I'm loving...**

  • the weather. It is finally starting to cool off and feel like fall --- or at least a Southern California "fall" (it's all relative). I've had to pull out my sweaters, long pants and boots and it's such a nice change from flip flops and tank tops.
  • pumpkin foods. This is absolutely the best time of year for sweet treats. Everywhere you look there are pumpkin goodies to be had --- ice cream, cheesecake, cookies, muffins and my all time favorite, the Pumpkin-Spice latte at Starbucks. Oh, how I heart you PSL!
  • the jackson fit pant at Banana Republic. Finally a pant that fits in the waist and yet accomodates hips, thighs and a bit of booty. They keep expanding the colors, fabric and style details so there are a lot of options. I feel like I'm collecting the whole set.
  • being part of my husband's fantasy football team. This was the best decision I made earlier in the summer. My husband and I co-own a team in a league with his work pals and we've done pretty well so far (tied for first right now--thank you Randy Moss, you crazy WR you). Besides getting even more sucked in to football than I was last year, I also love being cc'd on all of crap-talking emails sent back and forth among league members. Girls don't do this the same way guys do and it is hilarious to me to see the ribbing the goes on on a near daily basis. So great!

** I had this post all ready to go and then caught Wan's latest post and realized it looks like I'm totally biting off of her. Oops! But, imitation is the sincerest form of flattery, right? :)
