~Homemade Pumpkin Spice Creamer~

In honor of National Coffee Day, I finally made a batch of homemade pumpkin spice creamer!!


Here's the recipe....

In a saucepan, heat 2 tsp. pumpkin pie spice (I actually used 1 tsp. cinnamon + 1/2 tsp. nutmeg + 1/2 tsp. ginger - because it's what I had on hand!). Add 1/4 cup pumpkin + 4 T. brown sugar and whisk until blended. Remove from heat and whisk in 1 cup milk + 1 cup heavy cream. Cool; store in a container with lid in the fridge up to 1 week. ENJOY!!!

monogram monday: LulaRoe + Marley Lilly

I'm super excited about my latest purchases.....





...my first order from Marley Lilly and my very first pair of LulaRoe leggings!!!
❤️

I'm a little nervous about the leggings, but I really want a few new ((comfy)) SAHM outfits once work is over, plus I'm ready for some different choices in my closet other than jeans or yoga pants. The leggings are pricey so I bought my first pair on EBay (new) for a much better deal! I'm hoping that I love them!! I love the print/colors and they do look super comfy!!  I bought a ((long)) monogrammed long-sleeve tee from Marley Lilly in a neutral grey with a hot pink monogram. I'll update on these purchase soon!!

those little moments....

Nathan took a few days off from work which means Logan and Nathan get to see each other!! :O) :O) Logan wanted to get the whole family together so he suggested a cook-out at their house this weekend. Sounds perfect to me!! <3
It took a bit of finagling but we all ended meeting up there yesterday. The men did burgers, hot dogs, brats and baked beans on the grill, and I did jalapeƱo poppers (and lots of them), and corn on the cob. Everything was yummy!!! We hung out a bit before Nathan and Kayla had to drive back home.












{{{Okay! So, I could seriously squish her in this little robe that Nana bought her!!!}}} 


I got up early for some morning Kamry time. <3 <3 <3

{{{This is one of my favorite pictures of Kamry!! That sweet face!!!}}}


Lazy Sunday - watching football and snacking. Lindsey made taco dip and we finished off the rest of the poppers. Again time was short, but worth every minute just to be together!! 


A great weekend with the family!! Thats what it's all about!! 
Those little moments that mean the whole world!! xoxoxo
