And just like that we’re a few days away from November. Kellen has been gone the last 2 weeks so I’m really looking forward to him coming home today, and being home for a week.
We have a Halloween party to attend on Saturday and no plans on Sunday except football and housework. October ran me ragged so I’m really looking forward to just being home for a day with very little on the agenda.
Here are a few things from the last few weeks.
If you missed my post on 7 ways to get healthier right now, make sure you check it out. I’ve gotten some great feedback and #6 really got people thinking.
EJ in this striped romper. I have a stripe obsession so when I saw this Cat & Jack outfit at Target it was in my cart before I even knew what was happening. I am loving the Cat & Jack line for boys and girls both. And of course I’m loving my happy baby. Always with a smile on his face.
Speaking of happiness, if you haven’t heard of Happiness Boutique you need to check them out. They have some of the cutest jewelry and scarves and I am loving the earrings they sent me. I got the rose gold glitter ball studs and the drop earrings in red wine. Both are beautiful colors and they don’t bother my sensitive ears. Happiness Boutique also has a rewards program and offers free shipping world wide!

No photo (#bloggerfail), but I made the best chicken breasts last night! Kellen usually does the cooking, and when he’s out of town I mainly sustain off sliced veggies, energy bites, Greek yogurt and egg scrambles (and late last night off of about 5 cups of homemade granola while I finished this post). But I was really wanting some chicken for dinner last night. So I decided to slap some seasoning on 2 chicken boobies and my goodness were they good! I think the key was baking the breasts at a higher temperature for a shorter period of time. That helped seal in the moisture so they weren’t dry at all. How did I not know this before!
For the seasoning I used:
Salt, pepper, garlic powder, onion powder and some paprika.
Rub some olive oil on first, sprinkle on the seasoning, then bake at 450 for 20 minutes, flipping half way through.
Seriously, best chicken I’ve had in a while.
We had our family photos taken last weekend and our photographer sent me a little sneak peak and I couldn’t wait to share. Melissa always does the best job.
And I almost forgot the most exciting thing about the week!
Our sleds are on One Kings Lane! They are being featured as part of their splurge-worthy holiday gift guide! Kellen worked so hard on this collaboration and I’m so proud of him. Make sure you check them out.
And that’s all I got for ya today. I hope everyone has a fabulous Halloween weekend!
YAS about the sleds! And the family photo is so freaking adorable <3 Can't believe how quickly both the kids are growing, even A looks like a proper kid. HA.
Get out of here with your One Kings Lane feature!! That is amazing! Congratulations! xo, Biana –BlovedBoston
Your family pictures look like they are going to be so perfect! We opted not to do any this year since I’m preggo, but next year I’m hoping we get some good ones. And congrats on the sled feature! That’s awesome!!!
Yay, on the sled feature! How exciting! Love your family picture too. Everyone looks great! Have a great weekend!
I LOVE your family photo! How sweet are y’all??
Those earrings look so sweet.
Congrats on the sled feature. How awesome is that?
So awesome! Congrats about your sleds. That is amazing
Thanks so much Caroline! It’s really exciting for us.
So cool that Kellen’s sleds were featured! And I can’t wait to see all the pics! We had some taken a few weeks ago! I don’t love them but there are a few we like 🙂 I’m in the process of picking out a Christmas card now.
