Plus a bonus one too! 

What We're Eating This Week
Lots of food on the grill - burgers and chicken! 
Tonight I'm actually making my ONE POT "Spaghetti and Meatballs"
Any dinner where I do not have to turn the oven on during the summer is a WIN in my book :) 

What I'm Reminiscing About
Lacie starts Kindergarten next week, so I'm reminiscing about this...

Blakely starts Preschool next week, so I'm reminiscing about this...

And they will be in different schools, which really breaks my I'm reminiscing about this:

I could post a million other pictures that are identical to these...but then I may start crying and not be able to finish my post! These two girls are just the very best of friends and when I separate them I feel like I'm separating twins...

What I'm Loving
I'm loving my Erin Condren Life Planner more than ever right now!  With Back to School, Dance classes starting up, and planning some pretty magical vacations....this is my lifeline! 

What We've Been Up To
Lots of Summer Time Fun! Sesame Place, the Beach, Princess Camp, Bible Camp...these girls have had a good summer! 

What I'm Dreading
I was DREADING Lacie's yearly appointment with the allergist, but it's already over!  Thank goodness! 
Bravest Girl in the whole world! 

What I'm Working On
Booking lots of MAGICAL vacations for 2017!  Disney World, Sandals, Beaches and Universal!

Let's Talk Fall

Happy Monday Life is Better in Pink Readers! 

Today I am linking up with Andres from Momfessionals and Erika from A Little Bit of Everything for a #letstalklinkup and today we are talking about...


I have so much love for fall!  As a child, my favorite season was SUMMER....which I am sure is true for like 90% of the kids out there because #summer... but as an adult, FALL has taken over for my favorite season and here's why...

This girl LOVES pumpkin EVERYTHING!  From the Pumpkin Spice Latte at Starbucks, to homemade pumpkin bread and everything in between!  Fall is PUMPKIN SEASON! 

PSL in a Fall Cup!  I hope Starbucks changes their cups for Fall again this year because coffee is just more fun in a festive cup! 

The VERY BEST PUMPKIN CAKE there ever was! 

My favorite thing about fall is SCARVES! It's so easy to take summer pieces and turn them into fall pieces by adding some layers and some scarves!  I'll start out with sheer, light weight scarves and progress to cozy, warmer pieces with the weather! 

It's no secret that in the house we LOVE us some NY Giants Football!  Even the girls aren't quite at the age where they can sit down and watch a whole game, they do enjoy supporting their team through clothes! 

This is a family favorite holiday!  We get right into the spirit of things by getting the girls new Halloween Jammies every year that they start wearing right after Labor Day! 

These were the two sets that I got for each girl for the upcoming fall:

Mommy Mondays: Lacie Jane is FIVE

FIVE.  I have a five year old.  I have a five year old who starts Kindergarten in TWO WEEKS! 


Last Thursday, the day before Lacie turned 5, I had her put on the very same outfit that she wore on her 4th birthday last year!  This is her first and last day as a four year old! 
What a difference a year makes?!?!

No more baby face!  No more fake cheese smile!  And look at how crazy long her hair got this year! 

Friday August 19th Lacie officially turned FIVE at 8:20am!  She has VBS Camp in the morning, but the afternoon was full of CELEBRATION! 

I ordered this shirt from Just Jen, and it looked super cute on Lacie! 

My family came over after Paisley's nap to celebrate!  We ordered Eggplant Pizza from Phil's (Lacie's choice) and had Funfetti Cake with Pink Icing and Pink Sprinkles (also Lacie's choice)! 

I snapped this picture of all three girls while singing "Happy Birthday."  If you didn't already know, could you tell who the birthday girl was just by looking at this picture?  You probably can! 

Lacie also had a ton of presents to open! 

Because I'm always very honest here....this is how Blakely spent most of Lacie's birthday! 

Saturday morning we woke up and heading to Sesame Place bright and early because that is what Lacie wanted!  She even convinced Nana to come with us...and go on water slides! 

Saturday afternoon, we headed to John's parents house to celebrate with them!  The girls played horseshoes, had a BBQ, ate cookies, and of course Lacie got more presents! 

I cannot believe that FIVE years ago she looked like this! 

The days are long (some of them are really really long) but the years are short! 

Happy Fifth Birthday Lacie Jane!
