Wake me up when September comes

Mmmmm....Fall is almost hereee. Bring it Ludwig! (SATC ref anyone?) Chatting with a friend at work today I recalled how I enjoy Baskin Robbins Pumpkin ice cream in the fall. I don't do the Starbucks coffee but I do do the ice cream flavor. It is extraordinary and it is the essence of Floridian Fall, in my opinion. There is something about ice cream or yogurt in our version of a cool yet humid Fall night. I don't know how much longer I can hold out before I make a pit stop one evening. Hmm, reroute of home travel in mind...To be determined...

Another thing I am just about giddy over: Target's Halloween section. It might just be the funnest spot in all the land. I lovelovelove their decor, the candy section, the fun random knick knacks. Oh I can't wait!! And because of our impatience and ridiculousness as a society, that gold will be lining the aisles in about 3-4 more weeks most likely. I usually make myself wait til my birthday, which is late September, before I allow myself to scour this section and pick out my first batch of Funfetti Halloween cupcake wrappers-with coinciding orange frosting natch-and get to celebrating. Hocus Pocus up first for anyone else?

I enjoy all the movies of fall that come on and the replays of Halloween themed shows like Home Improvement, Fraiser, Roseanne, and of course many others. Halloween is the very best holiday ever, like ever ever, and I'm ready for creative costumes and fun get togethers to commence!

By the way of TV, fall also presents my fave shows and new seasons like Criminal Minds, Awkward, before this year Dexter(it premiered in June for its last season in case you're not familiar), AmishMafiaWhat? I only seek quality for my viewing pleasure, friends.

Some nice new layering sweaters sound nice too. Ones in deep emerald, rich gray, a classic red. I love these for both lounging and professional use just the same. So cozy.

Not so much into football, but love the festivities that go with it. I usually make it to a UCF tailgate at least a couple times in the season and it's always just as fun each time. I can't hang like I used to so hence the low occurrence of happening. Still an activity everyone should participate in at least once.

I like football type food. We tend to grill more in fall than summer too. I love the house open and a game on upstairs with Hunty, filling our house with noise, while savory scents float on inside through said open windows Mmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmm..........Sorry, I drifted away to revery. Where were we?

Obviously, I am far too excited far too early on. Ehh. I'm good with it, you? It's going to be tons o' fun and I can't wait. Come on August, keep on keepin on!

Self care reset

We all hear the buzzwords self care more than ever these days. Every where you turn, a lifestyle blogger, health guru, or magazine article shares insight on ways to treat yo self to some basic T.

While I love modern discussions as much as the next girl, I’m aware sometimes it just doesn’t fit and you have to reset what isn’t working. For example, some weeks I am just done by the tine Friday hits. Hell, a rough Wednesday or Thursday has crept in there, too, requiring a pause and reflection for how best to naturally beat a funk or a “feeling of less than stellar”.

Here my top self care reset ideas for your consideration:

Drink water: Warm it with some lemon, try some green tea for an antioxidant boost, or just plain old room temperature is a sure way to get the boost to feeling a bit better.

Face it: Fewer things feel as good as a really great face mask. I love charcoal in particular lately and always feel refreshed and restored and ready to ‘face’ another day. See what I did t…

Roni ate a crayon

The middle part. Perhaps like real food, is this the juiciest part? I don’t know why or what got into her but she not usually isn’t a newer or eater of non edible items. My girl is sophisticated; enjoys edamame with a little sea salt, broiled chicken, and sweet potato dog cookies, she’s not some gremlin with an anything goes pallet.

The number one thing that has changed with Roni since Pepper went to sleep would be her appetite. She eats, yes, but she’s veryyyyy particular. She won’t eat just to eat anymore. Like dogs do, she was always quick to scarf down food or treats because she worried Pepper would beat her to it. She be little but she is fierce when it comes to her grub.

                            Roni, girl!  You don't need to eat crayons! I'll meal prep for you, too!

Anyhow, we don’t love her new decision making abilities and would love it if she did not do such a mongrel thing to do. My little angel baby, love colorfully in a better way.

Simple blessings

I’m lying in bed, next to a snoring husband and my baby girl dogter sprawled out cozy as can be, while the rain falls down upon our roof. Gone are the days of spending a Saturday night downtown at a club, throwing beers back in a honky think, or galavanting around to anywhere with the lights on.

And I’m not mad about it. Not even a little bit. There is tilt no place I’d rather be than with hunter, Roni and our comfy sweet little home happily netflixing and writing this here post. It’s a good feeling indeed.

I count my blessings extra on nights like this and say a few additional prayers for love and comfort to continue on. I truly don’t ask for more than health, happiness, and love. Anything else is gravy.

To simple blessings for all.
