fall loves

Yesterday, the first day of fall, something magical happened: it actually cooled down in Houston! Granted, it wasn’t cool exactly, but it was in the upper 70’s and 80’s which felt amazing compared to the oppressive heat we’ve had the past few months. Most importantly, it made me hopeful. When I was younger I loved the heat of summer, but as I get older I have less and less tolerance for it. Because of the relief fall brings us it is quickly becoming my favorite season. I was even inspired to spend the day baking yesterday – cookies and a delicious apple crisp, yum.

Here are some things I’m loving lately!

A Good Day Journaling Cards – I really like these cards as filler for Project Life. I haven’t done a “day in the life” in awhile but I think I’m going to bring it back soon!

Threshold Organic Sheets – In my quest to make over our bedroom one thing I fixated on was getting new sheets for our bed, and I wanted them to be white. I found these at Target and they were cheaper than any pair of sheets we’ve ever bought and they are SO comfortable. They also come in lots of great patterns and I can almost guarantee that I won’t ever buy another brand.

Maxi skirts – No link to anything specific, but I’ve been loving these for the weekends. They’re obviously not a new trend but they’re perfect for the transition to fall, especially for a pregnant lady.

Custom Note Pads – At home we always have spare paper around for lists and notes, and for awhile we’ve just been using a generic spiral notebook. Ours is almost full though, so I want to find something cute to take its place. I love these custom jotters from Paper Source.

Transport Tote – I am in love with this tote bag by Madewell. My current bag is great but it is just a little too small so this is going on my Christmas list. It’s a color that will go with anything and it’ll last a long, long time.

What are you loving these days?

    From Nora:

    Loving that we have our windows open at night (and during the day right now) meaning a lower electric bill, loving the fact that I cleaned off the side of our fridge and got rid of old junk and things, and loving the fact that our bathroom project is SO MUCH CLOSER to being done. oh, and that I have a full week off in two weeks!

    From Elizabeth:

    I have that Madewell bag in black and it is absolutely my favorite thing. Madewell sometimes does 25% off codes around Holidays and sometimes randomly if you get their emails; I don’t remember which period sale I used, but I cut a nice chunk off with one.

    This fall I am loving being somewhere with a legitimate fall! I’ve never lived anywhere with changing leaves, and I am so excited to see it happening right now.

    From yours truly, melissa:

    Love that tote and that color – just gorgeous. That may have to go on my Christmas wishlist as well!

    Maxi skirts are truly the best! I bought maxi skirts after I had Alice specifically because I knew they’d fit while I transitioned back to my pre pregnancy weight. They’re also flattering, in my opinion.
