Time to get more of my Fall on...

It is time for some white lights and Thanksgiving banners here in the Keefe home. I am thinking those will be going up this week. :)

Here are a few other things I will be working on:

You remember those drawer pulls that I have been hunting for like forever for the master bedroom?!
I think I may give this a try. Might start with a cute ribbon...

Slacking a little with my pumpkin carving but thought these were ubber cute.
Time to get the drill out!

My daughter is OBSESSED with collecting sticks lately and I am thinking I may put them to good use for this cute craft!

Any cute fall decor going on in your house!?

Fall Inspirations...

I do apologize for my posts being totally sporadic and random in theme. I am working on getting my grove back.
Nothing like a little more fall inspirations to assist.
While I do not like being cold I do like being cozy. Red wine, jeans, sweaters and candles cozy.
What are some of your favorite fall things?

Home sweet home.

I thought I would post a few cute ideas I have found for the home this week.

This here; brilliant. Painted cookie sheets to hang stuff on! Again, my stainless appliances have ROBBED me of my love for a picture cluttered fridge. This seems like a nice runner up!

I just think this sign would be so cute somewhere as a nice reminder.
I dig this. Good thing I have a head start on the looking stupid part. ;)

These are fabric covered shoe box tops. I do not know about you but I am always on the hunt for the perfect "pictures" to hang on my wall. I do however always have tons of adorable fabric swatches that could easily go on over shoe box tops (those are never in short supply in this house)!

What is for din din for tonight:

I feel like I have been in a serious dinner rut for what feels like a year now.
I have been digging in my Colorado cookbook for the last week and found another goodie. 
Chinese Chicken Salad.
I have not been eating very well for like the last four days and its time to get back on the wagon.
Nothing like a great salad.

It is such a Monday and I feel that this was meant just for me today.
Luckily I have a God that knows what I need and only requires that I come to Him...He will take care of the rest...
Thank you Lord.

Its just been one of those weeks when I needed a little "pickmeup";
I little "I am woman hear me roar", basically a little inspiration.
I am dragging a bit.
I am thinking this is a good enough one:

What I wantED today...

I have been on the hunt for a little something fun to wear to my dear, dear friend Tina's wedding.
I just found this lil thang today; and I bought it.
How fun with some gold earrings and maybe a long necklace?!

BTW Honestly Tina & Jason, I could not be happier not only to attend your beautiful wedding next Saturday but that you two beautiful souls found each other. I love you both so much and cannot wait to celebrate the beginning of your forever with you...oxox

For the home...The time out edition.

Lilly has always responded really well to her time outs. 
(P.S. I never thought I would be a user of the time outs...another discussion for another time...)
Her time out place has always been her crib. We remove all the fun cozy stuff and she sits in there for a few minutes. She HATES it.
The looming transition to a toddler bed, which she will be able to escape has presented us with the dilemma of where her new time out spot is going to be. Until now:

You can buy these adorable little gems(time out stools) at Wisteria.
As you can guess I am getting the white one, shocking I know.

Oldie but goodie...

When I lived in Colorado many moons ago I bought this awesome cookbook from the local coffee company. It is called "Best of the Best from Colorado"
Tonight, one of my favorite recipes from the book; Chicken and Bean Enchiladas

3 cups plain yogurt
1 cup shredded chicken
1 (4oz) can chopped green chilies (I like the hot ones)
2 cups refried beans (I like the vegetarian beans)
1 (8oz) can tomato sauce
1 teaspoon chili powder
dash (or 2 or 3) red pepper flakes
1 package corn tortillas
1 1/2 cups graded sharp cheddar cheese

Spread 1/2 cup yogurt into baking dish. Mix 1/2 cup yogurt, shredded chicken, drained green chilies, red pepper, beans, tomato sauce, and chili powder. Spread each tortilla with a dollop of mixture, roll and place face down in baking dish. Top with remaining yogurt and cheese. Bake at 400 for 20 minutes until cheese is melted.
** I like to warm my corn tortillas just prior to the dollop phase of the recipe. This prevents tortilla crumble-age. I hate it when that happens!
** Goes pretty excellent with Skinny Girl Margaritas (just saying...)

What I am wanting today.

Lilly & I are meeting some friends this morning for a lil apple and pumpkin pick'en.
I am thinking nothing would be more perfect to get me to the pumpkin patch than a little pumpkin coffee.
What do you think?
