   Hi lovelies! I can't believe its almost fall! The cooler evenings here in Alabama have me longing for fall treats! One of my faves to make in the fall is sweet bread!

I have searched the web and come up with 10 of my favorite simple recipes from some pretty amazing blogs!
Apple Fritter Bread - Soft, fluffy bread that's stuffed AND topped with apples, cinnamon, and sugar!! Like apple fritters in bread form!! Best apple bread EVER!

Happy Sunday! :)

   Hi lovelies! I haven't shared a Happy Sunday post in way too long! I've heard this song so many times this past week and it really encourages me and speaks to my heart, so I wanted to share with you all! It is just so uplifting and a wonderful reminder of God's love for us!

I don't need my name in lights
I'm famous in my Father's eyes.
Make no mistake,
He knows my name
...I'm not living for applause.
I'm already so adored.
It's all His stage, He knows my name

Happy Sunday, sweet friends! Hope y'all have an amazing week!

Falling in Love... with Pumpkin Bread!

   Happy September, friends! The weather here has started getting cool in the evenings and I absolutely love it! I have had my pumpkin candle burning all week and I am about to get started with my fall decorating. My first step, as always, is going to be  buying some mums for the front porch. Eeek! I can hardly wait! :)
I have been wanting pumpkin bread for a while and with the gorgeous autumn weather this week, I couldn't resist! What says fall more than pumpkin bread?! Here is my easy recipe! :) 

First Mix:
4 egg yolks
2/3 cup water
1 cup cooking oil
1 can pumpkin (15 oz)

Then Add:
3 cups sugar
1 1/2 t. salt
1 t. cinnamon
1 t. nutmeg
3 1/2 cups self-rising flour 

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

Mix egg yolks, water, oil, and pumpkin puree. I used a whisk.

Add sugar, salt, cinnamon, nutmeg, and flour and mix well. I just used a large spoon.

After mixing everything well (try to get most of the lumps out, but a few are ok), pour into three medium loaf pans (about 3/4 full) that have been sprayed with non-stick cooking spray. You can also make 2 loaf pans and 6 muffins. Bake at 350 degrees for 50-60 minutes. Don't overcook. Wrap in saran wrap while warm. Enjoy! :) 

*If you decide to share, these make wonderful gifts! I like to make a batch every year using the mini loaf pans. I just wrap each one in saran wrap and tie a ribbon around it. :)

New Glasses, Y'all! Firmoo Review and Revenge of the Nerds.

Hi y'all! 
I'm pretty excited about these new glasses I received from Firmoo the other day. I've been seeing the "Revenge of the Nerds" style frames everywhere. If you watch Criminal Minds (Lord, have mercy I am so addicted to that show) you may have seen this style of frame there, also, so naturally I was ecstatic when I saw these on the Firmoo website. 
 This is the second pair of glasses I have ordered from Firmoo and I have been so pleased with this company and the quality of the eyeglasses they sell. 

  Firmoo offers high quality prescription (or non-prescription) eyeglasses starting at around $8 a pair. It is very easy to find a pair that will look great on your face by virtually trying on as many pairs as you need to. You upload a photo of yourself to their website. You just have to have been to the eye dr recently and have an up to date prescription. 

  New customers get 15% off of frames sitewide using a coupon code you can get by going to this link. Check them out for all of your eyeglass needs... They add new frames all the time and have awesome specials all the time. I don't think you will be disappointed! Hope y'all have a wonderful week!
