I recently participated in the Fall Into Fall blog swap hosted by Neely, Erin and Tracy.
I was teamed up with Kristyn of Chits and Giggles and we got to know each other a bit through email. We each had $20 to spend on fun items for the Fall and Kristyn did a great job! Here’s my loot:
Pumpkin Spice Candle
Perfect to light on a crisp fall afternoon or evening, it’s a great scent to accompany a nice cup of tea of coffee, a good book and a relaxing moment.
Essie nail polish in Recessionista
Great plummy color, perfect for the fall. I may wear it this weekend!
Very cute! I think this might work well in our nursery decor (but you’ll just have to wait and see on that one)
Fall is almost officially here so I thought I would do a rundown of the fashions I am coveting this season.
You can never go wrong with this fall staple. They are so cozy and are just the right thing for a crisp day – perhaps spent outside picking apples or pumpkins.
Boots are another must-have. Tall or short, find the perfect pair for you and strut your stuff!
Slouchy leather bag
I have a great black one but would love another in brown, burgundy or forest green.
What’s on your fall fashion must-have list?

This weekend, we’re going to Pittsburgh to see the Jets play the Steelers. I’ve never been there before, so I’m looking forward to it. We usually take a short trip the weekend before Thanksgiving but since I’ll be about 37 weeks pregnant at that time, we’re doing it a bit earlier this year!
I’m sure it’s going to be a fun time – but since I’ve never been to an away-game, I’m not sure how hardcore Steelers fans may be – especially when they see us in full Jets green! 😉
While in Pittsburgh, there are a few places I would like to check out:
I’ve heard a lot about this famous sandwich shop while watching a few food shows on the Travel Channel and Food Network. They pack everything into their sandwiches including fries and a vinegar-based cole slaw. I’m looking forward to tasting what all the fuss is about!
The Church Brew Works
The Husband was here when he visited Pittsburgh on a baseball trip about 4 years ago. It’s a brewery/restaurant located in an old, converted church – a unique dining experience.
If you’ve been reading my blog, you know by now that we like to go on ghost tours in each city we visit and Pittsburgh is no exception!
The drive there is long (almost 7 hours!) and we’ll only be there for one full day plus 2 travel days. So we don’t have a lot of time, but I would like to do some more activities if possible. Maybe find a great place for brunch or a historical site to check out.
What are some of your suggestions for fun things to do in Pittsburgh?

The first day of school is upon us! It always makes me think of new beginnings. It’s almost like getting a fresh start – even if you’re not starting a new school year.
I love that the weather is also changing a bit – even if its been really rainy here. I know that soon the leaves will be changing colors and the air will be getting crisper. And I for one can’t wait.
I also start orchestra tomorrow – it feels like so long since I’ve been there, which was really only last May. I want to savor the Fall and hope the time doesn’t slip by too quickly as I feel the summer did.
Happy school year/Fall/new beginnings to you! 🙂
