The last guest poster I have for you is the super sweet and stylish Christina from The New Mrs. Christina and I have been blog friends for a while now, and she's let me take over her blog a couple of times while she's been away, so today is her turn to take over my space with some of her Fall Favorites!
Hi everyone and Happy Weekend! Who is ready for 5pm?! I know I am - not much beats a summer weekend and it's hard to believe this is the last one before Labor Day!
I'm Christina and I blog about a little mix of everything over at The New Mrs. I'm happy to be guest posting for Jenn today while she soaks up some sun at the beach and enjoys these final summer days.
Let's get right into it, shall we?
Anyone who is familiar with my blog knows that I love a little theme - today I'm thinking all things fall as well as what exciting is ahead this season. I'm completely torn on my feelings - SO excited for fall, SO sad to see summer go… I think I'll have the mindset of September being part summer/part fall - now that is a win win.
Here's a little peek into some favorites I'm excited for this upcoming season...
I'm not sure about everyone else but in my house this summer we've been all about the grill and BBQ's which have been lovely but I'm excited to get into some of my cooler weather comfort meals and bust out that crockpot more often! After finding this recipe I am completely craving soups.
NFL Preseason is underway and we are just eight days away from college football season. EIGHT. I cannot wait - there is no excitement than that of game day and tailgates. Having football back just screams "fall" to me. It also makes our weekend afternoons a little more interesting because football is ALWAYS on in the background. However, if Penn State is on and we're not at the game, then our day is planned around it and Sundays basically revolve on the time of the Cowboys/Eagles games
*that's right my husband and I are fans of opposing teams in the division… same goes for baseball season too ;)
I know it's not going to be cool enough for these looks for at least a few more weeks - maybe even longer but I'm loving the idea of fall hats, scarves (always!) and some layering.
I love that for much of the fall decor (not including Halloween and such) it can last from September through Thanksgiving. The colors are easy and there are so many subtle accents to add into your home.
Margaritas? Apple Cider? Why not try combining the two - this drink looks like it could be a hit to try at any gathering.
That fall leads to it getting darker earlier - I dread those nights where we come home from work and it's dark right away - no long nights on the deck, no walks as the sun's setting - just time inside as it's dark outside.
Thank you so much, Jenn, for having me! This was fun and I hope everyone will pop on over to my blog sometime to say hello :)
Thanks Christina! Now that my summer vacation is coming to an end, this post definitely has me looking towards Fall and all of the awesome things that come along with it!
I'm going to add one more favorite to this post--today is the 4 year date-i-versary of MG's and my first date at Cava Mezze! I can't believe it's already been 4 years, and now we're married with a home of our own to start our family in!
