Back to work

Monday, October 01, 2012

I had a lovely weekend and as always, it went by far too quickly. Dinner at La Scarola and drinks at Public House with a few of my CrossFit girls, sleepover at Gina's, my first real cup of coffee (made by G), CrossFit (obviously), lunch at Hub 51 (also with G), Oktoberfest with the girls, drinks at FatPour in Wicker Park, smoothies at Peeled (Yes–with G. We just don't see each other enough), shopped the big J. Crew sale, and finally a trip to Whole Foods, a little work, and Dexter.

A few updates/things from around the web.
Dexter, Homeland, Revenge, and Once Upon a Time have returned. So far I've only watched Dexter (this season is going to be amazing) and I have no idea how I'll keep up with any of my shows this fall. I never sit down and watch TV anymore.

Loving these skin care tips.

Lulu & Georgia launched today and I've found quite a few things I'd love for my apartment.

Gina shared paleo apple cinnamon cookies and the paleo pumpkin chili recipe that I made last week.

I have this cooking in my crock pot right now and am dying to make these blueberry muffins thanks to my new favorite blog–PaleOMG.

A few of my favorites from J. Crew

For all you mac users out there, if you haven't upgraded to Mountain Lion, I highly recommend that you go for it. The new Notes and Reminders apps are amazing. I feel so organized.

It's October and fall is in full swing. Leaves are falling, the air is crisp, and I am loving every moment.

  1. Had such a fun weekend and I'm so proud of you drinking coffee. :)Also, Tim noticed my new chicken scarf right plan backfired.

  2. I am anxious to see JCrew's new website launch this month!!

    I too am hooked on Revenge, but still on Season One. I feel like fall brought some great TV shows (Gossip Girl, Revenge, The Office, Modern Family)... Yikes! I don't know where I'm going to get the time to watch them all.


  3. Glad to hear you seem to be cooking up a lot of goodies lately. Very proud! :)

  4. i made the pumpkin chili on saturday and it was amazing! plus it made my apartment smell great!

    what types of drinks do you stick to when you go out? i only ask because you make such healthy decisions elsewhere and i feel like it's nearly impossible to avoid alcohol as a whole. is it mostly wine?

    have a great week!

  5. This post is making me hungry! I may have to make that pumpkin chili this week (even if it is 100 degrees in so Cal!).


  6. This is a terrific capture, lovely.

  7. It seems like you are sinking right into the fabulous Fall trends... wasn;t Dexter amazing! Can't wait til next week's episode!

    1. YES! So good. I was expecting the end of ep one to be the season finale! I can't wait to see where they go this season!
