Hello hello! How are you as we enter this final stretch of October? (WHAT?!) We are doing just super over here. This past week I finished up the bulk of my work for 2017 which seems like a miracle. I’m a little deep in final cookbook edits and have a few other things to do, but other than that, it’s crazy that I will finally have some time to relax!

Last week I shared what will most likely be my last baby #2 update before the babe arrives. We’re on babe watch now but in no rush. I also updated my favorites in my SHOP! And! I’m also going to share some of my favorite picks for the Sephora VIB sale over on crumbs later this week, so stay tuned!

Some other things:

You can see how I set up a cute DIY coffee cart over at Crate and Barrel. Nice little switch from the traditional bar cart!

And I made a few pear recipes for Harry and David with their amazing royal riviera pears that you can find right here!

Now, for what amazing things caught my eye this week:

this savory butternut squash pie looks unreal.

very into these masala chai chocolate chip cookies.

one bowl mini chocolate chip pumpkin pancakes! one bowl.

this orange whiskey pate de fruit sounds fabulous.

adore this pink and orange fall tablescape!

how to host a fall charcuterie party. right up my alley.

love the idea of pecan butternut squash bread.

ohhhh my. baileys coffee custard donuts.

slow cooker buffalo chicken potatoes! this is a great idea.

looks amazing: apple bacon and rosemary pizza.

creamy butternut pasta with brussels. yes yes yes!
