October Inspirations

I miss my Monday Morning {P}Inspirations posts.  They were really fun for me to put together, so I decided to bring it back on a once a month basis, sharing with you what is inspiring me for the month.  October is well under way-only two weeks to Halloween! It's around this time I start to get antsy for all things warm and cozy: cabins, hot cups of coffee, comfy lounge wear, pumpkin everything!  

Gatsby Sweatshirt!!! I need this in my life. Get one here.

A cozy cabin in the woods surrounded by gorgeous birch trees.  Would love to spend a weekend away from it all at a place like this.  I long to see the trees changing colors like they do in the northeast.  Unfortunately Cali just doesn't cut it in the fall department.

A perfect quote on a perfect little coffee mug!

I am so obsessed with this bedroom.  The rustic headboard, industrial lighting, tree stump table and black and white bedding = bedroom bliss.

Definitely going to try making this pumpkin pie granola.  I love adding granola to vanilla yogurt as an evening treat before bed. 

A few bits of my month so far:

Currently Reading: The Cookbook Collector.  I'm only a few pages in and I am already hooked.  Set in the bay area ( I always love when the setting is somewhere I have actually been or is local), it tells the story of two sisters who could not be more different, navigating their way through their mid twenties.

Currently Listening To: Fitz and the Tantrums radio on Pandora

Currently Crushing: on this mani

Current To-Do list: Take our annual Half Moon Bay pumpkin patch trip
Mail Halloween cards
Find costumes for the girls!

What is going on for you this October??
