Chaser Halloween Tees

Ok so Fall is one of our favorite seasons because it kicks off the holidays with a bang with one of the best…yep, you guessed it Halloween!!  We have a ton of fun stuff in store for you, but we decided to kick it off in style with a double whammy….Chaser and the cutest littles around. First of all, Chaser has the cutest kids line, and they do it right by taking funky prints and designing them on their softest tees.  That way your littles can wear these fun holiday prints without you feeling like they are wearing a cheesy halloween tee shirt.  When we gave the kiddos the options of what they had to choose from they went a little nuts for all these cute tees.  Check out our little style session with these babes…

Baby Spotlight – Plum & Sparrow

Happy Monday and welcome to another installment of newborn heaven!!  Leah and I are taking today to share yet another amazing baby brand that we have fallen in love with, well actually, we fell in love with this brand even before these boys came into this world!  Today, the spotlight is on Plum & Sparrow, a gorgeous and one of a kind moses basket line that also offers other pretty accessories.  Leah and I had seen Plum & Sparrow around and fell in love with the look of the baskets and now have fallen in love with the functionality as well!  The baskets are made so incredibly well and the variety of colors are really gorgeous, not to mention the sheet options and cute little pom poms that come attached!  We get to have our little men with us around our house easily and in style!  Another great side note?  All Plum & Sparrow products are sustainably made and they are a supporter of the Fair Trade Federation which means 10% of each purchase goes back to the African weavers and their families who make the baskets – providing them with school supplies, healthcare and the funding and building of the community weaving centers.  To good to be true?!  Check out these amazing baskets and the cute little men who adorn them!

Here are Leah and my picks that we can’t get enough of…

meganwelker-plumandsparrow-5 meganwelker-plumandsparrow-3 Here are the little buddies together hanging out in their baskets!  These baskets are just made so well, you can see it in the amazing detail through-out each basket.  Here is a little bit from Plum & Sparrow on the making of their baskets…

“Our baskets are made by an amazing group of weavers in a village in Africa, the group consists of both men and women who have developed this skill and art form which has been passed down from generations. They are also now passing it down to their children in hopes of creating a lasting legacy that will benefit their children.”

meganwelker-plumandsparrow-10 Hi Henry!  Loving you and that cute little face!!

meganwelker-plumandsparrow-16 meganwelker-plumandsparrow-20 And there is cutie pie Cruz, smirking and smiling…

meganwelker-plumandsparrow-22 meganwelker-plumandsparrow-25 Want another reason to love this company?!  It was founded and is owned by mother of 4, Dianna Barton!  We love when a mother is so inspired by her own family that she wants to share it with others, and that is just what happened here.  Here’s a little bit straight from Dianna…

“When I was pregnant with my 4th baby, someone gave me a Moses basket. I fell in love with it and I used it all the time. At the time, the baskets came in just the natural and espresso colors. I am a color person so I decided one day I was going to locate and purchase a new colorful and bright basket. I searched everywhere to see if I could find one but had no luck. It was then that I knew this idea had to come to fruition.”

meganwelker-ps-8 Need we say more?!  Hope you are as obsessed as us… Be sure to check them out!

Fall Salads – Kale Roasted Butternut Squash and Couscous Salad

I love this time of year!  It’s still nice and warm out (well at least in California) but things are beginning to look like Fall (or at least we are willing them to, ha!)  With the weather still warm, but you wanting to try something hearty for dinner this Kale Roasted Butternut Squash and Couscous salad is the perfect solution!  It’s still light enough to sustain the heat wave but also full enough to sustain your belly.  Not only that, it’s easy and it’s healthy!  Perfect if you ask me!  So let’s dive in!!

Photos by Megan Welker



1 Small Butternut Squash, peeled, seeded, and diced into cubes
2 Tablespoons Olive Oil
Salt and Pepper
1 Cup Dry Pearl Couscous, cooked in water according to package instructions – we used the Garlic flavored one and loved the additional flavor
1 Bunch chopped Kale Leaves
1/3 Cup Dried Cranberries
1/3 Cup Chopped Walnuts
2 Ounces Goat Cheese, crumbled – Optional, you know how I feel about cheese…
Orange Vinaigrette (recipe below)


2 Tablespoons Apple Cider Vinegar
2 Tablespoons Extra Virgin Olive Oil
2 Tablespoons Freshly-Squeezed Orange Juice
Pinch of Salt and Pepper, to taste

meganwelker-august-88 Directions

Heat oven to 425°F.
In a large mixing bowl, toss cubed butternut squash with olive oil.  Sprinkle with a few generous pinches of salt and pepper, and toss until combined.

Spread the butternut squash out in an even layer on a parchment-covered baking sheet.  Bake for 15 minutes, then remove from the oven and flip the squash for even cooking.  Bake for an additional 10-15 minutes, or until the squash is tender and slightly browned around the edges.  Remove from oven and transfer back to the large mixing bowl.

Add couscous, kale, cranberries, walnuts, goat cheese, and vinaigrette, and toss to combine.
Serve warm, or refrigerate in a sealed container for up to 3 days.

For the Vinaigrette…
Whisk all ingredients together until combined.  Taste, and season with additional salt and pepper if needed.  Add to salad; I like to let my kale salads sit in the fridge a bit after mixing to absorb the dressing to get the best tastiness factor…

Finally, enjoy!

Fall Foliage Wreath

meganwelker-sept8-22 1.  Choose your desired products to use.  For this wreath I wanted to use natural elements and foliage that dried, creating something that can be used the whole season.

From left to right in the picture I used feathers, dried mushrooms, wheat, birch branches, bittersweet, lotus pods, and pampus grass.

meganwelker-sept8-2 2.  Supplies Include:

-ribbon or twine to hang wreath
– wire
-glue gun (not shown)
-scissors(not shown)

meganwelker-sept8-5 3.  Start with cutting birch branches to the length and thickness of your desire.  Secure the branches together with wire on each end.  This is your base for the wreath.

4.  Start placing your larger foliage over the birch branches, securing with the wire.

meganwelker-sept8-9 5.  Start adding more foliage or blooms.  You may need to play and adjust as you go.  I did!

6.  After a few larger items are placed how you like, take your ribbon and tie on the back and front of the branches.  Hold it up to make sure it stays even and doesn’t fall forward.

meganwelker-sept8-12 7.  After your ribbon is tied, place your remaining products on the wreath.  I used a glue gun to secure the dried mushrooms and pods.

meganwelker-sept8-13 8.  Hang on your door and enjoy! =)

 Pampas Grass Wreath


This pampas grass wreath is super easy to make!  If you live in Southern California you can easily pick your own pampus grass wild (but you didn’t hear that from me!)  or its available at your local nursery or flower shop.

1.  Supplies needed:

-Metal Frame

meganwelker-sept8-39 2.  Cut your pampas grass down.  I used one piece and got about 2-3 pieces from it.

3.  Cluster the pampas grass and secure to the frame, without cutting the wire and leaving it long.

meganwelker-sept8-43 4.  Place another cluster of pampas grass over the first piece, making sure there is no frame showing.  You don’t need to cut the wire; by keeping it attached to the paddle it will create a stronger and tighter hold.

5.  Continue this pattern until you work your way to the first piece.  You may need to adjust the pampas grass on the last cluster to hide any stems.  Cut the wire and secure to the back.

meganwelker-sept8-46 6.  Hang up on your door!

*Tip- to get your pampas grass to dry and not shed as much, spray it with hair spray*

Thanks Meagan for sharing all of your tricks!

We love these wreaths so much and how festive they are for Fall!

Stay tuned for more fun Fall ideas and activities we will be sharing from our list!
