Etsy favs-fall

There's just something about the warm colors of fall. 
Oranges, browns, yellows, reds...I just love it.
  Here are some of my favorite Etsy items that just scream fall to me!

Where did the time go?  No, I'm not just talking about the fact that Christmas will be here before we know it.  I'm talking about the fact that my first born turned 5 over the weekend!
When did time fly by?
When did we become old enough to be the parents of a 5 year old? 
I'm in serious denial! 
As sad as I am to see him grow up, it brings me such joy to witness his growth and transformation into such a curious and fun young boy. 
We celebrated this past weekend with our families, Hulk style!

 (The boys after my cousin delivered the cake.  They were in awe!)


Here's to many more!

Wish List Wednesday

I've been eyeing some of these box subscriptions for quite some time.  
How awesome is it to receive a box of the latest beauty/parenting/household items each month!?!  
Talk about a gift that keeps on giving!
Seriously, if you google monthly subscription boxes you will find a plethora of them.  There's a subscription for dog lovers, candy lovers, coffee lovers...the list goes on!
Good luck monthly subscription shopping!
 Let me know what you find-

High Five For Friday

It's been a few weeks since our last high five so I feel like I have so much to share.  Here are just few of my favorites from the last few weeks.
1.  My best friend from college came to stay last weekend.  It's always great catching up and playing slumber party!

2.  I must have looked like a lost puppy the other day at the grocery store as I stared at all of the different coffee creamer choices.  2 different shoppers stopped to give me their input. 

I'm glad I listened...they are yummy!! (full disclosure:  French Vanilla was my favorite and no, there is no alcohol in Baileys Creamers.  Bummer, right!?!)

2.5  I enjoyed a cup of coffee in my snowman mug while I blogged last night. 

2.75 Nolan wanted in on the action, too.
 "my cup mommy"

3.  The boys painted their pumpkins.

4. Brandon carved his pumpkin.

5.  And last but not least...

Parker turns five this weekend so we went out for the celebratory chips and dip dinner!

We are looking forward to a weekend celebrating Parker with our family.  We hope you find reason to celebrate too!

I heart soup-Loaded Baked Potato

What's better than soup on a cool fall/winter day?  
A comfort food type of soup!

We had a few out of town friends over this weekend.  This soup was a big hit.  It's a must make this fall!
