I cannot believe that summer is over and fall is upon us! My neighborhood Caribou coffee was threatening the arrival of pumpkin drinks back in the 2nd week of August! I have a serious love for pumpkin but I believe there is an appropriate time (see past posts about APCT – “appropriate pumpkin consumption time”). So last night I was out enjoying Shirlington’s Girls Night Out where all the shops and restaurants and such have specials and samples and all that good stuff. Caribou had samples of their light roast pumpkin coffee and I have to say, I quite enjoyed it! I also saw pumpkin scones at Starbucks this morning which I had to fight myself so hard to not buy! My mind went through all the scenarios by which I could justify it: If you get this you can’t eat till lunch – no snacks. If you get this you have to have a salad for dinner and self-loathing for dessert. It was rough. I ended up leaving without one. Score for willpower!
I have also been busy with some fun wedding crafts for a good friend’s wedding that was a couple weeks ago. Stella & Dot is keeping me super busy as I try to grow my business in the busiest shopping time of the year. I am loving it! This month I am participating in an online virtual vendor show to raise money to help support a boy fighting brain cancer and his family as they face mounting medical bills. http://www.stelladot.com/ts/0tns5
I have been trying out a lot of great recipes in the last month and will post a few soon! Also about to start ramping up my running as some fall races are quickly approaching!
That’s all the good stuff for now! Expect more posts this weekend!
