Oh you guys, I am so indecisive. Sadly the joke at my house is, before the season is over I have rearranged the decor a-ba-zilion times and by the time I get it the way I like it, it's time to take it down! Do I drive my poor hubby crazy? Probably! Good thing he kinda likes me a little!

My cute Mom invited us for Sunday dinner. I wanted to take dessert.
I've been wanting to make this recipe for a while. I got it from a blog last year and I really wish I knew which one so I could THANK her. These are seriously to die for!
Cream Cheese Frosting
(Betty Crocker New Cookbook)
1/4 cup (stick) butter
1 t. vanilla
2 t. milk
4 C. powdered sugar
Beat Cream Cheese,butter,milk,vanilla in a medium bowl until smooth. Gradually best in powdered sugar at a low speed. 1 cup at a time until smooth and spreadable.
I made the pretty, perfect round ones into Whoopie Pies..
(you know, the with whoopie pie craze going around, I was feeling a little behind!)
Then I had some not so perfect round ones.
they started out like this..... just a dollop of frosting on the top.
(they looked much prettier). ..
They looked a little different but, sure tasted the same!
I left all the rest but these three with them so that they would eat them and not me!
The pumpkin flavor is subtle and everything just works so well together!
'Tis the season for pumpkin Chocolate Chip Cookies...Now go make you some!

OK, We HAVE to talk Avocados today! Do you love these as much as I do?
I remember as a little girl my sweet Grandma making toast and smearing a Avocado on the bread like it was the jelly. I fell in love with them then and there! They are a staple in our house , we eat them 3 times a week. Whether it be alone with a little salt and pepper, guacamole, or of course in a good wedge salad! YUMMY!
Well did you know....
• One-fifth of a medium avocado (1 oz.) has 50 calories and contributes nearly 20 vitamins and minerals, making it a nutrient-dense food choice.
• Avocados contribute good fats to one’s diet.
• Over 75% of the fat in avocados is unsaturated (monounsaturated and polyunsaturated fats), making them a great substitute for foods high in saturated fat.
You've all heard of Hass Avocados right?
Ok, so listen to what they have going on RIGHT NOW!

This little girl is so freaking adorable! I just love her! She is a German Shorthair Pointer. She loves blankets and the little space heater. She loves to lay in the sunshine. She is so hyper and busy, hence her name Naughty Pants. When she was tiny and Pretty Princess was getting ready to take a bath and her water was running, this little girl would jump right in the bath and start splashing away, digging at the running water! When I would be unloading dishes from the dishwasher, she would just hop right up on the door that was laying out! She keeps us laughing because of her sweet personality. Her latest craze is chasing bugs and shadows. I actually called the vet because it has become an obsession to her, she will lay in the light that comes through the windows and watch for bug shadows. I got online and read that it could be a neurological problem. When I called the vet, he told me that this breed in extremely hyper and can get bored easily, she is making up her "own game." He suggested to take her for more walks, like long walks...he even said, when you think it's been long enough, go even further...Really? She has the sweetest personality, you can look at her she will tilt her head in a way that lets you know she is trying to read you facial expression. She is a "Talker" She barks to let us know what she wants. She and Ruger are like day and night, yet best friends!

How are you all? Are you all loving this cool weather? I am so loving having my windows open and feeling the cool breeze! Love me some FALL!
This time of year Pretty Princess and I have a tradition of making Halloween dinners and munchies out of
our "Fun for kids recipe book" and I was looking for a fun and easy recipe I could make for her and the hubby before they got home on Friday. This was one of the fun Halloween foods they had in it.
(and I had all the stuff for)
They called them Magic Wands..
and to make them magical...you gotta have the sprinkles and chocolate chips!
You can garnish with anything you have though....
and then the Pumpkin cake! Don't worry...I'll be telling you all how to make them...if you don't already know how!
Have a great day!
Here it is!
Here's the breakdown...
*From the dollar store*
- plastic spiders
-spider web cloth
- some of the labels
*From the thrift store*
-Most labels HERE
-Readers Digest books
-Soft (Gummy like) Mice
Some of the jars, I saved and spray painted the lids, added jute or ribbon. What do you think? Fun?
Now go make you some fun stuff!
Have a great day!

(I triple heart freebies)
The best part for me, is that it is online, so you can move everything around. Well, you all know me...I am so indecisive... when you are using paper, once it is glued down...there is no changing it. With My Memories Scrapbook Software that isn't the case...move,delete,change...get it the way you want it and then either print it out, take it to your favorite photo shop,download it, so many choices! This was like getting a new toy to me! LOVE IT!
