Pamela Lutrell and Goodwill San Antonio on over 50 Feeling 40

That is what we do here...CELEBRATE autumn (while spending more time at home) by thrifting fall clothing selections, making fun fall recipes, and taking time for inspiration around us. 

This is the only season that has two names…fall and autumn.  Autumn is considered the more formal name and my favorite.  But, it seems more in online marketing prefer fall.

I think it to be interesting that only one season is like that!

TODAY’S OUTFIT

Pamela Lutrell in Goodwill San Antonio find

SILVER LINING:  More time to thrift shop and I have loved every single treasure hunt this year!

On a few more posts, I want to show ways to “pump up” our denim and this green & brown silk jacket does that for me.  I discovered it recently during a treasure hunt at Goodwill San Antonio.

The jacket was $4 and I did have it cleaned. I really like it and love adding a fun brooch to the look.  Underneath I am wearing a brown tank top.

Lately, the weather has been such a downer…very warm.  I wish it was more seasonal…but for South Texas this is a fun look and I feel very chic wearing it.  The sleeves could also be cuffed up to reveal the brown.

I think there are so many who are cleaning closets that when I went to Goodwill San Antonio last week, I came home with some great fashion finds!! Will be sharing more later.

In a large bowl, whisk together all of the filling ingredients and pour into your prepared pan.

Then, in a medium bowl combine gingersnaps, oats, brown sugar, soda and powder. Then use a fork to incorporate the butter into the dry mixture.

FALL INSPIRATION

November in San Antonio from Pamela Lutrell

You can see here that fall is just beginning to show in San Antonio, but soon the trees in my neighborhood will be glorious.  I am inspired and smile every time I open the front door.

Fall in San Antonio. on over 50 Feeling 40

On this morning, I called Mr. B to the front porch to stop and take the time and appreciate the changes of seasons…even in a warm climate.  He stayed on the porch for the longest time just taking it all in.

Sometimes we only have to stop and appreciate what is around us to receive joy for the day.

There are so many days I am thankful to be home.

Now, before you leave today…tell us, do you prefer autumn or fall?
