Finally ready for October!

love decorating for any holiday! Last year I was pretty busy with wedding planning (and realistically, no room to bring one more box out of storage) so I didn’t do a whole lot of decorating.

Well – wedding is over, time is all I have (haha) and I got in the decorating spirit!! (which translates to: I have a lot of work to do and this is an awesome way to procrastinate). 

So – here’s some pictures of how we are celebrating this October – fall and Halloween!

Fall wreath! Love it!

This picture really isn’t the best – but there’s a surprise Stella!

Anyone else think it’s weird I was able to up-cycle a ton of my wedding decorations as Halloween decorations?? 

 

Finished off the night with some warm soup, beer bread, and a Woodchuck Pumpkin cider. Delicious!

Started with a soup mix, then added more!

  • Bear Creek Cheddar Potato Soup
  • 3 potatoes, diced small
  • 1 can white kidney beans
  • 1 large white onion
  • 1 package bacon bits
  • shredded cheddar cheese

Sat in the crockpot for about 7 hours! So easy to manipulate and make yours!

Bread:

Started from this recipe, very easy!

  • 3 cups organic all-purpose flour
  • 1 Tablespoon granulated sugar
  • 1 Tablespoon baking powder (make sure it’s fresh!)
  • 1 teaspoon salt – (as I wrote this up, I realized I forgot this – makes a lot of sense…)
  • Garlic powder
  • Parmesan cheese
  • Italian seasoning (no, I didn’t measure any of these)

Bake in oven at 375 for 45 minutes, let cool for 10!
