4 Things.

Hmm.  I'm suffering from writer's block.  I'm thinking about going to bed early.  And what I'm going to wear to work tomorrow.  Now that I can't wear jeans, it's a thing.  Everyday.  Except Friday.  Ok, I'll happily accept that I have nothing to write about and will get on to the main event.  This week's 4 Things.  Have a great week!!

A free printable of my favorite quote.
I'm still looking for some throw pillows.  Maybe I should just make my own?
It's almost October, how adorable is this Halloween treat?
And another fun October idea, a pumpkin house number.  So clever!

4 Things.

Hello, Friends!  Sorry I missed posting last week.  I had been visiting my family and just plum forgot!  Chances are, I was sleeping when I should have been blogging. 
Happy First Day of Fall!  By far my favorite season. The weather has
been nothing short of glorious here in Minnesota.  Sunny and highs in the low 70s.  And just today, I started to notice some leaves changing color.  I know that it will be bitterly cold before I know it, so I'm spending as much time as possible outside. 
And with that, here's this week 4 things. A sort of autumnal edition.
I love to bake, but rarely do.  But may have to try my hand at this Fresh Apple Cake.
Another yummy baking activity could be these Skinny Pumpkin Spiced Snickerdoodles.
You know I love chili and can't wait to try this Vegetarian Black Bean Chili recipe.
And with the onslaught on colder weather, we'll need some crafts to do.  How about this Perfect Whatever Bag?

4 Things.

While we may be headed straight for fall, I still think there's a little time for Chopped Chicken and Couscous Salad. There's still a few good week's of Farmer's Markets left here in Minnesota.

With cooler temps heading our way, how about stitching up a reusable coffee cup sleeve?

This post took me way back, to when I was about 14.  My first kiss was with a boy in an empty class room after chapel (I went to parochial school).  Do you remember yours?

I have two of these "economical" lamps.  I'm considering getting rid of them, but perhaps I'll recreate them!

4 Things.

Good heavens.  We are having a unprecedented heat wave here in the upper Midwest and it's been so, so very hot!    A month ago I was complaining that it was too cold and that I miss true summer weather.  Be careful what you wish for, right?  I can't complain too much, I have air conditioning at home and at work.

While I'm surviving a heatwave, it's hard to believe that I will need soup recipes, but I'm certain that the winter will come fast and furious soon enough.  So how about this Crock Pot Creamy Tomato Soup

And while we're still suffering through the heat, how about some popsicles?

Love this bedroom!

Air plants + String art!
