But First, Coffee | Featuring EkoBrew

This post is sponsored by Walmart and EkoBrew.  All thoughts and opinions are 100% my own. @walmart #ekobrew

If you are anything like me, a good cup of brew is NEEDED to start your day off right.  Now that fall has arrived, I have been enjoying the cooler weather, which also means I finally get to transition my morning cup of iced coffee to a nice steamy HOT cup of coffee.  There is truly nothing better than waking up to the amazing smell of a fresh brewed cup of coffee in your home; But First, Coffee.

Running behind is my normal morning phenomanon.  Funny how having kids does this – I used to be organized and on time!  Thankfully my morning brew is done in my convenient single serving Keurig machine, so it is reliable and fast.  I need a speedy constant in my life and Keurig is just that… there is however a slight problem, I dislike buying the expensive and non ecofriendly K-cups, and I can never seem to find a flavor that I enjoy.  I like to buy fun flavored bags of coffee, especially during the holidays, and I am always bummed that to enjoy them I have to bring out the bulky coffee pot.  Thankfully I have found a solution to this problem: Ekobrew.

Fall on the Farm | Celebrating the 1st Weekend of Fall

We decided to kick off the first weekend of fall on the right note… with a girls day at the farm.  We joined friends and spent the morning exploring the farm.  Now that the girls are 4 and 1 years old, this fall is going to be an active one filled with all kinds of fun.  There are so many aspects of fall that I can not get enough of, and they all start with the word pumpkin.  Well maybe not all of them, but most of them; picking out pumpkins at a pumpkin patch, painting pumpkins, drinking pumpkin spice latte’s, sweater weather, football, fall candles, plaid blanket scarfs… I could go on and on.  There is something so sweet about fall and all of the festivities… just thinking about it makes me feel all cozy inside.

…Anyways, sorry about my tangent on my love for fall, back to the farm!  We were able to show the kids pretty much every farm animal you can imagine and the best part was riding a train all around the farm and through the pumpkin fields.  It was a great day and the perfect kick-off to all of the exciting memories and times coming in October.

Here are a few photos from our day on the farm!

If you live in Arizona or plan on visiting, add Schnepf Farms to your must-visit list. They have the best ‘Pumpkin and Chili Party’ every weekend through the month of October… it is legit fall fun!

Have fun this fall season.  Embrace all of the festivities and enjoy making memories with your loved ones!  I encourage you to try something new and to drink lots of pumpkin spice lattes!
