Lake Sunset

Last weekend my family took a trip to Lake of the Ozarks in Missouri. I took a ridiculous amount of pictures this trip, including some of this beautiful sunset. It was the last boat ride of the summer and a great end to the season.

Polka Dots

I probably have way too many shirts/sweaters with stripes or polka dots, but I am loving these polka dot sweaters from C Wonder.

Movies for October

These movies (and TV show) all give me that warm and fuzzy feeling of Autumn:

The whole movie is not set in Fall, but the scenes that are set in Fall are beautiful.

A spooky movie for Halloween-which is on a level of spookiness I can handle.

One of my favorite movies. Collegiate atmosphere and fantastic soundtrack.

The academic atmosphere always reminds me of Fall and the beginning of the school year excitement.  I miss school days! 

One of my favorite tv shows. I miss the show being on the air, but I do enjoy rewatching episodes on DVD. Once again, not all of the show is set in Autumn, but out of the 7 seasons, quite a few episodes are set in the Autumn months. The fictional small New England town of Stars Hollow is a perfect Fall setting. I think I'm going to need to watch this series again.....

Any favorite movies/TV shows that you like to watch in the Fall months?

Taste of St. Louis

Last weekend I went to the Taste of St. Louis with my family. The weather was perfect, the Rams, and the Cardinals were playing in town (and both won!), and it was overall a great atmosphere for a day downtown.

Some of the food we enjoyed:
-Extra dark chocolate sea salt bark from Kakao. My favorite.
-General Tso Chicken from Hot Wok Cafe
-Sweet potato casserole from Ruth's Chris Steakhouse
-Creamy Reuben soup from Monty's Sandwich Company
-Green Curry from Manee Thai
-White Chocolate Raspberry Gooey Butter Cake from Park Avenue Coffee
-Shrimp & Scallop Cerviche from Yemanja Brasil Restaurante
-Tamale from Siete Luminarias Mexican Restaurant

We loved everything we tried. Maybe we went a little overboard? But, we did share all of these dishes! I am now looking forward to the Shaw Art Fair and Best of Missouri Market.

Built-in Bookshelves

Even though I have an ereader I still find myself accumulating traditional books. Every year I go to a few book fairs and I can't help but buy a tote full when books are as cheap as $1. I end up sharing books with friends, but then I end up holding on to them. This would be fine if I had a little more space. Currently I have books everywhere, with no organization. I'm looking forward to the day that I can have room for some bookshelves. Built-in book bookshelves would be especially nice. I think through the years I will cut back a little bit, but I'd like to hold on to my favorites and my hard back Penguin classic collections.
Here are a few built-in bookshelves that caught my eye on Pinterest:
