Counting down with some autumnal goodness….

Today I saw one brown leaf dancing it’s way to the ground in the breeze and my heart did a cartwheel.

CANNOT wait to bust out the Uggs and scarves for our morning walks to school.

Getting ready to gather pine cones and acorns on my Tuesday/Thursday morning hikes for our mantel display.

Making a permanent spot for the Crock Pot on the kitchen counter for slow cooked comfort meals.

Reserving my first pumpkin spice latte for a morning that actually calls for it ~ there’s got to be that nip in the air.

Did I mention that I LOVE me some Fall?


Happy Friday!


Skating into the holidays…

…one tradition at a time.

Turkey & cranberries, mashed potatoes & gravy, sweet potatoes & marshmallows, green beans & fried onions and apple crumb pie & whipped cream have all been consumed.

Sat in front of the fireplace sipping coffee and admiring the holiday decor in this month’s Coastal Living {drool} and jotting down oodles of festive recipes and beverages.

Annual family ornaments have been purchased.

And, yes, Santa has been visited……TWICE!

We’ve already had SO much fun and it’s all just started.

It truly is the most wonderful time of the year.


I’ve learned that if you don’t scurry, take it all in early and enjoy EVERY minute, it’s gone.

Not gonna let that happen.

‘Tis the season!

2 More Days…

…and the 2010 NFL season will be in full swing!

Hitting up the UCLA vs. Stanford game this Saturday evening, too.

Football is in the air.

I LOVE the sound of whistles, referee calls, cheerleaders and commentators.

Now to put together some tailgatin’ eats for the Rose Bowl….
