Friday Favorites & Christmas Ornament Exchange Announcement

Friday I am so glad you are finally here!!  I hope you all had a great week.  It was a good week here, but a long one.  I'm glad to see the weekend almost here!  Emma and I are heading to the movies tonight, and then Saturday she and I are heading out of town for the weekend just the two of us!  It's definitely much needed for Emma to have a little one on one time without her sister ;)

And can you believe we are officially less than a week away from Thanksgiving!  Where did November go??  Alright, let's recap our week a bit =)


Recipe Club

Happy Wednesday Friends!  It's Recipe Club day and I have a couple of recipes that I am excited to share with you today!  So make sure to grab our graphic and join myself, Heather and Jenna and share what you've been cooking lately!

hello Monday

Happy Monday Friends!  I have been a little MIA from this blog for a couple of weeks, but I am happy to be back today!  I'm excited to recap our weekend with you =)  So join myself and Heather, linkup your Monday post below.  Anything goes!

Thursday

Happy Thursday Friends! 
This has been a crazy week.  We are currently on day 4 with no power.   We are hoping and praying that in the next day or 2 it gets restored.  We had a huge windstorm that hit our area and did a lot of damage.  But what has been awesome is seeing power companies from other states and Canada here to help.


I hope to be back tomorrow, but if not, we'll hope for Monday!
I hope you have a great day and week!!

Happy Halloween


I hope you all have a great Halloween!!!  There is no post today from me because we had a huge storm hit our area yesterday and we have been without power since about 7:30 yesterday morning.  We are hoping and praying it gets restored today, because if not we probably won't be out trick-or-treating :(   The power company says it could be several days.  We are keeping our fingers crossed!!!
Have a great day and night everyone!!!

hello Monday

Happy Monday Friends!  I hope that you all had a great weekend, and I hope that you will link up with Heather and I are share your Monday post. Anything goes!!

Five Things Friday

The last Friday of the month is a fun linkup that I am excited about!
Today I am excited to share that myself and Emily are co-hosts for this months 5 Things Friday.  



Fall Pictures

Happy Thursday Friends =)

A couple of weeks ago we had family pictures done.  The night before I talked to Alyx about how fun it was going to be and this and that. The day of the pictures she was great, however she didn't nap which I was really hoping she would have.  And let me tell you, it made for a challenging evening of picture taking.  She wasn't having it like at all.  I left frustrated and I was certain none of them were going to come out good.  But, I was wrong, thankfully!  Our photographer was great, and captured some really great photos.  I'm sure in some of them you will be able to tell from her facial expressions of how our evening went! haha =) 

I'll warn you now...this is a super picture heavy post!

Coffee...Mugs...and Giveaway!

Happy Wednesday Friends!!
I guess I can admit now that Summer is officially over.  As much as I am going to miss it, I do love fall.  Fall in Maine is absolutely beautiful.  The weather is cool so jeans, boots, and long sleeve tops are perfect.  And now that school has started, the temperatures are getting cooler.  You know what I love about this time of the year?  Coffee.  Well, who am I kidding, I love coffee anytime!  But coffee in the fall is just cozy.   And what better way to kick off fall then with a coffee mug exchange =)

Meet & Greet Tuesday

Happy Tuesday Friends!  I hope you all had a great Labor Day weekend.  Today is back to school for Emma and it's her first day of Middle School!!  I will do a complete recap on that tomorrow.  

Today I am starting something new.  A fellow blogger, Emily, used to blog over at Simply a Rough Draft.  She used to have a weekly post about getting to know other bloggers better.  Well, I reached out to Emily and she so graciously "passed the Meet and Greet torch" along to me.  I am so excited about this, and I hope you guys will enjoy it as well!

Sweet Summertime

Happy Thursday!!  I finally feel like i'm getting back into the groove of blogging every day and I have to say I love it!  I took a bit of a break the last month or two and it wasn't intentional, just life got busy.  Very busy.  But now we are finally settling into a good routine, just in time for school to start in a couple of weeks! haha =)

With my new job I have weekends off.  And with that, I am able to get to my parents house a lot more than before.  The girls love it because not only do they get to see that side of the family, but in the summer they really enjoy swimming in my parents pool =)  A couple of weeks ago we went for just the day.  Emma loves going to the Mountain that is there, and it's such a pretty ride there.


Camp 2017

Happy Wednesday Friends =)  This week just seems to be flying by for me.  Hopefully it's the same for you!!
Back a couple of weeks ago we were finally able to get to camp for a weekend.  We used to go out a lot more, but with our busy schedules it's hard to get there.  So let's recap that weekend =)

S'mores Dip

Happy Tuesday Friends!  Can you believe we are in August already!  Isn't it insane how fast this summer is going?!?  One of our favorite things about summer, are evening campfires.  And with campfires come s'mores!  Who doesn't love s'mores?!!? 

Today I am sharing a s'mores dip recipe!


I know I post a lot of easy recipes, but this one takes the cake.  It's simple.  


3 Ingredients.  That's it.

6 Hershey Bars
1 Bag of Marshmallows
1 Box of Graham Crackers

Layer your pie plate with the Hershey Bars.


And then top off the chocolate with marshmallows.


Stick it in your oven at 425 degrees for 7-8 minutes.
You could even put this on top of your campfire and cook it!


Look at how perfectly toasted those Marshmallows are!
That is just how I love them =)




Look at the ooey gooey goodness!!
