Since the Fall weather has been so beautiful the last few days, we wanted to really enjoy it & take some photographs at the park.
So we grabbed our camera, walked to Starbucks (obviously. Starbucks is a must), than to the park. The local Starbucks is literally only a 2 minute walk from our place and the park is also close by, so it’s perfect!
In other news, we finally got a new computer & everything is up and running, so you can expect regular posts from now on – We are so excited!
How cute are these coffee cozies?!
I posted about them previously in my Favorite Things post which you can see here.
We love our coffee cozies! They do a great job of keeping the coffee warm. So handy & cute.
Laura got the Heart cozy, and Natasha got the Pumpkin cozy.
We ordered them from Faith’s Yarn Works on Etsy. Check out Ashlen’s work – she has some beautiful knitted goods. We are big fans! 🙂
Natasha’s Johnny Cupcakes hoodie. If you haven’t heard of Johnny Cupcakes, definitely check out his site! His story is so inspiring.
My pumpkin addiction continues with this Healthy Pumpkin Smoothie!
(I promise this will be the last pumpkin recipe for awhile 😉 )
Like almost every other girl, I am guilty of being obsessed with Starbuck’s Pumpkin Spice Lattes & Frappuccinos. When September rolls around, they are literally the only thing I want to drink & they are one of my favorite things about Fall. What I don’t like is the $5 a drink price tag. (right ladies?!)
My mom & I decided to make our own Pumpkin Smoothie. Not only is it a lot cheaper to make, it is also healthier for you & super tasty!
Healthy Pumpkin Smoothie Ingredients + Directions
Recipe adapted from bornandbreadny.com/pumpkin-smoothie/
1/2 cup canned pumpkin, frozen (freeze pumpkin in a plastic container for a few hours before use)
2 bananas, frozen (unpeel, chop & freeze)
1 cup soy milk (or almond, regular)
1/4 teaspoon cinnamon
2 teaspoon brown sugar
1/8 teaspoon nutmeg
Combine all ingredients in blender and blend until smooth. Top with crushed graham crackers, or top with whipped cream & a sprinkle of cinnamon!
