Feeling Like Fall

Morning, friends! How have you been? 

I took it easy over the weekend and just relaxed and had plenty of time away from all-things-electronic. It was nice. 

Last night, it really started to feel like fall to me after quite the heat wave this weekend. It was 85 on Sunday! When I got home from work, I took Beans on a 1.5 mile walk. Lately, walks have been my favorite form of fitness and it kills two birds with one stone: I get a workout and Beans gets one too.

He has been doing so great lately, really strong since his surgery 3 months ago. I’m so impressed by his recovery! 

After our walk, I made a hearty soup for dinner. I made this Chipotle Chicken & Corn Chowder

Oh man, was it good! I love soups that are so hearty that they’re a full meal. I think I want to make it my goal to make a soup from scratch every other week this fall and winter. Just too good! And now I have tons of leftovers for lunch too. 

 I’m also totally digging my simple fall centerpiece.

After dinner, I finally got around to painting my nails. I haven’t in forever. Fall colors are my favorite.

Maroon Nails

This is “Shearling Darling” by Essie. It’s maroon but after 2 coats, it almost looks black… Unfortunately, it just would not dry so I went to bed and got sheet indents all over them :( Lame. 

Have a happy Tuesday!

Questions for You: 

  • Any great soup recipes? 
  • What’s the last color you painted your nails?

Happy Monday! How ya’ll doin’?  My weekend was low-key and rejuvenating. Friday we went out on our first real date in like 2 months. Thai food yum!
