I love joining up with Anne and Jenna for their monthly Currently link up! Swing over to see what other bloggers are obsessing over lately. I’ve got a few randoms! (And if you miss the ol’ videos, did you see my video of summer favs that are on heavy rotation for the fall?)
Eating | Apples! I go apple crazy this time of year. I eat apples all year long, but my taste buds are seasonal too, apparently, and prefer certain foods at certain times of the year. My favorite type is Honeycrisp! And, now that the weather has officially turned cooler, I can get away with having soup every week and using my oven and not worry about it heating up the whole house!
Exploring | I’m trying real hard to visit all the local city parks. Now that the weather is a little cooler, it’s a more tolerable activity than when I added it as a (failed) goal on my Summer To Do List. I know there are some gems out there that we need to explore, and this is the perfect time for that! We are also planning on hitting up our local state park, just up the road, and getting plenty of hiking in once everything dries out a little. And picking up every. single. leaf on the path. (life with a toddler)
Wearing | Plaids & stripes are my every day! Remember that IG pic where I had 3 blue plaid shirts in my J Crew Factory cart? I don’t mess around.
I also picked up this pair of booties from Sole Society recently and if it would just stop raining, I could wear them outdoors. Since the weather has been unfriendly to suede recently, I decided to start breaking in the shoes indoors. They are a really great eggplant color, they are really comfortable and nice quality. It was my first Sole Society purchase but it won’t be my last.
Admiring | People who have really pretty Instagram shots. I need to step up my game. I really loved this DIY Photography Backdrop tutorial from An Uncomplicated Life. This is on my to do list. A must do. Like, soon. And I’m stealing tips in this article. Plus, that article features copious amounts of Portlandia gifs. Win.
Collecting | I’m collecting many toddler birthday supplies for Elizabeth’s 2 Year birthday party this weekend! Isn’t that crazy? The last little details are coming together, but I’ve got a crazy pile of party favors, streamers and balloons that need attending to before Sunday.
