How exciting is it that Fall officially starts on Monday?? Now if only the weather would get that memo we would be in good shape! Denver is in the 90s today and thanks but no thanks! Anyhoo....
I have a super yummy Fall recipe to share with you all today and I found this one in Food and Wine Magazine!
Fall Apple Cheddar Pretzel Dogs!
2 Apples, butter, cinnamon and brown sugar
Hot dogs or brats (I used Bison dogs from Whole Foods)
I think using a Smoked Cheddar or Gouda would also be amazing on this!

Hey guys..... we all made it thru the dreaded Monday didn't we? I swear I barely did......I have been battling a migraine now for the past 24 hours....typical me. But lets push that aside because I want to share with you all 3 things I am LOVING lately! A Book, A Movie and a TV show!!!
A murder… . . . a tragic accident… . . . or just parents behaving badly?
What’s indisputable is that someone is dead. But who did what?
Big Little Lies follows three women, each at a crossroads: Madeline is a force to be reckoned with. She’s funny and biting, passionate, she remembers everything and forgives no one. Her ex-husband and his yogi new wife have moved into her beloved beachside community, and their daughter is in the same kindergarten class as Madeline’s youngest (howis this possible?). And to top it all off, Madeline’s teenage daughter seems to be choosing Madeline’s ex-husband over her. (How. Is. This. Possible?).
Celeste is the kind of beautiful woman who makes the world stop and stare. While she may seem a bit flustered at times, who wouldn’t be, with those rambunctious twin boys? Now that the boys are starting school, Celeste and her husband look set to become the king and queen of the school parent body. But royalty often comes at a price, and Celeste is grappling with how much more she is willing to pay. New to town, single mom Jane is so young that another mother mistakes her for the nanny. Jane is sad beyond her years and harbors secret doubts about her son. But why? While Madeline and Celeste soon take Jane under their wing, none of them realizes how the arrival of Jane and her inscrutable little boy will affect them all.
Big Little Lies is a brilliant take on ex-husbands and second wives, mothers and daughters, schoolyard scandal, and the dangerous little lies we tell ourselves just to survive.
Would you like to know how I have spent the last the past 85 hours of my life????? On my couch with Charlie Hunnam and the Sons. I will have to brag that even though this is kinda depressing I watched all 85 episodes to catch up to the final season last week in a little over 3 weeks. To say I loved this show is an understatement. And yes, I started it because I have a HUGE crush on Charlie Hunnam but I fell in love with the show and everyone in it. I am so sad that I fall in love and the final season started last week, typical! You guys..... I would never have thought I would love a show about a biker gang but boy do I ever! If you need a new netflix watch here it is! And ya, let me know when you are gaga for Jax!!!!!!

Today's post isn't too exciting but the last stop on the casa tour is our re-done guest room. I don't even have a picture of the before because it was 1/2 storage and 1/2 room! But the after is great! We moved everything that was in our Master for the last 7+ years into the guest room.
Happy Monday Friends!

This was our eat-in kitchen when we first moved in, we didn't hang anything on the walls and I just worked with what we unpacked first. I have to tell you that this table was my first single purchase, my Mom and I picked this out when I was 22 for my apartment and it has been the focal point of meals for 11 years. But all good things come to an end.
Can you all spot Oscar lurking in the shadows??
Thanks for taking a tour of my home.....I have a few more rooms left that I will show next week!

After Matt's family was here over the 4th of July both Matt and I realized that our guest situation wasn't working and we needed to do some changes to our little abode. This was the loft before...I love this big desk but the bigger the desk the more junk I pile on it....don't we all? This loft was just a space that was a catch all and we blew up a air mattress for a 2nd guest bed right here in the middle......not very homey.......

I saw a few articles written on this documentary over the Summer which peaked my interest and today it finally came out OnDemand! This was a very eye-opening and intriguing look at the way we eat....specifically the amount of sugar we consume. A in depth look into America's food crisis does make you think what world would/could our children as a society be raised in. Ya know? The odds are stacked against us but watching this, educating yourself is the first step to knowing better and doing better!
Take a look and then watch it for yourself!
