Fall Desserts

Yesterday I shared some ideas for savory fall meals so today I thought I'd share some desserts that I think sound perfect for the season. Of course pumpkin is the star ingredient in all of these!

Fall Food

I'm so excited that fall seems to be making its appearance here in Georgia! There really isn't one thing I don't love about fall. I love the cooler weather, pumpkin flavored everything, skinny jeans, boots and scarves, dark nights, crock pot meals...the list goes on and on! This week I thought I'd share some of the things I'm most excited about and it only makes sense to start with my favorite topic, FOOD!

One of my favorite things to do in my spare time is browse Pinterest. I really don't know what anyone did before this website was invented. Here are some food ideas I've pinned recently.

Weekend Recap

Fall is almost here! You wouldn't know it by the weather we are currently experiencing, but I'm holding out hope that the cooler temperatures are right around the corner.

  • I'm really enjoying my new job! I find it both fun and challenging to be working with 22 four year old's that are all in different developmental stages. We have some that are pretty advanced and can write/spell their names and we have others that don't know the correct way to hold a pencil or even recognize the first letter of their name. But they all have one thing in common. They are eager and excited to be learning every day! It's amazing to see how fast they pick up on something new and how excited they are to show you their progress. 
  • Labor Day weekend was pretty uneventful for us. Chris has been working crazy hours and Friday was actually the first time I saw him since the Sunday before. I go to bed very early and he was coming home really late so we kept missing each other. On Friday night we went to eat at Local Republic. If you are anywhere near the Lawrenceville area, you should definitely check it out! They have great food and an awesome craft beer selection as well.
  • I never thought I'd be the person to wear Crocs, but I broke down and bought two pairs over the weekend. I have to wear closed-toe shoes for work and they have to be something I can wear for 12+ hours a day. My co-teacher swears by this pair of Crocs and the style is pretty cute so I decided to copy her. I have to admit they are super comfortable!
  • Football starts this week!!!!!!
  • Sorry there are no pictures to go along with this post. Boring, I know...
  • Have a great 4 day week!
