Happy Friday friends! It's good be back after a brief hiatus... Not going to lie, the first few weeks of school have got the best of me. Getting back to the morning rush, the homework routine and the fall sports schedule is always a bit chaotic, but everyone is doing well, especially my middle guy who is loving life a kindergartner. It's been unseasonably warm in Maine these last few weeks, today was the first day with crisp fall air. I'm actually excited for sweaters, boots and hot apple cider. Here's a few favorites from the week:
Mrs. Meyers Limited Edition Mum Scent
Ok, PSA for the week. The limited edition Mrs. Meyers cleaning supplies in the Mum scent are amazing!! I've been cleaning the counters double-time just to usethe multi-surface spray.
Pumpkin Spelt Muffins
My boys like taking muffins to school for snacks, and I like that I can make a big batch up at the beginning of the week. With that said, with he amount they can consume, I've been working to find healthier recipes. This one from 100 Days of Real Food is one of our go-to's. Note I've made these with spelt flour and whole wheat flour and they are both tasty. I also add some dark chocolate chips and make them up as mini muffins.
In this in-between season, I've been living in what I call everyday sneakers. Ones that are comfy but cute enough to wear with jeans. I'm loving these ones from Adidas, they come is some great colors though I find the gray goes with everything.
With the bustle of the back to school season, I've been relying on Hello Fresh for help with weeknight meals. Every Monday we get 2 meals from the family plan. We've loved almost every meal we've made with Hello Fresh and I appreciate not having to think about our first two meals of the week. New to the family plan, you can now choose from 5 different options each week which is super helpful with 3 little eaters.
This is Us
SO glad it's back. I binged watched the first season of This is Us when I was sick with the flu last Spring and had no clue what I was missing - I can't get enough of the Pearson family. Who else tuned in to Tuesday's season premiere?
Hope everyone has a fun weekend. Ours will include soccer, flag football tournament, the Maine Marathon Relay for me, the Cumberland Fair and hopefully a good dose of fall fun! Thanks as always for stopping by!
