Friday Favorites - Fall Edition

It may feel like summer, but fall is officially here!  I know it seems like loving fall is so "trendy" these days (hello Pumpkin Spice EVERYthing), but I've genuinely always loved this season.  I remember going to a pumpkin patch when I was very young with my mom and grandma and riding the wagon to the patch, looking at all of the crafts and feeling the excitement of a new season.  Summer is my favorite, but fall is a close second.  The change in seasons is why I will probably never move from this area!

So on to some favorites from this week!  I got to try a few new workouts at a new gym and especially LOVED the "Bounce" class...AKA a trampoline.  I worked out hard this week and am really feeling the results.  BUT...I haven't lost a pound in over a month and I know it's because of what I am eating. More on that next week :)

I love cooking and baking with my kids and this week we made a recipe from one of my favorites sites - Running with Spoons.  Her breads and muffins are AMAZING and much healthier than the typical recipes.  Here we are making Greek Yogurt Apple Oat Bread.  It takes only one bowl and about 5 minutes to throw together.  SO good. 

Do you ever feel helpless as a parent?  Like you have no clue what you are doing?  I have that feeling often and recently it has to do with behavior.  So a friend recommended this book and it's been a favorite this week.  I am implementing the suggestions and starting to see a difference!

These new jammies - and those smiles - may be my most favorite from this week. 

The Target dollar bin got me again.  This time it was these little pumpkins.  And the Pumpkin Apple candle from Bath & Body Works is the perfect intro to fall.  

I've talked about Think Thin bars before as being a favorite, but this seasonal Pumpkin Spice flavor is my most favorite!  

Fall means back to school which means adorable art work!  This was an Aiden creation that now lives on our fridge.  School (and his new teacher) is Aiden's favorite right now!  

This may seem random, but as I was getting ready yesterday I realized my shirt was tucked in.  Why is this a favorite?  Well, first of all this shirt didn't used to fit.  And the jeans are now too big.  And I have NEVER tucked in shirts before.  That's a big win for me!  And it also means it's time to shop for cute belts!

We've fallen into a nice Friday morning routine the past few weeks.  Our gym offers open play time Friday mornings, so we play there after I work out.  This long trampoline is their favorite!

I hope you all have had a good week and have an even better weekend!
