These Pumpkin Spice Muffins topped with a Pecan Streusel are the epitome of a perfect Fall breakfast or snack..you’re going to want them over and over again!
If you know me, you know I love shopping. Like, I really, really love it. I am entirely a cliche when I use shopping as therapy, totally not just an excuse. 😉 I love all kinds of shopping and I go back and forth between loving online shopping or not. Lately I’ve been super into going to the store. It usually gives me a break for a couple hours, and a lot less returns when I can actually try things on or see them in person. Welll… since I moved to Missouri, (last Monday), I hadn’t done any shopping..I’m embarrassed to admit that’s a long time for me…BUT there is nothing around the base, other than a million chain restaurants. So Saturday, we packed up our kids, and trucked the 92 miles to the closest shopping mall.
That’s right 1 1/2 hours, with two sick kids, in the pouring rain. In all honestly it wasn’t a selfish trip. (Other than the fact that I desperately still needed the perfect Fall boots, which I ended up ordering online last night anyways..) but there were other things we needed. Let’s just say the entire day was a disaster. From the moment we left. Screaming children, pouring rain, tantrums, blisters, and no luck.
After driving 184 miles on Saturday, you know what we came back with? B&BW Hand soap. That.is.it. My husband and I were laughing out butts off as we pull off the exit home with one child screaming and the other telling him to “shhhh..” We put our ourselves, and our poor sick kids, through misery. For freakin’ hand soap. At least our hands are clean.
So the moral of the story…no more physical shopping here in Missouri. Online only folks. Which could result in a lot of returns, but at least I don’t have to leave my desk, pj’s, or wine. Score. So I finally decided on a pair of boots, hopefully I like them in person. Next purchase, I’ve been shopping around like crazy for a UV light, and gel polishes to do at home shellac manicures. I’ve been leaning towards IBD Gel Polishes, but I’ve heard great things about both Sally Hansen and Gelish. Has anyone tried them, thoughts? Recommendations?
Ok ok, onto my families favorite muffins ever. Cinnamon Pumpkin Muffins with a Pecan Streusel. When I stayed with my parents for a few weeks, I learned my little brother, who is leaving for basic training next month (eek!), has a thing for pumpkin. As in, its his favorite thing ever. This little tid bit of info came at the perfect time! So while I was staying with them, I bombarded them with lots of pumpkin, there weren’t any complaints from them, which means I have LOTS of pumpkin goodies, both sweet and savory to share with you over the next few weeks. yay!
First up are these incredible Cinnamon Pumpkin Muffins with a Pecan Streusel. All I really need to say is this…when I pulled the first pan out of the oven, six muffins were missing in the first 5 minutes..from two people, and I wasn’t one of them. By noon the next day, the entire batch was gone, and my dad kept pushing me to make them again. He got treated with something equally as mouthwatering, coming to you soon. These muffins aren’t dense at all, they’re light, fluffy and oh my gah..I’m stopping. Just make them. mmk?
