didn’t i warn you? but it’s true. i just might live in this suede jacket for the duration of fall.

before the temps decided to heat up once again, we made a mad dash to our local pumpkin patch. and while ‘the great pumpkin’ was nowhere to be found we didn’t come home empty-handed either. actually, we scored three white pumpkins that were in pretty decent shape. and two potted white mums. now our porch is all spiffed up and ready for those crisp autumn days that are bound to return. this time around, we’ll be sipping apple cider instead of ice tea. i just might have to throw together a blog post of  ‘how we decorated our front porch for fall.’ any takers?

when i was tweaking the outdoor decor, oscar became quite enthralled with the pumpkins. why, you ask? who knows with that one… at one point, it looked as if pumpkin du jour was definitely on the lunch menu. i have to admit the mini white pumpkins appeared far more appetizing than his usual grain free sweet potatoes. thankfully, his attention was diverted. so i’m happy to report all of my fall decorations are still intact. unless you count my existing potted plants. it seems the squirrels are uprooting them due to burying their nuts. isn’t nature grand?

but y’all have to admit this ootd was the perfect choice for pumpkin picking. and a little porch is decorating.

happy hump day!
