Fall Inspiration from Pinterest

Hello lovely readers!

As of yesterday it is officially fall! I was planning on posting this yesterday, but I have been sick since Wednesday. I started working in a new building and room last week and I came home on Tuesday with a sore throat. Then on Wednesday I still had the sore throat and by the end of the day I had a fever of 100.2. I had a fever yesterday as well and did not feel up to writing yesterday. But I am feeling much better today, I  have not had a fever, just a runny nose and cough.

Anyway I love fall! I love the cool weather, which means sweatshirts, scarfs and hot drinks like apple cider and hot chocolate. It also means the leaves will start changing color and falling, and that means Bradley and I will be close to taking our engagement pictures. But for todays post I wanted to do like a little inspiration of things related to fall from Pinterest. I will show you some cute decor or DIY projects you could do that would be cute around the house, clothes I would love to wear, drinks that would be great to make and anything else related to fall.

A warm drink for a cold day!

Hello wonderful readers! I haven’t mentioned this but I live in Ohio and yesterday it was so cold here. This year so far December has been pretty warm, with temperatures being in the high 50’s and 60’s. But yesterday it was in the 20’s. After being out in the cold from shopping, Bradley and I just wanted to get home, build a nice fire and make some Hot Chocolate. I had found a recipe for Crock Pot Hot Chocolate I wanted to try, but instead we tried the Hot Chocolate they made in The Polar Express. It was really good too. The recipe says it will take about 30 to 40 minutes on the stove, but mine took a little bit longer. But it was worth the wait, and since we didn’t drink it all we have 4 Mason Jars of leftovers. I’m sure your reading this and wondering where the recipe is, so here you go.

-1.5 cups Heavy Cream

-1 can sweetened condensed milk (14 oz

-2 cups bittersweet chocolate chips

-6 cups milk

-1 tsp vanilla extract

Now all you do is combine all the ingredients into a pan on the stove over low heat until all the Chocolate Chips are melted. It should take about 30 to 40 minutes but it might take longer like mine did. Next time it is cold where ever you live, this is the drink for you. I hope you enjoy !
