Fall is almost upon us...

After having the end of summer party this weekend it made me realize that we really are at the end of summer. :( I love summer more than any other time of year but my second favorite may just be fall! With fall comes a lot of things to look forward to.

First and foremost... Football Season! I've grown up a South Carolina fan, but now that I'm dating Brice I pull for Auburn as well! {Except when we play each other this year!}
War Eagle!
My birthday is also in the fall... always a fun celebration! 
Brice & me at my 26th birthday dinner last year
Oyster roasts!
Palmetto Society Oyster Roast 2007
 Also, I am about done with my Sun & Sand Yankee Candle and ready for my very favorite, Autumn Leaves! Autumn Leaves is a vibrant medley of birch & maple leaves with pomegranate, juniper, berry & orange blossom. It may be my favorite candle of all time!

Although this year I may also need to try one of their new fragrances Mountain Lodge. Mountain Lodge is warm with the aroma of cedarwood & sage. I love warm and spicy scents!
The color of the leaves changing, pumpkins, cool mornings, and being able to just be comfortable at any time. I don't have to worry about humidity, sweating, or freezing to death and having to wear a ton of layers.

Yesterday it rained ALL day long, I really didn't come out of my pj's. This morning when I woke up it was overcast with a little rain again. I made one of my favorite fall & winter meals. Breakfast. When I say Breakfast, I mean not just a bowl of cereal, oatmeal, yogurt... I mean cooking eggs, bacon, toast... yum! I decided to try my first attempt of eggs over easy. Success!I was so scared when I flipped it the yolk would break. I do think if I had taken it off maybe just 15 seconds earlier it would be really perfect!
So buttery and good!
Two of our friends dressed up as Marisa & me on The Amazing Race! hahaha!!

So... as my beloved summer comes to an end, I am trying to look forward to the joys of fall and exciting times to come!


  1. i love fall candles! mmmm. it's almost time for pumpkin desserts! :)i almost peed my pants when i saw the guys dressed up as you and your friend from the amazing race. that's awesome.

  2. Yes... they actually won the costume contest at one of the bars that night! ha!

  3. I love fall, too. Crisp, clean air. It's so hot and humid where I live that I'm actually getting sick of it (Can't believe I said that as I LOVE summer!).

    I am going to check out the Autumn Leaves candle. I'm always looking for new fragrances. Speaking of which, have you ever tried Votivo Forest or Christmas Sage? Woodsy and fantastic! Actually, pretty much all the Votivos are great (Love Noel!)!

    Love all the photos. The one of you on your birthday is adorable.:)

    By the way, I tagged you! :)

  4. Now I MUST find out where those candles are sold! I usually buy the BBW autumn candles but honestly, can we have too many?

  5. so ready for fall...and some Gamecock football!

  6. You are making me so excited for my fall candles, and of course football season!

    Is it just me or did this summer fly by?

  7. Have you tried the Leaves candle from White Barn/Bath and Body Works? It's smells sooooo good! My absolute favorite. And it also comes in a hand soap, too!
