Two Different Pumpkins

Last night I had what I thought was a brilliant idea.  This:


scone mix


plus this:




could only equal pure deliciousness right?  That scone mix was part of an Easter basket from way back in April, and I thought I had finally found the perfect way to make use of it.  Just add water and bake!  How much easier could it get?  Well apparently my addition of 3/4 cup of pumpkin threw off some things because instead of a slightly sticky ball of dough, I had this mess.



this is not right...

omg what a disaster


Literally every ounce of dough stuck to my hands, but I persevered and somehow made the sticky dough into scone like shapes.  I still had no idea how they would taste, but I wasn’t willing to waste my pumpkin.  11 minutes later I had a tray of “scones” that looked something else entirely.




Obviously I had to try one right away.  I broke it open, watched the steam escape and tentatively took my first bite.  Well hey, at least they don’t taste like crap!  They were however, somewhat bland, and my beloved pumpkin flavor was noticeably absent.


are you there pumpkin?


They weren’t a total fail, but they weren’t exactly right either.  Now I want to try again from scratch and see if I can really get it right.  Or I might just rely on my tried and true pumpkin chocolate chip cookie recipe to get me through my pumpkin cravings.  Only time will tell.  After my pumpkin scone somewhat fail, I had to turn around and yell at the other Pumpkin.


bad cat!

Look at her, going in for the kill.  Every single leaf in that vase has little kitty bite marks in it.  The best part is she’ll jump up there, wait for me to look at her, and then start gnawing on the plant.  The second I yell at her she’ll jump down, but it’s like she’s waiting to get yelled at.  Why is she such a monster?


Grey’s was last night, I really only have one thing to say about that because really I have no idea what happened in the entire episode.  I was too busy swooning over this guy.

omg so hot

Hello Jesse Williams, I see you went to Temple, will you be returning to Philadelphia for a visit any time soon?  Can I take you out for a drink?  Seriously though, the eyes, the abs!  I’m not sure it gets any better. Ok, time to move on before boyfriend gets offended.

I’m wearing my new jeggings today, and I don’t think I want to wear real pants ever again.  Seriously, most comfortable things ever, and they fit inside my boots amazingly and without a struggle.




So yes, if you have been on the lookout for jeggings I highly recommend these from The Limited.  Comfy, dark wash, with real back pockets.  Also, if you buy two pairs of any pant one is $25 off!

As I said yesterday, I’m off to NYC for the weekend after work.  I’m really hoping to meet up with Jacquie while I’m there, maybe on Sunday afternoon? Would any other NYC bloggers/readers be interested?  Let me know!

What is everyone else up to this weekend, anything good?  Have a happy Friday!



Shopping Spree!

Tuesday nights are my rest day, and last night instead of actually resting, my sister and I headed over to the mall to do some shopping.  Initially I wasn’t having any luck, found two shirts in the GAP and a sweater for $9 in Ann Taylor, but I finally scored some great stuff at The Limited.


brown pin stripe dress pants, black and brown camis, jeggings! All from The Limited



two sweaters also from The Limited



long sleeve t-shirts 2 for $15 at The GAP



black cardigan, $9.98 at Ann Taylor


I really found some great deals last night.  Sweaters at the limited were %30 off, pants were buy one get one $25 off, camis were buy one get one %50 off, and I opened a Limited card saving %15 off my entire order. Plus, apparently now that I am a card holder I can get any pants from there lengthened for free!  Which is awesome because most dress pants come with a 32 or 33 inch inseam and that is too short for me to wear heels with.  I really amped up my fall wardrobe, and I think I should be set for a while.

I was making fun of boyfriend the other day, and all his plaid and flannel, asking him why he insisted on dressing like a lumberjack.  This is all going on while I’m scrolling through the Sperry website and deciding that these are the rain boots I want.

Also keep in mind that my fall/winter wardrobe typically involves skinny jeans or leggings tucked into either my grey riding boots, brown boots, or Uggs.  He asked me why I insist on dressing like I’m going out to ride horses every day.  I responded, “Well I wish I were going out to ride horses!”  To which he replied, “Well I wish I were a lumberjack!”  Now, I’m just guessing here, but I don’t think he really wants to be a lumberjack.  Therefor, I win the discussion, equestrian look is much better than lumberjack ;).

Soooo yeah, a depart from the usual today, but sometimes I like to talk about fashion.  It is a beautiful fall morning here today, I actually wore a jacket, and looking to be a gorgeous day before rain returns tomorrow.  Happy Wednesday!

Do you all like the way your significant other dresses?

Am I the only one who looks like they parked their horse outside on a daily basis?
