This week's featured blogger is Lisa from Coast to Coast. Lisa is an East Coast girl living in a West Coast world. She loves all things Southern and Sweet. She also loves to make people laugh.

This has been a pretty good week. Raylan and I are getting excited for Halloween. I love the age that he is right now because he is old enough to understand the Holidays and can enjoy them with me. Let's recap my favorites.

Classic Fall Colors


Have I mentioned just how much I love Fall? I really love Fall! One of my favorite things about Fall is all of the adorable fashion trends. I love getting to wear Military Blouses, leggings, boots and so many other warm and cozy pieces like this Classic Fall look.

Caramel Pumpkin Bread


If you know me at all, then you know that I love all things pumpkin flavored. In all honesty, pumpkin is probably my favorite. I love the Fall and getting to make all of my favorite pumpkin things, including pumpkin bread. This year I decided to switch things up a bit with my pumpkin bread recipe and make Caramel Pumpkin Bread.

This week has been more than rocky! Classes started back and I already miss Fall Break! Say a prayer that I do well in all of my classes. A friend from school and his father were in a terrible car wreck in which they both tragically lost their lives. Please say a prayer for their family and all of their friends. One of Raylan's dogs also got killed, so needless to say this week has been so rough! Let's rewind to the positive, happy moments.

Free Halloween Bingo Printables



This is my favorite time of  the year! I love all of the fun activities that you can do to help celebrate the upcoming holidays. Now that I have a son of my own, I am always trying to find new and creative ways to celebrate the Holidays. With that being said, I have created two Halloween Bingo Printables for you to enjoy with your children or with friends and family.

Leopard and Stripes



Let's be honest! I have never cared for stripes before. I have always found them to be less than flattering for my body type. This is the first year that I have actually wanted to wear them, so I'm stepping out of my comfort zone. I always see these striped shirts styled so beautifully, so I wanted to give it a try for myself.

This week's featured blogger is Shelby from Life as The Coats. Shelby is a servant of God and wife who is earning her Bachelor's Degree in Organizational Leadership. Shelby is very crafty. She posts a lot of DIY projects and recipes. I'm loving her current post of Christmas Binder Free Printables. It even includes a Holiday Baking List and a Menu Planner. I will certainly make great use out of these. Please stop by and say hello to Shelby. You will love her blog.

This week has been one long rough week. Raylan has Strep Throat and I have had Finals all week. Need I say more!!! So with that being said, I'm sure thankful it's Friday. I'm exhausted! Let's recap some of my favorites...

1) Last weekend was pretty nice. We had a family day. Family time is always the best time. We went to the Mall and out to eat. Raylan really enjoyed the rides at the mall, especially the train rides. 



2) You probably get tired of seeing the things I bake, but baking is what I love to do. With that being said, this Storm Trooper Cake is my favorite from this week.


3) This cooler weather has me pinning away on Pinterest. I love all things Fall and Holidays. I've  also been looking for some delicious recipes for the cooler weather. Do you have any recipes that you would like to share with me?

4) I'm loving this leaf photo I took. I just love the vibrant beautiful colors of Fall...I love Fall most of all!


5) Tif  and Becky hosted a LipSense party this week and I placed my first ever order. I can't wait to receive it. I'm excited to actually be getting a long lasting lip color that won't smear. Have you all tried LipSense?


Well that's a wrap for me. I hope you all have a great and relaxing weekend.  Thanks for linking up! God Bless You!

Makeup Samples

I received makeup samples free from So Choix in exchange for my review, but the opinions are all my own.


Some of the makeup that I'm wearing is from a fun company called So Choix (pronounced shwaaaa).  So Choix is the perfect place that allows beauty lovers to try high-end makeup, perfumes, and nail polishes, without ever having to go into a makeup store.
