ONE. Obsessions as of Late.
Just last week, I was talking to my mom about how I don’t necessarily have anything I “collect”. Though I like stuff just as much as the next person, I was under the assumption that the only thing I collected was purses and clothes…haha. Lately, though, I have found myself wanting two things: fun coffee mugs and decorative linen napkins for my dining room table. Random, yes, but now I can say I collect something! Two new recent purchases were this fun cup from Anthropologie and this set of patterned napkins from World Market:
TWO. Time to Decorate the Punkins.
I was on Pinterest during the middle of the night searching for all kinds of fun ways to decorate pumpkins this year to display at the house…big, small, fat, wide, I like them all. I want to make them stand out and do something a little different other than the traditional carving routine. Here are a few of my front runners:
Three. Shoes Galore.
Last weekend, Mimi and I took our girls for a shopping excursion to get some new walking shoes for the fall and winter months. We had been on the search for the perfect walkabouts and went to one of my favorite local shops, The Little Cottage
, to check out the goods. Of course Miss Caroline was ALL about it, measuring her foot and trying on all the latest styles, though we were told she has “sweet meat” AKA fat little footsies…haha. She did walk out with two new adorable pairs for the coming months:

FOUR. Staples Back to School Giveaway Winner.
First of all, thanks to so many of you who commented to participate in the giveaway I held earlier in the week…I am SO glad to know that there are other school supply addicts out there other than myself :). I used a random gadget to select the winner and the $25 gift card goes to Laura from Our Life in the Queen City
!! Congrats my friend…I will be contacting you to claim your prize soon.
FIVE. Jam Packed Weekend Ahead.
I am so ecstatic for the coming weekend… too much fun to handle and some people would think I am crazy for having so much to do, but it’s fall which means all sorts of activities to keep us occupied! Tomorrow, Miss Caroline and I are headed to a local jumpy place for a friends’ birthday party, then we’ll be meeting up with Jeff and Miss Carson to head to the Grays for football, food, and celebrating 3 birthdays. Fast forward to Sunday morning church, then Aunt Candice is coming over to take pictures for Little Bit’s 3 month shoot (how is it possible she is already 3 months old?). To round things out, we are having dinner with Lauren and Andy Sunday night in celebration of Andy’s old man bday! Lots of family and friend time which suits us just fine!
