It’s been quite some time since I shared a Thinking Out Loud post, so how about we catch up?
Enjoy the random thoughts and musings thrown into one awesome post!
1. Are you a potpourri person?
I love potpourri, but I don’t always display it like this.
I purchased this meadow potpourri from the Williams-Sonoma outlet ages ago, and finally broke it out this week. Scott doesn’t mind when I put it in vases or out of sight, but I prefer to keep it out in the open in a bowl or vase like this.
Tacky? Pretty? I’m not exactly sure what it is, but it sure smells heavenly.
2. Life In Leggings is on #Periscope!
I finally bit the bullet and signed up for a Periscope account last weekend. You can find and follow by searching: lifeinleggings. I’m still getting used to how everything works, but I’ve posted a few videos that have already gone up and expired.
One was on my typical order at Chipotle, and how to cut the calories of your standard chicken burrito in half.
I’d love to scope and share more. What would you like to see? Any scope subject ideas?
3. I’ve been loving country music lately.
Are you a fan? Most people love or hate it. This week, I’ve been revisiting some of my favorite older albums from Rascal Flatts and Kieth Urban. I’m also really digging Sam Hunt‘s tracks right now. This type of music makes me want to go to an outdoor concert and rock out in my cowboy boots!
(Flashback to that time I danced with Big & Rich in concert! What?)
Here’s hoping the weather would allow such a thing this time of year…
4. Speaking of weather, it’s been gorgeous out.
I started the week complaining of being able to “see my breath” on my morning walk with Roadie, but I guess I should eat my words. The temperatures have certainly turned around, and it has been sunny and beautiful all week. As I mentioned yesterday, this is the time of year that Michigan actually wins in the weather department.
Summer, stick around for just a little while longer, will ya?
5. Do any of you use Amazon Prime Pantry?
Scott mentioned that some friends of ours use it and were talking about it with him last weekend. I mean… I use Amazon, but not nearly enough. With a Prime membership that offers free 2-day shipping, I couldn’t tell you why! I need to check into this Amazon Prime Pantry service sooner that later.
You can order anything from groceries and pet food to toilet paper and cleaning products. This would be extra convenient in the wintertime!
6. I haven’t had a pumpkin spice latte yet.
Who am I? I know. I’m disappointing everyone who expected this basic white girl to run out at the first chance to indulge, most likely dressed in leggings, a high bun, and UGG boots. What can I say… I’m waiting for the perfect fall day, and I’m just not there yet.
(Ha, this picture was from this exact time last year. I guess I was ready!)
I have, however, already enjoyed pumpkin soup. Yum!
7. Speaking of not being ready… my friend Carissa shared this today.
Are you getting excited for the upcoming holidays or freaking out?
Yeah, me too.
I actually really love this time of year. I adore everything about the fall season, and will even take the stress of cooking around Thanksgiving and holiday shopping soon after that. While I was walking Roadie this morning, I couldn’t help but to wonder what the holidays will look like for us this year. Will we be in Michigan? Will we be in a new home across the country? There’s just so many possibilities. Wherever we are (and as silly as this may seem), I just hope we are able to settle in and have a tree up right before or after Thanksgiving Dinner. Too soon?
8. Big Brother fans…
I know there are several of you out there! Ahh. I can’t believe the live finale is on next week. Who do you predict will go to finals and win it all? I predict that Vanessa will win HOH and then take Liz to the finale with her since she’ll probably only have 2 votes from the jury house. As much as everyone felt betrayed by her, I think they’ll come around and realize her game was on point the entire time!
9. Tabbouleh = <3
It’s no secret that I’m a hummus lover. I would guess that I have it as part of a snack at least 3-4 times a week. Last week, I remembered just how delicious tabbouleh is, too. Scott and I ordered it as an appetizer mixed in with hummus, and I practically spoiled my entire appetite right then and there by eating it all.
So flipping good!
Well, I guess that’s it for now. What would you be thinking out loud today?
