Happy First Week of Fall!

Okay, last Friday was the first day of Fall 2011. And I missed it. But this is the first full week of fall, and that's got to count for something.

What's the best part of fall? It's not the cooler weather. It's not even the pretty leaves. And it's definitely not the ragweed that plagues so many of my friends and prevents them from playing outside with me.

The answer to "What's the best part of fall?" is absolutely "Pumpkin spice lattes!" Obviously. Unless you don't like coffee, in which case I'm surprised you want to read what I have to write anyway.

Coffee = <3
Pumpkin Spice Latte = Autumn <3

Two weeks ago The Other Kelly brought me a pumpkin latte from Crossroads Coffeehouse. That Kelly knows the key to my heart. In order to save money, I know I must make my own pumpkin lattes at home. In case you've forgotten, here's the Money-Save Coffee Math. Last week I picked up some Pumpkin Spice Latte Syrup from Williams-Sonoma. Had I looked at the price tag, I would not have bought it. But it was a little bottle presumably of pumpkin goodness, so I didn't tell the cashier to put it back when she rang it up at $12.95. *choke*

I'm trying to cut down on sugar right now anyway, so I'm going to make this syrup last. It really is quite delicious. But once it's gone, I'm going to try to make my own.
