Fall Favorites

If you know me or have been reading my blog for a while, you know that I love, love, love summer.  Cold weather kind of sucks in my opinion.  But, I will have to admit that fall has grown on me a little this season, just a tiny bit.  Here are a few of my favorite things this fall.
Starbucks Salted Caramel Hot Chocolate ~ so yummy!

I spotted this hay bale while driving down Interstate 81 in VA ~ love it!
Go Hokies!!

This bag makes me happy.

My favorite Pumpkin Bread.  Make some today.  Really.

Pumpkin Smoothie
Recipe from cleaneatingclub

1/2 cup canned pumpkin puree
1/2 cup vanilla soy milk (I used plain)
1/2 cup crushed ice
1 T honey
1 tsp. pumpkin pie spice

Place all ingredients in a blender or Magic Bullet and blend until smooth.
Serves one.


  1. You have hit a lot of my fall favorites as well. I haven't tried a pumpkin smoothie before, but it sounds delish. GO HOKIES! My husband and his buddies are going to the game tonight. Hope it's a good one!

  2. I love the salted caramel hot chocolate from Starbucks too. I can't wait to try it again! I've always wanted to try a pumpkin smoothie. Is it sweet enough like a normal smoothie would be?

  3. I love fall stuff!!! especially all the pumpkin baking:-)

  4. Cupcake Activist - I would not consider it sweet like a smoothie you get from McDonald's or Smoothie King, but it is yummy. The website says it has 4 grams fiber, 2 grams fat, 162 calories per serving, which makes it 3 WW points. I love it for a healthy, filling snack.

  5. The Fresh Market makes me happy too!

    Btw, I recently got a doggie and he'd totally ride in the basket. He doesn't like to jump down. We have to pick him up and set him down. lol
