I’m loving Fall. If it would just cool down a bit more I could start dragging out all my sweaters! I want to get straight to the party but because I love you and I love sharing, I want to share a few things with you first.

 Have you heard about Online Blocon? It’s a blogging conference, you got it, online, no traveling. Headed up buy a couple of my favorite bloggers Dorothy from Crazy for Crust and Ashton from Something Swanky. There’s even a giveaway for a Kindle Fire. You can click here for all the details. I can’t wait, I’m thinking about getting these slippers just for the conference. 

Common, you know if I had to go in person, I’d get a few new outfits!
