{recipe} pumpkin spice chocolate chip bread.

happy friday! why is it that one day you wake up and it is light out and then it seems like the next morning it is pitch black at 6 am? it makes me want to curl back up in bed and never leave. if it didn't feel like fall yet, it sure does now, all i can think about is how i am going to make my pumpkin seeds this year (once we carving our pumpkins on saturday) and what type of pumpkin treats i want to bake. the latest deliciousness i baked was pumpkin spice chocolate chip bread, it lasted about 24 hours, which translates into it was amazing! it is perfect for fall weather, a cozy blanket and a cup of tea! enjoy!

this weekend in the spirit of halloween we are attending a pumpkin carving party which has turned into a competition. i have no artistic ability, my sister got that gene, so i am depending on matt to bring home the victory for us! last year he carved an unbelievable pumpkin, free hand (the rest of us depended on stencils).

we have also been knocking off some wedding items on our to do list, including booking our honeymoon! but more on that on wednesday!
