On Monday night, I saw my blog/IRL friend Chelsea and she blog shamed me! “You haven’t blogged since mid-September!” And it’s true…I’ve been busy thinking of topics to write about without actually blogging! And now it’s somehow November?? Anyway I’m back, and catching up…
I don’t know if you noticed, but this past September and October were warm. I love summer, so I didn’t mind too much, but it was weird. Especially once all the fall decorations came out. And of course, the temperatures had to go from shorts to sweaters and leggings within the span of a week. Now it’s at least feeling seasonal, but my body was not ready. So don’t be surprised if my next outfit post features bare legs…because that’s what is going to happen. Regardless of the warmth, I crossed a few things off my fall to-do list. My friend Camille and I made s’mores and enjoyed some cocktails at The Deck. I also went apple picking (in shorts) and made apple crisp and applesauce.
Navy Yard Saturdays!
Almost every October, I spend two Saturdays at the Philadelphia Navy Yard. The first tradition is Mutt Strut, part fundraiser/walk/fall festival that benefit the Philadelphia Animal Welfare Society. I took Arya this year, and she had a blast. We also raised over $250, a record for us! Thank you again to everyone who contributed! The second tradition is an annual cider fest with my college friends. This year was our fourth year! We enjoy the sunshine, sample a lot of delicious (and less delicious) hard ciders, and wrap up the day with some cheesesteaks. It’s close to the perfect fall day.
I got LASIK!
Okay, this is the most exciting/life-changing thing from the past few weeks (sorry, everyone else). I got laser eye surgery! It came together rather quickly, and while I had been hoping to get it done eventually, I wasn’t expecting that to be this year. I plan to write more about the whole experience, but being able to wake up and see without having to reach for glasses is wild. Let me know if you have any questions about it and I’ll do my best to answer them!)
I also thought now would be a good time to share what some of my friends are blogging about!
Camille shared her favorite cruelty-free beauty products.
Chelsea wrote about adjusting to a 9-5 after her retail career.
Jess blogged about how she really paid off her credit card debt.
Unrelated to credit card debt…Melissa picked out some fun fall sweaters to add to your closet!
Chrystina wrote about her baking competition party series (attending as a judge was a great idea on my part).
