October in Review

Wow, it’s already Halloween? I swear time is going by faster and faster every month. I can’t even fathom that Thanksgiving is just 3 weeks away and then the Holidays are officially here. Craziness.

I also want to take a few seconds and welcome all of the new followers this month! It’s been a busy month and I can’t thank everyone enough for all of the support and encouragement. I love reading all of your comments and emails :)

Now here’s what you missed:

We started out the month with a round up of some fun football treats…

…then I kicked off the series of pumpkin recipes with a yummy gluten-free pumpkin bread recipe…

…next up was my not-so-fun reveal of my family room curtains that didn’t pan out (the family room is coming along quite nicely now though! These were just a small hiccup, can’t wait to show you all of the fun changes)…

… it was time for some more inspiration, so I shared some amazing fall mantels to be inspired by…

… and just when I thought I was doing better with not eating so many sweets, I had to make some gluten-free peanut butter cookies

… and who doesn’t love the pallet craze going on? I had to share some fabulous pallet projects I’d discovered across blog land (and yes, my garage is still filled with pallets. I’m still working on that big project)…

…next I finally revealed a sneak peak at some of the family room progress with my sconce transformation

… and I know it’s officially Halloween today, but you still have time to make some fun Halloween treats for tonight’s festivities…

…and lastly, here is my 2nd pumpkin recipe of the season. If you want something that taste like a ‘pumpkin Cinnabon’ try thesegluten-free pumpkin cupcakes!

Have a fun and safe Halloween! Catch ya tomorrow…
