Fall Home Decor Featuring Buffalo Plaid & Burlap

Fall Home Decor Featuring Buffalo Plaid & Burlap

Fall makes me so happy! There’s just something about those shorter days and somewhat cooler temps (this IS the south after all) that makes me want to deck our home in festive fall style. Fall is actually my favorite season, I adore pumpkins and mums and leaves and plaids and all things cozy and warm and welcoming. Even though I have PLENTY of fall decor in the attic waiting for me to put out every year, I still find myself shopping for new fall decorations, and so I thought I’d share some of the fun things I’m swooning over this year.

Instant Pot Bacon & Rosemary Potato Salad

Instant Pot Bacon & Rosemary Potato Salad

This delicious potato salad has been a family staple of ours for years. It was introduced to us by my brother in law John, who is a fabulous cook. The recipe was passed down from his grandmother, and I’d like to give him (and his grandmother) full credit, and a huge word of thanks for sharing it with me so many years ago. I love family recipes that have history behind them, don’t you? I’ve always made this potato salad the traditional way, boiling the potatoes in one pan, and cooking the other ingredients in another – basically making a huge mess in my kitchen. But this year, as Independence Day approached I started mulling over the idea of preparing the salad in my Instant Pot, and just decided to go for it! It turned out so good, and was so super easy to prepare, I thought I’d share the recipe with you.

Stitch Fix Reveal| July Jumpsuits

I just received my July Stitch Fix, and I am so excited to share it with you! As we all know, the Covid pandemic has changed quite a few things, one of which is how we shop and retail in general. I’m a very tactile person, and I’ve really missed going to stores, and picking out and trying on clothes. Shopping is my cardio! This is one instance where it’s really paid off to be a die-hard “Stitch-Fixer” – my stylist sends me cute things, but instead of a dressing room, I try them on in the comfort of my own home. And it’s ALWAYS a nice surprise to come home after a long day at work to find that box of happy waiting on my front porch!
