Family Food Around the World

As I was browsing through my Twitter page today I came across a friend who posted this link about family food expenditures around the world. It is amazing how little some families spend per week on their food and what was equally appalling was how unhealthy some families eat. Now I definitely haven't been the portrait of healthy eating lately but I am a firm believer in portion control and a colorful plate. Cheers to healthy eating!

Morning Brew

There is nothing better then indulging in a great cup of coffee on a chilly fall morning.

My absolute favorite is the vanilla latte from Room 39. It is delicious and always looks pretty :)

The little things in life really do make all the difference. Happy Wednesday!

Eat, drink and be scary!

Happy Halloween season!

Every October my aunt makes these fabulous gourd witches... isn't she great?!? The witches get better and better each year!

What are your Halloween traditions?

Fall Home Decor

This past weekend I started decorating my house for fall and I am very pleased with the turn-out!

For starters, the mood at my house was very inspiring...
Pumkin spice candles burning in the living room
Pumpkin chocoloate chip muffins baking in the kitchen
And, fresh sunflowers in vases everywhere

I went to our local hardware store and stocked up on wonderful mums (I like the multi-colored ones), pumpkins (I like to choose the pumpkins with the best looking stems) and lastly, great looking gords (you can never go wrong w/ the odd shapes, colors and sizes)!

Once I got home with all of the goods, I organized the materials on the porch to my liking and added a few wheat stocks for the final touch.

YAY for the Fall!
