No Birthday Dessert : (

and no picture b/c it's won't let me upload for some reason. Oh well.

Jericho is still sleeping, I wonder if she is growing, she's been taking long naps and sleeping all night again (she wasn't earlier this week) or maybe she just not feeling the best. Either way I've been enjoying a little extra time in the after noon with no little one to keep entertained.

I just got done making dinner and was going to make myself a birthday dessert. I can't decide between chocolate oil cake, caramel corn, pumpkin cookies, pumpkin bread or pumpkin pie. Can you tell I have 2 cups of pumpkin in my fridge that I need to use. Although I'm tempted to make skip the pumpkin stuff and make the cake or caramel corn b/c that is what I want and tomorrow is my birthday. And I think I just decided that caramel corn is sounding quite scrumptious. I wonder if our drive-in movie theater is open yet? Probably not and even if it was it's freezing here, I don't know that I'm brave enough, although if I get to snuggle close to the love of my life I think I might just stay warm enough!

Back to the birthday dessert. I have 2 problems with choosing the caramel corn (or maybe the chocolate cake) 1. I really do need to use the pumpkin. 2. I checked the cabinet and I don't have enough turbinado sugar to make any of the desserts listed above. I could run to the store to get some, but the nearest store that carries it (for a decent price) is 25+ minutes away and I'm really don't want to taking a trip up there. So there may be no birthday dessert tomorrow. I know it's sad but maybe there will be an after birthday dessert instead. Seth is taking me out tomorrow night for my birthday and I believe we are heading up towards Lori's so I will be able to pick up some sugar, with my sugar, then!
