Texas Weather

The weather and seasons in Texas are so different than Maryland. We’re only seven days into November and the temperatures so far have been anywhere from 53 degrees to 85 degrees! When I think of November, I’m ready to put on boots, scarves, gloves, and a jacket before I go outside. Yet that it not the norm here. The weather has been really nice lately, especially after the time fell back and the evenings are beautifully cool. The sky has be quite beautiful as well.

I love looking up in the evening to be caught off guard by this beautiful sky. Now that November is progressing it is more cool than warm outside, and I’ve already freed my scarves from their storage prison. I’m so ready for any cool days that Texas has to offer. I hope the beautiful weather continues because my Mom is coming to visit and I want Texas to show off it’s nice Autumn days!

Christmas is coming…. No wait it’s here

Christmas Collage

There is an infestation of all things Christmas and holiday at my local Target. I ventured in yesterday to pick up a few groceries, since my Target is a Super Target, and would not have guessed that it was the first week of November. I’m all about Christmas, I love it and the candy and the smells and foods and everything. However I know most people feel that it’s way too early to start celebrating Christmas, because Thanksgiving isn’t even here yet! I pretty much agree, but I do know I’ll probably start listening to Christmas music soon because I can’t resist.

Speaking of things I cannot resist, I have to admit that I bought two of the things in those pictures… Sugar-free Peppermint Mocha Coffeemate Creamer and a small box of Candy Canes. Coffeemate’s version of the Peppermint Mocha creamer is by far the best! It’s my all time favorite flavor and the only time I can find the extra large bottle of the sugar-free variety is around the holidays. I’ll will definitely be stocking up. I also just love Candy Canes and feel no shame in purchasing these within the first five days of November.

One thing I will be going back for when I find a Glade coupon, which are usually easy to find, is this candle. I currently burn their 2 in 1 Apple Cinnamon Cheer and Creamy Custard candle all the time and love it. I will either be picking up this 2 in 1 version, or maybe just the Sparkling Spruce because it is a very light and sweet pine candle. I can’t wait till I put up my tree and decorate my apartment for the first time and string up all my lights and burn some Christmas candles. Enough about Christmas though, lets enjoy Autumn while we can!

Time for Scarves!

It is now time to break out my scarves for the fall and winter! I love scarves. They are the best functional accessory and pretty much go with everything. I love all different colors and styles! Although my favorite has got to be infinity scarves, because they’re so simple to wear.

Today I brought them all out of their box in my closet and found a new way to store them. I saw the idea online somewhere and it was really easy to do. Just pull the scarf into a loop around the hanger, and you can fit three to four on each one!
