Pumpkin Season


Oh it sure is my favorite time of the year.  Summertime is a very close second.  It lost first place standing because there are no pumpkins!  So I don't really care for pumpkins.... just the sweet treats it produces!  Lately I have been dying to find a pumpkin cookie recipe that I like.  I'm not way into the cake-like cookies you normally find.  I wanted something dense.

GUESS WHAT!!! I FOUND IT!!!!!

Ah!  I'm just so oober glad I have it!  Of course I tried it out as soon as I got home and what a delicacy it was!  Did I mention the dollop of cream cheese frosting on top???  I DIDN'T???  How rude of me. :)


I am a pretty messy baker....  I just figure it doesn't matter as long as the end product turns out superb. :)  Justin usually does my after-baking dishes.  I tend to take naps right after.  tee hee.


SCRUMPTIOUS! This is now my all-time favorite dessert.  Gonna make me some more!

I'm starting to salivate so I need to switch subjects.  If you don't mind, of course.

BYU! BYU! BYU!

So I am not a student at BYU but my parents are both alumni and absolutely love the school.  I will admit that there is something so amazing about that university!  My dad bought season football tickets and we went to the BYU vs. WEBER home game.  First ever university football game and I loved it!!!  It's not necessarily the sport that I love so much as the sheer excitement of it all.  So many fans dressed up to support!  It was super fun!  Loved our little daddy-daughter date. :) Oh!  If you were wondering, we won 45 to 13. OH YEAH.....


SMALL SIDE NOTE:

I've lost 14 lbs.!!!!  I cannot even believe it!  I really never thought  it would happen.... success stories only happen to people who own Photoshop!  Not to me!

But I did it!  WOOHOO!  Still more to go but I'm ecstatic about the progress I have made :)


TADA!

Have a wonderful Tuesday everyone.  I posted about this day earlier and I hope everyone stops to take a moment of silence for those who lost their lives.  God bless them and their families.
