What I'm eating this week: I made the first batch of chili for the season and think I finally found a recipe that I love. I'm kind of picky and prefer for it to be more on the soupy side with not very much meat. I used this recipe as a base and adjusted it quite a bit and it was a huge success! Special thanks to my mom for giving me the idea to add fritos!
What I'm reminiscing about: Our trip to New York last week.
What I'm dreading: The rainy weather that's supposed to stick around all week. We really hadn't had much rain, so I shouldn't complain, but timing wise it could put a damper on a few things.
What I'm working on: Creating a new workout routine, finishing up some CEUs, and searching for some easy & healthy dinner ideas to put in a regular rotation. I'm so terrible at eating healthy, send me all and any recipes you like!
What I'm excited about: The change in seasons-- I touched on it a little bit in my fall goals post, but there's something refreshing about fall and I really do enjoy apple cider, football all day on Sunday,
What I'm watching: I started watching Hart of Dixie when I was sick a few weeks ago and I was totally hooked. I love Rachel Bilson and totally wish Bluebell were a real place so I could move there and be BFFs with Zoe Hart. It's the perfect fun, cheesy, drama filled show... until season 3 where it took a turn for the worst with way too many ultra annoying new characters. I'm still watching in hopes that it will turn around.
What I'm listening to: The All the Books podcast-- I love hearing about upcoming releases of new books. What podcasts are your favorite?
What I'm wearing: I'm being slightly dramatic here, but it seems like it went from a million degrees to freezing so I've been wearing my sweats and oversized flannel shirts pretty consistently. It's been rainy all week, so my rainboots have got quite a bit of use as well (I definitely don't need another pair of Hunters, but I really like the new version with an adjustable calf! ps. most comfortable boot ever!
What I'm doing this weekend: Depending on how the weather turns out, we're going to head to the apple orchard because it's likely fall will slip away if we don't make it a priority early on in the season. I'm not sure if I'll get around to painting/carving a pumpkin this year, but how cute is this donut pumpkin?
What I'm looking forward to next month: My husband is running his first marathon, which happens to be his second race ever (his first being a 5k), so that's pretty high on the list of exciting things for October.
What else is new: The Beyond Words Bookclub is reading Homegoing next month and I have just a few people left in front of me on the library hold list so I'm hoping I'll get to read it in time to linkup (October 28th).
