All The Fall Things + $50 Bath & Body Works Giveaway

While us Floridians don’t usually feel too much of an impact from fall in terms of weather (at least like everyone else), it’s still a much-loved season. That said, this morning the temps hit the high 60s (it’ll still be high 80s this afternoon), and you better believe I busted out my fall booties! 

My Halloween/fall decor at home, however, is seriously lacking. So I was pleasantly surprised to find a package from my grandparents yesterday, filled with my favorite Halloween season candy (candy corn!) and some cute festive decorations. So happy to have something up for the season now!


Here’s what I’m looking forward to this month (lots of #basic things, obviously):

  • A trip to the pumpkin patch, which includes a scavenger hunt hayride and a corn maze
  • Catching a double feature at the drive-in, where the classic Nightmare on Elm Street will play
  • Haunted houses (already hit Halloween Horror Nights + Howl-O-Scream!)
  • Pumpkin carving + baked, salted pumpkin seeds (YUM!)
  • Fall foilage in the northeast
  • Our big annual employee event at work, this year The Great Gatsby-themed
  • Frolicking through the fields of trees and picking apples 
  • Rocking boots and sweaters – yay for fall clothes!
  • Finishing up 2 of my grad school classes (this technically isn’t a fall event, but I’m still pretty freaking excited about it! I’m on the homestretch!)

To celebrate all the fall things, I’m continuing the giveaway fun with a few other bloggers this week, with a $50 gift card to Bath & Body Works! Because everyone needs those incredible fall smells in their home!

    I don’t think I even knew you were in grad school! What are you studying?

      I’m working toward a graduate certificate in Business Foundations.. and then possibly transitioning into the MBA program (but haven’t made that decision yet lol). It all happened so quickly!

    I know how you feel about it not being really fall yet. I live in Houston and I was so excited when it turned 60 degrees. I would love to go to a pumpkin patch. I’ve never been. Once it gets cooler here I will be wearing my boots!! Thanks for the giveaway!

      I hope you get some cooler weather soon! There’s nothing quite like pulling out the boots for fall! And you have to find a pumpkin patch to visit, they’re so much fun!

      I can’t wait for it! If only Leo and/or Robert Redford would be there too!

    Yes I cannot say I have gotten into the fall mood here in Florida yet. I hesitate to wish for too much cold weather but some sweater weather would be nice.

    • October 13, 2015 / 8:59 PM

      Agreed! At least we’ve had some pretty cool mornings lately!
