Friday Favorites: October 21

This has been a week of catch-up, at least half a week of catch up.  With fall break over, I enjoy a lazy day or two to enjoy a quiet house again.  But not too much, there was still plenty going on this week and here are some of my favorites.

  • Book Club.  We got together and discussed The Host for a bit, and then we just talked and enjoyed pumpkin bread.
  • More books.  I started reading The Help for our next book club meeting.  I love the first paragraph!  A friend also let me borrow Lemon Tart.  It’s the first in the series of culinary cozies. Don’t forget to enter to win an iPad in celebration of the latest book in the series, Pumpkin Roll.
  • Relief Society.  We had an activity with treats and games.  I took Caramel Apple Cider Cookies that I found on Pinterest.  I also have the most determined booty, since I won musical chairs.  I also learned a fun new game called “Do You Love your Neighbor?”  It’s another scramble to get a chair game.  Hopefully those competitive games helped burn off all the cookies I ate.
  • The Glitter Academy.  Tonight’s the night I’ve been looking forward to with crafts, ice cream and the chance to be social!  I’m hoping to get a bunch of scrapbooking done tonight!

When I look at my week like that, it’s been an awesome week.  Here’s some other awesome things I found in the blogosphere.

  • Celebrations at Home has a cute, fun Halloween party (I don’t really like scary, gory Halloween).
  • Maybe you could feature these Oreo Candy Bars from In Katrina’s Kitchen.
  • If your kids are going trick or treating, these bags from Your Homebased Mom are adorable.  My kids would want bigger bags, like pillow cases with handles.
  • Not A Supermom shares her solution for mismatched socks.  It just might work…
  • I’m over at Arizona Mama sharing our Family Photo Challenge.  Remember there’s still time to vote!

Josi S. Kilpack’s Pumpkin Roll & iPad 2 Contest

I like mysteries and I like food, so of course I’m interested in Josi S. Kilpack’s Sadie Hoffmiller Culinary Mystery Series.  As a matter of fact, one of my kiddos and I have been drooling over her covers for quite some time.  She even gave me one of the books for my birthday, thinking it was the first one in the series.  But it turned out it was the fourth, Key Lime Pie.  Life’s been so crazy since then, I haven’t taken the time to see how important it is to read the books in order.  Maybe you can let me know in a comment so I know if I’d be lost starting with number four.  I better get a move since the 6th book, Pumpkin Roll,  just came out!

In conjunction with the release of Pumpkin Roll the author, Josi S. Kilpack, and the publisher, Shadow Mountain, are sponsoring a contest for a new iPad. To enter, leave a comment in the comment section of this blog before November 1, 2011. Winners will be announced and notified November 3rd 2011.
