Halloween Swap


On Friday I had the day off and stayed home and completed my swap project for Jenny from Everyday is a Holiday. I am so pleased with the way it came out! I will be posting pictures as soon as I receive her swap piece for me. I am so excited! I have been a fan of her artwork and blog for awhile now. Her posts are funny and inspirational, check out her site, it is linked in the list of my favorite places.
Yesterday I spent the day with my mom, we had a great time! We went over to our local craftie store and it was packed! I couldn't believe all of the people! You can tell Fall is in the air, the aisles were jammed with women with tons of fall decorations bursting from their carts. Needless to say, we got in and got out. It was craziness!
Today I spent the day cooking, one of my favorite things to do. I made a big pot of my mom's homemade chicken noodle soup and some rustic marinara sauce for a supper later this week. For dessert I made the most AMAZING banana sour cream cake(with a name like that how can it be bad????) from a recipe I found in Kraft Food and Family magazine. It turned out so good, I just had to take a picture of it! Also, I was so proud to serve it on my great grandmother's cake plate, so beautiful. My husband is having a hard time keeping his fingers out of the cream cheese frosting...I can't blame him, it is so good!
