The extra long weekend was just what I needed to refresh my body and mind. I feel rested, organized and ready to get through the rest of this month.
Even though we’re nearly two weeks into it, I thought I would share a few things that I’ve been really into this month.
3 Things I am Loving Right Now
3. Essie Nail Polish
I have always been an OPI girl, but recently, I found a coupon for the Essie brand and decided to try it. Truthfully, I always thought the colors were kind of boring and never understood the price for what seemed like such a simple bottle of polish.
Well let me tell you, with the first swipe, I was hooked. This polish is like magic. It glides on beautifully and I honestly get that salon manicure look even when I do it myself. Usually, my manicures are pretty pathetic and chip within hours, but the Essie polish lasts for an entire week or more.
2. The Civil Wars
Oh my do I love this band. I honestly don’t think there is a single song I’ve heard by them that I don’t like. Lately, I’ve really been into this song in particular.
*Fun fact: This band got its name to fame when this song was featured in an episode of Grey’s Anatomy.
1. Pumpkin Soy Mistos
Ugh, I think I dove into the pumpkin craze way too early because once I start, I can’t stop. These little babies make my entire day but at the same time, make my wallet a little lighter.
Since today was Columbus Day, both Toly and I had the day off work.
This would explain why the lighting in my breakfast bowl is actually decent.
I was feeling yogurt this morning.
Even though we were happy to be off, it was still a somber morning as we had a funereal to attend of a dear family friend. As sad as it was, I was so proud of my dad for officiating the service. The woman who passed was like a second mom to him and he was grieving himself but still supported the family and honored her by delivering a beautiful message.
Afterwards, Toly asked if we could go out to lunch. I wasn’t expecting an impromptu lunch date, thus I didn’t come prepared with my camera but it was a lovely time and meal.
I had some errands to run later this afternoon and Toly had some things to take care of around the house. By the time we regrouped it was dinnertime.
With the warm weather coming to a close, we decided to take advantage of one more chance for grilling and outdoor dining.
I purchased a new brand of veggie burgers at the store yesterday. It was Wegmans brand and I’ve been eyeing them for months now. I finally decided to grab a box when I saw them on sale this weekend.
The burger was a combination of chic peas, sunflower seeds, tahini, and artichoke hearts. I prepared the toppings of hummus, mashed avocado, and a sun dried tomato, olive, feta relish. It was scrumptious!
I enjoyed my burger with a side of baked sweet potato fries. A perfect way to end our season of grilling.
Back to work tomorrow but it should be a quick week.
What is one thing you are loving this month?
