I seriously break out the twinkle lights anytime I can! I have been in a happy mood these past days since I am feeling a little bit better and everything around me is starting to turn to the fall season. I see it every where. It was a cool fall night.. It cooled down.. right now its 65. We should be sleeping with the windows open. It was dark early and right before the sunset.. the wind picked up and leaves started blowing around. It was l beautiful and I just took in that moment..
Even for dinner it was a fall comforting meal..
Chicken n Dumplings
Both Jackson and Scott loved it. Scott ate 2 bowls. I made it with the left overs from the roasted chicken meal last night. This recipe is super easy, super fast, and so comforting. Easy store bought biscuits for the dumplings.. and if my picky 9 year old loves it.. then its a hit! I didn't make anything else with it. I do like serving it up with mashed potatoes but I was too lazy tonight. We have a lot left over so I am planning on eating it again on Thursday.. and I will make the mashed potatoes then.
For dessert we had some yummy...
chocolate cake and ice cream.. OH MY.. DELICIOUS. I LOVE cake and ice cream. Jackson loves it too! It was pretty quiet around here come 9pm. I got the kitchen really cleaned and enjoyed a long hot bath all while both boys drifted off to sleep. The house looks so pretty at night when the lights are out. The twinkle lights, candles, and night lights just make our house feel so cozy and comforting.
I should be working on some posts for tomorrow but its too late and I am too sleepy. I have a few things left to do tonight which include packing up Jackson's backpack, and making the coffee. Tomorrow I need to clean up as much as I can around here. I also will be getting up the giveaway in the afternoon/evening hours!! So be sure to come back and get entered!
Also tomorrow we have the big link up coming of the coffee mug swap!! I can't wait to see all the bloggers posts who participated.. exciting!! And it will be the first time I actually see how well the coffee mug I had made looks! So be on the look out for that post tomorrow too.
Tomorrow also includes a trip the market... with coupons.. which makes it take a bit longer. So its going to be a busy day around here. I will probably go shopping in the late evening.. because its a late night for Scott. And homework. Yikes..I guess I need to wake up early and stay awake to get it all done... so sweet dreams.
Have a great Monday!
