Some Favorite Things

Y'all I can't even get over that its Friday, not only that but that Thanksgiving is one week away!  
Thomas and I tossed around the idea of hosting but decided that we would take a break this year and enjoy a "stress free" holiday season at his parents house and my family's homes.  I can't tell you the relief that actually gives me! As much as I love hosting holidays it's really fun to just be a guest!


Spinach & Bacon Baked Egg Soufflé

I have been craving these so much lately.  I absolutely love them and totally hit the spot in the morning.  If you haven't tried them - do yourself a favor and pick one up today!


we just picked up these pajamas and they are my 
favorite ones for her so far.  I love the fleece 
because its so nice and warm and you can't
beat the footies to keep your little's toes warm
at night while they are sleeping!  These are the 
perfect combination of my favorite colors for Ellie
and I love how they can transition into all of winter.


I feel like I have been keeping a secret from you guys.  I recently found this blog and she has the best style sense ever.  She is also amazing at DIY and I want to be her best friend.  If you haven't already checked out her blog - you are going to want to do that! It is pretty top notch.


I love baking and bringing desserts to family dinners is one of my favorite things to do!  If you are in charge of dessert this year for Thanksgiving and are in search of some inspiration look no further.  I have three recipes that are delish and totally go with the theme for Thanksgiving.  First up is my fool proof Pumpkin Crunch Cake it takes very few ingredients and is sure to please!  If Pie is more your thing then this is the recipe for you, this is my favorite Pumpkin Pie because it is nice and thick and dense - just the way I like it. And if Pumpkin isn't really your thing then you have to try my Applesauce Cake, oh yum!


We are heading out for a day of Christmas shopping on Saturday.  Our plan is to brave IKEA on the weekend (eek!) to pick up a few things for Ellie, I am meeting someone to pick up a few more cloth diaper items and then we are headed to the old spaghetti factory and I love the Garlic Mizithra with a side of meat sauce!! Oh I cannot wait to get that in my belly!


somehow my little muffin turned 1 1/2 today and I am just loving this age!! check out her monthdate here!
