Submitted + a fun find + date night!

Family cuddles on the couch Tuesday night before bed.
I sipped on a little Woodford while we watched Netflix. Any other whiskey/bourbon lovers out there?
Lu was a hot mess.
All the coffee. Every morning.
These really don’t look appetizing, do they? They might be my favorite flavor, but they sure look gross.
I am so excited about this fun find! I have been wanting new pillows, but they’re expensive. I decided to try some new pillow cases and see what I thought. I am SO impressed with these. I found them on Amazon (HERE). They’re a super durable material and really feel like they’ll hold up.
The zipper is high quality, too, so I’m not worried about it breaking. I got two of this pillow case.
That new pillow case will cover the pillows with the brown birds.
They fit perfectly and I love how they look!
I also got these. I love the “Not all who wander are lost” quote.
Lu has ruined the tops of these chairs, but I like these new pillow cases on them.
I feel like these match our living room better than the yellow did.
My dissertation is officially submitted! I’m just waiting on an answer about some copyrighting stuff, but other than that, I am FINISHED!
One week I will have different things for lunch so I don’t bore you. ; )
I went to the Y and spent a little time on the elliptical yesterday. I sipped on BCAAs after.
Still obsessed with this yogurt.
Still not used to seeing that before my las
t name.
Coconut curry hummus with Sriracha is delicious.
I met Katie for a beer at 4 By 4. It had been WAY too long since I had been there AND since she and I had had a girl date.
I definitely burnt that piece of toast, but dinner was sesame chicken, butternut squash and beets, and burnt toast. ; ) I topped it with balsamic glaze, so it looks even darker then it was. 
Dessert was a no-bake cookie. Mmmm. I made a bunch on Monday and they’re still here! I can’t believe I haven’t devoured all of them already. Look at my self control.
More family snuggles on the couch.
I’m trying to work on reading and journaling in this until my race next weekend. It really makes you think about some things!
I got 9 treadmill miles in this morning! They were tough. Working on that mental toughness!
I’m headed to the chiropractor and then have some computer work to knock out. Jake and I have date night tonight, so that’ll be a blast! Dinner and a movie. I’ll share all about it tomorrow!
Happy Friday Eve, friends!

    I love some Woodford Reserve 🙂 What’re you watching on Netflix? I’m in the middle of The Haunting of Hill House and it is sooo good and suspenseful.
    Also, love the new pillows! Did you get the Not All Who Wander Are Lost on Amazon as well? That is one of my favorite quotes 🙂
    Congratulations on submitting everything!!! I know that has to be the best feeling.
    PS – I am planning to do a “Fall Fashion inspo by my favorite bloggers” post next week. Would you mind if I included you and used one of your fall outfit pictures from one of your recent posts? I would of course link back to you 🙂 If not, no worries! I just wanted to ask! I am a long time reader of yours but I’m very new to blogging myself so I’m pretty sure only my mom and boyfriend read my posts right now anyways 😉

      Hi, Megan!
      Oh, I’m so glad to hear that another girl likes Woodford! : ) We are currently watching Friday Night Lights. I have heard good things about the Haunting of Hill House, but I am SUCH a baby. I can’t watch anything scary/suspenseful!
      Yes, all of the pillow cases are from Amazon! They were so inexpensive and such a good quality. I’m impressed!
      I’d love to be featured in your post! Just let me know what you need from me! : ) Send me a link to your blog, too! I’d love to read it!
      Thanks, Megan! I’m glad to have you as a reader! I hope you have an amazing weekend!!

        Yay, thank you so much! I will just pick a picture from one of your recent posts with a “fall outfit.” If you have one you’d prefer though, just let me know 🙂
        I love Friday Night Lights! My boyfriend and I binge watched it about a year ago – Clear Eyes, Full Hearts, Can’t Lose..sounds like a good marathon mantra 😉
        My blog is If you check it out, let me know what you think! I am still STRUGGLING with all the technical aspects of it so it’s a little amateur haha…but it’s coming along.
        Have an awesome weekend!
