We had a busy week full of appointments, get togethers and outings.  We packed a lot of fun into our days and ended up going on walks through our neighborhood every night.  I think I could get used to this Fall routine.  I'm hoping to watch a lot of football, grill out, go for a few walks and maybe head to the outlet mall nearby.

The best parts of my week were:
1. Coming up with my Fall Fashion Inspiration Board.
I'd love to add some ankle booties, boyfriend jeans, vests and plaid to my wardrobe.

2. Making some tasty Fall treats & crock pot cooking -
Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Pancakes - recipe here
& tune in next week for these Reese's Pieces cookie recipe
 The cooler temps meant it was perfect crock pot cooking weather.  I tried two new pork recipes - Barbacoa pork and Pulled Pork BBQ.  Both were SO GOOD.  Check back on Monday when I share my menu with these delicious recipes.

3. I was doing some shopping and came across this darling Halloween outfit for Olive.  I love that it's smocked, polka-dotted and has smiling pumpkins on it.  It seems like all little girls in the South have quite a smocked dress collection.  You better believe she's going to be wearing this as much as possible for the next six weeks or so.

4. I know many of you live in areas where it's been scarf wearing weather for weeks now.  However, it finally got cool enough this week for scarves in Mississippi!  I was so excited that I wore them all week long.  It was cool enough in the mornings, but then I ended up ditching the scarf in the afternoon heat.  I'll take what I can get and look forward to cooler temps.

 5. We tried out a new story time this week and it was a lot of fun.  Olive got to play with new toys, read some books, meet little friends, play musical instruments and dance around.  She was a little shy at first but she enjoyed herself.  The maracas were definitely the best part for her.

Hope you have a wonderful weekend!!
Thanks for stopping by my blog.


  1. Love that Halloween outfit. It's so sweet!! I've been meaning to take Elizabeth to a story time, but when the time pops up, it's in the middle of nap time. Sigh.... And we finally have scarf weather here in NC now too! Isn't it so nice?

    Happy Friday!
