Touches of Autumn

If you've hung around with me for a while - and thank you if you have - you might remember that fall is my absolute favorite season.  The weather is a tough thing to deal with in Minnesota, but one thing that the state usually does really well is fall.  Crisp weather, beautiful changing leaves, and lots of yummies like apple cider.  

And going for walks is made even more awesome by all the pretty thing to see:

Also, Halloween!  Check out this Halloween pasta I found:

Do you know how hard it is to find black pasta that isn't colored with squid ink?  Hard!  I was so excited when I found this at Cost Plus.  

What are some of your favorite things about autumn?

Sorry I haven't written in a while!  School is what it is, but I do miss the connection I have with you guys - your comments are a lot of fun for me to read - so I need to make more of an effort to blog.  

In "Kala finally embraces fancy phone news" - I finally got a smart phone!  As my friends like to tease me, my old phone was as dumb as it gets.  And since I have a class that actually requires us to use mobile devices, I thought I'd better get with the program.  So far, what I like best is being able to look stuff up on the go (hours, schedules, etc.).  I'm also enjoying using Instagram quite a bit (I'm Kalahotak over there) - the little sips of communication are nice for taking breaks from school work.  Plus, cat pictures!  

But gulps are important too, so I've been making it a point to spend time with friends.  I've also made a point of visiting the farmers market almost every weekend, yay!  It's possible that I have a problem with buying more produce than I can handle:

Possibly.  But jalapeƱos are so good!

So what have you guys been up to this month?
