Fun Fall Resolutions

Standard

With fall creeping around the corner, it is a good idea for some new resolutions to turn over a new leaf. We make resolutions every January so why not revaluate them in the fall!

Here are a few resolutions I have in mind for myself that might interest you.

1)   Take the time to do what YOU love: Fall is my favorite season because of the crisp, cool weather so I am going to take the time to enjoy it. I will take the time to go to more football games (both OSU and The Dallas Cowboys)- Go Cowboys! So, whatever you love about fall; take the time do spend time doing what you love this season!

2)    Positivity is key: I am not a negative person but I do find myself from time to time complaining about all the small problems in life- tests, bad drivers or the weekend staff at McDonalds. Wow, not good! But, this Fall I am going to try my best to stay more positive and focus on all the beautiful things about fall. Life does not have to be perfect to be wonderful.

3)   Learn something new: I know I am always learning something new in class each week but this month I want to pick up a few educational books or learn new words from the dictionary on my own time. There are so many neat things in life I have yet to learn, so why not better myself now while I am sill young. I always have thought we can never have too much wisdom!

Thanks for reading my resolutions! Enjoy fall!

Fall Festivities

Standard

Falling leaves, crisp cool air and the sweet smell of spice cake. If you are anything like me, this means it is time for fall. And for me, this is where my heart is. It also means it is time for my favorite holiday, Halloween.

With Halloween right around the corner, many of you are probably trying to think of festive desserts to make for either your kids, boyfriends or even your parents. I love to bake so I have the perfect treat in mind. Also, this is a dessert I grew up enjoying every Halloween.

If you love cupcakes and lots of chocolate, the Creepy Crawly Cupcake recipe is a winner for you. It reminds me a lot of the dessert dirt cup, except it is a cupcake.

This is an easy and quick dessert that takes very little time. So pop in a scary movie while baking this and get in the spirit for this creepy, crawly treat!

Here is the Creepy Crawly Cupcake recipe:
