Renovation Updates

 Hi there friends! I hope you all had a great week! We have been visiting my parents up in the Blue Ridge Mountains since Tuesday afternoon and it has been a dream. The weather has been perfect and there are still plenty of beautiful leaves to see. I will do a post on Monday with all my pictures but if you want to follow along for now, check us out on Instagram @dontmindourmess. And here's a quick sneak peak:

Sweet Potato and Kale Hash

 Good morning friends! I shared this breakfast recipe on Instagram last week and several of you were asking for the recipe, so here it is! Seriously I cannot tell you enough how much it means to me when you all ask for the recipes. It makes me so happy to know that somebody out there is actually reading this stuff!! This is one of our current favorites around here. Not joking I have made this 4 times over the past two weeks and the whole family loves it-- every single time!

10 Favorite Spooky/Thriller Books for Halloween-- Adult Version!

 Hi there! On Monday I posted some of our favorite Halloween books for kids and it got me to thinking that maybe some of us adults would like to read a creepy/chilling/thriller type of book this time of year too! I don't know of many Halloween themed books for adults (unless you count the super famous teenage vampire series we all read but pretend we didn't 😂), but I do know some good books that'll give you that chilled-to-the-bone feeling! I don't want to give too many details and give anything away, so I just gave a brief reason why I loved it. If you're looking for something a little on the creepy side to pick up and read, have a look at these suggestions!

15 Favorite Halloween Books for Young Kids

 Good morning friends and happy Monday! We had some big plans to go up to Blowing Rock and the Blue Ridge Mountains this weekend to peep some leaves but then 2/4 of our family ended up with head colds ('tis the season!) so we decided to sleep in our own beds for a few days instead. We stopped by our house Sunday to check the renovation progress and then drove around the nearby neighborhoods looking at some fun Halloween decorations. This one was a favorite by far-- they had EVERYTHING! Witches, pumpkins, skeletons, spiders, etc. We were stopped in front of this house for like 10 minutes oohhhing and aaaahing. 😀

Our Favorite Homemade PlayDough Recipe

 Good morning friends! Last week I was making play-dough for Lily Grace's preschool class and it hit me that we make this same play-dough recipe all the time and I have yet to share it.
