It’s the last Friday in August!
I am not calm. I am so excited!!!
I hope you’re excited too!
This has been a good week. It’s Friday, and I’m a little tired, but I feel like we are in our new schoolyear routine and movin’ right along. I wasn’t too busy (always a good thing) this week, and I’m looking forward to my weekend. I’m just happy that it’s the end of August and there is a lot of fall fun in my future.
Happy (almost fall) Friday to YOU!!!
I try to hit Trader Joe’s once a week, and this week, while I was there, I grabbed a few things I thought I should share (why does that sentence sound like Dr. Seuss wrote it?! Ha!)…
I don’t always find these in store, but when I do, I buy two boxes. This is a crazy good combination and perfect for an easy lunch!
I. Can’t. Say. Enough. About. This. Cheese. I am very scared that it’s seasonal because I LOVE IT SO MUCH!! If you love a good grainy mustard and a cheddar (especially if you love a mustard on your charcuterie board!), this cheese is for YOU!!! I was enjoying it as a snack earlier this week when Andrew got nervous that I was going to eat it all. He was all “save some for me too”…you guys, we might end up fighting over this cheese! It’s that good!!!
These little cookies made it home with me this week too! They’re small and perfect for an afternoon treat or dessert. The whole family approves!
You guysssssss…I hope these Buffalo Style Chicken Wraps aren’t seasonal too! I typically eat half a wrap with a salad for lunch, but this was so good that I ate the entire thing in one sitting with my salad. It’s the perfect creamy and spicy combo, and I would probably eat it every day if I could! Love it!!
Big things happened this week for the two little girls…
…they had their first cheer class!! Woohoo! This year, instead of dance, both girls wanted to take a cheer class. THEY WERE SO EXCITED!! I really can’t remember a time when both of these cuties were as excited to do something as they were this class. They’re working on all sorts of things to make them ready for middle school cheer tryouts (should they decide). After their 30 minute lesson, they were both exhausted, sweaty and happy. When I went to make dinner, this is what I found…
…Mades was too worn out to even get her backpack ready for the next day. Ha!
I love it when my kids find activities they really get excited about!
Speaking of excited…
…Andrew brought me my first #psl of the season this week! That officially declares it fall, right?!
Now, I don’t always get an actual pumpkin spice latte…my normal drink is a venti pike with one pump of pumpkin spice and a splash of cream. It’s my lighter version of the original (which I get non-fat, no whip). What is your go-to fall Starbucks drink? I’ll try something new!!
Just a reminder that I love this eye cream 🙂 . This is what I wear every morning, and I just had to buy a new jar because I was fresh out. I really do think that when I use this, I see a big difference in my undereye circles. I will never get enough sleep…so I always appreciate a little help from a jar. At night, I use this eye cream.
One more thing, I just ordered my second jar of…
…this amazing Glowstarter that I’ve shared with you. I love it so much! I wear this every single day over my daily moisturizer and under my foundation. I use it as a “primer”. It smells like an orange dreamsicle and gives me make hydration plus a bit of glow.
Of course, this was by far my favorite Fave from this week…
I’m still all sorts of sappy about it. Right now, the BOGO sale is still going on! You can grab this one or any of the other bracelets or earrings from Sheaffer’s new collection and buy one, get one.
Well, someone turn down the a/c, I need to start wearing these boots…
…STAT! I love my Lexie boots so much that I bought a new pair for this fall/winter. They come in so many different colors, but the laces had me with this pair 🙂 .
And wrap up this week with my End of Summer Supper menu!
Today, I have two summery cocktails, a couple of appetizers, salads, entrees and a dessert option to end your summer.
That’s it for this Friday! I hope you all have a wonderful weekend! I’ll see you on Monday!! xx
