This weekend was our first weekend back to normal since early December. I know there are people out there who are out of the house from sun up to sun down every weekend, but that is not us. Or I should say, not me. My kids would probably love it. Consequently, I was happy this weekend since my house was clean and I wasn’t running from one to do to another. My kids flip flopped between fighting and crying, and giggling and chasing. Luckily we had a birthday party Saturday afternoon so they could be the social butterflies that they are.
I promised the girls we would bake, so we decided to make Pumpkin Chocolate Chip muffins. I realize that recipe says gluten free/dairy free, but just use regular ingredients and make these immediately! They are so good! I looked at a few pumpkin muffin recipes, but went with this one because it had a full cup of pumpkin in it. What’s the point of a pumpkin muffin if it doesn’t have much pumpkin? I only did 1 cup of chocolate chips and that was plenty. These were so moist and so flavorful. The recipe made 18, and we ate five of them already. The rest are in the freezer, but I expect them to be gone by next weekend.
Since this post is a mish mash already, here’s my living room! I had these three canvases made for above the couch. Initially, I just did two canvases, but realized a third would be needed to even things out. I love the pictures and love the splash of color they add to the room, but I should have gone bigger. These are 16×20 and I wish I would have gone one size up. Live and learn!
