Happy Weekend (finally!)

This week has been kinda long. Every day has felt like it should have been Friday. I'm glad the weekend is finally here. Today I am going to spend the day in the mountains, with my Mom and her cousin. It's supposed to be really cold and rainy, but I'm looking forward to it, because it's just us ladies.

Even though it's been a long week, we've had really beautiful weather, and the boys and I have been outside every day, soaking up the warmth before it turns cold this weekend. We carved our pumpkin this week, and I really wanted to find a good recipe for roasting the pumpkin seeds. I happened upon this one on Laura's blog. We tried the ranch flavor and they were YUMMY!

Last night we had movie night. I ate way too much popcorn and candy. Ummm, and so did the boys. They were wired, and stayed awake way past their bedtime. But we had a fun evening together, and I love watching them have fun. So it was totally worth it. 

I love all things pumpkin, so I've been looking for some new recipes to try. This one is on the list. For sure. 

Scott's cousin surprised us one evening this week with a visit and a gift of pumpkin cupcakes with cinnamon cream cheese frosting. I am not lying when I say they are THE BEST cupcakes I've ever had. Ever. Seriously. She blogged the recipe here. You must try it out if you are a fan of pumpkin. They are perfection.
