I have a special “spot” on the couch. It is my spot, and everyone in the family knows it. If my kids are in my spot, they know to move when I come in the den. (Yes. I am that mean of a mom. If they grumble about moving, I make them sleep in the chicken coop.)
There are many days when I don’t even get to sit in my spot because I am so busy, then end up having somewhere to be in the evening too. This Friday evening I was wiped out! I wanted nothing more than my spot on the couch under a cozy blanket with a cup of tea. I recently got a manicure, and I really love how clean and sweet this bubble bath color is. I like to keep it neutral for the most part. I know the dark wine-ish colors are popular again this fall, but I’m keeping it Switzerland.
This tea just has fall written all over it. I added a couple of tablespoons of heavy cream and it tasted like a cinnamon bun. Heavenly!
My kids love picking out soups for the different seasons. They actually enjoy washing their hands if I let them pick their own scent. Whatever it takes, right? Our favorite fall smells this year are: Weekend Apple Picking, Pumpkin Pecan Waffles, and Golden Autumn Citrus.
I bought three pairs of pants on Friday. Three. I do not ever do stuff like this. First of all, I usually don’t have the money to buy anything, and secondly, I am just not a big shopper. (groceries, yes. clothes/shoes/bags, no.) I spent more than I was planning, but these Shine Tights from Lululemon (on the right) are so amazing I had to buy two pairs. They are high-waisted, so you can just tuck all that stuff right in. (You could roll them down for they low-rise look, but if you have carried giant babies in your belly, that look is long gone.)
My friend Jenny has been trying to get me into these for a few months now. I didn’t try them because I thought the shine would accent a feature I try to downplay. Pear shaped women don’t wear shiny things on the bottom! I tried on the black pair in the store and loved them so much, I bought the green pair too. That is BIG guys. Because pear shaped women don’t wear anything except black on the bottom. Or really, really, really dark gray.
I promise these are so well cut, and very flattering. (Obvisoulsy…I bought 2 pairs!) I have worn them non stop since I bought them! I even wore them with boots and a cute top and they looked really good, so they are really versatile. Worth every penny. My husband is not mad about the money I spent because my butt looks so good in them.
I also bought a singlet top in turquoise that was on sale and pair of wunder under roll down pants…which for me means high-waisted. I am so happy that all these high-waisted stuff is in! My curves are rejoicing!
To wrap it up my fall must haves: my cozy spot on the couch, manicure that look like you didn’t get a manicure, cinnamon tea, soaps that have a “fall” scent, and shine tights from Lululemon.
