A perfect fall day with Jennifer of Belclaire House!

Good Tuesday morning to you! Here today for another installment of " A perfect fall day" with one of my favorite bloggers, one who infuses a fun playful sense of humor with a healthy dose of self deprecation that is so endearing, and her fair share of fabulous taste! She keeps me going back for more. Besides how can I not feel a bond with her since we both share an insane love for all things blue and white:)

Stylish Jennifer just moved into her dream home (big congrats on that) and is settling in as we speak...my heart goes out to her, I know full well how utterly exhausting it is to move but Jennifer I assure you it is  worth every sore muscle, every aching muscle, every hour of stress and super sore feet every package of cookies and bags of chips eaten out of stress! I was so happy to get her take on a perfect fall day, one that she is probably wishing she could take right about now:) This day spoke to me on many counts.....we could be great fall friends! If you are not a visitor already of Belclaire House, please stop over to visit, I assure you that you will most definitely make it a regular habit. Enough of me, lets join Jennifer on her perfect fall day.......


One word that comes to mind when I think of fall……Football! (I'm a huge Missouri Tigers fan)

One of the most wonderful things about fall is.......the crisp air, something about it energizes me 
(okay fine, the fall TV lineup is pretty wonderful, too) 

My favorite fall color is………
hmmmm,  even though fall is my favorite season, I'm not a huge fan of traditional fall colors in my home (like reds, oranges, burgundies and browns, although I love them on the trees outside).  I guess it's more about texture and layers for me in the fall - more blankets and pillows and heavier fabrics as I prepare for winter (but still in my blue and white color scheme).  This fall I predict I use a lot of navy, dark green and blush colors.

On a perfect fall day, I would wake up at ………10 a.m.  (okay that's never going to happen) ... 9ish?

To the sound of…………bacon sizzling and my husband, Kip, telling our two-year-old, Edward, to please hush because "it's very important not to wake up Mommy because she works so hard all week to entertain you and prepare three perfect meals each day all while looking beautiful and skinny."

The view from my window looks something like this………We usually cannot keep up with the pace of the falling leaves much to my son Edward's delight.

The ideal fall weather could be described this way.........Sunny and not too cold.  Light sweater weather, if you will. 

My ideal morning activity would be………I'd always rather be sleeping, but if that's not an option than taking a walk around the neighborhood.

At least that's what I look like in my head when I have on leggings and a sweater with my hair in a ponytail.  I'm sure I've never looked that chic.

A favorite product (beauty or otherwise) I like to use as the weather gets nippier…………My slow cooker! At least twice a week! 

For a fall breakfast I would indulge in………Extra coffee.  I never eat breakfast.  I know, it's bad

My favorite daytime activity in the fall is…………playing outside with my 2 year-old, going to a pumpkin patch or baking some yummy pumpkin treat 

Here's whats on my plate for lunch.......Probably Crock-pot leftovers from the night before or my Grandma's Casserole, which is basically goulash.  I love to make a big casserole for lunch and then eat it for the next three days

Around 3pm you might find me…………………Getting out of the house for a walk because Edward and the dog are driving me crazy.  They love it and I find it soothing.  It's sort of the last thing I do before I'm ready to pass the baton to my husband when he gets home.  Here's a photo from my favorite stretch of my walk

An afternoon "pick me up" snack might just be........Cracker Barrel White Cheddar Cheese and Triscuits, or, let's be honest, another cup of coffee.

For dinner you might find this cooking on the stove...............Spaghetti, my ultimate comfort food. 

The perfect way to end a perfect fall day would be………………A glass of red wine, my new favorite is Patz & Hall 2010 Jenkins Ranch, and a good TV show to watch while I snuggle on the couch with my husband. We love a good TV show, quality programming like The Bachelor.  

Awesome Jennifer! Anyone who considers red wine, spaghetti and  the guilty pleasure of reality TV part of their perfect day is an instant friend of mine:)  Love it, thanks for injecting your fun spirit and light hearted humor....makes you  so real and like so much fun, my kind of girl!  And how cute is little Edward, cutest pumpkin in the patch! Thanks for letting us all tag along on your perfect fall day and I am going to have to try Patz and Hall in your honor of course!
