It's looking like Fall

Ahhh.....October.
You have finally arrived.
I love you so much.

And, you brought your Fall weather with you.
70's all week = heaven.

I have been waiting for October to come so I can put out ALL of my Fall Decorations.
You can never have too many pumpkins on your front porch (I have 6)
My mums have been planted:
Gourds & Pumpkins on the kitchen table..
Nothing says Fall like pumpkins!
Our new house has this bay window in our kitchen, it made a lovely place to display more Fall decorations!
Like a tray of mini pumpkins....
And, a vase of pumpkins on a vine!
A pumpkin made out of twigs (and, it lights up at night!)
More gourds & pumpkins on my kitchen island....
I spy another pumpkin in my Family Room...
And, 3 jack o lanterns on our built-ins...
And, a pumpkin patch sign...
Yes, I am aware that it looks like pumpkins have thrown up over my house & I am totally okay with that! Have I mentioned I love Fall? :)

One of the many things I love about Fall is cooking.
Fall food is comfort food....crock pot meals, casseroles & soups.
Does it get any better than that?

And, the baking in Fall is fun too.
Right now I have THIS baking in my oven.
My house smells Ah-mazing.

Speaking of pumpkin-y foods...you MUST go to Trader Joe's & get a box of this:
Yum.Yum.Yum.
Last week, I picked up these in the dollar spot at Target.
Such cute ideas....can't wait to try them out!
Every October you will find this glass pumpkin on my kitchen counter filled with candy corn pumpkins and caramel candy corn. Yes, caramel candy corn. Best candy corn ever.
Oh yeah, these are on my counter too.
Reeses Peanut Butter cups = the best candy to give out to Trick or Treaters
(or, to keep for yourself!)
Can I get a high five for October?
Love this time of year, Fall is the gateway to the holiday season!
....The decorating, the food, the crisp air, the changing of color, the crunchy leaves, boots, cozy sweaters, candles & all things pumpkin (except the Pumpkin Spice Latte....yuck!!!)


Happy October!

  14. I completely agree; fall is my very favorite time of the year! But how do you keep your kids from eating the candy sitting around; I like it for myself to grab a handful, but I am afraid EmmyKate will sneak bites all evening long.
