Lately we have been leaving the windows open, baking and eating pumkin cobbler in celebration of my girl Lillian’s birthday, crafting (silhouette birthday card and birthday crown), and being busy with midterms and school projects.
Getting very excited for halloween, apple crisp, and future knitting projects.

A weekend of open windows and doors, pumpkin beer, nutella pancakes, mexican food in the breeze + sunshine, a really good church service, a short notice modeling shoot for a friend’s amazing clothing line, and this news.
October is beginning as a winner.

This weekend was so good, I don’t think I could make it better if I tried. We (Jeff) finally fixed up our old bikes (!!!!!!!) which means we finally got to ride. We hung out at Starbucks a lot, because they had a buy-one-get-one-free holiday drink deal this weekend. Caramel apple spice has officially changed my life. I might have gotten it two days in a row and kept the cups for a while after so I could smell them. Go ahead and judge me.
We got mexican food and saw Harry Potter on Friday and I thought it was excellent! No one told me I looked like Hermione, but that is ok. Then we had a spontaneous Saturday night pizza date at Vinnie Van Go Go’s. It felt like we went on so many dates this weekend. I loved it!! I made stew again on Sunday and I can’t even remember how many bowls we ate.
*Also, I am getting too excited about stores playing Christmas music, holiday lights popping up along the streets, and Christmas commercials on tv. EEEEeeeeeee!

Everything about this apple crisp reminds me of being at home with my family during the holidays and helping my mom make desserts to give to our friends. I really love staying in with no obligations- but hate feeling lazy- so baking has become one of my favorite things to do on days spent at home. There is also something really satisfying about making up a recipe or altering one and having it turn out perfectly. I didn’t make this one up, but I didn’t follow it exactly either, and it is pretty close to perfect.
I used this recipe as a guide.

This is what it looked like outside our apartment last night right before it got dark. Everything was tinted red; it actually looked like autumn. Perfect for fooling myself into thinking it’s cold enough for homemade pumpkin spice lattes and an adaption of this stew (both were scrumptious).
