I Smell Fall In The Air . . . Welcome Fall!

Happy Fall everyone❤I don't know what it is about Fall, but I get so excited. My kids come home again  It's always the best when they're around.  Love hearing them talk and laugh with each other again. I get to cook and bake for them in the new kitchen too . . . LOL! Rexy and I have work so hard on this house and we finally will be able to share it with family and friends. I still have a few pieces of furniture I have to recover, towels for the bathrooms and bedding/drapery for the bedroom and we are about done with this house.  Loving my Pinterest, I found this pic of this beautiful pie.  This year I think I might want to attempt to make one.  I'm 59 years old and have never made a pie . . . LOL!  I think I'm going to enjoy decorating the pie with the crust more than anything else. That's the creative side in me. Happy Baking! xo

Loving the new kitchen . . . we finally have a stove again :O)

Thought I would share some pics of the new stove  . . . absolutely pleased.

We went with KitchenAid on all the appliances  . . . simple lines and tasteful. 
The colors we went with in the kitchen are muted and I don't think we will get tired of them too soon.  Loving the backsplash, reminds me of the ocean, very calming to say the least. 
This oven is a traditional oven along with a convection oven, I don't have much experience with this type of oven, but will have to learn how to use it, definitely have some reading to do.  Just can't wait to bake in it, getting excited especially with the holidays coming :O)
This oven also comes with a steam bake option, nice when you are baking fish.
We are so pleased with the results of the kitchen remodel, loving the floor color, sort of looks like cement. The material is porcelain tile with the look of hardwood flooring.   The kitchen was so dark before, not a lot of light in the kitchen area, along with the dark cabinets made it not very cheerful, but wow what a difference now.

I'm gettimg so excited for Fall❤Adding some more Fall decorations around the homestead.  Creating some too😊 Oh, and you know I always have to add one of my dolls to the mix.  Hanging one in the kitchen off the towel rack.  Planning on hosting a early Thanksgiving Brunch with family and friends.  Hope all goes as planned.  Currently installing tile and carpet will follow.  Keeping my fingers crossed . . . lol!
