First and foremost, I'd like to spend a moment celebrating my grandmother Marilyn who's celebrating quite the birthday today. I won't tell you how old she is but I will tell you, she looks good and has barely aged from this picture below, taken in October of 1990. I can't say the same for myself. So, Happy Birthday Nana. I hope today is filled with all your favorite things: painfully hot tea and sugar-y delicious frosting and that one day, when I'm your age, I hope my life is filled with as much love and happiness as yours is.
I'll be celebrating Nana today, and this week...
+ I'm feeling like I finally have enough time to get back into a routine. The past month has been a fury of traveling and family visitors so I'm very excited to be home for the next 5 weeks in a row.
+ I'm planning on cooking. And, before we get ahead of ourselves, I'm also planning on grocery shopping.
+ I want to go pumpkin picking and make a jack-o-lantern. And roast pumpkin seeds. Nothing says fall like that.
+ There's a a definite chance that my fall scented candles will be on high rotation this week.
+ I'd like to take a trip to T.J. Maxx. Their Maxxinista Blogger promotion is really making me want to take a trip. But, there's a catch: I have to find one in a good neighborhood as they cater to their audiences. Not sure the Fullerton Pkwy location is going to be a hit.
+ I'm already homesick for a good cuddle with Dunkin.
