Autumn Bliss

The weather is starting the get chillier and it's raining orange, red and yellow leaves outside...that's right it's that beautiful time of year again! My favourite season...AUTUMN!!! Honestly who doesn't love how beautiful it is outside! So to honour this beautiful, wonderful, grateful-filled season, I made some homemade Applesauce with cranberry scones!!!

The recipes I found over at one of my favourite blogs --- Skinnytaste. I'm serious, Gina's Skinny Recipes are absolutely amazing and perfect for those who are like me and wanting to lose a little...ok....a lot of weight before the season of moresweetsthenthewaistwillallowalongwithemptyresolutionswedon'tintendtokeep season...aka the Holiday season, in case any of you didn't understand my crazy mind thought. :)

Who needs scented candles when you have apple, cinnamon and cranberries cooking up in your kitchen.

 You can find the scone recipe I used if you follow this link ---> over here
And the Glorious in your mouth Applesauce you can find over here

You'll thank me for directing you over to her after you taste your goodies!! I'll wait right here as you bake...

I mean look at how pretty the scones look!

But if you're not careful....or distracted...they'll be all gone...I blame the kitchen gnomes...

Enjoy the beauty of the season!

Look Whoo's Having a Baby

So the long weekend has passed and it was a busy one for our household.One of my closest friends is just about ready to pop, so during the long weekend I threw her an owl themed baby shower! Cute, right? Unfortunately, I forgot I was so busy entertaining that I didn't pull out my trusty camera earlier I took a picture of the almost empty well enjoyed buffet and the dessert table.

Can you believe I didn't realize the backdrop wasn't centered and pinned creatively until I uploaded my pictures. Truly the testament of a busy woman.

 So when the women walked in, they grabbed a felt flower (I'll try to get a picture of it posted soon) and wrote their names on the attached piece of paper. Then they filled out 'Fill-in the Blank' baby advice cards. After a good afternoon of food, coffee, juice and desserts everyone left with their own mini apple, pumpkin or pecan pies. (Made by yours truly). I could not be happier with how everything turned out and I'm glad the mommy-to-be and daddy-to-be enjoyed themselves.
I can't wait to meet the Little bean!
