Remembering: A post I did a few years back on what to do with all the leftover Halloween candy and how I'm planning to apply the same method this year. We ended up not attending our church's Trunk-Or-Treat, so at least our candy yields won't be over the top this year...which is totally fine with my waistline. side note: I need to start running again...ugh.
Giggling About: A post I wrote for Austin Moms Blog last week...10 Signs You're Living in a Girl's World. I had so much fun writing this post because it is totally MY LIFE and I just know other mommas of girls can relate. Naked Barbies, no toilet paper EVER, sassy attitudes, etc.
Planning: I'm putting together a Holiday Gift Guide Pinterest board which will translate into several gift guides here on the blog. My SIL Dena (aka the best gift giver EVER) will be providing her talents in compiling these guides...make sure to stay posted and let me know if you'd like to see something specific featured!
Anxiously awaiting: DO YOU KNOW WHAT SATURDAY IS??? Of course to most people it's merely the day after Halloween and the first day of November...BUT, I consider it the beginning of Christmas Music listening season!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Pandora and I will be inseparable for the next two months...BFFs until Christmas, at which time I'll totally drop her like a bad habit.
Interested to know: What is your favorite ski resort? I've skied quite a few resorts in Colorado, a couple in New Mexico, and one in California...but have always wanted to visit a Utah mountain. This December, we're heading up to the darling town of Breckenridge for a little trip. Tyler Bree and Riley skied last year in Angel Fire, so I'm hoping they'll remember how!
Baking:Cinnamon Swirl Pumpkin Banana Bread...I made this the other day and it lasted approximately 1/4 of a day in our house. Slather it up with some Irish butter and you've got an Autumn party in your mouth! I'm trying out all sorts of new pumpkin recipes these days...I'll make sure to share if I come across any more get-in-my-mouth-now recipes!
Keeping a secret: Guess what?!? We're taking our kids on another Disney Cruise!!!! You can see my comparison of a Disney cruise to others HERE...which pretty much sums up how I feel about it. SO EXCITED....but shhhhh, we aren't telling the kids until Christmas! I've got to think of a fun way to divulge the secret. Last time we did a scavenger hunt, but I'm thinking of maybe puzzle pieces that fit together this time. And I've got to keep my dang mouth shut! I've almost let it slip out more times than I can count...thankfully I still have gullible children. :)
