Christy's Wishlist

Hey, Everyone! I decided that I would share my Fall wish list.

         I love this whole outfit. It is a definite must have.
I have to have a cute hat each year.Side Bow Knit Beanie
The bow accent to the side just makes this look.

OWL SHELF EARRINGSOwls are hot this season a little cute pair of earrings or a necklace is a good way to wear this trend.

I am in love with this sequin top, it's glam with the comfort of a sweatshirt.

I am so ready for a shopping trip.

Love, Christy

Slow Cooker Cheesy Potato Soup

Doesn’t this sound yummy on a cold and rainy day??? I have had some highs and lows with recipes off of Pinterest, but this was definitely a HIGH! It was simple, yet delicious. It also makes a ton! We are planning on freezing what we had leftover, but will feed a crowd if you need something.

Pinned Image


1 bag (32 oz) frozen southern-style diced hash brown potatoes, thawed
1/2 cup frozen chopped onion (from 12-oz bag), thawed
1 medium stalk celery, diced (1/2 cup)
1 carton (32-oz) Progresso® chicken broth
1 cup water
3 tablespoons Gold Medal® all-purpose flour
1 cup milk
1 bag (8 oz) shredded American-Cheddar cheese blend (2 cups)
1/4 cup real bacon pieces (from 2.8-oz package)
4 medium green onions, sliced (1/4 cup)


1. In 3- to 4-quart slow cooker, mix potatoes, onion, celery, broth and water.
2. Cover; cook on Low heat setting 6 to 8 hours.
3. In small bowl, mix flour into milk; stir into potato mixture. Increase heat setting to High. Cover; cook 20 to 30 minutes or until mixture thickens. Stir in cheese until melted. Garnish individual servings with bacon and green onions. Sprinkle with pepper if desired.

This is a Betty Crocker recipe, so of course it is going to be good! Also sorry about not posting last Tuesday! I was on vacation!!! Read about it here!

October Wednesday! Favorite costumes ever.

I am a nut for making my kids halloween costumes ever year. I wanted to share all my favorites with ya'll. Harley was Frankenstein when he was 3 yrs. old and everyone loved this homemade version of a classic.
Halloween Costume: Frankenstein
Materials: Plastic gallon milk jug; craft knife; hot- glue gun; 2 milk jug caps; green spray paint; garden gloves; scissors; black sweatpants; paintbrush; red; black T-shirt; ½ yard of burlap fabric or felt; long-sleeve green shirt; green socks ;2 Kleenex boxes; 2 yards of heavy jute twine; green facepaint
1. For headpiece, cut off top of milk jug, just below handle. Cut each side of jug bottom so it fits on top of childs head.
2. Glue caps to sides of headpiece.
3. Paint headpiece and gloves green; let dry
4. Cut about 3 inches of material from bottom of each leg of sweatpants. Cut fringe on one edge of this excess fabric to make hair. Glue hair to top of headpiece.
5. Paint red scar on headpiece; let dry.
6. Fray bottom of legs of sweatpants and sleeves of T-shirt.
7. To make tunic, fold burlap in half; cut hole in center of folded edge to fit child’s head. Pull threads from all edges of burlap.
8. About 15 inches down from folded edge, cut small holes in front and back of tunic on each side.
9. Dress child in sweatpants, green shirt, black T- shirt, socks and shoes. Put burlap tunic on child; thread twine through holes on sides and tie in front or back.
10. Paint child’s face green. Place headpiece on head.
11. Paint 2 kleenex boxes black, before putting on shoes place feet through top of boxes, then put shoes on feet, gives the effect of square feet.

I promise this is a head turning costume and lots of fun. Tune in next week for another costume idea.

Simple Fall Decor

I LOVE all of the over the top Fall décor that is floating around the internet and blog land. In my dream world, my house would also look the same way. However, working full time, being a mother, and wife, it is just not possible. That does not include Christmas! I go ALL out!  Anyway, below is my simple Fall décor. I basically only decorated a table in the living room and dining room table.

Entry table in the Living Room: Pumpkin and green  glass containers are from Hobby Lobby, leaf plate is from Wal-Mart last season, and rectangular glass vase I have had for years. Andrew and I had so much picking acorns for the vase!


This wreath is hanging on the cabinets beside the fridge. I have had it for years and do not remember where I bought it. The pumpkin on the island is also from Hobby Lobby several years ago.


This is the dining room: Candle holders were in the bedroom, but they were relocated and replaced with orange candles. The pumpkin is from Michaels and I pushed the flowers through the top a few years ago.


Simple, short, and EASY to pack away for Christmas décor!!

So, do you like to go all out or keep it simple for Fall?
