Fall fever has hit and even though it still feels like summer, I am embracing fall in full force. Pumpkin woodchuck ciders and a new fall bag (fell for the Phillip Lim hype, duh) were necessities in this week's Target trip.
Cardstar is one of those helpful apps that you have to download. One of the difficult things about moving so often is adapting to new grocery stores. I swear I have rewards cards for every store under the sun and still had to get a new one for Winn Dixie when we moved to Florida. Cardstar lets you scan the barcodes of all of your cards and store them in one app on your phone. Whenever you go to the store, the cashier can just scan the barcode on your phone. Now I don't have to worry about carrying around a zillion cards or forgetting one. I did: Winn Dixie, Kroger, Giant, CVS, VA library, FL library, Staples, Sam's Club, Costco, and BJ's. (Please don't ask why I belong to all three big box stores at the same time :/ )
I put The Defining Decade by Dr. Meg Jay on my must read list months ago after seeing it on Smart, Pretty Awkward but completely forgot about it. I happened to come across it at the library and remembered to check it out. At first, I was totally hooked. I mean talking about it all the time, making me rethink things I was certain about, telling Rob that it was changing my life, etc etc. But about 3/4 of the way through it got a little repetitive and/or I lost interest so I never actually finished the last couple of chapters. With that said, I got a lot out of the first half of the book and definitely think it is worth reading!! It is just more of a "rent from the library" instead of a "buy on your kindle" book.
I have been hearing such wonderful things about Barre classes and while they seem to be everywhere in Virginia, studios offering Barre are not easy to find around here. To try it out before committing to an hour drive and 15 bucks a class, I started doing this video at home. I must say, I kind of love it. It is perfect for days that I want to squeeze a quick workout in and don't have much time. I think I might just stick to youtube for now.
I wore white jeans yesterday. All I can say is "Haters gonna hate". It's 90 degrees here; that's still summertime, and frankly the humidity is finally dying down enough to be able to wear white pants at all! Sorry y'all but for Florida, I'm ignoring this labor day rule.
