How was your weekend? Glorious fall weather here….finally! I am wrapping up our plans to go to DC later this week. The kids haven’t been there yet…so we thought to take the couple days of fall break to go see some sites.
Last week I held my annual ugly dress party. It was a whole bunch of fun and always a good few laughs! I served these little Italian wraps and everybody seemed to really like them! They could not have been easier and I will definitely be making them again! It’s really not even a recipe but I thought maybe if you hadn’t seen these or thought of this before you might like to serve it up at your fall get together. I’m sure they pair great with wine doesn’t everything though!?
Well, I held my 5th “So NO to the Dress” party for my bunco group last night. If you are new here…you can read all about this party and it’s past here….It is a great reason to be silly and laugh a whole bunch. I am sure I will be sharing some pics next week. I’m the hippy on the bottom right;)
I don’t know if it’s something that I notice because I work in the kitchen the most or if it’s just something that women in general notice more than men…. but in my house I tend to notice how bright a room is a little bit more than my husband. The yellow cast of light in our kitchen was annoying to me. I’m sure when these recessed lights were installed the electrician just put in cheapest light bulbs that were available. So I went on a little bit of research and ended up finding a really good deal on some LCD recessed lighting from Amazon. This light bulb had really good reviews and it was priced very well in comparison to the big home improvement stores. I decided to take a leap of faith and test out some for our kitchen.

Hey guys! Hope you had a wonderful fall weekend! Hubs and I celebrated all weekend long in Chicago….came home well rested and bags full of loot:) Wanted to share a fun Halloween craft today….have a great day!
Hershey’s and Halloween go hand in hand. When they asked me to come up with a fun little craft to do for Halloween I gladly agreed. This little countdown chain would be a fun weekend or classroom craft. I think the kiddos will have a great time making these….and enjoying them too!
A few years back my friend Brittany made up the cutest chalkboard pumpkins. She painted a chevron pattern all around the sides and then in the middle she painted a large chalkboard oval that you could write fun Halloween messages on. It was a big hit at her kiddos fall festival.
That was my inspiration for my fall porch this year. I grabbed a few pumpkins and some black and white paint and went to town! These polka dots are so easy the novice crafter can do it….I promise! You just need the right size brush….if you can spin a top….then you can paint perfect polka dots. Easy!
