We're a bit delayed here but you know what they say, better late than never. And hey, I'm home, I'm working and I'm blogging, currently from my mother's office. God knows if i was home, Dunkin's cuteness would be too distracting.
+ As stated above am home to celebrate the High Holidays (the Jewish New Year) and spend my mother's birthday with her for the first time in 6 years. She's the best. (see here)
+ Instead of a post of things she taught me, this year, I'll be sharing one of my favorites of her recipes: Easy Apple Pie. So be sure to visit on Thursday.
+ I've been doing some shopping and hit up some of the Labor Day Sales. I was very excited to score these pajamas on Shopbop's sale.
+ We also went to J.Crew, of course. I got this sweater, this tweed, this blouse, this skirt, and this skirt.
+ I also made a decision on a watch and bought this [kate spade] guy.
+ In addition, to my mom, its one of my favorite people, my roommate Amy's, birthday this coming weekend. We'll be celebrating that when I return to Chicago on Friday with a party on Saturday.
+ Now, this roommate of mine, she's kind of difficult to shop for. A bit too practical when it comes to, well, anything. Anyone have any ideas? I'll also be joining my pastry chef roommate to bake something delicious. Maybe, I'll even blog it.
+ I'm wishing for fall weather. I have new clothes I'm dying to wear. Fun outfits like the one above that I love. Flannels, layers, jeans, sparkles, sweaters, boots. Ah.
+ Also, I'm going to re-clean out my drawers but this time with a fine tooth comb, much stricter. I read this article last night and am going to take their advice and ask, "if I were shopping right this second, would I buy it?" If the answer is no, it's being donated, or put in storage. I already know I have a lot of things that fall into the no category with that question.
Have a GREAT week!

Needing: to finish my books still, my flight home was cancelled and turned into an early am flight so there was no reading
Thinking: I want some tea
Enjoying: being home with my family
Wondering: when the fall weather's going to it?
