Bieber Fever at the Bishop house!!! The girls finally got to meet Justin Bieber, a dream come true (kinda, sorta?) So much fun! Lila asked me if I could go to the mall like this with a straight face! Brian was Selena Gomez (Justin's girlfriend) and I know, I know, this picture is disturbing. We told him to pose like her! He was a VERY GOOD SPORT as usual! Hope you all had a wonderful Halloween!

Carmel Pretzel Nut Popcorn
8 cups broken pretzels
20 cups popped popcorn
4 cups roasted peanuts
3 cups brown sugar
3/4 cups light corn syrup
1 1/2 cups butter
1 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon baking soda
2 teaspoons vanilla extract
Place pretzels, popcorn and peanuts into a very large pan, bowl or brown paper bag and set aside.
In a medium saucepan over medium heat, combine the brown sugar, corn syrup and butter. Cook, stirring to melt the butter and dissolve the sugar, until mixture comes to a boil. Once the mixture is at a full boil, continue to cook for 5 minutes, stirring constantly.
Remove from heat and stir in the salt, vanilla, and baking soda. The mixture will foam up when you add the soda, so use a long wooden spoon to stir. Immediately pour the sugar mixture over the popcorn , pretzels and peanuts in the pan or bag. Mix or shake until the mixture is evenly coated.

I have never been so busy before a sale that I did not get steller pics of the inside of the barn before it got shopped. THANK YOU to all who came and thank you for your patience! What a beautiful night it was and what fun and great energy filled the barn! I am still on a high! It was the biggest sale yet and when you have a traffic jam things can get crazy! It will not be that way next time and we will have a new parking system in place. I learn so much every sale and will improve. I will get through more shots and add what I have, but wanted to get the crowd shot and the coolest owl ever that I made from all natural materials. It is one of my faves ever! A special thanks to my awesome team for pulling together all that goes into this!
