bright florals + pretzel tubs

{cardigan: old navy | skirt: altered from dress | shoes: payless | belt: UO | tank top: eShakti | necklace: Mama Chickie | clutch: vintage, gift}
I don't mean to brag, but this fall break has been wonderfully wonderful.  I spent Friday in bed all day. watching movies, telling ghost stories to my dog, & digging out my best christmas pajamas.
Saturday was spent at the pumpkin patch, cutting orange beauties right from the vine and then cooking out a yum yum meal on the grill with the family!
Sunday, I got all gussied up (in the above floral duds) to eat pizza and drink beer on the Mellow Mushroom patio with my bestie!
Do all grown-ups have so much fun on their short, sparse, well-deserved breaks? I hope so!

Today, I am probably soaking up the last day of care-free pajama time!
Happy Columbus Day to you all, celebrate however you wish, my little chickens.
I will be kicking back with my roasted red pepper hummus & big fat tub of pretzels.
No, really, the tub is HUGE.

If you have fancied any of my past accessories, you may be interested in finding out that none other than my mother designed and created them! Momma Merrymaker has been making jewelry and other beautiful things my entire life.  She has steadily been building a fall collection and will premiere it at a wine/cheese/jewelry party in Memphis this week.  Many other artisans will be on display, too! For all my Memphis friends, email me for the location if you are interested in attending! Also, if you want some fab items of your own, she does custom items and is building an Etsy shop!
 Keep your chicken eyes peeled for Mama Chickie designs.
