It’s fall, ya’ll! Cue all the apples, hot tea, comfy sweaters and Fall Harvest on the Hallmark Channel.
I’m hoping that this weekend will bring a mix of productivity and relaxation. We plan on registering for Baby Watson tomorrow (pray for Big Guy’s sanity and patience) and then Sunday we’ll be watching football (and a Hallmark movie). No big plans and that is perfectly fine by me. The rest of our fall is pretty busy so I’m going to enjoy every low-key moment possible. I hope your weekend is full of things that make you happy!
Favorite Decor: Orange and Blue Fall Tablescape. I adore this color combo, obviously (it’s the colors of our living room). But it’s not “overly fall” and dripping with cheesy pumpkins and seasonal signs.
Favorite Cozy Honeycrisp Apple Pandowdy. How delicious does this dessert look? Drooling. And a “pandowdy” is apparently an apple pie that’s cooked in a skillet.
Favorite Comfy: JCrew Leopard Sweatshirt. I could live in this top along with jeans and cute flats. I’m clearly having a leopard moment because I’m obsessed with leopard driving shoes, too.
Favorite Bite: One-Pan BBQ Ranch Chicken Gnocchi. I’m obsessed with this flavor combination. Not only that, it looks super easy and you only dirty up one pan.
Favorite “THIS IS ME”: Being Organized is A Gift I Give Myself and Other People. YES! AMEN! YES! “A lot of people think they are too busy and simply don’t have the time to get organized, but…I don’t have time to not be organized! I’d rather take 20 minutes to get my life in order now than spend 45 minutes looking for my glasses prescription, 10 minutes on the phone with my eye doctor, and three days waiting until I can find the half-hour to go pick up a new copy of it.”
Favorite Intrigued: Slow-Roasted Sweet Potatoes with Garlic Labneh. By slow roasting the potatoes, you bring out the sweetness and they become incredibly tender. Top with a tangy labneh full of pungent garlic and I’m sold.
Favorite “Appy” Hour: Blackberry and Lemon Mascarpone Crostini. Beautiful yet simple and perfect for almost any occasion.
Favorite Wanderlust: These Destinations Should Be On Your Fall Travel List. From Boston to California to China, this list has a little something for everyone.
Favorite Mocktails: Brilliant Non-Alcoholc Cocktails Everyone Loves. Because sometimes when you’re pregnant, you want a little celebration drink (whether you’re celebrating something big or small). And La Croix doesn’t count.
