My kid is seriously a marathon sleeper. She is taking 3-4 hour naps in the afternoon. Growth spurt, I’m thinking. Thus, mums has time to do the housework, cooking AND some fun projects. And still have time to plop down and blog it out.
Why do I love today so much? I will tell you (act like you care, please).
I went and got my Pumpkin Spice Latte this morning with a girlfriend and when I came home, a reader, Erin, clued me in on a recipe to make your own Pumpkin Spice Lattes, in a crockpot.
DID YOU HEAR ME?????????
Make your own today. Recipe HERE.
I’ve said it before, but I’m in love with succulents. And I’m not about to spend the 20-50 bucks you have to at boutiques/stores for a prearranged bouquet. No maam. I’ll make it myself. And so will you. Right after this post.
So, I just got anything glass I had at the house (old flower arrangement vases), bought some rocks at TARGET for 4 bucks and clipped some succulents from my backyard. VOILA. Easy as that. Seriously–go do it today. And if you don’t have succulents in the back, go buy them (like 2 bucks a pop), or just come on over and get some from me. And I will make you some tea, too!
Fun, festive and chic foliage for the house:
My friend MaryAnn sent me a package in the mail. I love mail so very much that it could have been a box with packing peanuts and I still would have been happy. But no. In true MaryAnn fashion, it was full of bits and bobs. Books and magazines and wonderful treats. I can’t even tell you how thrilled I was to open it and look at the treasures one by one.
And look! Puffy mini-pillows: GASP!
I got this today:
Who wants to throw on an apron and cook with me? First recipe will be sampled next week. It will be delish. Or I will burn down the kitchen. Either one is a possibility.
I am so stinking giddy about Fall that I want to send gifts to everyone I know. I want to buy boxes of school supplies, markers and crayons and hand them out to every child in the neighborhood. I want to make Pumpkin Spice Lattes for each of you.
But since I can’t, I am going to put together one MOST MARVELOUS package of fall-ish goodies. Vintage delights. Exciting trinkets and glitzy wonderfulness. Perhaps some Pumpkin Spice love.
You want it. I know you do.
Comment and tell me anything you like about the season: recipe, fun fact, movie etc. before the 4th and I will draw a name on the 5th (my sweet niece, Charlotte’s birthday).
The winner will be announced on September 5th.
