Perfect Pumpkin Pie.

IMG_6022With Thanksgiving coming up, I thought I’d share a recipe with you all for the perfect Pumpkin Pie.  My mom is from the mid-west and therefore she is a pie master.  However, this recipe came right from the can of pumpkin but is perfect because it’s not too sweet but it’s still extremely tasty.  Also, Chelsea and Lindsay got me this awesome pie pan and server from Anthropologie for my birthday so it was so fun to put it to use!

3/4 Cup Sugar
1/2 Tsp Salt
1 Tsp Cinnamon
1/2 Tsp Ginger
1/4 Tsp Cloves
2 Large Eggs
1 can pumpkin
1 can evaporated milk

Mix the above together and bake @ 425 degrees for 15 minutes then 350 degrees for 40-50 mins.  I used a pre-made pie crust but you can choose a crust of choice.

Thankful For These.

As a sort of tradition, we would like to tell you a few things we are thankful for the day before Thanksgiving. 2013 was the year of all kinds of discoveries, things we certainly couldn’t live without and we’d like to share them with you.

1. Spanx Leggings

spanx leggings(Leggings are always a must in case all of your skinnies are in the dirty laundry or you’ve eaten one too many morning cinnamon rolls and you just don’t feel skinny enough for your skinnies. But Spanx takes it one step further and keeps everything from falling out! Could I get a little extra syrup on those waffles please?)

2. DIY Projects/ Pinterest

nail polish keys

(2013 is the year I finally started using Pinterest, every day. I found this easy DIY project using only nail polish and keys. I’ll never jingle jangle for the wrong key again! DIY projects have saved me from countless weekends with no plans and covered my living room in gold dipped feathers!)

3. Gold Spray Paint

Gold Spray Paint(I have sprayed literally everything I own in gold. Rings, branches, feathers, pumpkins, you name it, I’ve sprayed it. Once I got a little taste of what the gold could do, I couldn’t stop. If you want to spice up the look of practically anything, take it outside and cover it in gold, baby!)

4. Plum Lipstick

lipstick(Plum is the only shade of lipstick that I think looks great on everyone. It brightens your look in an instant and it’s something I am very thankful for on my pasty days!)

What are you thankful for?

We’re taking a mini vacation and see you on Monday! Have a great holiday!
