Friday Favorites and Pumpkins!

Happy Friday Friends! Thanks for stopping by the blog today! I love sharing my Friday Faves every week! It has been a whirlwind of a week over here. DC has been working very long hours that have changed everyday. Then he was off Thursday and today! Yay! As promised I also got some more workouts in this week and I am a bit sore. I am hoping DC’s schedule is a little more normal next week so we can get on that routine a little better. I am a routine type of girl!

This weekend is also going to be a busy one. We have a cookout on Friday and I have a girl’s night Friday night (What? That NEVER happens!)! Saturday we have a birthday party and friends coming over and then Sunday church and more birthday parties. So check in Monday for a fun Weekend Wrap Up! Now on to the usual Friday Faves!

Mug Cakes

I was wanting a little sweet treat so I got the idea to whip up a little mug cake. I used this recipe for a guide and inspiration. It was devious and the boys loved it as well! Now I want to play around with more creations.

He really wanted there to be more!

Fall Decorations

I am thinking about doing a post on decorating on a budget. Since we move so often and never know how much space we will have at the next place I really like to decorate smartly. So I hit up the dollar store and took some flowers, pinecones, leaves from the yard to make a few fall decorations for the home.

Pumpkin Painting

It was so fun making memories of Mason decorating his first pumpkin! He loved it and we were very excited he did not try to eat the paint! Winning!

Just two years ago we were announcing to the world that we were having a ‘little pumpkin’ and now he is painting a little pumpkin! The thought just puts me in awe!

Breakfast Muffin

friday fave

I normally like eggs or oatmeal for breakfast but it was a busy morning and I wanted something quick. Remembering I had this Mighty Muffin Maple Pumpkin I knew it would be easy and perfect! I topped in with my almond butter and it was amazing! Next time I am going to have to hide it from the little toddler because he kept stealing mine! l 😉

Around the Web

This had me to tears! I get it! I freaken care and I don’t think it is a terrible thing!

Salt maybe isn’t so bad after all…..

I think these phones are going a bit too far.

I need to make this!

Also, I am pumped to be expanding my Beautycounter team! If you are interested in the mission or joining the team message me! I would love to chat!

Question: Would you spend $999 on a phone? Favorite go to quick breakfast? What is your Friday Fave?

    I love your decorations! My favorite quick breakfast is overnight oats! Granted they do take some prep but since that happens to night before it’s an easy grab and go breakfast.

    Your decorations look adorable. I love those muffins for a quick breakfast or snack. I don’t eat them often, but try to keep one in the cupboard. Enjoy your girls night, hope you guys have a great weekend!
