Hi friends! I’ve been a little MIA. The last two weeks have been so busy that I didn’t have time to suss out my favorite things, so here we are today! Better late than never.
One: Pumpkin Muffins
If you’re into all things Fall, you must try these muffins. They are so simple to make & super delicious. These pumpkin chocolate chip muffins are incredibly easy to make, & only require four ingredients; they are what I call semi-homemade. It’s the perfect thing to eat for breakfast, a snack, or dessert.
Two: Trader Joe’s Coffee
I am a devout consumer, of Barrie House Kona coffee; however, get thyself to Trader Joe’s & try the pumpkin spice coffee and maple coffee. Both are delicious – the maple smells more like maple than it tastes like maple. The pumpkin spice is heavy on the spice for me, it has a rather strong cinnamon taste & took me a couple cups to really like it. It is not at all fake tasting like other PSLs.
Three: Entryway Revamp
My friend Maureen recently moved to Park City, & she gave me a few pieces of furniture including a really nice wine cabinet. So, I replaced my tiny little entry table, that I bought in college from Bed Bath & Beyond, with my new wine cabinet! Of course, I totally forgot to take before pictures.
Four: Emily in Paris
Okay, so I know a lot of people are criticizing Emily in Paris, but they are wrong. Ha! If you want to watch a fun little romp, then Emily in Paris is for you.
Is is cheesy? Yes, but I also love Hallmark movies. Much of the criticism is that there is no way Emily could afford her Paris lifestyle, but you could easily say the same for most tv shows – FRIENDS, Sex & the City, etc. If you like Younger, then you will like Emily. It’s 10 episodes, about 25 minutes each. I watched it in one sitting.
Now, if you want to watch something French, with subtitles, beautiful scenery, & a really great love story – watch Amelie. I saw this move countless times in high school; it is still one of my all time favorite movies.
Tuesday was the first day of early voting in Texas, & I happily waited an hour in line to cast my vote. Texas has often been called a non-voting state, not red nor blue. It was great to see so many people out and doing their civic duty. Please make your own plan to vote!
I hope you all had a great weekend! I just got done with a Zoom baby shower. Aww! Now I’m off to check on my chili in the crockpot.
Until next time…
