The Mail Edition

This week has been something else. Scott put in some crazy, super long hours (think 16-18 hour days). That meant most of the week I was flying solo with Marcus and Julia. There were some very overwhelming moments, some moments where I found patience I didn't even know I had, and we all managed to make it out alive. The weekend is finally here and it has never looked so good.

On with the highlights!
Mail was on point yesterday. It's rare I take a few minutes for myself these days (there are not enough hours in the day for such luxuries), but yesterday's mail gave me the opportunity to have a little 'me' time. 

1. My first Stitch Fix arrived! These days the idea of shopping in stores makes me shudder. I loved the idea of the mall coming to me, and I had fun trying on the items in the comfort of my home. 
I plan to do a more detailed post on my first experiences and all the pieces next week. Spoiler alert: my wardrobe has grown. 

2. My Fall Blog Exchange box arrived! My partner, Andrea, nailed it

A full reveal will be up next week.

3. Chucks!
Thanks to pregnancy my feet have grown and I was in dire need of new kicks. These dandies came in the mail and I instantly fell in love. Sadly, they're a tad too big, so they'll have to be exchanged for a smaller size before I can actually enjoy them. 

4. This has absolutely nothing to do with the mail... But, GO ROYALS! Just one more win and they clench the ALCS and head to the World Series. 
Here's to hoping the Boys in Blue can seal the deal with today's game.

5. Our weekend is full of Halloween fun. On the agenda, a Trunk or Treat and RISE of the Jack o' Lanterns! 
This is from RISE, last year. Easily my favorite display.
There's no place like home!
In case you missed last year's post - RISE is a display of 5,000 (!!!) carved pumpkins. And, it is AH-MAY-ZING. I can't wait to see what incredible artwork -in the form of jack o'lanterns- will be on display this year!

Have a great weekend!
