{Welcome Fall}

Friends, I LOVE fall.  After the hottest summer on record {and pregnant during it, no less}, I am ready for it!! Of course it means I'm back at work but I am just so ready for what I think is the "coziest" season of all {Winter is a close 2nd for me}!

We celebrated by doing absolutely nothing at the lake & enjoying the rain {which oddly enough I love at the lake}. 

Here are a few things I'm looking forward to over the next 3 months {in no particular order}:

Dressing the babe for fall.  Our first fall together.  Seriously, what is cuter than a babe all bundled up for the fall? Nothing.  I purchased a few cuties from BabyGap the other day.  Can't wait to see my munchkin in them and snuggle, snuggle, snuggle, these super soft sweaters {well, my these sweaters} ;)

 And my brother - expert crocheter Johnny - is going to make him this Pixie hat in gray! I already am dying over it all!

& I just spent $24 at Von Maur on this hat for him.  I normally wouldn't spend that much on an accessory that he will quickly outgrow but I figured he will wear it at least 24 times this winter {& future babies can wear it too........ ;)!  I fell in love with the cuteness & to even it out I got some cute overalls for next spring for $8! What a steal!

Chiefs parties at our house......

and along with those come crockpot meals with some Pinterest recipes {already made some yummy beef stew this past week}......

Pumpkin patch & apple orchard visits

Sweaters and Boots

Starbucks Caramel Apple Spice Cider

I know most people freak over the Pumpkin Spice Latte.  Which I love to treat myself to as well, but, the Caramel Apple Cider is scrumdiddlyumptious!!

I sure hope my post makes you as excited for my favorite season as I already am! Obviously.

Oh and before I sign off, I MUST share this text between my husband and the photo that I found on our computer when I was posting Landon's 2 month picture on Facebook today {2 months OLD! Can you believe it!!?}- the picture made me literally laugh out loud!  Mike always jokes that {because Landon is such a mover and a shaker} he does the Y-M-C-A all day long.  Well I sent him this picture and this was his response.  Exactly!
