How to Update Grocery Store Mum Basket + Fall Porch

Happy October!  I think I say this every month but what in the heck happened to September?! Fall is officially here which is good because my porch has been fully decorated for weeks...  I figured if I bought all my pumpkins at once Tall Tan Man would think I'm crazy.  Some women hide shopping bags... I try to hide pumpkins!  I bought 2 pumpkins a week and I am waiting for him to say "where did all these pumpkins come from?"  And then I can say "oh they have been here for weeks, you didn't notice?".  #imterrible

Caramel Apple Cupcakes


Oh these cupcakes come with a funny story!  They smell SO GOOD that a squirrel will claw through your kitchen window screen to get one.  Yep!  I found a SQUIRREL sitting on the kitchen ledge INSIDE my house eating a cupcake.  I screamed like a 13 year old girl in a haunted house and THANKFULLY the squirrel exited through the hole it created.  Have you ever heard of that happening?!?  I know squirrels go through trash & get into attics, but chewing through a window screen to get into your kitchen!?! #thecupcakessmelledgooooood

Leap of Faith - Refinishing Furniture


 I have been thinking about refinishing furniture for profit for some time now and I am FINALLY doing it!!!  Do you ever have ideas you think are silly or you're too embarrassed to try something new?  Welp, that's me.  I think it was one my worst characteristics.  I want to have more confidence to chase dreams and be willing to fail...

Easy Fall Decor

Hello!!! I am so sorry I have been MIA!  If you follow me on Instagram then you already know I have had a long 2 weeks...  I was stuck in an airport for 2 days #mechanicalissues and came home to a nice head-cold that I am still dealing with.  But don't you worry! I am almost better and my house now feels like fall.

Banana Zucchini Crumb Cake



Is there a better combo for breakfast than crumb cake and coffee??  Eggs and bacon is definitley a close second.  Oh and cinnamon rolls...   Can we all agree that breakfast is amazing?  I have a hard time understanding people when they say they don't eat breakfast.  I would be SO grumpy and probably pass out...

DIY Growth Chart

 
I had planned on making this growth chart for Mack's first birthday buuuuuut I got it finished on his 19 month birthday!  Now if I could just get back to finishing his baby book... There are so many cute growth charts on Etsy but I decided it would be more special if I made it myself.  This project was not the easiest DIY but after you get the hang of things it gets easier {I promise!}.

Flying Solo with a Baby/Toddler

Oh how I miss reading magazines and sipping iced coffee while flying.  Those days seem like forever ago.  This will sound terrible but don't you think you should be able to check your baby?  Maybe Southwest could provide childcare below deck with the luggage? I think this could deescalate all the tension on flights... All in favor say, yes! YES YES YES!  While we wait for Southwest to implement that let's chat about things I've learned while flying with a baby.  I'm a little embarrassed to say this but Mack and I have flown 9 times.  You might think I'm a pro but last flight Mack almost broke someones laptop by catapulting a play radio over my head.  From that I've learned to not bring toys that are easily thrown.  #boymom

Backyard: Before and After

Oh my goodness y'all, I just spent almost the entire weekend by myself.  It was pure magic.  I am such a homebody and love being alone which doesn't happen much these days!  I mean, I can't even use the restroom by myself.  I first posted about our backyard in MAY of 2015... So an update is waaaay overdue.  The first day we worked in our backyard was the day I found out I was pregnant with Mack.  It was such a long day because I had to hold in the news until about 10 PM!!!   Here are some good before and afters, and scattered thoughts {that's what happens when you have to recap 2+ years of work}!


DIY Farmhouse Fall Wreath


I know, I know... It is still AUGUST but I can't help it!  I love FALL and couldn't wait any longer to start decorating our front porch.  #ineedmoredicipline I already picked up this welcome mat from Kirkland's and it is selling out like hot cakes.

Kitchen Remodel - Two Years Later!


I am currently sitting here in a puppy chow coma... I can't move... I need water... and probably a treadmill.  It is hard to believe our kitchen remodel was finished almost 2 years ago!  I wanted to fill you in on how things are holding up because we DIYed most of it.  Remodeling a kitchen is no joke and I can see why most people hire the job out.  Every time we contemplated a project I would read every blog/article I could find.  It drove Tall Tan Man crazy that I couldn't make any rash fast decisions.   I absolutely LOVE our kitchen and it had set the bar high for future houses.  We only budgeted and spent about $5000 on our kitchen remodel. Pretty awesome, right?!
