Where I'm at Wednesday: End of Summer

August, where did you go?

I announced some big news on Monday about staying home another year with my babies. Having that privilege will never not be an honor.

I had the pleasure of guesting at Courtney's blog, Sweet Turtle Soup.

I have read 3 books this past month and I have surpassed my Goodreads goal!  Next year I'll have to up the number, apparently.  The only thing is, I don't want to feel consumed by reaching a goal; enjoy the book for readings' sake and not to check off a box. Does that make sense?  Tuesdays with Morrie by Mitch Albom, Imperfect Birds by Anne Lamott and The Matchmaker by Elin Hildebrand.  Reeeallly late on reading Tuesdays with Morrie.  And this was my first Hildebrand novel!  Loved it!  But the character's names in this story were atrocious (in my opinion.)

I have been wearing transitional pieces and am loving the cooler weather!  Raise your hand if you're ready for boots, scarves and PSL right about now!

Eating all the soup; my house got the back-to-school bug (which is completely ironic because no one is in school) so its been homemade chicken soup, split pea soup and lentil soup.  Here's hoping I don't get sick (because mom's can't get sick anyway, am I right?)

Kinsey's been watching Home and oh my goodness, so good!  Stephanie recommended it a couple of weeks ago and now I know why.  Gets me weepy in the same place every time.  And it's also funny (hello, Jim Parson's and Steve Martin.)

We started PreK homeschool this week and it's going so-so.  I'm sure I'll be writing a post about this, so I'll spare details.  Let's just say it's a short and sweet 10 minutes of wrestling of the minds.

Here's to September! The heralding in of Fall.  And boy, do I have some fun things in the works come Fall!

Linking up with Shay, Sheaffer and Mel.

  1. The cooler weather has been amazing. I am SO ready for fall. I have been meaning to check out that movie too!

  2. Found your blog through Courtney’s blog (Sweet Turtle Soup) and so glad that I did. I am so jealous that you have cooler weather. It’s still hitting the triple digits here in Texas. Boo! I am ready for boots, scarves and all things pumpkin! Fall is my all-time favorite. Love your transition pieces. I need a new wardrobe, desperately. My husband took Mason to see Home when it was in the theatres, but I haven’t seen it yet. Sounds like I need to watch it.

  3. I'm DESPERATE for cooler weather, but we'll be stuck at or near 90º for a while. Lame. It would do wonders for me if I could just bust out a sweater/sweatshirt or two. But nope, still rocking the tanks.

    I've been meaning to check out Home. Everyone keeps raving about how great it is. I'm just hoping I can convince Marcus to sit still for the duration.

  4. I want cool weather, send some my way! and what is PSL? I should probably know that...right?

  5. I'm just HOPING that Fall and Fall weather actually comes to Southern California this year! I'm DYING with this stupid heat and humidity. I don't usually like cold but I'm totally craving it right now!!
    Also, is Home age appropriate for Mason? I wanted to show it to him but my MIL took my nieces and said my 5 year old niece didn't really understand so I didn't know if it was too old for him?
    PS You are a rockstar for reading so much!! The last time I read a book was...?

  6. What is this cooler weather of which you speak?

    My first Hilderbrand was ... i don't remember the name.. but it was a group of friends spending the summer at a beach house. One had cancer or something. But the one lady's husband cheated on her and was a total dick about it, then she found out she was pregnant, when she finally told him he was like all aww baby I love you and she was like k let's get together. I was like excuse me?

  7. I read Tuesdays With Morrie years ago and it is still one of my favourite books! And YES to fall!

  8. We had AWESOME weather last week and now it's hot as Hell again and I want to shot myself. I hate hot weather and pretty much the bulk of all things Summer.
