For as much as I love holidays, I have a confession to make....

I have zero Halloween decorations up.  I blame the boy. 

Ok, that's probably not fair, but oh well I am blaming him anyway.  Here is the deal - when I lived with Kyndra she had a bunch of awesome fall / Halloween decorations, so I didn't have to worry about it.  Now that I live with the boy, I have to train him to love Holiday Cheer as much as I do.... Which means I may have to make a special shopping trip this weekend (like I need an excuse to shop)! Nothing tacky, just a few cute things here and there. Get a few fall candles, maybe glitter a pumpkin.

Also, that reminds me. I must put in a maintenance request so we can get our front door light fixed.  I want the kiddos to feel welcome on Halloween night! (I have a lot of candy and I don't want to be forced to eat it all because no one shows up).  That's a lie, I don't want to share.  Thanks for reminding me, guys.

In an attempt to make up for the fact that I have been lacking in the decorations department I have been cooking very fall-like this week, if that counts?!

Tuesday we made this crock pot dish.

Simple and delish. 

Then last night we made this honey-apple pork crock pot lovely. 

Apples: yum. Honey: yum. Pork: yum.

And for dessert we made Trader Joe's Pumpkin Bread with the addition of chocolate chips. My friend Tyler told me that was the secret ingredient that took it to the next level and I never turn down chocolate goodness. - plus now we have extra chocolate chips lying around the apartment and I love a handful here and there :) 

The website says it's Kosher Certified, so you know it's good. 

Cheeeeeers to Candy and Pumpkins and Apples and Honey and Halloween!

do yourself a favor and get one. So easy to get the CP ready the night before and let it cook during the day. Plus, pinterest has a lot of great (and healthy) options for meals!
