Things I’m Loving Lately 17

Happy Monday friends!  I hope your weekend was amazing.

The hubs and I actually took a totally unplanned day trip to Charleston yesterday!  I guess my lack of weekend plans payed off. We even got to see some great views of fall color in the mountains from the plane too.  You might have caught a few pictures on Instagram yesterday, but I’ll share more of our adventure in tomorrows post.

I’ve been featuring postive, happy things in my life once a month for over a year now… so why stop now?!  It’s time for another Things I’m Loving Lately!

Things I’m Loving Lately 17


I’ve hit the grape jackpot.  I keep getting these HUGE grapes that look like they have seeds, but they don’t.  They are sweet little gems of fruity goodness.  I can’t get enough!



Of course, I love my goddaughter every day, but I’ve been able to spend some good time with her recently.  I feel so blessed to have her in my life.  Her Mom Melanie is still in the hospital fighting Leukemia, so I am taking her Trick or Treating this weekend.  I’m more than stoked.  Should I dress up too?  So many questions!


New Friends!

I had such a great time at Type A connecting with bloggers!  I found some girls I have a lot in common with and I’m loving these new friendships!

Type A Conference

I’m also loving outtakes for the 80’s party… taking a selfie in the elevator probably wasn’t the wisest idea 🙂  Jen— I’m so sorry I cut you off!

Hair Deep Conditioner

I had honestly gotten a little lazy about deep conditioning my hair and I noticed the other day it seemed dryer than normal.  I’ve been getting back in the habit of using one of my favorite all time hair products, Aveda Damage Remedy Intensive Restructuring Treatment and I can really tell a difference.  This stuff is pricey, but it works! <—amazon link


Gilmore Girls on Netflix

Did y’all here that Netflix is picking up the Gilmore Girls for a revival.  I was a huge fan of the show and hated the way they ended it.  I can’t think of a better show to bring back.  Loving this!  Between Gilmore Girls and the Full House reunion I’m going to have to get a Netflix subscription.

Now if someone tells me Dawson’s Creek is coming back my head might explode 🙂

Your turn!

    You absolutely need to dress up for Halloween! We do a family costume every year and it is so much fun!!

      I wish I would have planned better! She got her costume before we got involved!

    I love this post, and that 80s elevator photo is so hilarious! So, so much fun. And your goddaughter is just precious. She’s lucky to have you in her life. So sweet!

      I know! I want to wear 80’s clothes all the time 🙂

  3. I loved Charleston when my sister and I took our sister trip there last year!

    I love Halloween and miss taking the kids trick or treat! Now we sit in the drive way in our chairs with adult beverages and hand out treats to the kids, it is always a fun time!

    • JulieWunder October 29, 2015 at 6:14 pm - Reply

      haha!! Now THAT sounds like fun! I like the way you think 🙂

    You should definitely dress up, she will appreciate it and make for some good photos and memories

    • JulieWunder October 29, 2015 at 6:13 pm - Reply

      That’s very true! I’ll have to see if I can make it happen!

    Yayyy for Gilmore Girls! I’m super excited for the revival (and also hated how it ended–I discovered the series late in college, but yay <3!)!

    P.S. Those grapes look like they're on steroids. :O

  7. Leslie @ flora foodie October 26, 2015 at 7:41 pm - Reply I did NOT hear that Gilmore Girls is coming back and I am a ridiculously huge fan. Hooraaaaaahhh! Also, I am totally on the hunt for a great deep conditioner so thanks for that too 🙂

    • JulieWunder October 29, 2015 at 6:09 pm - Reply

      I’m so excited too… probably more excited than I should admit 🙂

    I think that it is great that you will be taking your goddaughter trick
    or treating .I suggest that you ask her if she would like for you to
    dress up too. She might enjoy helping you get dressed-up as you
    help her get dressed-up too.

    Oh a flight around to look at all the leaves would be amazing! I bet that was an awesome trip!
    Loving all the things you are loving lately! I used to love Gilmore girls! The other night it was late and I couldn’t sleep so I turned on Netflix and started watching Hart of Dixie, OMG so cute, I can’t believe I never knew about that show before. If you like Gilmore, you should check that one out too. Before I knew it, 3 episodes in and at 3am I realized I had a problem and forced myself to turn it off so I could sleep, LOL I have a love hate relationship with netflix for that reason:)

    • JulieWunder October 29, 2015 at 6:06 pm - Reply

      I’ve never heard of Heart of Dixie– I’ll have to check it out! Thanks!

    I’ve been loving all of the grapes at the farmer’s market! So many samples 😉

  11. Rachel @ October 26, 2015 at 12:49 pm - Reply

    I heard about the new Gilmore Girls but haven’t watched it yet! Excited to curl up with a cup of coffee this weekend and watch!! And grapes are one of my favorites this month too!! 🙂

    My mom loves Aveda products, and I’ve heard great things! Glad you had a nice time in Charleston 🙂

    I bought the BIGGEST grapes while in Italy, sadly they were seeded. Those grapes look SO yummy!

    • JulieWunder October 29, 2015 at 6:04 pm - Reply

      Ohhh… I’m sure they were good too though! I checked the bag three times b/c I thought these MUST be seeded, there were that big.

    Absolutely you should dress up and share the pics after you take a ton or two of them!!?

    • JulieWunder October 29, 2015 at 6:02 pm - Reply

      Haha! I’m going to have to come up with something!

  15. Julie October 26, 2015 at 9:15 am - Reply

    I hear Charleston is beautiful!! And I say dress up for trick or treating :).

    • JulieWunder October 26, 2015 at 9:21 am - Reply

      Yes! I’ve always been a big Charleston fan! That’s three dress up votes– I need an outfit!

    You are so sweet to take your Goddaughter trick or treating! You should definitely dress up! I love Halloween so much and I can’t wait until Matilda is a little older can really appreciate it!

    • JulieWunder October 26, 2015 at 9:08 am - Reply

      That’s two for dressing up! I need to get on it!
      I bet Matilda is sooo cute in a Halloween outfit 🙂

  17. I love Charleston! Such a great walking around, running and eating town maybe not in that order! 🙂 Looks like a fun weekend

    So pumped for the GG revival! I don’t know if you’ve heard of Gilmore Guys Podcast but it’s great…they have been talking about this for a while now so I’m excited. And I hope the Fuller House isn’t a letdown like Girl Meets World! Happy Monday!

    • JulieWunder October 26, 2015 at 8:45 am - Reply

      I know! GMW was not that great 🙁 I hope they do better with these too!

    It makes me really sad that your dear friend is still battling leukemia & her daughter has to watch. I wish there were something I could do to make this pain & sadness go away. I’ll continue praying as always!

    • JulieWunder October 26, 2015 at 8:45 am - Reply

      I know. It’s terrible. Leukemia is cruel.
      Thank you for the prayers– I know she appreciates them.

    we are going to the mountains Thursday to see some color…yeah you should dress up and go with the goddaughter…what I am loving are my fifth grade guys and how in tune to The Word they are…also we have had three rainouts this season for soccer (not loving that), my two of my kids coaches worked feverishly to make up the games…after tomorrow (weather permitting again), Caleb would have made up all three, Michael 2, Jonathan 1….not bad for an 8 week season with three rainouts

    • JulieWunder October 26, 2015 at 8:44 am - Reply

      Not bad at all! Wish it wasn’t raining now! I think it’s going to be a treadmill day 🙁
      The color here is perfect now– you should love your trip.

    Woohoo for a sporadic weekend trip and Gilmore Girls on Netflix!!!! <3

    HOLY GRAPES BATMAN. I’m sorry that Melanie is still having a rough go of it—thinking about you all.
    Gilmore Girls totally screams fall to me. I don’t care that they show the other seasons on the show. I associate it with fall!

    • JulieWunder October 26, 2015 at 8:42 am - Reply

      I can def understand that! It’s the setting– I think.
      Thanks for the thoughts! She needs them!

    I’m loving the fall colors too. In the past three days, the color has turned from “so so”, to fabulous! We had family down from MI for an Autumn visit and we had such a great time just driving around and finding awesome photo ops. The colors are really pretty this year, but they are so much more beautiful when you share them with family and friends!

    • JulieWunder October 26, 2015 at 8:41 am - Reply

      It has!! Seems to have come out of no wear! I hope the rain doesn’t knock them all down.
