go go muffins, a very unhappy puppy

I love taking naps. One plus side to being unemployed is being able to take afternoon naps, which is what I did today. I fell asleep to the thought of making a muffin I could wake up to. As much as I dreamed, the only thing was, I had to make the muffins when I woke up. What resulted was my own muffin creation that had carrots, unsweetened coconut, pineapple/pineapple juice, walnuts, pecans, cinnamon, nutmeg, maple syrup, brown sugar, natural sugar, canola oil, unbleached all purpose flour, baking powder, baking soda, sea salt and vanilla extract. The whole time I was making these, I had Wham's Wake Me Up Before You Go Go stuck in my head (look, I grew up in the 80's!). So, I'm calling these
Go Go Muffins.

Also, since tomorrow is Halloween I found this picture of our dog, Sweetpea, dressed up as a pirate to share. We aren't into dressing up our pets but we love pirates and this was Sweetpea's first Halloween. This picture was taken when she was a puppy three years ago and since she looked so miserable, this was the first and last time she was made to wear an outfit. ARR, Happy Halloween!

Your muffins look delicious! And, your pup is so cute! My sis LOVES to dress up her Boston Terrior; he actually doesn't seem to mind it, but he does indeed give her a pitiful look sometimes! LOL

we are big fans of naps around here, despite having jobs.

it's funny because we always make mention of the fact that the DAY i went into labor...i came home and was really tired (which is really rare for my ocd ass!) anyway, we came home and john went back to work and i was exhausted. so i ate a sammie, went to sleep, woke back up when he came home and that's kind-of how the day went...woke up for "food" and went back to sleep. i'm a "meal" person, so it was weird for me to wake up for little meals.
anyway, halloween is special for us because as a preggie lady, we finally realize i was craving things, etc.
gah....my post is too long!
i hope y'all had a happy halloween!

The expression on sweetpea's face is too much! Those muffins look great, too.

During my last semester at uni I took a LOT of naps. I often felt yucky afterwards, like a hangover--headache, groggy, etc. Then I discovered the cure: another nap! Happy napping, Lori!
