Happy Fall, Y’all!

I must confess I have a slight obsession with Fall. Being raised in Louisville, KY we actually had a “real” Fall there. Today’s high is in the mid 80’s but that feels cool for south Alabama. So, I’m going for it… fall shoes and pumpkin muffins! Mmm! The muffins taste & smell even better than they look… especially smothered in cream cheese. And the shoes feel even better than they look. I’m a flip flop/Chaco girl and these provide some much needed support after a long summer of no support!

My friend Tami is having a c-section this morning! In fact, sweet Mary Grace may already be here! I know she’d love it if you’d send up a prayer for them!

    Oh I can smell the muffins here in N.C. We do celebrate 4 seasons and fall is arriving quickly….60 degrees last night after a very hot summer.
    Praying for your friend!

    Love the shoes and the muffins look tasty – would you like to share the recipe???? I love fall too – I’ve actually been getting up at 4:30 am to run a few days a week – knowing it’s cool and brisk outside is my motivation!!!

    Happy Fall to you, too, friend!

    Cute shoes. I too am a chaco/flipflop/dansko girl. Do pass on the details of those shoes. I think I might like a pair in black and brown.

    AH! Since reading, bebe has been begging for your muffins and cream cheese. Yesterday, I couldn’t make it home from the grocery store without snacking on my new jar of pickles. Today, I think it’s gonna be a pumpkin muffin. 🙂

    I LOVE fall. I actually fill my house with fall scented air fresheners (I love the ones from White Barn Candle Co.)several months before the arrival of fall. I like to “pretend” it’s fall when I’m in the house. I made pumpkin muffins from a mix a couple of weeks ago, but have been wanting to make homemade ones. Are yours homemade? If so, you have to post the recipe.

    I don’t know if you remember me, but we had some mutual friends while at Auburn. Our husbands used to be friends, as well. (Tell Justin that Ben said “hello”.) I last talked to you at Chris and Kara’s wedding when we were both pg. Congrats on the little boy!
