A Southern November and All The Cozy Vibes

Good morning, everyone. I feel like every time I sit down to write; it’s cold and rainy outside. I guess it’s a blessing in disguise. Before I begin today’s blog post, I want to shout out to all who have served, currently serving, and who have made the ultimate sacrifice to defend our freedom and keep us safe. Thank you and happy Veterans Day. I know California has been through a lot the past week, so my heart goes out to them! So devastating and my prayers are with you. ❤️
I feel like it’s been a minute since I’ve had a real recap post up on the blog. I debated on posting another Disney travel blog + video today, but I know a lot of you guys enjoy the recaps, so I pushed that to later this week. I love recaps because I get to check in, keep it real, and show you guys what I’ve been up to lately. I always feel like I’m chatting with friends and I never want to steer away from them as I continue to blog. I always promised myself to stick to what I enjoy and never fall under the pressure of too many polished posts.

I was up bright and early on Monday morning. I wanted to get a few things done on the blog before heading to the airport to fly home. Around noon, I went down to grab another a cappuccino, some overnight oats to go, and then headed to the airport. I started to read on my flight, but could not focus on anything. I ended up listening to music and staring out the window for an hour and a half. 
When I left the airport, I stopped at Chopt to pick up some salads and wraps for my family. Kyle was out of town on Monday, so my parent’s watched the boys for us. They stopped by to bring them over, and we hung out chatting about the trip and enjoying our delicious food. I love getting Chopt salads because I can eat them for a couple of days. They are always so big!

After dinner, I unpacked and then got ready for bed. I couldn’t wait to fall asleep with the pups! I love traveling, but there’s nothing like your own bed. 
I spent all day on Tuesday editing the travel video and Disney blog! I still have part 2 and 3 to work on, but I’ll finish those later today. I snacked on random things all day and ate leftovers for dinner. I joined Kyle at the gym on Tuesday evening and did some sprint work. My sprints are usually 8.5 speed, jogs at 6.0, and my walks at 3.5 with a 5.2 incline. The jogs and sprints aren’t inclined at all.
After walking the dogs on Wednesday morning, I decided to pull my Chemex out and make some coffee. I hadn’t used it in a while, and it makes the best coffee. I had an early phone call, so I sat on the porch enjoying my coffee.
After my call, I had another cup of coffee and made some oatmeal for breakfast. I always mix in a scoop of protein powder for a protein source. I ended up adding cinnamon and raisins as well. I always use the Happy Rolled Oats. 
I finally made it to the grocery store later in the afternoon. I picked up ingredients to make salads, chili, and some of my favorite snacks.

I headed to the gym with Kyle on Wednesday evening. I did a three-mile walk on the treadmill but kept it slow because I was sore from the sprints I did on Tuesday.
I thought I’d get extra festive after blogging about the Magic Kingdom, so I made my funfetti pancakes into Micky Mouses. They were a bit of a disaster, but still tasty. I used the Birch Blender paleo pancake mix with water, sprinkles, and my protein powder. I love the “fit” Garden of Life because it has 28g of protein per serving. This is a great recovery meal after the gym!
On Thursday, I did some recipes for the blog (coming soon) and made a batch of chili to eat for the weekend. This is my favorite go-to chili recipe! I’ve had it twice a day for the past four days, and I can’t wait to have it again for dinner. It’s healthy, gluten free, dairy free, and can be made in 30-minutes. You can also make it vegan by leaving out the turkey.
I did a very exciting thing on Friday. I finally bought a new sectional, and I’m so excited for it to get here. I do love “big grey,” but it’s time for it to go. I have a charity group picking it up soon. My new couch is on backorder until December 5th, and I’m counting down the days until it arrives. I’ve wanted a new couch for a year now, and I finally found one that will work. I was looking for a specific style, size, material, color, and found it. That means I’m going to have to change a few things in my living room. I’m thinking the gold mirror, and gold lamps may have to get a makeover…we’ll see!

Once it gets here, I’ll do a big reveal! (probably during Vlogmas!)

After furniture shopping, I had lunch with my parent’s at Hickory Tavern. I ordered a spring mix salad with egg, grilled chicken, walnuts, cranberries, and avocado. I also celebrated my couch purchase with a glass of wine. Is that weird? lol
When I got home, I brought the pups two new toys. They get so excited for toys, and they end up ripping them apart and playing in the stuffing. It’s the weirdest thing, but it makes them happy. These poor little piggies 😞 I always buy them stuffed animals that are eco-friendly made with all natural materials just in case they eat some of the pieces (which they do.) 
Kyle and I met my parent’s out at the Garden Cafe, one of our favorite places to have dinner. We wanted to treat them to a little Veterans dinner to show them our appreciation. Plus, it was their 32 year anniversary! I’ve blogged about the Garden Cafe several times, but it’s truly a magical place that I love going to. I love the cozy lights, the southern feel, the delicious food, and everything about it. I also love how festive they get around the holidays. If you’re ever in the Charlotte area, you must make the drive out to this place. It’s about 35-minutes from the city, but so worth it! Just make sure to make a reservation. 
I ordered the seared salmon with green beans and rice pilaf. As always, everything tasted perfect. It was such a fun night with them! 

Saturday mornings are for tennis! 🎾 I was excited to get back out and play. Not going to lie, it was freezing. My hands were so frozen, but after a few games I finally warmed up. 
This photo cracked me up. But no way I’m going to let any ball get behind me haha! 
When I got home, I warmed up with one of my favorite drinks right now! I’m a huge fan of the peppermint mocha latte at Starbucks, but I’ve found a way to enjoy it at home. This version is a bit lighter, a whole lot cheaper, and it tastes the same! I froth my oat milk, add two shots of espresso, and three tablespoons of the Califia Farms Dairy-Free Mint Cocoa almond creamer. I’ve actually frothed the creamer with the oat milk several times, which works fine as well. I can’t get enough of this drink! Speaking of my favorite holiday Starbucks drinks, I want to make some healthier versions for Vlogmas!
For lunch, I heated my favorite chili and topped it with Kite-Hill Chive cream “cheese” and Simple Mills Multi-Grain crackers. Ohhhhhhh the deliciousness! 
After lunch, Kyle and I took Grumples for a long walk and then took Leo to Lucky Dog Brewery. He does so well with other dogs, so we wanted to socialize him a bit. I had a strawberry Lenny Boy kombucha while Leo played. I want to take him here more to get him more “social.” He hid behind my legs a lot even though you could tell he wanted to play. He would start to run around with a dog and then come right back seconds later. We’ll work on it 😃 
Later in the evening, I had a bowl of strawberries and blueberries topped with my favorite protein fruit dip. The fruit dip is coconut milk yogurt mixed with protein powder and drizzled with honey. This is a delicious combo and perfect for late night snacking. I was still full from my chili, so it was a nice light dinner. 
I could not get warm and had a headache, so I decided to take a hot bubble bath, and it seemed to do the trick. I love to do a mint face mask while I’m in the bath to open up sinus to help with seasonal headaches. 
After my bath, I popped some popcorn and watched Julia Robert’s new show, Homecoming. It’s a good show, but I don’t LOVE it. When I posted it on Instagram, I had a lot of people tell me how much they loved it and how many peopled didn’t care for it. Kyle thought it was decent; my mom was in love with it, so I think it’s one of those shows that you’ll have to judge for yourself! 
I was really excited for Sunday because Becca and I scheduled out the whole day to hang out. It’s so hard now that we live almost an hour away from each other. We had breakfast at Le Peep in the Arboretum. I ordered an egg white omelet with spinach, tomatoes, onions, and peppers. I also had a gluten-free waffle and fresh fruit on the side.

After breakfast, we did some serious thrift shopping. I can’t wait to show you what I found! I also picked up some fun crafts for Christmas at Michaels 😃 Seriously, when can I decorate? haha!  
After spending hours walking around shops, we stopped at Starbucks for some delicious treats. I ordered a skinny mocha cappuccino with an extra shot of espresso. I usually add peppermint, but I’m going to stick to my homemade peppermint mocha lattes for now! Becca and I were talking about how every time we hang out, it’s either freezing or extremely hot. But to be honest, I’m happy it’s finally sweater weather! I know I’ll be changing my mind by the end of January. 
Fall in the Carolinas! 🍂 
I left Becca’s around 4 pm and headed back to my house. When I got home, the house was spotless! Kyle went on a power cleaning spree, so I think I’m going to leave more often. He did the same when I came home from Disney. I think I’m getting the hint 😉 
I ended my Sunday night with a big bowl of chili by the fireplace. I watched some shows, and then got started on this recap post! Oh, it feels good to be back in the swing of things! ❤️  I hope you all have a fantastic week.

Questions for you!

  1. When do you put up your Christmas (holiday) decorations?
  2. Have any of your family members served? are serving? (Happy Veteran’s day to them!)
  3. What’s your favorite holiday drink?

    What couch did you buy?! I’ve been looking EVERYWHERE for a new couch and cannot seem to make a decision. It’s such an investment. I’m hoping to find a black Friday deal next week, but would love to know which one you bought.

    Our Christmas decorations are already up lol… My husband is really into Christmas and since we ‘ll be out of town for Thanksgiving we figured why not just put them up! My brother in law is a veteran and Happy Veteran’s Day to your family! Please Thank them for there service. My favorite holiday drink has to be the peppermint mocha but I like to order it as a cappuccino and get two pumps of the mocha and one of sugar free peppermint.That way its not too sweet. Plus I love foam! Trader Joes just realesed a new Cocoa Peppermint Almond Creamer that I am obsessed with though!

      I love that he’s into Christmas 😊 🌲

      Happy Veteran’s day to your BIL!

      I always get mine in cappuccino form as well. I’ll do the sugar-free mocha (one pump) and on pump of peppermint. They don’t have SF peppermint anymore.

      I may have to check out TJ soon! Wish they had one closer to me!

    Full disclosure, I already have my nutcracker collection up! lol I’ll probably put up my decorations and tree around November 25th, it’s a little early but I’ll be flying back to my hometown for twelve days and I want to enjoy them before then!

    My pepere (grandpa) served in the second world war and I have friends that are active Royal Canadian Air Force. We celebrate Remembrance Day in Canada on your Veterans day and it’s the most important day of the year for me. I miss my pepere so much and this weekend always brings him closer in my heart <3. I also work with the Royal Canadian Mounted Police so it's exciting to see all my boys dressed up in their reds, marching next to the veterans, makes my heart happy!

    EGG NOG LATTEEEEEE all day erryday! lol

      Hi, Amanda!

      That’s such a good idea! I want to put all my stuff up this weekend, but Kyle thinks we should wait until we get back from Florida and he’s probably right lol

      Happy Veterans day to all!!!

      ohhhhh yeah! I’m making a dairy-free eggnog lotte 😉

    I’m so excited to try your chili recipe. I love making turkey chili but have never thought about adding sweet potatoes. It sounds amazing!!

    I usually put up our Christmas decorations the day after Thanksgiving. It was always a tradition with my mom to go shop in the morning and then come home for Thanksgiving leftovers and Christmas decorating in the afternoon 🙂 They stay up until New Year’s!

    My uncle was in the Air Force, my great-grandfather served in World War II in the Coast Guard, my parents-in-law were both Army, brother-in-law is a Marine, and many many friends who are serving overseas in all branches! We LOVE our military and Veterans!

    My favorite holiday drink is the Chestnut Praline! While most people wait all year for the PSL I can’t wait for it to be gone so CPL can take it’s place. It’s SO yummy!

    I also noticed your EarthFare bags. We are finally getting an EarthFare in our town opening in the next couple months and I am so excited! I love my Publix, but we don’t have anything like Whole Foods or Trader Joes or EarthFare in my area so I have to really search to make sure the products I’m buying are healthy and organic. I have my Publix shopping down and knowing the best deals and things to look for, any EarthFare shopping tips? I’ve never been in one I just know it’s like a more affordable WholeFoods? More similar to Trader Joes I assume. (I’ve never been in any of these stores so I don’t really know LOL)

      oh and one more thing…sign up for their emails!!!!

      ok, a couple more things…they do a military discount on Thursdays so tell your family! AND…..look out for their meat sales.

      Hi, Olivia!

      The sweet potatoes add so much to the chili! You’ll be hooked!

      That is awesome! I know I’ll be putting mine up too 😃

      HAHAHA I’ve never had that one. May have to try it!

      I wouldn’t say it’s more affordable than Whole Foods but they do have a lot of products you can get that your normal grocery store won’t sell. Make sure to always cut coupons from their monthly magazines and sign up for a tomato bank account! You can get points and put them towards your groceries! Earthfare has a lot of amazing seasonal products to look out for!

    Loved the post! Your chili looks amazing and I am super excited to try it out.
    1. I have a rule about decorating for Christmas… it needs to be after Thanksgiving. I am all about Christmas and I can’t wait to start decorating, but I have to enjoy Thanksgiving and the remainder of Fall first!
    2. Both of my grandfathers served in WWII in the Navy. My mom’s dad was a radar-man on a Naval destroyer, and my dad’s dad worked on landing strips out in the pacific. I’m am so proud of them!
    3. I am actually a barista at Starbucks and a full time nursing student. My favorite holiday drink would probably be the peppermint mocha as well. I usually stick with lighter and less sugary drinks, but it’s nice to treat yourself once in a while 😄🎄🎅🏼

    I cannot wait to make that chili! Chili and cornbread are my staples in the Fall. Chili makes the perfect leftovers!

    1. We always put up our Christmas decorations on Black Friday only because my parent’s house looks like Fall threw-up everywhere until Thanksgiving 🙂

    2. So thankful for the kind people like your parents and brother who have served/are serving our country! <3

    3. Favorite fall drink is anything peppermint mocha so I will have to try that Califia Farms creamer!

    Have a wonderful week!!

    P.S. I love that striped sweater!!!! So cute!!!

    P.P.S I cannot wait for VLOGMAS!!

      If you love the peppermint mocha latte, you MUST try the at-home one!

    I usually hold off decorating for Christmas until Black Friday. Halloween is my favorite holiday but during the dark, cold months I live for mini lights, cinnamon pine oil melts, and instrumental holiday music every-single-night. I have a few veterans in my family, husband included. And my favorite holiday drink is a chocolate chai latte. 🙂

    We have a strict “no Christmas in the house until the day after Thanksgiving” rule. My husband and my tradition has always been that on our drive home from wherever we had our Thanksgiving dinner we can officially turn on Christmas music. The only difference is this year we might be in the hospital on Thanksgiving…I’m due with our first baby in the next week or so, so we’ll see!

    I’ve been seeing that Homecoming show but I wasn’t sure if it was worth it. My husband and I just started Bodyguard last night and so far we love it! It’s definitely been keeping our attention. I think you mentioned you and Kyle watched that too?

    Reply to Samantha Bunker
    • Taralynn McNitt

      I lived by that rule until last year! I love coming home after my Thanksgiving trip to a house filled with Christmas decor lol But you’re doing it the right way and “eating the damn turkey first” as my dad would say haha!

      AHHH You’re going to have the BEST LITTLE TURKEY ever!!! I’ll keep you in my prayers for a safe and easy delivery! How exciting!

      Lol yes! He did watch Bodyguard and loved it! I think I fell off on the last few episodes!

    I started putting up Christmas decorations November 1st haha and just finished this past week. I told my roommates I was going all out, don’t think they believed me until it was finished. My favorite holiday drink is just black coffee with peppermint mocha coffee creamer. Although, I’ve been looking for an alternative because the brand of creamer I buy is about as far from healthy as it gets, definitely going to have to try the almond milk one! As always, love your recap posts! Thanks for doing what you do, such a huge inspiration! Hope you have a fantastic week! 🙂

    I like to decorate the day after Thanksgiving (or that weekend) one of our neighbors starts decorating on Thanksgiving and he goes ALL out, it’s so awesome.

    No one in my immediate family served, but friends have.

        In the past few days she’s just been tearing up toys that have stuffing, so we have a target bag FULL of the cotton just to pick it up when it happens. I could make another stuffed animal with all the stuffing we have. But then she would destroy it and we would be back at square one.

    My husband is an army vet, so I made him brownies last night. Thanks for recognizing the tough times in California right now– I’m not facing the brunt of it here in San Diego, but I can tell you we’re all sick from breathing in smoke combined with the Santa Ana winds.

    I wanted to tell you that I made your chili last night as part of my Sunday meal prep! SO GOOD! I used a combo of ground turkey and hot Italian sausage for added spice, and added pasilla peppers. I’ll be eating this all week!

    I LOVE peppermint mochas but I haven’t seen the Califia mint cocoa yet- only the egg nog version. Will absolutely try that when I see it. Thanks! Love your recaps. 🙂

    Since it’s our first Christmas in the new house and celebrating Christmas together, we decided to wait until Black Friday to start decorating. I don’t mind because I just recently made a gorgeous fall wreath that I’m hanging proudly so I want to enjoy that a little longer! Do you guys get a real tree or a fake tree? I want a real tree so badly, but with two crazy kitties now, we are going to have to get a fake one. My favorite holiday drink was at my grandpa’s house last year–some kind of red sangria with fresh cranberries and orange slices! I hope you have a great week! xoxo Kelsey

        My relationship is the same way…my boyfriend almost never drinks. I also almost never drink (once a month or once every two months, maybe), but I will splurge occasionally when i’m out with my girlfriends. But I tell people I have other “vices” and those are DESSERTS! I’d rather have dessert than a glass of wine and i’m okay with that.

    My family tend to participate in decorating our home for Christmas year on, year off. We live in a TINY apartment (300 sq ft?), so we don’t really have any storage space for a tree – real or fake – or decorations. If we’re not decorating for Christmas (which seems like the case this year), we just go out to see all the public lights and decor! 🙂
