So Fun To Dream

Isn't it fun to dream of having things that you wish you could have? From simple things to unrealistic, unnecessary things. Well, lately I have been dreaming and I'll show you some of the things I've dreamed about after I show you some things that I am enjoying this Fall season. I also want to share a yummy looking recipe I want to try from this great new cookbook I bought.
This Gooseberry Patch Autumn with Family and Friends cookbook has so many great recipes.

Here is one I would like to try~

Pumpkin-Sausage Penne

8-oz. pkg. cream cheese, cubed
16 oz. penne pasta cooked
2/3 cup grated Parmesan cheese
16 oz. pkg. maple flavored ground pork sausage, browned and drained.
1/2 cup butter, sliced
1/2 cup milk
1 cup canned pumpkin
1/2 tsp. cayenne pepper
Optional: additional grated Parmesan cheese
nutmeg to taste

Combine cream cheese, Parmesan cheese, butter and milk in a large saucepan. Cook over low heat until cream cheese is melted, stirring frequently. Stir in pumpkin and spices, cook until heated through, stirring occasionally. Add cooked pasta and sausage, toss lightly. Serve topped with additional Parmesan cheese, if desired. Makes 8 servings.

It may sound weird to some of you, but it sounds delicious to me! :)

Now here are a few things I am loving so far this Fall.

My handmade cozy slipper socks that a friend gave me as a gift. They are just perfect for chilly mornings and evenings. So comfy!

Fire pits and making Smores!
The crisp breeze blowing in the window especially in the morning~
Of course I LOVE the so very yummy Pumpkin Spice and the new Toffee Mocha Latte's at Starbuck's. Mmmmm!
I am also loving cute Fall clothes and accessories like pretty scarves~

Super cute jackets, tall boots, skinny jeans, and sweaters~

How about some stylish hats~

Paige and I were in ULTA the other day and saw the new OPI Swiss collection. Love some of these colors~Okay, so those are the realistic things I am enjoying. Now here are some wishes!

A shiny new 2011 Dodge Charger. I would be driving all over the place if I had one of these! I might even sleep in it ha ha!

Now this is for me and my friend Jamie. New Harley's! Woo Hoo! Now I just have to learn how to ride it! Man it would be so FUN!!!!!

This one is mine~
Jamie, this is for you. Hope you like it:)

Then I would love this front porch! Jamie, you can ride on over on your new bike and sit on my porch with me. I'll serve you a nice tall glass of sweet iced tea! Isn't this porch lovely?

I'll take one of these too~
hee hee hee :) Wowwy wow wow!

Just kiddin! Well, maybe not:)

Thanks for stopping by and dreaming with me! Have a great night!


  1. Its so good to hear from you again. I have kept an eye out for your return to blogland. You were the very first blog I ever looked up...I mean EVER!! I had never been into blogs and didnt really get what they were all about until I saw your house in country sampler magazine and saw that you had a blog. I just loved all your beautiful decorations and had to see more, so I got on your website and fell in love with it and blogland. Of course I found many other blogs by checking out the ones you liked. I have missed your posts I know you have had a lot of changes in the last year and I know that change is not easy. I just wanted to tell you how glad I am to see you on here again and that I feel like an old friend has come back for a visit. Looking forward to many more to come.
    Blessings to you

  2. Lisa posted my thoughts EXACTLY! Your Country Sampler article is what got me hooked on blogging! I haven't posted on my blog since February, but I still check others out all the time! Good to hear from you again!
