When I was young, I dreamed of being a wife and mother. I am blessed to live that dream every single day along with my husband Steve, our four children, one son-in-law and two precious pups.

Hey there!
Hi! I'm Billie Jo, a wife to one and mother to four who loves all things home and family. During the day I homeschool, do laundry, and drink way excessive amounts of coffee. I would much rather read than exercise, and I am blessed to live the life I dreamed of.

Monday Morning Coffee


Good morning, my friends! I thought I would share my current favorite cup of coffee this morning. I find it perfectly pumpkiny for this time of year. I start with Starbucks Pumpkin Spice ground coffee, add some Hint of Pumpkin Spice Almond MIlk, then sprinkle a tiny bit of Pumpkin Pie Spice on top. A quick stir and I am all set to start my day.

Today includes schooling with Flynn, several loads of laundry, and putting some delicious chicken in the crockpot for tonight's dinner of shredded chicken sandwiches. I will link the recipe down below. Have a wonderful Monday, my friends! Thanks for stopping by.

Oh, and Peggy asked about my coffee cups recently. These adorable Halloween ones are Portobello By Design. I found them a couple years ago at T.J. Maxx, but have seen them other places, including Amazon. I love them!


  1. Loveeeeeee the cups, smiles... and laughing over the witch and the blood type, smiles. Have a beautiful day friend.

  2. I'm sending you a virtual "clink" of my coffee mug this morning, my friend! But before I take a sip I'm going to sprinkle some pumpkin pie spice on top because that is the best idea I've heard all day: )
    Happy Monday! ♥

  3. I don't think I have ever drunk pumpkin spice anything.. just not my thing I guess.
    That coffee cup is cute!

  4. Yum! And I love your new coffee maker :)

  5. Yes, a second virtual clink. I am having pumpkins n spice coffee this morning too. :) I hope your day is as productive as you want it to be.

  6. Hi Billie Jo!

    Love pumpkin spice! I like to drink it and eat it! The coffee mug is adorable!


  7. I have wanted to try the pumpkin spice coffee....you have now inspired me to do so. Happy Tuesday!

  8. I just love your coffee space, Billie Jo. And that cup of coffee sounds so good. I've been trying to get the pumpkin spice at the store, but they don't have it, so I'll have to take a trip to Starbuck's to get some. Your cup is delightful. Wishing you a cozy and beautiful week, Billie Jo.


  9. Your coffee looks just perfect for the cool fall weather. Hope you've had a wonderful week so far.
