Finally temps all week have been sweater weather cooperating. Football bye week for our boy and Notre Dame, So I am super excited for a fun adventure with my Mr. Nine. Weather does not look great, darn you wind and rain but we make it fun no matter. What are you all doing this weekend? Let’s talk Favs a minute and Happy Fri-YAY! But October you can sloooow down please! 

1. This Sweater and AE
I know you’ve probably seen my first official Insta Flat Lay but why I’m including it in the blog and why I am so excited is because American Eagle contacted me and asked to use it. What really is funny is that I didn’t even tag them til a couple days after it posted because well, I’m a newbie but pretty cool. And since so many of you loved this sweater, I’m linking it for ya! It is just the best color but I’m pondering done others as well because it is the greatest Fall essential! 

2. Fall Find ~ Easel Sign
I want to go Whoa, Wait, Big Lots!!! Yep, I had not been in a Big Lots in years but wow, have they amped up their game. So many cute seasonal things including this adorable easel sign. Can’t decide it I want it inside or outside?

Since Sweater weather is finally sticking around, Here’s a few more sweaters I’ve gotten for Fall.

The Week in Posts
And it case you missed it, I shared The Fall Indoor DecorChunky Turkey Sausage Chili in the crock pot and one of my favorite fashion posts: Pumpkin Spice in Nashville where my friends and I sported Matching tees at a pumpkin patch and where the Etsy shop owner is offering 20% off her cute tees with a promo code!

Happy Weekend!

Flannels, Leggings and Pumpkin Spice! The epitome of Fall. When we first started looking at the weather, it looked like this would be our type of attire for the Nashville trip but then the Fall heat wave struck and we opted for more of our Summer attire. However, that didn’t stop us from finding the sweetest 12th Avenue pumpkin patch and getting some fun photos. I knew I wanted us to have a matching Fall Tee picture so I ordered These CUTE Tees for us from Etsy. I got us all a large so we actually could wear them with leggings and knot them up. AND GUESS What? The Owner of the Etsy Shop, Shop at Bash, is offering 20% off to all our readers with the Code: PUMPKIN 
Girls, she has the CUTEST stuff, I got us little drawstring Nash Bash Gift Bags too.

I needed a few more phots and really wanted to do the whole flannel and leggings with it, so on a HOT 85 degree day last week, we headed to a local Pumpkin patch for a few shoots. Believe me the flannel got thrown off quickly and our temps this week are so crisp Fall 50's Fabulous!

Sometimes you just need a chunky, hearty, soul warming chili! Yes, good old-fashioned regular chili that I make a lot in the Fall and Winter is delicious, but this chunky smoked turkey sausage chili is so full of flavor and chunkiness, that I often eat mine with a thick, salty tortilla chip. This is another crock pot recipe sure to make any chilly Fall Day even better! 

It’s so very easy, just sauté up the veggies and lightly brown the sausage and ya dump it all in. One thing I really like about this is it is basically just a heat it all up so it doesn’t need to cook all day. In Fact, if you’re in a pinch, you could mix it all in a stock pot, heat through and be good to go. I like it to simmer just a bit in the crock so those delicious chili flavors blend together perfectly. 

What you'll need

Kielbasa Chunky Sausage Chili 
 regular size package skinless Smoked Turkey sausage, cut into coins, then halved
1 Tbsp olive oil
1 red bell pepper, chopped
1/2 onion, finely chopped
2 tablespoons chili powder
1 (14.5) oz cans fire roasted diced tomatoes, undrained
1 (14.5) oz cans petite diced tomatoes, undrained
1 cup chunky salsa (I like Pace)
1 (15-16) oz chili or pinto beans, rinsed and drained (I use Brooks Chili Beans)
Garnishes: shredded cheddar cheese, sour cream, chopped cilantro  

Cook bell pepper and onion in olive oil in a large saucepan until onions are translucent. Pour into crockpot. In same skillet add sausage and cook until slightly browned. Transfer to crock pot. Stir in chili powder, beans, tomatoes and salsa. Cook on high one hour or low for four hours. Garnish as desired.
