for the week ahead.
Well fall is almost here, it's just DAYS away!! I'm thrilled to say that Omaha has broken it's heat wave and we are able to open the doors for some fresh 70 degree air in our apartment. Hopefully this wonderful weather keeps up! I've already broken out the pumpkin candles and it makes me so happy to have that sweet spiced scent throughout our apartment. I might have even gone a little overboard this weekend when we went out to breakfast and I asked for a pumpkin bagel with pumpkin cream cheese and pumpkin spiced coffee....they were out of the cream cheese and I think that was a blessing in disguise since the pumpkin bagel with pumpkin coffee was already a bit too much pumpkin for one meal.
This week's excitement:
- My favorite pumpkin candles are at target!! Pumpkin Nutmeg Nature's Wick candles have the perfect spiced scent and the wick crackles like a small campfire.
- Pumpkin bagels are back!! YUM!!
- I'm determined to bake my first pumpkin bread loaf of the season this week, I'm just looking for the perfect recipe to start with!
- In addition to my birthday this week - the Omaha Half Marathon is this weekend!! I THINK (hope) I'm ready!!
Happy Monday & (almost) Fall!! I hope everyone has their boots and jeans ready to jump in the leaves - they are almost ready to fall!
