Second of all. It's Friday. And you all know what that means. Another Friday. Another fun link up. Oh hey, Friday! So, let's share our 5 for this week, shall we? And because I literally can't think about anything else, today is going to be all things fall...Fall, fall, fall, fall, fall. Fall.
1. A Whiff of Fall
I found my way into the Bath & Body Works near me this week. And headed straight for the 'pumpkin' area of the store. Yes, they had an entire area dedicated to their pumpkin scents. They haven't brought out the rest of their fall line yet (the rest debut next week, so we know I'll be going back), so they were really highlighting the pumpkin ones since they are the first to arrive. However, I went for the pumpkin anyways, so I was pretty excited to see it all on display in all its orange, spicy glory. I walked away with these little gems, and can't wait to start lighting them up this weekend.
The hubs and I pulled through the Dunkin Donuts drive-through last night. And offhand, I asked if they happened to have their pumpkin donuts in yet. And they DID! Best. Night. Of. My. Life. I told the lady at the window that she'd made my life and she just laughed and laughed. Wish every problem in life could be solved with a pumpkin donut. I took a picture of our pretty box of sweets. I'll let you guess which ones are the pumpkin donuts (hint: they're absolutely not the ones in which a big bite has been taken. no ma'am. i would never do that...)
3. Fall Decorating
We've decided to go ahead and decorate our house for fall this weekend. Partly because we are fall obsessed. And partly because this is our last Saturday off together until the end of September (boo). Yes, I am aware that it is still technically August. However, September 1st is Monday. And once September arrives, it is fall. So, this Saturday it is. Anyone with me? Bueller? Bueller?
4. The Fall Wardrobe
I've worn my white pants once this week. And may try to get one more wear in before Labor Day. After that, they will be packed up until next spring. Along with my linen pants. Mint green jeans. White shoes. Flowery dresses and skirts. White leather handbag. And anything else that screams summer. While I'm not quite ready to do a complete closet 'switcheroo' (since it will likely stay very warm here until late September or early October), I am definitely ready to transition to a more fall-like wardrobe with darker colors and richer fabrics. So ready to toss the flip-flops in favor of boots, and start throwing scarves and cardigans on over tees and tanks. A fall wishlist to come in the next week or so.
5. The Fall Calendar
Our calendar is already starting to book up, as it does every year once the fall season (and holidays and such) start to approach. This year, especially since our time with B is so limited, I want to be very intentional about the activities that we take part in and the things we plan. I want to make the most of our time together, and make a lot of wonderful memories. Last year at this time, I was working full-time, Caleb was in daycare every day, and B was in San Antonio, Texas completing a one-moth orthopedic rotation out there. Though we don't get a lot of time together now, at least we aren't separated by several states this year. And I am ever so thankful to get to be at home with Caleb every day instead of rushing off to a job that I hate every day. God is good!

Hope that you all have a lovely weekend, and a very happy Labor Day holiday. See you in September!
