I Just Blogged to Say I Love You (Vol. 9)

i just blogged to say i love you (vol. 9)

1. First, read this.  It's on kindness...and I think we need more of it.  Great read for teens and tweens starting out the school year.  Heck, it's a great read for ALL of us.
{Thanks, Meg, for sending the link. ♥}

2. The official start of fall may be September 22nd, but the REAL start of fall is the appearance of the Pumpkin Cream Cheese Muffin at Starbucks.  Am I right?  Even if it IS 102 degrees outside. (Really, Texas?)  Anyway...my love of pumpkin runs deep.  So deep that I've dedicated a Pinterest board to it.  And I think these are the first on my "must make" list.

3. Speaking of "must makes"...The S'mores Cookbook.  I MUST MAKE everything in it.  It is packed with tempting s'mores recipes from Susan Whetzel.  I cannot wait to try the S'more Dip and the Dark Chocolate S'mores Pie.  The photography by Bree Hester is just beautiful.

4. Um, how CUTE are these topiary cookies?!?

5. This stuff is THE BOMB!  Agave Nectar body oil.  I can't get enough of it.  I picked it up in a little shop thinking I'd found this unknown treasure.  Only to find out, it was on Oprah's "O-list," so maybe I'm a little late to the party.  It leaves your skin smooth and soft...and doesn't cost a million bucks.  LOVE it.

6. I'm not sure if these are only available in Texas, but these Shiner Country Style Smokies make the best pigs-in-a-blanket ever.  I thought you needed to know that.

7. Pinterest.  You love it; I love it.  I want to introduce you to two girls and pinners I love to follow.  First, there is Bakelette.  I basically just see what she's pinned and re-pin it all.  The girl is my Pinterest soul mate.  And then there's Peabody.  I just love her pins and especially her board called "love who you are."

8. Every time I go into Anthropologie, it seems there is another piece in this collection...and I fall deeper and deeper in love.  (Dear Anthropologie, I'm sorry for caressing the dishes.) 

What are you loving lately?



  1. So, I'm looking at Feedly and see a new post from you. I click and what do I see? MY COOKIES!


  2. I am headed for your pumpkin pinterest board now and then headed to Bakelette's and Peabody's! I need pinterest help! I am the worlds wort pinner and it's time to change that!

    Oh and I seriously just came from ordering that cake plate from Anthropologie! Like I just did it five minutes ago! I have been on the search for a perfect cake plate and I fell in love with that one. I hope I love it just as much in person!

  3. I too love pumpkin! My favorite pumpkin cinnamon rolls are Smitten Kitchen's recipe. I always make a double batch. They come out soft and everything yummy!

  4. Great links all around and I'm totally all over that pumpkin board! It's my favorite time of the year! :)

  5. Oh I want that S'mores cookbook! I can only imagine it's goodness!

  6. "The official start of fall may be September 22nd, but the REAL start of fall is the appearance of the Pumpkin Cream Cheese Muffin at Starbucks." - the best sentence :)

  7. Yes, I am quite the Pinterest addict. But I love that I can share my mission to get others to love who they are on such a wonderful platform!

    Thanks so much for loving my board.

    And don't even get me starting on Anthropologie...it's almost easier to list what I don't love there than what I do!

  8. Thanks for the mention! :D Mega happy dance right now! Love ya pinterest soul mate!

    I prefer inspecting merchandise over caressing! ;)
