Oh hello, First Day of Autumn.
Gone are the hot, sunny, beachy, crazy-fun, crazy-busy, packed days of Summer 2011.
You make me happy for the following reasons.
I love fall-scented candles (hey, Sweet Cinnamon Pumpkin from Bath & Body Works. I love you for reals), scarves, pumpkin everything (pumpkin ales and pumpkin bread = put it together with a bowl of hearty, warm, comforting, spicy chili and I am a happy fall girl), football, the impending BEST holidays of the year (waddup Thanksgiving & Christmas!), my boot collection, and things like that.
Speaking of, I now introduce you to my September budget….and then some.
Coveted Frye boots, you are alllll mine.
(Wearing them with bare legs while I still can.)
|Helloooo, my cognac crush.|
First Day of Autumn, you also kinda make me want to cry.
I don’t have my own place to go all housewife and decorate for fall like I normally do. I miss being crafty. What good is all my Pinteresting if I can’t follow through with the fabulous decorating ideas?!
Oh yeah, and it is RAINY and COLD and DREARY. I am sick. And this means winter is just around the corner. I still have West Coast blood. I may be having a mini panic attack….no, seriously.
At least I will be spending more time wrapped up in my fuzzy leopard blanket (affectionately referred to as simply “LB”).
Oh, and more quality time with the toy hoarder.
|He will bring out every. Single. Toy. To you.|
Ahhhh, think happy thoughts!!!
Before I head out, I’ll leave you with my newest Friday Five.
The Friday Five
1. What I’m Reading:
Still reading Rant, which I love. Normally a really fast reader, but I have just been SO busy lately, and free time has been spent at the gym, drawing, and watching TV for the most part.
2. What I’m Listening To:
Jonah Hill on Howard from the week in review. ‘Nuff said.
Oh, and BPM and Area on SiriusXM radio. Startin’ the weekend early today, my friends.
And of course I blasted Metallica full force when I had to get my revenge in our daily rubber band war at work today. It was WWIII, I tell ya.
|We do this on the reg.|
3. What I’m Watching:
I have been watching Breaking Bad late night on my computer when I head to bed at night. 3 eps in and I’m already addicted.
(This is in addition to the 492013 other shows I watch. I like to think of myself as a connoisseur.)
4. What I’m Eating:
Dark chocolate-covered peanut butter pretzels. By the ton. Handmade by the bossman at work. Protein! Antioxidants! Right?
Snuck a gingersnap in there, too. Forgot how much I love these!
(And ignore the chipped polish.)
Don’t worry…there was plenty of nutrition in there today, too….but these are way more interesting than the cereal and turkey sangwich I had earlier.
5. What I’m Pinning:
Pinned these avocado quesadillas yesterday, which prompted me to create my own version for lunch yesterday. Yum.
Have a fabulous weekend!
