HELLO Monday..................

Another Monday has rolled around and it seems that last week just sailed right past me.  It was a busy, busy week with lots of house decisions and company and making memories.  Thought it would be nice to share some of the fun and memories with you during my HELLO Monday post.


 HELLO Pumpkin Pound Cake......In preparing for company last week I wanted to make something "pumpkiny" but not a pie or bread.  I figured that there was some kind of pumpkin cake recipe online and I was exactly right.  And, what better than a Pumpkin Pound Cake.  Our whole family loves pumpkin and this did not disappoint.  It has allspice, ginger, nutmeg and cinnamon and pecans, so what's not to like with those wonderful ingredients!  There is also a glaze but I opted not to use the glaze and instead used whipped cream.  If you want the recipe you can click right here and I bet you will be glad you did.

HELLO Birthday Girl......... this past Tuesday was Hanna Beth's 5th birthday and she ended up having a week of birthday celebrations. Tuesday, she celebrated with her school friends, Friday night we celebrated here and she shared the celebration with her Dad, whose birthday was 4 days earlier than hers.  Then on Saturday she celebrated with her friends at a pony farm.  The kids birthday parties and cakes are so extraordinary these days.  The sky is the limit when it comes to ideas for both and of course, the invitations match and are too cute!  I'm pretty sure our Princess felt very celebrated!

 HELLO Stitch Fix......I received my first ever Stitch Fix this past Wednesday.  I had it delivered to Hubby's office, so I opened it there with his office gals so they could see what had been chosen for me.  First, I will say, Stitch Fix, does it right!  The packaging is to perfection and my stylist did an absolutely amazing job picking out items for me.  If you are not familiar with SF then you might enjoy checking them out by clicking here.  When you sign up you fill out a profile that lets them know your sizes, and your likes and dislikes when it comes to your clothing. There is a $20 styling fee that is deducted from your total if you buy any of the 5 items.  If you buy all 5 items then you get a 25% discount off the total.  While I really did like all the items and only one did not fit, I did not keep any of my "fix."  I do intend to order another fix later when my mind is not consumed with "all things house" and a busy, busy schedule.  You have 3 days to decide on the items and return them in the postage paid envelope that is enclosed with your order.  As I said, I was more than impressed and would highly recommend the service. It is truly a neat concept and especially for women who would rather not shop.

 HELLO Batman and Batwoman......Is this cute or what?  Clancy attended the Fall Festival at his school this past Saturday evening and shortly after arriving saw that one of his little "friend girls" had dressed as Batwoman.  Bridget snapped this picture and sent it to me and of course, it made me smile from ear to ear.  Just so cute!

  8. I love all things pumpkin so I will check out that recipe. I've heard of Stitch Fix and wondered if what they pick for you is really on target. Glad to read your feedback. And Clancy looks adorable as Batman. At our school, they do celebrate Halloween but the little ones dress up as princesses and the boys superheroes. I'm sure there will be many Elsa and Anna's from Frozen this year.

    I just wanted to thank you for your thoughtful comments on Heart Choices. I really appreciate you.

    Blessings and love,
    Debbie

  9. Big Happy Birthday to your sweet granddaughter, Lea! I have never heard of Stitch Fix before. However, being that I don't like to shop for clothes for myself, I've had to look into it!
