Pumpkin Spice is Oh-So-Nice

In a less-than-intelligent move, I took Sadie on a 5-mile run at 11 a.m. in the mid-day Florida heat today. It was an intense sweat fest, a decent work out and, as it turns out, a great way to wear out my looney dog. She was passed out on the couch five minutes after we got home. Victory! 🙂

As I was running and the sweat was rolling down my body, I remembered that Starbucks is offering their Pumpkin Spice goodies again! When it’s 90 degrees outside, it’s easy to forget that it’s fall (okay, well actually it’s technically fall in two days). Fortunately regardless of the temperature outside, this fantastic coffee chain still offers fall goodies in Orlando – yay! I like to pretend the air is crisp outside as I sip my Starbucks fall-tastic drinks. 😉

When Ryan got back from his soccer game (yes, he’s crazy enough to run in this heat too), I talked him into a trip to the ‘Bucks for my first Light Pumpkin Spice Frappuccino of the season.

Oh-so-happy with my first Pumpkin Spice Frappuccino of the season

It was just as delectible as I remembered!

Mmmmmm

So Stinkin' Good!

I wish Starbucks would release the recipe for this bad boy because I think I’d make it a point to enjoy one every day! The pumpkin flavor truly enhanced the beverage and the spices all came together to make it the perfect seasonal beverage. Ryan also got into the Starbucks fun and ordered a Chai Tea Latte (also pretty darn delicious).

Someone's Excited!

It's so good I go cross-eyed... Seriously, don't my eyes look freaky-deaky?

We enjoyed our mini drive-by date before heading to the grocery store to pick up various goodies for the week and all the ingredients we need to make tonight’s creole stew! I’m a little nervous because we bought hot turkey sausage for in the stew and I am not exactly the best with spicy foods. Wish me luck!
