My new favorite item in my closet.

Patagonia Women’s Down Sweater

I have broken this jacket out many times already for our fall-like weather we have been having. πŸ™ (Summer was FAR too short—only TWO months!!)

I am really impressed by how warm this jacket is because it is not that thick or heavy, but I stay quite toasty in it.

Plus I scored an awesome deal on it and paid $140 instead of its $200 original price tag!

My new favorite item in the pantry.

I bought this Mom’s Best Naturals cereal at Fred Meyer last week for $1.79. That’s a steal of a deal for up here!

I got two different kinds: Honey Nut Toasty O’s and Oats & Honey Blend.

I have been thoroughly impressed with both kinds! They tasted like Honey Nut Cheerios and Honey Bunches of Oats, respectively, but better! For some reason, the past couple new cereals I have tried have tasted like cardboard (seriously!), but that was not the case with these cereals. . . . they rocked!

I especially love that the cereal was made in Northfield, MN—about 45 minutes from my hometown!

My favorite time of the day.

I love the fact that it is now actually dark when I go to bed now, and the sun is just starting to rise when I go for my run in the morning. That’s my favorite time to run!

My latest favorite snack.

I have received many compliments my Trail Mix Granola Bars, so I encourage you to try them as well! I made a whole pan of them last weekend and completely demolished them. They are quite dee-licious if I do say so myself! πŸ˜‰

One thing I’m not so sure about.

Have you jumped on the Pinterest bandwagon yet? It’s a hot one, but I haven’t quite figured out what I am doing yet.

I do enjoy looking at other people’s “pins” and “boards” though.

Don’t know what it is? Click here for Pinterest’s explanation of it.

Something I’m not lovin’.

This powdered drink mix-in. I much prefer Pure by Crystal Light!

    1. I like that jacket! I went coatless one day this week and it was a bad idea. I’m already back in sweaters and my fall coat.

      Ps your trail mix bars rocked our world!

    1. I LOVE Mom’s Best Naturals Honey Nut Toasty O’s! The price tag was what originally drew me in, but they are now a pantry staple for me.

      Jacket is adorable! And I’m jealous of your cooler temps. Still hot in the midwest…
