Fun Friday: Pretend Fall

My Friday blogging theme is Fun Friday (basically, whatever I want). I had a lovely lunch with a friend, a coffee date with two other friends and some good work from home/clean the house time. So, today, inspired by how terribly hot it is, I'm writing about Fall.

I complain a lot about living in Southern California (mainly due to the weather). If you're reading this from the East Coast, I know what you are thinking.. "You have it good". Except I like winter, seasons, change, snow, variety. Anyway, this post isn't about complaining. It's about making the most of what I've got.

So, I indulged my Fall love at the Cost Plus 25% off sale today.

I hate this trend of Pumpkin Spiced Lattes being "Basic girl" things. Heck no. I love pumpkin. All forms. Pumpkin carving, pumpkin soup, pumpkin pasta (here's the best recipe - thanks Joyce!), pumpkin froyo, pumpkin beer and so on..

It's over 100 degrees here. I drove for about 10 minutes and my car couldn't put out even remotely cool air in defense to this heat. So, I am sitting here on my couch, right next to my window AC, with full on pretend it's remotely Fall like mode going on. Even sipping a homemade pumpkin spice chai (iced, duh).

So, just for something fun today, here's my effort to enjoy Fall (even though it doesn't feel like it):

My Cost Plus sale finds, yay!

Gotta have this Fall wreath to greet me (thanks Target $1 spot + added ribbon)

Added some pine cone garland (made by Laura Quines - thanks!) to my railing and some pumpkins

Fall photo art (thanks Artifact Uprising) and some chalk art (thanks for the board, Tracy!)

Happy weekending, friends!
