M’s Weekly Love List

Happy Halloween friends! What’s on your agenda this weekend? I’ll be heading out of town tomorrow for a bit of annual Christmas shopping with family. The kind of Christmas shopping where you buy more goodies for yourself and spend half the day eating and enjoying a few brews. Yep, that kind. And I love every second of it. Aside from that, I’ll be doing some last minute packing for my work trip to Mexico next week for the Jose Villa Workshop! I’ll be instagramming along the way incase you want to follow along!

Now for a few fave links I came across this week…

It never gets old.

Such a pretty dress for fall.

5 Ways To Eat Figs this Fall

Confession: I didn’t eat a real fig until I was in my early twenties. Fig newtons, yes. That’s sort of a sad statement for the way the majority of my generation ate growing up—sugary treats rather than whole foods. Thankfully, I’ve been enjoying these little gems in their delicious whole form for the last eight years and I love getting creative with them. This fall especially, I’ve been seeing so many tasty looking recipes in blogland and rounded up a few I’ve added to my must-try list. Bon appétit, fig lovers!

M’s Weekly Love List

After a busy, rainy and gloomy week, I’m ready for the weekend and the gorgeous weather it’s going to bring. With Halloween right around the corner, Salem is buzzing with tourists and the annual Haunted Happenings. One of my bridesmaids and very good friends is coming to visit tomorrow for the day and I have a feeling it’s going to be filled with cider, pumpkin beer, a little bit of fall shopping and lots of much needed catching up. Wishing you all a cozy fall weekend! xo

These fruit and nut bars look so tasty.

So excited to finally share our engagement photos this week!

Fall in a jar.

When the house smells like Pumpkin Soufflé, life is good.

We’re hosting Thanksgiving again! And I might just have to use these adorable pie crust cutters for the apple pie.

I like this motto.
