1.  Nothing says fall like a Starbucks run, lazy weekends at the cider mill, and football <3

2.  My favorite autumnal tradition is: I don't have one! Perhaps it's time to start one?

3.  My favorite fall treat is: anything involving apple or pumpkin

4. Fall makes me think of: winter that's on it's way :(

5.  Autumn free form word association, go! leaves, scarf, boots, skinny jeans, Starbucks PSL, crock pot food

6.  My go-to outfit in the fall is: dark jeans, a v-neck and a scarf

7.  My favorite fall holiday is (Halloween or Thanksgiving): Thanksgiving- I actually don't like Halloween that much...

Least Techy...

About a month ago, I bought an Asus tablet and docking station to replace my laptop. It was old and dying. I couldnt figure out how to work my tablet so I barely used it for almost a month, Last night my Dell finally here I am. No pictures, no files, no music on my new tablet. Starting all over....Im still getting used to my touch screen and figuring out what apps I need so I can do school on this as well.

What tablet do you have? What apps are necessary? I don't play games so Angry Birds probably won't be downloaded....:-)

Also I am trying to figure out new bloggy layouts/designs and how to add buttons/Twitter link/Facebook link. Can anyone help? I am probably the least techy person to ever enter blog world but I'm TRYING.

Thursday Things

1. Going to bed at 9pm on Wednesday means you WILL be up at 4am, and unable to go back to sleep. Also, this one night out of the week, your neighbor will be snoring so obnoxiously loud that it keeps you up even longer...which is why I am sitting here at 4:45am...

2. I didn't buy those chairs from IKEA. To be honest the price was a little ridiculous (300 each) to me at this point in my life. I bought two chairs that I LOVE from Target, and they were on discount. I got two side chairs for less than the price of ONE IKEA chair. My living room is painted a cream color (it's actually coconut milk) and my tables/ottoman are espresso, so brown furniture works great. I think they tie the room together and make it look a little happier. 

3. I haven't been working a ridiculous amount any more- bittersweet. I find myself wasting time since I get Mondays, most of Wednesdays, and Saturdays off. On the other hand, I'm finally relaxing and getting things done around my house. This summer, I got ONE day on the boat with my boyfriend (now ex...) and a QUICK weekend to see my best friend get married. I checked the calendar at work and we only have 9 events in November so I'm thinking of making a trip somewhere! Where should I go, ladies? I'm thinking somewhere semi-warm and making it a mini road trip.

4. I'm making homemade stir fry tonight- is it sad that I'm excited about that? Everyone on Food Network makes it look so easy and ordering food is no bueno for my waistline or budget, so, here goes nothing! I'm trying to get more into cooking at home and figuring out some recipes I can make quickly after a long day at work/school.

Neither Reese or I are a bro, but, these were too good not to share.

-Kitten to the vet
-Libby to the vet
-D's volleyball game (I used to BABYSIT her)
-being fantastic

I am spending half of the day Friday or Saturday doing NOTHING. We are talking pajamas, wine, movie, relaxing. That's all I want to do! I might even go get a pedi at some point.
