It’s the penultimate month of 2020. Wild! It’s officially the holiday season, too, which is making me very happy. I’m really excited to share the joy of this time of year with our little Sader Tot 🙂

Fall leaves

Here’s what’s going on in my life this month.

Current books I just finished Etched in Sand and whew was it intense. Not a light read, but very moving. I’m onto one fiction book: Dear to Me and one nonfiction book: Midwife: An Adventure. Always reading about the Amish and midwifery, haha.

Current laugh When Jimmy and I were out last weekend we were in a store and I heard someone say “Ugh, when did boot cut jeans come back in style?” and I was so embarrassed… I’ve been wearing bootcut jeans for the past ten years, LOL.

Current baked good Sourdough bread. I’m back on the sourdough train and loving it!

Current beauty product Nail strips. I don’t know if I can go back to regular nail polish now! The fact that I don’t have to wait for my nails to dry is a game-changer.

Current obsession Crafting for Christmas. I’m so excited to decorate this year! Jimmy and I are butting heads on when we should decorate, though. He wants to wait until after Thanksgiving and I was ready at midnight on October 31st. What’s your take?

Current fact Amazon now delivers Siberian huskies 😉

Current food I made tofu for the first time in years today. Who am I?! I like to marinate it in soy sauce, honey, garlic, and spices and then bake it at 400 degrees until it’s crispy.

Current excitement My sister is having her anatomy scan on Friday!

Current cuteness Sadie all bundled up for cold weather. Also, why does she suddenly look all grown up?!

Current drink We just opened a bag of this coffee. I’m not much of a dark roast gal, but Jimmy loves it so we switch between light and dark roasts!

Current question What is one thing bringing you joy lately?

A look back…

Some very awesome representatives from Aeropostale contacted me about their new line, LIVE LOVE DREAM. LIVE LOVE DREAM is a collection of active and lounge clothing that’s stylish but comfortable.


I was sent a gift card to choose some clothes from the website to try out and feature on my blog.

I was really excited to order and try out the clothes and take pictures for this blog post.

Then I had my wisdom teeth removed. Then I had some complications (more on that in another post). You really don’t want to see my puffy face right now. So, I recruited Hannah to be my LIVE LOVE DREAM model (yes, we both love being able to share clothes)!

So, without further ado, here’s a peek at some LIVE LOVE DREAM clothing in action!

Hannah is wearing the mesh popover active sweatshirt in black.

Up next is the long sleeve popover yoga shirt in aquatic blue with the logo lounge flip flops in lemon zest.

Hannah’s comments: “This shirt if my favorite because it’s so airy and I can wear it out or while working out.” “The flip flops are cute and so bright!”

Last but not least is the seamless racerback sports bra in pink pulse.
