Happy Autumn

I was crushing so hard on this runner from Bed Bath & Beyond! While I was there picking something up for a wedding off of a registery, I saw this little beauty....Mom promptly picked it up and put it in the cart, informing me that it was her Happy Fall present to me. I just love that woman!! Now everytime I see it I grin from ear to ear and feel that cadbury chocolate melting feeling in my center. LOVE.

Now that the weather is cooling down in the evening and the mornings are crisp, it is finally time to decorate for Halloween. I'll be dragging the boxes out today sometime. How is it that I have more decorations for this holiday than any other, save Christmas??!?! I guess there is such cute stuff every year that I can't resist picking up a think or two to add to my collection.

I am looking forward to;

  • Walks with leaves crunching underfoot
  • Pumpkin bread
  • Helping the kids decide which costume to don
  • Trunk-or-Treating
  • Checking out the various Haunted Villages that seem to pop up in our neighborhood
  • Yummy smelling candles
  • Pulling on a cozy sweater or two
  • Boots with my skirts for church
  • Beef stews and other crockpot soups

What are you looking forward to??


  1. Fall break (no schedule -yay!) and cooler temps. I bought a pair of boots from DSW, but they're going back. They feel like vinyl and for the price, I thought they'd be leather, at least around the foot... where can you find a good pair? Love your runner and the sentiments attached to it!

  2. I am very excited for the SCRUMPTIOUS pumpkin white chocolate chip cookies that Natalie always makes for me. YUM! I can't wait for her to bring those babies to a girls night out. (HINT HINT)

  3. Definitely looking forward to the cooler weather and the fall clothes. I have much cuter cool weather clothes. Also hot chocolate in the mornings and soup for lunch.
