Well hello autumn...

I love everything about fall and September is definitely my favorite month.
I especially love Pumpkin Spice Lattes not just because they are super tasty but (because they are seasonal and usually come out around Labor Day weekend) when I am taking those first glorious sips, I am reminded of what I was doing the past few years when I got my first PSL...usually it's camping but last year I was in the hospital and Bennett had been born hours before. Ok enough with the cheeseball-ness.

Anyways I really like them but realized that I like them even more with soy milk, although I don't really like the pricetag with soy!

I found a recipe for making pumpkin spice lattes at home. It's probably not exactly like you would get at Starbucks but it will at least taste similar and save a little cash which doesn't hurt.
I haven't tried it but I'm thinking I will soon. If anyone tries it let me know how it is!

Another reason I love fall is that my birthday is in mid September and I usually get to buy a few new things with my birthday money...just in time for all the cute and cozy clothes!

These are a few things I've been eyeing lately:

Gap legging jeans:

an alphabet & number stamp set:
(for cute cards and gift tags)

a cowl scarf:
(this one is cute but spendy)

(this is a little more reasonable)

this tunic:
(to wear with leggings and boots)

this hoodie:
(which is a little more fashionable than the usual ones)

this cute wrap:
(with skinny jeans and boots)

this super cute coat:
( I have a thing for funnel-necks)

these shoes:
(I don't think I would ever buy these but I just like to look at them)

these oxfords:
(at the top of my list and they also come with laces if you want)

a cute beanie:

What are you eyeing this fall?

    My friend Melissa found a pumpkin spice recipe that you can make in your crock pot! It made me wish I had registered for one of those when we got married. I had no idea what you could do with those things. I just thought they were for pot roast, and I hate pot roast.

    I drank my fist pumpkin spice latte the other day and it made me think of you! We will have to go camping again one of these Labor Day weekends, those were fun times!

    I want that recipe Kira! Maybe a google search will find it. I can't believe you didn't register for a crock pot...it's almost too easy. You can make anything in one, even cakes! You need one. I bet you can find a cheap one at Ross.

    Yes, Sara all of us camping next summer for sure!

    did you know that at a lot of starbucks' you can buy the syrups? i bought the gingerbread syrup and i like to put it in stumptown coffee...much tastier than the starbucks blends :).

    oh...and i LOVE all of these potential birthday items you posted. the funnel neck jacket is my favorite. so so cute! and i actually like cowl scarf #2 better than the more expensive #1 option...i'm a sucker for toggles. you always find the cutest things!

    AND....chiming in about crock pots....craig and i didn't register for one either, but ended up getting 5 of them! apparently people like to buy you crock pots when you get married in december because it's cold and people want comfort foods :).
