it’s beginning to smell like fall by megan

Happy Friday and Happy, Happy Birthday to my darling sister, Lizzy! I am so thankful that she is my sister and my best friend, too. God is so good πŸ™‚ In honor of my sister’s birthday I have been baking and shopping.

My baking has been for Lizzy’s birthday and also for the LSU party I am going to tomorrow.


white chocolate chip pumpkin cookies

I used this recipe. Except I did not make the icing and I folded in 1 cup of white chocolate chips after all of the ingredients were mixed together. While baking these cookies definitely smelled like fall and that made me smile πŸ™‚

My shopping has been for Lizzy’s birthday gift and my outfit for her birthday outing tonight. I can’t show you Lizzy’s gift, but I can show you the dresses I purchased (ehh, my mom purchased for me). They are from a local boutique, Miche, and I love them all!

IMG_8042I am wearing the dress on the left tonight since we are still experiencing record breaking heat…but aren’t the 2 long sleeved ones so lovely? I can’t wait to wear them!

So tonight’s agenda includes dinner at Palace Cafe

and some Michael Jackson at House of Blues! It is going to be such a fun night and I am so excited to celebrate Lizzy’s birthday with her, our friends, and our family.

Happy Friday!

p.s. I ordered the “Keep Calm and Carry On” poster in yellow…very excited about it!

Oh! I have just been so busy these past few weeks in between birthdays and babysitting and friends…I can’t take a break! But, I have been enjoying every bit of my business. Tomorrow is yet another birthday that must be celebrated: my dear sister, Lizzy, is turning 22 πŸ™‚ We are going to dinner and then downtown to the House of Blues for our favorite cover band…the Michael Jackson cover band that is: Who’s Bad. We saw them a few years ago and it was probably one of the best nights of my life…I had so much fun! So, needless to say I am really excited about tomorrow night…I love me some MJ.

I’ve also been shopping…loving Target and Etsy at the moment. I spent over 2 hours in Target yesterday. I got some goodies though that I can’t wait to wear…2 necklaces, a beautiful black cuff, and a pretty headband. And a gorgeous, huge black lacquer wall frame. Love. Oh, and as for Etsy…this is in my shopping cart right now.

I will let y’all know if I end up buying it! Happy Thursday!!
