morning snuggles

Reading: nothing! and this is a problem, I need book suggestions and I need them fast! 
Watching: I am so happy that fall shows are back on! Modern Family and The Mindy Project are my go-to shows! I am also watching Gossip Girl on Netflix. I read all the books when I was in high school and am just now getting around to watching the show. I know, basic white girl. 
Planning: with the magnificent holidays come planning and scheduling! We will have lots of holiday parties to go to and need to work out the deets for those!
Doing: I just bought a membership to Pure Barre, which I've become slightly obsessed with, so here come the rock hard abs! 
Loving: I've said it once and I'll say it again. This weather! It is finally starting to feel like fall here in Alabama, the air is feeling crisp and the leaves are turning yellow. 

Have a great Halloween Weekend! 
We will be zombied out on the couch watching scary movies and eating candy! 


5 wishes

1. Ugg Adirondack Boot - I've had my eye on these for about a year now, they would obviously but so comfy! Just gotta take the plunge and make the investment
2. diptyque candle - I have never owned one of these, I've heard amazing things! Christmas wish for sure!
3. Oribe Dry Texturizing Spray - this is coming to my cabinet as soon as I run out of the other I am currently using. I have always loved using these products. 
4. Emily Ley's Simplified Planner - I will need this next year to keep dates and projects together, and this is THE planner of all planners!

perfect product

This tea! 
I first received this tea as a gift last year and have vowed to only drink it during the fall and winter months. It is so delicious, I didn't find it at my local Trader Joe's but I found it on amazon here.

This is what I drink in place of coffee on days when I just want to lounge around the house. The smell is unbelievable. I usually mix in a small amount sweetened condensed milk and it adds the perfect cream flavor. 



Reading: Currently finishing up Judy Blume's In the Unlikely Event. I've enjoyed reading it but I think the next book I want to read I want it to be a holiday book. 
Eating: Today I made these. Cauliflower tots! They are so so good, I keep them in a container in the fridge. They are great for snacking on! 
Doing: I have succumbed to the Pure Barre trend. I must admit I do love it though, I feel so good after a class and I hurt in places where I didn't even know I had muscles. 
Planning: Our one year anniversary trip is coming up and the Disney planning has begun! I cannot wait for our trip to Disney World! 
Loving: Although it gets pretty hot during the day, the mornings and nights here in Alabama are turning cooler and cooler each night! I am loving wearing my warm cozy pj's to bed. 

have a great weekend!


fall to-do list



I don't even know where to begin writing this post. This trip was so humbling. This trip made me realize that I need to step up my game in loving people, ALL of Gods people. It made me realize just how much excess I have! 
I am so blessed to be a part of this organization and am so excited to share photos. 

This is Camilla, she is having surgery here in the states. 

This precious thing is Luis, her brother, I wanted to bring him back with me.
