Five little things I loved this week:

Autumn Flavors

My daughter and I huddled as we walked towards the car, the wind sending a chill through our bones. I was wearing shorts, she was wearing a tank top. “Boy it feels like fall!” I remarked to her. “It is fall, mom.” she reminded me. Oh yes, duh. It really is. I may have not figured out the wardrobe, but my cooking has definitely taken a turn for the cozy. How about you? I want a big mug of Izy’s (Top with Cinnamon) Pumpkin Spice Drip Coffee. It would nicely with a slice of Valerie’s (Une Gamine dans la Cuisine) Rosemary Citrus Cake with Mascarpone-Honey Frosting. I would follow this up with Maria’s (Pink Patisserie) Winter Soup. And a nap (I can dream, can’t I?).

Candy Corn Jello Shots

There really are no more words. You just have to see this on That’s So Michelle. Plus there’s vodka involved.

A Field Guide to Procrastinators

I think I saw twenty pixel’s hilarious infograph via Nicole from Pinch My Salt, and I just chuckled. A lot. I am totally The Cleaner, how about you?

New Baby Smell Makes You Feel Drunk

Baby Smells. Yes, oh yes. I no longer can drink in the sweet smells of adorable baby, but I miss it so! And I completely agree with the research that confirms that it’s the best smell in the world.


I’m sure by now you’ve seen this. But in case you haven’t, here you go. #jimmyfallon #justintimberlake #awesome #sotrue #stopitalready

    Been meaning to leave a message but I just kept putting it off. I had to make a list of all the things I had to get done before I could leave a message, which was one of the things on the list – to get done. Whew! If we are doing true confessions here, in addition to being a “List Maker”, I am frequently a Snacker as well. A girl needs to eat.
