Okay, so after last week’s post on attempting a behavior chart with my girls, I guess I was a little over-ambitious. During the entire week of trying to get all ten stars in one day, they never did it, not even one day. We still celebrated with a trip to the toy store at the end of the week, to celebrate getting so many stars on our chart. I didn’t want them to feel too defeated. The thing is, it never seemed to even bother them, that day-by-day, they weren’t filing in all of their stars. So, the chart is being re-done. We’ll still use stars, but will narrow down the tasks to about five a day, to increase their chance of filling them all in for the day. I’m also going to give them small incentives (a sticker, stamp, etc.), as positive reinforcement, during the day, like I usually do anyway. Here’s hoping this one works a little bit better. I’ll keep you updated, next Monday. For more, see these previous How I Do It posts: Discipline, Positive Reinforcement.
I haven’t had as much time to run as consistently as I’d like, so on the days I do get to run, I’ve upped my mileage.

There is just so much I love about fall: college and pro football, the crisp in the air, pumpkin and caramel flavored everything, candy everywhere for Halloween, but most of all my husband and I both have October birthdays!”

I loved reading all of your favorite things about Fall!
If you’re a local reader, you’re in for a treat! Another fun giveaway, to a fun event I’m attending here in Charlotte, will be announced tomorrow! Stay tuned!
Okay, if you’re a long time follower, you’ll know I’ve always raved about the Nest Candles. They have the best scents for the holidays, hands down. To me, they’re worth every penny, because as soon as I smell the Pumpkin Chai one, I’m set for Fall, and the Holiday candle at Christmas, is by far my favorite scent ever. Neiman Marcus always waits until right before October, to start carrying it online. And now, they offer free shipping and free returns, always!
Love that this is like two, for the price of one. The scarf is detachable.
I’ve been in search of a fun pair of printed jeans, without an expensive price tag.
They’re on sale too. Not too out there, but just enough to spruce up a Fall outfit!
Might as well pull the sweater and pants together, with these Tory Burch Metallic Revas, that just made their debut this past week.
