I think we can all agree that Fall is already going way too fast! I literally blinked and September was over. But I must admit I’m excited for next month, lots of fun activities going on, and last year I was somewhat robbed of my October because of my surgery recuperation. So, let’s embrace Fall y’all and get to favorites!


Side note before I get going, not a favorite but glad to have it over with is Stella's surgery to get spayed. She had it done on Tuesday and seems to be recouping nicely. This pic was on the way home from the Vet.

1. Family Fun Day

What a joy last weekend was! I had been thinking for the past few weeks that I would have all three of my boys in one spot at the same time and we were going to do family photos since it may be the only time our one son was home from Baltimore before the holidays. However, our youngest was unable to come home due to an important exam and car trouble and we weren’t able to finagle anything soon enough. But so great having a day with dad and I to buzz around the lower Michigan area and what fun we had we tried several new places which was a blast.

The most fun of the day was an old bowling alley that they have refurbished and turn into not only bowling but a hard cider taproom called Peat's Cider Social! It was so awesome for Mr. Nine and I because it was like walking back into the 80s. Bowling sucked of course but boy did we have a good time!


Then the next morning they got to have breakfast with Giga!

2. In My Element 
It’s no secret I love me some mums and pumpkins and this day at one of our local farmers markets, I was in my element. All the mums were blooming, (although I buy them closed to keep them longer) and it was a beautiful day to snap some cute pictures in my Gibson Look mock neck luxe top! The sleeves and neck ruffly details are so cute and I just love this color! Great seasonal transition Top HERE

3. Cozy Earth

All my favorite brands today! It’s no secret that I am a big fan of Cozy Earth and own lots of their pajamas, loungewear, and bedding!! This week they launched two new colors in their bamboo sheets and are they ever beautiful and LUXE! Navy, which I got in an olive green shade. also, I cannot believe I never had one of their fabulous robes! It is so soft and flows on the skin just so sweetly just like all of their garments.

4. Chunky Sweater

The Free Assembly line at Walmart is one of my favorites and it has been touted as one of the best well-made lines there and very equivalent to couple big name brands like Madewell. This Chunky Sweater is a cozy Fall favorite, and the cool color way is unexpected. There are some other great options as well.

5. Misc. Fun


BOGO BABY! Let me tell you, I love these BOOTS, under $45 and even less with the sale going on this week! Then, I shared it over on TikTok and it got almost 110,000 views, people love these boots, they keep selling out but they keep restocking, they come in five colors!
