Welcome to September! This is honestly one of my favorite months of the year. The change in seasons is right around the corner, there’s a crisp, autumn freshness in the air, and I’m so excited for all the fall things to begin! Who’s with me? What are you looking forward to?
Here’s what’s going on behind-the-scenes in the month of September:
There are some of my favorite recipes for fall! What are you excited about cooking or baking when the weather cools down?

Who’s ready for a wardrobe change? Here are some of my favorites that I’ve been eyeing:
Fall Bucket List
It seems like when fall starts out, I always have so many ideas and things that I want to do with the family. But so often I get too busy and never get around to it! This year, I really want to try to do as many fun fall things as possible, get outside more, and really enjoy the season to the fullest. We don’t get much of it here in Oklahoma, so I really have to plan ahead to make it happen! Check out these bucket lists for fall ideas:

Outdoor Dinner Parties
Yet another thing I always dream of doing in the fall, but never get around to. With the weather cooling off, it’s the perfect time to get together outside! Here’s some of my favorite inspiration:
I have been promising you guys a house update, but it’s been going sooooo slow, haha! However, I finally have an update for you guys: foundation is poured! Here’s a (not so great) photo:
Also, some of the lumber has arrived and we are getting ready for framing. In the meantime, we’ve picked out countertops (well, kind of, I’ve already changed my mind LOL), picked out cabinets, floors, tile, and are getting ready to choose all of our lighting and hardware. Not to mention so many little decisions in between (like what type of toilet paper roll holder we want….I have no idea??)!
Once framing gets going, I’ll be sure to post a full house update on here. But for now, here’s some of my favorite Kitchen Inspiration! 🙂
Behind-the-scenes, it’s been a busy month. Ollie, my 13 month old, is starting mother’s day out next week! I’m so excited to finally have some dedicated work time and to be able to just have some time to myself. It’s been quite a while since I’ve had that! On the flip side, there’s always that nervous mom stuff that comes up when my babies start something new. But I know it will be good!
We’ve also recently discovered that Ollie has some food allergies, specifically to dairy, tree nuts, and eggs. He has an appointment with an allergist soon, but working through that and making sure he gets enough healthy protein and fat in his diet has been a challenge! Thankful for all of the amazing resources there are out there now for feeding babies. It’s been a journey!
Other than that, life has just been crazy busy with the house stuff and kids and work. Cody and I are trying to find more time for ourselves and slip in more date nights, and I’m also personally trying to slow down a bit and take a breath. While my schedule may not change much, there’s always room for improvement in my day to day thinking! Forever working on embracing peace and rest.
That’s it for now. I hope you guys have a great month and let’s be sure to connect either here or on Instagram!
