Thank you so much for linking up so far this month, I hope you'll be back again today. I've loved reading through every post. The cuteness, and the festiveness just gives me the warm fuzzies. October is such a good month. I can't believe it is less than two weeks until Halloween already, the final stretch. I hope you've enjoyed counting down as much as I have!
If you didn't get a chance to hop around to all the posts last week, here are five of my favourites...
Tuesdays are my favourite days this month. Reading all the linked posts throughout my day is the best. So, grab a button, add your post at the bottom, and have fun!
Here is how we spent our third week of October!
apple pie smoothie was better than the pumpkin pie one, but sadly it also ended up being dumped. It was like drinking watered down yet chunky applesauce. Gross.
overnight pumpkin pie oatmeal the night before. I felt all productive and on top of my shit. It tasted like glue. Actually it felt like glue, it wasn't the taste that was so bad. But, it was like eating super dry sticky glue. Aria had a couple of bites, but preferred her pears. Is that how overnight oatmeal normally tastes? bad.
pumpkin cinnamon roll after nap time. Much better than the overnight oatmeal.
instagram you may have seen my failed attempt at roasting stupid chickpeas. Those blackened balls of death were suppose to go on top of this smoked gruyere butternut soup. And, I bet it would have been awesome. The soup alone was good, but it was also intense. Like sipping on cheese fondue. So, roast your chickpeas at your own peril...and perhaps check on those suckers more often.
last week? We did fall leaves this week! Four colours of tissue paper, and same method using wax paper and glue. I love how cute and toddler like the back doors look now.
Andiamo I had to make a fall hand wreath! Thank goodness Aria is totally cool with having her hand painted, because it took us 30 minutes on the nose to stamp all those prints. I cut out a hoop from a cardboard box and glued on the hands during nap time. Then Aria picked where she wanted it to go, in her room on the door! Whenever she sees it she says hands, hands. I think it might be my favourite craft so far this month, the hand turkey is a close second though.
paprikash for dinner, and Chris said I had to include it in my countdown because it is orange. So festive fall orange paprikash! mmm I wish there was still some leftover.
Clifford one on repeat throughout the entire month, so I think she liked it. But we enjoyed all the rest except The Best Halloween Masquerade Ever, and I only say that because I don't remember getting around to reading it. Room on the Broom is my particular favourite this year though.
Pumpkin waffles day! Two thumbs up. I'm not sure if I like my favourite basic waffle recipe or this one better now. A delicious dilemma.
slow cooker tomato basil parmesan soup.
I will leave you with one little gem though. You may know that I sing carols to Aria before nap and bed time, but since it is getting closer to Halloween I've been trying to give it a more festive and seasonal twist. So, "Five days of Halloween" - on the first day of Halloween my true love gave to me a kittycat in a pricklebush tree/ on the second day of halloween my true love gave to me two flying bats and a kittycat in a pricklebush tree/ on the third day of Halloween my true love gave to me three jack-o-lanterns..../ on the fourth day of Halloween my true love gave to me four dancing skeletons..../ on the fifth day of Halloween my true love gave to me five golden cauldrons....
Just two more recaps remaining, and I still have lots of fun things on the calendar. All the treating events are coming up now, more soups to try, more crafts to make, and I saved a couple potentially amazing breakfasts for the end too. Now I'm hungry.
So, now it is your turn. I'd love to hear about how you've been spending your October days. All festive and fun fall things big and small welcome, link up below!
