Nesting is good. Though I find it hard to stay on a diet and lose weight this time of year.

Every year it seems some fashion guru comes out and tells us that it is okay to wear white when it is not summer. Nobody ever listens though.

Fall and winter nesting is the BEST! Bring on the quilts, mugs of cocoa, and fleece pajamas!

Apple crisp! Yes!

You know that Clinton would tell you that you can wear your white all year around, and that it would look dressier with a dark wash jean.

I totally misread the leaf question on mine. Oh well. I love the foliage of fall. I would love to see pictures of you as a nun. How fun. I love it when adults dress up. It's the one time of year we get to be kids again and dress up. White is not normally a main part of my outfits anyway, because...well...I am messy. I always get something on my white stuff.
