Happy Friday! This is the last weekend before my kids start school virtually. It certainly doesn’t seem like the usual start to the school year. Although this week, the kids did go to school to pick up all of their materials. So we did get a little sense of the realness of it all! The start of the school year is always a good time to get back into routines and I am ready for that! Bring on meal planning (me) and earlier bedtimes (the kids). Anyway, as usual, I am sharing some favorites in home, style and family.

Boys Shared Desk Space
Well, we are in the home stretch of the boys shared desk project. Here was our plan for the boys’ bedroom. Their room is very big so space is not an issue but we did have to do some rearranging to find the best way to use.

We purchased the cabinets from Ikea and this past week, my husband put them together. I will not lie, Ikea assemblies are not our favorite thing! But, these cabinets are really nice, so we are happy with them.
Next, we had to decide on a desk top. Because we needed a top that measured 8 feet long, our options were very limited. Ikea does not make a desk top in that length. So, we went to Lowe’s to consider our options. We settled on a butcher block counter that was already cut to size. Then, my husband used a oil stain to get a darker color top.
One project leads to another and there are still several things to do. We moved the boys’ lockers to the other side of the room, so now we have to patch the wall where the locker was secured. Then, we will add wood shelves above the desk. Hopefully, we can finish all of this work before Monday when the kids start school!
Cozy Fall Styles
These pants are definitely the most like actual sweatpants. The joggers are thick and warm. I love this rust color but they do come in several colors. These pants will be perfect for cool days ahead.
Transitioning to Fall
With the start of back to school coming and the temperatures starting to get a little cooler in the morning, we are thinking about the fall season! This week, I shared two posts all about fall.
On Monday, I rounded up Fall Pillows that are under $!5.
Then, on Wednesday, I brainstormed Fall Activities you can do this year! Fortunately, despite the pandemic, there are still a lot of fall traditions you can still do! It is hard to see summer go, but it makes it easier knowing what a great season fall is!
I was able to find a Target that still had fall things in the Dollar bins! Yay! Hopefully, Target brings out more fall stuff soon.
