Music Monday: "Favorite song"!

Hello friends, and happy Monday :)  Today I'm posting a "Music Monday: Favorite Song".  Obviously, by the title of my post, you know what the song is called. (Favorite Song) You may or may not have heard this song before, but  I find myself singing the lyrics of the chorus often, "Like a lyric to my favorite song, You stick with me all day long..." and so on.  You get the idea.  It's by TobyMac, from his new album, Eye on it.  Hope you enjoy!

BEWARE:  The lyrics of the song below are SURE to get stuck in your head, by which you can annoy your family singing them all day long :)

I'm Currently...

Right now, I'm currently....

 Listening to...TobyMac's "Me without You".  It's a great song, with great lyrics and it's really peppy :)

 Reading......"The Mother Daughter Book Club" By Heather Vogel Frederick.  There are six books in the series, and they are about a group of girls, growing up in New England, and they are fiction.

Currently watching....."Courageous"! It is one of my favorite movies to watch.  It has some action, but it also has a really great message.

Playing (on the piano)........a Christian Contemporary book, by Francesca Battistelli.  It has all the music from her first album and it is for intermediate levels of piano players.  If you want to check it out click here.

Using for a devotion...... The "Rise Above" Devotion Book by Bethany Hamilton.  It is a wonderful devotion for girls ages 8 and up.

Pumpkin Square Recipe

Hello Friends!  Fall is finally starting to arrive here, and we are enjoying every cool day we get :)  Since it is starting to get cold, we got inspired to bake something pumpkin-ey.  So today, I am going to share the recipe we made, and I'm sure you'll love it! They are called pumpkin squares, and they taste to amazing.  It makes me want to sit, down with cuppa' tea and read a book :)  Anyway, below is the recipe, hope you enjoy!

1 pkg yellow cake mix (reserve 1 cup for topping)
½ cup (one stick) melted butter
1 egg
-Combine the above and press into a 9” x 13” pan, with only the bottom greased

1 can seasoned pumpkin
2 eggs
2/3 cup milk
(you will need to add sugar if you use the un-seasoned pumpkin.  In that case, follow the directions on the can for the amount of spices and sugar, but NOT for the eggs or milk)
-Combine and pour over cake mixture in pan

1 cup reserved cake mix
1 tsp cinnamon
¼ cup (half a stick) butter
¼ cup sugar
-Combine final ingredients and sprinkle over top
-Bake at 350 F for 45-50 min (I usually bake for an hour), or until knife inserted into center comes out clean.

Let cool completely and cut into squares.

As you can see, the bottom layer is a yellow-cake, the middle is a seasoned pumpkin mixture, and it's sprinkled with a crumb topping :)
