The first week of school is in!!! It feels great to start this new season after such a wonderful break during the summer. Here is what made me happy this week:
Starbucks brought out their famous #psl early this year and EVERYBODY had something to say about it. It was like seeing eggnog in July. Everyone said it was too early. Get. Over. It. Of course Starbucks wants to capitalize on one of their best selling drinks that is just good marketing. Even if you are desperately hanging onto summer it is over. The evenings are much cooler, the leaves are changing, the whole earth including Starbucks is telling us that a new season is here no matter what date is on the calendar. I happily got my Pumpkin Spice Latte on the day it came out. It is my favourite drink of the entire year and I get to enjoy it even longer. #woot
Speaking of pumpkin spice…I bought the cutest mug recently. I found this sweet mug at Indigo and I have been making my own pumpkin spice lattes at home in it. They have other ones their too and in different colours but for obvious reasons this one spoke to me! I have all kinds of Christmas themed mugs but this is my first fall themed one. My Fall decor is growing this year.
I read a total of ONE book this summer. I spent the long weekend devouring this book. As soon as I finished it I could not believe I have not made time for reading lately. Recently, I replaced some of my Netflix watching time with reading and have been loving it. I am back to bookworm status and am already onto my next book!
First school week in and it’s official I am in love with the yumbox. I have been able to pack Miss Charlie good, healthy lunches and she has been gobbling them up. It is just so easy and simple to pack this container for her. She loves that she can quickly open and eat it at lunch time and then get out on the playground. I think it is safe to say that this is the best back to school purchase I made this year!
After much debate I finally made the Matilda Jane ruffle pant purchase! These came on Zulily a couple of weeks ago and I knew I had to have them. However can adults wear ruffle pants!? I have decided they can and these are the most comfortable pants I have put on my body. They feel like I am wearing leggings and are made from the same material. Miss Charlie was happy to twin with me. Oh how I love this age!
That is it for my happy this week. Congrats Mamas on making it through the first week of school!
