Thanksgiving Books

Today I'm sharing some of our favorite Thanksgiving themed books in case you're like me and like to get a head start on priming things (or reserving books at your library!)  so you can enjoy them the whole month :) 

First up is  Apple Cake.  It's a new addition to our bookshelf and it's SO SWEET!

Ultimate Oreo No-Bake Dessert


I needed something relatively quick and no-bake a few weeks ago and decided to give this recipe a go.  It was a HUGE crowd pleaser and incredible simple to put together.  I've made it to go along with a meal for a friend last week and then again for our family and it's everyone's new favorite.  Next time I make it I'll take a better "finished product" pic but every time I've made it it's been devoured before I think of it!

Friday Favorites

Happy Friday, friends!!! It is GLORIOUS outside today with awesome weather this weekend which you know means it's going to be a great day :)  

  Erika and I are so excited that lots of y'all are linking up with us and if you're linking up with us make sure you grab our graphic, link back to one (or all!) of us and share your own Friday Favorites post.

First up on my list of FAVORITES is this volleyball picture of Griffin.  A mom went to practice last week and snapped pics of each of the girls and I couldn't get over how grown up G looked in hers!!!

Fall Gazebo

Happy Thursday, friends!  Today I thought I'd give you a quick peek at an area of our house that is making me EXTRA happy right now... our gazebo!  When we started our pool renovation (which I promise I'll share when it's complete - OMG) our plan was to tear it down but then the pool itself took literally 10 times longer than what we anticipated, I watched Gilmore Girls again and got sentimental about the gazebo and we moved our older furniture out here and decided to leave it for now.  Last weekend we went a little pumpkin crazy and have been enjoying lots of cooler evenings out there for games and dessert.

Never Say Never - Part I Don't Even Know Anymore :)

If you've read here for a while you know that it seems like any time I use the phrase "never" I end up eating those words pretty darn quick.  I should have known better when I said I would NEVER get my middle schooler a phone that that was pretty much a guarantee that he'd end up with one in his hand before his first quarter was over :)

Rainbow Pumpkin Planter Project

I saw a porch full of rainbow-painted pumpkins on IG the other day and fell in LOVE!  Now, rainbow pumpkins don't really fit in at my house BUT rainbow pumpkins fit right in at my classroom.  I hauled an extra concrete planter out of the backyard and picked up some pumpkins on a grocery run and we were in business!

Friday Favorites

 Happy Friday, friends!!! Today is the last day of our first nine-weeks of school and I feel SO GOOD because my report cards are already done and uploaded!  It's only taken me 15 years in the classroom to learn my lesson about assigning projects during week 9 and I am SO EXCITED to not have that hanging over my head today! :) 

  Erika and I are so excited that lots of y'all are linking up with us and if you're linking up with us make sure you grab our graphic, link back to one (or all!) of us and share your own Friday Favorites post.

Rosie Roo had to go back to the vet on Monday to have her stitches removed and this picture that Dave sent me is my FAVORITE!

Best Pumpkin Cake EVER

 Today I'm sharing one of my VERY FAVORITE cake recipes of all time.  It's so easy, so tasty and is a total crowd pleaser.  I feel like I make this 3-4 times a month in the Fall for our family, to take to a function or to pass along to a friend.

Pet Q&A Part II


Rosie for sure.  She loves to play, loves to be around them and is definitely super attached to them.  Jack can be more aloof and Jelly Bean will "allow you" to give her attention when she deems it appropriate :) hahaha  #catlife

Halloween Decor

 I'm feeling extra festive this year and maybe it's all the time at home, maybe it's the desire for as much "normalcy" as possible... but whatever it is I couldn't wait to get the Halloween boxes out this year.
