WHERE I WENT 

Wake Forest, NC – We went to visit family the first weekend of September and enjoyed lots of great quality time!

Lake Norman – We headed to the lake mid-September for a fun weekend with Joshua’s parents, two college buddies – their wives and kids. It was truly a fun-filled weekend and so great to catch up with friends + play with their little ones.

MOVIES WATCHED

We actually didn’t watch a single movie this month.  

RECIPES TRIED 

Vanilla Bundt Cake with Maple Glaze

WHERE WE ATE

Shake Shack – I LOVE SHACK SHAKE. END OF STORY. No really – it is sooo good and definitely one of my top indulgent picks! Joshua and I went here for a quick bite before bible study one week and it was perfect!
Village Juice Co.Optimist Hall – from indulgent to one of my favorite healthy spots in Charlotte. Met a girl friend at Optimist Hall for a working lunch and went for an açaí bowl & kombucha – honestly my ideal lunch.

WHAT I WATCHED 

We have officinally finished season one and two of L.A.’s Finest with Gabrielle Union and Jessica Alba. We were honestly hooked – watching a few episodes each week. I have also been watching Siesta Key lots as my guilty pleasure. Love it when I want something mindless. It’s so dramatic and over the top.

FAVORITE FINDS 

perfect green tote for fall
cozy green cowl neck sweater
the best razors for dermaplaning at home
perfect long sleeve t-shirt for the transition between summer to fall 

FITNESS UPDATE

Still doing  FWTFL for the most part – sticking to low carb days and the intermittent fasting. Working out regularly and sharing those every Sunday now to plan out for the week. Shared a full post on workouts as well as what keeps me motivated to work out last week.

Thanks for reading my September Recap. Take a look back a previous monthly recaps here
