around here it's finally getting a bit chilly (which, as I understand, is not the same as "chilly") in other parts of the world. But hey! Seasons! (Sort of!) We'll take it.
around here Paul and I were just chatting that Thanksgiving is in less than two weeks...how can that be? What on earth are we going to serve for dinner?
around here Ellerie and I picked up a baby animal calendar from the Target dollar spot. She legit squeals everytime she enters her room and sees it. She has kissed that baby panda 15 times and only ripped it off the wall twice, so that's a win.
around here Ellerie's REAL favorite thing (more than baby pandas) is pizza dough. She's obsessed. I made dough on Wednesday at 1pm and from then until bedtime all we talked about was "go!!!!" (dough) and the object of the day was to open up that (not heated) oven and play with her dough. If you haven't seen it, this video from a few weeks ago perfectly captures my life on Wednesday. No complaints though - these are the exact moments that I dreamed about when I was deep in the newborn haze. I can't even really think about it without feeling like sobbing (in a good way).
around here I figured out what I'm going to do for my 30th birthday project. It's something different enough to be interesting, but also just normal enough to make sense and I think it will be good for both me and the blog. We've got a long way to go until February, but it's fun to have a plan.
around here the knitting addiction is serious and intense. After my cowl I decided to finally (finally) dive into a real sweater and I started with Jane Richmond's Oatmeal Pullover. I have learned so much about knitting (and life, obviously) from the three days I have spent working on this sweater. I'm also already gearing up for sweater number two (how gorgeous is this?!). I feel like my winter capsule wardrobe will be 36 sweaters and no pants. And then I'll remember that I live in San Diego.
around here we are lucky enough to have a second weekend in a row together. I'm thrilled. There might be donuts. For sure there will be Bloody Mary's.
