Fall is in full effect

September 27, 2016

Last week I added a few little fall touches to the house, but this week, we went Fall[s] to the wall[s].

I am trying to avoid Target like the damn plague, because I already cleaned out the Dollar Spot for some new Fall decor. And every time we go Logan talks me in to buying something else. Yes, totally blaming my Target problem on my kid.

The rest of my fall stuff came down from the attic today, so I went on a decorating spree and now the everything just feels so cozy. Logan was cracking me up. Everything I pulled out of the Fall box he would say “Oh look, I got these new spiders” “Oh look, this was my favorite pumpkin when I was a baby” “Oh look, a new kitty cup for me”. I think I’m gonna start putting all his toy up in the attic and every month switching them out so that he thinks they’re all new and all his favorite.

While Lucas was up in the attic, I had him bring down Logan’s baby clothes to raid them for Holly. We haven’t given away one single piece of clothing [in case Holly was a boy, or in case we have a boy…should we go for baby #3?] I was so excited to find some Halloween, Cowboy Football, and Christmas [yes, I said the C-word] onesies that Holly can totally rock out.

This weekend I started diffusing some serious Fall flavors, and am in love with them.

Also got the crockpot going with some turkey chili. There’s something about having football on and turkey chili in our bowls that just feels so right. Although, we are still blasting our AC in the afternoons because the afternoons haven’t caught up with our cool mornings. It’s just a few more days too until the Balloon Fiesta kicks off here. I’m so excited to see the sky filled with hundreds of balloons. Logan’s gonna freak out.

The only thing left to do is hit up Trader Joe’s for all the ugly beautiful pumpkins! oh, and word on the street is that Pumpkin Spice Meal Replacement Shakes and Gingerbread Bars are coming tomorrow [Sept 28].

With Logan back at school now, we’re in full lunchbox mode again. At Logan’s school we have to pack him a morning snack and a lunch, then I pick him up after lunchtime and crazy-pants is here for the remainder of the day. I try hard to make sure that I don’t pack Logan the […]

Well, little miss has turned in to miss sniffles. She’s had a horrible runny nose for the last week. It’s so sad because it’s just got her in kind of a funky mood. She’s a little more irritable than normal and is just wanting tons of loving. It’s all clear snot and she doesn’t have […]

October Challenge

September 19, 2016

Trick or treat, smell my feet, this year you don’t have to over eat! Ok, corny I know. But it’s so true. Halloween is like the kickoff season for a four month solid straight stuff our face with all the candy, turkey, christmas cookies, and 2017 ring-in drinks. What if this year, you did something […]

Poor little Holly girl is battling her first cold. I’m not sure if it’s a side affect from her 6 month shots, or if she’s catching Logan’s runny/stuffy nose. But either way, she’s got the clear runny nose and just seems super tired. The incredible thing though, is that she’s smiling the whole way through […]

This is a sponsored post by Boon. All opinions are 100% my own.  Bath time in our household can some times turn in to absolute madness. Even though it’s meant as a time to start calming down and winding down for the night, with two kids, things get hairy, fast! Lucas and I have been […]

Don’t you just love when you find a new activity in your city that you never knew was there? Maybe now having kids, we’re looking for different things to do, or just paying attention to activities we never would have thought about before. But, either way, this year we were introduced to raspberry picking! This […]

I’m giving a big huge waive goodbye to summer and ready to embrace fall with open [sweater] arms. Each year that summer passes I think I’m starting to like summer less and less. It’s just too damn hot. And now lugging two kids around with all the crap they need for the day, making sure […]

You can read all about Holly’s first experience with food in the previous post and how we’re loving Baby Led Weaning. Things are going really well with solids, and Holly is just munching away. I think she feels […]
