Five on Friday: Fall Edition

Happy Friday! After back-to-back weekends of traveling, I am so excited to spend this weekend at home decorating the house for fall, baking some treats and spending time with Matt's parents who are coming to visit us on Saturday! It should be a great weekend!
 If you're not ready to fully embrace autumn yet, I apologize for the heavy fall theme today. I was flipping through some old blog posts and found {this post}, an oldie but a goodie, and instantly got fall fever!

So let's get down to what I've been loving this week...
 
- ONE - PSL. Is it just me, or do you never get sick of seeing PSL instagram pictures? I am so happy the beloved Pumpkin Spice Latte is back at Starbucks and I have definitely been taking advantage of this warm {or iced} treat!

  - TWO -Since Bath & Body Works is running their 5 soaps for $15 sale, I stocked up on some fall soaps for the house. Confession - I purchased the "Keep Calm & Carve On Soap" 100% because of the design - too cute to pass up.
- THREE - Last night I picked up fresh cut pasta and sauce from one of our favorite places, Pasta & Provisions, and discovered their new seasonal menu items - Pumpkin Ravioli & Butternut Squash Ravioli! Looks like we are going to be eating lots of pasta this season! 
Side note: One of the first dates that Matt and I shared was picking out pasta & sauces from here and cooking together at home. :)
 
- FOUR - Pumpkin Spice M&M's - no description needed.
- FIVE -  I've purchased all of the ingredients to make Matt's favorite fall breakfast this weekend - Apple Spice Pancakes!
You can find the Apple Spice Pancake recipe {here}
Happy Weekend!

  5. I live in Charlotte as well, and am a fan of Pasta and Provisions! I'll have to try the pumpkin or butternut squash ravioli! I used several of their delicious items to put together a pasta night Italian themed gift basket for my parents' anniversary one year, in honor of their love for Italy. They loved it. Great place!
