Ahhhh. I feel like I can breathe a nice big sigh of relief that fall is here. Fall is most definitely my favorite season and I wait with baited breath every year for it to arrive. But especially this year. After such a damn hot summer, fall couldn’t get here fast enough for me. And it arrived in style, with cool, crisp and clear mornings. My favorite.
Let’s get to today’s favorites!
I’m still on cloud 9 over these oatmeal chocolate chip cookies. I may or may not be making them this weekend again (for my dad who’s babysitting for us, not for just me of course), along with some new pumpkin recipes I’ll be trying.
Favorite fall activities
Little A and I created a fall bucket list with all the things she wants to do. And I created a mommy and daddy bucket list with all the things I want the hubs to help me do. 🙂 But our list can go until winter. As long as it’s all done by January I’ll be happy.
We did the fair last week and had a blast, so that has been crossed off our bucket list. Little A’s preschool field trip to the pumpkin patch is next week, so that will cross off one pumpkin patch trip off our list. We visit multiple each year. I’m really looking forward to carving pumpkins and making Halloween cookies.
Favorite fall transition piece
I love scarves. They are my absolute favorite accessory. My collection has grown beyond recognition now, so I probably need to spend some time going through them, but I’m always on the lookout for a good deal on a scarf. And with the cooler mornings and warmer afternoons, scarves are the perfect piece to wear all day when it gets too hot for a jacket.
I finally cut my hair! You guys, I haven’t cut my hair in almost 3 years, except the occasional trim. But it had just gotten so heavy and weighed down and was just blah. So I cut about 8 inches off! At first I wanted to go really short, but my girlfriend who does my hair knows me too well to let me do something so drastic right away. I just feel so light now!
“When you ask me to dance like Channing Tatum you’re not really setting me up for success.” – The hubs
Yep, he said that. After we watched Magic Mike (yes, my husband watched MM with me. He’s the best.). Of course I asked him to dance like Channing, because hello, the man’s got some moves! Instead he just sort of stood there as I silent laughed for 5 minutes.
I hope you have a wonderful weekend! See you back here next week for an exciting announcement!
Bahahaha! K! That face when you cut your hair (Kevin did the same when I cut mine a few weeks ago) and the quote. Hilarious! I think your hair looks great, Tiffany! Very pretty! I can’t believe that was with 8 inches gone! I bought a scarf this week from Nordstrom Rack. I want a heavier, plaid one like those though. It so doesn’t get very cold here in SA though – it’s even pretty different than Dallas.
Have a great weekend, my friend!
I definitely need to make those cookies this weekend! And your hair looks awesome! If I don’t find someone to cut my hair soon, I may have to take the scissors to it myself. It’s driving me bonkers. 😉
FALL WEATHER!!!!!! Girl I am so excited about it, and I’m ready to bust out my blanket scarf.
I may make your cookies this weekend. I’ve been thinking about them since you posted your recipe!
Your hair looks great girl – it always feels nice to have a cut!! Love the bucket list you guys made! xo, Biana –BlovedBoston
Those oatmeal chocolate chip cookies look DELISH! And loving your fall bucket list gurlie – hoping you get to conquer it all 🙂
Happy Friday <3
those oatmeal raisin cookies look so good! x,kenz
Hooray for Fall! I am so excited it’s finally here. Your cookie recipe looks like a good way to ring in the season.
And PUMPKIN recipes too!??? You must REALLY love us, ha!! ha!! I can’t wait to see and try the pumpkin recipes that you create and post.
I always wondered why you didn’t wear your hair down that often in photos, but now I understand. I get it! My hair is super long too and I have it in a bun or pony tail often. It gets too heavy after awhile. I didn’t realize your hair was so long. My son always wants my hair down and long. Typical boy / guy thing, right!? lol 😉 He is so funny about that.
Also, great pic of you above. Your hair looks so pretty!!
Happy Autumn!! It’s my favorite too. xoxo
Your hair looks gorgeous! I cannot believe you could go that long. I am so jealous. I go four months and my ends look horrible! I love your fall bucket list for your kiddo and your husband!
Annie- All Things Big and Small
3 years? Whoa! I hope you donated it 🙂
I love that you made a bucket list! So fun 🙂
Your hair looks great and I bet it cuts drying time in half! My husband made the same face when I cut mine… Maybe it’s a guy thing?
Scarves are my happy place, too! I’m saving up for a cashmere infinity scarf for this year – a luxurious scarf should be in everyone’s closet for Fall, right?
Love your new cut!!!! I am almost there as well so ready to be free of all that maintenance!
