How was your final weekend of August? Can you believe it will be September in just a few days? Where did this year go?!?!?
Travis starts teaching at San Diego State again today, so summer is officially over for him and we get back to our crazy school year schedule. We live closer to school now, so we’re hoping to see him more during the day since he’ll be able to come home during breaks and we can visit him easily.
It dipped down into the low 70s during the day last week and I celebrated by having my first hot coffee drink of the season. Fall is coming and I cannot wait!
I took a trip to IKEA last week to get some things for the house and I had no idea how much fun IKEA was for kids. Normally I stick Cecilia in a cart, skip the showroom and go straight to the marketplace. Last week, I ditched the cart and walked through the showroom because that’s where the item we needed was located. At the end of the showroom is the kids area with all of the toys they sell, kid beds and kid-size tables and chairs. She had a blast playing with everything and we were there for no less than 30 minutes while she had the time of her life. Who knew?
I’m ridiculously excited for this week’s episodes of Real Housewives of Orange County and New York. The current seasons have been highly entertaining so far.
Did you see Britney do carpool karaoke with James Corden? Being a gal who was in high school and college at the height of Britney’s career, I’m HUGE fan of hers. Is she the best singer? No. But, she is fun to watch and has catchy songs. I was a bit sad watching this because she totally lip synced or just let him sing a majority of the time. It was fun to watch, but I would have loved to hear more of her actually singing.
This list brought back soooooo many memories of high school and college! I totally had that Coach key/wallet thing in pink/white, spent way too much money at Abercrombie, decorated my Freshman dorm with Abercrombie bags, had glitter lotion and glitter eyeshadow and how the heck could I forget about juicy tubes?!?!? I had so many of them!
If you follow me on Instagram and saw my Instagram stories, you saw that Cecilia and I made these chewy oatmeal cookies. We added chocolate chunks to them and they were some of the best oatmeal cookies I’ve ever had! I highly recommend making them.
