3. I want to live in these pants.

4. I have watched a lot of Netflix in my hotel room. I liked the Guernsey Literary & Potato Peel Society movie, but I still think the book is better. Worth watching though. I am also rewatching Parenthood because why not? It’s so good!

5. Gotta try these cookies!

6. Are you ready for pumpkin? I am already seeing it everywhere. Shouldn’t it be a thing like the don’t wear white until after Labor Day? Don’t eat pumpkin until after Labor Day? Although, I don’t see the problem with wearing white after Labor Day, just saying:)
