It is "officially" fall! It has been fall in my house since September 1st, but now the world has joined me! I love everything about fall. The weather, the food, the activities, back to school, Halloween, Thanksgiving, Christmas preparations, apple picking, pumpkin picking and the baking that goes along with them, fall decorations, fall crafts. You name it I probably love it!
#2 Fresh Flowers
I love to buy fresh flowers! I love to receive flowers as well, but that doesn't happen as often as I buy them for myself! Mike probably buys them for me a few times a year, so he isn't a complete slacker :) I don't buy them too much in the winter, but in the spring and in the fall, I buy them almost weekly. There is just something about fresh flowers that brighten up a house and I crave that in the spring around here after a long winter and there is no better decoration in the fall than an arrangement of fall colored flowers! Take a look at some arrangements I made from some Trader Joe's flowers this week!
#3 Pumpkin Butter
I am loving Pumpkin Spice lattes from Starbucks, the Pumpkin Mocha iced lattes from Dunkins...all the usuals! But this week I bought a new pumpkin food and I am in love! Pumpkin Butter! Seriously people, it is so good!
I am loving it for two reason...
1. It is delicious!
2. It has a touch of sweetness to it and even though I love it, I won't eat a ton of it. This is a win, win for me because with peanut butter, I can't get enough of it. I LOVE it and can eat it right from the jar and I can eat mass quantities of it without thinking twice (I am not alone here, right??). It is a food that I feel I need to consume daily, but can often have a hard time portioning. So now I have found a great alternative. It is perfect on all the usual suspects such as English muffins and apples, but I only use a little!
#4 Fall Clothes
I love me some fall clothes. Jeans, t-shirt or long sleeves. I love adding a scarf to an outfit, layers, cardigans (I may have one in every color!) and sweatshirts! If I am being totally real, my weight is a big factor in my relief that it is finally time for fall clothes. Next summer I know I will love getting some new summer clothes and I probably won't be quite as excited to cover up in the fall, but this year I am happy for the layers! If I was going out to buy new fall clothes, these are the types of outfits I would look for.....
Love these outfits! I don't necessarily love every accessory shown but the clothes and most of the shoes are right up my alley for things I would love to buy! I am itching to put together some of these outfits, but I am holding off right now. I have enough to get me through the next few months of cooler weather and hopefully, I will be able to add some things around Christmas time after I have lost some weight!
This is my favorite day of the week! Today Owen and I are just hanging around the house and the yard. We will walk down to get Olivia today and maybe have a little outside time before we head inside for Pizza and movie night. My favorite time of the week! We make pizza, watch a movie and just hang out as a family! I look forward to it every week! The past few weeks we have watched Full House, which I am loving, but tonight I would like to get back to watching a movie. I was thinking maybe this one...
Have a great Friday!!
