Jim and I went on a date night a couple of weeks ago and saw The Hundred Foot Journey. It’s a fun foodie movie. We enjoyed it. It reminded me of some of the independent films we’ve watched on Netflix. It also made me want to go to France. Be sure to have Indian food either before or after. Or during, if you wait and catch it on video in a few months.
Back in the spring, I stumbled on the site, Get Your Pretty On. Alison was launching her first 21 Day Fashion Challenge. I signed up on a whim and I’m so glad I did! I’ve since done her summer challenge and I’m signed up for the fall one too.
Alison sends a shopping list of items and follows that up with 21 days of outfit ideas that combine those items.
It’s like the Weekly Meal Plans and grocery lists for clothes! Since I hate to shop, this is perfect for me. There are options for every price range. Lots of people even hit up thrift stores for various finds, as well as sharing sale prices (the private Facebook group for these challenges are wonderful!).
Want to join me? Click here to register. Regular registration is open through Oct. 2 and the shopping list comes out on Oct. 3. The outfit ideas will be sent each day Oct. 12 – Nov. 1. It’s going to be a lot of fun! I love having the outfits planned out for me, with ideas that I can rotate through the rest of the season.
I’ve been spending a lot of time in the car driving lately. Our new school routine involves classes that the kids take two days a week. Except they each go on opposite days, so that means I’m driving four days a week. Two 80-90 minute round trips each day. Yes, that’s about 2 1/2 – 3 hours in the car each day.
To pass the time, I listen to podcasts. I like a few business type ones, but that can get old after a while. Lately, I’ve been bingeing on The Joy the Baker Podcast. It’s like chatting with old friends. Except I don’t know these ladies and I’m not chatting, just listening. But it passes the time and it’s entertaining.
I’d love to find some more good podcasts to listen to. If you’ve got recommendations, let me know!

Thanks for the tips! That movie is going on my “see in 3 months list,” and I signed up for the fashion challenge. My personal challenge is not to buy new clothes this season (except for new boots) but to hopefully put together what I have in a better way!

I highly recommend Andy Stanley podcasts! You can find them at YourMove.is or the Your Move app. There they have the best ones. But once you go through all those, they tend to repeat them so I prefer to go to the church’s website (northpoint.org). Guardrails is a great one. I also like Just Ask It and the Comparison Trap. I’ll check out your tips! Thanks for sharing them.
Thanks! I think I have Andy Stanley in my list, but I haven’t listened to one yet. Good to know they’re good! I’ll look up the others too.
I joined the Style Me Pretty Challenge based on your recommendation! Looking forward to some new ideas!
The Hundred Foot Journey was really good. I rarely re-watch movies, but that’s one I’d like to add to my collection. For podcasts, I like Elise Gets Crafty and anything from NPR.
Elise Gets Crafty looks like a great one! Thanks for the recommendation.
Stuff You Missed in History Class is a great podcast. I’m a history buff and I still learn quite a bit!
Thanks. I’ll check that one out.
