Pumpkin Pie Cupcakes

So today it all started for me...once you crack your first can of pumpkin it is like you just can't stop!!   My whole family loves all things pumpkin and now that I am packing lunches we have lots of muffins and squares to make for him to take in his lunch and for us to enjoy here.  Today's treat turned out a little more "fancy" than what I was going for.    My original plan was to make these pumpkin pie cupcakes but since I was planning on taking them to my friend, who just had the cutest little baby ever (I know I say that about all babies....but really she is sweet!),  I really needed to cook these in muffin liners.   Even though the recipe states "paper liners make it difficult to remove the cupcakes" I didn't listen and used them anyways.  The recipe was right it was very hard to get the liner off and the cupcakes didn't look as pretty as I was hoping, so I put my brain to good use and decided I would stuff the cupcake into a little mason jars and top with whip cream.   And because the cupcakes are so little I did two layers.

The family enjoyed this special treat.  They tasted a lot like a crustless pumpkin pie and some of them might have been a little too gooey for my liking.  So if I was to do this again I would bake maybe a little longer.  I did get 18 cupcakes out of the this recipe and the batch that I did make with my silicon liners came out prefect, so no more paper liners for this recipe...unless you want to look super fancy ;)

Book Bag Solution

I love looking at pictures on blogs or pinterest for ideas on how to  store kids book bags.  This year with our oldest going to school, another one in piano and 2 still needing a diaper bag, I really wanted a place to hang up book bags.  We don't have too much space but we were able to use this vertical space in the hall way next to the kitchen to hang 3 book bags.   

I love when we use our space to its fullest potential.  How do you keep book bags organized?

Getting Organized

Today I am moving out of the kitchen to show all you wonderful readers a way to organize your little girl's headbands.  We only have 1 little girl in the house and she LOVES wearing headbands.  They were everywhere so we decided to get them all together in one spot.  I had looked on pinterest and found the cutest ideas for making wonderful and decorative headband holders but due to space in our home and that the kids share rooms we decided something in their bathroom would work the best.  So off I went to Walmart to find a toilet paper or hand towel holder.  I found this one in the hardware section and knew it would be prefect for both types of headbands that Lady J has.   Now all the headbands are in one place and she can easy get them and put them back at the end of the day when she is finished.
