Fall Favorites

Happy Friday! This week has been a week. Nick has been in San Diego (lucky, lucky guy) and I've been holding down the fort here at home. Which is no joke with a 3 month old and a wild dog. This was my first time home alone with the baby and of course the first time was for an entire week! Haddie also decided this was the week to roll over (yay!), but that meant dropping the swaddle and leaving her arms out in her sleepsack. She did better than expected, but wanted to stay up and party after her middle of the night feedings so I am tired! Thankfully Nick is coming home tonight and I can't wait. Can you believe we're already a third of the way through October? Now that we're officially into the fall swing of things, here are a few of my favorites for this season!

I've been obsessed with this Joules rain coat ever since Ally shared it. It's perfect for fall & spring and would look so cute with my Hunter boots. My all time favorite dark polish is Essie's After School Boy Blazer, I have it on right now! I'm super intrigued by this Arcona Pumpkin body lotion. I'm a huge Arcona fan (love their toner pads), so I think I need to try this. It has great reviews. Nothing says fall like a cozy blanket, a cup full of a warm beverage, and snuggling on the couch with a good book. The Year of Cozy is full of recipes, crafts and activities - yes please that sounds perfect.

This weekend we're off to a good friends wedding which will be so fun, but it's also my first night away from Haddie so I'm a little sad/anxious/all the feelings (so many feelings since becoming a mom!). But I know it will be good for us and she'll get some great grandparent time in. And hopefully on Sunday we can get to decorating our porch and getting some apple cider and donuts! Easily the best part of fall anyway ;)
