Oh Fall.

I'm willing Fall to come early today. I've lit my pumpkin candles, put pumpkin wax in the warmers and I've even thrown up all of my decorations (including pumpkins) throughout the house. I don't know if it'll work but it's definitely changing the feeling in my home.

There's something about cooler weather that calls me. It's the wrapping up in a cozy robe while drinking a warm drink. It's the flavors and scents that fill the air. The change in the leaves on the mountains. It's wearing a big sweater over leggings. (Though we haven't gotten there yet.)

Another thing I've recently noticed about the cooler weather in my life is it bringing out the bookworm in me. In the last week I've read 4 1/2 books. I've been to the library 3 times. I have yet to be disappointed. If you follow me on Goodreads you'll know what I've been reading, but for those of you who don't....

11 More Questions.

I am so excited to finally feel well enough to get to writing this post. I've been going over answers in my head for weeks, thinking of who to tag, trying to figure out what pictures I want to use if any(turns out I didn't ha- just the 3 I found online). Mistle from Sweet Tea & Hydrangeas tagged me in her Getting to Know Me post back in July! If you don't know her yet, head on over and say hello! 
Questions to Answer:
1. Who inspired you to start a blog? In 2009 my husband and I began trying to start a family. Things were not going easily or as it seems to have happened for those around us. I was constantly wandering the world wide web in hopes of finding answers or ideas, comfort or friendship and that is when I started to come across blogs. I wish I knew the first one I came across or that the others than followed were still around so you could get to know them.
2. Where are you originally from? I was born in Utah but grew up in California, only to move back to Utah towards the end of high school. I feel like both have a special place in my heart.
3. What do you like to do for fun? I love to be creative. Baking, crafting....things like that. I don't do it very often because let's face it, kids come first in my life and if they can't help it doesn't happen. 
4. If you could travel anywhere in the world, where would it be? Ah! I don't know! I feel like Australia would be amazing- my dad spent 2 years there on his mission and loved it. It would be amazing to go and see what he saw!
5. What is your long-term goal for your blog? I honestly just want to remember. Remember the things I thought were a big deal, those things that actually were and all the little in between stuff. I do love the friendships I've made through blogging and hope to continue with that.
6. What are two of your most popular posts? If only I could actually find the good ones- I know for sure that My Ring was one of them, and Guest Post is what comes up in the stats as the top! 
7. What is your favorite tv show or movie? Eek! I watch so many shows & movies that there are too many to just name one! I love My Best Friend's Wedding (or anything with Julia Roberts) PS I Love you & The Other Guys are a few favorites! Also Grey's Anatomy, Scandal & How To Get Away with Murder are a few TV show loves!


8. What advice would you give to bloggers that are just starting out? Just be you and keep going. I feel like trying to fit in with everyone else gets you no where! 
9. What is your favorite food? Mexican- though I've had some amazing homemade Mexican dishes thanks to my wonderful Mexican family. If only I could make it as well as them.
10. If you could listen to one cd for the rest of your life, what would it be? I love the Michelle Branch Spirit Room CD. I've had it for years and every time I find it- I love it more.


11. What is your favorite store to shop at? Target is the top of my list for sure! I try to avoid it so I'm not tempted to buy all of the things!


Now as for finding people to do this list I'll let you decide if you want to or not!

Here are my questions:

Where are you from?

What is the best thing about your town/city?

Favorite recipe?

What makes you want to blog?

What are your favorite blogs to check out?

Do you have a dream vacation?

Favorite books?

What shows are you looking forward to having come up this fall?

Favorite holiday coming up & why?

Coffee Talk {2}

I'm starting this week out with a To-Do List on my mind- making this link-up the perfect one for me!

1. Clean house. My house looks great Monday night-Saturday morning, but sometime between Saturday Morning and Monday afternoon a tornado comes through and manages to destroy everything. I've been trying to work on this but just can't seem to get there. 

2. Subway art printables. I've been working on a few prints, a couple for my house and one for a lady in my neighborhood. I get up before my girls lately and just watch shows while I wait for them to wake up, instead I'm going to start pulling my laptop out and working away. 

3. Pick a hair cut/color. My anniversary is in 4 weeks. I am getting my hair done and have no idea what to do, I'm determined to have at least a couple ideas by the end of the week so I can make an appointment. 


There ya have it! Three of my goals for the week!

Linking up here today!

Summer Reading.

As I will be spending lots of time inside enjoying the comfort of the air conditioner as well as lots of time outside watching my girls get their energy out I decided I need to get a good list of books to read this summer! So far with the [little] wandering of blogs I've been able to do the last couple days I have a few books on my list!



In The Unlikely Event- Judy Blume

The Book of Joan- Melissa Rivers
A Million Suns- Beth Revis
Granny Dan- Danielle Steele (a re-read from a long time ago!)

Monday Coffee Talk.

Happy Monday! It's 7:30 and the 3 kids are still asleep here. I've been up for at least an hour since getting my nephew- who thankfully goes right back to bed. I wish I could have, I know I'll be looking for some place comfy to curl up later in the afternoon. I've been doing that a lot lately. 

I'm so happy to be linking up with Jasmine for Monday Coffee Talk today. What better way to start off a new week? So I could be wrong but it looks like we're going to share a few goals for the week and I definitely need this. If only I had a nice cup of coffee to sit down with. Right now I'm completely caffeine free and living off of water. 



one. Cleaning. Lame right? My house has been a disaster for weeks- I just can't seem to get ahead of the mess right now but I have a good feeling that this might be the week where I finally have energy and can stomach the cleaning that needs to be done.

two. Reading. We have a neighborhood/church book club. I've wanted to go but never get around to reading any of the books so with book club just over 2 months away right now I went and picked up their next book. Wonder by R.J. Palacio. I found this in the Children's section at Barnes and Noble, I'm really curious to see what I can get from this book. Have you read it yet?

three. Get some sun! This is the first time in years that I've actually had a tiny bit of tan on my legs. I've been spending tons of time outside this summer so far and am happy to say that it's paying off tan wise. Other than that it's absolutely wonderful watching my girls run around outside. They could live outside if I let them too bad it's starting to get too warm for me to enjoy it too much outside.
