Good morning and welcome to a new week!
In the past I've done several posts talking about how nice it would be if we could all have coffee together. Today let's have muffins and milk while we chat. The muffins are chocolate and pumpkin - they are kind of made up based on a few recipes I studied. They are moist and yummy. The milk is ice cold but I have hot coffee too, if you'd prefer. I set everything up on the three tier tray so you can grab what you want.
So how are you doing? Is it fall where you are? Everything is fine here and we are starting to see hints of fall. Our house is on the market but there's not a soul looking. We'll be patient and know that something great will come sooner or later. I'm getting lots of exercise keeping things spotless. Cleaning counts as exercise, right?
Have you been to the movies lately? We went to see The Light Between Oceans the other day and it was way too sad for me! We also saw Jason Bourne which was of course just as those movies
I'm in a serious fashion mood lately but that always happens in the fall. Do you love fall clothes? They are so much prettier, I think. I decided to sign up for this fashion challenge led by Beth Roy of B. Styled. Here's a link to her site if you are interested in things like that. This is not an affiliate link or anything...it would just be fun to have blogging friends doing this together. From what I can see, her clothing suggestions are very doable for the average person. She calls it "casual chic". That sounds good to me. By the way, when I say "fashion",
I'm talking about jeans and whatever I put with them that day.
Let's talk about Harrison Ford...doesn't he just get better and better looking? Amen.
We went out to dinner with great friends Friday night
We got to sit outside on the deck under the trees and stars. It was wonderful!
Everything tastes better outside. Don't you think?
Fall always makes me miss the days when my boys were little and we'd go to the pumpkin patch. Such fun memories were made then and there. What are your favorite memories or thoughts of fall? In my husband's eyes it's all about Texas Aggies football.
I'm glad you were here to share these muffins with me.
You can go visit my Thoughts of Home friends today and then we'd love for you to link up tomorrow and share your tiered trays...or any trays you enjoy in your home.
