Updates & Fall To Do List

Hi everyone, long time no chat right?  Just wanted to stop in and give some updates and share my Fall to do list.  First, things have been pretty busy in the C household.  With house projects and all the other fun stuff, there's no time left anymore.  ;)  I can't believe it's already October!  Secondly, I have a full time job!  Totally unexpected but a total blessing as well.  The place where I have been freelancing for about a year now has finally asked me to go full time.  It was quite a shock when I received the call.  I start on Monday.  I've already started shopping for new clothes, to which my hubby said the money I make at this job is my spending money.  I'm sure I'll make him regret those words in a few months. ;)  Though he already asked if we could upgrade our TV once the job the was official, haha.  

Okay, so here is my Fall To Do List:
  • Have a housewarming party.
  • Pick apples from our local farm.  This is actually a tradition we've done every year since we started dating.  I hope to get out there before the season ends.
  • Make chili.
  • Take a stroll and enjoy the leaves turning.
  • Clean out more of my closet and purge.
  • Go pumpkin picking and paint them or glitterize them.
  • Attend a high school football game and drink hot chocolate or apple cider.
  • Decorate the house with fall decor.
  • Scarves, leggings, and boots. (This weekend it's suppose to be 80 degrees, boo.)
  • Hand out candy to trick or treaters.
  • Rock dark nails. 
  • Have a mini bonfire with s'mores.
  • Try a new hairstyle.
What's on your Fall To Do List?

MIMM: Exciting News!

We bought a house! We finally closed this past Thursday after waiting for 2 months so that the sellers could find a new place to live. We're currently painting and moving things in.... I hope to have pictures in the near future!

Friday Favorites

Friday Favs 8/16

1. How cute and festive is this Sequin 3/4 Sleeve Polka Dot Top?  It has all of my favorite things in one item.  It can be paired with dark skinnies and cognac boots for the weekend or be tucked into a pencil skirt for work.

2. ABC's Mistresses- I didn't have high hopes for this show when I first started watching it, but boy I have gotten sucked into it.  It's sort of Sex and the City but in a suburbia setting, with each woman having their own separate problems.  I like to tune in because you never know what's going to pop up next.

3. C9 Women's Seamless Bra with Removable Cups is seriously the most comfortable sports bra ever, plus it doesn't give you a uni-boob. I needed some new sports bras since mine are about oh, 3 years old?  I ordered 4 and I am seriously thinking about ordering more.  But don't delay, they are selling out fast online and in stores.

4. Organix Morrocean Argan Oil Shampoo and Conditioner is amazeballs.  I have thick, wavy hair that sometimes gets frizzy.  Since using this shampoo I have noticed a difference in my hair.  I can even go to bed without blowdrying it and it's not as frizzy as it use to be in the morning.  I was skeptical at first with the conditioner since it didn't feel heavy hence I didn't think it would work on my hair but it does.  I definitely recommend this if you're looking to try a new shampoo and conditioner.

5. Tabasco Green Jalapeno Hot Sauce, I blame this on Chipotle since this is where I was introduced to this amazingness.  No joke that hubs and I can go through half a bottle in one sitting at Chipotle.  I'm seriously considering buying a gallon of it.  Yup no shame at all.

6. Cheesy Kale Chips are so addicting.  I make mine with nutritional yeast which has a cheesy flavor.  (You can read more about nutritional yeast or nooch here.)  The other day I made with garlic powder to and it was delicious as well.  There are a lot of variations out there but here is my quick and easy method to making them.


  • Set oven to 300 degrees and spray baking sheet with non stick cooking spray. 
  •  Wash and dry kale making sure that leaves are completely dry.  
  • Place onto baking sheet and spray with cooking spray. 
  •  Generously sprinkle nutritional yeast and garlic powder.  
  • Place into oven for about 45 minutes or until crispy.  
  • Enjoy!
