I never had shoes like this, but I wanted something different, so I got these today:
Cute sneakers, I hope they're as comfy as they portray:

On Thursday I had to return my car as the lease had come to an end. Whilst in the showroom we had a look at a very nice Kia Niro hybrid SUV. 2 hours later and we were signing on the dotted line to swap Mrs B's car for the Rio. Should be delivered at the end of the month.
Two dresses and a skirt for back to school.
Tickets to a wine tasting, night at B&B for hub's bday
DH and I both had to buy new clothes for school. Both of us had gained weight last year, but we didn't actually outgrow clothes until this summer.
What can I say . . . we enjoy cooking and eating.

I didn't buy too many new school clothes but I probably will go shopping mid-fall. I did order a pair of navy Sketchers and got a new comfy pair of Asics sneakers!! I got some cash from my classroom budget and got the kiddos some new activities from Target and Toys R Us.

Not exactly a purchase, but we had 5 dead ash trees taken down yesterday. Sad to see them go, but 70 foot tall dead trees aren't exactly safe to have around.
Luckily, we have about 100 more trees in the yard!
Paint! After 13 samples I finally picked the "right" shade of grey for my kitchen, laundry, and bathroom cabinets.

Only 13, I thought there were 50 shades of grey
That's hilarious, blazer!

Picked up the new car yesterday. Very nice and extremely quiet. Hoping to get 70+ mpg out of it.
Nice, enjoy blazer!!
It is an automatic, the first I have ever owned. 24 hours in and it does feel a bit strange not using my left foot. Plus I keep dropping my hand down to the gear lever (shift). Tomorrow I have to instruct mrs blazer in it. She has never driven an automatic in over 40 years of driving! It might end in divorce, or worse a dent in the car!

Picked up my new glasses yesterday. Stronger prescription for distance and close vision, but the good news is that the "sweet spots" are about the same as my current glasses. It usually takes me several weeks to work up the nerve to wear new glasses because I have a difficult time adjusting.

I got 11 nice, cozy sweaters from Express, Free People, & Nordstrom! Also a couple pairs of shoes. Can't wait to wear them!

Picked up a copy of John Green's new book Turtles All The Way Down. I might even have time to read it this month.
We got new phones.
DSS dropped his phone and shattered the screen while we were on vacation in July. He got in line at 4:30am to get the iPhone X. The next day DH and I went to the store so I could put my hands on a couple of different models. I decided on the Samsung Note 8. It's amazing. I had been using the Note 4, which I also loved. DH upgraded from the iPhone 6 to the 8. He likes it, too, but not as much difference between the new and old for him. We each sold our old phones.
