Umm it’s half way through September? How did this happen! I must say the weather has been quite nice in Austin, TX recently. Fall is my absolute fav, fav, fav time of year. So this has put me in an extra good mood! I’ve even put up a few Halloween decorations! Growing up, I always loved the holiday season but the past few years I’ve been a little meh about it all. This year though, I’m feeling more invigorated and excited. I think it’s because of my new apartment digs. There’s something really nice about having your own space. Even though I had great roommates in the past, I’ve been soaking up every second of my time living alone. It’s something I have always wanted to do, living alone that is. There hasn’t really been a day where I’ve felt lonely. That is probably because between my dog, job, events, travel and keeping up with this little blog there is hardly time to just chill out. And I am totally ok with that! I think the busier I am, the better I am for the most part. When my plate is full I am better about keeping up with all the little tasks than when I have extra time. Those are the times when I feel like I have forever to get something done so I just convince myself its ok to put it off a little longer. Not the case!
Yummm drippy honey, fresh strawberries and a vanilla cake mix. Yes! Cake mix y’all. With my crazy routine I’ve been trying to squeeze in healthier meals and keep the balance. It’s important, yo. But these little desserts came late one night when the sweets craving just wouldn’t take a hike. I whipped up a little cake mix and cut these with biscuit cutters. No frosting was in the house and a trip to the store just wasn’t going to happen, so honey and fruit it was! I must say, necessity really is the mother of invention! Ok, ok, ok maybe that is taking it a little too far… I guess I didn’t technically invent these stack cakes but whatever. That is neither here nor there. If you’re having a late night sweets craving, these will most certainly do the trick!
