Perfect Pumpkin-Picking Patches

Okay, sorry about that ridiculous title — I do love some alliteration…! 😉

Fall means all things PUMPKIN (and of course a few other things from our fall bucket list, am i right??).  Sure, it’s cheaper to grab one from outside your favorite grocery store, but going to a pumpkin patch brings around a whole new level of nostalgia.  Here are some of our favorites that are going on in the 805!

The Cutest Little Pumpkin Ever {Underwood Farms}

A couple of weeks ago when the weather wasn’t too hot, my husband and I headed to Underwood Farms for some pumpkin picking with the baby.  If you haven’t been to Underwood Farms yet, now is a great time to go! They are having their Fall Harvest Festival full of fun events for the whole family (especially the little kiddos) running until the end of the month.

We took Reese for the first time, and to say that she was the cutest little pumpkin ever is an understatement (as every mother would say).baby at …

Five Friday Faves {This Week’s Edition}

1. TBH, I get more upset about the rising cost of avocados than I get about the rising cost of gas prices [#priorities].  Well, two of my favorite things are about to join forces: avocados and Carpinteria!  AvoFest is comin’ atcha this weekend (Oct 2-4) and, guess what… it’s FREE.  Need we say more?

2. Underwood Family Farms is kicking off their Fall Harvest Festival this weekend and it goes through Oct. 31st.  We love picking out pumpkins here every year. Plus, they have all sorts of fun for kids – …

In case you haven’t heard yet, or seen our many Instagram and blog posts, Jeannine’s Food Hall is now open at the Shoppes at Westlake!  Yeah, I just had breakfast there AGAIN this morning — tried out their Kahlua French Toast and a Cinnamon Spice latté (stop judging me!).   We love their full coffee bar, and everything we’ve tried has been delicious.

Anxious for Autumn {favorite fall festivities}

So yesterday’s drizzle, cloudy sky and slightly cooler temps got me all kinds of giddy inside. Why, you ask? Fall is almost here!

Autumn is definitely my favorite season of the year, and I am getting so excited that it’s close {FYI, September 21st is the official first day of autumn}.  Don’t get me wrong– the summers in the 805 are amazing, but autumn has my heart.  There’s just something about the cooler temperatures, boots and scarves, the changing colors of the leaves (I know, I know it’s nothing compared to the east coast or  up north, but still), and of course, the plethora of pumpkin …
