Hey lovelies! How’s your Friday going? Any exciting plans for the weekend? We are headed to Sedona for a quick getaway and I’m weak in my knees with excitement.

Ever since a quick Sedona stop on the way from the Polar Express in Flagstaff a few years ago I fell in love with the lovely red rocks and the breath-taking views of the canyons. All this time I have been dreaming about going back and it’s finally happening!! The trip is mostly a treat for my mom who is visiting but kiddos and I are very happy to tag along 😉

Also… I blinked and we’re half-way through September. How did this happen? Labor Day officially kicks off my favorite season. We’re still in the 100’s here in Arizona, and it may be hard to get in the Fall spirit. But that’s won’t stop me from enjoying all the favorite Fall things.

On that happy note, I decided to start a Friday tradition of sharing with you my favorite finds, inspirations, recipes and fun facts. Here are this week’s faves:

Rae Dunn Mugs and especially this one. I just discovered them on a friend’s IG and instantly fell in love with a lovely rustic design. I want them all!

Fellow Rae Dunn fans, where do you buy your mugs? Every single online store is sold out. I’m am desperate to find a mug that’s not over-priced at $99.

Starbucks Pumpkin Spiced Lattes. Because what says Hello Fall better than a warm sugary drink? I usually order mine with almond milk. YUM! Here is a a recipe if you want to try it at home.

Fall decorations. Ok friends, tell me who busted their Fall decor out? My favorite pumpkin themed pillows are already out but I haven’t brought in the “Halloween/Thanksgiving” box from the garage yet. It needs to happen soon.

Sugar Lip Caramel Hydrating Balm by Fresh. I just bought this one at Sephora and it’s the BEST. Low humidity and hard water often cause chapped lips, but this balm leaves my lips silky smooth. I also found that unlike other lip balms, with Sugar Lip Balm I don’t have to continuously re-apply it.

These Booties from Nordstrom. They would look so cute with skinny jeans or flowey dresses. I can see them being casual or more dressy depending on your outfit. I’ll be on the lookout for a sale!

Morning runs. I am so looking forward to cooler weather so I can start running outside again. During the summer, I’ve kept up with a tread mill at the gym but it’s just not the same.

Pumpkin Flavored Treats. Last year I was obsessed with pumpkin muffins and brownies. The funny thing is that as soon as Christmas was over, so was my appetite for all things pumpkin. But now it’s all baaaaaack! Can’t wait to start baking and sharing my healthy pumpkin desserts with you! Here are 15 Pumpkin Inspired Cookie recipes to get your started 🙂

This video cracks me up every.single.time. Check it out if you need some positive vibes. I’m sad to miss an awesome function this guy will host in Vegas next weekend. Hopefully next time!

Inspirational Fitness Tanks. My friends from Inspiration Fit released a new collection and I am so excited to check it out. I own two of their tanks and they are so soft. These tanks have a flattering fit around shoulders are long enough to cover your bum.

This Santa Fe Slow Cooker Recipe. Something about Fall makes me want to make every meal in a slow cooker. This recipe looks easy and delicious. I’ll be adding it to our meal plan for next week.

I’d love to hear what things make you excited! Have you busted out your Fall decor yet? A favorite pumpkin inspired recipe to share?

Hope you have a lovely weekend.
