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.
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!
Fall is in the Air… and it smells amazing. I can’t get enough of the incredible scents of the season so I wanted to share 10 of my favorite candles that every home must have! Fill your home with the beautiful notes of buttercream, pumpkin spice, coffee beans, spiked cider, cedar wood and a tinge of cinnamon! There is nothing more pleasant than entering a home with dazzling candles flickering and being welcomed with sensational smells… its all about the ambiance!

Happy Pumpkin Spice Season!!! I long for this time of year practically all year long! I always get so excited to see what items come out in pumpkin flavor each year, and this year did not disappoint. Cheerios did a great job and I have already fallen in love with their Limited Edition – Pumpkin Spice Cheerios. I literally want to eat them for every meal, and keep trying to find ways to do so. That is why I created this recipe, in hopes that it will satisfy my pumpkin spice sweet tooth! With the help of 2 other ingredients you have a fabulous ooey-gooey pumpkin spice treat bar that can be enjoyed any time of the day. YES!!!!
It is simple to make and will be loved by all, so what are you waiting for…??? ENJOY!

I hope you all have had a beautiful Thanksgiving celebration surrounded by the people you love. We all have so much to be thankful for!
THANK YOU to each and every one of you for all of your support, loyalty, kind comments and encouragement. I love blogging and I couldn’t do it without all of you!
LET US COME TO HIM WITH THANKSGIVING. LET US SING PSALMS OF PRAISE TO HIM. PSALM 95:2
We are all TURKEY’D out over here.
I can’t believe Thanksgiving is just a few days away, how exciting! This year is a very special year because I finally have a little one sitting at the official “kiddie table”. Since it is Paisley’s first real Thanksgiving experience I wanted to make it extra special, and I found the perfect item to help me do that.
It is always important to make sure our teachers know how thankful we are for them and all that they do to invest in our children. With Thanksgiving one week away, I wanted to share my quick, inexpensive and adorable THANK YOU gift I created for Paisley’s preschool teacher. A thank you gift does not have to be expensive or complex, it is the thought that counts and your little gesture will go a long way.
Enjoying the holiday season with our children makes this time of year extra special, and so-far this fall has been jam-packed with fun activities.
Here is a little recap of some of our favorite fall festivities.
When my husband and I got married, we made it a tradition every October to have a pumpkin carving contest. Knowing us, the contest quickly became competitive, but of course I always lost to him because he uses a scalpel blade at work every day – so not fair, his pumpkins were amazing! So last year, I decided to use the girls as an excuse to change the pumpkin carving into pumpkin painting; much safer and much more ME. : )
