What I’m Reminiscing About:

Our vacation to the Caribbean earlier this month! Check out my posts here if you missed them!

What I’m Loving:

My fall decor… Check out the full post here!

Also, I’ve said it before but my kindle! I am reading a lot more since I got it and I love it. Plus I believe it is on sale on amazon right now!

What we’ve been up to:

This month of September we…

Went on a cruise to Mexico!

Decorated for Fall

Watched Football

Miguel Went back to Mexico for work for nine days while I was at home getting things done.

We watched our Iowa Hawkeyes.

What I’m Dreading:

I can’t think of anything right now!

What I’m Working on:

My 9-5 job has been hectic (I am a software programmer) so I have worked a lot there. But currently I have been focusing on creating more of a routine for the blog to be more efficient and I have also been cleaning out my computer and organizing photos and documents better!

What I’m Excited About:

October! Pumpkin Patch, Halloween, Leaves, Sweaters, more football 🙂

What I’m Watching/Reading:

I’ve read a lot lately! I finished the last book in the Crazy Rich Asians Trilogy, Rich People Problems. I also read The Case for Jamie (Also a Series) and The Grave Tender (A super quick read but also very sad).

In the mornings, I am working my way through all of the Fixer Upper episodes. I also caught up to season 8 on Modern Family (I have all the seasons on DVD) and we just started Ozark on Netflix! And of course College Football!

What I’m Listening To:

I’m back on the Dear Evan Hansen Soundtrack – I am waiting to buy tickets to see it next year!

What I’m Wearing:

I did a huge round up of Fall Fashion a couple weeks back that you can see here. Including this number:

I also love the cheetah trend too! The sweater is form last year but the booties, necklace, jeans are all new too.

And then these pants are the best work pants ever! Seriously. They are from Express and that’s where I buy pretty much all of my pants because I love them, but these are new and different! So stretchy but still look professional. Great comfort for all day, I didn’t want to rip them off as soon as I got home. My new favorite pants, for sure. I usually wait to buy Express pants when they are doing 40 or 50 percent off or buy one get one. I never pay full price! But the quality and comfort on these are so so worth it.

Chambray and Necklace linked as well.

You can also shop my closet here – with all of my links!

What I’m doing this weekend:

Celebrating our one year anniversary and attending an Oktoberfest party – all in Chicago!

What I’m looking forward to next month: 

I think I may have mentioned it… but October is the best! I can’t wait to go to the pumpkin Patch and for Halloween!

What else is new:

I would love if you could take my reader survey on my post here! I’ve been blogging for two years now and I would love your feedback!

Bonus: Favorite Way to Eat Pumpkin:

Definitely Pumpkin Bars with Cream Cheese frosting or Pumpkin chocolate chip muffins!

Thanks for catching up!
