Assorted Monday Thoughts

We had a good weekend. We ate a quick dinner at home on Friday night, and then headed to downtown Greensboro so I could take Garrett to Cheesecakes by Alex. I got pumpkin cheesecake (duh) and Garrett got kahlua espresso cheesecake. After we ordered, the couple behind us only got one slice to share because a "a slice for each of us is just too much!" Child, please. Get out of here.
We spent Saturday night with Jenna and Andy eating pizza and playing board games, which might be my new favorite way to spend the weekend.
We spent Sunday doing a little bit of shopping at the outlets about 45 minutes from here. (The Panthers weren't on so I didn't have a football game to avoid watching. Seriously, we usually win when I'm not watching.)

Also, Jenna got us these adorable cups the last time they were in Asheville. I can't remember if I've ever mentioned it on here, but Garrett calls me "bird" and I call him "bear" (vom, I know) and Jenna remembered (because she's amazing) and got us these as a housewarming gift! I'm thinking I'm going to try to plant some succulents in them. Those are supposed to be pretty easy, right?

I'm not a huge Halloween person, but I have LOVED seeing all the costumes you guys have been coming up with!! I think my favorite so far has been Rachel's from Life Unsweetened. SO GOOD!!!

I have some phenomenal recipes coming up this week... Parmesan Crusted Chicken with Kale Caesar Salad and Roasted Red Pepper Linguine with salmon and Taco Soup and.... something else I haven't picked out yet. There are too many nights in the week, right?

Speaking of food, if you haven't made rice krispy treats with pumpkin spice marshmallows yet, I implore you to do so. Seriously, the best. The four of us ate an ENTIRE batch on Saturday night.

I fell in love with the J Crew Field Jacket yesterday, and I'm trying to decide if it'll be worth the splurge. If anyone wants to throw me a hundred bucks, I'll gladly send you my Paypal information.

What is everyone else up to today? For a Monday, this day hasn't been too terrible. Although Garrett bought me a PSL this morning, so that always helps.

The field jacket is DEFINITELY worth the price. But wait until JCrew has a 25% or 30% off sale...that's what I did this summer and I'm already planning on getting it in the other color (I have it in navy).
