This is probably my new favorite way to write a post. It's like favorites...but better. Even though lots of the things I put in the 'love' category could work for 'personal' so it doesn't make the most sense...just go with it.
All things fox and Cost Plus World Market. My mom bought me this adorable spoon rest and fall kitchen towel at Cost Plus (that's how I shorten it) and I am in love. And then I laughed when I set the spoon rest on the counter next to our two sets of salt and pepper shakers: a set of two foxes, and a fox salt shaker that goes with an owl pepper shaker. Yes, I have a problem. (Really want this blanket, guys.)
I finally finished sending thank you notes. I wrote my last thank you note on Sunday. Yes, that's September 18th. Yes, we got married on October 10th. They say you have a year, right? I took that extremely seriously. (Also I looove these thank you notes we got from Target!)
These babies. Have you tried them? If you haven't, you should. The picture is terrible because I just snapped it really quick to send to Michael when I was loading up on treats for our viewing of Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban. These have been a favorite of mine for years, but they're kind of hard to find sometimes.
That now I don't only get a weekly update email from Bloglovin', but it tells me in my feed how many new followers I got. Getting that -1 follower email is all fine and dandy, but staring at a -1 all week is not fun. I don't even really care about followers and page views, but the -1 is still a downer. (Also I had 200 followers exactly before then and I was excited about that milestone/round number...I just need one more follower and no unfollowers and then I don't need anyone else to follow me ever! Ha!)
In the same vein as last week... I hadn't seen this story before, somehow it stayed out of the news unlike Brock Turner. This guy raped (I don't care about the technicalities; I know they dropped the rape charges, but in my mind any penetration is rape) two unconscious girls and they woke up to it happening. So, no, I don't agree with the judge's bullsh*t ruling that he avoids all jail time and after two years of probation this will be completely expunged from his record. He gets no consequences. His probation includes two years of not drinking alcohol...he's 18 or 19, so he isn't even legally allowed to. Wow, what a harsh punishment. RAGE. I do appreciate, however, that it seems that the school he was planning on going to has dropped him. At least that's what the article makes it sound like.
PersonalOnly one outfit picture this week... And it's the exact same as Friday's outfit last week but with swapped out pants and no necklace...

Top - Camo Skinnies - Sandals (similar) - Watch
I went shopping with my mom a week ago Saturday, and she generously bought me a new coat! My rain coat was way too big on me, and it was super light so it provided no warmth. I needed one that fit and was a little bit heavier. I had basically resigned myself to paying about $200, but this jacket was (and still is, as of yesterday) on sale for $140 (from $210) and my mom offered to buy it for me (I got the navy)! (Don't you love my facial expression? Haha!) I wore it to an MLS game on Saturday and we had to walk 15-ish minutes in the rain to get there and it was perfect! Also, I feel like a grown-up in it.
We made this slow cooker chicken curry on Sunday and it was delicious! Definitely recommend!
