Chillaxin' and pumpkin explosion
We had a somewhat relaxed weekend. Well, Saturday was really relaxed, we didn't get out much which kind of stunk but oh well. We didn't need to be running all over the place. But I was running all over the kitchen trying to get our lunch together and it was exhausting trying to time it all to come out right, I was hot and sweaty and in a bad mood so I didn't really enjoy my last Orange Cream Soda from North Woods like I wanted to. So now I have to either make an all day trip back to Traverse City or hope they read this and want to send me some. I don't foresee either happening. Sigh.
We watched football pretty much all day...yay? But I suppose from here on out are considered the "real" games. I don't think many teams are having a great year so it's going to be a frustrating year to be a fan if you're like the Mr. Me? I could DVR it and fast forward without an issue.
Sunday was grocery day. It was official, pumpkin everything has exploded onto every scene.
Trader Joe's had some of our favorite things we wait all year for including pumpkin pie spice (the best I've tasted), fig butter (perfect for my sweet figgy potatoes!) and we grabbed 3 jugs of spiced cider.
Just when you settle in for cider, they like to yank it on you so if you don't buy enough for the season, you're gonna be S.O.L. It's good until 2016 if you don't open it so technically I could fill the basement with it and be in spice cider bliss for the next 2 years.
Then it was on to Target. Every time I pass this big ol' picture, I squeal in a way that would make squirrels heads explode. I cannot help myself.
I tried on a few long sleeved items and this is the one I came home with.
Note to self, wear Spanx.
The Mr picked up this pumpkin spice gum.
It tasted like pumpkin spice but also tasted like something you'd want to swallow right away and not exactly a kick of flavor, pretty subtle.
We saw this and had to pick some up since we knew it wouldn't be around long.
Oh my Lord it was amazing! We used it for apple dip with our lunch. I know its not "all natural" and all that crap but it's not like it's going to be our normal peanut butter.
Then it was time to walk in the crunchy Fall leaves on the crooked brick lined streets to give our hips a workout.
We needed a weekend to veg out and I'm thankful we got it before things get busy again.
How did you spend your weekend?
