Thanks for the shout out ;). I have been wanting to try that coffee cake ever since I saw it on instagram. Thank you for the reminder! Your lashes look fantastic. A massage? Enjoy! We don’t have a whole lot planned this weekend. Hung in tonight- I made some dinner and Kaylin sang us a pretty rocking version of twinkle twinkle. Tomorrow I”m teaching at the gym then ?? Sunday- family pictures and football

1. I’m making Lindsay’s apple cider cake once I restock my almond meal!
2. I’m making your pumpkin enchilada recipe this weekend
3. I want lashes like yours!
4. I have made those pumpkin rice krispies. I had super high hopes for them, however I was a little disappointed!
5. I really really hope I can go to BLEND this year! Can’t wait to hear where it will be taking place…!!

woohoo blend! and full house is coming back? really? This i gotta see!

I may start stalking susan to give me her number so we can snapchat now

Katie @ Talk Less, Say More November 9, 2013 at 6:41 am

so FREAKING excited for Blend!! SERIOUSLY tho! :)

And as for Full House, my sites shared that and it’s MUST.SEE.TV for us! Granted I think it’s supposed to be mostly around Stephanie and DJ (and I wonder if we won’t ever see the Olsen twins cuz there was no mention of them in the article my sister sent me) BUT I’m excited. i’m also excited for “Girl Meets World” – just sayin!

Lee November 9, 2013 at 7:18 am

I read that the Full House thing is an old April Fools joke that’s been re-circulating for some reason. :(

ok those gingerbread donut holes are happening…and i don’t even bake but gingerbread is my absolute favorite thing!!! i thought i lost it forever when i got the ole celiac dx but !!! thank god for alt flours no? i love those trainers and nordic/winter wonderland-y type stuff. i just hate when it snows buckets and i have to be somewhere instead of playing in it :) i’m on the fence about full house…i mean yay? actually, scratch that, gimme saved by the bell! i’m getting my lash fill on tuesday and i cannot wait! it will be 4wks!! i have like half my lashes left, i feel nekkid.

Allison @ Life's a Bowl November 9, 2013 at 8:42 am

Holy crap, Full House is coming back? That’s my favorite show to watch on Sunday morning since nothing else is on… Throwback! I saw your picture on IG of Blend Retreat and I really wanna go, it would be my first blogger weekend getaway!

kristine November 9, 2013 at 9:53 am

i love the toms! too bad they’re sold out of my size. i’ll check nordstrom today just in case ;)
thanks for the news that full house is coming back! although just yesterday the olsen twins said they’re retiring from acting and just going to do fashion (per the huff post).
lastly, i love your lashes!!!! they look sooooo good!
have a great day and weekend!

Megan November 9, 2013 at 11:24 am

5 Things I need to do today but probably won’t: 1. Mow the lawn 2. Return something at kohl’s 3. Go grocery shopping 4. Study 5. clean out my closet.

Livi November 10, 2013 at 11:06 am

haha I love that last picture! eat eat eat :)

McKenzie November 10, 2013 at 7:33 pm

Loved all the lists!

I saw on Amazon you can get the Full House box set for about $50…and I also saw they are bringing the show back. I must admit, I’m kind of excited.

Suzanne November 10, 2013 at 9:54 pm

The dog is a Great Pyrenees. My family used to raise them. Not in the puppy mill sort of way, just had a male and female as pets and they did what males and females do. Ya know…. Anyway- they are my favorite and super awesome dogs. Our male, Bear, would let the cats sleep on him in the winter so they could be warm (outdoor animals).

LOVE your lashes. I’m thinking I need to do that since I have short lashes.

Jenn P&C November 12, 2013 at 7:49 pm

You’re too cute! Thanks for the link love girly! Gah and omg blend!!!! I long to go one year! I keep missing out!

Trisha November 12, 2013 at 9:41 pm

As it turns out, the five things you need for winter? I also need them, especially that scarf! :)

Heather @ Better With Veggies November 13, 2013 at 1:20 pm

That puppy in your picture is a Great Pyranees boy – we have a girl (Zurie). They are awesome. :)

Ashley@cupcakesncrunches November 13, 2013 at 10:08 pm

I love the holidays – totally with you there! & I love this post – those Rice Krispies look incredible.
&& I can’t wait to hear more about Blend! I had the best time at Blend this year!
