Nashville Bound & the TBB ASKS Fall Edition

Hey friends! It's October 1st and I can't believe it, but I'm Nashville bound to meet some blogger friends for the first time! This trip has been on the calendar since the beginning of the year, but life and big changes kept this in the back recesses of my mind. Even now today hardly feels real. If it weren't for the fact that I'm sitting in the airport preparing to board a plane, I'd still believe I dreamed up this adventure. 

Before I get on with those Fall questions I need, I mean, I NEED to tell you that I found these black jeans at Costco. Are you rolling your eyes right now? This busy mom is getting her fashion done at Costco all the time lately, but when you're in the market for black jeans and you see a pair for $7.00, what else are ya gonna do?! These jeans will be on repeat in Nashville and beyond because they are super comfy. Thank you Costco and thank you Jones New York. Good job you guys.

Here's a sneak peak at another outfit I plan on wearing...

I just remembered where I am...Passengers are lined up, packed up, sitting in corners, people watching and I'm sitting here sheepishly typing because I had not the time to get this post finished last night!! 

 It's morning so daylight streams in, Spanx is on my right - because you never know when you'll have a lingerie-suck-em-in emergency, right? Over the loudspeaker, more announcements chime and let us know that it's time to get ready to board. 

That being said I better get on with it and tell you that I'm excited and nervous all at the same time. I'll be keeping you informed on Instagram stories for sure, so I hope you'll find me there. Also, included in today's line up in the TBB ASKS for October, so be sure to scroll down for some tasty, tempestuous, treats in the form of text! ;) 

Favorite Fall Color? Those gorgeous, vibrants reds that leaves magically change into in the North Georgia mountains. They take my breath away. Now that I'm in Florida, I may need to find a new fall color!

Apple Cider: Hot or Cold? It's always been hot, but who knows what this year may hold for me in the cider department!

Caramel Apple: Yes or No? If you dip it in a smattering a peanuts, it's going to be a big yes!

Pumpkin Doughnut or Apple Cider Doughnut: Pumpkin first, then I'll chase it down with the apple cider.

Long or Short Cardigan: I love longer cardigans...even in the Florida heat!

Favorite Football or Fall Party Food? Hmmm....this might still be chips, salsa and cheese dip...all year long!

Orange or White Pumpkins? I love the trending fall pumpkins but I can't turn my back on the orange. One is currently sitting on my coffee table.

Hayride or Bonfire: both!

Favorite Fall Baked Goods: NEW for me! Pumpkin Whoopie Pies! Though I'd love to run up to Splat for one of their Pumpkin Cupcakes!!!

Most anticipated fall activity? This used to be apple picking, but the boys grew too busy in sports. We need to find some new activities here in Florida!

Ok! That's all for today my friends! More updates, affordable fashion, a little crunchy and real life stories to come!

Love ya!!
