There are so many things I'm thankful for and one of those is the amount of nature areas Washington state has to offer. I'm so thankful we were able to get out and walk Nisqually Wildlife Perserve before the "Stay Home, stay healthy" order the Gov. placed. It was wonderful to get out one last time, this staying home is tough and I don't know how we're going to manage?!! #pnw #nature #optoutside #stayhome #momlife #sendwine

🌴On Saturday we took advantage of the sunshine and finally got out of the house! This will be a rough and trying time for our mental health, not going to lie. But we got to play at the local beach while practicing #socialdistancing it was wonderful! 🌻And we found a beautiful painted rock, thank you to who ever hid it!

What are you going to do with your child if homeschooling isn't cut out for them or your family? Take a deep breath, exhale and relax. It'll be okay! Everyone's health and wellness is much more important at this time than academics. I've got a list of activities if you'd like some structure in your lives though. Check it out on my blog.

Glad we were able to squeeze in one more trip out into the community and zoo before things start shutting down. Friday Piper and I made an impromptu visit to Pt defiance zoo! It was great minus the cold/rain; there was only a couple other people, animals were active, didnt need to touch anything. Now schools are out for 6 weeks and we plan on quarantining ourselves at home for most of that time, except to get out into nature.

On February 3 I started My Peak Challenge and happy to say I'm still going strong! I've been needing to make some lifestyle changes and get more active. I've been working to control what I eat, getting some kind of exercise  in daily which I'm really enjoying. I didn't think I'd ever say that! 💚 #MPC2020 has truly started changing my life, I've had more positive thoughts and my body feels good. @mypeakchallenge

Just an IDEA!! With the coronavirus and people stocking their homes with TP, disinfecting wipes, tissues, hand santizer.... Think about buying an extra wipe container, hand santizer and/or tissue box and donate it to your child's teacher. I'm 100% positive they wouldnt turn it down! Keep in mind I'm sure the school is supplying them with some stuff but a lot of times teachers spend money out of their own pockets for classroom stuff. Remember your child is spending a good portion of their time at school right now, not just at home.

Delicious Pumpkin Choctaw Fault Cake

Sharing is caring!

We can’t go through Fall/Autumn without some yummy seasonal foods, who doesn’t love pumpkin flavored everything! (Okay some people but I can assure you they’ll love this recipe!) This cake is delicious, it’s got the pumpkin bread flavor but also taste like chocolate cake. It’s moist and sweet. My mouth is drooling just writing this. Make it for your family or bring this cake to a party, it will be a hit.

Preheat oven to 350° and grease a 9×13 inch pan. In a medium bowl with a mixer; pour in your eggs, pumpkin, oil and vanilla. Mix for about 2 minutes. Isn’t it a beautiful orange color?

Mix in your sugar, salt, cocoa powder, baking soda, cinnamon, and flour for another 2 minutes. After it’s all stirred, pour the batter into the pan.

Place cake pan in a preheated oven for about 35 minutes, or until an inserted toothpick comes out clean. Let cool completely before frosting.

While your cake is cooling, make the frosting. In a medium bowl with a mixer; mix powdered sugar, cocoa powder, cream cheese, vanilla, milk and butter. Mix for 2 minutes. After the cake is completely cooled, spread the frosting over the cake evenly.

Let me know if the comments below if you decide to make this cake and how you like it? I hope you enjoy it as much as my family does. ENJOY!

This Pumpkin Choctaw Cake is so delicious and easy to make. A mix of pumpkin bread and chocolate cake!
