September, is that you?  Aren’t cool 70 degree temps and breezes supposed to accompany you?  What is this 97 degree nonsense?  Also, if you could please keep Hurricane Earl away from my friend’s wedding on Friday, that would be great.  Kthxbye.

I kicked September off with a bang and stopped at Starbucks this morning for a Pumpkin Spice Latte.  Funny though, I ordered a non-fat and the barista asked if I wanted whipped cream.  Wouldn’t that pretty much defeat the purpose of ordering non-fat milk?  Thank you for asking, but no I would not like whipped cream.  With the first sip of pumpkiny delight, I was whisked back to memories of football tailgates, pumpkin picking, beerfests, Uggs, and sweaters.  It was fantastic.

Last night, I finally got back into my routine and hit the gym for a run.  Since I’ll be traveling again right from work tomorrow, I really needed to get a run in last night and another one tonight.  I did 5 miles at a 9:05 pace and felt relatively comfortable during it.  Well, that’s not completely true I hit mile 3 and realized I had to pee, so I quickly darted to the bathroom and knocked out the last 2.  Also, thanks for all the positive feedback about the 5k I signed up for.  You all really boosted my confidence!

Dinner last night was probably one of the most random things you will ever see me eat.  Just about the only things in my fridge were a zucchini and corn, so I made a veggie wrap with some humus and mac and cheese.


mac and cheeeeese

The wrap was good, but I actually would have enjoyed it more without the humus.  And well, the mac and cheese speaks for itself.  That’s always delicious.  I wrapped my night up with the season finale of Make it or Break it and The Rachel Zoe Project.  A pretty good Tuesday if I say so myself.

Tonight will involve another run and packing for my long weekend in DC.  I’m still trying to decide what to wear.  I originally planned to wear the same dress I wore to the wedding last weekend, but after it left cuts on my rib cage and me looking like a pregnant lady in some pictures I’m rethinking it.  Sigh.  Not that I have anything else to wear, so I’ll probably end up wearing it.

Ok, happy Wednesday all.  So close to the long weekend!

  1. Yay for PS lattes!!!!!! Ahhh, fall!

  2. I totally agree with you on the temperatures. I can’t stand this humidity and heat! Where is fall? I cannot wait to wear my uggs again. 🙂

  3. Yes pumpkin spice latte! I love getting the syrup in just basic coffee.. DELISH!

  4. True story: I rarely get a “sweet” drink from Starbucks (hot chocolate, mocha, frappuccino, etc) but any time I do, I get skim milk AND whipped cream. Whipped cream is pretty much my favorite thing in the entire world.

  5. Aww pumpy

  6. I actually find that veggie wrap as extremely delicious looking. Zuchinni and corn, huh? Hmmm….

    And I love the whip cream question. It’s like super-sizing your order, but getting a diet coke on the side.

  7. Haha they always ask if I want whipped cream when I order a non-fat latte. It makes no sense!

    That wrap looks good, and now you’ve got me craving mac and cheese for dinner!

  8. OMG, pumpkin spice lattes are here!! That means pumpkin ale isn’t far behind…

  9. Love Rachel Zoe Project! I used to watch it years ago prior to a man in the house and totally forgot about it. Until I caught a marathon this past weekend and now I’m hooked again. Gotta love the guilty pleasure tv.

  10. I have so many events coming up that I need outfits for and I have no idea what to wear for any of them. I wish I had a sugar daddy, haha!

    LOVE the mac and cheese. Always.

  11. I had my first pumpkin spice latte this morning! And I always order “skim with whip” – hehe. I figure if I’m going to splurge on the whip cream, I should save with the milk!

  12. Pumpkin spice isn’t my fav but it’s ok, I am a white chocolate lover, ever try that at Starbucks? I toaster oven ALL of my wraps, that’s the first thing I thought of when looking at your wrap.

  13. I am so looking forward to pumpkin, uggs and sweaters. Too bad it’s still 95 degrees here!

  14. I hear you with the 97 degree weather!! I’d like it to be around 80.. k thanks!!
