on scarves, boots, and chai tea lattes

I am ready for Fall.

It's 95 degrees today, but the heat index is making it feel like 110. To beat the heat, we have stayed in the A/C for most of the day, but D and I did venture out to the public pool for a little bit. I have no idea what I was thinking. It is Saturday, after all. It's like all the nice, respectful, quiet people hit the pool during the week, and on Saturdays, the hoodlums come out of hiding and try to do cannonballs on your baby.


We have our annual vacation to the Outer Banks with my in-laws in less than 2 weeks, and I could not be more excited. It's crazy to think that this time three years ago, Mike and I got engaged!

And then on Wednesday, we'll celebrate our 2 year wedding anniversary, and Saturday is baby D's 8 month birthday!! August is a good month for us :)

 We always go on our family vacation the last week of August, so in a weird way, vacation has started to symbolize the start of Fall for me. One last week of summer shenanigans, then we get home and it's time for Halloween. Kind of.

I am dreaming of breaking out my (extensive) scarf collection, warm chai tea lattes on a brisk day, and some awesome new riding boots. I cannot even begin to put my excitement about D's first Halloween into words. We've started perusing costumes and coming up with ideas, because I really want to do a family theme costume. Everything has been sooo over done (thanks Pinterest) that I'm struggling to come up with an original idea. I wanted to do something that he would be into, but so far the only thing I can tell you decisively that he is a fan of is The Lorax (he literally watched the entire thing, like, did not look away) and the toy that looks like an iPod that makes noise excessively. And while the Lorax is an actual costume possibility, it is NOT. CUTE. At all. It's actually kind of scary.

Not a plethora of ideas coming from D's favorites, at this point! So I guess I'll keep brainstorming.

I'm also super excited for new cool-weather outfits for D! I'm kind of dying over this fox-themed collection from Carter's. It doesn't get much cuter than that!! I'm not sure there's much cuter in this world than a baby in boots and a beanie. I can't wait to go shopping!

Just as soon as the temperature drops below sweltering.

Happy Saturday!

  1. The end of August is the best time to go on vacation to the beach! The weather is beautiful (not to hot) and it's hardly crowded! Also, on the same page as far as fall goes!
