Pumpkin Crumb Cake


This is only one of the many many things I baked to bring with me for Thanksgiving. It’s a pumpkin crumb cake which was really a choice of laziness and convenience given that I had some pumpkin puree and sour cream in my fridge already which meant I didn’t have to go to the store to get anything to make it. It smells delightfully autumnal and I think will travel well.

In addition this cake I also made:

  • Pumpkin chip brownies
  • Mint chip brownies
  • Chocolate chip brownies
  • 8ish dozen chocolate chip cookies

I forgot to take a picture of all the baked goods in the midst of getting everything together, but our house smells good and I didn’t burn anything and it’s not 2 AM so this is a total win.

Blue Skies


Let’s just mention that it was 68 degrees here today. Windy as heck, but 68 degrees. And let’s just mention that in two days it’s supposed to snow.

Today was a glorious day. I slept in and relaxed all morning which was great after the high intensity day that was yesterday. Andrew went out and got us a dozen bagels because apparently the two of us are on a mission to digest as many carbs as possible to kick off this Thanksgiving week.

Too Much Merch


I then spent a lot of time watching Gilmore Girls before going through all of the DemonCats merch that has taken over a good chunk of our house. I have somewhere in the 600 shirt range stuffing our closet, so if anyone wants a DC DemonCats shirt (and why wouldn’t you??), let me know.

Instead of our regular Sunday night dinner this week with Jen and Evan we headed down to Arlington and had dinner with Andrew’s parents. Beforehand we stopped at the mall to check out some furniture for our house that we may or may not acquire at an otherwise unknown time in the future. Mostly it has fueled the fire I have to start more random projects…
