ONE: Last Fall I fell in love with the Autumn scent at Bath and Body Works. I had it for Wallflowers around my house, and this year, I also bought the room spray. It is a light, fresh scent and it makes my house smell so nice! I feel like it’s appropriate to use now before Fall really hits – it’s not too much like pumpkin spice, a fire outside, or leaves falling. Those scents will be used later!
TWO: I’ve been thinking about my Fall wardrobe, and all I want to wear is neutrals: cream, black, white, olive green, gray, and navy. With gold or mixed metal jewelry. Is that too boring?
THREE: I haven’t been eating in my normal, healthy way. And I got sick this past week. I haven’t been sick in a really long time. Like 2 years. I’m planning to get back on track – cut out a lot of sugar and salt, eat fewer grains, and drink more water. I typically eat vegetables every meal – I’m going to get back to this. I’ve let myself have cereal for breakfast lately – I’m going to go back to my spinach/fruit smoothies. This motivation from Hungry Meets Healthy is helping.
FOUR: Planning to make this Avocado and Tuna salad from Barefoot Contessa soon. We’re going to begin training for a half marathon asap, and this would be healthy, but also nourishing and full of good fats. I would use sriracha instead of Tabasco, and I’d go light on salt. I think it would also be delicious with wild caught salmon.
FIVE: Spontaneous baptisms at our church last weekend. We are in a two week series called Raised to Life. The main goal of our church is this: “So that people far from God will be raised to life in Christ.” Some verses on baptism: Romans 6:4, Acts 2:38-41. Watch the sermon here
Enjoy your weekend!
