Pintersting Pins of the Week

Fall has unofficially arrived and I have been pinning away at my Fall Pinterest board.

Here are my favorite Fall pins I found this past week!

~ 16 Dollar Store Fall Wreaths by the Crazy Craft Lady

DIY Dollar Store Fall Wreaths – You won’t believe that these Beautiful Fall Wreaths were made from dollar store supplies!

I think my favorite on this list might be the Burlap and Lace, but there’s a few different ones on here I would like to try. Of course, I love that they’re DIY and from the dollar store!

I didn’t end up making the summer wreath I posted about last time, but it’s still on my list!

~ Slow Cooker White Chili by Clean Eating Recipes

I love white chicken chili. It's so easy to make and tastes so good and I really like this recipe for cooking it in the slow cooker. Definitely a keeper! {Gluten-Free, Dairy-Free} #cleaneatingrecipes #cleaneating #eatclean #justeatrealfood #dairyfree

I love soup and chili, especially in the fall and winter. As you can tell from the picture, this is gluten and dairy free recipe. My little guy at home is dairy intolerant so finding favorite recipes of mine in a dairy free option is always awesome.

~ Pumpkin Spice Snickerdoodles by Christie with Love From The Oven

These PUMPKIN SPICE SNICKERDOODLES are a family favorite! Delicious soft and chewy with pumpkin spice flavor. This fabulous fall cookie is delicious year round, but is fantastic for fall baking, Halloween or Thanksgiving. #pumpkinspice #pumpkin #cookies #snickerdoodles #pumpkinsnickerdoodles #recipes #baking #fall #autumn #thanksgiving #halloween

I looove soft and chewy snickerdoodle cookies and I love that these have a fall twist to them! I haven’t made this recipe before so I’m excited to try them!

~ Crockpot Apple Cider by Lexi Michelle Blog

Crock Pot Apple Cider -5 ingredients & super easy! perfect for those cold fall nights!

I went to a baby shower in winter once and the host had made apple cider in her crockpot. I’m not typically a huge apple cider fan, but it was sooo delicious! While I don’t have her exact recipe, I found this recipe that looks pretty similar! I’m excited to make it this fall.

~ This Fall Decor idea found on

Plain and simple, yet a beautiful fall touch for your home. I love it.

~ Fall Bucket List for Toddlers by Terri with Creative Family Fun

Bonus Pin! I was going to stop at 5, but I didn’t want to leave this one out.

Get ready to have some simple family fun this autumn with this Fall Bucket List for Toddlers. The activities are simple and so much fun.

I wanted more activity ideas for Gryffin this fall and I thought this was a fun list. I love the gathering and counting acorn idea and the leaf color hunt.

I was thinking of skipping a fall bucket list this year, but this made me change my mind!

**Cheers to Fall! I hope you all are having a wonderful September so far!

Much Love,


Pintersting Pins of the Week

I’ve said it before, but I love Pinterest! I love gathering inspiration and ideas from others.

I found some great pins for my summer board this week and wanted to share them!

So here we go!

~ DIY Summer Wreath by Sarah Joy

DIY Summer Wreath for Your Front Porch

This summer wreath is beautiful! Bonus – she actually shows you how to make it! Scrolling through Pinterest there are a ton of wreaths you can buy, but I was really looking for something that I could maybe do myself. Voila! This is definitely going on my list of projects.

~ This Really Good Pasta Salad by Inspired by Charm

Really Good Pasta Salad - the BEST pasta salad recipe

Everyone needs a great pasta salad, especially for all those summer barbecues! This looks delicious and I can’t wait to try it!

I have actually been following Inspired by Charm for a while now on Facebook and I just recently started following his Pinterest boards. I love his style and his food always looks so good!

~ S’mores Rice Krispies Treat Pinwheels by Trish with Mom on Timeout

Say goodbye to boring squares and hello to these fun S'mores Rice Krispies Treats Pinwheels! All the flavor of s'mores wrapped up inside a sweet rice krispies treat package!

Oh. my. goodness. These look delicious!! It just so happens that S’mores are on our Summer Bucket List and I’ve been wondering how we’re going to do it since we don’t have a fire pit and we aren’t planning on going anywhere with a campfire. I think I may have found the perfect alternative!

~ This summer decor arrangement by Lauren with Bless’er House

The top 20 IKEA items that look high-end for a low price to decorate a home that is timeless and with a modern farmhouse style. #ikeadecor #budgetdecor #budgetdecorating #cheapdecor #ikea #modernfarmhouse #classicdecor #traditionaldecor

I don’t really use pitchers very often, but they’re great for displaying flowers. I love the pop of yellow from the sunflowers. I definitely need more sunflowers in my life…and apparently a white pitcher. ;)

~ Summer Berry Sangria by Olivia’s Cuisine

Summer Berry Sangria | | A delicious summer sangria made with Moscato, strawberries, raspberries, blackberries and blueberries! #MiddleSister #DropsofWisdom #Sp

I’ve had Sangria before (and it’s so good!), but I’ve never actually made it. I decided that I’m going to change that after finding this. With all those delicious berries, it makes for a perfect summer drink.

So there you have it! Leave a comment below and let me know what’s on your summer list!

I hope you all have a wonderful weekend!

Much Love,


Currently – September Edition

Happy September!!  I can’t believe this summer is practically gone!  I’m usually a little sad when I turn the Calendar and say goodbye to August, but this year, I seem to be ok with it.

Since I took yet another 2 month break (I know, I know, I honestly thought I would be doing better at this), I decided to break my silence with another Currently Edition.  So here we go!

Currently Watching:

“When Calls the Heart”.  Thank you Netflix!  And thank you Hallmark for making such a happy, only slightly cheesy, tv show.  There is only 1 season, so that’s a little sad, but hopefully there will be more.  If you liked Downton Abbey, I have a feeling you would like this.  Go check it out!

Also, Rizzoli & Isles is still going, so that keeps me happy on Tuesday nights.

Currently Reading:

Harry Potter Book 3…actually 4.  I literally have just a couple pages left and I’m done with 3.  I realized I left book 4 in my drawer at work as soon as I got home.  Gah!  Good thing I can grab it tomorrow.  Love the books!  Obviously they are better than the movies, but I still can’t get over how well done the movies are.

Currently Making/Baking:

Tomato Basil Pasta.  Look it up on Pinterest (I might also try and post it on here sometime)!  Super Easy, it’s one of those one-pot meals and takes about 20 minutes to make, probably less.  It doesn’t call for it, but I add Italian Sausage to give it a little protein (in which case turns it into a 2 pot meal).

Current Obsession:

In my June “Currently” post, I mentioned I was obsessed with looking at cruise vacations.  Well…we ended up booking one and I’m SUPER excited!  I have everything planned as much as I can right now, just waiting until it gets closer to our travel dates to book our flights and hotel and what not.  So yeah, that obsession is still going strong.

Anywhosies – Speaking of that Tomato Basil Pasta, I need to get cracking on that.

Hope you all have had a wonderful first day of September!
