Hey it's Tuesday! Time for our weekly coffee date. The last Tuesday of October, that's weird. If we were meeting for coffee this morning, I would make myself a really strong latte because last night was a bad night. Then I would offer you some of the pumpkin snack cake I made. Yum!
At our coffee date I would tell you about my weekend, my fabulous weekend. Saturday night we attended the 27th Annual "Bid for the Kids" put on by PCRF-Pediatric Cancer Research Foundation. Brent's best friend Jordan is very involved in the organization and his dad is this year's president. A fancy evening with a live auction, silent auction, magic show, live band, dancing, etc. etc. They raised a huge amount of money and it was very special to be a part of!
Sunday we invited Jordan and his girlfriend Kaitlin over for an evening of pumpkin carving and related festivities. It was perfect Autumn weather, crisp and cool. The house was filled with smells of cinnamon and pumpkin cake in the oven.
Wine, pizza, pumpkin carving, music, laughter, story telling and candy-eating. What could be better!
Pumpkins carved by: Jordan, Kaitlin, Brent, Me. Photos taken using the polaroid app on my iphone...thought I would try it out!
If we were meeting for coffee I would ask about your weekend. Is it raining were you are? I am still enjoying the sporadic rain, the overcast sky, and cool temps. What are your plans for Halloween? Are you eating lots of pumpkin baked goodies and candy? This will be a big weekend coming up...my birthday, the USC homecoming game and Halloween! Stay tuned and I will post the recipe for the delicious pumpkin streusel snack cake...it tastes a lot like coffee cake and is amazing in the morning with coffee, or for dessert!
