Light My Fire


This is my favorite part of fall and winter. Sometimes there's nothing better than sipping some hot cocoa next to a blazing fire. Or in my case, eating some pumpkin pie. (Yes, I'm addicted to pumpkin, as you are all aware. And yes, I probably need help. But I'm not quite ready to admit there's a problem. Only when I gain about 10 lbs. in a week will I see it as an issue that must be resolved immediately.)

Now, all we need is a bear skin rug and some Marvin Gaye in the background to make this night complete. *wink*

That sounds really nice- sadly it was 70 degrees here today... how I long for fall (sigh)

Ohhh, do you want a really yummy (says the friends and husband, I don't do pumpkin) and easy pumpkin dip recipe? Let me know!

It never gets cold enough where I live for that, but it looks cozy :)

I love to make pumpkin pie but I hate to eat pumpkin pie--isn't that strange? You and I are a match made in heaven...

Everything pumpkin IS the greatest! We are supposed to cool down here in the next couple of days so maybe, just maybe, we can break in the fire place!

I LOVE pumpkin, it's so good. So jealous of the fire place. It's pretty much all I'm going to be looking for when we move...and not one of those silly gas ones you light with a remote, my parents have that and I miss the smell and the sound. Glad you guys had a fun night ;)

Mnn pumpkin latte....

And me? I live in the coldest frickin place in the lower 48.

I would like someplace a little less frosty...

Here's to a pumpkin spice latte by the fire...

Oh my gosh I've never met another pumpkinaholic!!! Should we start our own club?? PAA??

Have you tasted the Baskin Robbins pumpkin ice cream? Mmmmmmmmm. There are so many other pumpkin flavored things that I can't get enough of. This season does NOT last long enough for me! Especially in Florida!

Yum. Thanks for getting me to salivate all over the place. Didn't you do this to me with coffee recently?

I am a pumpkin pie junkie. I always make 2 pies - one for the guests and one for me. ;-)

Oh yeah, also, the house we bought in 2005 - part of the appeal was that it has TWO gas fireplaces - one in the family room and one in the formal living room - I freaking love it!
