Well good morning, pumpkin!!! I’m in bed in my apartment in Walla Walla right now and excited for my last day in wine country. The only time I’ve ever spent in Washington was in Seattle but wine country is a little more my speed. There’s no traffic here, everyone is super friendly, and everybody knows each other. And this town is so adorable and walkable. I love it!
But I’ll be chatting all about Walla Walla next week on the blog, so stay tuned for that, especially if you’re a wine lover! In the meantime, let’s talk about pumpkin season. Because now that it’s October, it’s time to make out with pumpkin as much as possible. I already have multiple pumpkin recipes ideas for the next two month, but if you’re ready to get basic AF, here’s some pumpkin recipes from the past that are A MUST!
- Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Cups
- Pumpkin Crumb Pancakes
- Pumpkin Spice Chocolate Chip Energy Balls
- Pumpkin Magic Bars
- Ooey Gooey Chocolate Chip Pumpkin Bars
- Chai Pumpkin Bread
- Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Muffins
Ok, that’s enough for now. If that doesn’t get you in the pumpkin mood, you’re doomed! You are pumpkin doomed.
Speaking of doomed, this whole being born with blonde hair thing continues to cramp my style. Especially since I drink collagen daily in my coffee so my hair seems to grow WAY faster than it use to. So now when I REALLY need my hair dyed, but my appointment is still a few days away, I have to use root touch up spray to cover my blonde hairs that shimmers in the light and makes me look like I’m balding. So cute. The problem with this root spray is that you can’t run your fingers through your hair…or really touch it in any way. Because if you do, your fingers are now dyed. And I’m going for brown hair over here, not brown fingernails. This hair is doomed, I tell ya!
Ok before I let you go so I can brunch, shop, pilates, lunch, shop, food, wine and shop some more, I have to tell you about two things I’m obsessed with right now and hope to use in more recipes. Two things that you’ll see in this recipe include bee pollen and these butter toffee snacks that I want to eat every day of my life until I croak. Bee pollen is suppose to be great for allergies, so I’m trying to add it into my daily routine more. And the butter toffee snacks are like eating toffee, which is one of my favorite past times. Did I need to tell you any of this information? Probably not, but it just felt right, ok?! Kloveyoubye!
