  1. So much to comment on! Love your early fall outfits! So sweet to take food to the hospital and just to visit really helps pass the time I think. I pray that they stay in a bit longer and that all goes smoothly. No one does a fall porch like you do! I plan to buy my pumpkins and mums next week but it will be in the mid 80s so I hope they last!

  2. So good to see what you are up to! Praying for those grandbabies. You are the best grandma ever with all the yummy food you are making for the parents. I adore all your outfits here and can't wait to see your fall porch.


  3. Eeeek! Babies in the next two weeks! I can't wait to see your fall porch, but of course I am anxious for those babies too.

  4. So much fall goodness in this post! I'd love to see Michigan in the fall, I know that's gorgeous! How exciting to be on baby watch....and I feel the same about the last quarter of the year. It goes too quickly! This is my favorite time of year and I just want to savor it all as much as I can!

  5. So exciting about the babies! Happy fall!

  6. So excited for the girls to arrive! Sending prayers for safe deliveries! We really enjoyed Safe. Love all of your chic outfits!

  7. You are giving off movie star vibes in your fashion photos- both the outfits and you look Hollywood worthy ;). I will check out the recipe links you provided. I need some dinner inspo and... caramel corn, lol. Good luck getting things ready for the baby girls. So exciting!!

  8. It's the perfect time for making soup and your recipes look so good. Good luck with the babies coming soon and I love all of your outfits.

  9. Your recipes all sound amazing- lucky kids! So exciting- can't wait for baby news :)

  10. I bet you're so excited for the grandbabies!!
    My mom has been watching that Virgin River too.

  11. I just cannot believe they are almost here!! Exciting times!!

  12. Aww, I loved this post so much, Andrea! Your porch from 2019 was gorgeous, and I can't wait to see what this year's porch looks like - it will be fabulous, I know that much! :) All of your recipes look so delicious and I need a cup of that veggie soup right now, haha. It is so exciting that your grandbabies will be here soon, I feel like you just announced it, time sure does fly!

    Hope you have a wonderful rest of your day, my friend! :)

    Make Life Marvelous

  13. You guys have so much to look forward to. All the food looks so yummy and the outfits on point (as usual!). I couldn't get back into Virgin River last season so now I'm really behind. I remember The Road..that was gripping and a great book if I recall correctly. Hope you're having a great week!

  14. I can't believe the twins are almost here. Praying for a safe delivery and your whole family!

    All of your recipes look SO delicious! I need to make these caramel bars again sometime soon that you shared on here ages ago. I hope your trip to see the fall foliage goes nicely and enjoy a fall drink for me. Those grand babies are going to be so blessed to have such a sweet and caring grandma like you!


  16. I love fall! I haven't decorated yet as I am hosting a birthday party next week and don't want to switch my yellow accents till after. But I am ready. It is getting cooler and soon we will be able to wear some layers!

  17. I can tell how excited you are about the babies' arrival. Thanks to you dear Andrea I added 2 more books to my TBR list. Have a wonderful weekend.

  18. What a fantastic Fall porch. Hardly anyone seems to do anything like that here in the UK. If I had a porch I would.
    I love all of the comfort food at this time of year. That beef, vegetable soup looks so good and I love those Halloween mugs.

  19. Great post! I haven't started watching the latest season of Virgin River but plan to start it soon.

  20. We've got our fall foliage trip next weekend...already! I feel just like you that it's ALREADY going too fast. But I'm gonna enjoy every second of it! Baby waytch - how fun!!



  21. I just started reading The Road with one of my students! It's interesting so far! And I made one of your comfort fall recipes Carmel Cider Pumpkin cake this week. It won't last long!

  22. Look at all of those gorgeous leaves! The leaves haven't started turning here yet... we usually peak in early November and I'm already looking forward to it!

  23. So many gorgeous fall pieces and decor!

    I hope you are having a great week so far!
