Just some bullet points:
*Fall TV starts soon! What will you be watching??
*I don’t really enjoy giving my boys haircuts. However, it comes down to math. A very conservative estimate per hair cut would be $12 x 3 = $36 + $6 tip = $42 x 9 (times a year) = $378. Now, add in Matt’s haircuts (which I don’t mind – his is super easy), which I give him about every two weeks, and that’s another $375 easily (to keep it up as often as we do). So home haircutting = $658 in savings per year. That does it…I’m buying a new pair of shoes. (And, I will keep repeating to myself that it’s stuff like this that helps me be able to stay home.)
*The new pair of shoes is for a gala (squeal!) that I get to attend in November. I have a dress that I’m recycling from another event, but I need a kicky new pair of heels.
*Those heels will hopefully be procured on my Chicago trip with her and her (and our friend Sherri who doesn’t blog, but minus our friend Kelly, who’s having a baby in 8 weeks), now just 2 weeks away. Can.not. wait.
Moving on from that stream of consciousness.
*Tomorrow, we get to meet our new niece Claire Nicole, and see Calla as a big sister! So excited.
*I figured out a way, thanks to Martha Stewart, to hang our wreath on the new front door without doing any damage to it.
You’ll have to trust me that it’s awesome, because it’s dark and I’m not taking a picture right now. It’s daytime! Here are pictures:
*It’s almost time to plant bulbs, which means I’m going to be digging into the new landscaping a bit. Yikes.
*It’s already scarf-wearing time, which makes me happy times 10.
*Some Christmas things are in the etsy shop! Advent calendars and Christmas card displays. And not for Christmas, but adorable if I do say so myself? This hat. And the cutie models. In other etsy-type news: I’m doing two vendor fairs this November. Totally nervous already.
*I was the mystery reader today in Bennett’s class, and I wish I could have bottled the hug he gave me when he came in the room from recess and saw that the mystery reader was me. So sweet.
*Anyone else love the show “Chopped?” Matt and I are borderline obsessed. In fact, tonight, as I was putting dinner together, he asked, “Is this your food that’s been plated?” Totally not kidding.
