Fall is Here

Fall is here in the Midwest and I could not be happier. This means cool morning, soups, pumpkin bread, boot, sweaters, football, ect.. Can you tell this is my favorite time of year?! This weekend I started my Sunday ritual of making soup/stew. On the menu for this week is chicken soup, here's how I made mine:

3 - 32 oz containers of free range chicken broth (I use Trader Joes brand)
3/4 bag of egg noodles
1 bag of organic mixed veggies from (carrots, peas, corn and green beans)
1 - rotisserie chicken
dash of rosemary and pepper

This recipe is super easy makes a large amount of soup. I have plenty for leftovers and enough to freeze.

What's your favorite fall recipe?

What to wear this fall?

So it's almost fall here in the midwest despite the 80 degree weather. I'm so ready to start wearing sweaters and boots. I've been adding a few new things to my wardrobe, so far I've purchased some new jeans, flats, military-style jacket, and some long-sleeved tees.

Jacket from Loft

Me Too flats - Nordstrom

I need some more sweaters and saw this at Lands End - I like this as you could pair with leggings or jeans.

So what are your must have items for fall?

Happy Birthday!

This sweet boy is 10 today! He is the best dog anyone could ask for and a real love bug. Hope everyone is having a great weekend.

I'm Back with a New Blog

I'm so excited to start blogging again. I took a much longer than anticipated blog break. Some of you may remember my previous blog Almost Home. I decided to a create a blog that was more about our life now and less focus on our adoption. Today Hubby and I had a great afternoon. We went to a local park and went hiking, so much fun and great exercise. Afterwards, we went out for ice cream at a local organic creamery. Below are some photos of our adventures today. I'm so in love with the calfs from the creamery, aren't they just the cutest!?

Some of you may wonder why I chose the blog name, well let me be honest and say it took me months to decide on a title. I chose Midwest Classic simply because I live in the Midwest and I'm pretty Classic/Traditional in style and decorating, so there you have it.

Hope everyone had a wonderful weekend!
