After a summer hiatus, one of my favorite link-ups is back! I love reading through others’ Five on Friday posts – I’ve read, enjoyed, purchased, and found inspiration in what other bloggers share each Friday. If you want in on the fun, join Darci, April, Natasha, and Christina each Friday.
I know I just shared this on Monday, but I cannot get over this motorcycle. I’ve seen all sorts of creative diaper ideas on Pinterest, but never had the guts to try to make one myself as a gift. Now seeing that it can be done in “real life,” I know what I’ll be trying for the next shower I’m invited to! I found a good tutorial here.
Trader Joe’s Pumpkin Macaroons. Oh my word. Deliciousness. And the best part is? They are ready to eat (from the freezer) after just 30-minutes of thawing. The pumpkin flavor is legit.
Homemade applesauce. Nothing comes close to the homemade stuff – am I right!? Craig’s grandma works at an apple orchard each fall, which means we are often gifted with some of the “imperfect” apples they decide not to sell. She dropped a bag with us while she was here for the shower and I was quick to dump them into the crockpot to whip up some applesauce! Following this recipe as a loose guide, we ended up with quite the treat! I’m excited to share the recipe with you all soon! PS. How cute is this orchard she works at!?
Bath & Body Works 3-wick candles are my jam. Our house smells incredible all the time – I no longer have to worry about a home that smells like 2 dogs inhabit it. They’re so awesome, even Craig has taken notice. I managed to drag him into a B&BW a few days ago and we picked up some additional candles to add for our stash. Keep an eye out for their 2/$22 sales and always Google for coupons that you can add on top of that. I ordered a box of them online earlier this fall in order to take advantage of the 2/$22 along with some additional online-only coupons. When they arrived they were all broken. It wasn’t super convenient, but when I took them into the store, they happily exchanged them for new candles. While we love almost all of them, the Warm Carmel Cider might be my favorite this year.
