Pumpkin Coffee Cake

Friday, October 31, 2014


For our anniversary weekend, I knew I wanted to make a delicious fall treat for us to snack on with our morning coffee. It didn't take much searching before I realized it needed to have pumpkin, it needed to be fairly simple to make, and it needed to be extra scrumptious! What's an anniversary without some great food to enjoy together?!

I've always loved coffee cake, but I rarely let myself splurge on it. It's usually a treat for vacations or special occasions, but I've never actually had a homemade version until this recipe. I say this about all the recipe's on DLD, but as a coffee cake fanatic, this homemade treat is one of my absolute favorites! Everything about this is amazing. As in... we ate the whole batch and then made a whole new batch the next day amazing. (Insert bug-eyed emoji)

This is the perfect desert to bring to Thanksgiving with family, or Friendsgiving get-togethers this November. I plan on bringing this tasty treat to both! Side note: If you've never had a Friendsgiving, you should definitely give it a try! It's basically a fun way to throw a potluck with great food and close friends. Plus...an extra round of Thanksgiving?? Yes please!!







Looking for even more pumpkin goodness? Don't forget about the Homemade Pumpkin Spice Latte!!

P.S. Are you all as ready for the weekend as I am?! Talk about a long week, I'm excited to recharge my batteries for another busy week ahead!

Hairstyles: Life and Style Linkup

Tuesday, October 21, 2014


Hello lovely ladies! For this week's Life and Style Linkup, we want to see your favorite hairstyles! You've probably noticed I've been on quite the braid kick lately, and this week was no exception. There are countless ways to work a braid into any style, just like Christina did with this side bun and cute mini braid. 

I've been experimenting with the messy fishtail braid, and I love how it looks with a flowy dress like this one from Belle Boutique. The fabric is so beautiful, and how can you not love that gorgeous back detailing?! Perfection!

Roadtrip Checklist

Thursday, October 16, 2014


Chris and I are no strangers to roadtrips. Back when we were dating long-distance, we both made the 16 hour trek from Portland to LA numerous times. LA to Vegas, to San Francisco, to San Diego...it's always been a mix of fun, exhaustion, and countless snacks and games to pass the time.

So how do you make a roadtrip feel more like the vacation, and less like a means to get to a vacation? I've put together a few helpful tips and suggestions to make your next journey on the road EPIC! Or at least help pass the time ;)

Date Night: Life and Style Linkup

Wednesday, October 15, 2014



It's time for the Date Night Linkup! Teaming up with the stylish ladies of Posh Pair to bring you our go-to date night looks. The last few times Chris and I have been out on the town, I've been mixing up some fancy and casual items for a fun twist on date night.

Today I went with this adorable faux leather skirt from the Lauren Conrad LC line at Kohls. If you've never checked it out, she has some great pieces at a very reasonable price. This skirt is on sale for only $35 right now, so don't wait to snatch one up!

Sweater Weather and Fall Boots

Friday, October 10, 2014


It's finally cooled off a little bit (at least after the sun goes down) and I'm loving getting to wear these super cute fold down boots from Belle Boutique. As soon as I saw them, I knew they'd be going to the apple orchard with me sometime soon. I love the plaid detail when you fold down the top, and they are the perfect way to transition some of my summer dresses into Fall. 

Life and Style: Denim

Wednesday, October 8, 2014


Today's linkup with Posh Pair is all about the denim. An all-American classic, it's hard not to love this versatile closet staple. This week I chose to showcase a new pair of boyfriend jeans I snagged from Nordstrom Rack. 


Thank you all for your comments and encouraging words!!
Your support means the world to me, I love hearing from you!
