October was very exciting around here!  We moved into our new blog home and had a fun housewarming giveaway.  It was so fun and exciting that we just couldn’t get our Top 5 done on our normal first Sunday of the month.  But here it is today in all it’s shiny goodness!

Not as pretty, but knowing how to easily make chicken stock in your crockpot is very useful!  It’s also very economical and you control everything that’s in your chicken stock this way.  Plus it’s freezable!  If you missed this post be sure and check it out!

Fleece Earflap Hat

I love this post!  Not just because of the super cute kiddos (sigh), but it almost makes me want to whip out my sewing machine and make some for my kids too!  They look easy enough and Jamie did a fantastic job on the ones for her kids.   Big thank you to The Jenny Evolution for featuring this post.

Almond Chicken 1

Almond Chicken

I love how delicious this look!  While I love baking, cooking dinner isn’t my forte. But Kerry always inspires me with her tasty meals. And I’m sure my family would love it if I would cook some of them!
