Countdown to Fall + Pics ‘n’ Pins

Hope you all had a fabulous Labor Day!

Now its back to work, school, etc. But, its almost Fall. 18 days til we hit the start of a new season.

I’m so excited! I get more and more excited for Fall every year. You can tell its my favorite season, right?

I actually hate Summer…yeah I know, *gasp!*

But living in Alabama, Summer is the worst. Humid almost every day. 100 degree weather. That feeling when you get in your car after work and its so hot in there you can’t breath. The sweat that runs down your whole body from just standing. Not cool.

And its still hot…Alabama Summer lasts forever it seems and I want it to end!

Those of you who live North or somewhere where its not that hot, you don’t want Summer like we have it. Don’t ever wish for it!

Anyway, I wanted to share all my favorite Fall foods/recipes! Hope we have some in common! Let me know in the comments! Smile

Peas and Crayons

Leg day too…

So true, I usually feel the pain 2 days after ive done itLeg day waddleLeg day


I started my morning off with cheerios and strawberries in almond milk with chia seeds sprinkled on top…wish I had a picture. I THOUGHT I took one, but apparently not.

After eating and drinking some darn good coffee, my mom and I headed to a new location to get in 9 miles!

We hydrated with Coconut Water (Cocozia for me), water and Zaxby’s unsweetened ice tea with lemon before heading home.

I was so happy to come home and take a shower! Just like Julie said yesterday, there’s nothing sweeter taking a shower after being gross and sweaty. AH the feeling of cleanliness!

I don’t know about you, but after I exercise for 2 hours, I am starving!!!!


A wrap with PB2 and a banana! Yummay! And my sister, Lydia, left a handful of puffins in the box…argh!

Coffee Time

Yepp, we have coffee everyday around 4pm…It’s like we’re British but with coffee.Step away from the cup! Social reformers in 19th Century Ireland feared drinking tea was as and destructive to morals as drinking whiskey

And a little biscotti…my mom picked these up and they taste like Fall! <—Lol taste like Fall…in my world, that can happen.



7:00 PM rolled around: I heard my stomach grumble and felt it gnawing so I definitely knew it was dinner time.

What did I eat…


A spoonful of spaghetti, couple of spoonful’s of brown rice, chicken from Sunday, veggies, laughing cow cheese…trying to get rid of leftovers here.

That’s about it!

Have a fabulous Wednesday everyone!
