Pumpkin Spice Muddy Buddies

October is halfway over and today I am sharing pumpkin recipe #3 of 5. This weeks post also features a special blog hop at the end where you will find links to several other fall inspired recipes from some of my closest blogging friends. If you are looking for a new recipe to inspire you to start baking or cooking, I feel certain you will find at least one to try.

Pumpkin Spice Muddy Buddies

Like last week’s recipe, this week was another first for me. Believe it or not, I had never made muddy buddies before. Why? I have no idea. But I am starting to think I was better off that way, since I can’t seem to keep my hand out of the bowl.

For The Love Of Mugs {Exchange Announcement}

There are two ways I like my coffee, with loads of creamer and in one of my favorite mugs. That simple yet magical combination is what makes me smile when I pour my morning cup of coffee. But it hasn’t always been this way. In the past Russell had his mugs and I had nothing. I used the plain and boring mugs that came with our dishes.

Then things changed.

I picked up one mug, and another, then another. Before long my collection had grown.
Today I am sharing a few of my favorite mugs with you and details on how you can add another mug to your collection!

The first mug I purchased was this one. It is itty bitty but if I am in a hurry it holds the perfect amount of coffee. I bought it on my first IKEA trip with Anna, and she bought the same one in plum.

I received this mug in an exchange I did last Christmas. I use this mug on those days that I just don’t feel like I’ll make it. AKA Mondays. 

This mug was a present from a secret admirer who left it on my porch after I posted a photo of it on social media. I still feel loved every time I use it. Thank you secret admirer :).

I bought this gem from the Dollar Tree, just because it made me laugh. Yup, still makes me laugh. 

And my precious favorite. I use this mug all day, every day from mid September through mid November. It was the last one in stock at Wal-Mart last year and if they happened to get them again this year I’d buy another just so I don’t have to wash mine all the time. I also like the idea of having a back up just in case something unspeakable was to happen.

I do realize that missing from my collection is a Christmas mug. I really need a good Christmas mug to make Christmas coffee seem more festive and July days seem more cheerful #ohyesIwould.

Onto that announcement…

Recently my friend Stephanie from Wife Mommy Me asked if I wanted to co-host a mug exchange. I didn’t have to think long before answering with a yes.
