Just a few things

It's fall. I mentioned this I think... pumpkin pie spice flavored stuff is starting to come out. I stopped at Target yesterday to pick up some toilet paper. While there I checked their flavored coffee's (nope no luck), as I walked out I passed their in store starbucks. Wouldn't you know the pumpkin spice latte is back... ummmm I walked past, then I walked back, then I started to walk away again, then I walked back and ordered myself the smallest size they sell.
Mine of course was in a little paper cup, but this picture gives you the 'yum' factor a lot better then a picture of a paper cup would. It was good, but, believe it or not, a little too sweet! What the heck happened to me ... used to be I would gulp down the largest one they had and be happy as a clam. Now I drink half a small and have to stop because of the sweet factor? Not to mention that the entire time I was drinking it I was thinking... this tiny cup is supposed to be 12 oz but it feels closer to 8 and it's 240 calories!!

I ended up finishing it though, the cup kept the second half of it warm until two hours later when I sipped it again and thought, hmm still good - and finished it.

And speaking of pumpkin flavored things. How about this?
Lady D made me do it. She told me they have a Sam Adams pumpkin beer down in AZ and that it's really good. I'm not much of a beer drinker but I thought it might be fun to try something new so I went to the grocery store to look. No Sam Adams, but they did have this stuff. It's locally brewed, and tastes pretty good. Thanks D.
