October 3, 2014


Wow. This week quite literally flew by (well, not really, but still). We're back with kids and while it's a lot of fun, it's also super busy and kinda chaotic. I'm excited for this new bunch of kids and also excited for a weekend of getting caught up and catching some sleep, too.

What are your plans for the weekend?

I need a box of these cards.

I'm kinda really liking this fall outfit (minus the hat because this girl cannot rock a hat to save her life).

The perfect outdoor venue.

This pin. So much truth in one pin.

The best way to reheat your pizza at home.

Do you talk to strangers? A truly fascinating read. 

10 useful websites every blogger should know.

Does someone want to make me these? Pretty please?

Is there such thing as puppy fever? Because this little pup is adorable.

On loving the state you're in. 

I love this blogging tip and challenge! I'm thinking I just might have to try it out.

6 tips for long term blogging. Such a great read after publishing this post of mine!

Pumpkin pie pudding!

And funfetti biscotti!

I've been a little stuck when it comes to blogging and I'm thinking these tips will come in handy!

And I want one of these in my backyard.

The quickest way to look put together.

Have a great one!

p.s. I know that I haven't posted a 365 post in looong time. Not only am I behind on blog-reading, but photo-taking, too apparently!


  1. I bookmarked that outfit too (also minus hat, ha!) - so cute. And I love all these blogging-related links. Definitely inspiring and helpful. Thanks!

  2. Kiki, I have to be really honest here. The problem with your bits and pieces is that they always send me on rabbit trails and I soon forget where I started!! You find too many good things, my friend! ;)

    Those october blogging topics make for a great back up list, and I love the 10 useful blogging websites link, especially word mark.it! I have a little chalkboard in the kitchen, and I never know HOW I should write what I want it to say. This little website is going to come in so handy for stuff like that.

    Annnnd puppy fever is real my friend. IT IS REAL.

    Gosh, you linked to me. Yay! I can't wait to see what you do with the challenge. I hope you'll share it!

  3. Ha! I was reading Christina's comment below and laughed because I think the same thing! So much goodness!!

  4. Oh my goodness, those apple blondies look SO delicious! If they wouldn't go bad in the mail, I would totally make you some and send them to you. Only if you sent me something yummy, too Muahaha ;) I also trailed off on all the awesome links and forgot where I started

  5. there is such a thing as puppy fever!!!!

  6. Who doesn't love a puppy? Thanks for sharing.

  7. Haha! I love that card!! That outfit is cute! I really like the purple with the army green! YES! Amen to that post! I needed that!! I need those apple blondies! they look soo yum! Puppy fever is a REAL thing! I get it anytime I see a dog (on tv or in real life!) and that dog is too cute!! Love that post on angles! They help create such a different feel to an image!! Pumpkin pie pudding!? YES please!! Those are some good topics! I might have to pick a few too!! Yes! That fire pit looks like it is inviting lots of fun memories to be made!!!

  8. So I totally thought I responded to your comment, whoops! Anyway, that outfit is super cute and definitely fall-ish, right? I don't really have the pieces to recreate it right now, but I'll definitely use it for inspiration! :)

  9. Okay, so I thought I had responded to these comments, but apparently I didn't. Whoops! :)

    Anyway, I love that these posts send you on rabbit trails! I love these kinds of curated lists and I love that you love them, too!

    And isn't word mark.it cool? I was clicking through all of those resources and looooved that one. It's so cool!

    I didn't get a chance to do that photo project this weekend but I'm hoping I get a chance to soon!

  10. I love that these posts send people throughout the blogworld. There really is so much goodness in the blogging community, isn't there? :)

  11. I know, right? I came across that pin on Pinterest and had to include it in last week's post. You should totally try sending some to me, too, haha. Cookies in the mail are THE best. :)

    And I love that you agreed with Meg and Christina. These posts are supposed to send you on trails as you click through all the links!

  12. Chelsea, I have to say I always love hearing what you think about my Bits and Pieces posts. It sounds weird, but I love hearing that you like them! :)

  13. Good, because after seeing those photos I DEFINITELY have it. :)

  14. I know, right? Puppies of all shapes and sizes are adorable! :)

  15. Aubrey, your enthusiasm for my posts is sooo incredibly contagious. You seriously make me smile every time I see your reactions to these posts of mine! :)

  16. Awe thank you! And I'm glad that you like them, I always feel bad cause I just jump around and ramble :)

  17. love love love all of these.
    and "the perfect way to look put together" - put on a skirt, haha so true!
    and that pumpkin pie pudding = swooon

  18. Isn't it crazy how a skirt really changes things? I've found the same goes for wearing boots or a dress. There's something about a piece of clothing that can really change how you walk/feel. :)

    And pumpkin pie pudding sounds amazing right now. We got some pumpkin-y things from Trader Joe's this week and it's like fall heaven right now!
