I can’t believe we’re headed into the second full week of September, my oldest turns 13 this month! I can’t even believe that!!
I took advantage of some of the Labor Day Sales last weekend and picked up a couple of things for the house as well as a few clothing items for me and Mr.JMM.
I needed some new mixing bowls and Crate & Barrel always has some great ones plus they had 15% off for the Holiday weekend. I picked up this set three bowls for $39.95 and an additional 15% off . These are called the Carter Bowls and you can find them here.
They’re nice deep bowls which will be perfect when I’m baking or need a larger bowl for rising dough.
I also ordered a new 13×9 baking dish because after my kitchen clean out I’m down to one and once Thanksgiving rolls around that just won’t do. I have the two pie plates and the smaller baking dish in the set and Mr.JMM had ordered this exact one for me last Christmas but it came broken and when he reordered it the same thing happened. So I told him to return it and get the credit and I waited a while for them to sell through that batch hoping it was just a fluke and I could eventually order my pan. I finally did last weekend and it arrived in perfect condition! I was actually impressed with how it was wrapped and so grateful I finally had the last piece in the set and Mr.JMM was thrilled I finally got my Christmas gift! Haha! I would love a loaf pan but I haven’t seen one from this designer. These are on sale and a little pricier but they’re investment pieces which you will have for years. The food cooks/bakes beautifully in these pans and they clean up so nicely, you can find it here.
I was in need of some Fall sweaters and always love the quality of LLBean . They were doing 25% off for Labor Day so I picked up a couple sweaters for me and some flannel shirts for Mr. JMM. If you have a man in your life these mens flannels from Bean are AMAZING!! They make great Christmas gifts too!! The two I always buy for Mr,JMM are here and here.
They always have a variety of sizes and also have flannels for kids, I had ordered Trever some when we were back to school shopping. You can find them here.
I ordered a few really cute sweaters for myself too, in the winter I pretty much live in sweaters and Uggs which is why I could never be a fashion blogger. Haha!
One favorite that I ordered were these Marled Cotton Ragg Sweaters one of the colors are on sale right now too! Let me tell you these are soft. cozy and not in any way itchy!! This is what I call a perfect sweater!! I ordered it in the Black and Natural and as I type this I’m considering ordering the Dark Indigo which is the color on sale.
Every year I also order a new Black Cashmere Long Sleeve Crew Neck Sweater, these are probably my all time favorite sweater from Bean. The boys love hugging me in these because they’re so soft. This is a little more of an investment piece but if you catch one of their sales it ends up being a great deal!
Saturday evening we did our usual pizza night and watched a movie with the boys we watched Goosebumps the Movie with Jack Black. It was a really cute Halloween type kids movie.
On Sunday we took a trip to HomeGoods in search of an entry-way table, I thought I had found the perfect one but when it arrived in Friday it ended up being much bigger than I had wanted width wise. Thankfully it looks beautiful in Mr.JMM’s office so it worked out because he needed something else in that space. The table search ended up being a bust we didn’t find anything we liked so I asked Mr.JMM to make me a custom piece for the entryway and of course he said yes. Yay! I can’t wait to design what I want and then have him build it, those pieces always mean so much more to me.
While I was there I did pick up some dog toys for the pups, they always have the best prices on dog toys.
Sunday afternoon I weeded my gardens and then relaxed with my book for a little while before making dinner and getting ready for another week. No four-day weeks this time, this will be our first official five-day week of this school year. I hope everyone has a wonderful week!
Keep an eye out for the Movie Room post which is scheduled to go up on Wednesday.
