Fall Favorites

Hi there! I thought I'd quickly mention a few of my favorite things this Fall. . . :)

This candle is one of Michael's favorite things right now too! LOL When we light it, the entire house smells like fresh baked brownies. Mmmmmmm :)

I haven't owned any black denim for a couple of years, and wanted to get some this Fall to add some variety to my closet. I went into American Eagle yesterday, and they were having a BOGO 50% off sale, so I bought this pair. I am wearing them right now. :) They are super comfortable -- very important since I spend so much of my time on the floor with Lincoln haha

When we packed up to move, I found a shoe box that fit all of my bottles of nail polish perfectly. I was pretty pleased with myself for how they fit so well in this box. Well, the box never made it onto the moving truck. I'm hoping it at least made its way into the donation pile and not the trash? :/ Anyways, I have to start my nail polish collection from scratch. I bought a bottle from Essie's Fall line called "Knee High Life" (It's 90s inspired). It's a fun berry color! It's also the only bottle of polish I have right now so I've been wearing this color for a few weeks now. :)

What are some of your seasonal favorites that I need to know about?? Thank you so much for reading! xo

Florals for Fall

I used to hate floral prints when I was younger. I thought it was a print only grandmother's wore LOL now I love floral prints! (Well, Michael DOES tell me I have the same style as a grandma. . .) We all know Miranda Priestley (sarcastically) called floral prints "groundbreaking" for Spring, but I love it in all 4 seasons! I think the navy blue background of this dress makes the pattern appropriate for Fall. I paired it with a tan sweater and cognac booties.

Today after we got home from church, I read for a little bit and then took a nap. I ran to the mall to get a couple of things, went grocery shopping, and picked up some dinner (Zoe's Kitchen for Lincoln and me, and Panda Express for Michael). Sundays are the best! haha I hope you got to relax and recharge as well! Thank you so much for reading! xo

Plaid Top + Sweater Vest for a Fall Festival

Michael was making me laugh!

Are you sick of this sweater vest yet? :P I've been wearing it with everything! Today I layered it with this red and blue plaid top. I wore this to the city's annual fall festival. We were able to walk there from the house, and the weather was sooo perfect! This is our first fall living in GA, and it's been funny to listen to locals complain about the weather being warm for October. . .it's a lot cooler than what Michael and I are used to in Phoenix this time of year! I don't make any comment, but just keep quiet and enjoy (what I consider to be) the cool weather and changing leaves. :)

After the carnival, we came home and worked on a puzzle while Lincoln took a nap. The 3 of us watched the Smurf's movie on Netflix, and then we went to the park. This was a perfect day in my book! :) I hope you're having a wonderful weekend as well. Thank you so much for reading! xo

Instagram Roundup: 10/18/17

I'm just doing a quick roundup of my recent Instagram posts. Can you tell I gravitate towards 2 certain pairs of boots when the weather starts to cool down?? :) Tonight we went to the mall to walk around after eating dinner in the food court. We let Lincoln out of his stroller to walk around a little bit too, and he walked into e v e r y store we tried to pass by haha he is so curious about everything!! After we came home and Lincoln went to bed, I watched This is Us (my fave!) and Michael and I worked on a puzzle we bought yesterday from WalMart. :)

We're halfway through the week! Thank you so much for reading! xo

Fall 2017 Trend: Red

I love wearing red. I wore red shoes to my Homecoming Dance in high school. The dress I wore for my engagement photos was red. Red is vibrant, bold, energetic. . . and I personally love how it looks with gold accessories. So luxurious! And a red lipstick? BAM - instant glamour! Needless to say, I am excited to see red as a major color this fall! Dresses, tops, bags, boots. . . .all I see is red. :)

Tonight we went out shopping for a Halloween costume for Lincoln, and we were very disappointed by the selection (or lack thereof). Maybe Halloween isn't a big deal out here?? We've never been big on celebrating this particular holiday, but I was excited at the idea of getting a costume for Lincoln. It's only 2 weeks away, and Goodwill didn't have a single Halloween item in the entire store. . . .it was strange! We weren't impressed by the selection at Walmart either, but we did buy 2 puzzles. :) After Lincoln went to bed, Michael and I put together the border for one of them! haha I forget how fun puzzles are.

Thank you so much for reading! xo

Light Pink Vest

I bought this pink vest from Top Shop at Nordstrom 2 years ago, but I've only worn it once because I felt like I didn't really know how to style it. When I got pregnant, I thought it would be cute to wear but didn't have a maternity top that looked quite right. I bought this white tank top over the summer, and it's perfect with the vest! I wore this yesterday for church followed by some errands, including taking Lincoln to the park. I felt a little overdressed on the playground, but oh well haha.

I also went grocery shopping yesterday, and last night I made these Mexican Sweet Potato Skins for dinner with enough leftover to eat for lunch throughout the week. I broke all of the skins, so am actually just eating the "filling" haha but it's sooooo good. I put extra adobo peppers in there to give it an extra kick. :)

I hope you have a great week, and thank you so much for reading! xo

Peplum Top and Sweater Vest for the Apple Festival


Yesterday we went to the Georgia Apple Festival in Ellijay! This was our first year going, and we didn't know how huge it was! We sat in a line to park our cars for what felt like forever. It was worth it though! The festival had every kind of apple dessert I could think of -- except we never did find just some classic apple pie?! There were also all kinds of crafts booths with really unique items. Next year I want to go back and buy some crafts for our home. There was also a tent serving homemade root beer that was so delish, and last night Michael was researching how we can begin brewing root beer ourselves haha.

I hope you're having a great weekend, and thank you so much for reading!
