Happy Fall Y'all

My favorite season is upon us... Fall! Break out the riding boots, skinny jeans, sweaters, scarves, pumpkin spice lattes and apple orchards. I love how the air smells, the ever changing colors on the leaves outside and the noise of crunching leaves as we take our dog on a walk through the park. Every year we make it a point to visit a local apple orchard and pick up our favorite Honey Crisp Apples, apple cider donuts and a few other apple bakery goods that we just can't pass up and of course the hayride through the orchard. This year we made a Fall Bucket List of all the items we love doing (and a few projects to keep our toddler entertained) to make sure we fit them all in. Making it was super easy, I just made a quick template using Microsoft Word and added some fall pictures to spruce it up. (Have to make it look cute hanging on the fridge right?)

Here are just a few of the items on our list this year:

- Visit a local farm during a fall festival
- Carve pumpkins
- Drink apple cider
- Visit an apple orchard
- Make an apple pie
- Make our way through a corn maze
- Make chili
- Snuggle up in front of the fireplace for a cozy night in
- Create art with leaves
- Rake leaves and jump in them
- Snuggle up on a hayride
- Make a stamped apple tree
- Have a bonfire
- Eat apple cider donuts
- Attend the local high school football game
- Go on a walk and crunch leaves with our feet
- Have a family movie night (complete with popcorn and candy corn of course!)
- With all of our activities - Have fun and enjoy our time as a family



I hope this inspires you to get out and enjoy some of the favorite things we love about Fall!

New Home! Filling a home.... Home Decor!


Wow, what a summer! I feel like summer goes by incredibly too fast however this year it seemed to fly by even faster. We had a busy summer. We sold our first home, moved in with my parents while we waited to close on our new home. We have been in our home for a little over a month and are slowly putting it together. I don't like to rush to purchase items just to fill a room and complete it. I like to take my time, search high and low and find the right items to fill a room. We still have lots to buy. We went from a 1400 sq.ft house to a house double that size, plus some. We still have lots of items to hunt for and purchase. 

We need to furnish a formal dining room, find area rugs, fill a kitchen (so much space!), find a new informal dining table, coffee tables, end tables, art, furnish a guest room and a loft which we are creating a family movie room. So much to do! Below are some of our favorite finds to date:

Fitness Fashion Picks - Touche x Morgan Stewart; Lululemon; Sweaty Betty

 

 

Athleisure wear is the hottest trend right now for active lifestyles and everyone under the sun is offering cute, functional outfits that take you from the gym to the coffee shop to around the city for a day filled with errands. I've complied some of my favorite looks. Happy Shopping!!


Morgan Stewart teamed up with Touche to create her own active line. What I love about this collaboration is Morgan is literally involved in every decision in the design process. If I can offer any advice, follow her on Instagram (boobsandloubs) and you will know that this girl has some serious style. Hurry don't wait on these styles. She had a full zip hoodie named Baguette and shorts named Jon that I was dying to get my hands on but sadly it sold out before I could get one.  Below are just some of my favorite styles from her collaboration:
