Pumpkin Gooey Butter Cake

'Tis the season for pumpkin EVERYTHING! 
Hey people, it only comes around once a year
so you must enjoy it while you can.

If you are from St. Louis, you may be familiar
with one of our favorite indulgences, 
Gooey Butter Cake. It's one of those St. Louis
staples. If you are NOT from St. Louis, dare we say,
your tastebuds are missing out.

We decided to put a fall spin on this
classic dessert by adding, you guessed it,

It's very easy to make, and you will
not be sorry you did it!

You will need:


1 (18 1/4-ounce) package yellow cake mix
1 egg
8 tablespoons butter, melted


1 (8-ounce) package cream cheese, softened
1 (15-ounce) can pumpkin
3 eggs
1 teaspoon vanilla
8 tablespoons butter, melted
1 (16-ounce) box powdered sugar
1 teaspoon cinnamon
1 teaspoon nutmeg

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.

Combine the cake mix, egg, and butter and mix 
well with an electric mixer. Pat the mixture into the
 bottom of a lightly greased 13 by 9-inch baking pan.

To make the filling:

 In a large bowl, beat the cream cheese and pumpkin until smooth. 
Add the eggs, vanilla, and butter, and beat together. 
Next, add the powdered sugar, cinnamon, nutmeg, and mix well.
 Spread pumpkin mixture over cake batter and bake for 40 to 50 minutes.
 Make sure not to over-bake, apply the toothpick
rule, as the center should be a little gooey.
Once removed from oven, let cool for about 
45-an hour before serving. And of course
as most amazing desserts are, it is even better
served with ice cream or whipped cream.

Tunesday; Jamestown Revival

We are pretty pumped one of our
favorite Ramblin' bands, Jamestown Revival
is rolling through St. Louis this
evening at The Old Rock House.

We were first introduced to this band a
few years ago at Bonnaroo, and were
immediately drawn to their sound.

Dusty Rose

Other than being the (adorable) name of
Adam and Behatis new baby girl. Dusty Rose has 
become one of our absolute favorite colors when it
comes to our wardrobe. It's probably the closest
thing we will be to adding color to our closet.
From shoes, to sunglasses, to coats, this
color looks good in almost anything.

Tunesday; VERITE

We absolutely love VERITE's pop'y cover of
The 1975's "Somebody Else".  

It's been one of our favorite tunes
for the last couple of months, and we
have heard several different artists covering
the song, but this is by far one of our favorites.
It has a sort of "Anthem"-esque feel to it.

Check it out now on Spotify!

Happy Tunesday!

Show Me Route 66

Traveling is one of the true loves in our lives. 
We thrive on adventure, meeting new people
 and having our eyes opened to new experiences and cultures.

 We are proud that the world-famous Route 66 highway
 is not only historical to America, but in St. Louis as well. 
This dream route is celebrating its 90th year of 
adventures and though the "original" route is not intact,
 Route 66 can still be traveled by a few historical routes
 that have been modified over time.

We can only imagine how beautiful traveling the 
route would have been at its peak to see all the 
sites and architectures at the time!

Oh how far licence plates how come
in their design over the years! It's crazy to think
how basic they use to be.
We really go a kick out of the old cars on display
at the exhbit. It's hard to imagine people actually felt 
SAFE in these things!

 We were like bugs to a light with all the
amazing neon signs the exhibit had on display.
It was the first sight we saw when we walked in
and I think it is safe to say it is where we spent a majority
of our exploration. How could you not?!
We wanted every vintage neon sign for our home.
We asked if we could keep one, but we were quickly
turned down.

 Hands down one of the MOST amazing pieces
in the exhibit is the original Chase Park Plaza neon sign,
beautifully refurbished by the museum. It was spectacular!
We can't even begin to imagine how magnificent it was 
in it's prime. Pictures don't do this one justice,
you definitely have to see it for yourself!

The Missouri History Museum is celebrating Route 66's 
birthday until next July with its interactive and free, 
6,000 foot exhibit that guide visitors through
 St. Louis's most popular stops throughout the route's
 history, many of which are still around today. Without 
giving too much away- we loved all of the buzzing
 neon signs, the AIRSTREAM TRAILER and
 the diner-themed area complete with jukebox, 
original uniforms and listening station.

We were also surprised to learn that some of
 our favorite spots now have been a favorite to visitors and 
St. Louisans for decades
 (see if you can catch those fave spots in the images above).
