Colorado Road Trip + {Wild and Lovely Link Up}



My friend Jess and I decided to spontaneously take a road trip a few weeks ago, it's something i have always wanted to do and now can finally cross off my bucket list! We seriously had the best time ever! I started in CA and drove over to AZ to pick her up, than we headed straight for Colorado, our first stop was in Colorado Springs, we only stayed for one night and did a little exploring the next day at Garden of the God's. Than we headed over to Paonia and Aspen to visit some old college friends of mine, we were only suppose to stay there about 2 nights but had so much fun we ended up staying for almost a week! We made so many great memories while we were there, I am already itching to go back ! On another note tomorrow is Halloween and I have absolutely no costume planned for me or kyler , so i am off to try and figure something out! P.s. don't forget to link up below so I can see what you have all been up to !

Bread: 3/4 cup canola oil
2 eggs
1 Tbsp vanilla
1 cup pumpkin puree
1 cup flour
1 cup sugar
1 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp salt

 Streusel topping:
1/2 cup flour
1/2 cup packed brown sugar
1/2 tsp cinnamon
4 Tbsp cold butter, cut into small cubes

Instructions Preheat oven to 350 degrees Grease Loaf pan (I used a 9x5 loaf pan). In a large bowl, mix oil, eggs, vanilla and pumpkin. Add 1 cup of flour, sugar, baking soda, salt and 1/2 tsp of cinnamon and mix until just combined. Pour batter into loaf pan.

For the streusel topping: In a separate small bowl, combine remaining 1/2 cup flour, 1/2 tsp cinnamon, brown sugar and butter and mix with pastry cutter until coarse crumbs form. Sprinkle topping evenly over batter. Bake 50-60 minutes or until toothpick inserted into center of bread comes out clean.
