Thinking About: Comparison has been a struggle for this week. Normally this isn't a big issue for me, but I've been thinking about it a lot lately. Sam and I spent nearly our entire eating out budget by the 6th of this month, when the month had barely even started! We've been doing really well with eating at home since then, but it seems like everyone on Facebook is eating out and posting loads of photos and then I get jealous. Partly I'm mad at myself for spending so much money in a short period of time, but the other part of me is looking at all these photos and wondering how people can afford to eat out so much. Sam has pointed out to me that we don't know what other people's lives are really like. They could be thousands of dollars of debt for all I know. I keep trying to remind myself of this, and not get caught up in the comparison game.
Reading: Earlier this week I read Taken by Tuesday. I've read the other books in the series and this was a quick and fun read.
Loving: Everything pumpkin! I mentioned last week all the pumpkin recipes we had planned, and I made them all! Yesterday, we had pumpkin french toast for breakfast and pumpkin quesadillas for dinner. It was a perfect pumpkin day! I went to Aldi's to stock up on pumpkin. I bought 12 cans. Sam seems to think that was an unreasonable amount. I disagree.
Thankful For: Modern medicine! I've had a migraine on and off since Sunday last week and it's been just awful! I told Sam on Thursday that if I had another migraine then I would go to my Dr for migraine shots. I really don't like shots or needles, so obviously the pain was bad for me to willingly ask for shots! On Friday I went to bed at 8:00 pm and didn't wake up until 11:00 am. Finn is always super cuddly when I'm not feeling well, and Friday was no exception.
Eating: We had so many delicious recipes this week! Sam and I both loved Arugula Bacon Pizza, loosely based off this Barefoot Contessa recipe.
Wearing: Nail polish! I go through phases of wearing nail polish and then not wearing it. Shades of green and orange/coral are my go-to colors.
Photographing: My sweet Finn, my favorite subject!
