I'm "Fall"ing for Fall!

I admit I'm a bit jealous of all the fall decorating going on in all your houses. I really want to start decorating my house but I'm going to wait until after my daughters sweet 16th birthday party at the end of this month, because it would be silly to decorate and then "un"decorate a week later!
But I have to say that I have been getting into the "Fall" mood with my taste buds.
The other day while on an outing with my friend Kathy we decided that a coffee stop was in order. Lo' and behold right in front of our eyes was a Starbucks! (You'd of thought we planned that!) I guess everyone else and their brother decided to go at the same time because we had to park waaaaaay far away and walk forever to get there.
Do you see how far we had to walk? Geesh, what a girl won't do for her coffee.

As I perused the menu I saw that they had a "NEW" Pumpkin Spice Latte'( that I got iced because it is still in the 90's here)! And upon further inspection I saw that they also had pumpkin bread! I would say that that is just about the perfect combination, wouldn't you?

Doesn't this just look YUMMY?!It was as good as it looks, trust me!

Unfortunately for the people around us, the DOUBLE espresso started to kick in really quick and Kathy and I started to get a little goofy. I know I know, you don't believe it, but it's true.
We have a tendency to go into our little "friendship" bubble but seem to forget that it's very transparent and everyone around us can see and hear what we are doing.But that doesn't seem to stop us. Uh uh! But on this day an incident happened that caused us both to lose it. We tried our best to keep the hysterical laughter quiet but I was about to explode with laughter and finally told Kathy that we needed to go.
Upon getting up, the lady behind Kathy turned around and said, "I gotta know. I gotta know what you all were laughing about?" And I just told her that it was a visual and it can't be repeated! LOL! We hid our heads and walked quickly out the door.
I'm ending that story there to save time.

Then the other day I got this new tea from Publix just because it had fall yumminess written all over it!
And I couldn't decide which side of my cute, perfectly matching Garfield cup to take a picture of so I took both sides of it and now I'm posting them both even though you really could care less about my cup! Phew!

The tea was quite good too. You can taste the spices and everything in it. As I was drinking it I thought how good it would taste with a little Pumpkin Spice creamer in it. I'm sure that's coming out soon. What's a little artificial creamer that has absolutely nothing good for you in it, every once and awhile?
Have you stuck with me or did you do a quick skim and just look at pictures? Uh huh. I know what some of you do! You can't fool me! LOL! But I love you anyway.



  1. Oh Here is a new definition
    LSHISO =laughed so hard I snorted oops!
    Love this post because I can soo just see you guys in the starbucks being super silly and laughing so hard :)
    None of those are very big and when me and my friends go in we'rs always trying to be quiet but it never works but can't say we have ever taken pics and had THIS much fun ;)

    Love you guys!

  2. Fall is my favorite!!! You don't get to see the leaves change do you? Such a bummer because it's SO beautiful!!!!

    That coffee cake looked delish!

  3. Thanks for sharing a slice of your life! Glad to know there are other goofy gals on this planet who get lost in their own "friendship bubble"! :-)

    I'm totally going to look for that autumn tea...sounds scrumptious!

  4. So you like pumpkin spice flavored things?


  5. LOLOL - oh my, it all just came rushing back to me...um, how come you posted a "cute/goofy" pic of you and a "dorky/goofy" pic of me? Huh? huh? LOL - kidding. :)
    Thank you for not sharing the whole story though, LOLOL. :)
    That tea sounds yummalicious, and I CARE about both sides of your cup.

  6. Oh you two are making me laugh! Of course I want to know the rest of the story now - did somebody snort latte through their nose or what?

    Looks like you had lots of fun and lots of yumminess!! And I like that tea too!

    Good idea on holding off on the decorating! Can't wait to see what you do for your daughter's bday!

    Big I'll-have-pumpkin-this-and-pumpkin-that-as-long-as-the-pumpkin-doesn't-make-me-fat hugs to you!! (I was referring to myself there - LOL!) :) Have a fantabulous day my friend!

  7. Girl pumpkin flavored stuff is so what my Wordless Wednesday is about. OMGosh I love Fall! Love those pictures. YOu two are hilarious! Their pumpkin loaf is heaven on earth:)

  8. I didn't even realize that was Kathy at first. How much fun you two must have together!

    Don'tcha just love hanging out and laughing with friends? Oh and the Starbucks walk of shame? A long one, but it was worth it wasn't it? Nummy!

  9. Yummmmm! I love Pumpkin Spice "coffee" of any sort. Can't wait for the creamer to come out this year. I need to remember to stock up for those months when we don't have it. Glad you had a great, goofy time! :)

  10. I love all the pumpkin spice stuff coming out lately. I did have a Pumpkin Spice Frappachino at Starbucks minus the coffee so it was more just creamed based and it tasted exactly like Pumpkin Pie from a straw!

    Love and Hugs ~ Kat

  11. That looks really yummy!

    And, I'll admit it...in a pinch, I will skim and not read a whole post. But, you said you would still love me, right?

  12. Oh Kimmy,

    I love their pumpkin spice latte and bread!!! Loved the pics....you two are too cute!

    Love ya! (and yes, I have a sore throat and feel like I'm trying to catch something...I'm trying to refuse it in the name of Jesus too...pray for me)

  13. Mmmm...pumpkin. I made beer bread last night with a Pumpkin Stout. TASTE-EEE!

  14. Ooooo...pumpkin spiiiiiiiiiiiiice....


  15. You are so adorable! I've been known to go out of my way for a PUmpkin Spice Latte. Wowzer, YUM! And to do so with a friend, that's just whipped cream on the top! :D

  16. I can't think of a better way to start a season than with coffee :)

  17. Yum! I love pumpkin flavored things; however, I do not like pumpkin pie. I'm odd, I know. ;)

    Too cute pics!!

  18. Kim Publix also has coffee creamer in pumpkin spice. Love it. It just doesn't feel like fall yet here in Florida. You and Kathy ar just to funny.

  19. I can see and hear you and Kathy now...I'm laughing at just the thought of it. I can't image what I would have done if I had been there.

    Ok, enough about the fall decorations...I've got lots of work to do today and I don't have time to go in the attic and get mine down. I have to wait until tomorrow...but you are making me want to go NOW!!! It feels more like fall in Arkansas since it has rained every day for the past 2 weeks. We are floating here!

    I'm outta here..got to get busy.

    Love you and miss you!
