Happy Fall Ya’ll

Happy Fall Ya’ll

It’s been a hectic past few months from music classes, soccer practices, a nephew off to college, my sister breaking a foot, and fall shenanigans we’ve been super busy! I’ll give myself some credit I’ve been doing a lot better in the Instagram department so check out my instagram page too!

A week before my first nephew was to head off to college my sister broke her foot in August. This sister is seriously my lifesaver every time I need anything she’s always there from being by my side through delivering my babies to the littlest things such as running out to pick up milk and eggs from the grocery store for me.  She’s my rock and so when she went out of commission due to her broken foot I knew I had to step up my game and be there for her.  From being her on call ‘chauffeur’ to making sure she had a home cooked meal delivered to her I made sure I was there for her every time she needed me.  It’s been a long past couple months but she’s finally recovered and walking on both feet again after a foot surgery and two months of crutches, a scooter, physical therapy and sliding from place to place she’s finally driving again!

Aside from that, my two-year-old Ray started soccer this season.  That has been an interesting experience.  He’s so good at playing at home but when it comes to practice or games he wants mommy to be there with him the entire time. Yes even on game day, on the field, holding his hand as he scores his goal. I went in with the hopes of being the crazy soccer mom rooting for my boy from the sidelines, but nope we stepped it up a notch and mommy is actually on the field all while holding my one year old on my other arm.  But coach says he’s only two so it’s okay he’ll ease into the game right now it’s all about introducing the game and basic rules. Soccer seasons almost over and I’m looking into winter sports now…skiing!?!

I love every moment of this season as the weather is getting cooler and all the fall vibes are present.  I absolutely love to wear vests during this time of year. My oldest niece says “Khala (Aunt) everyone goes through a vest phase in life you’re just still not over yours” I couldn’t agree more with her though!


This blue puffer vest is from Zara and I bought it last year.  I love this one it is so light yet the perfect second layer for this time of year when the weather is cooler in the morning but somewhat warms down in the afternoon.  We live in Idaho though so the weather is really unpredictable it could be sunny one moment and a snowstorm the next.  Did you guys see the hint of snow we got last weekend!!! Aye, I think this is just the calm before the super cold weather ahead! But it’s okay because cold days mean more snuggles by the fireplace and lots more cozy sweatshirts and sweaters.

And I have to share the steal deal I got on this plaid shirt.  Nothing yells Fall in an attire like a plaid shirt so I saw this one on Nordstrom’s website and I was so excited to buy it until I found out it was SOLD OUT! And so I eagerly checked to see if it would come back in stock, no luck yet! And as I was taking my stroll in TJMaxx a few weeks ago I spotted the same exact shirt from Lucky Brand and for almost $15 less than the price marked on Nordstrom so I grabbed it because well you can’t skip a sweet deal like that!

Here’s another puffer vest I absolutely love I actually wore this one in my last pregnancy.  It’s runs a little bigger in size that’s a small in size that I’m wearing and I love the red color, this vest is from JCrew.  JCrew has a strong vest game with a variety in color offered and styles plus the quality of their vests is amazing! Definitely worth the purchase! I thought this was a fun outfit to put together as we headed to the pumpkin patch today.

We’re trying to get full into the Fall and Halloween festivities around here as the fall décor is up, cozy sweaters are out, and all things pumpkin spice are around. How are you celebrating the change of season?  Are there any particular traditions you have for this time of year? I’d love to hear in the comments below!

Happy Fall Ya’ll!
