A Walk In The Park

IMG_1172 good

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! 🙂

Healthy Pumpkin Smoothie

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!
