Friday Link Love

It’s the first day of fall, ladies and gents! I feel like I should be doing something special like burning a PSL while dancing around in Ugg boots waving a plaid blanket scarf. You know, something seasonally appropriate. I am at least wearing the single plaid shirt I own. I thought about stopping through Starbucks or something for hot cider, but it’s about 80 degrees outside right now, and as much a my little heart wants to believe it’s fall, my head knows I am still at least a month out. It probably won’t stop me from a little bit of indulgence though. I mean, I have already gone apple picking and made baked goods from said apples. There’s no going back from that. Besides, I still have a veggie crisper full of hand picked apples, so I can’t stop baking any time soon. So many apples. #sorrynotsorry

This season, my favorite season, has to be started by watching Matt Bellassai Wine About It: Why Fall is the Worst. I love fall, but this makes me laugh so hard. Plus the bit about pumpkin is 100% true. Just saying.

If unlike me, your partner is interested in participating in seasonally themed shenanigans, here are 10 Charming Fall Date Ideas.

Also, now that I know they exist, I need these fairy light filled pumpkins in my life.

I read something very exciting, Practical Magic, one of my favorite movies/books is getting a prequel in November! The Rules of Magic will be about the aunts, Jett & Frances, and their mysterious brother Vincent. I can’t wait!

I’ve never made a whole lot of bundt cakes, but this recipe for Vanilla Bean Bundt Cake with Pecan Praline Glaze… yeah, that sounds amazing.

Evidently, being a royal isn’t all gracious waving and tiara wearing; there are rules. Some important, some ridiculous, but still rules!

About Julie

My name is Julieanna Bucior, but I go by Julie (unless I’m in trouble). I’m thirty one. I am a bookkeeper by day, rogue fashion designer/crafter/amateur baker by night. I spend most of my time feeling like a kindergartner trapped inside an adult’s body. I love reading, hanging out with my crazy cats and being silly. I’m pretty much the girl next door, with a twist.
