Between re-doing/organizing our apartment to make room for our little babes and decorating for Advent I think Ikea has officially become my second home.
I did it. I bought my big preggo self a nice, roomy winter coat.
Even though there has been a seriously lack of recipe posts on here (I will make up for it, promise), I have been a cooking machine. I can't help myself this time of year. The best foods are to be had in fall. Like this meal I made a few weeks ago...
Maple apple pork chops, with collard greens and cheesy bacon grits. Oh, mamma, was it goooood.
On top of all the awesome food to be had this season, there's the flowers. Gah, aren't fall flowers the loveliest?
Some sparkly pumpkins I made (like a month ago---oops) to make our home a little more festive. Super easy too. Those are just gold push pins. Stick 'em in your choice of pumpkin or squash and call it good.
Saturday morning crepes, made by the husband. What I look forward to all week.
I've officially entered the THIRD TRIMESTER, friends. I can hardly believe it.
But I think my pants sure can. Don't worry I finally bit the bullet and ordered some honest-to-goodness maternity pants.
There's been lots of DIY-ing going on around here too. Again, thanks to our little muffin and Advent/DIY fair time (p.s. my brilliant husband designed the DIY fair logo).
Vintage Tin Candles. Easy + cute = a beautiful thing.
One of the best holiday treats, in my humble opinion. The infamous Muddy Buddies.
More yummy foods to be enjoyed when it's cold outside. Chicken Cacciatore amazingness.
Overall I'd say life as-of-late has been insane and full, but so, so blessed.
