Football season is here and we are oh so happy about it!

Adam and I really enjoy watching football together, and we were both raised by families who love football. Ever since I can remember, watching the game together has always been a tradition for us, and I really like finding ways to make watching the game together extra special. Today, I'm sharing a handful of really easy-to-make, football-themed mason jar ideas that anyone can make before a pee wee or high school football game, tailgating or "homegating" get-together, or even a larger football party.

chocolate pumpkin shake

Monday mornings have felt like a drag lately. Right now, Adam and I are scheduling ourselves to work Saturdays and Sundays, so now our Mondays actually feel like Wednesdays. So, it definitely feels like we are only half way through our work week, and our workload has not gotten any smaller. Luckily, I have got a little extra pep in my step this morning! 

I am in a good mood on this Monday morning because of two reasons; one reason being that my mom comes into town in a few days and I am very excited to see her, and two being that I have been having chocolate for breakfast the last couple of days! Today, I'm sharing this yummy breakfast shake recipe I have been enjoying lately to help me get into the fall spirit! This chocolate pumpkin breakfast shake recipe is sweet, nutritious, and has less than 375 calories and 30g of sugar per serving.

Our Mini Linky Party | Week 90


Happy Fall!

Yay, I am so SO happy that fall is here! I can't wait until the weather cools down and starts to feel like autumn here.

I'll be spending all weekend gearing up for my upcoming trip--so that means lots of cleaning, catching up on work, and planning out my blog posts for next week. In case you missed it, I invite you to check out one of my posts from this past week where I shared a PayPal cash giveaway!

Date Night Idea | Netflix n' Chill

Okay, so maybe not that kind of "Netflix and chill." 

Not the kind we're both thinking about right now anyway (quick question: does anyone even still say that?!) Today's date night idea is brought to you by two of my favorite end of summer activities--catching up on our fall shows and cooling off with some cold treats! Special thanks to Outshine for sponsoring our date and this blog post.


Mid-week date nights can become a little complicated this time of year. Adam works for a certain technology company that comes out with, well, let's just call them fruit-inspired smartphones! *winks* He has had a lot of mandatory overtime to complete at work since the start of this month, which means less time for us to have our weekly date night.

Our Mini Linky Party | Week 89


Happy Saturday!

I'm spending my morning having some hot tea and cleaning up around our apartment, and then later  on today I will be doing some prep work for an exciting press trip I have coming up next month (more news on that soon). I'm also doing some finishing touches on a blog post that will go live on Sunday night, along with a cash giveaway and a roundup of some yummy recipes.

All of the fall and Halloween projects from last week's link party really got me into the spirit of decorating for autumn, so I brought out some fall garland and started decorating last week. I can't wait to see what you have to share at this week's party, too!

5 Unique Ways to Eat Guacamole

Tomorrow is National Guacamole Day, so naturally, we're sharing a handful of unique recipes to help you celebrate this yummy foodie holiday!

Let's be real--most of us don't make our own guacamole from scratch every time we are craving it. If I had to make guacamole by myself every single time I would lose my mind. Today, Adam and I are sharing some yummy recipes that incorporate guacamole and showcasing some recipe ideas that you may have not thought of using guacamole in. 

Sure, chips and guac is a classic. But sometimes I want to switch things up and eat my guacamole a little bit differently than I normally do. This year's National Guacamole Day will be no different, so if you're interested in seeing some different ways to incorporate guacamole into a meal be sure to save this post!

Our Mini Linky Party | Week 88


Good morning!

I'm calling it--this is definitely going to be the last weekend that we may venture out and go swimming. The temperatures have dropped significantly in the mornings, and for the first time in what feels like an eternity I woke up the other morning actually feeling cold! Adam and I had a really nice summer this year. 

We did a little bit of adventuring and traveling, and we put in a lot of work towards our work goals and our personal goals. Fall is a wonderful time of year in the desert and I am ready to embrace the new season. This weekend, my goal will be to start decorating the apartment with some fall accents and scouting out some possible Halloween decorations (yes, I am one of those people who starts decorating for Halloween in September #sorrynotsorry). 

While I'm figuring out how I want to decorate for this season, I'll be checking out Pinterest for some inspiration and I am hoping that some of you have some fall-related DIYs to share at this week's party!
