Happy Fall Weekend

What are your plans for the weekend?  I plan on getting some projects done around the house, making a warm delicious apple crisp and seeing a long distance friend.  I absolutely cannot wait (we’re carving pumpkins!!!).  I’ve been a little obsessed with apple everything lately so you may be seeing that apple crisp show up on the blog sooner than later.  It’s share worthy, I promise.  Have a great crisp fall weekend and here’s a…

When Maps & Frames Come Together

This little super easy project has been on my list of things to make since May.  I’m finally getting around to it.  Let me tell you how embarrassing that is.  For quite some time though, I couldn’t really find any maps.  I mean really?  When I was younger there would be a fold up state map everywhere we went, including the local diner we hit up weekly.  In August, God said “let there be maps”…

Mulled Cider

I have always been a huge apple cider lover from little on.  But I always drink my apple cider warm.  If I wanted it cold, I would reach for apple juice!  So when a friend from my old job brought this mulled cider into work last fall, I knew that I was going to be asking for the recipe before I even tried it and I was right!  I made this for a party we…

Do You Meal Plan?

Lately I have been wanting to get into a routine.  Be more organized; put my life together kind of thing.  There have been countless nights where I get home from work, peek in the fridge and almost immediately start stressing out about what we should have for dinner that night.  I have been meaning to start this for a while and I am finally going to do it (after a few too many weeks of…

Iced Pumpkin Cookies

Everything has been smelling like fall lately.  Just the way October should smell.  I decided tonight would be the night I made my house smell like fall too.  These cookies did just the trick.  Now I’m usually more of an apples person when it comes to baking in the fall but these little bites of heaven tasted like a miniature cake they were so soft!  The icing I had made a little too thin so…

Happy Weekend

What are your plans for this weekend? We’re having friends over for a cookout and bonfire on Saturday and I’m hoping to try out this this slow cooker apple crisp. In other news, we have our 20 week appointment on Tuesday!  I’m so excited but nervous!  It seems like everyone else who’s having babies have a gut feeling about their gender and I haven’t got the slightest idea!  That can’t be true, right?  I’ll keep you updated on the giant debate…

Two Peas in a Pod (But Not …

I mentioned on here before that one of my very closest friends is having twins!!  It’s her first pregnancy and those little boys have been treating her very good so far.  She’s due before the year is over and this past Sunday we spent celebrating her and her little gentlemen!  It was one of the sweetest showers I’ve ever been to!  Not only was this beautiful mama-to-be surrounded with family and friends who love her…
