What a past few weeks, am I right? I don’t know how it’s going in your neck of the woods, but it’s been going ninety to nothing for my family. My daughter is getting married to a wonderful man in a little over a month and, oh my goodness, the amount of planning and executing that needs to be done is nearly consuming.
When I have a few minutes between work and being a wholly underpaid event planner the list below has some of the things that have made the days a tad more enjoyable. You may notice I didn’t include alcohol on this list, but that doesn’t mean it hasn’t helped me…. Jk, but am I?
My instant pot. My mother-in-law got me one last Christmas and for a few months I was too afraid to use it, but wow, it’s incredible! It’s so much easier to use when you don’t have time to really think of it and you just throw whatever in there and push some buttons and before long, it’s done. I can’t find the one I have, but I would assume they all do the same thing?
I’ve been listening to a new cozy mystery series by Vivien Chien called, The Noodle Shop Mystery Series . I’m on book three on Audible and I’ve enjoyed it so far. The characters are well-written and realistic which are two important qualities in a book for me. This is one series I hope keeps going for quite some time.
This TV room Chris Loves Julia did this week is SO cozy! If this room was mine I would spend the winter binge watching TV under that gorgeous throw blanket! A look at that color on the walls! The magic of paint never ceases to amaze me. And I’m seriously considering buying their Charly couch from Interior Define. Her design style feels so homey and perfect for fall/winter.
If you like big books of design, then you’ll probably love this book. It’s one of those books I keep finding something new to admire each time I flip through. It’s called, A Place to Call Home by Gil Shafer III. Of course, Rita Konig was the interior designer on one of the houses inside. So, you know it’s good.
Fall is finally here and I’m more than ready. Has it started to cool down in your area yet?
