Friday afternoon, I hit the road and headed East to visit one of my best friends, Katie, for the weekend. Fun fact: Katie just started her very first blog! She's a pre-K teacher and thought it would be a great way to keep parents etc. informed of what's going on in her classroom. Check her out if you want, teachymarie.blogspot.com.
While I was visiting her, I got to start my baby registry at Babies R Us. Even though I don't know the gender of the little bean yet, it was still fun to go around the store with the little barcode zapper.
Saturday night, her friend Amanda met up with us and we went to have a few drinks (none for me!) at their local watering hole.
We had an excellent time and I even got to witness my first bar fight. Although, when I re-tell the story, I might have to embellish and tell folks I was IN the bar fight. You know, pregnant and kicking ass.
All in all, it was another great weekend and the week just keeps getting better... my sister is currently en route to the hospital and my new baby niece could possibly be here today!
Moving on to yummier things, I'm linking up with Neely and Brunch with Amber to share something sweet with you since today's topic is Fall recipe's!
Last night I gave in and made these delicious pumpkin muffins that we've all seen on Pinterest. Supposedly, all you need is one can of pumpkin and one box of cake mix to create some delicious muffins. I know, I was skeptical too...
Well, I'm here to tell you that it works! The original recipe uses a golden cake mix but I wanted to change things up and use a spice cake mix and I'm so glad that I did. It gave the muffins the perfect amount of flavor to go with that yummy pumpkin.
At first, you might get worried (I did) that the batter won't mix together properly, but luckily, you're (my) patience will be rewarded. It will be pretty thick but it's the perfect consistency to dip into your little muffin tin.
I baked mine at 330 for 30 minutes, since my oven tends to get hotter than others, and they turned out perfectly. If only I had remembered to bring them to work today for my office peeps to enjoy. Blast!
Happy Tuesday my loves! It's almost the middle of the week, woot!
