Lately I've been...

Making Shimelle's amazing pumpkin cupcakes...and devouring cupcakes from Lola's (shown below are the scrummy red velvet and peanut butter cupcakes.  I may have accidentally consumed the other two before I remembered to take a picture).  

Ordering a LOT of Yankee Candle samplers.  My current favourites are Farmer's Market, Apple Cider, Autumn Fruit, Cinnamon Stick, Moonlight Harvest, Macintosh Spice and Cinnamon & Sugar.  I also  ordered Witches' Brew and Candy Corn for Halloween.  I think I might have a new obsession. 

Finishing Amy Krouse Rosenthal's Encyclopedia of an Ordinary Life for Me: The Abridged Version.  I cannot recommend this book's both original and unusual.  I loved it.

Playing with this sweet little guy.  Winston has been a member of our household for approximately a month and a half.  He's a long-haired Syrian hamster...and he's very cute. 

Listening to Songs from Dawson's Creek and Lady Antebellum - a rediscovery and a new discovery.  Both of them are comforting and cozy ('Feels Like Home' is one of my all-time favourite songs)...perfect for the season ahead.        

And wearing my new favourite jacket.  The weather has been much cooler over the past couple of weeks, but today it was cold.  I love Autumn.

What have you been up to lately?

Quite funny how many Americanisms you're getting into at the moment. Pumpkins, Yankee Candles & Lady Antebellum. (Love them BTW.) Winston is so cute!

I'm loving autumn too - that's a very cute jacket you've got for the new season! We're talking about hamsters here too - DD really wants one and she has decided to call him Gary :)

Love those candles, really makes it fall! I'm organizing my life--or at least attempting to!

Thanks for your lovely comment about my new look :) I got my kit yesterday, so maybe you'll be lucky today.
