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!

From Summer To Fall | Transitioning Your Graphic Tees

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…

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 Fall Weekend

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!

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!
