OHMYGOODNESS!!!! IT'S MY FAVORITE MONTH! IT'S FINALLY FALL!!
*goes to light leaf/cinnamon/pumpkin/apple orchard/yourkid'sdirtybackpack?/waffle scented candle*
I'M SO HAPPY!!
I have been holding in my autumnal enthusiasm for as long as I could stand. I've ordered a new sweatshirt and it's only a matter of time before I start making these and these and oh yes, definitely these.
I am really sorry if you find this exuberance obnoxious, but if you will bear with me I promise to resist rolling my eyes when you wear flip-flops in March. Deal?
I looked in the mirror a few minutes ago and it was really...hazy. This was odd because I had just cleaned said mirror less than twenty-four hours prior to this realization. Then the horrible thought occurred to me that perhaps it was my eyes that were hazy and not the mirror itself. I looked closer. “It does not look dirty…,” I mentally noted. "Oh gosh, I have an eye disease. I should start frantically googling eye diseases to see how soon I will meet my imminent end. No, wait...we do not go there. Been there before. Cried over my own imaginary funeral. Angrily thought of Mr. Pedantic remarrying. Composed a hit list of his possible replacement wives. Not going back. We are above that nonsense.”
Now I am writing this post and still wondering if I am going blind. If so, it is likely because I do not clean my makeup brushes. Oops. No judgement please, I am far too busy insta-storying.
Can I tell you another lil’ secret? I re-watch all my own stories, sometimes multiple times, and often with Mr. Pedantic. It makes me feel like I am on television. I like to call it, "The Ashlyn Show." My six-year-old self who used to pretend like she was on Martha Stewart during bath time would be very impressed at how far I have come.
Speaking of that domestic goddess... Dear Martha, how how do you do it? “With three assistants and a driver, that’s how, you peasant.” Please, just stop.
This is and always will be my fall drink.
I picked up a tiny travel bottle of this body mist a couple weeks ago and I have just started using it over the past several days. Oh my goodness, I wish I could get this scent in perfume because I LOVE IT!
News that only five of you care about: I am finally dying my hair. Like, I made the appointment. It is on the calendar and I am pretty freaking excited because I have talked about taking the plunge every fall for the past six years and chickened out. This year, I was determined to be brave and just do the darn thing. So…pictures soon.
I have suddenly discovered that I very much need a concrete espresso maker. My Christmas list may be a bit more eccentric this year. And definitely impractical, but I’m a millennial so…what did you expect?
I think I am going to cry. This is the theme park of my dreams.
I heard the words “designer fruit” this week and it made me a little nauseas. I will take my grapes grape-flavored, thankyouverymuch. I just know that this craziness goes back to unicorns somehow.
What are you up to this weekend? We are taking it easy for the first time in a very long while and I am looking forward to some much needed home time. Mostly so I can binge watch these adorable children say very adorable things while I continue to battle against the ever-constant stream of laundry.
