Easy Fall Centerpiece

Easy Thanksgiving Centerpiece

It can be so much fun to put together a dinner party or host family and friends for a major holiday. I'm so excited that Thanksgiving is so close and I love to add a little ambience to the table just to make it festive. But I don't like to spend a lot of time or money on centerpieces. I like to use what I have and make it work. I threw together a very easy, cute centerpiece and I was able to just use things that I had! It's fun to just look around your house for vases and jars and platters and see what you can use that you already own to pull together a really fun and festive … [Continue reading...]

Now Thanksgiving is one of the busiest travel weekends of the year. There are football games and magnificent parades. Schedules and commitments. Invitations and parties.

Cold Weather Jammies

cold weather jammies

So I might have just had a little shopping spree. The only thing was it was a pretty expensive one and it was for kids' jammies :) It's quickly starting to get colder here and we are adjusting our thermostat. With that comes Knox & Sloane's bedroom. We want it to be as comfortable as possible for them. It's kind of a tricky time of year because it can be quite warm in the day and pretty cool at night. Several mornings we've gone in and they say they're cold. That's even after I've woken … [Continue reading...]

Cream Cheese Filled Pumpkin Muffins

Cream Cheese Pumpkin Muffins

Is anyone else ready for everything that Fall brings? I'm talking pumpkin, boots, and cooler temperatures. I'm ready to see the temperatures take a dive and get out of the upper 80's and 90's, the first sign of cooler weather and I'm pulling out the boots and scarves, you can bank on that fact.
