Fall Harvest Salad

 Hello friends! Today I wanted to share the recipe I was telling you about last week. I have been making this salad for lunch on repeat the past few weeks and I just cannot seem to get enough of it. This recipe makes enough for two people, or if you're like me, enough for a salad at lunch today and a salad at lunch again tomorrow 😊.

Weekend Highlights

 Good morning and happy Monday! Today I am recapping our busy but fun-filled weekend as I link up with Heather for Hello Monday. I hope you all have a great Monday and get your week off to a strong start!

On Friday I subbed for a 4th grade class at my old school while Devin worked from home and watched the kids. When I came home from work they were playing with their construction worker dress up clothes. Both of these kids love to play dress up, and the construction outfits are a big hit these days!

Friday Favorites

Good morning and happy Friday! I don't know about you guys, but this week flew by for us! The kids had a teacher work day on Monday so we really only had 3 days of school this week. I am not complaining! I love it when a week flies by! Here's a look at some of our favorites from the week:

 Favorite Activities:

Earlier this week I stumbled across this online and immediately said "we have to make those!!" The kids would love them, and lets be honest.. I loved them too. 
Since I went a little crazy in the baking aisle at Walmart a few weeks ago, we still have plenty of candy eyeballs to go around. These were super simple to whip up, and the kids enjoyed them! 
They may not look exactly like the example but considering the ages of my helpers, I thought we did pretty well!
Please note Liam's full cheeks. Every time he put a spider leg on he kept trying to eat the spider, so we kept giving him leftover pretzels. He took that to mean "how many of these things can I fit in my mouth at once??"

Favorite Things We Ate:
I made this Fall Harvest Salad almost every day for lunch and it was delicious! I'll share the full recipe next week but it has kale, apples, pears, pumpkin seeds and more. It's a perfect crispy, crunchy, healthy fall salad.

Favorite Outfits:
Fall is here and I could not be happier about it! Here are a couple fall-is outfits I wore this week:
Jumpsuit/Denim Jacket/Leopard Shoes (old, but similar here)
Green Pants/Gingham Shirt/Leopard Shoes (old, but similar here)

Skeleton Adventures:
I keep forgetting to post the skeleton adventures on my Instagram but don't worry, we are still doing them! Here are a few from the last week:
These have turned out to be a big hit not only in our neighborhood, but for the FedEx drivers, Amazon. drivers, mail carrier, construction workers, etc. People keep stopping at our house every day and taking pictures, which makes me so happy!! This definitely takes a little time and effort, so it is wonderful to know it is appreciated!

Today I am linking up with Andrea and Erika for Friday Favorites. Have a great weekend!

Crispy Air Fryer Green Beans

 Hello hello! I know I have been sharing recipes less frequently, but to be honest as we navigate this whole plant-based thing, I've been following other people's recipes more often than not. Today however, I have a quick healthy side item we've been whipping up pretty frequently. Bonus: it's kid approved!

Pinterest Surfing: Halloween Crafts for Kids

 Hello there! I hope you're all having a good week so far. As we get nearer to Halloween my kids are getting more and more into all things spooky. I love doing arts & crafts with the kids and have been browsing on Pinterest for some cute and simple ideas. I figured I'd share just in case you're looking for a fun activity to do with your kids too!

Life Lately

 Good grief! Does anyone else feel like just when you get established in your routine, something throws it off again? We have had a tricky last few weeks and things are already popping up to make this week a little loopy too. When will it all calm down? Luckily nothing has been serious, just crazy busy. Anyway, today I wanted to share a little bit of what we've been up to lately.

Friday Favorites-- Char-boo-terie Boards

 Good morning friends and happy Friday! Today I am sharing something I've made several times over the past few weeks for the kids as an afternoon snack/lunch board-- we call it the char-boo-terie board. 😊 The idea for this initially came from the Fresh Market magazine, but theirs was mostly desserts/sweet treats:

Fall Bucket List

 Good morning friends! I hope you're having a great week so far. A few weeks back Adrienne posted her fall bucket list and I thought "Oh-- I need to do that!". Well, true to form, I made a mental note of it but then completely forgot about it an hour later. I swear this is the story of my life-- if I don't write it down immediately, the thought is gone. Anywho... I was browsing Pinterest the other day and this picture popped up:

September Books

 Good morning! Happy Monday! Today I am sharing the books I read in the month of September. I had all these plans to knock out a bunch of books once the kids went back to school, but then everybody got sick and I took a week off of reading. Oh well, there's always next month! I am hoping to read a few spooky/thriller type books in October so if you have any recommendations, please leave them below!
