Sometimes J and I just take a random weekend and skip town. It's so good for our mental health; we really need to do it more often. This past weekend we headed 2 hours north to Houghton Lake, Michigan. The fall colors were gorgeous, and although it was freezing, we had a great time.

Gratitude: October

We finally closed on our mortgage this week. Beer was in order.

Beautiful fall colors. The dogs are loving it too.

Spontaneous date nights.

The desire to craft again. I made this lovely little fall banner. It'simple, but perfect.

What are you thankful for lately?

This outfit is such a fall classic. Stripes and a scarf with easy jeans. My favorite.

Mid-October is peak color time in mid-Michigan, so we've been really enjoying the beauty of fall this week. My camera and I are happy, and so are my boots. How are the colors where you are?

Lazy Days

You guys, I've been so lazy this week. Do you ever get in that mode where the less you do, the less you feel like doing? Yep, totally this week. I'm still jobless, and have very little to do beyond housework. I've found the key to times like this is just to get dressed and leave the house, if only for a little while. Today I went to the post office and city hall to pay a bill. Neither of those things needed to be done until next week, but hey...I needed to get out.

How do you beat laziness?

Sponsored: American Eagle Jeans

I'm excited to partner with American Eagle today and tell you about their fantastic new denim shopping experience. Thank you for supporting the brands that support this blog.

I love jeans. As a nanny, I live in denim at least 5 days a week. You just can't beat the ease and class of a well fitting pair of jeans.

While American Eagle jeans aren't usually my go-to, my husband loves them. LOVES them. He's a skinny guy, and AE carries a lot of smaller sizes with a slim fit, so they're definitely his go-to. And since we buy them so often anyway, I figured their women's jeans might be worth checking out.

They have just a few options...

Yeah. That's 910 different styles of jeans. Pretty much guaranteed to find something you like here.

American Eagle has also completely revamped their website so it's even easier to find the jeans you love. It's loaded with gorgeous pictures and videos, everything is so easy to find, and easy to use. You can view all of their jeans on one page, or click on a specific style or size.

I'm all about my skinny jeans, so I headed straight for their basic skinny. I'm also a fan of their hi-rise jeans, but I wasn't so brave as to try that out. Short torso and all...

This lovely spread takes up a whole page. I love how they have the jeans both on and off the model. Somehow I find that helpful. Their size chart is also wonderful. I love having actual measurements to choose from and not having to guess. And how great is it to be able to order short sizes? Yet another great perk of shopping online.

I ended up ordering the jeans you see above, the skinny jean in black. They're still on their way to me, but I can't wait to debut them here on the blog next week.

Have you ever bought jeans from American Eagle? What are you favorites? I'm super impressed and definitely in the market for another pair.
