Meetup & Snacks

Tuesday afternoon I met up with my friend, Marla

We met at our usual spot

Our kids were in school and we both carved out a little window of our day to connect


It had been awhile since we last saw each otherToo long!

We had 90 minutes of girl talk and non-stop gabbing

And it was fabulous

Fall and pumpkin themes are in full force at Starbucks as I suspected

But I did not partake in a pumpkin spice latte from ‘Bucks when I knew I had my own recipe for homemade pumpkin spice lattes

Thanks for the compliments on these from my last post and it was fun to hear just how big of pumpkin fans you really are!  I hope I’ve convinced you to try the homemade lattes.

At Starbucks yesterday, I noticed these cool water bottles

I am a big fan of my Starbucks reusable mug and my KK but I don’t really need another reusable bottle

But I like the graphics and mermaid on these

They also had their Anniversary Blend coffee out in full force

I’ve had it in the past and it’s one of my favorite blends of theirs, but considering I have two new bags of Godiva coffee and the TJ’s coffee find earlier in the week, I think I’m set.

For a little while at least.

After leaving my meetup with Marla and driving home, it was errand time and then a nice run outside

If this is “fall”, it can stay fall for awhile: Sunny, 73F, no bugs and no humidity, a light breeze

Last night I also was hard at work editing pumpkin spiced latte pictures because I really wanted to hit Publish asap on that post!

When I’m working at my computer, I like to munch on a bowl of popcorn (with coconut oil, nooch, stevia, & cinnamon)

I love crunchy food so sugar snap peas + “Spicy Doritos” Cheezy Dip is always good

I also like to nurse a cup or two of coffee at my desk.  Depending on the hour of day dictates how many cups I nurse.

And who am I kidding…

I went to town of a few of the No Bake Peanut Butter Biscoff Cookie Dough Bites

Something chocolatey or peanut buttery is almost mandatory snack food for me


1. When was the last time you met up with a friend? 

Some of you who are still in school probably see your friends daily.

But for moms, working moms, or those of you in the workforce, it seems that once you leave school, it gets trickier and trickier to connect with your friends.

But for me, it’s worth every amount of effort, planning, driving, and schedule juggling to have one-on-one time with your real-life friends.

I left my meetup with Marla, as I always do, feeling alive, happy, and recharged!

2. When you’re working at your computer, are you a snacker?  What do you snack on?

I like to have something to munch on but sometimes I make a mess so fresh fruit, veggies, or things that are easy are what I go for.  Plus, they’re healthier which is nice.

Or I’ll make a Microwave Chocolate Peanut Butter and Oat Snack Bar

I am also a fan of Tootsie Pops at my desk because at least they’re not messy

My camera has cocoa powder or peanut butter all over it most days from all the food pics I take with it.  I really try to keep my computer clean.

I have a Fast, Easy, & Healthy Snack Ideas post, too.
