 I'm not going to lie. For the last five years that I've hosted the big day, my go to leftover receptacle has been an old Cool Whip container or butter tub. It got the job done. No disrespect to plastic tubs everywhere, but, I've decided to step up my game a bit this year. I created these circular free printable leftover labels to jazz up foil containers. And my foil pans were only four for a dollar at the Dollar Tree {wha, wha!}. I'm stepping up my game without spending much moolah...that's how I roll {wink}. Download your own free printable leftover labels below. They come in two designs and two sizes.

Fall Color Trends for the Home

There are so many ways to transition decor between seasons. Check out my Fall Color Trends for the Home below, along with some fantastic decorating ideas from Hunter Douglas and Décorview.

Fall Color Trends for the Home: easy ways to switch out seasonal decor throughout the year.
Fall is just the best, dontcha think? I got to experience real fall last week on my trip to New York and Connecticut. Down here in Texas, we have to truck in fall by the pallet-load (AKA: our make-shift pumpkin patches). Our leaves just don't quite have the punch of a northern fall. But man...last week, I was in autumnal paradise. Some of the other ladies on my trip giggled at me taking photos of trees and leaves...but, y'all, WOW. Just gorgeous. When decorating for fall, I love to take my cue from nature...and let those beautiful colors just glow amongst the neutral backdrop in my home. Below, I'm sharing some simple ways to incorporate seasonal decor as well as transition between the seasons in your home.

Spinach Brownies with Pumpkin Frosting (And other ways to get kids eating veggies!)



Yes. Spinach Brownies. You read that right. Spinach. Brownies.
Sounds weird...but you will LOVE these {and so will your kids!}. 
And everyone will get a nice dose of Vitamins K, A, and more...
wrapped up in a deliciously moist brownie!
Nobody will know your super secret ingredient in these moist and flavorful spinach brownies. They're a great way to sneak veggies into your family's diet.

According to the State of the Plate report, 9 out of 10 people in the United States do not get the proper amount of vegetables today. Adding veggies to unexpected places is one way to ensure your family will get their daily dose. See this recipe, along with other tips and tricks for getting kids to eat their veggies, below.
