Fall Favorites

Ah, fall. I've decided you truly are the most wonderful time of the year. It's crazy to me that we're already halfway into October. Here are just a few of the things that I've been loving this fall.

Plaid 
All the plaid. Don't get me wrong, I've pretty much always loved plaid, but as fall rolls around each year, the love for it is reignited as I see everyone digging out the pattern. I bought this cute little button up for H at a recent baby sale and our family friends bought him a few adorable shirts from Old Navy recently. I only wish they had the flannel in my size.




Fall Harvest Salsa
I tend not to try too many new, fun items at Trader Joe's because often they are packaged dinners or cookies that don't make a lot of sense nutritionally, but when I saw this salsa I knew I had to try it. I especially like that it has pumpkin, apples and butternut squash in it as well as some peppers that add a bit of a kick! to it.


The Changing Leaves
Yep, another obvious favorite. Whether I'm running through them or just staring at the trees that are soon to drop their leaves, I can't help but smile.


Pumpkin Smoothies
Somewhere, I saw mention of this pumpkin gingerbread smoothie via Barre3. I put my own spin on it using a bit less molasses and nut butter and adding a little coconut milk I had and it was surprisingly tasty. 


I wouldn't be surprised if I come up with another fall favorites round up in the next few months. It's a pretty perfect time of year. 

What fall things are striking your fancy? Any ideas for cute baby costumes? I'm debating on whether or not to dress up Henry.

Yum, I will have to try that smoothie recipe! Sounds awesome! I'm all about pumpkin and gingerbread so I bet I'd like it! Henry looks so cute in his flannel! I don't own a flannel but am thinking I need to get one they look so great on everyone else!

Things I'm love this fall are the changing leaves, being able to wear my fall boots again, pumpkin spiced Chobani greek yogurt (soooo good!), cooler temps at night which are great for sleeping, and the return of pumpkin spice lattes!

Oh goodness, H is so adorable! Well, so are his parents :) I love plaid too and finally just found one that fits me. Lots of them are the boyfriend fit and it doesn't work for my body :(

Hurrah for Fall! Henry looks so cute in his little plaid shirt!

I love Fall as well -- you can't go wrong with pumpkin, boots, sweaters, oranges and browns, warm drinks and golden leaves! The only thing I don't love about Fall is all of the raking. The first few times are not so bad, but the 10th time you have raked the front yard, it starts to get old...

That little plaid shirt is THE CUTEST! Seriously, I love it! I have been searching for a plaid shirt for myself but I'm yet to find one. I also love the fall and my favourite things about it are the leaves, the cool crisp mornings, pumpkin lattes, scarves and boots -- such a cliche but it's true and I love it all! haha

That little plaid shirt on Henry is too cute, I love it! :) That salsa sounds really different, I'm definitely intrigued now. I wish I had a Trader Joe's around here!

Have a great weekend Lauren!
