Recipes & Hair-do's.

Fall is in full swing in the DeMars household.  I wait for this time all year, and when it finally comes-I wollow in a mixture of happy & sad emotions.  Happy, because it's the best time of year-everything feels right.  The air smells fresh (aka decaying leaves), the colors are beautiful, the clothes are awesome (seriously-I hate summer clothing), and the food is amazing.  Sad, because I know that it's so short lived, and that in a few short weeks I will be anxiously waiting next year's harvest.

In honor of this amazing time of year, I wanted to share two recipes.  One I have tried-consumed-and conquered.  The other I plan on trying tomorrow during Ingrid's nap time (which is often referred to as mommy-time).

Pretzel Cookies with Chocolate and Peanut Butter Chips
{I made these yesterday, and they are half gone.  Granted, they only make about 18-20 cookies total.  Stop whatever you're doing and make these.  Now.}

Home Made Spiced Pumpkin Latte
{How AMAZING does this look?  and paired with a cookie and the newest episode of Teen Mom *Hey, don't judge-we all have our guilty pleasures*....sounds like I have my "mommy-time" planned for tomorrow}

I did it.  I dived in head first.  I let go of all my pre-conceived notions that long hair=femininity.  I cut my hair. The first few hours after I did it I totally panicked.  But now....I love it.  It's short.  It's easy.  It's totally different than anything I've ever done.....
