Friday's Favorites: Fall is Here!

So, I think Fall has become my new favorite season. Now that I'm old enough to actually notice how hot it gets outside in the summer, that season is out. I do love living in a place that gets all 4 seasons. The cooler weather isn't the only reason why I love Fall though. Here's some more:

Pasta e Fagioli from Olive Garden
I love soup. I eat it several days a week for lunch, and if I get the chance to make a big batch in the crock pot I'm all over that. One of my favorites is Pasta e Fagioli from Olive Garden. I found this fun copycat recipe and made it earlier in the week with my sister (Lee's not a huge fan of soup so I often make it when he's out of town). Can you say delicious? My next goal is to find a good recipe for chicken tortilla soup which is probably my other favorite. Any suggestions?

Tall brown boots from Target
I've grown to love the boot trend, and I'm in fact wearing my pair of knock-offs I got a few years ago in Asia (they're supposed to look like Dolce and Gabbana but they have D&D instead of D&G so I'm really wearing Dungeons and Dragons boots!) I'm looking for a good deal on a brown pair. They make me feel so trendy (even though I'm definitely behind on the trend).

Wool Toggle Coat from Old Navy
I really love getting to wear coats. I think this one from Old Navy is gorgeous. I'm hoping to get it with the free outerwear coupon I got from Crowdtap. On this website you answer questions about all kinds of different brands and sometimes you earn money or get to sample products (so far I've gotten products from Old Navy and Hawaiian Tropic). Anyway, love coats.

This doesn't have anything to do with Fall, but I found out about something this morning I thought I'd share. UPS is offering something called My Choice. If you've ever had the problem of missing a UPS package this will let you receive notification of when the package will be delivered (I think you can upgrade to find out the 2 hour window), but most importantly for me, you can sign for your package online if you aren't going to be home. I'm looking forward to testing this out since I'm never home when they deliver stuff. Oh, and you're automatically entered into a giveaway, so bonus!

What are some of your favorite Fall related things?

P.S. The Crowdtap link is a referral link so I get a little somethin' somethin' if you sign up through it.
