Spilling The Beans

Ahhh taking a little blogging break was much needed for sure!

Well we are finally spilling the beans! Baby Kilgore is due early December! The month of May sure did turn out a lot differently than I thought it would. We were supposed to go to Venice, Italy (and Milan) and after finding out the news we decided not to go. I mean why go to Italy and not be able to drink wine? Okay, we had better reasons than that but still. The blogging break was much needed as I was so exhausted I could hardly lift my head off the pillow, let alone do other things. But there is no better birthday gift than now being so close to my second trimester! Whew!

When we were coming up with ideas on an announcement photo I thought it would be hilarious to use my Dad's canoe since the gondola ride down the canals of Venice will have to wait. So my sweet Dad helped us create this photo and eased my nervousness of flipping over in the water.

The icing on the cake is that throughout our many travels we've picked up baby items for when the time came. Once in Rome, we picked up these jackets. Little did we know at the time they would be a big part of our baby announcement.


So here is to my 29th year. I have a feeling it's going to be pretty good. Cheers (with my Ginger Ale, of course) I'm excited to finally be able to share the news with you!

All The Fall

It's been a really crazy week, as per usual. Tons of fall shoots and constructing my closet as been very time consuming. Sharing a quick outfit pic of me on the job since that is all we have been doing and having a blast too! Seriously guys, this blanket scarf is everything. Best SEVEN DOLLARS I've ever spent.

But one thing is for sure my sweet Husband has been begging for Mini Pumpkin Pies for like ..long. And nothing screams fall quite like baking.  With a roast in the oven and apple candles wafting through my house it felt like exactly the right moment to get baking. 

I make these little guys every year! Here is my recipe: 

1 box pie crust

1 15oz can pumpkin

2 eggs

1 14oz can sweetened condensed milk  

1 tbsp Pumpkin Pie Spice

1/2 cup sugar

1/2 tsp salt

Whipped cream for topping

Preheat oven 425, Mix everything but pie crust and whipped cream (obviously) , and spray muffin tin with spray butter. Since I used a mini muffin tin, I used the top of a champagne glass to make perfect circles and put one on the bottom push it as far as it goes and then add another circle. Push into the pan until it comes up to just the edge. Fill 3/4 of the way up and pop in the oven for about 15 minutes or until the pumpkin mixture isn't runny looking. Top with whipped cream and enjoy!

Happy Thursday!


On The Job

Last week was really weird. Also very busy. I thought I would share some of my very on the go looks and a little of what I look like on the job. It's all about finding a good pair of shoes! And of course cozy sweaters. Isn't Fall amazing?

Have a wonderful Monday, hope there is a glass of vino at the end of it.
