Good Night, Little Pumpkin {Review & Giveaway}

In this fun little book, we meet Milo! He's dressed as the families little pumpkin, and doesn't want the night at the festival to end. He plays games, creates art, and follows his sister into a hay maze. The story itself is simple, but enjoyable for younger readers.

I really loved the colorful artwork, and scalloped edges of the book. Also, it's a board book which is perfect for my growing collection for baby Evie.

Falling for Autumn

I made my fall wreath for the front door this year. It was such a simple and low budget project! Just wrap a foam wreath with burlap ribbon, secure with hot glue, and add your favorite flowers! Now that the wreath is hung, fall candles are burning, and my monogram pumpkins are out...I'm ready for the happiest season of all. ;) Bring on the hoodies, boots, scarves, pumpkin spice latte's, thick books, watching "fall" themed movies, warm pies out of the oven and rainy weekends!!

What's your favorite thing about this time of year?

Book Love: Blessed are the Peacemakers

I grew up reading the Berenstain Bears as a kid, and plan on collecting these sweet books for Evie to read some day. So, I was thrilled to see that a copy of "Blessed are the Peacemakers" was up for review via Book Look!

This little softcover book shares the story of Brother and Sister as they discover that not everyone gets along at school. They recite scripture and find ways to encourage their friends to all get along. It's a sweet story, but a bit on the detailed side of things. I would recommend it for older elementary aged kids. The little gal that I read it too (pre-K age) had a hard time following along.

Regardless, it's a great story, and had a good ending. Many thanks to Book Sneeze for my free copy in exchange for my honest review. All opinions are my own.

Evelynn's Three Month Update!

This last month has been so much fun watching baby girl grow! She's so much more aware of things, and connecting with those around her.
  • She loves to coo and "chat" with you. She's also recently figured out how to squeal. 
  • Still a big eater, and has continued to sleep through the night. However, she doesn't like naps!
  • She rolled over from front to back, and has been busy trying to sit up. It's pretty cute watching her. She's determined to pull herself up into a sitting position.  
  • She likes to watch Baby Einstein, and loves to sit next to me in her her baby chair while I work. And she's learning to reach out and grab toys.
Time is just flying. I'm learning enjoy each day and milestone as they come. (=

Book Love: A Table By The Window

Goodness, it has been a while since I've read a book that really captured my attention. Let me just say that, "A Table by the Window", blew my expectations out of the water.

Sometimes, Christian Fiction seems a bit stale to me.  Hillary Manton Lodge restored my faith in this particular genre. It's a well-crafted story line with fantastic characters that came to life, and gave me little glimpse inside the world of restaurant business.

You'll follow Juliette as she discovers an old family secret, juggles two careers, falls in love, and creates mouthwatering dishes. The best part? The book is chock full of fun recipes. I cannot wait to make the chocolate cake recipe!

Refreshing, fun, and all around lovely tale that satisfied my book lover soul. Many thank to Blogging for Books for my free copy in exchange for an honest review. All opinions are my own.
