Inspiration Monday

Hiya, friends! Are you still noshing on leftover turkey and getting deliriously lost in putting up Christmas decor? Or are you like me and bundled up watching a Hallmark movie hoping the house will finish decorating itself...ha?!? We had a fun Thanksgiving both at our home on Thursday and with some of my husband's family on Friday...it was truly a great holiday. Then we started this fun:
Like I said, not totally done...and hoping the rest magically puts itself into place (wink!). Feel free to follow along here over on Instagram for more of my holiday decor.

It's officially the Christmas season! YAY! Since I host Thanksgiving at my home, I've been itching to break out the Christmas decor...and I finally can. I've been working on lots of new handmade decorations this year, so it's tough to create something and then stick it in the closet for a bit. But today, we shall deck the halls, y'all! AND, be sure to deck out your Facebook Timeline for the holidays, too. Grab your favorite free Facebook Christmas Watercolor Timeline below.

Pumpkin Banana Bread

Pumpkin and bananas aren't instantly thought of as the perfect flavor combo. But, this dense, rich Pumpkin Banana Bread will have you thinking twice. It's a really nice quick bread that doesn't have overpowering flavors from the fruit (or vegetable!). 

Pumpkin Banana Bread: Easy Quick Bread Recipe
I'm sad to type it, but it looks like this will be my last pumpkin recipe of the year...from here on out we seem to switch into total Christmas overload, right? Goodbye to pumpkins and hello to peppermint. (Secretly, I love the pumpkins more.) This quick bread would be perfect to whip up for Thanksgiving breakfast...especially if you have overnight guests. It's easy to nibble on while you're basting that bird. ;)
