Bisquick Pumpkin Pancakes (Vegan)

Bisquick Vegan Pumpkin Pancakes

You know, I was saving this for October, but pumpkin fever seems to hit earlier and earlier every year. The moment Starbucks releases the Pumpkin Spice Latte, all bets are off! I read this morning on The Morning Fresh that the PSL doesn’t even have any pumpkin in it… which is just something I never really thought about. I feel duped.

I Bought My First House!

Our First House

I mentioned in my Living Room Color Scheme post that I just recently purchased my first home. Wooo! Xavier and I opened a savings account together (that’s trust) and scheduled monthly transfers from each of our checking accounts into our joint account for about a year and a half, and just two weeks before our two year Denver anniversary, we closed on our new house. Having a 30 year mortgage isn’t ponies and rainbows, but it’s sure nice to be putting money towards my home each month instead of giving it away to a landlord.
