I realized I forgot to post what my little lady jack-o-lantern looked like lit up!
Did I ever mention here that I bought cast iron at an estate sale? I put it on instagram but shared that I was a little nervous about it. It just seems like there are so many rules! I washed it down with apple cider vinegar and coarse salt to try to wipe it clean before seasoning it myself. Since it was secondhand, I wanted to clean it a bit before using it. I seasoned it with Crisco then put it in the oven at 500 degrees for an hour (turned upside down with foil underneath to catch the drippings) and then I cooked a few strips of bacon and used the grease for corn bread!
It turned out well and everyone gobbled it up at our chili/pumpkin/football get together last weekend!
I feel like a true southern lady now that I have cast iron. :)
With the cold weather recently, we could tell that Lucy was getting a little chilly. Soooo, she got a sweater! I love to put it on her and she's actually really good about wearing it! Here she was last weekend:
We went to celebrate Ollie's first Halloween and he was decked out in his skeleton onesie with a cute "first Halloween" bib.
So cute!! Such a happy baby! Andy made him giggle SO hard - I had no idea 3-4 month olds could laugh like that!!
It was a pretty fantastic October!! This week, I'll show you Christmas in my booth! I KNOW, I KNOW. Everyone is putting Christmas out so early and I'm one of them... but I didn't have any other weekend, really! Stay tuned. :)
