What I'm Loving Wednesday 9/23

What I'm Loving Wednesday

Since today is the first day of fall, I decided to make today's "loving" entry about all things related to autumn.  

I'm loving ...

... all things jewel-toned.
I went shopping the other day, and found myself trying on clothes in colors like deep teal, emerald green, and merlot.

... all the pumpkin beers.
I've already tried a few, including Punk Nut from 515 Brewing (of course), Imperial Pumpkin Stout from Millstream, and Pumpkinhead Ale from Shipyard, but I have to say my favorite so far is Funky Pumpkin from Boulevard. This sour makes the best use of pumpkin flavor while not being too sweet or spicy. I love it.  And I'm looking forward to trying Hocus Pocus Porter, a pumpkin pie porter I made with a friend recently.

... my Apple Press Scentsy bars.
While I enjoy pumpkin things, apples are really the star of fall for me. This is my favorite bar to break out when the leaves start to turn.

... that I'm in second place in my fantasy football league.
I was a little worried about my Ginja Ninjas when my draft received a C grade, but I've won two weeks in a row.  And this week, I had the highest number of points!!

... late-season baseball.
As I mentioned yesterday, my Rangers are right in the thick of the post-season hunt. They've fallen off a bit the past week or so, but I'm hoping they can pick it up and let me enjoy baseball beyond Oct. 4.  This is when things get fun.  And nerve-wracking.

What are your favorite things about fall?

Tomorrow, check back to see how I did with my summer to-do list and what's on my agenda for the next few months.


  1. Nice! I love pumpkin but I also love apples too. Want to make it out to some orchards over the next few weeks :)
    I gotta get myself trying some pumpkin beers too!

  2. Ugh. I just got my alert that my Angels just gave Houston the lead in the 8th. Not good.

    I LOVE apple scented stuff. Way more than pumpkin scented stuff.

    Great job on Fantasy Football! Chris's family does a pick 'em league and I'm not faring so well.

  3. This is going to sound like the world's biggest first-world problem, but I need more Scentsy for fall and I have no Scentsy person. So disappointing.

    I like the Pumpkinhead Ale.

  4. I've always been obsessed with a few jewel tones, but Biana recently did a post on emerald green and I didn't realize just how much I loved it. Now I want it everything in that color.

  5. Thanks for linking up!! :) I so need to be better about promoting the link up, it's more work than I thought. Lol. I'm one of those people who don't like pumpkin flavored anything. But I'm glad you are enjoying trying new beers!

    GO RANGERS!! I never thought we would be in this position this season. What a nice turnaround! :)

  6. I love the jewel tones this season! It's very '90s and I love it!! Apple is my favorite thing about fall too. Apple cider scented and flavored everything, please!
