A quick little snapshot of life here in Charlotte right now:
+ It's a gray day and there is the perfect fall-chill in the air.
+ My space heater is kicking out warm air on my legs.
+ I'm looking out the window at a tree that is dropping leaves as I type.
+ I'm sipping on my fave K-Cup, the chai tea latte.
I'm truly embracing this autumn season!
Last night I posted on IG that I was slipping into hibernation mode. Y'all, I can't help it. As soon as the days start getting shorter and it's dark not long after I arrive home from work, I head straight for the couch until it's time to head to bed (lazy bones!).
I also have a hibernation uniform.
Yoga pants and a cozy shirt. Until recently, that has been an old long-sleeved sorority t-shirt (those were hard to come by in college -- we CHEERED when our event chair would debut a pocket tee or a long-sleeved tee!). Okay, so now I have a new obsession. The Old Navy raglan sweatshirts.
I love love love my "Heart and Soul" version (I ended up keeping the XS, it was still plenty roomy for me) and on Monday I picked up the heathered gray version above.
The only reason I bought the lighter gray one is because I was wearing the H+S one every single night and I thought I would get tired of it. These puppies are literally less than $7 now on the website so I will be stocking up on more of them. Just a note, in my store they are not that inexpensive. The two more that I really want are the yellow one and the light pink one but they are currently out of stock for my size.
Heart and Soul Sweatshirt (now $6.97)
Grey Crewneck Sweatshirt (now $6.97)
Secondly, SUPER excited because tonight is our meet-up for Charlotte bloggers! EEEK! We are going to be learning how to make really cute bangles (and we get to keep the one we make) so I'm just thrilled. I also have a happy hour date beforehand with one of my blogging faves who can't make the meet-up, too. :)
And lastly, I treated myself to the BEST mani-pedi on Tuesday. It was Ian's birthday and we had our nice dinner planned, so at lunchtime I decided to backburner the errands I had to run and opt for a little nail TLC instead. This place near my office is your run-of-the-mill nail salon but it's a good one. They did my pedicure simultaneously with my manicure -- I consider it one of life's little luxuries to have two technicians fussing over you. It reminds me of my very favorite "snip snip here, snip snip there" Emerald City scene from Wizard of Oz.
Happy Friday Eve! See you back here tomorrow for the Five On Friday link-up!
