    I don’t know whether to comment on the outfit, the food, the table setting or Ollie’s handsome pictures. Everything is just perfect! Enjoy the cooler weather!


    That chili looks so good! I can’t wait to make it! Thank you.

  3. Trisha Lee Eldredge says:

    Beth, I love the sweater and the chili recipe. Would you please tell us where Ollie has gotten to. We haven’t seen her in a long time. I enjoyed her laid back attitude!
    Thanks for the daily dose of class!

  4. Paula says:

    Beth, this looks like a really good chili recipe. I do not have an Insta Pot you mention to get one. I may have to try that. I like to use my crock pot and this seems like it works much like it only much faster.
    Love the pictures of Oscar. Have a great weekend. It’s definitely much cooler here in Wisconsin.

    Hi Beth, I love your blog and posts – today’s is awesome! I agree, not sure which to comment on first.

    But what I’d really like to know is if you could give us a little bit more regarding the clothing items fit and maybe the sizes you were and what size you bought. I find that Everlane never puts lengths of particuliarly their sweaters. But this would help give us (me) a reference. Thanks Beth!
    Going to try this recipe this weekend – and as usual – I LOVE THE TABLESCAPES!
    Have a great weekend

    Love your pumpkin bowls!
    Speaking of breweries, my family will be touring Rhinegeist in Cincinnati this weekend!

    We are starting on demolition of our shoddily built ‘sunroom’ this weekend, so that we can re-do it properly. It’s a DIY project for us, one of the last things to do on the fixer-upper we bought 9 years ago. So my weekend style is not going to be very stylish!

    But my husband is a brewer, and we still have some beer left over from our 200 person Oktoberfest party a couple of weeks ago. It’s all kegged, so we have some great beer for us and our helpers – everyone loves demo day!

      Hi Beth
      The chili looks yummy, and I just love Trader Joe’s! The sweater is a great staple for fall and winter. I like the look of your whole outfit. Tonight it is off to a jazz concert. Your outfit or similar would look great! Tomorrow night it’s off to the Iowa-Penn State football game. It sure gets cold here in Iowa! I’m getting out the long underwear!

  9. Rebecca says:

    Great post and photos! You looking amazing and I’m looking forward to adapting this Friday’s outfit. Enjoy your weekend.

  10. Jo Oneal says:

    Thanks for the chili recipe and cute outfit. It looks delicious and perfect for a cozy fall weekend! The pumpkin bowls are a great addition!
    We are off to our cabin in the OZarks this weekend to a neighborhood fall gathering and I have some leopard print items packed to wear.
    Hmm…I need to set a fall table too while we are there.
    Enjoy your weekend and as always luv the pics of sweet Oscar!

  11. Lisa says:

    Fridays with Oscar — another reason to look forward to Friday each week. The chili recipe looks great!

  12. Connie says:

    Thanks for the instant pot recipe. I’m afraid of mine and haven’t used it yet. I told my husband it was a “tool” not an appliance. So far I’ve gotten away with that since he makes yogurt in it every week. I think its time I braved a chili recipe by myself! I love decorating for fall. I keep a table scape in both the dining room and breakfast nook. Just sit down and enjoy a festive meal!

  13. Gillyflower says:

    I make my cornbread with 2 boxes of Jiffy in a square pan and drizzle the top with honey before baking.

  14. Lael Arrington says:

    Finally, FINALLY it’s feeling a bit fallish here in SC too. I use apples and nuts and fall leaves for my dining room tablescape and change out the plates in the kitchen hutch for Tuesday Morning plates with deer, ducks and pheasants. Tomorrow…it’s the SC Gamecocks vs. your Bulldogs! Don’t know that we have a chance, but we’ll enjoy burgers with friends, watching the game and commiserating with each other when it’s over. Go Cocks!

  15. Debra says:

    Looks like a trip to Trader Joe’s for me today! I was looking for an idea for dinner this evening and read your blog. The chili sounds perfect! I, too, LOVE my Instant Pot and use it all the time for amazing recipes. Thanks for the great recipe and have a wonderful weekend!

  16. Ann says:

    Love your blog posts and especially Fridays with Oscar.
    I know I ask everytime I see this lovely color lipstick you wear. Will you please share the brand and color! I am seriously crushing on it each post you wear it!!

  17. Sharon Mulliken says:

    WOW! I couldn’t believe what I saw when I opened your blog today….I, too, was making chili and cornbread for dinner! (for cornbread, I use the Jiffy mix and make corn muffins. we love them!) But what was really weird, was that I was wearing black slacks and a beige sweater with a white blouse! What I wasn’t thinking of was leopard flats….so I put some on and out the door I went. I got a compliment at the beauty shop! I guess I am finally learning some fashion sense lol For our activities this weekend, we are going to see the movie Judy tomorrow night. I’ve heard really good things about it. Then Sunday we are taking kids and grands on our annual quest for pumpkins at the patch and then out for burgers. All fun stuff, and I am excited. Our weather here in Omaha is perfect fall right now. Thanks for your blog, your fashion and interior design tips and just for being YOU. Your blog is the highlight of each day. Hang in there, you are amazing. Sharon

  18. Nancy Reed says:

    great ideas with the Chili. Hope to use soon. I just love your site!!

  19. Suzanne M Smith says:

    Sounds like a fun weekend. And chili is perfect now that the temps are cooling down. We had some the other night and I love that it makes enough for leftovers. Hope you get a chance to enjoy your family–that’s great they’re visiting!

  20. Robyn says:

    Great outfits, I will definitely use this one for style inspiration!

  21. Sarah says:

    Beautiful outfit and table! I have that same outfit and shoes except my sweater is gray! I’ll have a full house for Thanksgiving and your menu will be perfect. Ordering the bowls! Trying a new restaurant tonight and then home in time to watch UF best LSU🙏😬

  22. Sue says:

    This weekend is Canada’s Thanksgiving. So we will be having turkey for sure, but traditional style! That recipe looks good for later in the week.

  23. AnnaM. says:
