This and That


1. We took the boys to a pumpkin patch and they had a blast. They picked the biggest pumpkins and we can’t wait to carve them.

2. Curious, what kind of Halloween candy are you passing out this year? Can’t wait to share our costumes with you guys. The boys picked out some pretty hilarious ones this year.

3. Did anyone see The First Man? We had a busy weekend so I didn’t get to go. I still want to see it.

4. End of an era.

5. We are excited the NBA is back. Should be an interesting season.


1. New this week, the perfect cinnamon rolls for fall and my new favorite soup because it is SO easy and delicious!

2. I was in Ithaca, New York this week to celebrate my friend Gina’s new cookbook. We were glamping at Firelight Camps, which is a super cool campsite, but it was freeeeeezing, like in the 30’s at night! I have never camped or glamped before and it was an adventure! I don’t think I am cut out for camping, but I survived:) I did have a ton of fun with my blogging friends. We toured Ithaca, visited a few waterfalls, went hiking, and ate lots of good food from Gina’s cookbook. We also got to eat at Moosewood restaurant which was a highlight for me since I’ve had their cookbook for years. It was so good!

3. Cozy, cozy!

4. Wowzers!

5. You need this.

6. YES to these!

10. A good sports bra for a really good price!

Get the best of the best!
