Most of the time I post healthy stuff here at JHE but today it is all about the “joyful” side of things. (in case you don’t get that, that’s my way of saying, don’t hasn’t me for this not being hastle.. mmmkay)

After all today is a celebration so I gotta bring the sugar and all things Joyful! There are lots of things to celebrate today! First off, it’s Saturday! Woot woot!  And then it’s a sweet friend of mine’s baby shower, well Virtual Baby Shower – because all the attendees live in different states so we throw our own online party cuz we’re cool like that. My friend Meg  blogs over at With Salt & Wit and she is having a baby boy!

I couldn’t be more thrilled for her. Being a boy mom rocks, you get to act out that inner tomboy! Play superheros, rough house, get all dirty in the mud, teach them how to be courageous and brave.

Yes, there are times it has stretched me, but it’s for the good. Like after church one Sunday, we were out to eat with friends and when we were about to leave Cason started to run around and tackle a friend in the mud …. while in his church clothes.  He was completely covered from head to toe, not a spot was dry. (hand to forehead) But you know what, that’s what washing machines are for, it’s okay!

I think the biggest thing I’ve learned about being a boy mom is to let go and to let him enjoy himself. Boys are NOT like girls, we need to let them be boys. Out of control, full of energy, loads of imagination, dirty, and brave!

I cannot wait to hear the stories that Meg has of her little guy! Even in the beginning when she’s changing diapers and get’s sprayed with ahem… you know what. Oh, it will happen!!! It’s part of the initiation process of being a parent! I was sprayed during newborn photos, perfect timing!! haha

Today as we celebrate Meg and the coming arrival of her precious boy I pray for strength for both Meg and her husband. That they would have an extra measure of patience as they figure out what life looks like as a family of three instead of two, and that they would give each other grace during that season. No one is at their “best” when they are sleep deprived, hungry, and hormonal! But most of all I pray that they would soak up every memory and blessing and store it in their hearts, that little boy is one lucky man to have such loving parents!

I hope you feel blessed today Meg, and cannot wait to give you a big hug next month! (oh.. and get some Oklahoma Joes BBQ!)

Ok, so we’re at a shower, enough of the emotional stuff… let’s get to the food!

Today I thought I’d bring a classic recipe! (or at least a classic in our family!) This Pumpkin Spice Latte Coffee Cake will be gone in minutes! I guarantee it! I’ve never had anyone tell me they don’t like it, in fact most of the time they are asking for the recipe!

I got the Basic Coffee Cake recipe from my mother in law and honestly, I don’t really change a lot. You can’t mess with a good thing, ya know!

Since it’s fall I added some Pumpkin Puree to this recipe along with a some Pumpkin Pie seasoning and then a little bit of espresso to turn this baby into more of a Pumpkin Spice Latte version! Cuz, who doesn’t like Pumpkin Spice Latte’s! I mean really, that’s all you see around this time of year. Starbucks definitely banked on that recipe!

Now, normally I make this recipe in a 13×9 glass pan but since it’s a party I went all fancy on ya and made it in a springform cake pan! I gave you instructions on both versions in the recipe below! (cuz I’m nice like that)

Just a warning, you may end up fighting over the crumb topping, it is down right addicting! For realz!

If you’re looking for a fun recipe to make this fall this is it! It is hands down a family staple in our house during this time of year!! Now, if I could just learn to have self control and eat one piece instead of two that would be great! 🙂 Bon Appetite my friends!
