My Farmhouse Front Porch


Alright ya'll, I think first and foremost, it's probably important I tell you I have a major obsession with pumpkins. I cannot get enough of all the unique and beautiful pumpkins that are becoming ever so popular these days. I truly believe you can never have too many (especially the baby white ones)! When it comes to decorating for autumn, you must have pumpkins, and mums of course. And when it comes to decorating with pumpkins, the possibilities are endless.

Let me also clarify that this is technically our back porch because we have a waterfront home. But let's be honest, "my farmhouse back porch" doesn't exactly have the same ring to it. ; ) Alright, enough with the small talk. Here is our porch. I hope you enjoy!

Super Simple Crock-pot Chili


Last weekend we experienced autumn weather for the first time this year. The cool air has been creeping in the past few weeks, but we finally had consistently cool temperatures. The windows were open and the crisp breeze brought a chill to the air just enough to make you reach for a blanket. I knew it was time to break out the crock-pot and whip up my first batch of chili for the season! My bridesmaid and best friend gave me a chili recipe a few years ago and it has not disappointed since. It is my go-to for chili because it is delicious and super simple. I am serious; this is the EASIEST chili recipe you will find! (You don't even have to brown the meat before it hits the crock-pot, folks!) Read on for all the juicy details. Pun intended. : )

Where to Find the Cutest Fall Pillows Under $30

Fall is absolutely my favorite season! Decorating with pumpkins, plaid, pillows, and hay bales brings me so much joy! This year, fun patterns and textures are taking the stage. Plaid seems to be the big ticket. I am loving ticking as well! Both are classic patterns that never go out of style and are functional 365 days a year. Where better to throw some plaid than on a throw pillow? [pun intended] : )

So today I am sharing where to find the cutest fall pillows under $30. For those of you who have made the transition to pillow covers (like myself), don't leave just yet. I'm sharing a few great options for you as well!

DIY Burlap Easter Banner


Sometimes I peruse my favorite stores looking for inspiration. Not intentionally, but it results from seeing something that sparks my interest and not being able to justify buying it for the price. Then, all of a sudden, my brain starts reeling with ideas for DIY projects, like the one I am about to share with you. A few weeks ago, I was strolling through Marshall's (where else?) and I came across this adorable framed Easter burlap print!
