I am so willing in the Fall weather. I feel like if I start wearing my boots and scarves, baking and decorating for fall, maybe the weather will take a hint and cool down. And I think it's working guys. I nearly jumped and down last night when the weather man said the words "cool front". Which means 50's at night and 80's during the day. But you know what y'all? I'll take it. I will. take. it.

My trusty 3 yr old assistant and I decided to try out a couple of new {to us} recipes this week. They are really easy and fast. They have to be fast because my other 10 month old assistant is usually at my feet begging to be picked up.

These peanut butter bites took about 10 minutes to make. And about the same amount of time to disappear. I'm not naming names but a certain husband may have eaten the majority of these. And by eat I mean inhaled. They were so easy and good we will definitely be making them often.
I had some super ripe bananas to use up so we made this banana bread. I prefer my banana bread with walnuts but B doesn't. So this recipe doesn't include them. 

I also wanted to "fall" up my burlap wreath so I added some fall fabric rosettes in a cluster on top of the burlap rosettes by just using a straight pin. That way when fall is over I can just take them off. I also changed the hanging sash for a fun coordinating green one.

This is what it typically looks like:

And here is how it is all "Falled" up


What about you? Have you baked anything yummy or made anything?
My nieces birthday party is this weekend so the kids get to wear their costumes. I'm off to make a tutu for a certain little lady bug.

Happy Fall and Happy Weekend!
