Fresh Fall FlowersA few weeks ago we acquired a gorgeous pumpkin centerpiece from this wedding. Unfortunately, the pumpkin had seen it's better days so it went to the compost pile last week. With the pumpkin now gone, I couldn't let these gorgeous Fall flowers go to waste. I'm so happy I salvaged them because they really brighten up our home!
Trick-or-Treaters!I am beyond excited for our first trick-or-treaters in our new home. After 4 years of college and 5 years of apartment living, I am long overdue for some adorable children in costume showing up on Halloween. I went to Costco yesterday and filled our candy bucket and have my Jack-O-Lantern window lights ready to go!
Erin Condren Deal @ Plum DistrictI love me some Erin Condren. I already have my Life Planner which I am obsessed with, but would love to add to my Erin collection. Plum District came out with an EC deal just in time for the holidays and you know I couldn't resist it. To get this fantastic deal, join Plum District right now! Now the big question of what adorable item to pick!
Baking with Pumpkinmy less photogenic cookies
Earlier this week I think the cooler air got to me and I had the urge to do some serious baking. I opened a can of pumpkin and went to town on these delicious Pumpkin Spice Cookies from SkinnyTaste. They were very cake like and very yummy. I did the chocolate drizzle for half of the batch and added chocolate chips to the other half. Both ways were amazing!
I refused to let half a can of pumpkin go to waste so I finished it off with a batch of Pumpkin Muffins from For the Love of Cooking last night. They were the perfect addition to this very cold Friday morning we're having. What are your favorite pumpkin recipes?
The Muppets Movie
I am a huge huge huge Muppets fan. I absolutely loved them as a child and still love them today. I literally watched the Muppets Take Manhattan 300 times as a child and could never get enough! So I am incredibly excited for the new Muppets movie. I'm also excited for a new generation to discover these fantastic characters!
A Football WinWith our NFL team (the Colts) seriously struggling this year, I will take any good football I can get. Thankfully my college team delivered last night. I'm so happy we beat Miami on national TV. I may be a little tired today from staying up to see the end, but it was definitely worth it!
What's making you happy this Friday?
