We’re going pumpkins!

Hello Saturday!!!

Wow – we had a great day today! We went to the pumpkin patch to get pumpkins – this was the first time for Jordan! We all had so much fun!

It was a little chilly but not bad at all. VERY muddy, though! I did not wear the proper shoes – my white slip on tennis shoes. Yikes, talk about a mess! We each picked one out to carve. I can’t wait to see how Jordan reacts to the “guts” of the pumpkins 🙂

The day started out kind of “pumpkiny” – I made pumpkin pancakes!

Marc didn’t feel like pumpkin in his pancakes so I was man handling TWO at one time 😉

All I did to make my pumpkin pancakes was add some 100% canned pumpkin (not pumpkin pie mix) to my regular batter. I added some nutmeg and cinnamon and a tad of agave syrup and whisked it together. They ended up cooking longer than regular ones, that’s why they look so dark.
I used this can of pumpkin mix:

I have had it for a few weeks now and wasn’t sure when I was going to use it. Now I HAVE to find some recipes to use it with! I was thinking of adding some to my shakes in the morning…
Any ideas?

After the farm, we went to the mall to pick up Marc some cologne. I ended up looking at some Halloween costumes, too. I don’t have one yet and Marc wants me to dress up. No offense, but they are all slutty and totally not my style. I feel very uncomfortable showing that much skin. Of course, Marc wants me to wear something tight and revealing but I just don’t know. :sigh: I guess I am just really self conscious of myself still. I feel that I look heavier than I really am. I did see some really cute ones so I probably will just suck it up and buy one after all. It might be fun…

Did I mention that we bought a new stove a few days ago? While we were driving back home we received a call that they were going to be at our house soon. YAY!
This was our old stove:

I was really nice and nothing was wrong with it, but we wanted our appliances to be stainless. We replaced the fridge last month and this month we replaced the stove.
Isn’t it beautiful!?

Now all of our appliances match! Woohoo!

Well, I am off to make some dinner. 🙂 Have a great night everyone!

    Sounds like a fun day guys! Which pumpkin patch did you go up to? I am a total pumpkin freak and I have always wanted to try making pumpkin pie on my own from an actual pumpkin but never knew how. I just happened to read this article the other day and now I am going to get some pumpkins at Smallwoods tomorrow to try it out this week! http://www.moneysavingmom.com/money_saving_mom/2009/10/guest-post-making-your-own-pumpkin-puree.html
