Fall bucket list

Every fall these kinds of bucket lists start popping up. This one was the cutest and most do-able one I could find. Minus the Hunter boots (I did try on a pair the other day - does that count?) I think the only other ones that aren't going to happen are, "drive to see fall foliage" and "go apple picking." Living in FL those things are just not feasible.

Happy 4 years

The past 4 years have flown by. We've moved across the country and back, 7 moves in total (if you know us we don't continue our leases. Lol.) We've changed jobs quite a bit and Ryan is now in school for his MBA at Rollins.

Here are some pictures from 9/23/11.

3 ingredient pumpkin cookies

I found this recipe on Pinterest and it sounded so simple that even I couldn't mess up. Only 3 ingredients for pumpkin cookies: pumpkin Jif Whip, instant vanilla pudding and one egg and all you have to do is mix it up and cook. I had seen the pumpkin Jif Whip online but never in the store, so when I was in Big Lots and and it was only $1.90 I knew I had to buy it.

I remembered this recipe and made sure I had the other 2 ingredients. I cooked the cookies in the toaster oven at 350 for 15 min then broiled them for 2 at the very end for a nice crisp on top.

This was great because it didn't make too many cookies and we didn't have a dozen left over. I would defiantly recommend this if you like peanut butter cookies with a hint of pumpkin!

Nc trip

Last week I spent 5 days with my cousin in NC. We try and get together a couple times a year. It was nice to get away for a little! Whenever we are together we spend hours and hours shopping, we both love a good deal! It was a cool trip because everywhere we ended up eating wasn't in FL, so I got to try a lot of new places.

Another thing we have in common is monograms. If I could I would put a monogram on everything, I would. We stayed up until 1am making monogram shirts one night :) While I was there I discovered a new brand, Crown & Ivy which is at Belk. It's reminds me to Lilly Pulitzer, but not as flower-y. I'm officially obsessed (there will be another post about that!)

Hobby Lobby with our fall flavored Starbucks

First PSL of the season, check out the name
Downtown Wilmington was cool to drive through at night

Ocean Isle Beach on Labor Day

sRh are my favorite letters

S'mores donut from a mom and pop coffee place. We just have Dunkin Donuts near me :/

I've always wanted to try this place and I just learned there building one near UCF. It was delish!!!

Bar hopping, these old married folks weren't used to it

The front of us got really burnt, the back of us stayed white, it's been rough

New favorite brand at Belk, so freaking cute!!!!!

Pumpkin coffee at Starbucks

BREAKING NEWS: Pumpkin everything is back at Starbucks!!!!!!

I've mentioned this before but, PSL's (pumpkin spice lattes) are expensive, so my favorite way to have a pumpkin drink at Starbucks is ordering an iced coffee with cream and pumpkin. Lattes have espresso in them,  I don't need that much caffeine so I stick with regular iced coffee. 

It's the same price as ordering an iced coffee with a special syrup (what I usually get anyways.) The pumpkin and cream are so delicious together that I think it's better than the PSL. Throughout the season I'll get one or two PSL's, but this iced coffee is my go-to fall drink for sure.... and cheaper!!!

Mixed perfectly 

It has an orange tint
All time favorite fall saying
