Apple Dump Cake… YUMM

In my house we are always craving a little something sweet.. not great for our waistlines so we try to only indulge every once in a while. A classic for fall is apple pie but if you want to take the super easy, super tasty route try an apple dump cake! I did get this recipe from Never Ending Journeys so all credit goes to her!

Here is the recipe: Screen Shot 2017-09-28 at 10.02.52 AMGuys it is sooo good and so quick and easy!! Great for if you need something easy for a gathering or pot luck!

It’s BLOGTOBER!!

Screen Shot 2017-09-28 at 9.41.34 AMI really want to put my best effort in to doing Blogtober for the first time. With the help of some fabulous twitter friends I have some great Ideas for what to right about! So if you are new to blogtober, like me, let me introduce you. I will be writing some of my normal posts like monthly goals and a few reviews but I will also post some fall outfits, makeup looks, decor, recipes, and of course Halloween looks!

Writing a post everyday in October is going to take quite a bit of work but I think it will be so fun. Who doesn’t love fall?? It seems like people go crazy when it finally hits autumn. Even though it is still 90 degrees here where I live I want to be full on in the spirit of fall! I hope you enjoy and hopefully this will be a great success!

Talk super soon friends!

Let me know what fun fall things you’ll be doing or I should write about!

August Reflection

August is almost over and I have to say it has been a great month. I have really tried to commit to my goals for the month. I feel better mentally and physically. I have really worked on not letting thing bother me and I have committed to eating better and drinking lots of water. I have lost collectively 7lbs! Not all this month but I am proud of myself.

This month I started my final class in my Masters program and I am so excited to graduate, though I can’t say I’m not a little nervous for what the future of my career holds. I’m taking a break from homework and packing at the moment to write this reflection. This month we had a lot of visitors, events and now we are about to hit the beach again for the weekend to stay with friends. I wish packing was a possible career because I absolutely love it! I make a list for every trip and double check everything!

I think we should all make a monthly goal and try to accomplish it. I’m not only talking about followers or things like that, those are given. But things like being happier, being more organized, etc… What will your goals be for September? I have to think about mine for a bit but rest assured they will be posted soon!

Okay I will stop rambling. Be here Friday for my August Favorites!

New Family Member!

Alright if you follow me on twitter or instagram you would have already seen this new member. We got a kitten!!!! We were worried about introducing a new animal to Baby K because you never really know what kind of personality you will get with an animal. I had a pet rabbit for the past few year and after we brought the baby home he started acting out because of jealousy. It truly broke my heart to get rid of him but he went to a great home and gets all the love he can handle now. Anyways we have waited 6-7 months before getting a new pet. It has been raining non stop for days here in Alabama the last week or two so we have been stuck in the house. My husband is always bringing up getting a kitten and so we are always looking on line for people getting rid of them. I never really thought we were going to get one so soon but my husband out of no where said “Let’s go to the shelter tomorrow and look.” I of course got super excited because I love cats! It didn’t rain at all saturday and so we went to the shelter to take a look. I let Baby K pet the kittens and one let him attempt without any hesitation, he is a little rough with animals. Then she got up and climbed in my arms with Baby K. It was so cute. I knew she was the kitten for us. We adopted her instantly and went to the pet store to get her lots of goodies.

He have been trying to show Baby K how to be a little more gently with her but we really couldn’t have gotten more lucky. This kitten is so loving and puts up with all of us. She always wants to be snuggled up with any of us. I would suggest to anyone introducing baby to pets or vice versa is to always be supervising. A lot of pets are not as kind to take the loving abuse of babies or kids and may snap back. Anyways I love this little kitten so much! She is too precious and a perfect addition to our family!IMG_1566Also I would suggest to everyone looking for a new friend to adopt don’t shop!! The humane society is not a super sad place like some people think! So donate money or items if you can or even volunteer! June is national adopt a cat month!
