We wanted to make waffles for breakfast but then realized we were out of mix and somehow it wasn’t on the grocery list so I didn’t buy it. We made bacon and eggs instead.

I started my newest book: “My Notorious Life” by Kate Manning.

After lunch, I picked up our race numbers and shirts for the Turkey Trot on Thursday. I can’t wait to force include Alex in my family’s tradition.

A visit to Alex’s parents to pick up his sister for the afternoon and see the dogs.

Dinner was delicious! I had chorizo meatloaf and the portion was HUGE! I have at least one meal of leftovers from it.

Sunday started out with a little reading in bed. I wasn’t ready to get up just yet.

An asiago bagel with cream cheese for breakfast. A local bagel shop sends out coupons for we got 8 for the price of 6 and will freeze majority of them for the future.

Taking my time to drink my tea while relaxing for a bit (and watching Stranger Things)

img_5350

Making a list of the errands I have to run so I don’t forget anything.

img_5352

A trip to the library was much needed! I got 3 books that I”m excited to read.

img_5355

Folding laundry while listening to Up and Vanished. I’m a little behind on my podcasts so I’ve been playing catch up.

A ham sandwich with pretzels and hummus for lunch.

Homemade pumpkin bread makes the apartment smell so good! I will have a recipe up for this later this week πŸ™‚

img_5364

What getting ready for the morning looks like for us. A slight mess but it makes getting out the door so much easier.

img_5366

Reading by the fire before dinner. Are you sick of fire pictures yet?

img_5367

Leftover chili for dinner. If you haven’t tried putting chili over noodles, I highly suggest it! Alex says it makes the meal.

img_5369

Movie night with “When Harry Met Sally”. Neither Alex nor I had ever seen it.

His and her’s slices of pie for dessert during the movie.

Online shopping the new Magnolia collection at Target. I can’t decide what I want!

img_5228

While Alex took an exam, I watched some YouTube videos while folding laundry and cleaned then organized my dresser, which was much needed!

img_5229

Leftovers fromΒ Cafe Carriage HouseΒ for lunch. I seriously need another Chipotle chicken panini in my life.

img_5232

A midday trip to Target for a couple necessities. The Hearth and Hand line was just as cute in person as it was online. I managed to not buy anything but I’m sure I will soon.

img_5233

Exchanging Alex’s birthday gifts at the mall and outlets on the 60 degree day in November…Fall is nonexistent here in New Jersey this year.

img_5239

The perfect dinner for Sunday night – pasta and red wine.

img_5240

My favorite fall candle from Bath and Body Works is Mahogany Teakwood. The scent is amazing and I need to pick up a few more!

img_4983

More Stranger Things since I’m still on the first season.

Cake for dessert. This picture is from Saturday because the leftovers got a little squished in the container and didn’t look pretty anymore πŸ™‚

Sunday In Pictures Vol. 3 – Knoxville Edition

Happy Monday! How was your weekend? I didn’t mean to not post yesterday but Saturday was gross and rainy in Knoxville. We spent a lot of time lounging around the lake house watching college football and drinking way to much. It’s okay though because that’s what vacation is for right?? Have a great day πŸ™‚

Breakfast of champions is eggs and tea. Not our typical Sunday breakfast of pancakes or waffles.

Alex finished up some school work while I sat by the fire and watched “Gilmore Girls”.

Saying goodbye to the lake.


The restaurant we went to had a massive wall of tequila behind the bar.

For lunch, I had a quesadilla with chicken, black beans, roasted corn, cheese and jalapeΓ±os. It was so good!

A liquor tasting at Knox Whiskey Works, a local distillery. Alex and I each got a flight (4 tastings) and the guy gave us their ninth liquor for free.

Boomer’s parents had a nice spread of food when we arrived at their home.


A burger and pan roasted veggies for dinner.

Prerace breakfast of toast and peanut butter.

Perfect 10 Miler race complete! 1:36 finish time, which was in front of my goal πŸ™‚

img_4949

Post race soft pretzel = amazing. Give me all the carbs.

img_4971

After a shower, we headed to a fall festival. Obviously had to stop and get Hoagie Haven for lunch since we were in Princeton.

img_4972

Beer was a must! For some reason, our waiter kind of forgot about Alex and I (we waited like 30 minutes for two drinks). We asked the hostess to check on our order and she was awesome! She came back and said the drinks were on the house, which we didn’t ask for or expect. Love good customer service πŸ™‚

img_4973

We walked around Palmer Square in Princeton for the fall festival. The green vest was my anniversary present from Alex and I love it! If you’re in the market for a vest, this one is both stylish and will keep you warm.

img_4976

One more Christmas gift bought!


I jumped on the “Stranger Things” band wagon. I was hooked within the first 5 minutes.

img_4979

Reading more ofΒ “The Nightingale”.

img_4981

Alex’s and I’s lunches made for Monday.

img_4982

A burger, deviled egg, roasted potatoes and broccoli for dinner was heaven last night. I missed having roasted potatoes in my life last week.

img_4984

I sipped on some Sleeptytime tea with honey while watching another episode of “Stranger Things” before heading to bed.
