First things first! My very favorite thing this week...
My very first post over at The Blended Blog! Woo hoo!! Check it out here!
A few posts ago, I declared October my very own #ShopSmall month. I've been doing well with that. I've bought a few things from small online boutiques and this past Saturday purchased a custom sign from a cute little shop on Main Street in town that's being made as I type...I see it being a Friday fave next week! HA! This dress I got from @poshmygosh is definitely a new fall fave!
Speaking of my Main Steet, this past week on Main Street in my town was the annual Fall Festival. Fun for the whole family...or a party of one such as myself! One fun thing they have there is a chowder and chili contest amongst all the restaurants/establishments on Main Street. For $5, you got 15 tickets to try the 15 different chilis and chowders in the contest. Last year I went to the festival and was told about the contest too late, so when I went to some, I missed out. This year I was prepared!! I went right at noon, got myself some tickets and started sampling. One thing I will say...15 is a lot!! I think I made it through 9 or ten (and offered the rest of my tickets to other people I met along the way) Still a pretty great feat!! All in all, it was a great day! I did end up seeing a lot of school parents, but that's inevitable! And I got a hug from a Super Hott Dad, so my day was made! LOL...Solitary Life People...Solitary Life!! This was my ballot!
Another fun thing I got in the mail this week was my very first Pop Sugar Must have Box. it's one of those monthly subscription boxes. I saw it advertised on my FB page and saw that the new Mindy Kaling book was in it, so I thought I'd try it. Super fun things in it. Loved these Slipper Socks and the Belgian Boys StroopWaffel!
Another fun fall thing I received in the mail this week was this!
