Blogtember : Lately

Day 15: Life Lately

I have been excited about this prompt!
While I am enjoying Blogtember, I feel like I haven't been able to catch up with every one as much. So...here it goes!

Lately....

LOVING: can you guess?! Notice anything new around here?
I am so in LOVE with my new blog design! I have to give all the credit to Thais at House 09 who did a fantastic job, once again! 
The pink! The orange! Floyd up there! I just love it all! 
There may still be a few kinks so bear with us but so far, so good!
Be sure to grab a new button --> over there!

READING: Blogs, duh. And 'Mrs. Lincoln's Dressmaker' from Casey's recommendation.
I just started it but I really like it so far!

WATCHING: I really shouldn't even get started on this.  I still can't wrap my head around Dexter being over and only one more episode of Breaking Bad.  Though for my heart rate and stress level, it's probably a good thing.  Both shows are/were just so, so well written and always kept us guessing.  Thank goodness Homeland starts next weekend, it's the only thing getting me through. 

CRAFTING: All things fall! I whipped this up yesterday and I love it! 
  I haven't gotten the Halloween decorations out quite yet but you better believe my pumpkin cupcake candle is burning away!

RUNNING: I am loving this cooler weather for running. Bethany and I ran 9.75 miles on Saturday morning and it was so nice out and so great to get a long run in!

WISHING: The aztec leggings I finally ordered from Groopdealz would appear in my mailbox very soon, please Mr. Mailman!!

DRINKING: A few weekends ago we went to a beer/wine festival with some friends and discovered Rivertown Brewery's pumpkin ale.  If you think you love a good PSL, you need to get your hands on this beer.  The best way to describe the taste is that's the beer version of a PSL. 
Plus they are a local Cincinnati brewery so we have to support them! 

FLOYD: Don't let that sweet, snoozin face fool you.
  Someone (side eye Floyd) got a few wild hairs yesterday and I spent part of my Sunday morning chasing him around the yard with a stolen (raw) sweet potato in his mouth.

What's going on lately with you?

I love the new design! And I'm glad it's cooling down for running too..this is definitely my favorite time of year! :)

Ahhh, it looks so great! I love the colors and the Floyd cutout. I've been feeling overdue for at least a slightly new look myself, and now I'm feeling inspired to get on that...

And you are seriously a runner girl now - being excited about getting out and doing long runs in amazing weather was what sealed the deal for me :)

Caitlin said...

Love the new blog design (and obsessed with the candy corn banner!! And I'm definitely glad I'll have Homeland to (hopefully) help me get over the sadness of Breaking Bad ending. Though I may almost be ready - these last few episodes have not been easy to watch!

Sarah Tucker said...

I giggled at the sight of you chasing Floyd with a potato in his mouth! Loveeee the new design. That pick of your main fur-man is perfection!

Denise Wertenberger said...

Lindsay loves her Pumpkin brews, too! And Floyd was just running around with the sweet potato to get your full attention. (Which he accomplished, didn't he?). When will we see your new bag?

Katie said...

LOOOVVEEEE the new blog design. That picture of Floyd on your banner is amazing. Looks so so good.

And the burlap candy corn banner turned out great!
