Yea, we did it – made it through the first week of school!
It wasn’t easy; especially since we went cold turkey on our back to school bedtime/wake up routine. (Took a last-minute camping trip to our favorite campground – and “partied” up ’til the last day, lol!)
For the 1st few days, our 6:15 wake up time went pretty well, but by Friday I’ll admit to hitting that snooze button at least twice. Hopefully, over the next few, weeks we’ll become better accustomed to the early morning rise and shine routine.
As for the 1st day itself, my missy told me her day was the “bomb dot com.” (Later, when I told her it was bedtime, she said she was “gonna go put on her P to the J’s.” Evidently, there’s a new language in 5th grade.)
No homework for the middle schoolers yet, so the 1st week went great for my 7th grader too, although I’m a little concerned about how next week’s going to go!
To help make our 1st day of school the best day, I took advantage of all the free printables from the Best Day List on the Seatle’s Best Coffee® page.
We did the best Day Q and A, made the apple craft for my missy’s teacher and used the lunch box love notes and photo prop printables for our 1st-day pictures. (The apple craft is adorable, be sure and download it!)
If you haven’t started school yet, be sure to download all the fun printables here. If school is already in session for you, the lunch box love notes are sweet addition anytime!
To make your back to school routine the best ever, you’ll want to upgrade your morning cup of coffee with Seattle’s Best Coffee®. Hubby and I both enjoy the smooth taste of Seattle’s Best especially since it’s always at a great low price. (It only costs a little more than our regular brands, so it’s like a free upgrade on our cup of coffee!)

Now, If you are anything like me and are excited about that first taste of fall, you’re going to LOVE this Easy Homemade Pumpkin Spice Latte Recipe I’m sharing today.
This pumpkin spice latte recipe is amazing both hot and cold, so if it’s still too warm for hot coffee, you can enjoy it over ice too. Use whatever type milk you prefer (the higher the fat, the richer and more delicious it will be.) The recipe makes enough for 2 large servings, but it is perfect for doubling and tripling too. Just store it in an airtight container in the fridge and it will be good for a couple of days. (You may need to give it a shake as the pumpkin will settle towards the bottom once cooled.)
Now that you have opened that 1st can of pumpkin, here are a few more pumpkin recipes you might like:
- Whipped Pumpkin Cream Cheese Recipe
- Low Carb Pumpkin Pie Granola Recipe
- Baked Pumpkin Oatmeal
- Pumpkin Pie Bread Pudding with Caramel Sauce
- The recipe is perfect to double or triple.
- Use whatever milk you prefer.
- Want to make this low carb? It works great with heavy cream or half n half and your favorite sugar substitute. (I tried it )
- This recipe is on the less sweet side – this way you can adjust to taste before you drink it and it’s absolutely perfect if you top it with sweetened whipped cream and caramel sauce!
- To cool the Pumpkin Spice mixture quickly, (for iced lattes) place sauce pan in an ice bath and whisk till cool. (This will only take a short time.)
- Using a K-cup? Brew it extra strong by using less water than normal.
