Oh, Great Pumpkin, where are you?

Oh the joys of living less than 2 miles from a Publix- and having a sidewalk conveniently line the path all the way there. I have made it a goal of mine to walk to Publix (and back) at least 5 times a week until we move out. That's 2 weeks, 10 days, 30 miles. More than I've walked in the past year, I'm sure. Tomorrow will be day four, and I'm already looking forward to stopping at Yogurt Co. on the way. Austin and I stopped yesterday, and it is for sure my new favorite frozen yogurt shop. White Chocolate Mousse frozen yogurt. Guys. This is serious.

On our first Publix run walk, I treated myself to new nail polish- Wicked. The color is called Wicked by Essie- I think it's time to pop in "It's the Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown" and chow down on some Candy Corn. It's August... please? Turn the air conditioning off, open the windows, and curl up with a blanket... Oh fall, please come soon. Yankee Candle seems to think it's time. I picked up these little guys last week. First cool day of the season and these suckers will be lit in our kitchen, melting faster than a popsicle in the summer.
Pumpkin, Banana Nut Bread, and Apple Cider, oh my! 

Popsicles aren't the only things that've been melting this summer. Austin's rosy cheeks have just about had it with this season. We were going stir crazy this afternoon in the apartment, so we went outside for a little picnic fun. We lasted about 20 minutes before the bees and sun became too much.
After Labor day, wearing white is supposedly a huge faux pas. I don't really follow that rule, but I am definitely using it as an excuse to break out the fall wreath. Who's with me??


  1. I love the Great Pumpkin! I cannot wait for Fall!

  2. I love fall scents!! I can't wait to decorate for fall, wear jeans & boots, and have some hot apple cider! I normally love summer but being pregnant in this heat is making me wish extra hard for fall!

    2. I couldn't even imagine being (super) pregnant in this heat! I was only a few months pregnant last summer, so it wasn't too bad

  3. I love that nail polish :) aaand fall scents, yum! Warm apple-y scents are my favorite. I also went for a run that turned into a walk today, and I decided that as long as we're getting out there and moving we deserve a bravo! Our walks will be so much more pleasant when Fall comes

  4. We miss you and soo looking forward to visiting you in September!
