Life Lately

Aside from painting vanities and kitchen cabinets, life has totally gotten back into the school year groove around here.  A is in preschool two days a week with gymnastics and soccer as her "extracurricular" activities and K is my carpool sidekick and we started our mommy and me gymnastics class.  We keep pretty busy between all the activities and general #momlife nonsense of target and wegmans runs.

Our weekends this month had been filled with fantasy drafts, family birthdays, and neighborhood parties.  We finally had time this weekend to have a family date at the apple orchard followed by a date night out with friends.

And with the literal fruits of our labor we made these apple cinnamon muffins, so so good.  Definitely test out that recipe if you have some apples you need to use!  We still have a ton left so I'll probably do an apple pie, some apple cinnamon bread to give away, and maybe some baked apples for a treat.



After the apples, I finally had time to get dolled up for date night!  We met up with my best girl and her boyfriend who we hadn't gone out with since May.  We had to cancel the last plans we had in July, because the ladies of the house all came down with hand, foot, and mouth... and it was awful. So finally we found the time to make it happen.



Speaking of time (har har), JORD was kind enough to send me a handcrafted wooden watch.  It's the Cora style in zebrawood with a turquoise face.  I few years back I had a tortoise watch and while the color of this is a similar style, it's far and away more unique.  The wood is incredibly smooth and just looking at individual links I get put in awe at the detail.  I love the is a perfect watch to wear day to day, but that it can hang on date night too.  The gold detailing and swarovski crystal markers give it a smidge of flash.  The watch is self winding, which means no dead battery!   The men's watches are just as cool, especially if your guy isn't into "jewelry" like mine.

And now to schedule next month's venture to the pumpkin patch ;)
