Stuff & Things 10/8

:: My dress code at work doesn't allow athletic or casual wear of any kind, and while some people don't follow that (I see so many jeans and tshirts, it's not funny), I do.  But I'm still trying to sneak in some Texas Rangers colors/gear during this postseason run. Good thing their colors -- red and blue -- are easy to find and incorporate.  My boys start their postseason journey today. I am nervous and excited.

:: My fall weekends are quickly filling up. I'm not sure why I'm surprised when my summer disappeared in nearly the same fashion.  Looking ahead, here are a few things I have on my calendar -- hockey games, a football game, fall colors road trip, corn maze, Matt Nathanson concert, a 5K, and a baby shower. And that just gets me through October. Whew.

:: I have decided on a National Novel Writing Month (NaNoWriMo) project and I cannot wait to get started.  I might have to cool the jets on social activities in November so I have time to write.

:: In case you missed it, I'm seeing Taylor Swift tonight. And I devoted an entire blog post to her yesterday.  

:: Looking for an excuse to go shopping for someone else and get something in the mail?  Kristin and Becky are hosting The Great Pumpkin Swap!!  The deadline for signing up is tomorrow.

What's up with you this week?


  1. Thanks for the shoutout!

    Also, in Pennsylvania, you did NOT dress down on Fridays ever. In all my other schools/states, every Friday is jeans/t-shirt day. It was very hard to get used to.

  2. My job has no dress down at all. I miss that even after being here for 8 years!

  3. So jealous you get to see Taylor! I feel the same way about my fall weekends, they just seem to keep filling up and I'm not sure how I'm going to fit everything in.

  4. Luckily, our dress code is pretty relaxed but I always want to dress up more because of it. Weird, right? T Swift - have fun!!! xo Amanda

  5. I'd be more okay seeing the Rangers go forward than the Astros. I don't dislike the Rangers. But, I have to admit that whole Back to the Future 2 thing has me REALLY hoping the Cubs take it this year!

    Sounds like you have a lot of awesome stuff planned for this month!

  6. I swear I don't hold a regular job for the fact that I wouldn't be able to follow a dress code. All comfort. ALL. THE. TIME! And I'm jealous you're going to see Taylor.

  7. Thanks for mentioning the swap! I'm excited to get everyone paired up this weekend, and thanks for joining us again!! :)
