurants like Flat Top Grill! We listened to Crime Junkie on the way, which rounded the day out as the best!
My work bestie gave me a gift card to Home Goods, and I used Birthday money to pay for my spree. So, while I may have brought home $300 of stuff, I spent $0 of my money.
So, like, winning!?!?!?!?
While I don’t have pictures of the Home Good finds that I have, here is a link to all my Halloween haul: www.instagram.com/p/CTszDQyFoHI/
But, here are all the deets on the products that you can find at the big stores!
Bed Bath & Beyond
At BBBY, I snagged a plaid pumpkin pillow (ADORBS) and the cutest ghost pillow! I had to cut the tassels off, as Auggie didn’t understand that they weren’t made for tug-of-war.
I had never been to Michaels, but I was a little disappointed in their selection. However, I found Dawson’s favorite pillow! I was shocked because I thought it would be his least fav!
Well, friends, that’s it! I hope you enjoyed this short lil update, and I’ll see you soon! ❤
