faux fall

So it seems that Washington has perhaps started turning back towards her rainy ways.  I know that around this time of year the blogosphere starts to get a little autumn-crazy.  I went to Michaels this week and there were tons of halloween decorations, and I've been seeing autumn DIY's and inspiration on Pinterest already.  Part of me is still in denial that the summer is ending soon.  I'm sure I'll catch fall-fever at some point, though.  I'll start wanting to put pumpkin in everything and start talking about how excited I am to layer.  Still, the rain does feel good.  I think maybe my subconscious is starting to get excited for fall, because this is definitely a very fall outfit.  I've got a super fun party planned for Sunday, however, so it'd be nice if the rain would maybe hold off till after then.

While I'm not on the fall-train just yet, I did start getting excited about Thanksgiving yesterday.  I haven't hung out with my whole family since Christmas last year and it just hit me that I'm really looking forward with spending a weekend with them all.  Plus, I think we're having Thanksgiving somewhere we can bring Dusty, so it'll be a lot of fun to introduce her to the family!  By then she'll be so big!  She's only been with us a little over a week and she already feels bigger.
