Fall is my favorite!

I just love this time of the year! There are so many things that make Fall enjoyable for everyone. The cool and crisp air, pumpkin patches, fall festivals, pumpkin carving, cute sweaters and sweater dresses, Ugg Boots, Starbuck's White Chocolate Mocha, togetherness of family and friends, and if you live in the Tri-State area the number one place to attend each Oct-Nov, the National Peanut Festival.

This week Fall for me has officially started! The house has an aroma of freshly baked Pumpkin Bread and homemade pumpkin sugar cookies(Thanks Mom!!) and I've been able to wear my Uggs lately.
Some VERY special visitors came to town last night! My brother Kyle and his fiance' Rebecca are getting married next summer in ENGLAND!! I'm so excited! (Can't wait for the shopping!)Rebecca is from England and attends college in America. Her wonderful family lives in England and they came to visit for a week! Last night they came and we ate at a Dothan's best steakhouse, Conestoga, which has been a family favorite for years!

Kyle and his future father-in-law playing Badmitton. The boys decided they would find something to do instead of joining in the "wedding details"!

Richard and Larry enjoying the game! You can tell how intense the game got with the "homemade boundaries" which were a water hose and orange cones.

Enjoying time together before going back!

Kyle and Rebecca with my WONDERFUL grandparents!

The Girls!

The time spent with family was wonderful! We all look forward to seeing them again soon. Have a nice flight back to England Wakely Family!

This weekend I will be enjoying some well-needed time with friends! Pumkin Carving and Peanut Festival here I come!!

**What is the funniest, cutest, or scariest pumpkin you've ever decorated or carved?**

Any cute ideas on how I should carve my pumpkins this weekend?

I've Finally...


After "blog-stalking" for a while, and being inspired by the blogging world to decorate, take pictures, try YUMMY new recipes, and where to find the perfect accessories for a super cute outfit, I have decided it's time to share my experiences, awesome shopping finds, and recipes with you!

Here are 7 quick facts about this Southern Cinderella, Lindsay.

1. I love southern Alabama. The 90 minute drive to the beautiful Gulf Coast is wonderful for daytrips. Especially Destin shopping trips with my Mom!

2. Speaking of my mother, she's my best friend!

3. I'm a SHOPAHOLIC!...literally. I truly believe it's the best medicine! If I'm not studying, working, or with family...well, I'm shopping!

4. I am a Diet Coke addict.

5. Cupcakes are my FAVORITE treat! I even collect cute and fun cupcake things.

6. Chloe Elizabeth is the one of the best things that has happened to me. She brings me happiness and joy each and every day. Just look at her, you can't help but SMILE!

7. Last, but CERTAINLY NOT LEAST, I'm a Southern Baptist and love my Lord Jesus, I believe that he has the most PERFECT and FABULOUS plan for my life!

I hope everyone has had a FABULOUS weekend!
