Hello, First Day of Autumn.

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, 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! 



  1. I love reading these! I owe you an email--sorry, things have been crazy on the wedding front!

    Ginger snaps are so good--ah, love them!

  2. LOVE the boots! I'm in FL so I'm considering combining my September AND October budgets for new boots... because it won't get cold here until January... for 3 days. Whatevs. Love them anyway!

  3. No worries, I know you are super busy!! Such an amazing time in your life, I can't even imagine. Hope your party was super fun!

  4. Ahhh, I know all about that. I lived in Arizona for a few years and it was the same way! The things we do for fashion ;) And thanks, I love them too! Broken in already and super comfy.
