Fall 2017

Hey Everyone!  I am always playing catch up, but I’m usually pretty good about posting all my random daily events on Instagram and Instagram stories…SO CHECK IT OUT!

Let’s recap shall we?

Even though it’s like 90-something degrees out I am going to wear a sweater and crank my air conditioner up all the way because the Starbucks holiday beverages are out….and nothing is going to stop me from listening to my Pentatonix or Michael Buble Christmas music holding a hot eggnog latte dang it!

I don’t know what is wrong with Connor’s face…I think he’s over this picture?

I got the cutest pajamas for Christmas this year from Lazy One!  I just love the little bottoms on these…ha ha!  My friend Michelle has a coupon code for 10% off if you want to use it: “MML

I’m also going to be decorating for the holidays soon and I can’t wait to share that with you all!  Terence is trying to hold me back for as long as he can from putting up the Christmas decor.

I ordered the cutest quilt from Steinmart and it’s so soft too!  It was only $29.99, so it was a bargain and I’ve been enjoying watching ALL the Hallmark Christmas movies wrapped up in this quilt.

Bad Moms Christmas was just as funny and fabulous as I thought it would be!  My friend Courtney and I had a great time seeing a sneak peek of the movie before it hit theaters.  We got cute little “Bad Moms” glasses too!  Y’all have to go see this movie….it’s hilarious!

We had our favorite cousins from England come stay with us for a week and it was FABULOUS!  Oh those babies and their little British accents….I die.  We had so much fun and can’t wait to go back over the pond to visit them again soon!

Connor and his cousin Ethan are the same age and got along like best friends <3

Speaking of Christmas….I’m full swing into fall/Christmas photo sessions again.  I can’t believe this year has already passed.  I say that every year, but this year it truly has.  It has been a crazy year too…so much going on in the world.  Good, and a lot of bad things happened this year in our country, but I know God is in control of every situation.  Without knowing that and having hope I don’t know how you can survive in this world.

And what a wonderful life it is….I have a beautiful new niece, Ella Cate, and I can’t wait to hold her and smell her fresh baby goodness.  My twin sister Bonnie gave birth to Ella a couple of weeks ago.  If you’ve been following this blog awhile, then you know Bonnie used to blog as well.  It’s been so hard living away and not being able to go home….but I will get there eventually!  In the mean time I’m so thankful for modern technology, facetime, and photos.

I’ve got a great coupon code for you if you live in DFW or are traveling here for the holiday season!  Every year the Gaylord Texan has a beautiful ICE! exhibit and you can get 50% off your tickets using this coupon code below:

Well, that’s all for now…but much more to come!!!

It’s FALLING outside! Prepping for Fall + Enter to WIN!

This post is sponsored by Zoono GermFree24®, all thoughts and opinions are my own.

Hi All!

Okay so today it’s like 80-something degrees…but wait for it….Saturday it’s going to be in the FIFTIES!!!  Bring on the scarves, boots, and sweaters….YIPPEE!

Here’s my little punkin and the pumpkin patch.  He’s getting so big!  

I love sooooo many things about fall.  The smell in the air, the clothes, the temperature.  A reason to drink HOT coffee!  One thing I don’t care too much for is GERMS!

We use Zoono’s GermFree24® Hand Sanitizer.  It’s an FDA-compliant, water-based hand sanitizer that kills 99.99% of germs on contact and keeps killing them for up to 24 hours.

GermFree24® provides protection against germs for up to 24 hours. Over that time period, you might touch hundreds of surfaces, each covered with tens of thousands of microbes, half of which will stick to your hands. Here’s the lowdown on some of the germs you may encounter over a 24-hour period:

  • Doorknob: 8,643 bacteria
  • Computer mouse: 79,000 bacteria
  • Remote control: 17,000 bacteria

Why choose Zoono’s GermFree24???

  • Traditional alcohol-based hand sanitizers only work while they are wet and quickly evaporate. GermFree24® kills germs all day with one application.
  • GermFree24® doesn’t use chemistry to kill germs – it uses physics. It bonds to your skin’s surface and sets up a nano-molecular layer of “pins” that physically impale and destroy germs on contact.
  • GermFree24® has been proven to provide long-lasting antimicrobial protection against a wide range of microorganisms, including bacteria, viruses (such as influenza), fungi and mold.
  • GermFree24® does not rub off and will remain active on the skin’s surface, even with hand washing or sweating.

ZOONO GERMFREE24 STAYS ON FOR 24 HOURS EVEN AFTER IT DRIES!!!

These small Zoono GermFree24 spray pens are so easy to use and are easy to pack in your purse, backpack, or bag.  These are great for travel, camping, or school.

Halloween Boo-Quets with Mini Babybel

Happy Halloweeeeeeen Everyone!

Today I’m getting crafty and showing you a fun gift for a teacher, neighbor, friend, or whoever you would like to send a BOO to!

I made these fun Mini Babybel® boo- quets.  First – cheese is EVERYTHING!  Second – how cute are these little goodie buckets?  Third – let me show you how easy it is to make these cuties.

You can purchase Mini Babybel® at Target. It’s a wholesome, nutrient-rich, all natural snacking option for the whole family.  Mini Babybel is on sale all this month at Target.  It’s 100% real cheese & comes in six different varieties.

Connor loves Babybel because they are fun to open and come in really cute wrappers.  Look at these festive wrappers for Halloween.

Babybel is a great source of calcium and protein.  It’s perfect for snacking, lunches, or the occasional kitchen grazer 🙂 Not to mention it’s super convenient if your in a hurry or on the go.

This Halloween why not serve something healthy and delicious as an alternative to all that sugar?  These fun Halloween boo-quets cost less than a few dollars to make and I’m sure they would make someones day extra special!

Check out the video below to learn how to make these fun boo-quets!
