Pumpkin Piesicles // take a megabite

So, do any of you guys tend to do the good old pants dance where you tug your pants up by the belt loops? I guess I yanked the hell out of my red corduroys because I ripped them like whoa. And so I FINALLY decided to fix that tear and while I was cutting the hot pink (I couldn’t find red) thread I snipped a hole in the leg of those same red pants. I Steve Urkel-ed them and I think it’s a sign. Retired these tattered weirdos and buy some new ones, I mean, what I trying to prove here, ya know?

Luckily, I Steffan Urkel-ed these piesicles. I made pumpkin pie into it’s hottie un-nerdy self. No judgement, pie. What I’m trying to say is that I didn’t mess these up or spill them (that much) or anything! So boo yah, and boom shaka laka, and yay!

So if you love pumpkin pie, you’ll  love these pops! If you aren’t that into pumpkin pie, don’t bother because these taste EXACTLY like it. Top a pop with whipped cream and pass it to your weird uncle on Thanksgiving because these popsicles are piesicles.

P.S. Sorry about all the Family Matters references up in here.

P.P.S. Hope your weekend involves everything delicious, all the best sleep, and all the best dogs.

Sometimes I want pumpkin pie satisfaction without making a crust. Pumpkin piesicles=problem solved. Thanks for making it socially acceptable to basically eat pumpkin pie fill on its own <3
