Fall Luv Blog Party!!

Don't you just love the fall? I do! So many of my favorite holidays happen in the fall. The air is crisp (unless you live here in Georgia and you have to imagine it's 65 degrees instead of 92), cinnamon seems to be in every goody you eat, and fashion tends to be darker and delicious. I wanted to create a post as part of a Fall Luv Blog Party! Here is the original blog post from The Patriotic Peacock . Join in with us and post your favorite things about fall. You know you love it!

Dark fall nail polish! I love everything from dark reds, chocolate browns, eggplant purples or navy blue. Anything dark is perfectly delicious! I can't help but snatch up every dark color I find.

Gingerbread Lattes!!! I love coffee all the time, but there is something about a Gingerbread Latte that screams fall! This year I'll have a hard time enjoying them because they're very heartburn inducing since I'm pregnant. Can they make them iced? Iced coffee doesn't give me heartburn.

Our annual trip to Roanoke, VA. I know this isn't a fall favorite for everyone but it is for our little family. We go every October to visit Jason's friends and family and this year we're planning on staying a full 10-days. Not sure if we'll stay that long but it's the plan. We love to enjoy the blue mountains, the bright fall leaves, our dear friends and family that live there and all the wonderful little shops and resturaunts that Roanoke has (that we don't have here). It's the perfect fall tradition for our little family.

Decorative pumpkins! Oh my! I like them glittered, painted, carved and polka-dotted. I love decorating with all kinds of pumpkins for fall. I think September through November they're totally appropriate to have all over the place. I'm trying to think of new ways to decorate them this year!

I consider the end of the fall season (and the beginning of Christmas time) Thanksgiving. I love everything about Thanksgiving...we think about everything we have to be thankful for, we join together with our family and enjoy some of the best cooking our family has to offer. This year I'm excited for the food. I'm excited for the family too. I'm the MOST excited to meet my nephew Elliot though. He's due a few days before Thanksgiving and I can't think of anything to be more thankful for. A tiny blessing for our family. I can't wait to kiss his head and look at his tiny feet and know that he's MY nephew, a little reflection of my beautiful sister and amazing brother-in-law. I already love you little Elliot Matthew, you'll be a yummy little ending to the fall season

What are your favorite things about fall? And seriously, do you know if they make Gingerbread Latte's iced? LOL. Help a pregnant girl out!


  1. All ya gotta do is at the person at the counter in Starbucks! Also- for fall nail polishes...Ulta? We should go look sometime.

  2. I agree! Maybe we'll have time to go in there tomorrow morning =)

  3. Ulta has soo many great fall nail polishes! Try the essie fall collection. I've bought 3 or 4 of the colors and love them. By the way, did you decorate those pumpkins?! I am so jealous! I may have to steal that idea!!

  4. I LOVE LOVE LOVE FALL! Right there with you honey bee! Today the high is 91 but the humidity is super low and there's a light breeze and I almost feel fall coming. Yay!

  5. Hey Jess! We are definitely going to look at Essie polishes at Ulta, I'm totally obsessed with dark nails right now. Also, no I didn't do the pumpkins but they are my inspiration (they're from the Country Living website).

    Karen, you know we're both all about fall! We always have been and we always will be, right? What's Chloe going to be for Halloween? I'm trying to decide what Rylie's going to be.

  6. Thanks for joining my party!!! I love that nail polish and those AWESOME pumpkins!
