If you love to get ready for the Fall like I do, you definitely need to check this out! You will get tons of new ideas to help you figure out the projects you want to start out for my favorite time of year! :) In Louisiana it doesn't remain cool for very long, so we take full advantage of it! 


My favorite project from the Gardenieres site was Teena's Backyard Orchard! I have always wanted fruit bearing trees in my backyard! I definitely want a lemon tree because Teena said they actually bear fruit year-round!She was also able to teach you when they are just ripe enough to pick! Not to mention I absolutely LOVE fresh squeezed lemonade! I would definitely use the MG_Garden_Soil_Tree_Shrub.jpg It is ideal for trees, evergreens, and flowering shrubs. It also feeds for up to three months!  Make sure visit the Miracle-Gro Facebook page to exchange tons of ideas with other fellow gardeners like yourself.  

Fall is the BEST time of year to plant trees and shrubs!!! You can learn more about that by clicking here —->Find beauty in the Fall! There are tons of different projects you can learn about creating for the Fall and how there is a different type of Miracle Grow for each of your products that will make it so much easier, whether it be potting projects, tree and shrubs, or in ground projects!

Quick Recipe Idea for Supper

The hurricane is almost here so I prepared a quick but healthy supper tonight that was DELICIOUS!! I will admit that I did NOT make the chicken salad ( I bought it pre-made at our local market). I was preparing for the storm :)

I bought pistolette rolls, baked them in the oven for approx 10 min!

Then filled the bread with chicken salad and added the HEALTHY alfalfa  sprouts to give it that crunch!

It was great!


On the side I just chopped up a tomato and half of a cucumber, added a little salt and pepper, and a drizzle of italian dressing! Voila! Oh, wait… and Of course my diet coke! hehe! Just in case you were looking for something easy, healthy, and quick to make! Hope you enjoy!

Couponin’ On Coffee and family are back and Finally settled in our new home!

As many of you know, my family and I were in the process of selling our house and trying to find another one suitable to our needs! Between all of the showings and researching of new houses it became so hectic to keep up with the blog at the same time… I am so sorry I have been MIA. BUT I am happy to say we are finally settled in our new home and there is just a few more things to unpack! We went from a 1301 sq ft house to a 2440 sq ft house, so it was a huge change and such a blessing from God! We are so happy to have our lives  feeling normal again! It is me, my husband, our 3 kids, our lab, and our recent kitten we rescued at a burger king! I am so excited to be back into the blogging world! I have definitely missed it! I am excited to start sharing deals again and blogging about fun and exciting things!! ;) Below is a picture of our new home! It definitely has the space we have been looking for!! Hopefully everyone has been doing great!
