Hey, hey! How was your weekend?
On Saturday, Cecilia and I went to Birch Aquarium to celebrate their 25th Anniversary. It was a great time with a fun photo booth, music, crafts for the kids and a scavenger hunt. Yesterday, we laid low and did our weekly grocery shopping and ran errands.
Speaking of grocery shopping – PUMPKIN SEASON HAS OFFICIALLY BEGUN AT TRADER JOE’S!!!! Not only do they have all kinds of shapes and sizes of pumpkins to purchase, a lot of their pumpkin food items have hit the shelves. I stocked up on some of my favorites like Pumpkin O’s, pumpkin spice granola and pumpkin pancake mix. I also picked up a few new things that have become my new favorites. I think a round three of my fave TJs pumpkin items is in the works already!
Cecilia has officially completed her first week of preschool! Drop off and pick up the first day were fairly seamless, but the second day was slightly rougher. She didn’t want us to leave (she knew it was coming) and the second we walked into her classroom to pick her up, she started crying. Most every other kid in the class was crying that day once they saw their parents, so I’m guessing it’s just a part of the transition. Good news is, though, that even though she cried when we got there, she still didn’t want to leave. We’ll see how this week goes!
I think the whole pre-school transition is messing with our sweet girl because she did NOT nap last week!!!! EEK! She was so overtired by the end of the day that she would pretty much meltdown. It was early bedtime for everyone each day last week, so I’m hoping for actual naps this week.
What were your favorite dresses at The Emmys? I was in love with Allison Janney’s and Nicole Kidman’s. I was also in love with Sterling K. Brown’s acceptance speech. He is so incredibly talented and I enjoy watching him so much on This is Us.
On one final note, this is my 100th Monday Musings! How crazy is that?!?!? Thank you for reading these somewhat random thoughts of mine each week!
