Beautiful Spring Days

Darlings, I just can't get over how beautiful spring is here on the central coast of California.  I snapped this shot while viewing my friend's wedding venue.  Can you believe this is going to be the backdrop of their wedding in September?  Our mind was just flooded with ideas for projects and details we had seen for her wedding, but once we saw this we realized that mother nature was providing the best backdrop we could imagine.  What would you prefer an indoor or outdoor wedding?

Food Porn Friday

Happy Friday!  Doesn't this pumpkin pecan cream cheese roll look fantastic! I know it's a classic but on an autumn morning this would hit the spot.  

Anyone have weekend plans?  Make and I are having a mini-break in Santa Barbara this weekend.  Until he moves up here Santa Barbra is half way between our two homes.  We're trying to see each other ever two weeks during our temporary long distance relationship.  Here's to a weekend of bike rides on the beach, french food, and wine!  Have a lovely weekend darlings!

Pumpkin Oatmeal Muffins

My niece and I love having girl's night sleepovers and we always have some kind of baking project.  The last time I gave her the option of making oatmeal cookies or pumpkin muffins in the morning. Then we thought, pumpkin oatmeal muffins...done! 

These babies turned out so moist and full of autumn joy with just the nostalgic touch of oatmeal.  If you're looking for a new treat give them a try, they'd be perfect for Thanksgiving guests!

Recipe after the jump!

Autumn Love

Everything about this picture makes me happy.  Now that I've gotten set up on the central coast I'm able to set back into the fall grove.  Apple picking, autumn leaves, and pumpkin everything!  What are your favorite things about November?  I love knowing that Christmas is on it's way, the family is about to gather for Thanksgiving, and that I still have a month of pumpkin joy! 

To top it all off I finally found a trench that I've been craving for a year and for under $50, check it out here

Happy Friday!  Who wants to celebrate with some pumpkin creme brulee, doesn't this look divine?  

I am so excited, today is my first day at my new job!  While I've been busy unpacking my boxes I am already so happy with my move. I can not wait to sink my teeth in today and meet the new office.   I know this weekend will be full of more unpacking, a little champagne, and a run on the beach.  What will you lovelies be up to?

Time To Celebrate!


It's time to celebrate!  After months of thinking, planning, and being very MIA Mac and I are moving.  I have found a new job that I am so excited to start and in a place that I have been dreaming of living.  

There are so many times when you hear that things happen for a reason and that hard work pays off.  I have to say that it's true.  Nothing feel so good as knowing that you've tried your hardest and accomplished the goals you set out to meet.  

In two weeks we will be residents of the California Central Coast.  It's only about four hours north of where we are now but I can't wait to wake up every morning to see the fog in the trees and spend my evenings running on the beach.  Here's to you and your goals, go out and get it deserve it!

Happy Friday darlings and happy October!  Don't these pumpkin muffins look fabulous?  I just can't get enough October.  The last three days since my birthday have been full of foggy grey mornings lasting well into the afternoon and gentle ocean breezes, it's finally starting to feel like autumn here!

Mac and I will be spending this evening watching The Shinning, if you're going to kick off October spooky movies you might as well go big.  Then Saturday is a family party to celebrate my birthday, my brother's, and my sister-in-law's.  Then it's a sleep over with my niece and I imagine Sunday morning will be hot cocoa and scrap booking with the cutie.  Have a wonderful autumn weekend loves!

28 Years Of Gratitude


October is here and so is my birthday!  I could not be more grateful for the year that I've had and for all the opportunities I have coming my way.  I was sitting the other day reading and just started smiling thinking about the wonderful friends, family, and man that I have in my life.  It is so easy to get stressed, disappointed, or down when we don't achieve what we had planned...but then I have to remind myself I have had 28 years of love, support, and kindness coming my way and what could be worth more than that.  Here's to those who make the years that much better! 

Now, let's go celebrate October like we mean it!  Time for that birthday PSL!

Talk about autumn in a cup, I am drooling over this picture!  Pure joy would be this lovely hot cocoa, a fuzzy blanket, and a cozy movie right now.  

What are you lovelies up to this weekend?  I am going to be recuperating from last weeks flu and hopefully eating a little pre-birthday cake.  Something tells me pumpkin cake with cream cheese frosting is in my future!  Have a great weekend loves!
