Just thought you might want to take a quick look at what I look at all day on my computer at work :) Definitely helps me get through the work day. Hubs took this pic with his iphone from a roof top bar looking toward the gulf last weekend! Would not have missed the view (or that moment) for the world.

What helps get you through the work day?

Whole Wheat Pumpkin Muffins

So a few weeks ago, against my better judgment, I branched out and made an attempt at FANNETASTIC FOOD'S Whole Wheat Pumpkin Muffins. As some of you know, I am not the BIGgest fan of Pumpkin, but thought I would give them a try anyway. And much to my surprise they were not overwhelming Pumpkin-y! I made normal sized muffins, but next time I will likely make a mini-muffin version (I am obsessed with my new mini-muffin pan) and hopefully they will taste like little bites of Fall. In addition to making a mini version next time, I will not use muffin baking cups, just spoon the batter right into my new non-stick pan! You should give them a try (and forgive me for forgetting to take a pic of the completed product)!

I still had my doubts about the Pumpkin taste right about here :)

Going in the oven!

 Enjoy your seasonal treat! :)

What. a. week.

Where did this week go?

Who knows.

I am just glad it is over :) It was hectic and sleepless, but is now over. All that matters. So, T.G.I.F. Bloggers!

I hope you all have a wonderful and restful weekend! Mine will likely be filled with studying, reading, cleaning, sleeping and hopefully a bit of beach time if it warms up!
