Fall Favorites

With fall's arrival and the temps finally cooling down a bit, I figured it was A good time to post some fall favorites of mine...

Pumpkin everything! Pumpkin pie, spiced lattes, room fresheners, hand soaps, the works. Love me some pumpkin smells!

Going to the pumpkin patch in search of some great finds.

Hot apple cider.

Crisp mornings and evenings.

Beautiful changing leaves...i think another trip to the mountains will be necessary.

Long hikes on the's also Wilson's favorite time of year.

Seasonal beer flavors

Halloween decorations and buckets of candy...for the kids of course :-)

Sitting by the fire pit with a glass of wine.


Good running weather.

There are probably many more I could think of but these are definitely my favorites.  What are some of your fall favorites?

Busy Week

It may only be Wednesday, but this week has exhausted me so far. Long days both Monday and Tuesday with regular job followed up with swim lessons and last night my boss and I also went out for some dinner after lessons, so it ended up being a good 16 hour day. Wilson was not appreciative!

Today was better as I only had work till 4pm so home before 5:30     with a couple tasty beers already enjoyed. We are hitting up a taco food truck for dinner with our neighbors in an hour. Love me some Mexican grub!

Only two more days till playtime...yeah! Hope everyone is having a happy hump day!

Saturday Tidbits

Happy Saturday!

  • My new job is crazy busy and I've been soaking up new info like a sponge these last few weeks. I'm sure in a couple months things will level out but until then, thank goodness for drinks after work.
  • The weather has taken a turn from hot and humid to super awesome! Wilson and I are chillin on the patio with the nook and an iced coffee enjoying the cool morning temps. I think a long walk in park is necessary today.
  • So how's the running going…well the foot has still been giving me problems so I've been focusing on walking and my exercise bike, plus swimming of course. I really hope this heals soon.
  • At the rate its going, I may not be able to do the five or so races I wanted to do.  Injuries are so stupid.
  • With it already being mid September, I am finding myself thinking about fall activities and the approaching holidays. Hoping we can plan some fun things to do in the upcoming weekends. I think Oktoberfest is fast approaching, bringing many delicious beers for me to try :)

Hope everyone is doing well and enjoying a beautiful morning as  well. I still have to catch up on reading blogs and i hope to start posting a bit more. Later gators!
