Happy Friday!

This weekend is the Chicago Marathon, which Mike, my roommate, and a couple other friends are running, so I'm looking forward to cheering them on! With my hot coffee, cozy clothes, and intact knees. I was tempted to sign up for it back in the Spring, but can say with 100% certainty that I am very, very glad that I didn't. I'm so looking forward to being on the sidelines and watching them all complete such a big accomplishment! 

I finally finished The Girl On The Train, just in time to see the movie! I was quite surprised by the ending and really enjoyed the book, overall. I downloaded The Woman in Cabin 10 and started that one last night. I'm only a couple chapters in, but can already see why so many people have enjoyed it.

I had some things to return to the mall yesterday, so I popped into Zara and picked up this open-front cardigan. It's so cozy and soft - definitely going to be a staple this season

I've gotten so many questions about what I use to make my vanilla lattes at home. If you're interested, here are the items:



I pour about a teaspoon of vanilla syrup into my mug, brew the shot of espresso (decaf or full caff), and froth vanilla almond milk in the frother. I googled a simple vanilla latte recipe to find the proper measurements, but now I just eyeball it. My roommate has had this equipment for a couple years now, which has me wondering why I wasn't taking advantage of it that whole time! 

 Hope you have a wonderful weekend!
