Trader Joe's Pumpkin Ice Cream I

1. I have a problem. See above.

2. Completely freaking over these salted caramel apple dumplings. The pictures… gah. Actually, the whole blog.

3. I put it out there on Facebook over the weekend, but there seriously needs to be a classier pumpkin emoji. I am just not all about the jack o’ lantern. You know, sometimes it just doesn’t jive with my obligatory instagram fall scene.

4. I’ve managed to become really good at singing songs through tunnels. Like when the radio satellite dies halfway through? It’s my mission to sing it perfectly until I’m out.

5. These 36 things you never realized everyone else does too is spot on. Like especially #2 and #3.

6. This is unconfirmed but I am 95% certain that Nickelodeon reduced my bedtime Friends episodes at night from four down to two. I don’t even know what to do with myself. The answer would probably be sleep.

7. Are you a fan of Halloween? Like dressing up and what not? I actually like Halloween in itself but I loooooathe dressing up. I have no desire to dress up as anything ever. I’m no fun.

8. Sooooo Trader Joe’s now has a cookie butter swirled with chocolate. It kind of reminds me of the old school peanut butter jar that was swirled with jelly that was ultimately 100% disgusting but I would still beg my mom to buy it anyway. She never did, so in completely rebellion I had to buy the cookie butter swirl jar. Considering I used to dip large chunks of chocolate into the cookie butter jar, it’s like they are inside my brain. They know me.

9. BUT. My issue with things like these speculoos butters is that I grab a spoon and am all “oh this is fine I can eat half the jar I’m getting healthy fats blah blah blah.” WAIT. no. It’s crushed cookies. CRUSHED COOKIES>THIS IS NOT PEANUT BUTTER. fail.

10. Remember back in the day (like over 2 years ago) when I was so obsessed with Pinterest? I took a break for a while because it stressed me out (it’s like Vegas, sensory overload) but now I am reacquainted (what an awful word to spell) and can’t stop. My current favorite things to pin are libraries. I want to have a home with a gigantic monstrosity of a library.

11. I really don’t know how I feel about Homeland. After the second episode I was like… how long can this storyline go on? The first season it was realistic (my husband totally disagrees, whatever), the second season it ventured outside of that a bit… and now? I just feel like they are RUINING IT. Please turn it around. Please. Also, it’s pretty pathetic that all I still want on the Walking Dead is a Carol/Daryl hookup.

12. Uh, speaking of TV, this huge iconic of my childhood was replayed and it was… fantastic.

    And, I don’t really dress up…I don’t wanna! When I taught preschool I dressed up as a baker (meaning, I wore an apron over my clothes) and decorated my classroom with confections I fashioned out of scrapbook paper. But I DO wanna decorate and hand out candy. No one ever comes to my house, though…except maybe like 2 trick-or-treaters and those kids score, cause I give them ALL THE CANDY. I’m thinking I’m going to buy a witches hat this year and cover it in black glitter…and just wear that for the rest of the halloweens forever.

    Oh, I totally want Daryl and Carol to get together…but I don’t think it will happen, because if it did they would immediately kill one of them and I would cry huge, fat tears of sadness…and she is SO not as old as people seem to think she is. GET IT TOGETHER!

    Yiu were actually the whole reason I started using pinterest. You were ever so kind to supply me with an invite way back when you could just sign up. My GF calls me a Pinterest Addict, I accept and own the title. Current pinning obsession besides my wedding is Make Ahead Crockpot meals.

    Love. Love. Love. Halloween. Everything about it. I even like to dress up and plan a costume every year, but unfortunately I think I am getting to old for that…. and have probably been too old for a long time!

    OMG I am so glad I am not alone in the Carol/Daryl hookup!!! Why has this not happened. Also my boyfriend is speculating a Michonne and Rick hookup. Kind of weird, but I could totally see it too. I’m with you on the Halloween dress up. I’m planning on wearing a witches hat and painting my nails black to handout candy. Maybe I’ll throw on a black dress. That’s sufficient right??

    I, too, dip large pieces of chocolate into the cookie spread.
