A Little Fall

I love Fall! Cooler air, jeans and long sleeves (well, eventually- it doesn't usually get cold enough to put away the capris and flip-flops until November here in Oklahoma), and pumpkin everything- decorations, yummy treats, wax melts to make your house smell delish, and actual Pumpkins! 

After getting rid of the Jack-O-Lanterns, I decorated a couple of pumpkins with some cute fall-ish ribbon.

Cute right? Super easy- ribbon and straight pins. Even for the bows- I just made some loops and pushed a pin through them and then stuck 'em in there!

I came across this recipe on Pinterest, and HAD to try it. It did NOT disappoint! So freakin' good. I am going to have to make some pumpkin cupcakes just so I can make this pumpkin buttercream frosting again. It is amazeballs!! For realz!

Pumpkin Bread with Salted Caramel Drizzled Pumpkin Buttercream
My drizzle technique could use some work, as could my food photography. But hey, it tasted awesome and that's what is important right??
Well, that is all my Fall Fun... and not a moment to spare since Turkey Day is in about 20 minutes!! I have not participated in all the "Thankful for" posts on the Facebook, but I would like to take a minute to say that I am so thankful for my amazing husband, my awesome kids, and the rest of my wonderful family! I am also thankful for some great friends, all the brave men and women who have fought and continue to fight for our great country, and all the MANY blessings in my life! I wish you and your families a Happy Thanksgiving and many more to come! Now, go eat until you gotta unbutton those pants!!(Or just do like Joey and wear a pair of maternity pants and call 'em your "Turkey eating pants"!!) Gobble Gobble!
