Pumpkin Pics

so i went pumpkin picking yesterday and sunday. sunday was a good day, but i stupidly forgot my camera. silly me. monday, i remembered it, but am still debating on whether or not i like the pictures or not. i ended up having pumpkin pie from boston market sunday night.
brownie chunk cookies

tonight i am for sure going to make these cookies. im doubling the recipe (i know, who cares, right?) so i can make four dozen.

so, i've been going to starbucks this week and they finally have their pumpkin cream cheese muffin. i endure the spring and summer months just to get my hands on this amazing work of baking skills.
me and my mom are going to go pumpkin picking tomorrow. sure, it's just at the farmers market, but were going. i'll take pictures.

The Ting Tings

their drum, blurred
blurred again

So last night was pretty much the best night ever. okay, of this year at least. i sware it was amazing. i saw the Ting Tings at the House of Blues. it was a smaller room so you could hear it all, and it was a little more intimate.

i would have taken some more pics, but they would have all been the same. we stayed until there was only about ten people (regular attendees) in the tavern. while i was waiting though i sort of moshed my way through to where some other girls were. when they saw that i had a vinyl (i really had just bought it from there) they said that i had to get it signed. so one of them gave me their all access pass.


unfortunately though i was too much of a weenie and i only went so far as across the rope. whoopee.

anyways, the opener sucked but the ting tings rocked.

Darn it. I made the absolutely delicious pancakes with amazing (semi) homeade syrup. Maple Glazed Apple Pancakes with Pumpkin-Maple Syrup. (i made it up all by me-self.) Yum. And I didnt take any pictures. It looked pretty too. If you havent guessed already, i love to cook. I was browsing the September issue of Bon Appetit and i came across these yummy-looking cookies. Brownie Chunk Cookies. I think I'll make them tonight them bring them along when i go to this fall campout.

Au Revoir Mesdames(or missieurs)!

Alice Temperley's loft

i understand its a lot of photos and it may have taken you a while to get to this (hopefully you checked out the pictures)
anyways, that is alice temperleys place in Notting Hill.
i read the original article in Elle magazine (october 08)
they had a lot more pictures online. i sware i am falling in love with it. when i move to NYC after i graduate college (i dream far and wide) i am so looking for a place like this. or atleast with a bathtub in the middle of a floor (hopefully with a loft over it. if not, ill build it, okay the carpenters will)
i love.

chick fil a

i am very, very frustrated at chick fil a. today i have gotten one of their formerly magnificent chicken salad sandwich. they have decided to change its magnificence.
they put lettuce on it.
they also decided to put it in a different container.
they also decided to make it chunkier.

where did it go?

ok, well, there was this old retro cartoon down there (its labeled snugglepuss) it was a video, and now i dont know where it went. im serious. it was right there...right there...right there...there right....


yes, i realize that its on its side.
this is my hair. this is me.
+im not wearing makeup+


i hate cleaning. my dads out of town (NYC-the big apple) and my mom's making me clean the entire house. also, she keeps saying 'freakin' which gets really annoying after youve heard 10 times in the past minute. ew. you know, if you get the packaged coffee from starbucks, it just isnt the same. it tastes disgusting. especially when youre drinking it in front of a computer screen (i dont know that that has anything to do with it, but jeez, this post was really random) (by the way--my favorite coffee is french roast, ya i know that you cant get that anymore and you have to get pike place, which is cheaper, so thats kinda better) (also, just so you know i hate using email or texting expressions--no wonder the bill is so high-- such as jsyk, or brb, or aka, &c.)

restaurant--dallas, TX

i know most people do not live in dallas, TX--much less Texas, but i have just got to express my feelings about this one restaurant in the Bishop Arts District (if any of you do live in Dallas, you probably, or, hopefully know where this is. please try it out) anyway, i have to brag about this. their fries are awesomely amazing, the sweet potato fries are the best. their ketchup (they call it catsup) is made with cinnamon and is entirely extreme. and their lemonade, the best part of the entire meal is heavenly heavenly. it comes in blueberry, strawberry, and peach. also, what i just realized is that i havent even mentioned the name--its Tillman's Roadhouse. this is amazing. IF YOU EVER COME TO DALLAS--TRY THIS ONE OUT!

while i'm at it, here are my top dallas restaurants (in no particular order):

1. Tillman's Roadhouse (Bishop Arts District) http://tillmansroadhouse.com/
