Exciting News

I still hope not everyone has completely given up on me. I needed a break from this little space. 
I didn't think it would be this big of a break but we've been pretty busy.

Also, if you follow me on Facebook you probably saw where this post was suppose to be live Monday. Well I got a bad case of the stomach flu... It was a rough. 
But I'm so excited to be back with some amazing post, new recipes and all things family and babies! 
So let's start off with the exciting news. 
If you follow me in Instagram then you probably already know but in case you don't here it is. 

Yes, that's right Miss O will be a big sister in May. We are super excited now that all the shock has wore off. 
Miss O and her sibling will be 22 months apart. At first I was pretty nervous about the short distant between the two but I'm starting to think it will be a great age difference! I hope they are bffs! 

We find out the sex in on the 29th. We can't wait! 
I'll post of pregnancy post soon too! 

(17 weeks) 

Well I hope you have a wondering Thursday.
I'll be back next week with a new cookie recipe and a peak into Miss O's December 1st box! 

P.S. I promise I'm back to blogging! :)

Friday Favorites

Hello Friday! 

I'm pretty excited its Friday. We have a football game tonight, then farmers market and shopping tomorrow then fall craft show at the park Sunday. I also need to fit in some miles sometime. I hoping to drag all my fall decorations out sometime Saturday. I'm pretty excited to decorate this year. I just love fall. 

But until I show you pictures of my decorations I'll leave you with my fall inspired Friday favorites. 

Favorite Fall Sign: Trick or Treat isn't this super cute!? I love this sign. I think its cuter than our average black and orange sign. Which is probably why I love it the most. 

Favorite Outfit. I think this would be super cute for the fall. I love the green and leopard mix. It looks super cute and comfy. 

Favorite Baked Good. Healthy and Delicious Pumpkin Bread. THIS LOOK AMAZING. I'm so ready for everything pumpkin this fall. I even have a few recipes for the blog to share. And I'm totally making this pumpkin bread. I know it will just be delish! 

Favorite Girls Outfit. I love this! Buying for a little girl really is super fun. I'm sure I'd love to buy for a boy too. I love love this outfit! Totally finding something like this for Miss O. 

Favorite Fall Porch. Halloween Decorating...The Porch This porch is sooooo cute! I'm thinking about doing something like this on our front porch that faces the road. Instead of going all out for the door way that faces the garden. Sure people see it when they come over but not when they are just driving by. I love this look so much! 

Favorite Sandwich: Slow Cooker Beef Brisket French Dip . Doesn't this look amazing! I love love love french dip. They are the prefect fall food. This recipe looks delish and super easy to make. Plus it would feed a lot of people. I can't wait to try this! 

Favorite DIY: Kitchen Island Inspired by Pottery Barn I love everything about this. I would probably already be making it with my mom is I had room for it. I think it would be super cute as a table and not just an island. I hope I can make it one day. Its super cute

Giveaway: Jamberry Wraps

Good Thursday Morning! 
Holy cow, Thursday already?! I can't believe its almost the weekend but I'm so excited for the weekend. Football Friday night, farmers market Saturday and fall craft show are the park Sunday. 
I love this time of year but I'm so sad the farmers market is almost over with. I wish it lasted longer than it does. But I have been stocking up to freeze a TON of veggies to last us through the winter hopefully. 
I'll blog about freezer tips next week! 
But until then I have an AMAZING giveaway for you! 
I had never heard of Jamberry nail wraps until a mama frirend from Instagram started posting this really really cute nail. 

She just sent me a sample pack so I could review and see how much I loved them. And guys I really love them! 
At first I thought she was just really good at painting her nails. Then she put something on Instagram about how she was now selling Jamberry. 
I took a look online and fell in love with all the prints!! 
They are SUPER easy to put on and they look amazing. Plus, they don't chip! 
I love love love them. Way cuter than painting your nails and there's no drying time! I mean com'on nothing beats that right! 

I mean look at how cute this holiday wraps are! I can't wait to get all festive with my nails. 
I knew you'd be just as excited as I am! They have a million different prints and tons of solids too. 
Did I mention they come with 18 nail wraps. Enough for a 2 manis and 2 pedi PLUS accent nails on one sheet! 

Guys, she's giving away a nail wrap of choice! I know I wish I could enter the contest!

September Goals

Good Morning!! 

Happy Tuesday! I'm so glad yesterday was a holiday. We caught up on laundry, did some meal prep and went to visit Chris' grandpa. His birthday was Sunday so we went to say hello and happy birthday. It was a great day off. We even got to bbq some wings! Recipe coming soon! 

So since its already September (I know I can't believe it either) I thought I would do my monthly goals again. 
I really can not believe its September. Its my favorite time of the year. Football games, cooler weather, racing, fall colors, pumpkin EVERYTHING and the start to all my favorite holidays! 
Although I'm sad to see summer end I'm super excited for all the holidays to come. It's going to be so fun this year with Miss O. 

Speaking of goals here's how I did with my August goals.
I did run/walk 60 miles which I think it pretty good. I was only 10 shy of my goal which is probably the closest I've been in a long time. 
I did meal plan almost every week. There was one week I planned for only a few days and quickly remember how awful it is not to have a plan. 
September meal planning is going to be amazing since I just started my 21 Day Fix

I didn't lose 8 pounds but I'm ok with that. I lost a few inches and right now as much as I hate not seeing the scale move I'm not letting it stress me out. 

Here's what I have planned for the next 30 days!
