Lavazza Frappe

It's Halloween! And I'm super pumped. I'm also needing a little pick-me-up to deal with the whole night. You know, getting the costumes on, going from (stranger's) door to door in the cold, and then the habitual meltdown of my child after I tell her she only gets to eat a few pieces of candy. Sorry, kid, diabetes is a real thing.

The pick-me-up I'm talking about is a homemade frappe. I've made these things a ton of different ways. This time I decided to try the Pioneer Woman's frappe. I tweeked the recipe, of course, and used Lavazza's Perfetto Espresso Roast coffee, and used a decent dash of Monin caramel syrup.

Addison's Wonderland

To shake off the Monday blues, I thought I'd share one of the new blogs that I adore, Addison's Wonderland


Brittany, the mastermind behind Addison's Wonderland, started off as an interior decorator, and now she's a full fledged designer. She creates the most magical bedding for little girl's rooms. The colors and patterns that she puts together are so whimsical and feminine. I swoon each time I see her work.

Brittany is currently on a hiatus from designing bedding (sad face) and is now focusing on her new blog (yay!). She shares amazing photos of her house, genius decorating tips, and items she is currently loving. You will have to check out her eye candy as soon as you get a chance!


For even more dreamy photos, be sure to check out Addison's Wonderland on Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram!

Pumpkin Cheese Ball Revisited


Last year I made a delish cheese ball that was perfect for Halloween. It would also be perfect for the Thanksgiving's Day get together!

I hope everyone had an amazing weekend! Cheers to Monday!

Rainy Days


The last photo of Adrienne holding her beloved Little Lamb will forever be one of my absolute favorite photos I've taken. It epitomizes Adrienne's childhood. And I'll never get sick of seeing her tote Little Lamb around.

Little Lamb is most of the time more gray than white and kind of on the mangier side. One can definitely see that Adrienne's love is squeezed deeply into this lamb's stuffing. Little Lamb is part of our little family, and I keep up with her like she's another child of mine.

There will never be a better sidekick to my child then this stuffed animal.

Glitter Spiderwebs

We have super bad weather coming our way and my head is pounding, so I'm stopping in really quick to share a great Halloween DIY. Adrienne and I made these glitter spiderwebs few years ago. It's a great craft for younger kids (and big kids, like me).

Ole Miss

A few weeks ago we went to our college's first home game. It was jam-packed with fun. We had William's little bro in town, plus our two good friends. It was a jam-packed house as well. Our school is ranked number 3 in the nation right now! Super proud of Ole Miss. #hottytoddy

Here are the photos of the day. From hanging in the Grove to watching the game, front row, it was pretty amazing.
