Handkerchief Wedding Dresses


Being a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints is such a joy.  If you want to learn more about my church go here.  In my calling I get to work in the Young Women's program.  These beautiful young ladies are so strong and faithful and such great examples to all of the world.
It was so neat to go to the Women's General Broadcast this last weekend and hear the inspired messages from the leaders of the church.  Temples were a big part of the theme of the evening and it is also a big topic we teach about in the Young Womens.  It reminded me of these handkerchief wedding dresses I made for my Laurel class.

Riverton Housewives Round Up #130

Hello blogger friends!  I just want to apologize, I don't know what happened with the linky party last week but it had some issues while I was sleeping peacefully thinking it was posted and ready for your links.  Last week proved to be just as crazy as I was afraid it was going to be.  My oldest was diagnosed with pneumonia on Wednesday and between that and just the coughs and colds the younger kids have I would do just about anything to not have to hear someone coughing all night long (don't worry, I know I'm not up for mom of the year).  Good news is we all survived and I got to end my week with my daughters and my wonderful friends at the General Women's Meeting.  What a wonderful and uplifting way to end the week!  This week Nate and I celebrate 17 years of marriage.  I'm not going to lie, I don't really feel old enough to have been married for 17 years, it isn't too much longer until I will have been married for more of my life than I wasn't.  What a weird change that will be!  I'm excited you're here and can't wait to see what you've been up to this week.  ~Jenn

So get to linking up!  We can't wait to see all the amazing stuff you all have to share!

Here is what we LOVED from last Round Up!

The Pin Junkie shares with us her Navajo Taco recipe.  We often make this fry dough to have as a breakfast or dessert but I haven't branched out to the Navajo Tacos yet.  This looks so good I think I'm going to have to do it...soon!

I am so excited for Conference Weekend this weekend, it is easily one of my very favorite weekends of the year.  Keep Moving Forward with Me has a wonderful post FULL of ideas for teaching children about following the prophet and preparing for conference.  You're going to want to spend conference weekend at her house, I know I do!

I couldn't do it, I couldn't post on the 1st day of October and NOT include a pumpkin recipe, I just love them too much.  Luckily Upstate Ramblings has a Chocolate Chip Pumpkin Roll recipe that is going to make you glad I caved and included another pumpkin recipe!

And our most viewed this week was our most viewed by a landslide (I like to believe it's because included in the post is a shout out to one of our fun projects...but please note, I had no idea until after I saw it was our most viewed).  Pink Polka Dot Creations has a fantastic roundup of Cute Halloween Ideas.  It was awesome to see one of our own in there and I had so much fun looking at all of the things she included in her round up.  I highly recommend checking them all out!

Once again, thank you to everyone who linked up with us last week even though I somehow messed up the party, if you missed us last week I hope you'll share some of your projects from the last 2 weeks.  I love being inspired by you all!  NOW onto the party!

Halloween homemade Oreo's

 Our family loves homemade Oreo cookies. I thought it would be fun to make a Halloween version of these cookies. You probably already have all the ingredients in your pantry if you are like me and buy devils food cake mixes at the case lot sale. You probably don't but you should that way you always have them on hand and can make these cookies whenever you want. These cookies are so soft and yummy it's hard to only eat one!

Caramel Candy Corn Cookies

There's just something about Fall and candy corn...they go hand in hand!  So I decided to make some yummy cookies with one of our favorite treats in them.
