Favorite things about Fall!

Hello everyone! 
I am so excited to join in on the blog party, and hopefully will make some new friends :) 
I am sharing what my favorite things about fall are. But before I do I wanted to introduce myself. 

My name is Cerrisse I am stay at home mama to a 16 month old boy Jax who is my little angel.  I have been married for 4 years to my wonderful husband Curt. I love do crafts, scrapbook, make jewelry, read, hike, and camp. We are just enjoying life right now, and couldn't be happier. 

Me and my mom started The {posh} Daisy about 2 months ago. We sell jewelry and headbands, and LOVE it! I love creating new and fun designs and it makes it even better when I can do it with my mom.

Favorite Things of Fall

I love fall.  I mean who doesn't. It's the start of the holidays, new fashion, changing colors, and lots of yummy treats. These are some of my favorite things for fall!
*Just to warn you, after looking at some of these pictures it will make you hungry ;)*














Broccoli Cheese Soup
*From our home to yours, this is one of our favorite fall soups* 


4-5 C.Cubed potatoes 
2 C. carrots cut diagonally
1-2 C. celery
1 C. diced onion 
2 tsp. salt
2 1/2 C water
10 oz. bag of broccoli chopped
1/2 C butter
6 chicken bullion cubes (or 6 tsp)
1 tsp. dry mustard 
1/2 tsp. pepper
1Lb. Velveeta cheese in chunks
2 C. milk thickened with 1/4 C flour

Simmer veggies in water for 20 minutes. Add packaged broccoli cook another 10 minutes or until veggies are tender. Put in blender. Melt butter, add milk mixture, bullion and seasonings until well mixed over low heat.  Add cheese. Stir until melted. Add blended veggies. Optional: add cream of chicken soup with cheese. (this is what we do, yum) 
For extra thick soup add shredded chick and cooked veggies, and serve in a bread bowl. 

Now go curl up on the couch with a blanket, hot chocolate or cocoa and just be!
Thanks for stopping by.

I want to comment on the chunky sweaters and the soup, but damn the people who can frost cookies like that! How do they do it? Why hasn't my frosting technique improved since the "frost your own cookie station" at the preschool parties I went to two and a half decades ago?

Love this pretty list.
