Personal Update

I have the world's sweetest mom! So I didn't realize that my neice was selling magazine subscriptions for a school fundraiser (yeah, she was in kindergarten a grand total of 4 days before they had them fundraising). Anyway mom called and let me know she purchased 13 issues of InStyle Magazine for me! I haven't had a magazine subscription in a couple of years, it was a luxury I had to give up in college. This is such a great gift idea and I never thought about it. Fall is here, today was the first day it has actually been cool enough for it to feel it officially. I said back in the summer when I bought my Candles by Victoria, I wanted to save the gingered apple crisp for autumn. I lit it for the first time tonight and it is amazing! Actually I had it lit for about 30 minutes and all I could think about was baked apples so I looked up a recipe for apple crisp to make soon. The size of this candle is perfect for me, I could smell the fragrance all over the entire apartment. Here is the candle lit, I wanted to take a photo of the pretty crumbly cinnamon top before it melted away. I've used my others candles from the summer order so I'll need to make another CBV purchase soon and maybe get a couple holiday scents. And just for fun this is Lilly in her new neckerchief. Walmart had these in the pet section for halloween. I love the skull print and Lilly can totally rock it. She'll probably wear this on halloween when the kids come around for candy and all through football season as we cheer on our Pirates!

So fall also means good tv! I'm so excited about the new seasons of my favorite shows. My DVR is set, I have popcorn and wine on stock and I'm now working out eariler so I can get ready for bed before my shows start. Some of my favorites are: Greys Anatomy, Desperate Housewives, House MD, and Ghost Whisperer (shhh I'm embarrassed about that last one). There are also some new shows that I'm going to try to get into.

In other news I'm hoping to plan a few get togethers with my college and high school friends for the holidays. These upcoming three months are my favorite of the entire year. I live near the mountains and I'm planning a drive hopefully towards the end of the month to see the color change. I've also started making my Christmas list (I'll buy most of the gifts during Black Friday shopping). If anyone has any ideas what to get a 5 year old little girl and 2 year old little boys please let me know!
