Is anyone ready for FALL? I sure am! Maybe it's because it's been cloudy here lately, but it just feels like FALL. Not to mention FOOTBALL SEASON is right around the corner. I can hardly contain myself :)

This week I ran to the mall during my lunch break because I wanted to buy a car freshener from Yankee Candle. I ended up picking the Pumpkin Spice - and I think that's what kick started my FALL feelings. :) I get in my car and all my favorite memories of fall come back to my mind! I LOVE IT! Anyways - while I was browsing Yankee Candle I couldn't help but notice all the new fall fragrances they have. I was thinking to myself, "Ooo, I want that one - and that one - and that one" I could spend my whole paycheck there! They have 8 brand new fragrances for fall! Check out the Yankee Candle Website!

I love baking fall goodies. Anything with Pumpkin is my favorite :) I make Pumpkin Cheesecake and Pumpkin Dip usually. I'd like to try some new fall recipes this year. What's your favorite fall treat? Maybe we can have a recipe swap!

To go along with the FALL theme I have going, Starbucks (my 2nd home) also has some wonderful fall treats. I L O V E their Pumpkin Loaf and they have wonderful Pumpkin Spice Frappuccino's. They also have a very tasty Pumpkin Cream Cheese Muffin. Mmmm Don't forget the Pumpkin Spice Latte and Pumpkin Scone!

I'm happy today is Friday. My parents are coming to visit this weekend! They're gonna spend a few days with us, then head down to the Keys or somewhere else down there and then come back and spend a few more days with us :) I'm so excited for them to see Tristan!!
I hope everyone has a wonderful day!!!


  1. I love everything about fall. My MIL bought me a fall-scented candle the other day and it totally made me ready for the season change! I can't wait! I also love Starbucks treats in the fall! And yay for your parents visiting! Have they ever been to the Keys? They will LOVE's a wonderful place!

  2. I'm more than ready for fall to actually be here. Once the leaves start changing I feel like it really begins. Have a great time with the parents!

  3. I really want one of those candles now! I love fall as well and I think that a lot of that comes from memories of marching band. So many good times there!
