What I'm Loving...

Happy Friday! How was everyone's week? This one was a little... weird. Oh well. You can't win them all.
Here's what I'm loving:


Starbucks Pumpkin Spice Latte
Oh, I agree Starbucks. I agree. September 1 brought out the fall drinks at Starbucks and I was one happy camper. I will be in the drive thru line at 'bucks pretty much daily from now until the end of the year. Holiday drinks are MY FAVORITE. I can't promise this will be the last appearance of a Starbucks drink on What I'm Loving... in the next few months.


Winning!
Isabel at Walk of Fashion had a giveaway and I won! How awesome is that? Giveaways are so much fun. I'm a lucky girl, because this isn't the first giveaway I've won. I won some lovely Bobbi Brown goodies from Chasing Beauty, a CSN gift card from Gorgeous Glam and a Junghwa by Amy Stewart bracelet in a BonBon Rose Girls giveaway, too. Considering the number of things I've entered this probably isn't that impressive statistically but that's not the point. I love the blogging community and all the fabulous and generous people I feel lucky enough to have become friends with. 
So - that's the point :)


Football Season
Saturday is the season opener for my Alabama Crimson Tide. If you were reading last fall or if you've just, you know, ever met me you know me and everyone I associate with are huge Bama fans. It's one of the many reasons this is my favorite time of year. I know some of my fellow Bama fans are reading - show a little Roll Tide love in the comments :)


Bath and Body Works Halloween Hand Sanitizers
I keep seeing these all over the blogs, most recently over on Fashion Meets Food and they are just way too cute. If it's not clear from this What I'm Loving..., this is my favorite time of year. Love the weather, love the colors, love the fashion, the shopping, the smells - so much goodness to go around. 


It's been a little rough lately, so thanks to everyone for all the comments, Tweets, and participating in my mini What I'm Loving... on Twitter. You all continuously brighten my days and I love you for it. I will hopefully try to elaborate soon on what's been going on. 


Ok, so that's What I'm Loving right now! What about you?

I'm loving that the weather is supposed to not hit above 92 2 days in a row this week. And the low those days is 68! Fall is coming!

Also I'm having a giveaway! Maybe you'll win mine!

I also love those Bath & Body hand sanitizers. I love that they don't leave my hands smelling like rubbing alcohol the way the standard hand sanitizers do. And I love pumpkin spiced lattes! I'm also loving that it's a 3 day weekend, Bachelor Pad, relaxing days without any specific plans, hats, and booties. Happy Friday, Katie. I hope you're feeling better. :)

I am the same with peppermint mochas. except you can buy them year-round but they only advertise them around the holidays. is that not the case with pumpkin spice lattes?
