Welcome to the weekend, my friends! Sean and I are in Denver this weekend with our middle son. We’re celebrating Ben’s 13th birthday with a “teen” trip, just like we did with his older brother Sam two years ago. We are headed out to explore Cave of the Winds today and he’s pretty excited about that.

Have you entered the cheeseboard giveaway? All you have to do is share a photo of a plate with cheese on it with #barefeetkitchencheeseplates on Instagram or Facebook and you’ll be entered to win. And seriously, slap a piece of cheese on a plate and take a photo. It doesn’t have to be anything fancy.

ON THE BLOG this week: ‘Tis the season for pumpkin and we are loving this Pumpkin Pie Oatmeal with Whipped Cream. I think my boys would eat this oatmeal every day of the year, if they could.

Italian White Bean, Cabbage, and Sausage Soup is a family favorite as well. I’ll be making another big batch this week to stash in the freezer.

What I’m CRAVING: I’ve never made a Classic French Onion Soup and this one by That Skinny Chick Can Bake is on my list to make soon. And these Zucchini Rollatini by Skinnytaste look absolutely divine. Last but not least, these Cranberry Goat Cheese Scones by Savory Simple sound fantastic.

My FAVORITE THING this week is this travel steamer (link HERE). We took this with us on our trip to Europe and it was amazing for quick clothing touchups. We didn’t iron anything that whole trip and it only took a few minutes to steam things as we needed them.

What I’m READING: Girl, Wash Your Face by Rachel Hollis (link HERE). I am really REALLY not a self-help book reading kind of girl, however, I’ve been told about this book endlessly over the past 6 months. So, I finally downloaded it last night and I’m planning to check it out next week. Have you read it? What did you think?

Wishing you a beautiful week full of little things that make you smile!
