With life moving at full speed ahead this past month, I feel like I’ve been a little distant when it comes to blogging. That hasn’t been purposeful but is the reality when I am working on posts semi-last minute (aka the night before they are set to go live). Once I get through writing about my week for Step Into My Week posts, I am tired all over again from thinking about all that I had going on that the “Lately” section of those posts has been non-existent for the past few months. 

I thought it might be fun to update y’all on some of the smaller things I’ve been up to/loving lately since I sometimes fail to include them in my Monday (in this week’s case, Tuesday) posts. A pulse check of sorts, which is what our professors called our grad school meetings, spent touching base on what was going on in our classrooms while teaching. 

Reading: Undercurrents by Nora Roberts
I’ve fallen out of routine when it comes to reading at night. I am going to try to prioritize getting back into the habit of this in November since it is a great way to unwind at the end of the day. I was sent the book Undercurrents a while back and have been reading it for WAY longer than it should take to get through it. It is broken up into multiple parts, and the first part felt like a complete story in itself, so I’ll be interested to see how the rest of the book connects. I’m not positive what genre I’d classify it as but will keep y’all updated on whether or not I’d recommend it.

Listening To: How I Built This
Y’all probably know I love audiobooks, but I haven’t had the time to really get into one and finish it before it is due back. Because of this, I’ve been relying on podcasts more as of late. I’m on the hunt for a good mystery/crime series but recently have been listening to select episodes of How I Built This per my dad’s suggestions and LOVE hearing about how brands I know and love came about. The nice thing about this podcast is that I don’t feel like I have to listen to each episode in order and can jump around based on my interests instead! 

Watching: Gilmore Girls
Re-watching Gilmore Girls has pretty much become a tradition for me in the fall. Having seen the series so many times, it is a comforting show to have on in the background while I’m working on other things. 

When I find something I love, I tend to wear or use it so much in a short amount of time that. I should grow tired of it but don’t. That is the case with all of the above pieces that I am already over wearing this fall. You’ve probably already seen them on me or my Instagram, and honestly, you may want to get used to it since they aren’t going anywhere any time soon. 

Looking Forward To: Halloween
Halloween completely snuck up on me this year. It feels silly saying that given that the date doesn’t change but with October passing at lightning speed, the 31st being tomorrow doesn’t feel like it should be a reality. I’m celebrating with some friends tomorrow night by eating chili together and handing out candy, and then Friday night am planning to attend a big costume party. I’m still at a loss of what to be and would love any suggestions you may have. 

Planning: To Get Ahead On Quarter 4 Blog Content This Weekend
Aside from working out, a Halloween party, and hopefully a fun girl’s night on Saturday, this weekend is going to be spent working ahead on blog posts for the coming months. There’s a lot of behind the scenes stuff I also need to accomplish, and I’m hoping to head to a favorite coffee shop at some point this weekend to begin tackling the to-do list! 

I’d love a quick synopsis of what you’ve been up to lately if you want to share that in the comments!
