{Porch Light Off? Check.}

I do not celebrate halloween never have which is great because I don't really like kids. Actually, there are 5 children that I do like however they {their parents} do not celebrate halloween either. Nothing good comes from halloween, especially the license it gives to all those raggedy kids to run around my neighborhood ringing doorbells and being a generally nuisance. I know, I know. I sound very old and crotchety but I can't help it.
These young whipper-snappers don't seem to understand that some people don't partake in this day! Ha.

{Cookies... any kind of cookies}
{Candy Corn Sugar Cookies}

As someone who does not celebrate Halloween, this time of year is simply the celebration of Fall for me and buying a lot of very cheap candy. Have I ever mentioned that Fall is my favorite season? Well, it is. I love everything about it. These are some of the things that I am loving... courtesy of Pinterest.

{Softball Evening}

I went to a softball game after work a little while ago and was able to confirm my weather theory. Since it has officially become Fall, whenever I have to be outside for any reason there is always some major seems like hurricane-force winds going on. It is out to get me. Yeah, friends have told me that I'm a little paranoid... but I don't believe that. It is out to get me.... and my little dog too...

{Extras | TV Shows}

Last week was pretty tough for me... a lot of little things came together to make my week just generally unpleasant it doesn't help that the temperature has dropped causing a little bit of a cold. The silver lining, to an other wise crappy week, has been coming home, getting into PJs and watching some TV. The shows I watched this week really brought me some joy... which I desperately needed because everyday I was this close to calling out of work. It is amazing how much even the littlest things can help.

{Frasier: Ham Radio on Netflix. My favorite episode. Full episodes on YouTube as well.}

{Smoking Gun's World's Dumbest... I had a mini marathon. Full episodes on YouTube.}

{BBC: Are You Being Served? My all-time favorite show! Hilarious!!! Full episodes on YouTube.}

{Scentportable: Island Margarita... used as a car freshener}

I rarely wash my car... well, about every three months. When it is time to have my oil changed, I go straight from AAFES Car Care to the car wash and get a full in and out wash. It is usually on this "car maintenance day" that I remember/take the time to change the car air freshener. I love the Bath & Body Works Scentportable... it definitely makes me happy when I have a fresh refill in the car.

{Fall Season Line-Up}

Sneakers: Puma| Pants: ON| Shirt: Rainbow

I am absolutely loving the new fall season of shows this year. I don't watch any most of the popular/network shows. And don't get me started on shows like American Idol, Dancing with the Stars, Jersey Shore, Glee, etc.... UGH!
All of my shows have come back for a new season {STOKED!} and I have added a few new ones...

My Fall Line-Up:
Amazing Race: One of the few game/competition shows that I watch... religiously. I love the concept. It is an actual race against the other teams... not a popularity contest.
Tough Love: I'm kind of ashamed to admit that I watch this dating boot camp show... however I don't think its the worst show considering the other shows on TV. 
Stormchasers: For some strange reason, I love this show. I can't really explain it. *shrugs*
Terra Nova: This is one of the new shows. It is kind of like Stargate SG1 meets Land of the Lost. Not really sold on the first episode, but I'll give them one more episode to draw me in.
Hoarders: I'm speechless every time I watch this show.
Ridiculousness: Okay. So even though I have seen the majority of these viral videos already, Rob Dyrdek puts a funny spin on them.
NCIS: Completely my mom's fault that I watch this show and just about every other crime solving show I watch. Love it. 
Rachel Zoe Project: Another show that I can't really explain why I watch... but I do.
MythBusters: Enough said. Good stuff.
Criminal Minds: Another crime solving show. The new season is on but I'm still trying to catch up from the last one. 
Psych: This show is so hilarious that it is kind of unreal. The new season premieres Oct. 12th. 
TruTV Presents: World's Dumbest: Simply funny stuff.
Project Runway: This is kind of a filler show for me. I'm only really interested in the runway show and the judges decision at the end of each episode. 
Kitchen Nightmares: love, Love, LOVE this show.
Saturdays usual consist of an assortment of shows that I missed during the week.

Do you have your shows planned out yet?

{Shower Gift for baby Aria Noelle}

As much as I don't really like all most children, Baby Shower gifts are, by far, the easiest gift for me to put together. 1. They are always gift baskets. & 2. They are always very practical. The only tough decision to make is which theme I should go with. For Baby Aria, it was "Tub Time." I mean really, what parent can't use head-to-toe baby body wash, baby lotion, baby oil, baby powder, baby q-tips or wash cloths at some point during their newborn child's life? It's not as if the kid is going to grow out of it. I do add little extras, {in this case, I added bath toys and a hooded bath towel} to bring the basket full circle. It can't be entirely serious
The kind of Baby Shower gift I like to give is things that can be stocked and used at the parents leisure. 

{Two amazing shades of nail polish. Sally Hansen: Steely Gaze & Sinful Colors: Savage (matte... yes!)}

{Kevin Hart: Laugh at My Pain.... Hilarious!!! Definitely a must see.}

{Haribo Gummi Candies. A must have whenever I go to the movie theatre.}

{Want: I really need some teal colored pants in my life.}
