Fashion Fix Friday {Capes}

So whoever said Superman and Wonder Woman were the only chosen ones to don the ever powerful cape??  Last year I scooped up a navy cape that I obsessed over when I purchased and then something possessed me to tuck it away deep in my closet?!  Just last weekend I remembered this darlin’ gem and decided to break it out and get my superpower on and now, I am officially obsessed!  What could possibly be better than a stylish ensemble that makes you feel like you’re rockin’ your pj’s and bonus, your strut becomes a little more swaggerish because 

So how do you feel about transforming into a superhero?!

Quote of the Week

We are officially in our new home (yippee) and after a week and 3 days, most everything is out of a box and in its place (Go us...and our loving family who helped so much) We even managed to deck the halls for the Christmas Season with one tree up and one more to go!  I've been snapping a few before pics and can't wait to share all the afters.  Some people may say this time of year is absolutely bananas to move into a new home but, I think it's even more exciting to move in and celebrate right away with those you love most!

I hope you all had an amazing Thanksgiving and have started to feel the Christmas spirit too!

Happy December my loves!

For the Love of Cooking: {Pumpkin Gnocchi}

If Gnocchi is on the menu, chances are it’s going to be my entrée of choice.  
There is something about those little dough dumplings that hits the spot for me.  Could it be my addiction to carbs?!  Quite possibly; and you see that is reason enough for me to lust over these perfect fall recipes.  I would love nothing more than to cover my entire kitchen in flour and give my best attempt of making my gnocchi from scratch (as my brother’s Italian fiancée Christina does) BUT, I make no promises that while the majority of my home is being boxed up in preparation for our move, that my little dough balls won’t be store bought- shame on me…I know! Maybe next year I can follow these recipes a little more closely! 

I decided to share two variations of this recipe because we all like options right?!  
First up, and my top pick comes from a featured post on Camille Styles blog (If you aren’t familiar with Camille put it on the to do list!) by Mimi Thorisson of Manager (item #2 on your to do list).  The Saint-Nectarie cheese sauce is what caught my eye and really pulled me to this pumpkin gnocchi.

 Get the Recipe

Next up, is a Brown Butter & Sage Pumpkin Gnocchi.  Now, this recipe I know I will LOVE as it incorporates potatoes as many gnocchi recipes do and a dash of cinnamon…YES!!

Get the Recipe

Are you a fan of gnocchi??  Have you tired these variations?? Details!!
Bon Appetite!

Magnolia {Farmhouse Chic}

One of my and Scott's favorite shows to watch is Fixer Upper on HGTV.  If you aren’t familiar with the show, stop what you are doing and set your DVR to record!! You will absolutely fall in love with Joanna and Chip Gaines, the muscle and beauty behind each gorgeous reno!  Not only are these two ridiculously talented, but, they are one of the most loving and compassionate couples on TV.  It’s an extremely nice break from a lot of garbage {to put it nicely}  that fills our airwaves today.

Joanna has a few signature pieces she is known for and I’ll be sharing more next week but, today I wanted to share one of “Jo Jo’s” (as Chip calls her) go to fixer upper farmhouse meets glam pieces…The sliding barn door!  My very best friend Rebecca and her husband Greg are in the process of building their forever home on a huge plot of family land that will be oozing in old farmhouse beauty and this is one statement piece I’m dying to see her incorporate!  I can hardly stand the wait to see this gem!!

Below is few of my favorites I’ve rounded up on Pinterest for you all to gush over!  After your drool sesh, you must stop by Magnolia Farm were Jo Jo and Chip call home and indulge just a little bit more!

Sophisticated In White {Fall Decor}

One of my favorite seasons to decorate for is Fall.  
 There is something about the cooler season and deep rich tones that just gives you that warm and fuzzy feeling of comfort.  As I updated you a couple post back, Scott and I are currently selling our home and guess what…as of  last Friday night, we have accepted an offer!!! Yippee!! Unfortunately, having the house on the market means I had to dial back my fun and festive fall décor but, I couldn’t help but gush over these clean white round with perfection style options.  I still say you must toss in a few deeper hues here and there but, you can never go wrong with clean and ever so elegant white.  Next, year in our new home (fingers crossed) white with pops of orange and deep red is what you will find at the Gaither “estate”! 

How do you decorate for the fall months?
Do yo stick with the classics or mix it up a bit?
