Nesting on this rainy October Sunday.
It has been a busy few weeks between our older son’s 7th birthday, school functions and all the Halloween things.
Rick and I always swore we would never let the kids have video games. Well for lucky number 7, we gifted our oldest a PlayStation 5. To see the expression on his face and the tears of joy when he opened it was totally worth it. Throughout the week, I found myself sitting down on the couch with him playing Madden and The Show. I enjoyed getting a friendly competition going and spending time with my son and sharing his love of sports. I learned a very important lesson this week. It doesn’t always have to be all or nothing. I am like this with alot of things in life. Either being super strict with my eating or bingeing, really trying to save money or spending frivolously. Things don’t always have to be one extreme or the other. We can set healthy boundaries and enjoy our guilty pleasures. So my inspiration to you this week is to incorporate a healthy balance!
We had a Halloween party last night and the kids had a blast. But I think Rick and I had more fun. Clearly I am rooting for Team Swelce and am going to be devastated if this doesn’t end all too well.

What I’m Watching
If you’re looking for a suspenseful series, may I suggest Fall of The House Of Usher (currently on Netflix)? Soooo good especially if you’re a fan of Mike Flanagan’s other works like The Haunting of Hill House and The Haunting of Bly Manor.
I need to catch up on The Golden Bachelor and also Real Housewives of New York City.
What I’m Reading
I just started The Only One Left by Riley Sager. He’s one of my favorite thriller authors.
I’ve got more fall book recommendations here.
Here are some of my favorite things I found on the internet throughout the week:
