Step Into My Week 10.26

 Hopefully, by now, your week is moving along quite nicely! While I usually like to have Step Into My Week posts up earlier in the week, I’m slowly learning not to beat myself up about when they go up, but instead, be glad I have them up for you! It does make remembering all that I’ve been up to a little bit harder now that part of this week has already passed too. 

I can’t really remember what all I did on Monday, but since Mondays usually involve work meetings, that is my suspicion. I do think I worked from home most of the day, but I am drawing a blank when it comes to what else I did, what I cooked, and even what I may have watched that night. Usually, Mondays are our bible study nights, but we had rescheduled that to Wednesday so chances are I was in bed early! 

On Tuesday, I went to an MPower class in the morning before starting my workday. I had one more work meeting that day and was able to order some props for upcoming shoots too. I responded to emails and did typical work from home tasks up until the afternoon when I went to Hibiscus House to stage some pieces and knockout some work there. That afternoon Hunter and I went for a walk and then made an easy but delicious sheet pan dinner. We chopped a red onion, sweet potatoes, brussels sprouts, and Conecuh sausage, coated everything in olive oil and sprinkled on garlic powder, pepper, and rosemary, and put it in the oven at 400 degrees for around 25 minutes with a couple of minutes of carefully watched broiling at the end! It was delicious, and I’ll be making it again soon. We watched some of the Braves game and then turned on Squid Game to see another episode. It’s an interesting show, but definitely intense.

I had a food shoot at work on Wednesday and was in the office most of the day for that. In the afternoon, I went to an MPower class before coming home to quickly shower and fix myself dinner before bible study. After bible study, I got in bed to do a little more work and eventually, go to bed. 

Thursday morning, I went to MPower and came home to quickly rinse off and make my lunch since I had another food shoot in the office that day. We were able to move through our shot list pretty efficiently, and the end of the afternoon was spent working from home. I went for a walk after my workday was over and cooked myself dinner to eat while my roommate, Rebecca, and I watched Dear Evan Hansen. 

I had one more shoot day on Friday, but this time it was on location for our Porches and Pumpkins feature. I styled 80 green, white, mossy, and burlap pumpkins on a pretty porch and can not wait to see the final images chosen for the magazine! We finished around 1:00, and I went home to shower before running errands in the afternoon. That night, Hunter and I went to our friends Macy and Drew’s house to cook dinner and watch a movie. Macy set up a pretty table on their screened porch, which is where we watched scream and drank Hot Toddies. 



 Saturday was set to be a full day since Hunter and I went to the Alabama vs. Tennessee game in Tuscaloosa. Some friends rented a party bus to take us there, and we left around noon despite the game not starting until six. The ride there felt quick and once we arrived we walked towards campus and went to a few fraternity houses and wandered around the tailgates. We went into the game around 5:00 and stayed until the end. It was a little shaky at the beginning, but Alabama scored plenty of touchdowns by the end of it. Instead of waiting until midnight to leave with the bus, we rode back to Birmingham with Hunter’s brother and made it back around 12:30.


After an eventful Saturday, I slept in a bit on Sunday and eventually did my typical Sunday tasks of grocery shopping and laundry. In the afternoon, I made a big salad to have for lunches during the week and caught up on the phone with my parents and Nell. I had leftovers for dinner and watched The Haunted Mansion that night while getting through some work that night. I was in bed and asleep early after a fun weekend! 

I hope that y’all had a great week and weekend too!
