Fall Magic has Returned

HELLO SEPTEMBER!!

Oh my gosh! I am so happy!!

I say this every year but September 1st truly does jumpstart the best time of year!

The last 4 months of the year are SO amazing! There’s magic all in the air! From cool weather, changing color of leaves, all the many traditions, holidays, and so much more!

I LOVE IT!

We love it so much so that…

Harry proposed on Halloween night!

And we got married the week of Christmas!

We are BIG on holidays over here! Especially Christmas and Halloween!

Ahh! Just so, so happy!!

Okay, today I am blogging all things FALL: fall decor, fall attire, fall outfits for baby, traditions, and I’m leaving you with a fun, fall recipe!

We decorated the house for fall/ Halloween 3 days ago! The decor makes my heart so happy!

This little pumpkin comes to Target every year and it’s just so adorable!

Shop, here: Woven Pumpkin

I purchased two pillows extremely similar to this last year! They sit in my two matching chairs in our living-room!

I purchased this exact sweater last fall and I can’t wait to wear it again this year! It’s so soft, the color screams fall, and it’s a great length for leather leggings, etc!

Shop, here: Brick Sweater

I also own these jeans from the Mint Julep Boutique! They are my absolute favorite! They’re stretchy and oh so comfortable! I don’t even notice that I’m wearing jeans because they’re just so comfy! I love the flare look too!

I own a super similar green dress just like this one! It’s so easy to throw on, especially with this transitional weather! It’s another great color for this time of year + Christmas too!

Shop, here: Hunter Green Dress

Add to cart, please! How gorgeous is this?! I’m obsessed!! This dress is so flattering with the design, long puff sleeves, and length!

Are you looking for new fall traditions this year?! This bucket list covers all of the fun things!! Take a screenshot and make the best traditions with your family this year!

I’m going to leave you with this pumpkin brownie recipe that I’ve shared before over the years by MixandMatchMama!

Ingredients

1 box chocolate cake mix
1/4 cup vegetable oil
1/3 cup milk
4 eggs, divided
3 (8 oz) packages cream cheese, softened
2 1/2 cups powdered sugar
1 tablespoon pumpkin pie spice
1 cup of canned pumpkin
2 tablespoons cocoa powder

Directions

Preheat oven to 350 degrees

Grease (I use Pam) a 9×13 inch baking dish and set aside.

 In a small bowl, combine cake mix, vegetable oil, milk and one egg.  Pat evenly into pan to form a crust.  Bake about 8 minutes.  Remove from oven

Meanwhile, in a separate bowl, beat cream cheese until fluffy.  Beat in powdered sugar.  Next, beat in remaining 3 eggs and beat until smooth.  At this point, divide your mixture into two separate bowls.  In your first bowl, beat in pumpkin pie spice and pumpkin.  Smooth this mixture over the top of your crust in one thin layer.  Next, take your second bowl and beat in your cocoa powder.  Spread this mixture down over your pumpkin mixture in another layer.  Take a knife and lightly swirl the two top layers together until they look marbled.

  Bake 40-50 minutes or until set.

After you remove it from the oven, let it rest 30 minutes on the counter before refrigerating at least two hours before slicing and serving.

Keep refrigerated when you’re not enjoying the bars.

Happy Fall, Y’all!

And Happy, Happy Labor Day weekend!
