This Winter BUNDLE UP In Style | Featuring The Children’s Place

I love jackets, scarfs, hats, gloves and just about anything winter clothes related. So when it comes to picking out adorable winter looks for my girls, I have way too much fun!  Contrary to popular belief, Phoenix can still get chilly in the winter. Subzero? No.  Teens to 30’s? You betchya.  For this reason, I need to get my girls ready for the change in season.  For my little ones, I love bundling them up in the marshmallow-like puffer jackets with a coordinating hat. There is nothing cuter in my mind than a BUNDLED marshmallow running around!

Fall In Prescott

When you live in the valley of the sun, escaping to the mountains is always a welcomed retreat. We were able to spend the weekend in Prescott, Arizona to get some much needed time in the great outdoors.  Cooler weather and pine trees did not disappoint!

Adventures at the Pumpkin Patch

Today we were blessed with a fun morning at the pumpkin patch, but in true Arizona glory it was a scorcher! 97 degrees makes it hard to feel “fall-like” at a farm, but we did our best to ignore the sunny heat and just enjoy the fall festivities.  Surrounded by mom friends and lots of little ones running around, we still managed to have a great time!

Mother Nature’s Farm in Gilbert, Arizona provided a fun morning of pumpkin picking, pumpkin decorating, hay rides, goat feeding, corn mazes and bounce houses. With all the excitement, the kids didn’t even realize how hot it was, they had a blast!  I always love fall activities and the opportunity to experience new adventures with my girls.


Here are a few pumpkin-loving photos of our pumpkin patch adventures!

Fall Butterscotch Oatmeal Cookies - Recipe

Fall Butterscotch Oatmeal Cookies

When you make this recipe, be ready for your home to be filled with the true smells of fall; sugar and spice and everything nice.  It is beyond fabulous!

Now that the sweet fall chill is in the air, it’s time for some cookie baking!  I love this oatmeal cookie recipe because of my super sweet ingredient surprise; butterscotch.  Now, I recognize that “Butterscotch” doesn’t exactly make most people begin salivating, but the right amount in the right recipe can be magical!  It is the perfect surprise ingredient.  If you are simply not a butterscotch person, then feel free to get creative with your add-in items and switch it up with chocolate chips, peanut butter chips, nuts, raisins, or even cinnamon chips.  Since it is fall, I also sprinkled in a little splash of fall colors with edible confetti leaves.  This cookie is an easy bake, full of fall love and will be enjoyed by everyone.  My kids and husband approve!

Autumn Attire: From Summer To Fall – Transitioning Your Graphic Tees

I am always looking for a way to successfully transition my seasonal looks into my already steady wardrobe.  I love to find ways to mix and match my previously owned clothing with new trendy pieces.  One item that I love mixing around with each season are my graphic tees.  I have a couple staple tees that I adore and with a few minor tweaks and accessories, I can transition my summer look into a fall look, all while still wearing my graphic tees on the regular.


Here are a few of my favorite graphic tee looks mixed in with my fall favorites…
