Pumpkin Spice Latte

Fall is my happy time.

It’s my favorite time of the year and I love everything about it. It’s Labor Day Weekend, the official end of summer, but for me… it’s been Fall for over a week. Continue reading

Halloween Fun!

I love Fall. My kids love Halloween.
I love projects and I love to let my kids do fun things and see the joy on their faces. There is nothing better than seeing your kids happy. And the simplest things make them happy.
Every year, I carve pumpkins and I love it. I love letting my kids get excited about the designs. I like getting my hands full of pumpkin guts and and roasting the seeds. I love how they look all lit up and on display.
I don’t love that they start to rot within 2 days and I don’t like that I end up finishing them alone because my babies get bored and my husband is just not into it.  🙂

Kids Feet Ghost Canvas Art

Fall is my favorite season, but Halloween is one of my children’s favorite holidays.

Every year we have a Halloween bash, and every year it gets a little larger. This means more decorations, more people, and more food.

I love involving my kids in the crafts. They are allowed to get messy, their creativity comes out, and it’s great family time.

Mocha Frappe (I need a Coffee House)

Ok, well as I’m certain you’ve realized by now… coffee is my addiction. My guilty pleasure. My vice if you will.

Starbucks, Community Coffee (down here in Louisiana), PJ’s, etc, they all get a nice chunk of my money this time of year. I cannot go out to run errands without stopping at one of these to grab a jolt of java.

But I also MAKE tons of coffees at home for myself and my husband. We have the fancy machines and espresso makers, The steamers, and the syrups.

Owning my own coffee shop has been my dream for a long time. Maybe one day. Continue reading

Ribbon Hair Ties, I Can Do That

We’ve all seen the cute little elastic ribbon hair ties in boutiques and stores and in practically everyone’s hair lately. Everyone is wearing them and at $2 to $4 a pop or 4 for $15, they’re cute but pricey.  Especially when you must have one in every color to match your wardrobe.  That adds up really fast.
My 4 year old daughter has friends who wear them at school and has been telling me she “NEEDS” some.
Knowing my daughter and knowing what a fashionista and a diva she is, I knew that would be very expensive, so I thought, I can do that! Continue reading
