Friday Favorites: PSL & Fall Favorites Link Up Announcement

 Hi all!  This post is going to be short and sweet.  My mom is heading my way, and I have got to finish cleaning for her arrival!

I don't think it will be a surprise to anyone, but one of my favorite things this week was the release of the Pumpkin Spice Latte!  

The PSL was what reignited my love for coffee.  When we would have lunch or dinner with my extended family, there would always be coffee after.  I used to beg to have a little with them when I was younger - I just loved it!  Then, something happened as I got older and I developed a huge aversion to coffee - both the taste and the smell were just so blah to me.  A few years back, though, I decided to try a PSL to see what the hype was about.  After hearing about how so many people loved them, I wanted to see if it really was that great.  Well, I after one taste and I became one of those people that loved them, too!  And now I am a big coffee (with creamer) fan.

I grabbed a PSL on Tuesday, and it was as delicious as I remember.  So happy it's back!

Now, moving on to the link up announcement.  For the past 4 years, Sarah (Meet the Shaneyfelts) and I have done a Fall Favorites link up throughout the month of September.  This year will be no different!  We both are big fans of fall, and I think of this link up as a fun way to start off the season.

Starting after Labor Day, each Wednesday we will be posting about specific fall-related topics, and would absolutely love for you to do the same and link up!

The topics are as follows:

September 9 - Fall Scents

I will be sharing some of my favorite fall candles, as well as my favorite fall scented soaps!  If you do essential oils, I would love to read about your favorite combinations - I am still deciding whether or not to dabble in that world, but fall seems like a pretty good time to do so!

September 16 - Fall Decorating

Some of my favorite posts to read are home tours, specifically seasonal home tours, so that is what this day is all about!  As I mentioned above, my mom is coming this weekend and she is going to help me get all decorated for fall.  I cannot wait!

September 23 - Fall Fashion

I am hoping by the time this post rolls around, the weather will be a bit cooler and we can be wearing real fall clothes.  That's probably wishful thinking, but you never know!

September 30 - Fall Entertainment

We left this topic pretty vague, but the thought behind it was the different tv shows, movies, books, magazines, etc. that are set in fall, or make you feel fall-like.  Really, whatever works!

We hope you'll join us for our 5th annual Fall Favorites link up!  Feel free to link up to just one post, or all (we'd love that!).
