Moving stuff

10 Nov

This weekend we made the first step in getting the house ready for the new addition. We moved our spare bedroom queen size bed down to my Mom’s house in Annapolis. Luckily, she was in the market for a queen size bed and it fit great in one of her spare bedrooms (and we have a comfy place to stay over the holiday). Since we no longer have a place for visitors to stay, we purchased a new pull-out couch this weekend for our loft. Luckily, there was a huge Veteran’s Day sales so we got a great price. It is all about bargain shopping at the moment! The couch will be at the house on Saturday. Here is a preview:

The best part of Fall….

10 Nov

Kerry’s favorite season is Fall. He loves the weather, the colors and of course, football. This weekend was not a great football weekend for our teams (Tennessee lost to Wyoming, Colorado State lost to Air Force and Penn State lost to Iowa). However, my favorite part of fall is pumpkin flavored things- pumpkin spice lattes from Starbucks are the best- and now I have added two new favorite recipes to the list of pumpkin related baking I already have. First, pumpkin cookies (recipe here). They were super easy and were completely devoured by my office in less than 30 minutes. I left off the icing but I am sure that it would be just as tasty with the icing.

Then this weekend, I heard about Rachael Ray’s Pumpkin Whoopies Pies and decided to give them a try as well. Yum! I have the ones that were not eaten sitting on my desk and I am sure they will be gone soon.
