13 on Thursday

I'm totally piggybacking off of my friend Cyndi. I love her 13 on Thursdays and have looked forward to them since she started the series. So because imitation is the sincerest form of flattery I've decided to jump aboard. So here we go...

  1. Have you been watching Project Runway this season? Who are you pulling for? I'm a member of "Team Mondo" and I'm hoping he wins tonight. His use of patterns just makes me happy.
  2. I am totally hooked on apples this fall (and every fall really). Honeycrisp and Pink Ladies are my favorites. I bought the juiciest, yummiest Honeycrisps at Fresh Market yesterday but was shocked at the price--4 apples cost me over $9, yowza! At least they are healthy and oh so good.
  3. I haven't had one single Starbucks Pumpkin Spice Latte yet. This has got to be some sort of record for me. To make it even more shocking we had several weeks of awesome fall weather and I still didn't indulge. It has been warm (okay hot) however for a couple weeks so I'm promising myself on the first cool day I'm heading over to 'bucks to grab my favorite drink.
  4. We went shopping for my sister's wedding dress and she found the most amazing dress. And did I mention she is gorgeous!? I'm so excited for her and can't wait to share more wedding details with you guys later on. (P.S. I've always want to commission Brooklit to do a wedding dress drawing for me.)
  5. Also on the wedding front, we've narrowed down bridesmaids dresses and I'm actually loving the options. She has a few favorites from The Dessy Group (one of my new sponsors) to decide between and I'd honestly be happy with any of them. No crazy styles a la "27 Dresses."
  6. In even more wedding news my buddy Krista from The BSP got engaged yesterday and I'm so incredibly happy for her. Drop by and leave her some love here. She is such an incredible writer, I tear up on her blog regularly--just warning you!
  7. I tried carving a pumpkin for the first time in a looooong time on Sunday. It was an epic failure. Having taken sculpture classes in college I thought I'd be above beginner level--wrong. The Martha Stewart template I downloaded was a total bust. On the bright side, I used this recipe (which I edited a lot) to make some yummy roasted pumpkins seeds albeit a bit pricey pumpkin seeds.
  8. I was thinking of offering Christmas cards featuring these photos. Yay or nay?
  9. I love the fall but for some reason this year I am eager for Christmastime to arrive. It is my favorite time of year and for some reason I'm even more excited for it to arrive.
  10. Looking forward to sharing really fun Halloween treat for my sweetie. I'll share pics tomorrow.
  11. I think I picked out a color to paint our hallway (which would be another item off the list). Do you think gray is too dark for a hallway? I plan to line the wall with old, black and white family photos.
  12. Are you dressing up for Halloween? I got a funky little hat that is kind of witchlike (similar to this)l. I also bought some funny gloves and orange + black striped tights that I think I'll pair with a solid black skirt + top just to be festive. 
  13. What's your favorite Halloween candy? This year I only bought candy I didn't like for trick-or-treaters and I have not eaten one.single.piece. Quite the caloric victory! :-)
So this has been the first 13 on Thursday.
Wanna play? I'd love to read a link in the comments if you do.
