Our Fall Craft Party and a Recipe

This is a sponsored post written by me on behalf of The Hershey Company for IZEA. All opinions are 100% mine. It's no secret that I love Halloween parties.  I love everything about the fall, actually.  This year, instead of throwing a Halloween party like I usually do (well, it might still happen) I decided to kick things off early with a fun Fall Craft Party.  I live in a new neighborhood and everyone is very gung-ho to mean new friends and … [Read more...]

How to Have a Fall Dinner Party

It's that time of year--guests come to town a bit more frequently, everyone moves indoors for gatherings.  You might be thinking of even inviting a few people over...but what to do?  And how to not get overwhelmed?  It's easier than you think. Remember that old adage--K.I.S.S.  Keep it simple, stupid.  For me, that means a low-key menu:  soup, salad, rolls, and a garnish dish.  That's enough food and variety for everyone and most of it can be … [Read more...]

Cozy Fall Living Room Update

This post is sponsored by Target. No more saying "Fall is on it's way"-it's here!  The leaves are changing, it's nearly October, there's the nip in the air.  So it's perfectly safe to pull out your fall decor-no one can accuse you of being too anxious.  However, mine has been out since the end of August...but I wanted to add some extra cozy touches, especially since all the fall TV premieres are coming and we will be spending more time … [Read more...]

Cozy Fall Outfits

Fall is almost here! I hated my summer wardrobe most of this summer. It was boring, just tee shirts and shorts, mostly. I kind of don't really try in the summer...it's just so hot! I just want to wear something I won't melt in. So fall--fall is my jam. It cools down and you can dress up any outfit with boots, scarves, cardigans, etc. I love these cute fall outfits I found on Polyvore--my go to site for awesome fashion … [Read more...]

Spooky Halloween Signs

I've teamed up with a group of 75 bloggers to share tons of Fall Harvest Ideas with you! From crafts, to recipes, to home decor and more...we have you covered for Fall inspiration! One of my favorite parts of my Halloween party was the signs I made--which I haven't shared yet, until now.  I had several pieces of this old very rustic wood, and I knew I wanted to do something with it.  I wasn't sure what since I didn't have a whole lot of it. … [Read more...]

Fall Home Tour

I'm excited to be a part of Cherished Bliss's Fall Home Tour!  I just love looking at all these beautiful fall decorated homes and feeling so cozy.  I just wanted to snuggle under a blanket with a cup of hot apple cider!  If you just came from The Golden Sycamore, welcome! It's finally late enough in the season to stop saying 'I know it's early, but I've decorated my house for the fall."  And even though my house has been decorated for … [Read more...]

Light Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Bread

Everyone seems to have a great recipe for pumpkin chocolate chip bread.  But I wanted something that was a little healthier and I was actually pretty surprised when I couldn't find anything.  So I made up my own version of a lighter pumpkin chocolate bread.  I wouldn't necessarily call it healthy, but it's a little bit less guilt-ridden.  If you only have one slice (who eats only one slice?) it's 132 calories. And still moist and delicious. … [Read more...]
