Five on Friday...Fall Rounds

Friday, September 19, 2014

Amen to this! It's been in the mid to upper 70s this week in Nashville and I am itching for more fall to come our way... bring on scarves, booties, hot apple cider, and pumpkin goodness from everywhere. Here are this week's five little tidbits and goodies:
One. I read about these Mini Apple Cider Pound Cakes in the latest issue of Southern Living and I am rounding up all the ingredients to make them ASAP. Apple cider anything makes me a happy happy girl!
Two. I'm not much of a hat girl, but I am swooning over this one at Nordstrom. Call me crazy, but is there any way I can maybe pull this off?? I need some diversity for fall outfits and the price on this one makes me feel like I can "sample" the goods and if it doesn't work I haven't made a crazy expensive purchase.
Three. Speaking of fall activities, my Aunt sent me a link with all sorts of fun events and adventures for the next few months in and around Nashville and I am so excited to partake in some of this with the girls and Jeff...hello pumpkin patch, apple picking, Bell Buckle craft fair, Oktoberfest, and anything else we manage to cram in.
Four. New Front Door Decor! I'm scouting everywhere I can to find a fun new fall wreath for our front door...my gosh I wish I was craftier in this department because it's so dang expensive to find one I love. Anybody find a great option I should know about??
Five. When I was searching for a fun surprise to bring the girls back from Arizona, I might have stumbled across matching PINK Hunter wellies for fall and winter...not such a "local" gift, but necessary nonetheless, right? Caroline won't take hers off and Carson seems to think they taste good on her gums while she is teething (molars are coming in...yay :/). Now my predicament is I might have to jump on the pink bandwagon and get some of the Packable/AKA Tour Boots-anybody have these?

  1. Love the front door ideas! I have the glossy red hunters on my list for A when they come back in stock. Which also makes me want to buy a yellow raincoat :)

  2. I LOVE those huge wooden tags for the front door!! I am SO not crafty, but I think I could pull these off? I am dying over mini Hunter boots! I have a black pair and love them. And actually like when it rains now, so I can wear mine. :) Happy Friday!!
