With fall time comes the inevitable explosion of everything pumpkin – and I’m really not that mad about it. Today we’re talking food, because if I got into everything pumpkin (hello, home decor!!) we’d be here til Christmas.
I’m sorry to admit that I do not like PSL’s though. I know I know I’m killing my white girl status right now.
Anywho, I’ve gathered together, for your convenience, a bunch of pumpkin recipes to try out this fall season. Some sweet treats, some snacks, yummy dinners and more. Enjoy!
I’ve always been a huge fan of the farmhouse style for your home, especially in the kitchen.
The only downside to loving this style has been the price tag that comes with some of these products! Some decor pieces and furniture can get pretty pricey, and it’s not overly in my budget to shell out that much cash on home decor.
Our kitchen table got pretty scratched up in our latest move (3rd move in less than 18 months… yeah), and we were looking to upgrade anyways.
I always wanted a big wooden, farmhouse inspired table, but that just wasn’t going to be in the budget (also we don’t eat at the table thaaat much, so I wasn’t about to shell out hundreds of dollars on a table that’s mostly just decoration LOL.)
We threw around the idea of completely building ourselves a table (which is still going to happen someday!), but that also came with a bit of a price tag and was a lot of work for the one day we had allotted to get this project done LOL.
Now I can bet that the majority of people don’t like to get up too much earlier than they need to in the morning for work. I’m sure there are those select few that get up hours before so they can have a relaxing morning.
But when you’re like me and start work at six o’clock in the morning (!!!), you’ve got to find a way not to be left rushing around all morning.
Also, rushing around in the morning to get everything you need to get done just sets a horrible tone for the rest of your day. You feel anxious, frustrated, and probably still pretty friggin tired. Not a great start for the day.
I’ve come to notice all of the little time savers I can do the night before or in preparation so that my mornings can run smoother.
Yes, I’m still tired in the morning (I’m up at 5, what can ya do), but I never feel rushed or anxious walking out the door. And I owe that to these tips and tricks.
For those who are Canadian, you’ll of course know about the big celebration this coming July 1st.
But for all those who aren’t Canadian, it’s our 150th birthday this year!
July 1st is Canada’s birthday, and this year is a very momentous year because it’s our 150th. The celebrations are bigger than normal, and you really can’t go anywhere without being bombarded with #canada150 stuff.
In all seriousness, I love being a Canadian. Our freedoms are endless, the people are so nice and I’m so proud to live here. Our views are gorgeous, and I love how diverse it gets all across the country.
