These are a few of my favorite things...

01. Autumn
It is getting cooler... which I love! Sadly there are no red and orange hued leaves out my window, but I can make do if the weather is going to turn cool and crisp.  It was even cool enough this morning for my fuzzy polka dot socks! 

02. Rain
Yesterday it rained! I love the sound and the smell of rain!  I also love rain boots, umbrellas, and raincoats. 

03. Apple Crisp
The most yummy dessert!  It says fall like nothing else.  Must be served warm with vanilla bean ice cream.  (Confession: I had two helpings of it tonight.)

04. Clean Laundry
I did all my laundry at Rachelle and Joe's this weekend. Nothing like neatly folded stacks of clean, fresh laundry!  

05. Fresh Flowers
I purchased some tulips at the grocery store last night. There is just something about fresh flowers that makes me smile!

06. Conference
I love conference weekends! It is so nice to relax, enjoy good food, and listen to the Prophet and other church leaders.  I especially loved President Monson's talk during the Sunday Morning session on change and enjoying the journey. It was a good message of hope for all and I found myself really connecting with it.  Sometimes I feel like I get bogged down by the unimportant things.  Its always good to be reminded to focus on the simple things and to remember to live and love each day.

07. Blueberry Muffins
I love making homemade blueberry muffins. I love the blueberry goodness! (Hint: Even better than the muffins is the batter!)

08. Eyelashes
Brittney comes into town this next weekend! What does that mean? Eyelashes! I get my extensions replenished! I have had them for just over a month and I am hooked. Luscious lashes without mascara... who would have thought?

09. iTunes
Previewing and then buying new tunes with just a click! Sheer genius... 
Some of my latest faves:
Bennie and the Jets (Elton John)
On My Mind (Kalai) thanks Cassie for the recommendation!
Remember That and Come on Over (Jessica Simpson) I am loving her as a country singer...
Forever (Chris Brown) "Girl where did you come from, got me so undone."
Love Remains the Same (Gavin Rossdale)
Love Story (Taylor Swift)

10. Visitors
My family comes out on the 15th for the weekend, Candace and Jared are coming over Halloween, and Grandma and Grandpa Miller are coming out over Halloween too! Yay for visitors!

Yeah for visitors! I just love hearing those words that I'm coming to see you. It's just been too darn long.

I'm glad you enjoyed conference and your weekend.

Love you!

I didn't know you were living in CA. Sounds like you are having a great time. We moved to San Diego in August. We should see each other some time!
