I hope you all had a great weekend. Here in Florida the weather finally cooled off just a little & now it actually feels like fall. Well, at least to us. (Yes, 75 degrees is a “cool” day here!)
We celebrated by turning off the A/C for the first time in about 8 months, opening up all the doors and windows, and putting up some Halloween decorations, which thrilled Princess to no end. She is a BIG fan of Halloween, and has literally been talking about her costume for months now. (After shopping around and comparing prices, I decided it will be cheaper to make it myself. I’ll keep you posted on how that goes!)
As far as shopping, I made just one very tiny trip to CVS.
Here is what I got:
