September Favorite Things

September 27, 2018

 

It's time to share my favorite things of the month!

 

Books I am Reading

 "It's All Under Control" by Jennifer Dukes Lee

 

Jennifer's new book could not have come at a better time for me. I've never been one to consider myself a control freak, but as life gets more complicated, I find myself trying to control my environment. This book offers freedom from that tyranny. As Jennifer says, "True rest isn't about activity, but the state of your soul."

 

I am loving this book so much, I am giving away a copy to one of my email subscribers!! So make sure you sign up to receive my monthly emails-I promise I will not spam you. I send one email a month with some extra encouragement and a list of my posts for the month.

 

Drinking

 Starbucks' Salted Caramel Mocha

 

While everyone else is freaking out over pumpkin spice lattes, I'll be in the corner sipping my fall favorite-the Salted Caramel Mocha. If it contines to be 85 degress here, I will make that a Salted Caramel Mocha Frappuchino.

 

Watching

 Parks and Recreation

 

Ok, now before you think I am way behind the times, I have watched Parks and Rec before, but it was always sporadic because I don't want much TV. My husband and I recently decided to watch all of it on Netflix and I LOVE THIS SHOW.

 

Listening to

 The "Mean Girls" Broadway musical cast recording

 

I am a little late in getting into this cast recording because I am of the generation who LOVES this movie. Though the musical was also written by Tina Fey (the book), I was skeptical. Then I saw Barrett Wilbert Weed (who plays Janice and yes, that is her real name) perform "I'd Rather Be Me' on Jimmy Fallon and had to listen to the whole soundtrack immediately.

 

I promise you, it is as delightfully hilarious as the movie, very insightful, and the music is great.

 

Creating

 My Fall Halloween hutch

 

I was not finished refurbishing my hutch last Fall, so I am loving getting to decorate it this year. Fall is my favorite season to decorate for, besides Christmas. I'll share more on Instagram soon.
