A Day at Mortimer Farms


On our recent trip up north we stopped at the coolest pumpkin patch farm! Mortimer Family Farms is in Dewey, AZ (between Phoenix and Prescott) and is seriously amazing. We arrived pretty early but by 9 am, the place was hustling and bustling. Some people were parking crazy far away and walking in.

On my way in, there are baskets of locally grown flowers, big bins of pumpkins and squash, and watermelon galore! There were even a ton of spots to stop and take photos. So many people were taking full advantage of the hay bales, tractors, and picnic tables and catching the cutest moments.

I am grateful I remembered to bring my jacket because the day started off chilly! This green jacket has been my favorite lately, I got one in burgundy too! This bag holds SO MUCH! Once it warmed up, I was able to stow my jacket away with no problem. It’s so durable and easy to keep clean; I had no problems toting it around the farm all day. I am in love with Longchamp – I just ordered this backpack too (don’t judge)!

Side Note: Have you guys noticed how much Target is stepping it up in the clothing & jewelry department?! The Sugarfix by Baublebar addition is amazing, and the clothing department in my local store has doubled! They have a ton of trendy jewelry packs and more timeless pieces for us more basic girls. So basically, they have added more reasons for me to make a Target run for paper towels where I end up blowing my whole paycheck.

Weekend Reading

I am a sucker for the holidays, and since I belong in a city with high rises and snow, I am living vicariously through these holiday window photos from the best stores in NYC. For more history / details check this link.

The next time you feel bad for taking a million selfies- don’t. Apparently the best of the best (VS Angels) need to take just as many to get the right shot.

Snuggle in and get your favorite mug ready for hot cocoa and Freeform’s 25 Days of Christmas lineup. They will be featuring the classics we know and love, but also a couple of their (previously ABC Family) original movies, like Holiday in Handcuffs, and 12 Dates of Christmas (hello Mark-Paul Vosselaar).

And lastly, in case you are already in fear of missing Pretty Little Liars come the series ending, a new CW show is coming, as well as a more grown up version on HBO, and both look like serious contenders to replace your favorite guilty pleasure. Will you be watching?



Five Faves: Halloween Movie Edition

Every fall, there are a few things I must do. One is eat all of the pumpkin flavored anything I can get my hands on. Two is watch Halloween movies. Admittedly, I am a wimp. Scary movies freak me out, like cover my eyes the entire time and curl into a ball under the covers to even be able to halfway watch. So I chose movies that aren’t scary.
