October Favorites 2017

Guys, I know you’ve all been wondering what I’ve been obsessed with lately… So, here it is!!Rose Water
I’ve talked about rose water on here previously, but I’m still super obsessed. Why did it take me so long to get on the rose water train?! I feel like a luxurious queen or something when I spray my face with rose water. I use it after I wash my face and before I moisturize.

Orange + Bergamot oil
Everyone and their mother is on the essential oil bandwagon! They can be used for cleaning, grooming, to promote health, OR to make your house smell good! These two essential oils smell great! I’ve been really into defusing them!

Pumpkins
Tis’ the season, right? This October we bought a selection of pumpkins and I’ve been obsessed with them. I LOVE the heirloom pink, gray, and green pumpkins the best! We bought our pumpkins from KC’s Produce and Glad Tidings Church.

Black Cat
I talked about this on instagram, but if you haven’t heard, Black was sick for a few weeks in August. He had 2 extended stays at our local vet’s office and one trip to the small animal emergency room in Gainesville. He got sick again in September, and after a week stay in the cat hospital, he ended up having surgery. Black Cat is home and recovering well! If you’re local and looking for a great vet, we highly recommend Dr. Hagler at Columbia Animal Hospital! He and his staff took such wonderful care of Black Cat!

Station Eleven by Emily St. John Mandel
This month’s book club pick has been great! Station Eleven follows 3 characters after a devastating flu plague hits America. It’s an interesting and easy read. I highly recommend it!

Good Christian Fun Podcast
This podcast is what I’ve been waiting for. Hosts, Kevin and Caroline along with a different guest each week, discuss various aspects of Christian pop culture. It’s super hilarious and only about 10% offensive. If you were a youth group queen like myself, I suggest you give this one a listen. I super suggest you listen to the Hell House episode because one of my favorite humans, MeLissa, was the guest!

Stranger Things Season 2
Whew, guys. Netflix is really kicking it out of the park with some of their original series. Ray and I both loved season 1,  season 2 did not disappoint! I feel like everyone in America has seen and loved Stranger Things, so I don’t think I need to explain the premise… but if you haven’t, give it a chance! It’s nostalgic, smart, funny, a little scary, and has a lot of heart.

Mindhunters
Mindhunters is a new netflix original that follows FBI agents in the 70’s on the path of profiling serial killers. Truthfully, this show started off a little slow and it didn’t follow the format I was expecting… but it was fascinating. The show is based off the book of the same title authored real-life FBI agent, John Douglas.
