At around noon today, I met up with my friend Sadie for lunch at Moe’s.
We both ordered chicken salads with tons of toppings before claiming a booth and settling in for an hour to talk about blogging.
I met Sadie a few weeks ago at my first Junior League meeting and thought she was so spunky and fun. She is also a blogger (she blogs about interior design and decorating at Nifty Thrifty Decorator) and asked me meet her for lunch to talk about my local freelance work and blogging.
We had a lot to talk about and I had a great time! I know I’ll be seeing her soon!
After our lunch, I swung by TJMaxx to pick up a little somethin’ somethin’ for the birthday boy to give to him on Friday. While I was there, I almost bought these adorable doggie pajamas for Sadie to wear on Halloween.
I ended up leaving them behind because Halloween is often too hot in Florida for Sadie to wear such a warm outfit. She’ll just have to wait until December to bust out her Christmas pajamas.
I managed to keep my time in TJMaxx under control (that store tends to suck me in), but got a little sidetracked by all of the fall decorations and foodie treats. In the end, I left with two pumpkin-related finds.
Pumpkin spice coffee and a pumpkin brulee Yankee Candle. The candle smells like joy and happiness.
The other items looked a little too “Halloween-y” and I tend to gravitate toward generic autumn decorations since I like to keep all of our decorations up through Thanksgiving, so no fun signs or figurines were purchased.
Lunch and a side stop at TJMaxx made for a nice little two-hour break in my day. When I arrived back home, I parked my butt in front of my NASM textbook for some study time before typing up this blog post.
More studying to come!
