Despite receiving some less than stellar news from the doctor yesterday and the Nat’s losing to the Cardinals last night [they were sooo closeee], life is good!
Life is good because… The cool weather has rolled in and slipper socks have made their first appearance!
Life is good because… I had a satisfyingly sweet bedtime treat last night, cocoa cottage cheese + peanut butter puffs + banana chocolate chip VitaTop. It reminded me of a banana split [if only I had some strawberries]!
Life is good because… Surprise wedding gifts continue to appear on our doorstep! Ryan and I are so grateful and thankful to our family and friends who continue to send us wedding gifts. It’s always fun to come home to a package on the doorstep!
Life is good because… Charlie has proven to us that he can stay out of his “room” [aka the kitchen] and roam throughout the apartment while we’re gone without shredding the curtains or having any accidents!
Life is good because… I made a batch of pumpkin pancakes yesterday and they turned out pretty tasty…
But this morning I played around with the ratios of dry to wet ingredients and successfully made a batch of pumpkin pie pancakes! They were light, fluffy, and had a moist center that reminded me of a slice of pie, yum!
Life is good because… Fall flowers are beautiful, look at those colors!
Trader Joe’s always has the best selection of seasonal flowers- daisies, lilies, mums, tulips… Have you seen the pumpkin tree bunches?!
Life is good because… Ryan and I are going apple picking [for the first time *ever*] this afternoon with a couple of friends! A field full of fresh fruit and a house full of freshly baked goods, it’s sure to be a beautiful and tasty adventure!
Life is good because… Tonight Ryan and I are planning to have a homemade date night. Pumpkin pasta + pumpkin peanut butter cups + my two pumpkins = a good night!
Life is good with a lot of pumpkin it in
P.S. Help! I’m interested in purchasing a point-and-shoot camera… I love the convenience of my iPhone and the quality of my DSLR camera but I’d like to have the best of both worlds- a compact, reliable camera that I could toss into my bag when I’m out for an adventure. I’ve been perusing around Amazon.com and have received some suggestions from friends, I’m leaning towards a Panasonic or Sony… Any advice?!
Question: See above!
Question: Where do you grocery shop? Trader Joe’s and Whole Foods are my favorites but I also go to our local grocery store for some general items and make a monthly Costco trip… I’ve been hearing a lot about Wegmans lately and thinking I should make my way out that-a-way soon!
