{pin this} making my list

Plus, I will admit that I am not an easy person to shop for (I tend to buy things for myself before anyone has a chance to get in on the action).

{pin this} time for fall cocktails

Make sure to check back next week for the results. Happy Thursday!

First things first, for the next two weeks I will only be posting on Monday’s. Will be back in full force on the 23rd. (Work life is taking over once again!) I might be busy, but you know I always have time to pin a few things.  It’s a good way for me to see where my mind is at, and it’s clearly ready to make the transition into fall. So this is short and sweet, but checkout these links below for some of my favorite pins this week. potato chips get a makeover, I am in! simple and green, the perfect table setting for an early fall dinner setting. Loving this solution for making hash browns. I want to get one more evening dinner outside under the stars. Peach season is coming to an end, what better way to enjoy that sweet goodness than with a peach mojito.
