smile, it's fall!

this week, i want to

- use the crock pot (beef stew, yummmm)
- bake pumpkin chocolate chip cookies (thanks chloe & olivia)
- continue improving my tomato sauce recipe and make my delicious cavatappi bake. oh yumm.
- take pictures! (my hair is now dark brown & shorter for fall)
- keep up in french
- order photos to be printed so we can frame them & hang them on our walls (and then maybe i can actually show what our house is looking like these days)
- put things in the mail
- pretend it's cooler than it really is and take "brisk" walks with levi
- stay positive

what's on your to do list this week? any delicious pumpkin recipes to share with me?


  1. Pumpkin Spice Cupaceks--one of my favorite recipes!

    Today I am going shopping to buy myself a birthday present! I will also be eating lots of cake and candy and not going to the gym :)

  5. please do! take some photos of your new hair! i bet its great

    and the crockpot. oh my. yumm

  6. I have a busy week. It is "Hell" week for me at the theater. My show opens on Friday so I am focusing solely on the show. I don't have any time for anything other than rehearsals. Its crunch time! Just making sure my lines are solid and that my accent is clear (I play an Irish maid) and that my monologue of Edgar Allan Poe's Tell Tale Heart is memorized. Stressing! hehe but fun....speaking of pumpkin cookies. I have a gluten-free pumpkin white chocolate chip cookie recipe. Yum!

  7. pumpkin choc chip cookies? totally on my way to check it out!

  8. I need to finish getting ready for my son's birthday, get my son to the doctor since it is his birthday, get my daughter a dentist appointment she says a tooth is hurting, and get the house all clean because of my son's birthday..
    yeah my life really does rotate around my kids.

  9. i am eating those cookies right now! they are so good! i love that picture by the way! and i like the stay positive part. i need to do that!!

  10. Would You be interested in a Sweet potato apple soup recipe? Cause I can send that one over easy peasy puddin' and pie.

  11. I think I'm going to steal your pumpkin chocolate chip cookie idea (and Olivia's recipe)! I have some great recipes that I'll share as soon as I find them (giving them to you by memory would not be a good idea).

    I hope this week goes the way you want it to. Isn't this time of year exciting?!

  12. sounds like an awesome week!

    i just posted a YUMMY pumpkin recipe on my blog last week:


  13. jasmine, you're the best :) your list made me feel inspired to do some little fall/cold weather activities. it sure is cold here though! maybe i will make some delicious soup and toast for dinner tonight . . mmm.

  14. what a great list - I always dye my hair darker during autumn and winter as well :)

    I also really want to use my slow cooker, beef stew sounds yummy!

  15. i love crock pots! my mom gave me our crock pot from home (it's the one i grew up with and is a terrible olive green with vegetables on the outside- i absolutely love it) to take to college with me and i can't wait to use it. do you have any good recipes your recommend?

  16. Those recipes sound SO good! I love fall so much, it's ridiculous. Just wish we (because I know you're in SoCal too!) lived in a place with more fall like weather. Sigh...

    Hope you're having a good week Jasmine! Can't wait to see your brown hair.

  17. I'm going to have to hear about these pumpkin chocolate chip cookies! My personal favorite pumpkin treats are pumpkin pancakes. (you should have a contest to see who can say pumpkin the most times in a comment...) Fall is the greatest!
