Wishing You...

A fabulous fall! Yesterday, we went on about how this is our favorite season. And, since it's our favorite, we decided to make it this week's theme. So, for today's quick project, we decided to show off our fall card for this year:
We decided that this little birdie was too cute not to use! The inside of the card says "Wishing You a Fabulous Fall" (hence the title of the post)

And what's fall without something pumpkin-flavored?! Since we're just two girls on budgets, we can't really afford to get fancy coffee drinks everyday. While we were perusing Pinterest, we came across this recipe for pumpkin lattes, so you can have them whenever you want! I love how easy it is to remember, and it takes less than five minutes to make one! I only use coffee when I make these, but if you're fortunate enough  to have an espresso machine, you can surely use that. (And how cute is that mug?! We designed them with just some Sharpies (another Pinterest project ;)

Pumpkin Spice Latte
Makes: 2 large mugs
2 cups milk
2 tablespoons sugar
2 tablespoons pumpkin pie filling
2 tablespoons imitation vanilla extract
Pumpking pie spice*
1 cup of strong coffee, prepared
Whipped cream, for topping
Caramel drizzle
1.       In a small saucepan, add milk, pumpkin, and sugar. Heat on medium heat until steaming. Stir occasionally.
2.       Remove from heat and stir in vanilla and pumpkin pie spice.(*I usually use just enough to cover the top of the milk)
3.       Pour mixture into blender. Blend for 30 seconds, until nice and fluffy.
4.       Divide coffee and milk between two cups. Top with whipped cream and caramel, if desired 
 This recipe is obviously pretty easy to cut in half, in case you only want to make one. Or make eough for two and drink them both...
Phew, that was a long one! I think it's time for me to go make one of these! Thanks for stopping by!
