…hello, old friend…

… so i’ve been a bit MIA lately despite it being my favorite time of year for baking and playing hostess…

…fa la la la Fridays went completely out the window… and a few of you have noticed…

…i have been doing the things i love  and enjoying the season’s greetings very much… but,the truth is… this happy planner just got hit with my biggest challange yet… and i’ve hit the ground running…

… and that challenge is….

…MY OWN WEDDING(!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!)….

…tada… we’re engaged…

.. he proposed November 14th, 2009…

… and i promptly said, “you betcha!”…

… thus the whirlwind began…

… we’re getting married in July 2010… and this means that my attention is going to be slightly more focused on another blog for just a bit…

… our wedding blog… where we’ll be chronicling the process of planning this shindig and the little life we’re excited to start together…

… treatstoshare will remain up and running… but, probably won’t get quite as much attention- i’m sorry to say…

… i would love for you to follow me on mikeandheather2010…  and hope that this is sufficient explanation for my absence…

MERRY, MERRY CHRISTMAS TO YOU ALL… AND BLESSINGS FOR 2010…

...she's such a trooper... we bundled her up and took to alaska last summer... and she just went right along with it...

… this is going to be a more personal post than i usually write… no recipe or recommendation… just reflection…

… this weekend my mom and grandma were in town to celebrate my grandmother’s 78th birthday… they’ve come to visit for grandma’s birthday every year since i’ve lived down here… but this year was particularly poignant because we had such a wonderful time and witnessed the peace and power of prayer… after they left, i cried, because i was so proud and so grateful that we had the chance to celebrate a 78th year of grandma…

… isn’t it nice to actually get to sleep in on a Saturday and then enjoy a leisurely brunch…

… well that’s exactly what i did last weekend… and since it was a Halloween Saturday… we thought it appropriate to have PUMPKIN pancakes and caldron coffee… 🙂

…i used the Pumpkin Pancake and Waffle Mix from Trader Joe’s… and my beloved Mickey Mouse Waffle Maker

… i’m just gonna carry on with the pumpkin obsession right through thanksgiving in case you haven’t noticed… but, i’ll be intentionally and intensely throwing in Peppermint, gingerbread, and other yule tide cheer… especially starting at the end of this month with Fa-la-la Fridays (a fitting follow-up to Thank Goodness it’s Fall Fridays, don’t ya think)…

… but for today… Pumpkin Mickey Mouse Waffles…

… i’ll apologize in advance, as this post is going to be a little bias, seeing as i might be a little emotionally attached to this particular treat…

… but, I felt it was my responsibility as a dedicated pumpkin bloggette to let you know that Marie Calendar’s has a DELICIOUSLY intense Pumpkin Cheesecake

… it’s taken me nearly a week to make a dent in this decadence as it is extremely rich… BUT, i applaud Marie for her ability to make something that embodies the ideal pumpkin flavor… it’s so much more than just cheesecake- it’s definitely pumpkin… and so much more than pumpkin pie– it’s definitely cheesecake…

… this concludes my review of the delightful treat pictured above… cheesy story and one more photo after the jump… read at your own risk…
