Currently Loving

Fall is here with a fury, and my favorite season has me in the best mood.
I absolutely live for this time of year!

I am already drafting a fall bucket list, but in the meantime I am riding these good vibes out.
So. Much. Goodness.

Autumn is my favourite season because | of hot coffee warming my cold hands


I love stormy Wednesday mornings wearing cozy leggings, listening to Ben Howard, and sipping hot coffee.

A million Cozy Couture headwraps to build up my inventory for my first craft show in October, and gear up for a busy Etsy season.

Some black coffee with a splash of Chocolate Biscotti creamer out of my favorite orange Starbucks mug (Go Pokes!).

Forward to our family vacation next month. 7 of us nestled up in a cabin at Lakes of the Ozarks sounds really about now. Hiking, spa dates, playing games, and relaxing together.

Badminton! Adam and I play a game in our jammers almost every single night before we hit the hay.
Yes, we're 85.

Delicious skinny turkey chili. The whole city is slowly changing into fall, cooler weather and all, and I can't get enough. So we made a huge pot of chili and watched Patch Adams last night - so heavenly.

I would like to be watching Scandal, but when the heck does it come back on? It better not be spring, I can hardly contain myself. I love so many some fall shows!

A fun fall centerpiece for our dining room table. I found a spectacular long rustic box made out of reclaimed barn wood while at Warehouse Weekends at the beginning of the month. So the plan is to layer it with pumpkins, berries, twigs, and candles for a rustic, pretty autumn touch.
My inspiration...

I was still curled up in bed with my sweet hubs and pup. The thunderstorms were a'raging this morning, and I could've stayed in bed all day. Oh! And pancakes in bed. Definitely pancakes.

A Halloween bash with my awesome sis-in-law. Actually, she's the mastermind behind our ghoulish fest.. I am really just the spastic one pinning every Halloween thing that crosses my path on Pinterest! ;)

Having Adam home for consecutive weeks. It sounds crazy, but what a treat to get to spend time with him. He was in China for a week and Washington several times in the last month, so I am soaking it all in.

The world's best, coziest sweater/tunic from Gap Body. Hands down, the best purchase I have ever made. The sweater has a hood and the material is soft like butter. Perfect for lounging around the house in yoga pants, or running around the town in leggings and boots.

An awesome Nespresso latte maker (pricey!). Holy heck, my cousin has one of these babies and it's a game changer. I also would love some of the awesome prints on my on-going "Wishlist" board on Pinterest. It's out of control...

My new iPhone case from Society6. A splash of color and whimsy, so cute.

Down the days until Christmas... 98!


What are you currently loving this week?

    1. I know! It will be nice to get some good exercise in everyday, and also have the balance of relaxing and enjoying relaxation! :)

  5. My husband's family goes to Lake of the Ozarks every July. Husband and I didn't go this last July because we used up all our vacation time for the honeymoon, plus it's a VERY long drive for us since we live in Alabama. Have fun!

    1. Isn't it such a gorgeous place? You'll have to head up there in the fall sometimes - the trees are gorgeous shades of gold and burnt orange! So stunning.

  6. wow 98 days to Christmas?! now way!

  8. Scandal is back next Thursday!!! I wish it was cool enough for leggings and sweaters here, so currently I'm a little jealous..

  9. I count down to Christmas tooo!!!! And I love that sweater!

  10. Gotta love the Lake - where are you staying? Our family has a condo within the Four Seasons and we love it no matter what type of weather Missouri is dealing with.

  12. Yay for the Holidays!!! I need to get a creative Fall centerpiece going in my head as well ;)

  13. I am loving this post! I with I could say I am doing the same but SoCal have been in the triple digest this week it is hot as heck! I am hoping it cools down soon so it can feel like fall soon!
