I am loving that so many of you are looking forward to Fall just as much as I am! But I can’t help but wonder…
Is your excitement due to the fact that Pumpkin flavored coffee will soon be available in coffee shops nationwide?
Thought so. No shame. I’m right there with ya!
Until then, I’ve settled for an equally delicious combination of French Vanilla with a dash of cinnamon and Truvia.
So..Hurricane Irene is about to rear her ugly head straight into my birthday weekend, and what better way to welcome her than with some strong cocktails?
Maybe she’s a light weight and will pass out before she reaches Boston. We can only hope. But, since that doesn’t seem to be the case, let’s get the drinks ready shall well?
