Nesting on this first Sunday in October.

Happy October 1st! It’s officially my favorite month of the year!

Is anyone else going to be watching the Chiefs game tonight to see Taylor, I mean Travis Kelce? Rooting for them!!!

This month I’m looking forward to:

Celebrating our 9th wedding anniversary.

Celebrating my Dude Man’s 7th birthday with all his friends.

Enjoying the Era’s tour on the big screen with friends.

All the Halloween parties, trunk or treats and festivities.


It’s been a really busy few weeks lately on the blog. Here’s what’s been happening:

I shared my Fall front porch featuring those planter boxes I scored from Aldi and these pretty trees from Amazon.

You can shop my whole front porch here.

This apple and brie flatbread is a yummy fall appetizer or a bougie way to eat pizza. Sharing the recipe here.

If you’re looking for a new book to read, I shared 15 books for fall. There’s everything from suspenseful thrillers to feel good cozy stories. You can see the whole list here.

On Thursday I got together with some new friends on Instagram and we all shared some Halloween treats. I shared my homemade candy corn vodka and tipsy candy corn cold brew. See how to make it, and all the treats here.

Amazon Finds

Now that the cooler weather is here, it’s officially sweatshirt and bike shorts weather, or what I like to call Princess Diana bike shorts season.

Remember Princess Diana's iconic Harvard sweatshirt? H&M has one just like it | HELLO!

Linking my favorite bike shorts here and similar finds to re-create Diana’s iconic look.

Here are some of my favorite Halloween finds on Amazon.

    It’s funny how some styles never really go out of style, isn’t it? Been a good, 30 to 40 years since that picture of Diana was taken and still people generally wear the same types of athletic wear.

    I’m visiting from the Sunday sunshine blog. Thank you for sharing your post. Please come back again.!

      Yes isn’t it crazy how styles come back? I’m loving that all the 90’s vibes, the wide leg jeans and denim skirts are coming back!
