Now that I'm officially on maternity leave (woot, woot!) I thought I'd have all this time for blogging but, unfortunately, that hasn't exactly been the case. I have baby brain. As in, baby on the brain all. the. time. Maybe it's this giant belly growing out of me or the little munchkin doing summersaults inside, but to say my mind is otherwise occupied is an understatement.
BABY BRAIN.. WITH ROOM FOR FOOD
All my free time seems to be spent sewing, decorating, organizing and just thinking about how in approximately 3 weeks my life is about to change forever. It's kind of a big deal, yes? I guess that's why there isn't much room in there for much else. So please bear with me with all the baby talk, baby items and general lack of variety on this here blog. I'm doing my best to show restraint and not show you every cute baby item I come across (though I'm still going to show you some 😉
Luckily, I've still got room up in that ol' noggin for food... babies and food. This time of year I always get a craving for pumpkin. I came home from the grocery store with 3 cans today. I'm on the hunt for a new fall pumpkin recipe and in the meantime I think I'll be revisiting these Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Cookies ASAP.
mmmm, pumpkin. Please send recipes!
