My favorite posts to read all week long are weekly “favorite” posts. Having been MIA for a little bit, I have a backlog of some favorites to share with you all! This week, I’ll share a little bit of everything. Let’s get this party started!
When I drove to Tennessee in August, I knew I couldn’t make the solo trip depending on my short playlist of favorite singles. I downloaded Serial and fell in love with podcasts. Since then, I’ve added some other favorites including: Spawned, Note to Self, RadioLab, and Happier. Happier and Spawned are my favorite to listen to during my commute to and from work and they’re the perfect length.
Amazon Music! This is new to me and it’s amazing. We purchased Amazon Prime a couple of months ago and I had no idea that I could create playlists and listen to their entire library of music!! Gone are my days of buying songs on iTunes. Greatest thing ever.
Fall weather. Oh em gee. It’s my favorite time of year. September stayed SO hot in Wisconsin (uppers 80’s and 90!). This week we hit a MAJOR cool down and temps are where they should be in the upper 50’s and 60’s. It’s a dream. Colors are just starting to change, the sun has been shining, and the temperature has been perfect! Side note: While that isn’t my photo, Craig and I drove that road last week in Door County on our anniversary getaway. So pretty.
Instagram/Etsy shopping – I follow so many adorable shops on Instagram. Part of the reason that I took my October challenge is because of all the wonderful things I keep finding (and buying). Some of my most recent purchases include the adorable green Sophie hoodie from Evy’s Tree. Pricey, yes – but I buy them on sale. AND they wear and wash great and can be dressed up or dressed down. One of my favorite bloggers, Bonnie, recently opened up a shop called Hey June. I purchased a sapphire necklace to commemorate my wedding month. And finally, I recently bought Eddie a pair of those buffalo plaid jeans from Dudley Denim. I missed out twice before finally snagging a pair before sellout last weekend. He will be such a little stud wearing those this fall. Instagram: My new favorite way to shop.
These pipSquigz are amazing. Small enough to tuck into any bag and entertaining enough to keep our 10 month old happy for an extended period of time. They easily suction to high chairs and tables and Eddie loves to pull them off because of the noise they make (“pop”). They rattle, too. And he loves to suck on them and throw them on the ground (and promptly begin sucking on them again when I hand it back – gross). These were on a wishlist for Eddie way back when, and GiGi delivered. We love ’em.
