Chit Chat Thirty Sixth Edition

Happy Friday to you!  Let’s chit chat, so much has been going on the last couple weeks!

 Chit Chat

First off it’s Fall Break here in AZ.  The boys get a whole week off of school and that can only mean one thing…..we’re headed back to the beach.  I’ve been looking forward to this vacation for months.  Can’t wait for the salty air and sandy toes this week.  We’re hitting up Disneyland too.  We’ve had withdrawals since moving to AZ late last year, lol!

Chit Chat

Can we just talk Tieks for a few minutes?  I’m a little obsessed, lol!

I thought it would be totally appropriate to kick off Pumpkin season with matching Tieks in Tangerine.  I mean, they match my pumpkin desserts right?

I’ve got lots of travels coming up and these will be perfect this Fall!  I love AZ winters because I basically wear them all winter long.  They are my winter boots 🙂  Yippee!

Chit Chat

October is Breast Cancer Awareness month.  Tieks is teaming up with The American Cancer Society to raise awareness this month.  I will be supporting with pink all month long….and then some.  My grandmother is a breast cancer survivor of over 40 years.  My heart goes out to all those have been affected.

I am so excited for my friends and their new cookbooks!!  Run don’t walk and pick up each and every one of these!

Decorating Cookies Party from my friend Bridget Edwards of Bake at 350!  Want to throw a cookie decorating party?  She”ll walk you through hosting one.  Cookie exchange hints?  She’s gotcha covered.

Seriously Delish by my friend Jessica Merchant of How Sweet Eats!  Jessica’s recipes are to die for and drop dead gorgeous!  So proud of her!

Skinnytaste by the lovely Gina Homolka of Skinnytaste!  Oh my goodness, this book has the most drool worthy skinny recipes, yes!!  Love this book!

Cake Pops Halloween by the sweetest Bakerella!  Angie’s talent never ceases to amaze me.  She makes the most adorable cake pops and her Halloween pops make you want to stop what you’re doing and get baking 🙂

12 Days of Christmas by Six Sisters Stuff!  This powerhouse family is at it again with another beautiful cookbook!  They have such fun ideas and great family friendly recipes!

You guys, I am still so obsessed with Fabletics.  Not even kidding, this athletic line of clothes are some of the best fitting pieces I’ve ever owned.  You’ve got to check it out.  I signed up to be a VIP, which means you have the option to get new outfits each month.  I just opt to “skip” those months and choose my own pieces.  It’s so easy and the best prices.


Loving my new Rings from Kendra Scott.  Her jewelry is my favorite!  Splurged over my sister weekend in Scottsdale 🙂

If you’re looking for a perfect little summer black dress, I found one at Madewell.  Looking forward to wearing lots!  Can be dressed up or down.  Love it!

Chit Chat

If you need me, I’ll be dreaming of eating my favorite Disneyland goodies next week 🙂

Have a wonderful weekend!!

Disclosure: I partner with Tieks, however thoughts and opinions are my own.
