I am so very grateful for Friday!!! I really feel like September is moving way too fast! I feel wiped out from this week and although Saturday looks great weather wise, it is going to be in the high 80's and I want a crisp Fall Day but no complaints. Bring on Friday Night football, Notre Dame football, pizza and you might find me baking up some pumpkin concoctions because.......
1. Pumpkin Spice is Upon Us!
Yes, Pumpkin Spice Season is upon us! I've been having my fill because on Monday I've got a treat for you...I'm reviewing a bunch of popular pumpkin spice products. I added this one here today as is a Home Goods find that I had never seen before. I'd give it 4/5 pumpkins! 


Yeah, I will not be reviewing pumpkin tacos, promise!!

2. Bunk Room

I'm so excited to say we are having a bunk room similar to this in the new house! While our boys will love hanging out in there when they're all home, we actually have eyes on the future as the cool grandparents (someday) where there are super cool bunks. 
Oh and blogger peeps welcome!! I'll make you brunch!!

And my greatest deal of the week: I knew I wanted navy and white striped comforters for the bunks. How excited was I to get all 4 of them online at Target for $60 total!!! That's $15 apiece and they are SUPER soft!

3. Week's Attire
Old Navy dress and Cardigan, Kohl's necklace

Kohl's necklace and top, Steve Madden flats

Boutique top, Francesca's Necklace

4. Floral Tunic
What do you wear when it's 67 degrees and it's a transition! Why a floral tunic, lightweight Cardi, leggings and boots. Will repeat this look with lots of other pieces all Fall! 

5. Misc. Fun
Day Date
So as you know last Saturday, 9/9 was a day date for us to celebrate our first date and summer coming to a close. We opted for a noon breakfast and a car show/band at our favorite southern Michigan winery. I had the BEST cocktail: Bourbon, Apple Cider, Ginger Ale with Fall good. Poor Mr. Nine started to feel ill so we ended the day around 5. Thank goodness he was better Sunday and I am happy to have him home after a business trip this week.

Man, do I love this show, it'll make you go "whoa" but it's so so good!! Finishing up Season 1 binge and cannot wait for Season 2!

Fabric Pumpkins 
And since I obviously have pumpkin on the brain, not only do I love to eat it, but I love to decorate with them! Just look at hose CUTE fabric pumpkins. This gal has the cutest things in her Etsy shop.

And the most delightful smelling lotion ever!!!! your hands smell like FALL!!!!

  8. Those bunks are going to be soooooo much fun! The comforters are perfect too. It's too bad Mr. Nine wasn't feeling 100% for your date, but I'm glad he bounced back quickly. It seems there is something like that going around our office too. Luckily I don't spend a ton of time there, so it hasn't caught me yet! Have a fabulous weekend!!

  9. Oh my goodness that bunk room is terrific! Those comforters were such a good deal. Oh how I wish we had cooler weather here, even the 80's would be a welcome change around here! I can't wait to wear a cardigan and boots. I'm getting excited to see what kinds of yummy PS goodies you have in store for us! Your day date last weekend looked fabulous, so sorry Mr. Nine was feeling ill and glad it was short lived, especially if he had to travel. Hope you all have a wonderful weekend beautiful friend!

  10. That bunk room is SO cool-- yes yes yes, we need a blogger retreat to your place ;) Day dates are my favorite and that drink sounds so perfect for Fall. Hope Mr. Nine returns safely from his trip and you both have a great weekend! xo!

  11. Yay for all the pumpkin spice! I'm going to have to check out the hand lotion. How amazing is that?! Love the idea of the bunk beds, too! Such a great use of space and I love the stairs in the center. Have a great weekend, Andrea!
