We're moving into our new apartment tomorrow! We've got a bit of my office to pack up tonight, a few more dishes and a tad bit of the basement and then we'll be ready to go! We were suppose to move in next weekend but things speed up a ton and we're getting the u-haul tonight!

We are moving right into the River District/Warehouse District! Makes it sound pretty fancy, eh?

Y'all, I've got so many plans for this apartment! I just can't wait!

15 Pumpkin Flavored Desserts

The Pumpkins are out in the stores and they've been staring at me for the past few weeks.

I'm waiting until we move into the new apartment before I buy any but I've had pumpkin on the brain non-stop!

I know we're all about Halloween stuff right now but pumpkins and Halloween go hand in hand, don't they! Of course they do!

Bacon and Artichoke Risotto

Tuesday, September 29, 2015

This is a sponsored post written by me on behalf of Campbell’s Soup Company for IZEA. All opinions are 100% mine.

Thomas and I have two completely different views when it comes to making risotto. I like to take my time when I'm preparing a risotto to go along with our dinner.

I want to stand in the kitchen and stir the rice while it absorbs the chicken broth. I look forward to the smell of the chicken broth simmering on the stove while I ladle it into the pot of toasted rice.

I want to add the different ingredients one at a time and make sure that they're all cooking the way I want them to.

Slow Cooker Loaded Potato and Shrimp Chowder

Monday, September 28, 2015

The past couple of days have been cold and rainy here in southern Virginia. While I did embrace summer this year, I am kind of glad that it's starting to cool off. While rain isn't normally my weather of choice I think I'll take a few days of rain to help me unwind and relax.

We've had a rough couple of days around here and we all just need some time to stay in our PJs, curl up on the couch, binge watch TV and indulge in comfort foods like this Slow Cooker Loaded Potato and Shrimp Chowder.
