TWTW - first in October version

Friday afternoon shopping landed me two necklaces, hoop earrings, an infinity scarf and a free blue one, Essie It's Genius and some face stuff. Friday night? Grocery shopping, magazines, nail painting, frozen pizza and vampires - Vampire Diaries and The Originals. MFD was on an overnighter, so it was me and the vamps. 
1 - Ain't nobody got time to put real pants on and go to Starsucks for a $470 pumpkin spice latte that chokes you with sweetness by sip three. I put a cup of 1% milk in a glass measuring cup, added 1 teaspoon of brown sugar, 1 teaspoon of vanilla, 1/2 tbs of canned pumpkin, 1/8 tsp pumpkin pie spice and whisked. I put it in the microwave for a minute and a half until it frothed up. Meanwhile, I brewed a cup of strong coffee. I poured them both into a glass mug simultaneously and let the magic happen. 
2 - Baked apple cider donut holes. They were good, but I prefer the pumpkin poppers I made last year. 
Saturday afternoon was spent puttering around my house, which I haven't had much of a chance to do lately. It was awesome. 

I also went to the Pet Store, booze store, and Target. Then I had drinks with Debbie and Gail at Three Monkeys. Gail went to a wedding, and Debbie and I ordered in and had a drive by visit with Lori. MFD got home from a long trip to Erie, I picked Gail up as her DD, and we had some wine and lounged. And watched that asshole Miley on SNL. However, the Boehner Bachmann skit fucking ruled. 

I woke up at 7 after only five hours of sleep. Even the dogs were tired. 

Sunday projects: 
1. Cream of... soup. I plan to add some mushrooms to it if it's mushroom, etc. 
2. Italian wedding soup - recipe to come tomorrow. 
3. Movie time - Trouble with the Curve - I love baseball movies. And Justin Timberlake. 
4. Movie time - Hello I Must Be Going. It was weird but okay.
5. Movie time - This is 40. Am I behind or what? I didn't know the Flyers were in it. Scott Hartnell, call me.

etc. etc. until bedtime. I just realized you can't really read the type on the photos in this post. Sorry about that. 

We meet again, Monday. Do-si-do.

  1. i'm in orlando now and have not gone to target yet which is total blasphemy because last year before we even checked into the hotel, we made a beeline right for target as soon as we landed! today is target day however and totally looking forward to seeing that red bullseye.

    hope you had a good weekend! just trying to catch up on blog reading as i wait for the kids to wake.

  2. Hoooray for delicious, not super-sweet, homemade PSLs! Can't wait to try, looks like a very easy peasy recipe!

    Glad to see you went with the Dickinson's witch hazel! Did you find the alcohol free version? Love the necklaces, nail polish, and scarves. Despite the humidity, fall is here! Technically! The Elf eyelash curler is the BOMB dot com, best $3 spent.

    Can't wait for Italian Wedding soup! Red cart, happy heart, indeed!

  3. Red cart - happy heart = Target should pay you for that!

    I haven't watched Miley on SNL. I was waiting for the internet to tell me if it was worth my time and so far, the only thing that sounds good is the sketch you mentioned. At least she apparently wasn't a train wreck, though.

  5. "Ain't nobody got time for a $470 PSL"...hahaha. Your weekend looks like line in the sense of equal parts fun, and chill which are the best kinds, I think.

    Had an awesome 2 hrs in our Healing Ocean Oasis yesterday, even when it was raining, due to the closing on Thursday. Another beautiful vacation year with the HOO!
    Wishing everyone a happy, healthy week.
    Love your MOMMA

  8. I didn't watch SNL but I feel like I did since it has benn all over the news. I dislike Miley. Yay for a somewhat relaxing weekend! I took a nap both days so I call that a win!

  9. So those Apple Cider Donut Holes look freaking amazing. I might have to try concocting my own PSL like you did! I bought Pumpkin Pie Spice Creamer but it isn't the same. We watched The Originals yesterday! I was so excited, but then I realized we pretty much have seen the whole episode on VD but I don't care I still love it!

  10. Lately, Targets have been popping up a little all over in Canada but next Oct. 18 I will be getting my very own Target in my city... actually, walking distance from my home!

    Red cart = Happy heart, I will be very soon!

  11. I'm with you. I think the PSL from Starbucks is disgusting.

    What was MFD in Erie for? Did he love it?!?!?! Lol. Not an easy place to love.

    After reading Marla's comment, I may need to check out that eyelash curler. Mine sucks.

  20. That pumpkin spice latte sounds awesome! I use the short cut version. I add pumpkin pie spice to my coffee grounds and it tastes scrumptious!
