Hershey Kiss Pumpkin Spice Stuffed FAT WITCH Brownies

It’s funny how the older my children get the more lessons that I learn from them.  Isn’t it supposed to be the other way around?  Aren’t I supposed to be the one TEACHING the lessons, not learning them?

Vintage Dresser Makeover

Meet Chloe...

Isn't she magnificent?  

I love her curvy shape...and her little short stubby, curvy legs...and the wheels...swoon!

Caramel Crumb Shortbread Bars

These seriously need to be called the "oh my GAWD these are so freakin' delish bars".  

But I figured that would be too long of a title.

I actually wasn't even interested in these particular bars...I was more interested in sampling them as a base recipe for several other bars that I am going to be making.

The Game/Play/Family Room Update...

It seems like eons ago when we started this project...really it wasn't even 2 months ago but DANG-IT we just can't seem to get 'er done!  

You know the project you start by saying "hey, lets just paint this room this color" and all the sudden your re-doing the entire upstairs?

I will never forget this day.  

I remember talking on the phone with my mom while I was getting dressed.

Good Morning America was on the TV.

And I was frustrated because a job that I had interviewed for weeks ago still hadn't offered me the position.

They had called that morning letting me know that the paperwork was being pushed through but that it would be a week or so more before the official offer was made.

I was complaining about this and absent minded-ly staring at the TV.

There was smoke billowing from one of the Twin Towers.

They were saying something about a plane hitting it.

I stopped talking to listen and saw the second plane crash into the remaining Tower.

There was talk of terrorism...another hijacked all seemed to run together as my mind tried to wrap around what had just happened.

I could hear my boys, then just two and three, playing loudly in the other room.

My mom and I didn't speak another word but we couldn't hang up the phone either.

Time seemed to stand still.

I remember every single moment of that day as if it were yesterday.

And every single day since then,

I am thankful for our military, firefighters and every person involved in ensuring that our country is safe.

Thank you and God Bless!

Let us never forget....

Chocolate Chocolate Pumpkin Cake with Spiced Pumpkin Buttercream

This past weekend I spent a ridiculous amount of time in my kitchen testing out new recipes for the upcoming Fall holidays.  To say I am super ridiculously over-the-top excited about the holidays doesn't even scratch the surface.  I have been Pinning, printing and ripping out magazine pages galore with all kinds of ideas!
