1.This zodiac constellation cake is insane. Gorgeous. Oh and raise your hand if you’re also a crazy scorpio.
2. Have you tried the toasted graham latte at Starbucks? Thoughts? I’m kind of on the fence. I like it but feel like it’s lacking… something. ???
3. File under things I could never do: the capsule wardrobe. Maybe I can do a capsule kitchen appliances. It’s necessary.
4. Speaking of, you know what trend I’m really not into? FLANNEL. I just can’t get into it. I think I loved it back in the 90s but the memory that sticks out in my mind most is “modeling” (used extremely loosely) outside of Limited Too with a navy and mint green flannel SKIRT and matching button down. Can you say scarred for life? I love it on others but think I look ridiculous with any sort of flannel.
5. We went to Trader Joe’s for the first time in a loooooong time and let’s just say that Eddie shouldn’t go hungry. We might have came out with five different types of cookies and the cashier was like “oh wow, your little one sure eats a lot already!” Um. No. I sort of want to do a throwback what we got at TJ’s post.
6. 9 month baby faves are up, aka – lots of ridiculous things that as a first time mom, I deem necessary.
7. Okay so I think Masters of Sex has completely jumped the shark after that series finale and I’m just so disappointed! I did kind of enjoy Fear the Walking Dead this week but I also never focus just on that and have to be doing three other things at the same time. The Affair promos are sucking me in like crazy and this week I might rewatch that at night. What amazing show are you excited for? Did you watch Scandal??
8. We finally watched Pitch Perfect 2 annnnnd neither of us were fans. Why why why? Noooo. I’m hoping it gets better with time like Anchorman or Step Brothers?
9. Next Thursday night I’m doing a Girls Night In cooking class, but guys can totally come too! If you’re local, you should totally sign up because APPLE CIDER MARGARITAS.

We need a trader joes in toronto – seriously, all the stuff I see people buying … so jealous!!
And Flannel … yea, no sorry – I can’t. A cute tartan skirt – come at me!! Also, nothing will ever be as good as the first pitch perfect … I thought the second one was okay, but definitely not comparable.
Wish I were local! That cooking class sounds like so much fun!
I think i could totally do the capsule wardrobe. but i’m completely fashion challenged sooooo i think it would help.
that cake looks so cool, but fondant, meh.
do the TJ’s post!! i haven’t been in ages!
I, for one, would certainly read a throwback what I bought at TJs post. Cannot. Get. Enough. Of. That!
Just started watching The Affair and am hooked!
I want to give The Affair a try, it looks really good! :)
The toasted graham latte is on my to-try list! I’m hoping it tastes kind of like a s’more without the chocolate?
I totally dug Pitch Perfect 2 as I watched it in the movie theater, but as soon as I started thinking about it more, I was seriously disappointed. I love the cast and could watch the first Pitch Perfect all day every day, but I think they tried to hard with this one. A lot of it seemed forced? Maybe? And I totally feel you on the toasted graham latte… I guess I was thinking it would taste like a s’more? It wasn’t bad, but it wasn’t good either. I’ll just stick to my super basic PSL for now!
That pic! Can you believe I’ve NEVER had Peace, Love, Little Donuts!? I know, I know. I work right down the street from one, too.
I would love to read a throwback TJs post!! I was there on Sunday and I think they broke the record for “how many things can we make pumpkin or pumpkin spice flavored and put all over the store?” Like, it was a little crazy.
Yes to the TJ’s post!!! LOVE Trader Joe’s so very much. Almost a borderline unhealthy obsession. But that’s okay.
So, Showtime release the season premier of the Affair early over the weekend- I watched it on my app but a friend watched it on demand. I might have watched it twice. My love for that show is so so deep. I also have some very mixed feelings about the Masters of Sex finale. It wasn’t the best season for sure. Oh well!
PLEASE do the TJ’s post! I love those.
Trader Joe’s is a dangerous place for our family… we spend way too much money there!
we ARE freaking crazy
I’d love to see the TJ’s post! Hmm maybe I’ll skip seeing Pitch Perfect 2 then. I held off for way too long on seeing the first one (LOVE) and have been itching to get the second one. But if it’s a let-down…
PLEASE do a TJ’s post! I loved when you did those! Also, I saw Pitch Perfect 2 in theaters and DESPISED it. I hated the new girl. Ugh.
We are looking forward to try lots of these things!
I read a quick thing on the graham latte and totally agreed with what they said…it needs a dollop of marshmallow cream on top!
Um, have to watch the Masters finale. Now i”m worried, bc I was LOVING this season.
crazy Scorpio, here! also with you on the graham latte.
Wanting to give Masters of Sex a try. My mom watches it and tells me a I have to check it out (*cringe). Right now I’m really looking forward to this new season of Scandal. Last season got a tad violent and gruesome for me, although I like The Walking Dead so that’s not really why it was a turn-off…I feel like Scandal got a little weird there for a while, but they pulled me back in by the season 4 finale.
The Affair is also on my must-watch list and I JUST started How to Get Away with Murder. Only 2 episodes into S1 and am already hooked!
I was not a fan of Pitch Perfect 2 either. I really enjoyed the first one though.
And we literally JUST got a Trader Joe’s that opened by us (down here in South Florida) I think it opened this weekend, I am BEYOND excited to go. There was one by my old stomping grounds in the midwest (Chicago), but I was sad to discover there wasn’t one close by when we moved to FL, until now that is ;) YAY!
Why oh why must you post so many donut pictures? Those look AMAZING! My pregnant belly needs them right now. :P
? I too am a crazy Scorpio. Also, I’m finally going to attempt the capsule wardrobe this season (if it ever cools off in California), but I’m skeptical. Mostly because I subconsciously want a Carrie Bradshaw level closet.
Wish I could come to that cooking class and OMG I’m so obsessed with that zodiac cake I can’t even take it
Yes to a Trader Joe’s post! There’s so much there I feel like I always miss out on whenever I go. I love to see what other people find.
Urgh. I just opened some smokey peach salsa from Tj’s that I brought home from my holiday and it’s so damn good it makes me so sad I can’t buy it and eat it all the time, like all day everyday.
But yes for Trader Joe’s post, I want to live/eat vicariously through you!
From another cray-cray Scorpio! ??
I *just* tried a toasted graham latte, and the thing it is lacking is FLAVOR! Seriously, this is the most flavorless drink I’ve had at Starbuck’s. It doesn’t taste like a s’more without the chocolate. It tastes like a s’more without the chocolate or marshmallow. Or graham cracker. Seriously. Don’t even bother.
Okay, sorry, that was my pent-up Starbuck’s rant :)
Agreed, I tried one on Saturday and was pumped for it but it tastes like nothing! Maybe a watered down milk? I thought they made a mistake and just gave me a cup of milk so I took the lid off and checked. I’m not ordering that drink again!
You know The Affair season 2 premiere is online, right??? Showtime put it up last week!!!! Love that show! I watched the first season 3x, definitely suggest a rerun before s2 gets underway again!
get your toasted graham latte with MOCHA. it will change your life. i got a grande with 2 pumps toasted graham and 3 mocha. it was like a s’more.
Yes to a TJ’s post! We have one in town but yet I don’t make the 20 min drive very often at all. I feel like there are things that I’m always overlooking. There’s so to take in!
That cake is killer! And, yep, crazy Scorpio here!
Completely agree about the toasted Graham latte. I wanted to love it, but it didn’t really have any taste. I actually questioned if they maybe forgot to put one of the ingredients in. It definitely needs something. Ended up throwing half of a coffee away. Total waste. You must try the pumpkin ice cream at Trader Joe’s… So, so, yummy. I think I might have tried like every pumpkin thing there, since we just finally got a local store in my area. Dying to try the apple cider margaritas. Wish I still lived in Pitt so I could come.
I’m new to this site…Where is the Thurs evening cooking class at? I live 30 miles from Pittsburgh. thanks.
hi connie! it’s a crate in greentree! http://www.cratecook.com/
I wanted to love Pitch Perfect 2 SOOOO bad… I just couldn’t. So sad!!
I do watch Scandal and I’m addicted! I just started watching Blindspot and it seems really scary, like I went to bed still thinking about it. But I kinda want to keep watching it…
Love The Affair! There is a sneak peak of the first episode on the hulu & showtime on Roku! Maybe you can find it somewhere.
Yes please to the TJ post!
I’m a crazy Scorpion, too!
Please to a TJ’s post!! We didn’t have them in Salt Lake when you would do them back them. I would love to see what you picked up!
Toasted Graham latte – seriously meh. Definitely missing something, but not extra sweetness… cinnamon? brown butter? toasted grahams? = )
Your little one is so precious!!!
I was worried that the Toasted Graham Latte wouldn’t live up to what it sounds like…thanks for testing & confirming! Also, PLEASE do a what we bought at TJ’s post! I love those and need to know what to get next time I find one along my travels.
I gasped at the end of Scandal! I can’t wait to start The Affair…the freaking previews!!! Still have to watch the latest season of MOS. I’m so behind! Cracking up about your TJ’s trip. I’m like the Toasted Graham Latte, it is lacking in chocolate and marshmallows tho. Haha!
