Celebrating Autumn

Happy Friday!! Today I'm linking up to the massive Oct. 28 Follower Fest, so I'm going to share some things that have really made my autumn enjoyable (despite the not-so-cool weather here in Vegas).

This fall, I carved pumpkins with some friends. But of course!


It was a Harry Potter themed carving, with my new Time Turner necklace, courtesy of Sarah from A Lost Feather. I'm such a nerd. Oh well. Deal with it.


Though it may not be very cool outside just yet, I've still been loving snuggling up in a warm bed with kitty, Anya and a great read (Matched!).


Speaking of snuggling in beds, I've also been wearing a lot of pajamas. Gotta stay cozy!


And last, but not least, I have been baking quite a bit this season! I made my first pie (pumpkin) and tried lots of other recipes. And also documented it with my pretty instax camera!



What is autumn without some hot chocolate??



What have you done this fall? Do you have any traditions that are a must? Please share!

Thanks for stopping by!

This year is our first married fall together just like yours. We went to a farmer's market, bought a pumpkin and carved it, made chili, and ate homemade bread and honey butter we bought.

giveaway!

I love this time of year! I love your pumpkin! I almost did a Harry Potter pumpkin, but I ended up doing an owl (which could be fitting, too) because we call our home The Owlery. We are going to a corn maze tonight and dressing up this weekend!

Thanks for commenting on my blog today, reinventing the ordinary. I'm new at this and the comments mean a lot. You really have a nice site. I also read your "spending freeze"...so true. Since I've started blogging and pinning....my want list grows. Way too easy to order on line. One thing I really like about this time of year is looking forward to my family coming home and spending time with them. My puppy Blake is truly my empty nest child...but I miss my kids. Come back by.
