Welcome to this week’s Wednesday Watch List, where I share the random things that captured my attention and stole my heart over the past week!

1 – After the past few months, I’ve really come to appreciate the English Tudor home style. We’re working on a project outside of the blog that involves one, and this home from Hendel Homes is a gorgeous representation of the more modern version of the style. So many gorgeous details to appreciate! You can see even more of the interiors here from Vivid Interior Design.
2 – Admittedly, I’ve never been much of a sneakers person. However, these striped sneakers have me convinced I need another pair. Now that my dress code is much more casual than it used to be, my white and neon yellow sneakers aren’t quite cutting it when I’m wearing them with “real” clothes. So I love how cute (and fairly subtle) this pair is!
3 – If you missed out on this chunky knit throw while it was on sale, I found another great look for less that is cheaper and comes in a wider variety of colors! This chunky knit throw comes in seven colors and has good reviews! The biggest complaint seems to be against the ‘blush’ color which sounds like is more pink than the mauve it looks like. It’s one of the more affordable chunky knit options I’ve seen, as most on Etsy and other sites go for $150-$300+ depending on size!
4 – I’ll be honest. This next item may sound like the most ridiculous/strange thing you’ve ever heard of. A splurge jar of cherries. I can assure you, two years ago when I heard about them I rolled my eyes. But they are a delicacy and are 100% worth the price tag. Especially if you love Old Fashioneds or other drinks/foods with cherries. These Luxardo cherries from Italy are actually the original maraschino cherry, but if you hate the neon pink American version of maraschino cherries, don’t let this deter you. These are in an entirely different world. Kurtis actually hates maraschino cherries and loves these! One jar usually lasts us a year, making the price much more reasonable, since we typically only use them on special occasions. I promise they are worth their weight in gold!
5 – I know I’ve mentioned this weekly planner pad multiple times in the past year or two. But I felt it was worth mentioning again as we all get back into our fall routines. Especially since I find this to be the only calendar I use religiously! Each Monday morning I fill out my lists for the week and then add items as necessary. I love that I can not only track my daily agenda/goals, but I can also log the habit tracker section (working out, water intake, wearing my retainer, etc.). So much adulting, but I love marking the boxes off as I achieve my goals each day! I’m on my second one and about to order my third (they each track 52 weeks). And I actually keep all of my prior weeks for the year and then rubber band them when the year is over. Because I’m also a tracking nerd 😉 Whatever it takes to help me stay motivated!
