So there are not a lot of trends I buy into. I have the oldest iPhone and I only broke down and got it last year as my deployment present. I don’t have a radio in my car so I would have no clue what music is cool now although I hear Miley Cyrus is trying to make a come back…. maybe everyone should break their car radio like mine. I’ve been wearing the same jeans for 3 years and I don’t know what the brand is, Cheap Monday I think? I don’t get what the big deal about Jen Hatmaker is. And I’ll never wear feathers in my hair…. is that still cool?

But there is one trend that I buy into every single year hook, line, and sinker. PUMPKIN EVERYTHING. We already know my problem with candy corn pumpkins.

But I made my own pumpkin syrup the other day so that I wouldn’t spend money on Pumpkin Spice Lattes and sweet. Lord. mamajamma. So I’m sharing with you my mojo. It was easy to make and every morning I mix it with the cream in my coffee and it’s like an explosion on Pinterest and Fall in my mouth.

You’re welcome,

Your pumpkin obsessed out of touch friend.



1.5 cups water
1.5 cups sugar
1 tsp. cinnamon
2 tsp. pumpkin pie spice
1 cup pureed pumpkin

Heat water and sugar in a pot until sugar is dissolved, don’t boil. Add spices and pumpkin and stir. Cook for 5 minutes, don’t let it boil. Let it cool and put it in a cute mason car or whatever container you’d wish.  Just add it to Half & Half in your coffee or if you have a fancy espresso machine you can make your own lattes. I also have it on good authority it goes great over a pound cake… just sayin’. There ya have it!
