Things I’m Loving Lately 6

The fall colors are changing and the weather was anything but summer-like this past weekend.   In fact Saturday in Western North Carolina was down right cold in my opinion.  Bring on ALL things pumpkin, because I am finally loving fall!

Here are some of the things at the top of my list that are making me smile right now.

Fall Decorations

I have a serious holiday decoration addiction.  I’d say it’s a fall decoration addiction, but that would be a lie.  I love decorating for any holiday.  In fact, I have an entire bin of Easter things.  I’m afraid to count how many Christmas bins there are in my attic.

But I digress, my little “problem” sure makes for a cute house.

Just wait until I add all the “turkey” things to the fall decoration mix next month.   I’m feeling festive!

Thanksgiving

Speaking of turkeys… I know I have to get through Halloween first, but I am super excited about Thanksgiving this year.

The hubs and I are hosting again and after last year’s epic feast, we are looking forward to another throw down of epic proportions.  I’m already excited about the prospects.

There will be Plymouth Rock N’ Rolls….

and a Thankful Tree again….

I should probably start chopping vegetables now to get ready!

The Voice

I may be the last American to get on this train, but how much fun is The Voice?  I didn’t realize how funny the judges would be and how the whole premise is different that American Idol.  And how cool is Pharrel?  I want to be his beau!

So what happens after the blind auditions?  The hubs and I want to know!

Cooler Running Weather

I may not like cold weather in general, but it is so much easier to run in the cooler fall air compared to summer.   I tend to run my fastest in the spring and fall.

I am loooovvvving cooler fall running weather!  Isn’t it spectacular?

No LED Light Gel Polish

I got this new Sally Hansen No LED light gel polish the other day and love it.  You paint your nails and then seal it with a no LED light gel top coat.  It stays on not as long as a salon gel polish, but much longer than normal polish.  The best part is there is no nail wrapping to get it off, normal remover does the job.  It’s awesome!

Coconut Oil

I accidently discovered how amazing coconut oil is for my hair while trying to protect it from the dye at The Color Run.  I am now using it as a leave in conditioner and it works wonders!  It might be a little too heavy if your hair is super duper fine, but I am loving it.  It gives my hair moisture and seems to make it smooth.  My hair is on the thin side of normal.

    So, confession: I think other people’s fall decorations are fun, but I have never actually decorated our apt for fall! Crazy, right? We just don’t have a lot of storage space, so I don’t like buying a lot of decoration stuff. Maybe when we get a house and have a front porch!

      I totally understand! I probably got into it more when I got a house with more space. Luckily (or maybe not so lucky) I have lots of space for bins. But then I keep getting more stuff…. 🙂

    Hey Julie — looks so cozy as you have definitely “fallen for autumn” this year. As you are planning the Thanksgiving Feast this year – you should add the butternut squash recipe, so yummy. Enjoy all your posts and look forward to when you add the turkeys and pilgrims and Indians for next month. And, of course, Christmas and then springing into warmer weather and Easter’s glory. Appreciate your Running In A Skirt so much!

      Hi Libby,
      Thanks so much! The butternut squash would be perfect! What a great idea.

    I love decorating for Fall! Its seriously the best!
    I saw that nail polish at target the other day but didn’t know how good it would be. Now I know! I need to go pick some up 🙂

      Oh Target… I always pick up WAY too many THINGS! 🙂 This one is good though!

    The Voice is an awesome show. After the blind auditions they will go to the battle rounds, where 2 contestants from the same team duke it out on the same song that the coach picks. The coach will then pick 1 contestant to stay. This is where another coach can steal the eliminated contestant. Each coach is only allowed like 2 steals though. I think there is another head-to-head challenge after the battle rounds, but I’m fuzzy with my memory of that. Eventually, it gets down to each contestant performing a song each week and votes from viewers deciding who stays and who goes. Pharell is adorable on this a show, and I’m enjoying him being on there. Same with Gwen, and you can’t beat Blake and Adam. I love their banter.

      All four of them are so funny! Thanks for filling me in! I can’t believe the coaches now have to kick people off their team. What a great show.

    Yeah, the weather this weekend really makes it feel like fall. It will be Halloween soon and then on to Thanksgiving.

    LOVE your fall decorations! It makes for such a fun and cozy house. I have bins for all of my holidays as well, lol.

    Gah! Your fall decorations are so cute. I need to get decorating. We haven’t even gone to the pumpkin patch yet. I’m behind as usual. The Thankful tree is a great idea too. I should set one of for the boys and everyday for November they could add to it and I would have one beautiful decoration at the end of the month. I’ve never seen the voice, and coconut oil and I are mortal enemies.

      Thank you so much! I got a little flack about the Thankful tree last year as over the top (ie… my husband writing he is thankful for the thankful tree), but I feel like it has the making of a great family tradition 🙂

    I keep my holiday decorations in bins in the attic too. I color coded the bins for easy retrieval — red and green for Christmas, lavender for Easter and orange for fall.

      Haha! Great minds think alike! My poor hubby has to go and get them all every month or two 🙂 My theory is he secretly loves the décor.

    I love fall decorations! What I’m really loving is that it seems like more people are doing them now too – probably thanks to Pinterest lol.

    • JulieWunder October 6, 2014 at 2:09 pm - Reply

      yeah, I love and hate pinterest at the same time. It makes me want to do ALL THE PROJECTS!
