Fall Tricks, Treats & News

It’s Friiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiday!! Put a smile on your face 🙂 I have two visitors coming up this weekend from Maryland and am VERY excited!

Yesterday marked the first official day of fall so I decided to make myself a treat! Always an excuse to celebrate 😉

Pumpkin French Toast!

So simple and filling – A great way to kick off fall! All you need:

Pumpkin French Toast (dairy-free)


  • 3 slices of Whole Wheat Light Style Bread (45 calories each = 135)
  • 1 tbsp ground flax (30 calories)
  • 2 tbsp water ( 0 calories)
  • 2 tbsp pure pumpkin (not pumpkin pie mix) (10 calories)
  • 1 tbsp almond milk (2 calories)
  • 1 tbsp Pumpkin Pie spice
  • Mix everything (except bread) into a bowl

  • Dip each side of bread into bowl and place in pre-heated skillet

  • Flip when brown and repeat
  • Drizzle syrup on top of french toast

AMAZING and under 200 calories!

Now that I’ve shown you my treat I’d like to share this video of trick’s I saw. 25 ways to wear a scarf! I am queen of scarves ( I own about 40, no lie) and I’m always looking for new ways to wear them. This girl will show you how to do it!

Pretty sweet, eh?

For the last tidbit of information on this Friday I’d like to tell you some big (to me) news.

I’ve signed up to do my FIRST half marathon!!!!!!! Of course I wouldn’t have it any other way than me running 13.1 miles in a tutu and a tiara 🙂

This girl has never ran longer than 5 miles but I have time to train so I’m VERY excited!! If anyone has any tips or a really great training plan please let me know!

Have a good weekend

Just preparing....

  7. THANK YOU for that video. It’s like you read my mind. I have this awesome new scarf from Banana but it’s a short scarf so I’m at a loss for cute ways to tie it- problem solved!
    Oh and thanks for the recipe- I think this weekend may be a french toast weekend 🙂

  8. Pumpkin french toast sounds soooo good!

  14. What an awesome half-marathon! I’d love to run this too 🙂 Your pumpkin french toast looks fantastic…perfect to kick off fall!

  15. A very simple french toast recipe, but looks very good! I’m thinking of using my cinnamon raisin bagels for this to make cinnamon-raisin-pumpkin french toast tomorrow!

  16. That is the most helpful thing I’ve ever seeeeeen! I usually wear my scarf like one of two ways, I’m going to be so versatile this winter!

  17. I would love to do a Disney race! That’s going to be so fun 🙂

  18. I love scarves but really have no idea how to wear one properly without looking like I’m choking myself so this is fabulous!

  19. LOVE the scarf tutorial! I *kind of* know how to wear a scarf two ways, so I will be using this to mix things up this fall! (I’m a scarf hoarder too). 🙂

    Your French toast looks amaaazing. And yaay for signing up for the Princess Half! I’ve had my eye on that race for the past year and would love to join you…Running in a tutu and tiara sounds like too much fun. 😀

  20. That scarf tutorial is so nifty! I love scarves, but I usually just tangle my neck up in one and call it a day. 😉

    Congrats on signing up for your first half marathon! That’s awesome!!

  21. OMG! I’M SO JEALOUS!!! i WANT TO RUN THAT HALF MARATHON TOO!! I hope you’re being serious about running in a tutu and a tiara…because there is no other way to run the disney princess half! Good luck with training!! 😀

  22. Just found your blog while looking for the Disney Princess Half logo. It’s my first half marathon too! Looking forward to it. Good luck!!
