HocusPocus.JPG[oh, our house is ready for the season]

Last weekend I spent my Sunday baking up a storm. One of the recipes that I stumbled upon was this ultimate zucchini bread recipe from Smitten Kitchen. It turned out so great that I’m now going around asking people if they have extra zucchinis they’d like to get rid of!

I’m on the hunt for a new pair of black suede booties. My old Sam Edelman pair has finally bit the dust and I’m a little sad about it. Currently have these in the cart: BP Heath, Splendid Henley, Cole Haan Harrington. Thoughts?

I’ve got all things pumpkin on the brain and Trader Joe’s just released all of their seasonal goodies. Check out their full line-up here!

TheFontaine.jpg[chic lobby vibes at The Fontaine in Kansas City]

One of my favorite fall activities is taking the boys to the Boone & Scenic Valley Railroad for a Day Out with Thomas. The friendly blue tank engine will once again make his way to the station two weekends in a row (September 14, 15, 20, 21, and 22). I hope to see you there!

I couldn’t wait any longer and decided to put up our fall/Halloween decor this week. The boys love it all just as much as me! One of my favorite new things (that I bought at the end of last year), is this darling doormat. In the mood for a little DIY, try this one out!

My sister and I took a quick mid-week trip to Kansas City to see Kacey Musgraves in concert (amazing) and managed to do a little shopping as well! I snagged so many cute things, but the first thing I busted out (and am wearing today) is a scrunchie hair tie from H&M.

CousinParade[these cousins love a good parade]

It’s tailgating season and I am sure to never leave home without a koozie and my favorite insulated cup!

I’m not proud of this, but I’m a Bachelor franchise junky. Marcus can’t stand it, but I think it is a great show to have on with a glass of wine and baskets of laundry to fold. One of my favorite things to do the day after the show is to read I Hate Green Beans recap posts. I laugh out loud every time!

Ok, it is officially pumpkin season (well, at Starbucks anyway) and I am excited to try out the new Pumpkin Cream Cold Brew. Has anyone else tried it yet? Verdict?
