I'm making these right now

Got a roast in the crock pot and mini pumpkin pies in the oven. My house smells sooooo good.

For those of you keeping count

I'll be home in 57 days :)

Autumn favorites

I love fall. L.O.V.E. I love the crispy clean air, the leaves changing colors, pumpkin patches, breaking out all of the jackets, cozy fall decorations and most importantly all of the pumpkin flavored ice cream/drinks/desserts! Here are some of my favorite things right now.

1. Pumpkins of all shapes and sizes

2. Tis the season for pies

3. Fall leaves

4. Starbucks Pumpkin Space Latte's. I've been to Starbucks more in the past 2 weeks than I have in the past 2 years. Cold weather and working early/late hours are my excuse.

5. Columbia fleece zip ups. I stole Blaine's and wore it 3 times this week. I finally got my own today (it was on sale, I saved over $20!).

6. Moccasins. I have 4 pairs and I wear one just about every day.

7. Candles. They are so much better in the fall/winter. They feel so cozy and they come in such yummy scents. (Plus how cute are these candle holders? I've also seen corn kernels, acorns, mini pine cones and coffee beans in place of the candy corn for fall)

8. Halloween candy. Something about orange colored Kit Kat's and chocolates in the shape of pumpkins just makes them tastes better.

9. My new 125th Anniversary GALLON size Ball jar. Yes, you read that right. Gallon size. It now holds mini pumpkins on my mantle. Yes, you read that right too. It holds mini pumpkins.

10. All things apple. Caramel apples, apple cider and apple cider doughnuts. I could SO go for a delicious caramel apple from IGA. Who wants to hand deliver one to me?

All alone

Blaine had to fly to California yesterday morning for work and I spent the night alone for the first time since we moved in together a year and a half ago. I found something out about myself while I've been alone for the past 36 hours. I don't like it. I don't get scared per say, I just prefer not to be alone especially over night. I did enjoy however not doing much today. First day in many months that I (mostly) sat, watched tv and was online I got up a little before 10, watched Father of the Bride and Father of the Bride Part 2, did dishes, laundry and picked up the house and spent the rest of the time on Pinterest. Blaine's flight gets in in a little over an hour and I'm getting ready to do some shopping at DSW (I have a $10 coupon whoop whoop! seriously if anyone shops at/has a DSW near by sign up for their special offers. They send great coupons!) and HomeGoods.

Later gators!
