"Fall"ing in Love

Fall-my absolute favorite season.

Sometimes I have had second thoughts about my June wedding and wonder if maybe I should have waited until fall.

I can't wait to see more pumpkins and the changing of the leaves-one of West Virginia's truly glorious wonders.

I am usually even ready for fall and winter clothing-however, this season I'm not crazy about much.

Here is the highlights of what I like so far.

This coat from Newport News is pretty cute-however, I always hesitate about the belted waist. The waist is not my trimest of areas.
I'm loving the banded look from Target-however, I always feel pregnant in these styles-and I'm definitely not pregnant.

This tunic from Newport News would be super cute belted-it seems these looks I like will never work on me.
Although not a fan of this sweater, I'm digging the fall scrafs. I think they add something really cute to the outfit.
I just love the richness of fall and wish I could change my whole house decor for this time of the year-not rich enough for that yet. :)

Mr. McB's Recent Project

Have I mentioned that I have the best husband? Well, I do.

Getting married fairly young (early-mid 20s), Mr. McB and I have had to handle some hand-me-downs in our life-especially hand-me-down furniture. My mother-in-law was gracious enought to give us her old dressers. We have two matching pieces, but they were stained different colors and had old hardware. Needless to say, the dressers were not Mr. McB and my style.

We decided to refinish them and one day while I was at work, I come home to this.

Our dresser-stripped and sitting in the middle of our place. That evening-my life revolved around this.

The painting of our old furniture. I was thrilled for the process to be happening so soon.

After hours of painting and hours of letting the paint dry and lots of money and wedding gift cards spent on the perfect hardware, Mr. McB and I have beautiful, brand new dressers.

Our beautiful dressers (please ignore the dog blanket in the floor).

What do you think? Did Mr. McB do a good job?

Some random facts about yours truly:
1. I can't wait to finish this year of graduate school and move away. Although I'll miss everyone, Mr. McB and I need to start off elsewhere.
2. We just watched two of our best friends and their little girl move to GA. I already miss them like crazy and I don't know how I'll function without them.
3. I love dressing professional, but I also can't wait until the weekends to wear sweatsuits.
4. I have a true obsession with shopping-especially for clothes and house stuff.
5. The world confuses me sometimes-especially when you begin to drift away from people you thought you'd be best friends with forever.
6. I love to travel and I'm not as spoiled and as big a girl as everyone thinks. I love camping and the outdoors.
