Currently: Crafting, Auctions, and It’s Almost FALL!

Posted September 4, 2019 by shooting in Discussion, Personal / 32 Comments

It’s the beginning of a new month and I’m linking up with Anne (Currently) and Kristen (What’s New With You)! 

Making: Crafts at various libraries around me with my mom. This is a usual occurrence, but here are some of our latest creations-

Watercolor Handkerchiefs: Mine is on the left (purple and green) and my mom’s is on the right (more sunset-y)

Tie Dye Socks: My mom’s are on the left and mine are on the right!

Taking: Bids! I have another auction going on. You can bid to win an ANNOTATED copy of Waste of Space by Gina Damico. Annotated means the author wrote notes in the margins of the book – a one-of-a-kind item for any book fan. Plus, all the money from the highest bidder goes to First Book. Check out the book auction to learn more and bid!

Discovering: Way too many books for my wish list. It’s a problem, you guys. You can see SOME of the mysteries/thrillers I want to read in a recent blog post.

Consuming: All the meals from Freshly. I’ve talked about these before, and I am planning a full review post, but for now, if you want to try it out, feel free to use my affiliate link to help us BOTH save some money (you get $40 off, and I get $40 off). These are chef-cooked meals that you just warm up for a few minutes, and there are some really yummy ones. Plus, they are all gluten-free (there are also meals that are vegetarian, dairy free, etc. so you get a lot of choices!) I highly recommend.

Saving: Ideas for things to do this Fall. It’s my favorite season, and Halloween is my favorite holiday. There are always a million things to do though, and it can be tough to find the time for it all. However, I’m trying to make a list of things to do and see (both for the “adults” and things to do with my nieces and nephew!)

Feel free to answer any of these in the comments, or tell me what’s new with you?

  1. I just completed by 1,750th bootcamp class this morning. I’m sore and tired, but I’m feeling hella accomplished. 😀

    Looking forward to reading your review of Freshly. I’ve been seeing ads everywhere and I want to try it to save myself some time. I usually meal prep on Sundays but it takes me a whole day!

  2. What a fun post! I always love this time of year and going apple and pumpkin picking and on a hay ride and haunted house. Give me all the fall activities!!

    Wow, the scarves you and your mom made look great!

  3. I love those socks and handkerchiefs! They turned out so fun, the colors are fantastic! Fall is my favorite season too and I love getting all decorated for it!

  4. I’m doing Blue Apron now, but Freshly sounds sooo easy… might have to check it out for even MORE time savings 😉 And yes, the to-read list struggle is real. Even though I shouldn’t (because mine is so long), I’m hopping over to check out your list pronto, because I can’t help myself!

  5. RO

    I totally agree when it comes to books. I just can’t seem to help myself either(lol) Those tie-died shirts and handkerchiefs look so fabulous! Hugs, RO

  6. freshly sounds pretty neat! if i ever have a need for something like that i will definitely keep it in mind. love that they have vegetarian options!

  7. I did not know I wanted tie dye socks until I saw your picture but now I have a strong need to do some. And that is such a cool and original prize to bid on! Truly unique to have an author’s notes in it as well. Good luck with writing a list of things to do for fall, it’s definitely a season where there is so much to do but not enough time to fit it all in.

  8. Share those fall ideas, lady!! I love this time of year and I can’t wait to kick it off with some pumpkins and mums on the front porch once we’re done traveling 🙂 Those tie-dye items look awesome! My stuff always comes out brown. LOL

  9. Pretty hankies!

    Fall is my favorite season, too. I’m so looking forward to the cooling temps and the beautiful colors of the changing leaves!

  10. Oy. I really want to take advantage of our library more bc they offer so much, but holy cow. I’m slightly terrified of a toddler meltdown lol. That’s what he’s done with swim lessons so I’ve avoided the naturally quiet place.

  11. I have never tried one of those meal services, so I’m looking forward to your reviews. Also looking forward to see what fun activities you come up with to do this fall! Pumpkin patches (and carving, and painting), apple picking, hayrides and doing fall craft projects always seem to be a hit with kids!

  12. Those socks are so cute! I’m glad to hear you like the Freshly meals. My doctor just put me on a low carb diet and I’ve been researching meal delivery services to see which ones have low carb options. Freshly is definitely one of the ones I’m considering.
