Well hello there, Tuesday! Even though I'm operating on what feels like about 15 minutes of sleep, I'm going to make the best of you. For reasons unknown to me, I seem to be suffering from Newborn Syndrome and can't sleep for more than 3 consecutive hours at a time - boo! Thank goodness for large, steaming mugs of coffee and crisp morning air that wake me up. And an internet full of interesting facts about Ambien. Hmmmm....
Also making my hazy brain perk up this morning? The thought of spending some quality time with the JBS Mercantile kit for October. I've whipped out two pages thus far and have many more percolating in my head. Here's some sneaks!
I'm also banking on some good ol' sugary treats to get me through today. Thanks to my recent obsession with Pinterest, I've bookmarked tons of fall baking projects, two of which we whipped up this weekend. Say hello to these Brown Butter Pumpkin Spice Krispie Treats:
There's just a hint of Pumpkin Pie Spice mixed into the melted marshmellows, and the brown butter adds a rich, nutty flavor that's much more sophisticated than your ordinary krispie treat. Holy yummy.
Also quickly disappearing into our tummies are my friend Margie's Pumpkin Chip muffins. I had heard rumblings on Twitter that these famous fall treats were gifts from heaven, and now I can attest to that fact. They are amazingly moist, sweet, and utterly divine. Not to mention they make a lovely accompaniment to the aforementioned mug-o-coffee (which will undoubtedly be my main fashion accessory today.)
So to sum up - Sleeplessness. Scrapping. Sugar. And there you have it. Let's get this Tuesday rolling!
