our fall weekend
Happy Veterans Day!
I want to first say thank you to all the men & women who have served & continue to serve our country. Without your sacrifices, we wouldn't have the freedoms that we enjoy today. A personal THANK YOU to all my family & friends who are serving right now & who have served. May we never forget your sacrifices to your families, friends & country! God bless.

Here are a few pictures from our weekend. Matt took a day off from studying, so we did a lot of things around the house & also went to a local park surrounding a lake. My iPhone pictures do not capture the true beauty of the Virginia fall, but they will just have to do. Oliver absolutely loved walking on the trail & kept picking up sticks and leaves. He is such a curious little guy that has to see and touch EVERYTHING! He has such a gentle & adventurous spirit that makes my heart full.
Our Law Wives Association had a bake sale yesterday, so I made these bad boys. Seriously, they were probably the best cinnamon rolls Matt & I ever tasted! I own the Pioneer Woman cookbook & that is where I found this cinnamon roll recipe. If you do not own her cookbook (which I highly recommend you do), you can still find this recipe here!
I know... A selfie... But, you guys NEED to try Mayorga coffee! We buy ours from Costco (we get the organic Cafe Cubano dark roast) & it is probably the smoothest coffee we have ever bought! Paired with pumpkin spice creamer & BAM, great start to your day ;)
Oliver & I probably spent a good 10-15 minutes picking up leaves and throwing them around the other day. His favorite was when I would pick up a bunch of leaves & sprinkle them on him! He could have kept at it, but it was getting really cold outside ;)
Is his face not just the sweetest thing you ever did see?!
p.s. don't mind my fingers ;)
