Things That Thrill Me

Thanks to this mailbox decor, my new obsession is cornstalks – I guarantee you I will copy this entire photo for our own curb appeal by the end of the week.

Soup season is upon us, so I’m looking forward to attempting to make one of my all-time favorites – chicken and wild rice soup.

For as many scarves as I do own, this outfit inspiration board made me realize that I don’t have a tan/neutral scarf for fall – that’s going to have to change!

Since I’m having zero luck with finding the brand name box in stores, I’m going to have to try my hand at homemade pumpkin pie pop tarts so I can get my fix!

Did anybody else catch the LC Lauren Conrad runway show last week at the beginning of fashion week? I made my mom watch it with me huddled around the laptop in the kitchen, and we both immediately fell for this coat – it’s just so darn pretty to look at.

I’ve always loved the look of distressed wooden signs, but I had no idea how easy they are to DIY!

I’m not a huge fan of skirts, but who could resist this burgundy midi skirt paired with a striped button down? It’s a perfect outfit for this time of year.

I’m working hard to get our home decorated and ready for fall, and I’m loving this mantel since it remains neutral with only pops of the seasonal colors.

Um, eggplant parmesan in appetizer bites form? Yes, and please.

@Disneyland is full of hidden scenes and little details. This area in particular, right around the corner from Fantasyland, was my favorite of them all! Maybe because we were there early before the crowds came pouring in, or maybe I was taking a moment to be nostalgic ... either way this was the first time in a few months that I felt happy and 100% myself. Perhaps that’s the magic of Disney that Walt always talked about.  #adultsatdisney #disneyland
