We’re off to Carlton Landing for this Labor Day weekend for the first time since mid-July. I’m crossing my fingers that it’ll be cooler. Rita and her family are coming down for the pop-up shops, too — they’re such a fun family to hang out with.  I’m planning on paddleboarding, napping, and eating pie. Not necessarily in that order.

TRADER JOE’S WHEEEEE!

OKC peeps: Trader Joe’s opens September 23rd and I cannot wait! What are your favorites?

WOMEN’S CLOTHES SIZING IS WEIRD.

Ever been confused about why you’re a 12 in some stores, a 10 or a 14 or 8 or 16 in others? This video explains so much and gives a ton of perspective. Did you realize the current standards of womens’ sizes were based off of a survey of poor and malnourished women?

STOP APOLOGIZING

I realized I should stop apologizing for how “dirty/messy” my house was one day when Jude had a friend over and I heard “Oh, please excuse the mess…” come out of his mouth. NOPE. STOP IT.

WHO’D HAVE THOUGHT THE TSA COULD BE SO FUNNY?

I haven’t been a huge fan of the TSA if I’m being totally honest but I have to say their Instagram account is hilarious and informative. Now can we please leave our shoes on already? ‘Cause those floors be nasty.
