(probably a little pre mature considering i was a little warm wearing them, but i can’t help but throw them on!

notice how i am the only one in a sweater! ha! i love sweater weather so please mother nature, send it my way!  and something i love almost as much a sweater weather is pumpkin! this time of year welcomes all things pumpkin and i have a tasty recipe for you today! i originally found this recipe at cleaneatingmag.com and adapted it a bit! so here is my version.
