So that blogging rut doesn't seem to be going away anytime soon.... I do have a few ramblings that might be worth sharing though.
This Madewell Melodymaker Dress is currently at the tip-top of my wish list. I absolutely love the color, and am currently using up all of my willpower to not purchase it. Isn't it perfect?
My hair appointment is Saturday, and although I'm tempted to go both shorter and darker, I have a strong feeling that I'm going to chicken out and only do one of the two. I feel like my hair could use a serious break from the damaging highlights, so I'm thinking that going darker with just a normal trim might win out... I'll let you know!
I'm currently loving these adorable pumpkins my kiddos created for their Trick-or-Treat book reports. This at home project was a huge hit with their families, and the end result was great. Telling your kids that they get to decorate a pumpkin resembling the book character after they completed their book report was a huge bonus for them! (FYI for you teachers: I purchased Hope King's project on TPT for ideas and then tweaked it to fit the needs of my students. I highly recommend this project.)
CAhusband's current project at work has him working nights this week. I hate that we've only briefly seen each other in passing this week, but most of all I hate that our dogs will not sleep through the night without him here. They are definitely being great guard dogs, and I suppose it's cute that they're being a little overprotective since he's gone, but ..... IT.IS.GETTING.OLD!
I hate that I've been reading the same book since school started, and am nowhere near finishing it. At this point I'll be lucky to finish it by the end of Christmas break! I hate that school and new TV have derailed my frequent reading.
It's less than a week until Halloween and I never added to our holiday decor or painted the pumpkins I wanted to.... maybe next year I'll do a little better, time definitely got away from me this year.
I have recorded every single episode of The Chew since it premiered because I want that goat cheese and rosemary mac and cheese recipe that Carla mentioned in the teasers over the summer. They haven't showed it yet, and I'm starting to think the recipe just doesn't really exist!
All of this Jessica Simpson baby bump news really makes me long for the Newlyweds days. Someone on Twitter (I can't remember who) said they secretly hope she's carrying Nick Lachey's baby, and I couldn't agree more. Even though they split forever ago, I still miss them together. Also, she's clearly preggo, so I don't know why the announcement hasn't come out yet. She's not fooling anyone!
We'll be home in Indiana for Thanksgiving 4 weeks from today, and Christmas is now less than 2 months away. Let the countdowns begin!
Again, I apologize for the blogging rut, but thanks so much for sticking with me!
