It's almost that time again!


My favorite time of the year. I wish fall would last 5 months out of the year. Living in Minnesota, there isn't any ideal weather to me except fall!

It's the weather...the smells...the feelings!!

Bring on the

The cozy slippers

The changing leave colors

Cozy blankets

Fires in the fireplace and firepits

Leggings and sweaters

Cute scarfs

Tall boots

Fleece sheets


This week the weather is finally cooling off! Today it's in the 60's...woohoo! I am one happy mama! You can find me enjoying it to the fullest!

What is your favorite thing about the fall?

It's the quality time that counts!

 It's one of my favorite times of the year. Camping for a week with my family. Quality time with my hubby and kiddos. My kids love camping and they love being outdoors. The use their imaginations and play really well together. They are going from sun up till sun down. They love it as much as we do!

They won't be this small for long but I do hope they keep the relationship that they have. 
They are siblings and there are definitely times they act like it, but there are times they are the best of friends too!

 This is time that I hope they will remember as they get older. I can only dream that this tradition will continue far past the time when my kids have their own kids. I loved camping as a kid, playing outside, getting dirty and finding new friends to play with. Not to mention S'mores, cooking over the campfire and choco tacos!

{Get ready for picture overload}

 Hanging out and relaxing!

 Hot wheels cars and ramp kept the boys busy forever.

Spending time with cousins!

Family hikes!

 Looking for snails and skipping rocks

They found a big one!

Doesn't everyone wear their bug catcher around their head?
Complete with toad in tow.

 Tons of bike rides!
  and Burley rides!

Fishing off the dock!

We have one more camping trip of the season and I am bummed to have to store the camper for the winter.

Back to School

This year hit hard as I had one more of my four littles go off on the school bus.
How did she get so old?! She grew up way too fast and I am not sure I was ready for her to get on a bus this morning and head to Kindergarten.

Kenzie - Kindergarten

 Abby - 3rd Grade

Chase - 4th Grade 

3 down...1 to go!

Waiting for the bus

So happy she has her big sister to hold her hand!

Cheesy Bacon Ranch Chicken

Once again, we are rushing from here to there...dropping one kid off at a sport and picking another one up. I love quick and easy dinners and especially ones that my family loves!
This recipe has only 4 ingredients and is super easy!

Chicken breasts (I used tenderloins)
Ranch dressing
Shredded cheese
Bacon - uncooked

 Grease a 9x13 in glass pan. Lay your defrosted chicken breasts in the pan flat. Slice bacon to fit chicken breast and layer on top of ranch. (My family likes crispy bacon, so I cooked the bacon a bit in the microwave first) If you are using raw bacon, I would cover the top of the chicken with the bacon.. Since mine was partially cooked, I just did a strip of bacon on each piece.
Cook in the oven at 400* for 25-35 minutes.

 Take out of the oven and cover the chicken with the shredded cheese. Return to the oven for 5-6 minutes, until melted.
