Thumbs Up Thursday - Pumpkin Edition

We've finally dropped below the 100 degree mark and fall is in the air!  I love the fall, the cool weather and the excitement that the season brings.  With the morning lows in the 60s this week, I am in the mood.  I dedicate this Thumbs Up to you, fall season!

Thumbs Up for Starbuck's Pumpkin Spice Latte.  Welcome back old friend!  I know fall is here when the PSL is back on the menu.  Although my order has the decaf thrown in the mix, the tasty goodness is still the same. Grande Decaf Pumpkin Spice Latte Skinny, No Whip please!
Thumbs Up for the pumpkin decoration explosion on Pinterest.  I'm still trying to decide which of these pumpkins I will attempt to recreate and adorn the Meabon doorstep with.  Any preferences?
Thumbs Up for Gayle Skelton's Famous Pumpkin Dip!  Gayle is a dear friend of mine who is amazingly talented in the entertainment department.  In our Four Seasons days together, Gayle marked the begninning of fall by bringing my favorite fall culinary treat into the office.  This is a must as we kick off the fall season!

Pumpkin Dip
(2) 8 oz cream cheese
15 oz can of pumpkin

(2) cup powdered sugar

(1) Tsp cinnamon

(1) Tsp ginger

Whip and serve with ginger snaps.

Thumbs Up for the return of football season!  Here we go Steelers, here we go (clap, clap)!!!!

And Wreck 'em Tech!!!

I love fall.I would be up north if I had my way, right now and come back Nov. 1. I have more fall decorations then any other holiday. Or correction, I used to have! cutting back but fall is my favorite. If I could get a tall dry corn stalk I would. And I would preserve it each year. I can't have real pumpkins like when I lived in Ohio, which make me sad.

I vote on the lighted pumpkins!

How do Thursdays come so fast?

I vote lighted pumpkins too! And can I just say that a very very very very tiny part of me is jealous that you are pregnant in the fall. I truly believe that it is the bestest time to be pregnant! So, enjoy this fun season with the healthy bun in yo oven!!!!

Still laughing at dada stinky toots!!

We make a twinkle light pumpkin each year and it is my favorite. Plus using a drill on a pumpkin is a little bit fun!
