Fall is in the air and it feels so good! This weekend I brought out my favorite Fall details and added a few more, just in time for a little dinner party with our friends. Fall has a natural feeling of warmth, coziness and provides the best opportunity to welcome guests with smells of pumpkin and cinnamon, warm soups and a beautiful little details. The little details can be a little touch to make it feel like fall indoors for your guests.

My favorite Fall Detail was a last-minute flower arrangement. I already had a large glass vase ready to go. I grabbed a bag of mini pumpkins at the grocery store and stacked them in the vase, then filled it with water. The flowers are from Whole Foods. Whole Foods is my dirty little secret for the best flower arrangements. They usually have a deal going on for “filler flowers”. I picked out three beautiful bouquets with the help of the florist and she made the arrangement of golden spider mums, little orange daisies and eucalyptus, at no extra cost I might add! The entire bouquet cost $12, add a few dollars for the pumpkins and we had the perfect centerpiece for the dining table. It created the perfect Fall feel I was looking for. I put the white and mixed white and orange mini pumpkins around the living room as well as a few glass pumpkins. After the guests left, I’ve kept the bouquet on the coffee table for us to enjoy all day. It’s still looking bright into the week. Our home has a feeling of Fall Ya’ll!

What are your favorite Fall Details? Do you like to fill your house with Fall decorations or open the windows and let Fall come to you?

 

Happy Wednesday, Friends!

Pretty Face, It’s A Beautiful Day

Okay, seriously! Have you checked out the newest Michael Bublé album? It’s fabulous! Of course being a fan since, I don’t know.. middle school, there was a great chance I’d fall in love with this one too. It’s A Beautiful Day is perfect for this sun shiny afternoon. I’ve got the windows open streaming sunlight in the house and it’s NOT snowing! What! I didn’t know blogging on a NON-snow day was even possible. I’m not complaining. I took a nice walk to Whole Foods and stocked up on dinner items for tonight! That’s another thing making this day so much better. Matt is finally done with busy season. So… it’s back to a normal dinner schedule, TOGETHER no less! What a thought! Tonight on the menu is Spinach & Feta Stuffed Chicken, fresh Papaya and a delish Greek Garbanzo salad. Mmm… now to start cookin’ it!

Happy Wednesday, Friends!

This Boy is Back.

Today is Tax Day. This, for an accountant, means from now on, Saturdays are the weekend again, 14 hour work days are in the past and life can be normal again. For me, the accountant’s wife, I’m looking forward to dinner together at a normal time, Saturday date days and not being completely exhausted on our only day together without work or school. Busy Season takes a toll, that’s for sure. But I am so proud of my amazing man for getting through it. It is not for the weak in spirit and he crushed it! He even started us on a new goal. A Matt Goal as I call them. Our new goal is one dessert, once a week. We like desserts. So, last night being the last day before our goal starts, we got frozen yogurt before midnight. One. Last. Dessert.

And today, I was craving a sweet snack. So, I made up a healthy one. It was a-mazing! Try this – Half a frozen Papaya smoothie box from Whole Foods or any frozen fruit. A half cup of plain Greek yogurt. Sprinkle a bit of Agave Nectar and Blend. Papaya Ice Cream – healthy and sooo delish!

Happy Monday, Friends!
