1. Isabelle was SO excited to celebrate the 100th day of school this week by dressing like a 100-year-old 😂

2. After we finished off the last of the rice krispie treats from Joseph’s birthday last week, another batch was promptly requested, and I was happy to oblige! It’s an all-time favorite treat at this house!

3. I finished Before We Were Yours earlier this week and absolutely LOVED it. Could not put it down, an easy five stars. I’ve moved on to Beach Read; I’m just getting started with it.

4. Have you ever made a temperature blanket? I first heard about this probably 15 years ago and still haven’t done it! The idea is that you assign a certain color to a temperature range, and then you crochet or knit one row in the corresponding color for that day’s temperature, and at the end of the year, you have a blanket and a visual representation of what the weather was like. I may start one and go back and look up the temps for January!

5. SO excited to hear that Billy Joel has a new single coming out! Easily my favorite artist; I last saw him in concert when I was pregnant with Dominic. I’m convinced that’s why he likes it when I put on his music in the car!

6. I’ve been having some issues with the shortcut to The Weekend Dish (as well as a couple of others) and I know a few people have reached out asking how to access the posts; the easiest way to see it is to bookmark the following page and check back on Saturdays: (that will show all weekend dish posts) or to sign up for my newsletter; you will receive it in your inbox every Saturday. You can sign up here >> I apologize for the inconvenience!

7. Really loving this list, full of useful nuggets >> The Ten Most Important Time Management Principles I’ve Learned (and Used)

8. What’s your favorite nighttime snack? Something sweet, popcorn, a bowl of cereal, something else?

9. TV talk… we finished Poker Face (can’t wait for the next season!) and just started Blue Lights (on BritBox). We’ve watched one episode so far and really liked it.

10. TGIF! I hope you have a cozy weekend!
