Month: November 2016

November Pinterest Collection

I love  Pinterest. Okay, that is an understatement…. I freaking LOVE Pinterst. It appeals to the  crafty,  organizational, DIY, visual person in me. So, I’ve decided  to do a monthly Pinterst board full of things I love that pertain to that month. I will feature a few things that I’ve either done myself, or are my favorite ( and want to do) here below. Then I will link you to the rest to check out and don’t forget to follow me on Pinterest. Also, feel free to comment below on what your Pinterest favs are for the  month, and if you have a board I would like to follow. Happy pinning!

I absolutely adore this! I am always trying to think of new and simple ways I can decorate my fireplace, especially for my favorite season.

This set up is super simple and can be done with things you already own!

This is one that I have on my thanksgiving table to do this year. All dollar store finds for a quick DIY!

This one really captured my attention because for one, it’s completely my style…. for two, I have a wood burning tool I bought on super clearance a couple years ago that I need to utilize finally !!

Is it Really Fall Already?!

Not sure where the time went but we have been having a blast so far this fall! Between school events, decorating, family fun, and costume making for Halloween, we have been staying busy. We have  a few traditions around here and one of them is going to the local farms here, including Lattin’s Cider Mill for their Apple Festival every year from the last weekend in September until the last weekend in October. There’s a petting zoo, pumpkin patch, hay rides, train rides, homemade cider they make on site with locally grown apples. Here are a few shots from Lattin’s.


Feeding the goats…

I just wanted to take him home!! <3

We had school and martial arts Halloween events…… which of course many things overlapped and everyone wants to do everything! With three kids…. we had to divide and conquer…

Baby brother went with us to the school’s  Fall Festival.

Entertaining baby brother while big sister was at a birthday party at the children’s museum and big brother was competing in a taekwondo competition.

He took Bronze in all three events: poomse, boars breaking, and sparring.

Field trip day for big sister class at Schilters Family farm. I posted a few pictures from there on my Instagram. It  was a perfect gloomy, chilly, no rain kind of fall day. It is very gorgeous out there at the farm!

And of course we had pumpkin carving the day before Halloween. Husband picked this one up at Home Depot. It’s so creepy looking he had to  grab it!

All the other pumpkins for the kids. From left to right… Baby brother, big brother, big sister.

The big Kids in their homemade robot costumes !

I hope everyone else had a Happy October. Here’s to a fun fall November!
