What I'm Reading This Week #38

'Sup y'all?  It's the last weekend of summer!!  I will nod my head in mourning for those of you who are sad but don't look too close because I will have a big smile on my face.


I am more than ready for Fall, as you know, and hope the temps get to and stay in the 70's sooner than later.  I'm ready for horror movie marathons with Freddy, Jason and Ghostface, curling up with my favorite tea and fuzzy socks and flipping the remote on the candles for some hygge time when the killers are done with their business.

Let's get to what we were shoveling in the pie hole this week.

Monday was what I made for the Mr the first time I ever cooked for pepper steak.

Tuesday was glazed salmon with sweet potato gnocchi and broccoli.  ("She's choppin' brocc-uh-lay.  She chop...huh!")

Workout was MBFA Total Body EMOM (strength).

Wednesday was Turkey Tacos.

Workout was walk around the park which we had almost all to ourselves after rain came through!

Thursday was General Tso's Shrimp.

Workout was walk around Grandma's cemetery.

Now let's walk into...

30 Chic Mantel Decor Ideas to Celebrate the Fall Season  (So many fun ideas!  I laugh when I think of what my 16 year old self in my black lacquer/sleek lines days would think of my style now.)

I've got a few Christmas presents that arrived so I'll contemplate wrapping this weekend.   The Mr and I need to do something...not sure what.  Whether it's our first movie of the Fall season to an in home spa night or a board game that won't leave me wanting to frisbee it in frustration.

Anything on your end this weekend?

  3. Busy week, next week even more so. Appt today and grocery shopping, meeting tomorrow and usual house stuff, and then work. It's in the high 80s and low 90s here this weekend so a/c will be on unfortunately.
