Excuses, Excuses

Yep, I’ve been MIA for a while again. I have good intentions.. I do.
And, I love you all and love blogging… I just have other responsibilities and projects that are taking precedence over this lovely little blog. 
Want to see my excuses? 
1. The Little Guy 
(I think he might always be excuse/reason #1from now on!)
We’ve been really enjoying the Fall weather and many cool events in the Portland area. Two weeks ago we hit the pumpkin patch, last week we checked out the Portland Nursery’s Apple Festival and this week we  have plans for another pumpkin patch. I love fall and experiencing it with the little guy and our little family has just been a treasure.
2. Halloween Prep 
It is that time of year again and my annual Halloween party prep is well underway. Because of reason number 1 I am WAY behind in getting Halloween ready to go this year. 

Sketches of the event with a long to-do list and sketches of my potential Halloween costume!

The invites— If you haven’t gotten one yet don’t fret… I got them done and haven’t put them in the mail yet!
3. Baking & Canning

We recently enjoyed visiting the Portland Nursery’s Apple Tasting (they are open this weekend as well if you are living in the Portland area) where we purchased a TON of apples and pears.
So, I’ve been busy at work cooking, baking and canning all kinds of tasty fall-goodness. 
Apple Upside Down Cake—My Fall version of the popular summer pineapple cake. Recipe coming soon!
Cans of Pear Sauce, Apple Sauce, Apple Butter,  and Pear & Apple Jam!
 So, that is what I’ve been up to and my excuses for not blogging. 

I haven’t even had time to read all my favorite blogs… currently my blog reader has 360 unread items. I’ve got to catch up on my blog stalking and comment on some of my favorite posts!  
I do have many guest posts, tutorials and party posts in the works… but, for now I am going to go back to enjoying my excuses! Have a great day!
What have you been up to this season? I’d love to know… leave a comment or blog link!
