Week in Preview, September 15, 2014

Hello lovely people!

I am so happy that it’s starting to feel like fall!! Having the windows open during the morning (at least), pumpkin spice lattes, sweaters coming out of storage, this is my favorite time of year.

Want some fall themed fun? Don’t forget about apple picking, pumpkin patches, and to EMAIL ME YOUR FALL FESTIVAL INFO so I can share it with everyone!

Here’s what’s on tap for this week:

Monday, September 15
From 5pm-10pm it’s Jersey Night at Chick Fil A Signal Hill! (I hear from readers that other restaurants are also participating, but I haven’t been able to confirm that with the franchisees, so I’m sticking with Signal Hill!) Wear your jersey and score a free original sandwich.
