Weekly Menu Plan {22 September}

Hello, friends! Happy new week and happy autumn!!! I was savouring every last drop of summer but am now ready to let go and fully embrace the wonderful autumn season. Our temperatures have dropped and the leaves are beginning to turn. We brought out our autumn decorations this morning and enjoyed a family tradition of "Fall Bingo" during school. Emma had the day off and even joined in the candy corn fun! 

Here is my meal plan for this week:

Monday - Chef salads or sandwiches (not very fall-ish, but I'm working with what we have!)

Tuesday - Cheese Tortellini, garlic bread, salad

Wednesday - Oven BBQ-ed Brisket, potato casserole, green beans

Thursday - Leftovers 

Friday - Rosemary Garlic Chicken, rice, sautéed spinach 

Saturday - Mexican Bean Bake (an oldie but goodie), chips and guacamole 

Sunday - Snack-y supper

What's on your menu this week? I'm linking up with Laura and all the girls over at Menu Plan Monday. Pop on over to see what the others are planning.

Blessings and love. xo

What I Wore

Hello, lovelies! How is your Wednesday going?

I have some fun things to share today. Is your weather cooling down yet? I adore autumn and autumn weather and am looking forward to easing into the cooler temperatures. I have read and heard that we are in for another cold winter in Virginia. So I'm thinking ahead to my winter duds. Last year I kept seeing fleece-lined leggings, but because I'm pretty hot-natured, I didn't know if I would get too hot in them. After the very cold winter that we had in this old and charming, but drafty house, I am all in favor of investing in the fleece-lined anything!

So here are some cute options from . . .

These maxi skirts from look so cute (I especially love the one on the far right!) . . .

These cute things are from (only for a limited time) . . .

And check out these No Show socks! Perfect, since we're thinking of putting away the flip flops and getting out the flats! From . . . 

I hope you enjoy the rest of your week.
