Pumpkin Season

Hello everyone, My name is Breanne and I am here to admit to you that I have a problem. I am currently obsessed with all things pumpkin.
 Pumpkin Frappucinnos, Pumpkin Chai Lattes, Pumpkin cookies, pumpkin bread, Spice Pumpkin air freshener....you name it. I love it.

 I guess the heart of the obsession stems from Pinterest and all the cool things I've been finding that I can make. Let's be real though, I hardly have time to make most of the things I find on there. I think I can make some exceptions for my lovely friend Pumpkin. Pumpkin makes me feel like Autumn is here even if it still almost reaches the 90's most days in Southeast Texas. I'd really like some permanent cool weather. A girl can wish, right? The weather here is so strange. One day it can be below freezing and the next day it will be in the upper 80s. No kidding, it has been in the upper 80s for Christmas before but snowing the week before...? It was the first time it snowed since the 60's! So strange...

  And lately this weather has been so bipolar and consequently so have I.

What was I talking about again? OH right. Pumpkins. Now, until Thanksgiving I am going to be trying out some Pumpkin Recipes, along with some pumpkin crafts that I will sharing on the blog.

You can follow my Pumpkin Spice board on Pinterest if you'd like (and my other boards too). ;)


I wrote a post last fall here about "pumpkin spice" (but not really) last fall. It is more about Mocha Club and the scarf I bought than anything else. The scarves are made by women in Ethiopia.
A sweet blogger friend of mine will be venturing over there NEXT WEEK! How exciting is that? She'll be working with a different organization but nonetheless she is going. You can visit Jennifer and her blog at The Blair Affairs and read about what she will be doing here. Please stop by, say hello, and say a prayer for her. I am also a sponsor for her blog this month!

You can read my post from last fall here. 
Funny how pumpkins lead me to Ethiopia....





With the arrival of Fall, have you tried anything with pumpkin?
Please share any recipes or crafts you might have!

  2. I am obsessed with pumpkins too! I got so sad when I learned that a lot of pumpkin patches got destroyed by hurricane Irene. Lol my roommate laughed at me cause I said that I couldn't live without pumpkins!

  4. I love pumpkins! There is something about a pumpkin that makes me feel like fall is finally here and then in will swoop all the Holidays. It gives me this warm fuzzy feeling. I LOVE pumpkin bread and lately Pumpkin Spice Frappucinos (with caramel) from Starbucks. It still gives me that fall feeling even on hot days.

    p.s. LOVED that bat idea!
