The weather can be gloomy and I hate how wet leaves gets stuck to your shoes and car. At the same time what better rainy Autumn days than watching spooky scary movies…

I love to see bright orange and red trees and it makes me pause and appreciate Wisconsin….cuz lord knows come winter I curse my ancestors for moving so far north…

Yall can keep apple pie. One of my favorite desserts is apple crisp. A coworker once made it and ever since I’ve been hooked. I need to make one with Granny Smith’s before the month is out except this time I’m adding vanilla ice cream for good measure…

There are so many fun foodie things to make with family and friends. I’m down for all of thee above…

My friend had me try pumpkin spice lattes. It was cool but I’m more of caramel girl. Caramel frappes and caramel mochas from Mcdonald’s slays Starbucks. I don’t care what anyone says. That coffee makes me alert for hours for half the price. I have to limit my frappes to once a week because it would be a problem if I didn’t. Recently I’ve tried the ice coffees from Dunkin Donuts and they have all sorts of caramel flavors now. They even have a mocha pumpkin combo for you pumpkin lovers…

This was from a few weeks ago. My god-daughter made pumpkin seeds. Me no likey but I love going with them to the pumpkin patch and apple picking. It’s usually when I finally embrace fall…

image

The apples I picked were sliced and diced and drizzled with melted marshmellows, caramel, chocolate syrup, chocolate chips, and crumbled graham crackers. They’re called apple nachos. So delish!

Best time about the fall is all the new flavored concoctions that shows up. I saw this smores pancake mix at Aldi. Usually I only buy name brand pancake mix but…it’s smores. Gotta try it…

Pretty mustard trees captured by me on a nice sunny Sunday. Milwaukee has had such a mild October. I’m talking weeks in the 70s. I’ve been trying to enjoy it as much as possible…

Now for what all women love…is the fall fashion. I mean…boots, thick materials like suedes, leathers, cahsmere…and the layering…. oh how I love layering scarves over blazers over tees etc.

Those two fall fabness is from my Fashionistas board on Pinterest.

Lastly I love October for Halloween. It’s my favorite holiday next to Christmas. I love the scary movies and haunted houses. My friend is having a burlesque themed bday party so this will be the first time in forever that I actually dress up. The masks in the stores are so pretty.
