Pictures, Pumpkins, and my Peeps!

My Peeps. :-)
Today I got to host a Shutterfly More Merry House Party. Several of my friends took time out of their day to join me. It was a lot of fun for me. I got to show off some of my updates around the house, and tried lots of Pinterest recipes and crafts.

By popular request here is the Pinterest inspired recipe for:

Pumpkin Latte
CrockPot Pumpkin Lattes
1 Quart of half and half (That's the tall one)
1/2 of a 15oz can of pumpkin
2 Tablespoons of Pumpkin Pie Seasoning
2 Tablespoons of Vanilla
1 1/4 Cups of Sugar
Full 12 cup pot of strongly brewed coffee (I doubled the amount of coffee grounds)
Whipped Topping for garnish

Combine all ingredients in your crockpot. Use an immersion blender to fully incorporate the pumpkin. (The Original recipe called for whisking, but many of the comments recommended an immersion blender, since I had one... I used it.) Cook on high for 2 hours.

Bottom of second batch!
This was such a hit, that I needed to make a second batch mid party! (I was about to substitute regular milk for the Half and Half, when My Vet came home, then ran back out to the store for me.) For the second batch I placed the crock in the microwave on high for 6 minutes to get it hot fast. We drank that round up quick too!

Getting all crafty.
I wanted to try a Pinterest decor idea, but didn't want to spend the money on helium. So I just used painters tape to tape the dollar store balloons to the ceiling! I then just set out the photo books, photos, and cards I had made using Shutterfly.

After party fun!
