Playing catch up!! Our September was packed! First, our family went on a vacation. If you missed the recap, you can read all about it by clicking here. Then, my parents came to visit for 2 weeks the following weekend after we got back. It’s been a whirlwind!
This month I’ve been resting and trying to get caught up on house work, (along with catching up on work, work). Now that it’s fall, I’m really wanting to do a deep clean of the house. I’m thinking of dedicating a month to deep cleaning and trying to get it done little bits at a time. I’ll keep you posted if that happens!.
Anyway, here’s what else we’ve been up to…
Jurrasic World: Fallen Kingdom
I’m not typically a huge fan of Sci-Fi movies, but I’ve always been able to make an exception for the Jurassic Park movies. I enjoyed this one. It was your typical Jurassic movie, but the story line was a little different than I was expecting. I have a feeling it’s going to lead up to more of what I had in mind in the next movie (assuming there will be a next movie). I missed some parts of the movie here and there since Gryffin was having a hard time with going to bed, but my husband bought it so I’ll be able to re-watch it soon!
Friday family night movies have included:
- The Incredibles
- The Incredibles 2
- Wreck-it Ralph
Little House in the Big Woods by Laura Ingalls Wilder
While the last month and a half has been fun, it’s also felt a bit chaotic, so I decided to go with something light hearted and comforting, which ended up being a children’s book. I finished this book, so I’m on to the next one in the series!
Farmer Boy (Little House Series) by Laura Ingalls Wilder
My goodness, these books talk about all sorts of yummy food. It’s hard reading before bed because it makes me so hungry lol.
White Chicken Chili from the Salty Side Dish
I can’t remember if this recipe has made it on the blog before or not, but either way, this has become my most favorite fall recipe so far. The only thing I do different on this recipe is leave out the heavy cream and I add a can of mild green chilies. It’s the best!
Calmed by Nature YouTube Channel
While I like to listen to music with lyrics, I often find it to be distracting when I’m trying to focus, so I was happy to discover this Youtube channel. There are so many different scenes and sounds to choose from! Just staring at the pictures is calming, then you add the sounds and I can feel my stress levels evening out.
My current favorite scene is this cozy ship cabin. The dim lights, tea, and book is extremely inviting. This is the epitome of relaxation to me.
My second favorite has been the Cozy Fall Coffee Shop.
You’ll have to let me know if you have any favorite channels or apps like this!
I hope you all are having a wonderful fall so far!
Much love to you all,
