weekend things.

When it comes to pumpkins, I like variety.

This weekend was the perfect start to fall--after temps in the high 70's last week, we finally cooled off into the low 60's and I loved busting out warmer clothes. Friday night I was so wiped from a crazy week at work that I had an early dinner of Chinese food with my parents and crashed early. On Saturday, my sister-in-law threw a surprise 30th birthday party for my brother--the weather was perfect, there was a band and great food and drinks (and he was pretty surprised, which was a huge plus). It was the perfect celebration and I loved seeing friends and family raising a glass to my little brother.

I slept in Sunday (I'm very fortunate to have a dog who appreciates sleep as much as I do), and then I grabbed a delicious brunch with my mom and sister. We stopped by LOFT because my sister and I both had LOFT cash from previous excursions, and I ended up buying two dresses and two shirts for under $100(!). I never really did a ton of shopping there before, but I'm loving all of the tunics and shift dresses they have right now (and you can't beat the price) After that, we stocked up on all things pumpkin-flavored at Trader Joe's and I bought additional real pumpkins for my house. I ended the weekend by making pumpkin bread (there's a theme here) and Ina's Butternut Squash Risotto and cozying up on the couch with some wine and The Affair. It was perfection.

  1. LOFT has stepped up their game. And for work, you really can't beat it...

    Pumpkin envy.
