Temptation

I am enjoying my time home with the kiddos everyday. I really am. I love feeling organized with their school work, getting a routine for extra curricular activities, menu planning and shopping. I am grateful that I have the opportunity to be home with them.

So, why is it that I am feeling so drawn to another work opportunity? Is it because I can’t say no? Or is it my competitive nature? My inability to stay in one place? Or am I an overachiever who thrives on the chaos of having too much to do with too little time?

Tasting Fall

One of my favorite things about Fall is the foods. I love pumpkin pancakes, and apple crisps, and the fall drinks.

There have been far too many silly debates about the Starbucks pumpkin spice lattes. Yeah, yeah, yeah, we all know there is no real pumpkin in them. It’s a flavor, like most other drinks, and I enjoy it, so I’ll drink them.

Someone shared a recipe with me recently that I had to try. It was so simple, my 12 y/o was able to make it. And it was so yummy, I’m certain I’ll be making this again soon:

I’ve seen pumpkin flavors in a variety of things during this time of year. Most recently, my sister shared pumpkin spice popcorn. What’s your favorite fall flavor? Or the strangest thing you’ve seen on the store shelves?
