Fall is by far my favorite time of year! This past week I started adding some fall decor throughout our home. One of my favorite places to switch out the seasonal decor is our fireplace and mantle as it is the focal point of our family room. (You can see my post on how we whitewashed our fireplace here). I am in love with the way my mantle decor came out featuring this  easy DIY fall garland. It was super inexpensive to make too as most of the things can be found at the Dollar Store.

Below I’m sharing my DIY fall garland and mantle decor so that you can

recreate the look too!

DIY fall garland

You will need:

Directions:

  1. Thread the twine through the eye of your needle and tie a knot at the end.
  2. Using your needle, puncture a hole through the leaf and thread the twine through. Next do the same with your foam pumpkins and acorns. You will need to exert a decent amount of pressure to thread the needle completely though the foam pumpkins and acorns.
  3. Continue with whatever pattern you choose.
  4. Once finished, cut the needle off the twine and tie each end.
  5. Hang on your mantle, windows, doorways, or wherever you’d like.

Mantle decor

I chose to go with more of a fall/harvest theme with pumpkins, leaves and flowers vs Halloween since I can keep it up throughout Thanksgiving but you can do whatever you like. And most of my mantle decor was $30 or less!

The farmhouse window panes and boxwood wreath stay up all year long and then I usually just switch out the other pieces as the seasons change.

I got the glass vases and faux flowers from the Dollar Store.

I love these black tapered candlesticks which you can leave up throughout

most of fall and winter.

Old Navy Fall Try on

This post contains affiliate links meaning I make a small commission.

I recently popped into Old Navy to do a little fall try on session for you all.  They had some great basics for layering for this season.

Here are some of my favorites from my Old Navy fall try on.

You can shop the links by clicking the thumbnails below.

Outfit 1

First up, I tried a pair of their wide leg jeans. I like that these are a high waist to tuck in that mom pooch. I would definitely wear these with a heeled boot or wedges to give some height.

Outfit 2

I paired my basic jeans and top with this utility jacket. I love that it has a cinched waist for a more fitted look.

Outfit 3

This corduroy skirt would be super cute with some brown tights or leggings underneath and a chunky scarf as the weather gets chillier.

Outfit 4

So you all know my love for pantsuits runs deep and so obviously this one had to come home with me. It was on sale leftover from the summer for $16 in store. I paired it with a burnt orange cardigan for a fall look. I think it would look super cute with a white jacket or cardigan for spring/summer as well.

(As I sit here putting this together I realize I may be obsessed with burnt orange)

Outfit 5

I fell in love with these distressed boyfriend jeans! I loved them so much, I went home and bought them online for $24.99. (They came to $45 in store).

Paired with a graphic tee and cardigan it’s a cute casual look.

How to make pumpkin cold foam coffee

Pumpkin cold foam coffee

This post contains affiliate links

If you are addicted to pumpkin cold foam coffees from Starbucks then this post is for you! I’m sharing my recipe to make your own at home so you can skip the lines. Scroll down to learn how to make pumpkin cold foam coffee.

Pumpkin cold foam

If you’re not familiar with it, basically pumpkin cold foam is a foamy creamy topping bursting with pumpkin and fall flavors on top of your iced or cold brew coffee. It quickly became my addiction last fall and I set out on a way to learn how to make it at home.

How to make pumpkin cold foam coffee

Ingredients

  • 1/3 cup heavy cream
  • 1 1/2 Tbsp pumpkin puree
  • 1 tsp of vanilla extract or a shot of Torani french vanilla syrup (I like to use vanilla extract if you don’t like it as sweet)
  • 1/2 tsp pumpkin pie spice
  • dash of salt
  • cold coffee

Directions

In a small bowl or glass, combine all the ingredients above except the coffee.

Pumpkin cold foam coffee

Using a milk frother or an immersion blender, whip all ingredients until it thickens.

Fill a separate glass with ice and pour your coffee.

Top with your pumpkin cold foam and enjoy!!!!

Greek turkey meatball bowls

Greek turkey meatball bowls

This is such a satisfying and refreshing meal! These Greek turkey meatballs are so delicious and no one will ever guess that there’s zucchini snuck in.  Serve over some roasted vegetables, with tzatziki and feta. Scroll down for my Greek turkey meatball bowl recipe. And be sure to check out my other healthy recipes at the end, including my chocolate zucchini brownies 😉

Greek turkey meatball bowls

Ingredients:

For the meatballs

  • 2 packages of ground turkey
  • 1/2 chopped onion
  • 1 egg
  • 1 cup chopped zucchini
  • 1 cup bread crumbs
  • 1/2 tbsp chopped dill
  • 1 Tbsp oregano
  • 1 tsp garlic powder

For the bowls

  • 1 cup small baby potatoes chopped
  • 2 peppers sliced
  • 1 zucchini sliced into rounds
  • 1 onion diced
  • olive oil
  • salt/pepper
  • 1 cucumber, chopped
  • tzatiki sauce (I used Cedar’s brand but you can make your own)
  • feta cheese

Directions:

If you want to help cut down on time, I usually will have all the veggies cut ahead of time and store in a large ziploc bag in the fridge.

  1. In a large bowl combine the ground turkey, eggs, bread crumbs, and rest of the meatball ingredients.
  2. Mix together until combined.
  3. Roll into balls.
  4. I like to cook my meatballs in the air fryer, I think they get more crispy that way. I usually spray the air fryer with a little cooking spray and will pop the meatballs in the air fryer on 400 degrees for about 10-15 minutes, until golden brown and outside is crispy. (linking my air fryer here) Or you can bake in the oven.
  5. While the meatballs cook, spread out the potatoes and vegetables onto a roasting pan, drizzle with olive oil, salt and pepper and bake until nice and roasted, golden brown.
  6. Next build the bowls! Fill your bowl with the roasted veggies, chopped cucumber and turkey meatballs. Add some crumbly feta cheese and tzatziki sauce. Enjoy!
