October roundup and 3 month blogoversary


Happy October! I hope you have all had an amazing month so far.  Are you all set for Halloween? Have you started fall baking? I’ve already over indulged in soup making, and really, it hasn’t been cold enough it, but I couldn’t help myself.

So, here are my October haps…

Personal Milestones

  • pumpkinsI got a couple of pumpkins, like everyone else.  However, I had to throw one out because it rotted melted in the unseasonable heat.
  • I FINALLY bought curtains for my guest bedroom. You have no idea how large of an issue finding curtains has been. They haven’t arrived yet, so I am still mildly pessimistic about the whole thing.
  • I made sea salt caramels (from Sally’s Baking Addiction) the flavor was good, but the consistency was off. So, not exactly a success.caramel

Blog Milestones

So, what’s next for November?  Well, for one, this is before Halloween, so I guess we need to do that first.  Once it finally is November, I am hosting Thanksgiving.  I’m also thinking of doing a ‘dry-run’ of Thanksgiving with some friends to try out new Thanksgiving recipes.  I really want to try making stuffing muffins.  What else is going to happen? Who knows, but hopefully it’s great!


  1. Have you ever hosted Thanksgiving?
  2. What were your milestones this month?
  3. What’s your favorite Thanksgiving dessert? I need some inspiration.

  1. Congrats on 3 months of blogging! Good luck hosting Thanksgiving. I have never hosted Thanksgiving, although my husband and I did host Christmas once where we made a turkey dinner. Our stuffing turned out awful – don’t mix it in a Kitchen Aid mixer. Who knew?! 🙂

    My favorite Thanksgiving dessert is pie – apple and pumpkin. But every year I am tempted to replace the pumpkin pie with pumpkin cheesecake. Yum!

    1. I know Thanksgiving just doesn’t feel right without pie, but I think I’d like a non-pie option as well. The problem is there are too many tasty looking things in the magazines and on blogs!!!
