I’m tellin’ you guys – I get an A+ for productivity today! I have been non-stop since 7am this morning and I don’t know what I’m more excited about: the fact that I’ve gotten so much accomplished, or that I’ve actually had the energy to accomplish it all.
**On a quick side note…
For those of you who have been waiting very patiently for my Pumpkin Spice Cupcakes recipe…you can wait no longer!! I had to keep holding out on you guys because my recipe is actually featured as a guest post over on Carrots ‘N’ Cake today! Tina was kind enough to contact me last week to see if I’d be interested, so of course I said YES! Make sure you go check it out: http://carrotsncake.com/2010/09/guest-post-pumpkin-spice-cupcakes.html Thanks again, Tina!
Rather than stopping for a full, sit-down breakfast, I pretty much ate on the go this morning.
A pineapple flavored Chobani with 1/2 a sliced banana. Oh my god, why do I not get this flavor more often?? It’s amazing!
I also had at least 3-4 handfuls of Quaker Oatmeal Squares throughout the morning. You know how it is…leave the box open on the counter, grab a few every time you walk by.
Ahhh, “A Clean House is a Happy House!”
So even though I have plenty left to do, I’m pretty happy with I have behind me. So far, I’ve:
- Dusted (blech!)
- Swept the kitchen floor
- Mopped the kitchen floor
- Washed a sink full of dishes
- Cleaned the stove top
- Cleared all the
junkstuff off the kitchen table (aka, our “catch-all” spot in the house)
- Started decorating for FALL!!!…
Yes; a trip earlier to Wal-Mart to pick up a $4.00 photo order turned into a little fall decorating trip. Obsessed with fall much? Yes.
I bought these pumpkin & leave fillers for $6.00…totally worth it since I already had the bowl.
And this charger was only $3.00! I already had the candle holder/wax melter, and I used the remaining decorations that wouldn’t fit in the bowl above.
Yummmm! Old & New – I adore Yankee Candle
Pumpkins! Found these at the Christmas Tree Shop for $2.99 each last week. I was sold!
Pretty fall placemats – I got these last year from one of my bridal showers. I think they’re just so cute!
So I had to make sure to use ‘em for lunch.
I told you I’d find a way to use my leftover fajita veggies! Mixed with a spring mix base and a little corn off the cob. So good, it didn’t even need dressing.
And the last of my whole wheat bread from The Fresh Market. Looks like it’s time to go get some more.
But until then, it’s time to get back to some housework and schoolwork…and maybe try to dig out the rest of my fall decorations from storage. Ahhhh, how I LOVE FALL! Hope you’re all having a great day!!
Question for the Afternoon:
Do you have a favorite scented candle?
