Friday Favorites

Happy September! It’s been a long week around here so I’m excited it’s the weekend. Here’s what I’m loving this week:

Fabric Shopping

I have had a hard time figuring out curtains for the dining room. I have very neutral curtains in the living room and kitchen areas (literally white linen panels, doesn’t get much plainer than that). For the dining room I wanted to have something more fun and bold. I prefer to see fabric in person so I’ve looked in store here locally and there’s not much. The second picture is one I strongly considered. The third is a fabric I love but the colors don’t totally work.

I’ve been doing more walking lately and I’m trying to visit different trails in the area that I’ve not yet hiked. The weather right now is just about perfect for it.

Meal Prep

I have been trying to have more fruits and vegetables prepped and ready to go so that we will grab them more often. I got these vegetable and fruit containers to help keep them fresh. I got my set at Costco but you can find them on Amazon too. The Costco set comes with 2 larger ones and 2 smaller ones and is a better deal but if you do not have a Costco membership then you can grab them from Amazon.

Quiet Lunch

I had a couple of appointments in another city the other day and I grabbed a lunch by myself in between them. It was nice to slow down for a little while and have a quiet lunch.



We started watching Ahsoka this week. It’s so good. Our kids were big into both the Clone Wars and Rebels cartoons so it’s a ton of fun for us for how that plays into this show now.

I hope you all have a great Friday!
