Around Here

            It's been a full-on Fall freak show around here complete with baked goods, excessive candy corn consumption (Mom, how bad is your stomach ache right now?  Yeah, mine too.), and the purchasing of the most adorable and hilariously funny dinosaur Halloween costume in all the land.  For the Cooper baby of course.

What it's looked like according to my iphone...

To-die-for candy corn pretzel bark...recipe found here.

            And now if you'll excuse me I'm off to jump in a pile of leaves on this gorgeous Fall Friday...and then to pack for next weeks Bermudian getaway...and a weekend at Fox Point after that.  And after that I'll jump on my unicorn and fly over that giant rainbow over there.  Ok, ok that last part was a stretch but things are pretty happy around here these days.

Just this...

Sending you some puppy kisses on this Monday night.


             Right now, I'm holding my breath.  Why?  Because I don't want to miss it.  And I don't want it to slip away and all of a sudden we're left with month of cold and gray that is a D.C. winter.  And I'm guessing that since the Old Man was relatively kind to us last year, this winter is going to be a doozey.  But enough with that winter talk.  Let's get back to talking Fall.  I believe I can say that it has officially arrived and I am loving it.  Opening the windows first thing in the morning and leaving them that way until bedtime...just trying to breathe in as much of that Fall air as I can.  Putting nutmeg and cinnamon in my coffee because it finally feels like that time of year again (ok, so I really could put that stuff in my coffee in the middle of a July heat wave but that just feels kind of sacrilegious, no?).  Watching eagerly for that first hint of red and orange in the trees around my neighborhood.  And anticipating a weekend with friends at my favorite place at the height of the season.  Oh man, this is gonna be good.

I Need This

I make a living dissecting other people's speech so it only makes sense that I would find proper use of I, me, and their/there/they're all kinds of sexy.  Find these little syntactically correct babies right here.

P.S.  I would also like to add a t-shirt that says "Helmets are hot" to this collection.  They are, okay?

It's Here! (well, almost)

            With the last official weekend of summer behind us it is about time for me to start gushing about my obsession with Fall, dontcha think?  Nevermind that I still sleep with a fan on in my room and last night my roommates and I hosted an impromptu backyard BBQ, Fall is a-coming and I am counting the days.  I cannot wait for cozy sweaters, cool breezes, changing colors, and my own version of back to school with an exciting fresh start (details to come soon!) in October.

Here are a few things I'm currently lusting after for fall...

Hope you're having the happiest Friday...I'm off to buy some Mums!
