I love fall and I am gaga over all these fabulous party ideas. Yes to the metallic pumpkins, pumpkin cooler, pumpkin carved address numbers and fabulous tablescapes!

I mentioned this wine awhile back over the holidays last year but we just picked up another bottle this week and it is a fabulous Cab. It is on sale right now at Harris Teeter for $19.99. It is so smooth with a great light finish.

If you aren’t familiar with this fabulous food blog you need to be. Amazing recipes and gorgeous pictures! Here are a few recents that have my stomach growling: Potato Rings with Homemade Buttermilk Ranch, Salted Carmel and Bacon Ice Cream Sandwiches, Fig and Caramelized Onion Tart. Truly amazing recipes here a must read!

At first I was super skeptical about this teen series, but I just finished the first book and I am hooked! I can’t wait to start the second book Catching Fire. I don’t even know how to even describe this series but I promise these books rock!
