Is it actually Fall if you didn’t spend a chilly afternoon at a pumpkin patch picking your favorite ones? This is a tradition a lot of us make sure to check off the list every year. I love browsing through the endless rows looking for the perfect one to take home with me! It really get’s you in the Autumn mood when you grab your group of pals, family members or significant other and spend a day in the pumpkin patch!

Which kind of pumpkin do you usually go for?

Found the most perfect one for carving!

Feelin’ all the Halloween vibes. It’s one of my all time favorite holidays!

Say cheeeeese!

Picked my pumpkins and took some cute pics along the way. Now time to go home, make some hot cocoa and carve them!

Started off the Fall season in the best way we knew how! We took advantage of the beautiful weather and headed off to have lunch in Central Park. It doesn’t get any more picture perfect than this! With all of our favorite snacks present and lots of lemonade, we enjoyed the company of one another! Tons of laughs, polaroids taken, and popcorn fights were had. What better way to spend a cool, crisp afternoon in New York City? I think we all agreed that there truly couldn’t have been a dreamier picnic. It was straight out of a story book! We even had other people stop by to take photos of the beautiful spread!

Time spent with friends is never wasted!

What snacks would you bring to your picnic?

Gotta snap a Polaroid or it didn’t happen. amiright?

Take a look at our spread! Name something prettier. I’ll wait…

These pretzels were HUGE! They were made for sharing. And so are laughs! We encourage you to get outside with your family and friends and enjoy the new season. Happy Fall!

The more we explored, the more we fell in love with this iconic city. You know what they say, “A city so nice, they named it twice!” Have you ever been to New York City? Follow along as we make our way around the Manhattan and Brooklyn and check out all the places we went to!

NOTHING beats a good city view! I mean look at those sparkling lights. Are we dreaming?!

We are living for all the rooftop hangs. Check out this view from the top of the Williamsburg Hotel in Brooklyn! Are you joking? All the heart eyes for this city.

Not to mention all the yummy coffee. Because caffiene breaks are essential, am I right?

What’s your go to drink?

Hanging out down under in the Oculus! This is part of One World Trade Center.

Did you even go to NYC if you didn’t walk across the Brooklyn Bridge?! One of our favorite landmarks we visited!

Any FRIENDS fans out there?! We took a stop to check out the apartment featured in the show. It doesn’t get more iconic than this! Everyone say cheeeese!

Yarn Wall Hanging

August 30, 2017 — by Chelsey Bishoff

IMG_3150-960x1529.jpg

Simple simple and a beautiful accessory for any room! I am all about quick and easy. So, you can image how excited I am to share this DIY with you. Many of you have asked for more DIY wall hangings…so here we go! Most of my wall accessories are handmade. It’s so much fun to personalize your space and even have a few bragging rights when your friends ask where you got something. Don’t forget to check out some previous blogs on here to see even more!

What you will need:

  1. Yarn
  2. Stick
  3. Scissors

First begin by cutting 5 very long strands of string: about 3-4 feet. This will make up one bundle. Once you cut all 5 pieces the same length, fold in half so the ends touch. Put the middle fold under the horizontal stick as you see below. Repeat this step 1ox. You should have 10 bundles of string.

Now, bring up the ends to meet the middle loop at the top. Loop the ends through the fold as seen below. Repeat this step for all the bundles of string.

Here is what the final bundles should look like on the post.

In order to get the final tapered look to this wall hanging, take your scissors and cut down at an angle on both sides with the ending point being the very center. Don’t worry if it’s not perfect, sometimes rugged is better.
