Pumpkin Spice Cookies

It seems that I have been obsessed with Pumpkin Spice everything this week... This is a recipe I have been playing with in my head, that I finally had the opportunity to execute yesterday, and they were a success! These cookies taste just like bite sized pumpkin pies. Perfect for an autumn treat, or a snack with coffee or tea. 

Pumpkin Spice Cookies


1 Cup Whole Wheat Flour

1 Cup Quick Oats

1/2 tsp Baking Soda

1/3 Cup Brown Sugar

1/2 Cup Sugar

1 Tbsp Pumpkin Spice

1 tsp Vanilla

2 Tbsp Coconut Oil

1 1/2 Cup Canned Pumpkin

2 Tbsp Flax Seed

1/2 Cup Dried Currants


In a large bowl, mix together Flour, Oats, Baking Soda, Sugars, Flax, and Pumpkin Spice.

Add Pumpkin, Vanilla and Oil and mix until well blended. 

Stir in the dried currants. 

Roll dough into small balls (about 1 Tbsp of dough each)

Place on non-stick baking sheet and push down with the flat-side of a fork (so as to make a cross hatch pattern on the dough)

Bake at 350' for 10 minutes (or until bottom of cookies are golden brown)

Some of you will start reading this post and think 'yeah, yeah, I've heard it all before.'  but I encourage you to really read through what I have to say. Maybe I am just another person telling you about the perils of technology, but I learned a lot today, and even had a couple "ah-ha!" moments, and I really think a lot of people could benefit from this too. 
As much as I hate to admit it, I am on my phone way too much. To the point that if I leave a room without my phone, I nearly feel like I am missing an appendage. I know I am not alone, in fact, I am willing to bet that the majority of the population under 30 feels the same way. I truly believe that our cell phones have become an addiction to some of us. So often I find myself in the middle of doing something, and then because I get a message notification on my phone, I open it up and then get sucked in to checking all of my other apps and social media accounts while I'm at it. I even bring my phone with …

DIY Monster Spray

After spending the day fighting off monsters, I promised my toddler that I would spray her bedroom with Monster Repellent Spray. I'm sure you could find some in the store if you looked hard enough (maybe the pest control isle, but most likely the kids/toddler section), but being the crafting, essential oil loving mom that I am, I opted to make my own Monster Spray.

 If you want to make your own Monster Spray, here is what you need:
Empty Spray Bottle Card Stock Googly Eyes Alphabet Stickers Hot Glue Gun  Lavender Essential Oil Water
Cut the card stock to make labels for the front and back of the spray bottle. (You may want to write your directions on the card stock before gluing it onto the bottle).
Glue the cardstock onto the bottle.
Add Alphabet Stickers on the front to spell out 'Monster Spray' or 'Monster Repellent' (Or whatever it is you want to call your spray)
Add googly eyes & get creative!
Fill the bottle with water, and add a couple drops of Lavender…

Thrifty Home Decorating

I have a hard time spending money on home décor. My husband might disagree with this statement (care to weigh in, babe?), but when I'm standing in a store looking at decorations or small things for the home, unless it is a steal of a deal, my first thought is often 'I bet I can make that'.  I love dollar stores, thrift stores, and online buy and sells. I didn't realize how much I love these thrifty ways of decorating my house, until I started itemizing all of the things that I have refurbished, made on my own, or bought at a thrift shop or dollar store. The list is actually pretty long, relative to everything we have in our house. 

Our kitchen has pretty much been 100% decorated in dollar store décor. We have a couple chalkboards, a cork board, a clock, and some small galvanized buckets that hang on the wall for growing our fresh herbs. We also have a tension rod above our sink to hang the garlic and bananas out of the way. The wooden box hanging next to the sink, was…
