Hope you guys are having a swell September so far! Mine has been uneventful but I am so glad it is starting to cool down some! I was getting real tired of all that summer heat, and I have some cuuuute fall clothes I want to break out 🙂
This month I went up to Paradise, CA to visit my “fake” grandparents. They technically aren’t related to me at all, but they were my temporary neighbors after the brutal Camp Fire last year. All the houses on their street burned down except for theirs, but because the street was inhabitable (no water, major smoke damage) they briefly moved to my apartment complex while their home was fixed up. We forged such an amazing friendship and connection that I consider them my grandparents! Now they’re back home, so I drove about 90 minutes up to Paradise to visit them. We had a nice lunch and shopped around Chico, which I’d never been to before (hello, I was never invited to cool college parties!).
And like most of you, I have already put out my Halloween decorations! I can’t help it – I just get too excited about holidays I get to decorate for. And if you know me, you know on November 1st I will officially get my Christmas decorations out. Crazy, yes, but it makes me so happy and only a few weeks of Christmas decor (if I decorated on December 1st) just isn’t enough time!
As usual, here are a list of links, products and recipes I’m loving this month! Feel free to leave your favorite things in the comments!
Talk about YUM.
Chicken pot pie is one of my comfort foods, and this one looks amazing!
Comfort food at its finest! Can’t wait to try.
Love this copycat OG chicken gnocchi soup recipe.
Picked up some overalls and am loving them! You can’t beat the price.
Just got a pair of these jeans and I’m OBSESSED. Even more comfortable than leggings (!!! I swear!)
Teddy coats are SO IN right now and I am loving this one! Inexpensive, oversize lapel, and super cozy.
Got one of these for a minor drain fly problem I’ve been having and it has helped SO much! Highly recommend.
When it comes to books, I am reading this one and I’m loving it!!
I never thought I’d become a science non-fiction book person, but I totally am and this sounds SO interesting!
Also looking forward to this gripping work of non-fiction. So intriguing.
This one also looks great – hilarious but also poignant.
I’m wearing jeans now (!!) and I am LOVING this belt. Comfy, cute and edgy.
Needing some more barware and am lusting after these snifters!
How cute is this?!
And my monthly “splurge” where if I had the money to blow, I’d blow it on this item: these amazing chunky Dr. Martens! I am a huge combat boot fanatic and these fit the bill! Plus, they zip on which is so much easier than lacing up the traditional Docs. Love them!!
Have a super awesome rest of September!
