I admit I’m not much of a baker, but I’ve been in the habit of whipping up some healthy-ish muffins maybe once a week or so to have on hand. Often they are easy blender banana muffins, but I decided to make something a little more seasonal this week.
These skinny pumpkin muffins were so easy that Lexie could even help, which is always so fun (and messy!).
The ingredients are simple and I do feel like they’re a less-fattening but still-delicious version of the real thing.
I found quite a few pumpkin muffin recipes but went with these because they called for oatmeal. I’m a sucker for any baked good that includes oatmeal (well, except oatmeal raisin…blech ; ).
Lexie was so proud of herself as she poured in each ingredient. Her very favorite thing to do is “cwack de eggs” and I have to say she’s pretty good at it!
They turned out absolutely delicious! The muffin portion is not too sweet on its own but the mini chocolate chips really makes them yummy.

Friends! I’ve missed you all! I’ve been crazy busy this week and just haven’t had time to blog…which is definitely not my favorite thing : ( On top of that, it has sorta hit me that we’re less than four months out from the wedding and it’s time to kick it into high gear in…

At the risk of being redundant, I had some more fun playing with my new cabinet. I also found a cute little silver compote at the thrift store today for $1.50. All it took was some elbow grease to polish her up and she was as good as new. So here’s what I did with…
Well…I did it…I spent more money than I ever have in my life and bought real, authentic, new furniture. Not from a thrift store, antique mall, flea market or Craigslist. Yes, I have bought a new kitchen table, coffee table and bed in my short adulthood, so technically this is my fourth “real” furniture purchase…but…
