I ran errands with Lilia today and I had to laugh at myself when I got home and started unpacking my shopping bags. Can you tell that I love Fall?
I didn’t realize the magnitude of my fall-ness until the end because I picked up a few things at each store. We started at Michael’s because Lilia wanted to get some supplies for some hair accessories that she’s been making and I thought the hay bale would look cute on my porch with some fall decor. Next was Trader Joe’s where it took me far too long to pick out the 2 large pumpkins on the left (I LOVE the white one!). They were featuring Pumpkin Pancake Mix which took about 3 seconds to find its way into my cart. Then, Food Maxx…I saw the little pumpkins and thought they would make cute “Fall” gifts for my co-workers but they would need something to go with them…a loaf of pumpkin bread? Enter the large can of good ol’ Libby’s.
All this pumpkin/fall stuff today actually was making me miss my Mom. She loves this season as much as I do and I wished we could be shopping & decorating & baking together. When I got home and unloaded my stuff (and took that silly picture 🙂 ) – Lilia brought in the mail and I received this…
I think I might go buy myself a pumpkin spice latte 🙂 Thanks Mom! I miss you!
