39/52 2014

Another week has gone by and all of the sudden it's no longer September?! I wish I had something exciting to share, but I don't. Here's a look at my week.

Wednesday 24 September // day two hundred sixty-seven :: I went for a drive on County C and found this old barn.

Thursday 25 September // day two hundred sixty-eight :: les petits poissons rouges

Friday 26 September // day two hundred sixty-nine :: this week's library check-outs

Saturday 27 September // day two hundred seventy :: watching the premiere of the 25th season of the Amazing Race! can't say I was saddened by the first elimination... I want the Wisconsin (#SweetScientists) to win, but I also like #MotherDaughter and #CollegeSweethearts.

{I'm also watching season 17}

Sunday 28 September // day two hundred seventy-one :: clothes for tomorrow. varying shades of purple.

Monday 29 September // day two hundred seventy-two :: Luna had an oil change and got her brake pads replaced. usually I just get "Young" on the tag, so this made me smile. (it's my initials)

Tuesday 30 September // day two hundred seventy-three :: currently reading Big Little Lies. I love Liane Moriarty's books!

Does anyone know where to by fun, inexpensive socks? I usually get them from Target (the Xhiliration ones), but it seems like they don't have a very good selection anymore and mine are starting to get pretty worn out. I like to wear argyle or animal print ones and I try to match them to the rest of my outfit for my tumbling classes. ModCloth has some really fun ones, but they're like $10-12 a pair! Any suggestions?

38/52 2014

finally settling into the school year routine of work and teaching at the Y. it was another busy weekend because of a fall festival in Sturgeon Bay, and on Monday I drove down to Oshkosh for some shopping. the sky was so perfectly beautiful during the day and then later as I left the Y and the sun was setting. I wish I had pictures because the colors were just so vibrant.

Wednesday 17 September // day two hundred sixty :: my shoes tend to end up on the floor between jobs.

Thursday 18 September // day two hundred sixty-one :: breaking into a new NatureBox! {check out what's inside here}

Friday 19 September // day two hundred sixty-two :: coloring time. (: {these printables are from Tried and True}

Saturday 20 September // day two hundred sixty-three :: a few years ago, as I was working on the laundry at work, I updated my facebook status to "laundry is a never ending cycle." I didn't even mean for it to be a pun, but it really does never end...

Sunday 21 September // day two hundred sixty-four :: I finally updated to iOS 8, but only because I had some apps that wanted to be updated. I don't really use anything from the update.

Monday 22 September // day two hundred sixty-five :: I drove down to Oshkosh to do some shopping. I really wanted to get some new shirts and cardigans. the only thing that I bought that resembled clothing is this scarf from World Market {also in orange and purple}. and I found the little trinket tray at Francesca's, which I had never been in before. it's really annoying that I want to buy clothes but everything I find is at least one of the following: not something I like, too expensive, or something I like but couldn't really pull off.

Tuesday 23 September // day two hundred sixty-six :: these are a few of my favorite things (you know you just sang that too)

NatureBox :: September 2014

I was a little confused that my NatureBox was early this month, but I am not complaining! This is one of my favorite times of the month.

Cranberry Macaroon Granola :: Well, I was planning on having this granola in my yogurt with my apple (new favorite kind - Zestar), but the chunks of granola were much larger than I was expecting. The granola is really good and crunchy though. It tastes like a granola cookie!

Cranberry Almond Bites :: Last month I tried the blueberry ones, so this month I picked out cranberry. I like the blueberry ones better because these seem to have a pretty bland flavor, but they're not bad.

Strawberry Crispy Chews :: Okay, these sound really weird. They're strawberry fruit chews (like natural fruit snacks) but with crispy rice in them. They're actually really good and the texture is pretty interesting.

Apple Cinnamon Crave :: I really like trail mix, so this was a must. There are two kinds of roasted peanuts (honey roasted and regular), almonds, white chocolate chips, and cinnamon apple chunks. The honey roasted peanuts are the best I've ever had. They look a little strange though. And the apples? They taste just like apple pie!

BBQ Kettle Kernels :: I like NatureBox's toasted corn, and I like BBQ, so these are good. They are a little bit spicier than I would like, but still manageable.

37/52 2014

I got out a couple times this week and took more than just one picture a day. I've been feeling like I'm stuck in a rut, so to speak, so that was really nice.

Here's some color from the past week.

Wednesday 10 September // day two hundred fifty-three :: tugboat on Lake Michigan in Kewaunee on a foggy afternoon.

Thursday 11 September // day two hundred fifty-four :: fall accessories.

Friday 12 September // day two hundred fifty-five :: scheduling.

Saturday 13 September // day two hundred fifty-six :: big clouds.

Sunday 14 September // day two hundred fifty-seven :: lunch, a smoothie with spinach, fruit, and yogurt and a pizza.

Monday 15 September // day two hundred fifty-eight :: why does Blogger always have to make things more saturated? anyway, I took this down by the water in the canal. the sky was so pretty this day!

Tuesday 16 September // day two hundred fifty-nine :: books for Wednesday. I love Oliver Jeffers' work. {The Incredible Book Eating Boy // The Day the Crayons Quit - also reading Red Leaf, Yellow Leaf}
