Now that it’s fall, all I want to do is bake and eat warm, yummy treats.  And yes, I do that in moderation.  But this recipe right here is so decadent, you’re going to think you’re eating treat.  But it’s totally healthy and you can even modify it to make it however you want.
One of everyone’s favorite thing’s about fall is pumpkin spice.  Now, I’m not normally one of those people, but this is the perfect combo of creamy banana, comforting spices and deliciousness.  So follow my recipe below and enjoy 🙂
All you do is take all of the ingredients below, put them in a jar, mix them up, put it in the fridge overnight and heat it in the microwave for 30 seconds in the next morning.  You could also just add all these ingredients to your normal oatmeal and enjoy in a bowl like the picture above.

My DIY Pumpkin Spice Recipe

Celebrate: My Bridal Shower

Lex-15Be ready for a picture overload.  I apologize in advance for this but I just had to share all of the beautiful pictures from my bridal shower this past Sunday.  My mom threw me the most amazing and perfect shower and it was such a wonderful day.  I was surrounded by all of my friends and family (on my side) and felt so blessed.  To be honest, I couldn’t even believe it was MY shower and that I’m really getting married.  It’s so surreal to me.  Thank you to my mom for making this so special and thank you to everyone who came to celebrate with me.  A special thank you to my amazing friend and photographer, Nicola (click to visit her page) for capturing this incredible day.  Also, an additional thank you to EB Party rentals for the beautiful chiavari chairs that all my guests sat in!  They were the perfect finishing touch.  I couldn’t have dreamed of a better day.  But enjoy all of these pics and stay tuned for a guest post from my momma where she shares her tips for throwing a fabulous bridal shower; because obviously she knows what she’s talking about. Lex-37
