Pumpkin Pie Donut Hole Recipe

If this isn’t the perfect marriage of two amazingly delicious foods, then I don’t know what is. I mean, how could it get much better than donuts and pumpkin pie? Could there be a better fall breakfast? I think not. I love having donuts with coffee in the morning. Of course, I don’t eat them every morning, but on the weekends it’s a nice treat.

This is Halloween

I’m not a huge Halloween fan. I don’t like all the spooky and gory stuff that goes with it. However, I do love the candy and cute little kid costumes. I have kids, so I can’t very well ignore Halloween. My kids, like all kids, love candy and love dressing up. Since Halloween comes around just one day out of the year, I can put up with the stuff I don’t like to make my kids happy.

One Lucky Lady Fills Her Big Horn Sheep Tag

For the past seven years my husband has paid to put me in the drawing for a big horn sheep tag. The first year he put me in for the drawing, he thought I was a shoe-in. I should have been, because way back then the difference between the number of applicants and the number of tags given out was less than five. He was sure I would draw it, but sadly I didn’t.

Hunter Gets More Than He Bargained for and Has Close Encounter with a Black Bear

My husband is an avid hunter, so he has had a few close encounters with wildlife in his day. However, he has never had an encounter quite as close as this hunter had. This hunter was enjoying a nice afternoon in a tree stand waiting for his prey to come along, when he was visited by an almost too friendly black bear.

Pumpkin Pie Protein Smoothie Recipe

This past January, I made resolutions to get into better shape and to eat healthier. It was slow going at first, but I have been doing a pretty good job sticking to my resolutions this year. I have spent the last nine months running a few days a week and just trying to substitute some unhealthier food for healthier foods. I have learned a lot about eating healthier, and what and when to eat after a workout.

Not Your Ordinary DUI

This seems like something that would happen in Montana. I’m sure it probably has. Recently, a Colorado man lost his driver’s license so he decided to ride his horse to his brother’s wedding in Utah, 600 miles away. Since it’s not like he could just take the chance and drive his car without his license. No, the only option he had was to ride his horse across two states.

Yeah! Pumpkin Beer is Here!

There is a rumor going around that fall flavored beer is already out on store shelves. Apparently some beer drinkers are upset because they think that summer isn’t over yet. These beer lovers don’t want to even see a fall flavored beer until the leaves start to fall. However, I love fall, and would be thrilled to have pumpkin spice beer in the middle of July if I could get it.

Reasons to Visit Missoula this Fall and Winter

Just because the weather gets a little colder soon, doesn’t mean that Missoula and Western Montana close the blinds and hibernate for the winter. In fact, the opposite is true. There is just as much to enjoy about our fair city when the snow flies, as when the sun shines 20 hours a day
