Hey guys, how was the long weekend?

I did nothing all weekend. And by nothing I mean that I decided to rewatch Jane the Virgin and somehow made it through 2 1/2 season in 3 days.

Granted, I tend to just leave it on and walk away for hours at a time but still.

I always go back to that show when I’m super stressed because it’s funny and ridiculous and I just love it.

I did escape to my favorite trail with the husky (Good Water Loop in Georgetown) because I just really needed it to not see another human for a few hours.

I listened to a couple of my favorite podcasts, fell in the mud twice, and then stood under the waterfall before doing the 3 miles back to the car in wet shoes.

It was exactly what I needed.

Yes, this is my 2nd pumpkin recipe this week.

FOR THE RECORD, I originally had 5 scheduled and then realized that I was being insane and moved things around.

But you may still get 3 pumpkin recipes this week.

Look, I enjoy pumpkin.

I dunno what else to tell you.

Anyway. How’s the week? We’ve made it halfway through. I’ve only been in the principal’s office once this week so we’re calling it a win so far.

You guys, I went my entire school life never getting in trouble. No detention, no meetings with the principal, nothing. Ever. But I am in that principal’s office at least once a week with one of my boys.

I heard that your dog has been very good lately and deserves a treat. These Homemade Pumpkin Carrot Dog Treats are so easy and your pup is going to love them!

Homemade Pumpkin Carrot Dog Treats - your pup deserves a treat! These are so simple, healthy, and your dog is going to love them!

I ever tell you guys about the first date I went on last year where I gave the poor guy a full pitch of the cookbook I want to write one day?

One glass of wine and I got real passionate about my maybe someday in the very distant future cookbook: Booze and B*tch Biscuits, a book all about cocktails and homemade dog treats.

Amazingly, we actually ended up going out a few more times after that.

ANYWAY.

I’m all in on pumpkin.

Oh! I haven’t had my first official PSL yet. Have you? I got one from McDonald’s a couple weeks ago because I like theirs so much more than Starbucks but I feel like I need to go to Starbucks just for an Instagram picture.

You know?

Ugh.

But yeah, Homemade Pumpkin Carrot Dog Treats!

Homemade Pumpkin Cream Cheese – made with only 5 ingredients and with a non-dairy option! This recipe is so simple and is perfect on a toasted bagel! 

Homemade Pumpkin Cream Cheese - made with only 5 ingredients and with a non-dairy option! This recipe is so simple and is perfect on a toasted bagel!

Heeeey guys!

I’m breaking all my rules and posting a pumpkin recipe in September.

I know, the worst.

But here’s the thing.

I have been waiting for pumpkin cream cheese for weeks. I don’t know why. Y’all know I don’t really care about pumpkin until the weather starts to change a little but maaaaaan, I have been dreaming about a bagel with pumpkin cream cheese.

That’s a lie. I dream about pad thai every single night of my life but I have been thinking about pumpkin cream cheese more than is probably normal.

Here are the issues with that:

First: no one around here has pumpkin cream cheese yet. Have I checked every store in the area?

Yes.

Twice.

 

The other thing is that I don’t even eat cream cheese made with dairy. So I would literally buy it, take a bite, and then feed the rest to my kids.

Two pumpkin recipes this week!

Is it too much pumpkin?

I still have many cans of pumpkin in my pantry so. Prepare yourselves.

Anyway, let’s talk about making mornings easier today.

Because I get my kids out of bed at 6:15 and we’re (trying very hard to be) out the door at 6:55.

Three kids.

That’s 6 shoes that inexplicitly go missing in the middle of the night. Every single night. How does this happen? Why is one shoe outside if the other is under the bed?

I. Don’t. Understand. It.

Tell me I’m not alone. Tell me you have also found yourself sneaking into the neighbor’s garage at 7 am because your kid swears he left his shoes there.
