Oh hello there! It’s been a whole week since I’ve posted, although it feels so much longer! I needed to just take a quick step back and this past week was full of all sorts of fun.
My mom came into town for a visit over the past week and we got to go do quite a few things. We attended two football games, one pro one college, as well as toured The Pentagon. We also got a little bit of shopping done and found a couple new fun little bookstores to pass the time in! Overall it was a really good visit and nice to have her come into town. She got to spend time with our sweet little boy and I was able to get a little bit more reading and planning done with her around.
The weather has also cooperated and we’ve got cooler temperatures and overall more Autumnal weather here. It’s been cloudy and gray the past week or two with rain here and there. The leaves are turning and falling quickly and I’ve been able to pull out my sweaters and boots! It’s the perfect weather for reading, tea drinking (or any hot beverage really) and a movie/music on in the background. Today I’ve got a little Harry Potter movie marathon going and I have selected a new book to read, Night Film by Marisha Pessl. I’ve definitely noticed that I’ve been wanting to head more towards the scary/creepy books as the weather starts to turn and have heard some great things about this book.
As for my hot beverage of choice, I’m steeping some tea (of course!). I’ve got the Treat Yourself blend currently steeping and am getting ready to settle in to my seat for a good amount of reading. Our sweet boy is down for a nap so I should get a decent amount of reading done.
I’ve got a tag and book review headed your way this week along with some book reviews for next week. I have finished a total of 3 books since I posted last and I’m excited to share them with you!
How has your week been? Anything exciting?
