Pumpkin Favorites

This is a sponsored post written by me on behalf of Burt’s Bees at Target. All opinions are 100% mine.

It is time for all things pumpkin again! It is one of my favorite parts about this time of year. Believe it or not, I am a grown adult who hasn’t ever tried actual pumpkin pie. Just because I am too scared to try pumpkin pie doesn’t mean I don’t have a serious love affair with pumpkin! I wanted to share a few of my favorite pumpkin things so that you can enjoy pumpkin goodness just as much as I do.

I have incredibly talented friends and I can’t wait for you to check out what they have to offer. Make sure you scroll back up to see them after checking out a tutorial that has been in the works for quite some time now… a Disney Princess Quiet Book!
Disney Princess Quiet Book on
This quiet book has been highly anticipated at our house and has already been a huge hit! The great thing about most of these busy book activities is that they can easily become pretty gender neutral. Most of them aren’t incredibly obvious that they are themed after a Disney princess, but they make any princess loving little girl a happy one! The part that will make you happy is knowing that there is very minimal sewing! I am SO not one to sew much, so I did the bare minimum. To make your own, you need…

Christmas Gift Idea for Elmo Lovers

We played with the Playskool Sesame Street Play All Day Elmo toy as part of a sponsored post for Socialstars. #PLAYSKOOLCREW

If you have followed along for a while, you know that Elmo has basically been another member of our family. My daughter fell in love with Elmo when she was just tiny and still loves him to this day! She was starting to grow out of a lot of her Elmo toys that she has, so when I saw the Playskool Sesame Street Play All Day Elmo toy, I knew it would be perfect for her! It is made for children ages 18 months to 4 years old.

Personalized Christmas

I think I am the most excited for Christmas this year. More so than I think I have ever been. Part of it may be the fact that we are kind of missing out on Thanksgiving, due to the fact that we will be on airplanes all day that day. I decided to get my house all decorated for Christmas before we go to Disneyland, so it will be all ready for us when we get home. I love coming home to a clean house and coming home to a clean AND decorated house will be magical!

Christmas Decor Idea with Custom Stockings on

Three years ago, I decided to decorate with mint, red, gold, and “gilver” and it is a color combination that I have really loved ever since. I love that I found a color combination that I haven’t gotten tired of because I have been able to switch out a few pieces of decor and add other things to make it feel more modern and on trend for the current year, without having to completely change all of my Christmas decor. This year, I wanted to add some more personal touches into our decor and I knew that Shutterfly would be just the way to do that. [Read more…]

Kitchen Pantry Subway Art and Giveaway

This post contains affiliate links.

I have lived in my house for just over 2 months now. Usually, I am the type of person to move in and get everything decorated right away. I totally have been dragging my feet this time around! Part of it may be the fact that we have heard horror stories about the property management company we are renting through and I get freaked out to hang anything up in my house. Just last week, I hung up the first thing in my house and it turned on some sort of switch within me and I have been slowly working my way through the house as I decorate. One of the first rooms I worked on was my kitchen. We spend a lot of time in there and I wanted it to feel like a happy place to be!

I absolutely loved the idea of putting some sort of design on my pantry door, but wasn’t sure what to put on it. I started looking through the Silhouette store and fell in love with this kitchen subway art graphic that they had. I purchased it right away! This was a fun little project and I love the pop of color that it helps add to my kitchen as well.

Absolutely Ageless

I experienced Aveeno® as part of a sponsored post for Socialstars. #Aveeno®

I have been trying several Aveeno® products lately and have been pleasantly surprised with each and every one of them. Each of them have felt comfortable and familiar to my skin. The most recent Aveeno® products I tried were somewhat new to my skin, but they have been perfect!

Aveeno Absolutely Ageless on

I tried out the Aveeno® Absolutely Ageless Restorative Night Cream and Aveeno® Absolutely Ageless Intensive Renewal Serum. The reason I say that they were a bit foreign to my skin is that I haven’t really ever used products that focus on anti aging properties. It just hasn’t been something that I have been that concerned about. It wasn’t until I started using these products that I realized that it is something I should definitely be thinking about! I am not a teenager anymore. Both of these products have helped the overall look and feel of my skin. My face feels nice and moisturized. [Read more…]

Easy Bedroom Update

My bedroom in my old house was a total disaster. I did very little decorating in it because it quickly had become a dropping spot for random stuff that needed a home. It didn’t feel like the mature, adult bedroom that I wanted.

Before Bedroom

Where we were just renting, we didn’t have the option of painting the room, but we needed to do something!

Before Bedroom makeover

We decided to get some great furniture pieces that would help make the room feel more grown up. We also took the initiative to clean out the room and make it a place free of clutter. It made a world of difference!

Headboard After

We found some furniture pieces from Sauder Furniture that we just fell in love with. We hadn’t had a headboard for our bed in years and adding this gorgeous headboard instantly made our bed look more grown up. [Read more…]

Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Cookie Protein Shake Recipe

I don’t know what it is about this time of year, but it feels like there is some sort of internal switch that turns on inside me that makes me want to shovel food into my mouth all of the time. The holiday treats are here and they are tempting us all of the time! I like to come up with a few healthy alternatives to some of my favorite holiday treats. It helps keep me on track a little bit better throughout the holiday season. One of my favorite ways to do this, is by making protein shakes. I am a huge fan of protein shakes! I am also a fan of pumpkin chocolate chip cookies, so I decided to marry the two together to make a pumpkin chocolate chip cookie protein shake recipe!

Being Thankful

I felt the magic of Swiss herbs with Ricola® as a part of a sponsored post for Socialstars. #swissherbs

It is the time of year that everyone seems to sit back and think about what they are truly grateful for. Although I wish I took the time to do this more often throughout the year, I am grateful for the reminder of this each year.

I always make a calendar for my mom for Christmas and I am really grateful for the opportunity to do that because it gives me a chance to take a look back at the past year and be reminded of the memories I have been able to take a part in. It seems to be the perfect way to spend this season of gratitude.

One of the most special times of the past year, was seeing my younger brother get married. It was such a perfect day to spend with my family and celebrate getting my first sister as well. My youngest brother left about a month and a half later to serve a church mission for two years, so this was a really special time for our family to spend together.
