Carving Pumpkins

Happy Monday!! Every day is happy in October, right?! We are getting all the Fall weather in Atlanta this week & we are looooooving it! Leaves are everywhere, Halloween parties are about to go down & we will not turn Hocus Pocus off until the morning of November 1st. We finally got around to carving our pumpkins this weekend & it was the most fun ever! After all the ewwwws and yuuuuucks, the girls were brave and stuck their hands right down inside the guts & loved every minute. Eloise may have even eaten some.

We ended up with a cat, a pumpkin full of stars, and a happy jack-o-lantern, and mom of the year forgot to get tea lights, so we have to wait just one more night to see them glow! Have you guys carved your pumpkins yet, what’s left on your October bucket list?! xo


Fun Snacks with Bear Naked Custom Granola

This post was sponsored by Bear Naked Custom Granola. I was paid for this post & received Bear Naked Custom Granola as compensation.

We are so excited to share with you guys one of the most fun snacks of all time! We have partnered with Bear Naked Custom Granola to share their new granola, where you not only get to create your own granola blend (think dark chocolate chunks & freeze dried fruit!), but you get to customize the packaging. We added the girls faces to each of their own blends & named them!

The girls had SO much fun putting their faces on the packaging, naturally Harper wanted to add a crown, Eloise a unicorn horn & Claire, some aviators!! Here are the three custom blends we made.

Claire Bear Blend // Honey granola + cinnamon + freeze dried apple slices + praline pecans. Brandon’s favorite by far.

Ellie Bear Blend // Honey granola + almonds + freeze dried bananas + coconut chips. The girls love this one, almonds are their favorite!

Harpie Bear Blend // Chocolate granola + dark chocolate chunks + organic cacao nibs + freeze dried strawberries. I almost ate the entire bag in one weekend.

The granola is so good it is hard to decide if you want to just eat it as a snack or actually put it over yogurt! This would also be such a fun gift, especially for a new mama! Have you guys tried it?! Take a look and tell me what kind you would make, you can use coupon code BEAR51 for 10% off an order!


The Pumpkin Patch

Taking our kids to the pumpkin patch is one of my favorite things of all time. Ok let’s be honest, everything about Fall is my favorite thing of all time. We continue to stop at almost every roadside pumpkin stand we come across because we really just can’t get enough, but we made our official pumpkin patch trip two weeks ago. I came home with way more pumpkins (and less pictures) than I had planned, but the girls were happy & the donuts were good!

How I imagined the pumpkin patch was going to go: girls happily frolicking around, smiling for a family photo, grabbing an apple cider donut or two & picking out one pumpkin each to bring home.

How the pumpkin patch actually goes: spending more time getting dressed & out the door than we actually will at the pumpkin patch. Leaving the house with perfect 72 degrees with overcast, but in the fifteen minutes it takes you to get there, the weather has somehow changed to 94 degrees and blazing sun. One kidΒ complaining she is hot, the other immediately has to go to the bathroom and one is crying because she wants to climb inside the petting zoo to see the baby pig. Everyone else in the state of Georgia is also visiting said pumpkin patch, trying not to lose anyone or let anyone get pecked by the angry chicken that is roaming around. Kids squealing laughing as they smuggle as many pumpkins as they can wheelbarrow but all of the tears when we try to put some back. Somebody mysteriously has a splinter & somebody else lost a boot. Seeing who can lift the biggest pumpkin while simultaneously trying not to rip the stems off them. Attempting not to knock over any glass jars of apple butter on our second trip inside to use the bathroom, snapping a handful of photos where nobody is looking at the camera & arguing the whole way home about who gets to paint which pumpkin what color.

Success y’all. I effing love the pumpkin patch.
