Exterior Home Update

A Black Front Door!

I have always wanted one...and $35 dollars later it is here...keep reading for the big reveal!

We finished a few upgrades to the exterior of our home today, minus the stonework we want to add to the pillars next spring.

This is the photo the listing agent used when our house was originally for sale...
slightly underwhelming.

So I changed the lights (yes, me) and bought some mums.


Then grew some balls and got the paint...Behr Premium Plus Ultra Exterior Paint with Primer in Black Suede.


Drum Roll Please! 

We love the upgrade and I have put the kids in the car twice just to "drive by". We even had the shutters done in the same color BLACK!

Homemade Organic Pumpkin Spice Creamer

It smells like I am baking a pie...but all I am doing is sitting in my favorite chair drinking coffee.

Dunkin Donuts pumpkin home-brewed coffee (because it was on sale) with homemade organic pumpkin spice creamer (because of this pin on pinterest).
I made the recipe according to the changes made by Kristy via her blog. It was so simple to make, and holy cow does it blow store bought versions out of the water. Enjoy!
