The last week of October!  Can you believe it!?  Christmas is less than two months away.  Crazy. 

Anyhoo, it's Friday, y'all!!
If you follow my blog or, especially my instagram feed, you'll know that I looooove my daily dose of Kombucha.  Love, love, love it.  Well, I recently had the opportunity to be a guest poster on an awesome blog called What is Kombucha?  I wrote up a post about how I got started drinking this magical stuff.  Read my post here.


It's almost a new month - time for a new edition of The Monthly Meet Up!

Join myself and my girl Marie over at Family and the Lakehouse and be a part of our goal-oriented linky party on November 1st!  Share any and all goals you have for the month of November.  We'd love for you to party with us!!

Fall always sends my love for cooking into overdrive.  My poor food blog (The Carnitarian Family) had been neglected so it was nice to get some new stuff on there.  Here are a few of the new recipes I've posted recently - check them out!
The weather.
Oh, the weather.  It has been such a lovely, warm (for Michigan, at least!) October.  We've spent so much time outside this fall and it's been marvelous.  We've gone to a couple of different farms/pumpkin patches this year - I love this age and how excited the kids are to do this stuff!

 Oh, Fall....
Redmond got to trick-or-treat at his school and Ashlyn got to tag along as well.  It was so cute.  I mean, is there anything cuter than preschoolers in costumes?  Ashlyn couldn't wait to dress up as Elsa....until she woke up that morning.  Then she wanted to be a doctor.  Ok!
Then, we hit up our local Home Depot for a little more Halloween fun.  The kids are loving all their candy!

 We have some more fun Halloween activities planned for the next couple of days.  The kids are really into it this year!
Until next time,
~ Sara :)

  2. LOVE those pumpkin pictures! We made a trip this week too but it was far too rushed. Your link up sounds like such a great idea! I need to put some goals in writing each month :-)
