But am I the only person out there who does not like to eat, drink or smell pumpkin???
I love making that stuff for the soldier because of how excited he gets but even just the smell of it (in any edible form) turns my stomach. I'm hoping that I might not be the only one of this kind left in the world :) I am really thankful though for all the recipes people post. Soon I need to pick out something unique to bake G.I. Joe. Last year for Thanksgiving I made him a Pumpkin Cheesecake. I totally gagged because of just about every single ingredient in it. Then we took it to my grandma's house for dinner and definitely left the whole thing there. I can't even remember if he ended up being able to try a piece or not! I felt so bad that in our rush we forgot it and even told him I'd make him a new one, but he knows the effect pumpkin has on me and just bought a pumpkin spiced latte instead.
So do you have any favorite (or least favorite) fall smells? My favorite has to be cinnamon! I get intoxicated when I walk into grocery stores this time of year because many of them around here sell those cinnamon brooms right by the door!
As much as I love fall, I miss the heat and humidity. Especially Florida heat! The kind that just begs you to splash in the nearest fountain.
And for all you Milies out there don't forget to join in the Weekly Round-Up that's hosted by my awesome friend Katie!
