The minute we walked through the door of our new house, my mind started to explode with ideas for DIY posts. The possibilites were ENDLESS.

And then, we painted our cabinets and pretty much spent all the DIY mojo we had in about a week and a half.

Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Cheesecake Squares

Theres not a ton about childhood that I remember besides being chubby and having permed bangs in 3rd grade.  And also, these chocolate chip cheesecake things my mom used to make at Thanksgiving.
