The fact that I have the time and energy (and internet connection!) to do this post means I am getting closer to a new normal!

We are almost all the way unpacked! I would say we are 95% of the way unpacked. Now we are left with that last little bit, the couple of boxes that are just so hard to find places for!
I am really excited because we are kind of doing some different things in this new place. I got some bright curtains for downstairs. We ordered hairpin legs to add to the tabletop top that Bech built. We have a new gray couch. So lots of new colors and looks going on downstairs. Once I feel like it's somewhat put together, I'll add some pictures.

It's almost fall! It's no secret that fall is my FAVORITE. Seriously, I love fall a lot.
So I've turned to my Fall Food Pinterest board.
I made these pumpkin cream cheese muffins and we all snacked on them all week. So yummy! It was the perfect mix of sweet and pumpkin-y.
Sidenote, check out what's in the stores already? Frosted Sugar Cookie coffee creamer! That stuff is absolutely amazing.

I've talked before about my love for Louise Penny. She's a Canadian mystery writer, and I love her books!
The past couple of years her new books have been released in August. I've been pre-ordering them so I can read them right away, and this year was no different. The new book is SO good! If you like mysteries, you should check her out.

I'm going to be honest with you all right now. I swore I wasn't going to watch Bachelor in Paradise. I promised myself I wouldn't. I mean, c'mon, it looks pretty trashy. But then I read Pinterest Told Me To's blog recaps. Y'all, if you watch this show or Bachelor, you should read her recaps. They are HILARIOUS.
Anyway, after reading her recaps, I couldn't resist. I've been catching up on the series. Anyone else watching?
I do have a question: What am I not seeing in Jared? ALL of the girls wanted to meet him and date him. I just don't get it?

Jack starts school next week! Yay!
I love my little Jackie boy, but we both need a break from each other. We have been together NON stop for a month. Jack does really well at school and with other kids. He has always thrived in those kind of situations.
And I am glad to get some one on one time with Gil and, while Gil naps, some me time. I still have so much to do around the house and I am looking forward to grocery shopping with just one little boy!
So be on the lookout for first day of school pictures next week!
I hope everyone has a wonderful Labor Day weekend!
