It's Here + A Giveaway

College football has officially started. And now, it is my favorite time of year.
So I made some Auburn-inspired bathroom art for the boys yesterday.
Much more navy in person!
 And hung an orange wreath on the door.
 Put out some coffee table flare.
 Made my chili and drank red wine from an Auburn glass (y'all, it is fall year-around in Monterey, we actually get the choice to embrace it while everyone else is wishing for it! I also wore jeans and boots today and was totally okay with it.)
And lastly, created the perfect game day outfit for Friday Fancies. Even Clay Travis agrees: a sundress and boots are perfect.

So in honor of my favorite season, I'd like to offer a mystery box giveaway (inspired by my dear friend Martha). All you have to do is be a public follower of Daffodils and leave a comment telling me what is your favorite part of fall. Then, next Friday, I'll announce a winner and send you a box of goodies, which will most likely involve nail polish, a Starbuck's gift card, and orange and blue earrings (because, you know, my life goal is to make everyone an Auburn fan).

Good Luck, Happy Weekend, and WAR EAGLE!

Ooo, you know I'd love a pair of orange and blue earrings! And some Starbucks (one of my favorite things about Fall is drinking hot apple caramel cider ;)

My favorite thing about Fall though HAS to be the leaves changing color...though, let's be honest, AUBURN FOOTBALL is neck and neck for the #1 spot! ;)

I love the fall season! It's definitely one of my fave's! Since I grew up in Florida, I never got to experience the Fall season until 2007! So it's still so new to me! Fires, S'mores, blankets, cozy sweaters, fall foliage, hiking trips to name the least! xoxo

I love football season, too. That's probably my fav thing about fall, but sweaters, pretty leaves, and warm drinks are close seconds. ;)

Swede Dreams said...

A dress and cowboy boots is always perfect if you ask me! My favorite time of fall is that first morning usually in October when I walk outside and feel the crisp cool change in the weather....a welcome change from the extreme summer heat in Florida! I'm your newest follower~hope you will stop over for a visit! Angie @ swede-dreams.com

Ashley {hudson's happenings} said...

Hi Kate! New reader here! Aaaaaaaaaaaand an Alabama fan. But I hope you won't hold that against me? ;) Perhaps we can just agree that the great state of Alabama has the best football teams in all of the land. ;)

I'd love to enter the giveaway...simply because it sounds great, and I'm not such a big UA fan that I won't wear a cute pear of orange and blue earrings. Ha!

Hope you had a very happy Labor Day weekend! Can't wait to read more on your cute blog. xx

So many great things about fall but if I have to narrow it down to just a few, I'd say my favorites are family fire pit nights, snuggly sweaters and Thanksgiving!
