Fall Linky Party on October 1st!

I can't tell ya'll how excited I am that FALL is here!  It doesn't quite feel like fall outside here in Arkansas yet, but I am starting to see pumpkins and mums in everyone's yard and I am getting the fall itch.  I'm ready for the cooler weather, the holidays, and lots of yummy fall recipes.  I plan on getting my pumpkins Saturday morning, before the Aggies play the Razorbacks...that's another blog post in itself, and will have my house decked out before the weekend is over! 

I'm excited to announce that several blog friends and I are hosting a

"Happy Fall Y'all! Linky Party on October 1st!

Link up with your favorite recipes, DIY crafts, fall decorations, or anything you want to share!  When you link up with Harvest Home, your link will automatically be shared with the other blogs participating.  It's a wonderful way to get some new great ideas for fall!

The three other sweet girls participating are:


Meg from Henning Love

Allison from Cupcake Diaries

7 UP Biscuits

I have never made a homemade biscuit....until last week. Honestly, it was just a lot easier to buy Grands and they tasted good to me! My mom sent me a recipe for 7-Up Biscuits that she had found that had...wait for it...4 ingredients!




I had the recipe for a while and never made them. One day I went by my mother-in-law's house and she had a plate of the biscuits waiting on me. Come to find out, my mother had sent her the recipe too and she just couldn't wait to fix them! One bite and I was sold. They were so moist and delicious. Next time you need some biscuits, forget about Grands and try these!




7 UP Biscuits
2 cups Bisquick
1/2 cup sour cream
1/2 cup 7 UP
1/4 cup melted butter
Preheat oven to 450 degrees.
Cut sour cream into Bisquick mix. Add 7 UP, which will make a soft dough. Sprinkle counter with a little Bisquick mix. Add dough and pat it out. Melt butter and pour it into a 9" square baking pan. Cut your biscuits and arrange them in the pan on top of the melted butter. Bake 12-15 minutes or until golden brown.

First Grade is a Hoot!

This year I am teaching First Grade and could not be happier!  Since I taught Kindergarten last year, I have several of the same students and wanted them to have something a little different.  In true Whitney fashion, I have to re-do my room every year.  I promised my Mom that next summer I would leave my room the same so there wasn’t so much work to do!  Last year I had a camping theme, but this year I have moved on to owls.  Owls are very popular this year and well, they are in abundance in our classroom!

five years

Five years ago the farmer and I said "I do!"




I absolutely loved how my wedding turned out. It was beautiful.













During our ceremony it rained...I had no idea....and when we walked out to head to our reception there was a rainbow over the church. It was such a neat moment!




Our reception was at Ramage Farms, a blueberry and pecan farm, that is owned by my dad's childhood friend.













As you can tell below, I enjoyed myself at our reception. I did spend a little while visiting with the guests, but the majority of my night was spent on the dance floor!




My poor dress. I apparently swept the floors clean that night with my wedding dress! Don't worry, once it was taken to the dry cleaners, it was good as new :)




I'll leave you with one last photo from my reception. Ask anyone - this was me all night. Mouth wide open. I was having the time of my life!




Happy Anniversary to the farmer!
