Where are you Fall?

It sure doesn't feel like fall around here. The temperature is in the high70's/ 80's and the sun is shining brightly. From what the locals say, we arehaving an "Indian Summer" meaning that summer is sticking around latethis year. bummer. Although it does give us opportunity to check out our newcity and see what all the fun outdoor activities are available around here.

 I can't wait for it to start getting cool. I love thecrisp air and the hazy sky. Just thinking about it makes me want to curl up bya fireplace and sip hot cocoa. At least the leaves are changing colors intobeautiful fire reds, oranges and gold. It is nice to live in a place that hasactual seasons (no offense SD).

James and I are thinking about taking the plunge and becoming coffee drinkers. I NEED caffeine because baby keeps me up all hours of the night to nurse and I have to be at work and ready for my busy day by 8 am. The thing is, we don't like the bitter taste of coffee. We like the sweet stuff. I LOVE coffee ice cream, so if I can get a drink that taste like that but warm, we would be all set. What better time to start drinking coffee then the fall? For any of you coffee lovers out there, do you have any suggestions?  

I keep hearing about all these pumpkin patches that are starting up and I can't wait to take the girls. I want to hit up at least 1 every weekend. Seriously love getting out and about with the girls to parks and festivals and things of the sort. Especially places where Chloe can pet/see animals, her face lights up so big when she sees real life animals.  

I am also excited for fall because I LOVE fall wardrobe! I want to start wearing my boots, cardigans, scarfs, mittens and warm fun colored tights, so get with it fall!

Oh and we already have our theme for Halloween this year. We will be the characters from UP. James will be Carl, Chloe is Russel, Emery is Doug and I will be Kevin. I can't wait to see how our costumes turn out. I love when families dress up together, it is so cute.  If any of you have ideas for this theme, let me know as I am trying to put the costumes together on the limited budget and very limited spare time I have.

Try some yummy coffee creamers! Coffee Mate makes a ton and in the fall/winter they have Pumpkin Spice and Peppermint Mocha....doesn't taste like Starbucks but pretty close.

You guys will look so cute!

I LOVE the salted caramel mocha at Starbucks - it has that coffee taste, but it's nice and sweet, and perfect for fall!
