I always want to do cute things for back to school for my daughter. Then suddenly back to school creeps up on me and I haven’t done anything. That is why I have decided this year to try a few simple ideas for back to school. These fruit roll up apple pops are an easy snack. Kids will love them because duh they are fruit roll ups and they look like little apples, what’s not to like?! You get bonus mom points and you didn’t really have to make anything, score! Perfect for lazy moms like myself. Well not really lazy more like who’s got time when you have to get kids ready for school that take an hour to pick out socks. Not to name any names ;).

I wanted to brighten up the table for fall so I decided to make this fun fall table runner. It was really cheap ($2) and easy to make. It doesn’t have to be just for fall but orange is a good fall color. Plus I have been seeing a lot of orange with black and white this fall. Orange is my daughters favorite color right now. It’s funny since orange is not most kids favorite color. However, this time of year is perfect for it with all the fall decor and of course Halloween! Now she can enjoy all of the orange decorations everywhere! By the time the next holiday rolls around she will probably have a new favorite. Although my favorite color as a kid was purple and that one stuck. You never know, kids are unpredictable!
Fall is such a lovely time isn’t it?! It is a time for all things pumpkin. I love love all of the pumpkin stuff. I load up on all things pumpkin. Pumpkin bread, lattes, spice, and pies. Then by the end of pumpkin season I feel like I never want to see anything pumpkin ever again. By the time fall comes around the next year I am ready for it again! I made some fall printables to show my love for fall. Pumpkin spice and everything nice! I also made a Hello, Fall one and you can grab them down below. Whichever one tickles your fancy. I know not everyone is into the pumpkin spice. I personally have come around to love it, but that wasn’t always the case. When I first tried a pumpkin spice latte I wasn’t a fan. Now I can’t get enough. It’s like when you hear a song and think what is this terrible assault on my ears. Then after the tenth time you are humming along. After the twentieth time you are full on car dancing and loving it! It only took me about twenty pumpkin spice lattes to really fall in love. I’m kidding it was really only about five.
I am so ready for it to feel like fall. I live in Phoenix, Arizona where we don’t exactly have seasons. There is the hot season and nice season. “Fall” doesn’t really happen, we don’t get a lot of changing leaves. When I lived in California the street I lived in had a ton of changing leaves in October. I really miss taking walks down that street with all the beautiful colors. I would still like to pretend it is fallish here. The weather is finally getting a bit nicer out and as soon as I can I will bring out the fall wardrobe. I love cozy clothes scarfs, boots, and baggy sweaters. Yay, it is almost that time, once it drops below 90 degrees! I am getting in the fall mood with these cute candy fall trees. They are adorable and just made out of candy.
