September First


Today I am anticipating fall...relishing its approach! This is my favorite season for so many reasons.

The weather has cooled...a bit...haven't had a triple digit temp in a little over a week, I heard today on the radio! And that is something to celebrate for sure!

So I am sipping a Pumpkin Spice Latte from Starbucks and eating one of my scones...and I'm about to go hang up my fall wreath on the front door.

I wish I could say I'm wearing a sweater and setting wood by the fireplace for Brent to build a fire...but we're not quite there yet...so I'll just smile in anticipation!

And a note about my birthday...we had a fabulous time eating at Salt & Pepper...a delicious meal for sure...tszaziki sauce and pita bread, tomato and fresh mozzarella salad, lamb with asparagus and delish mashed potatoes...and the finale: banana and nutella crepes...probably one of the best desserts I've ever had...and I am an expert in that department, let me tell you! It was so good to just have a leisurely dinner just the two of us...able to visit and relax and share and not worry about picking up spoons and sippycups from the floor!

We went to Dallas (Frisco and Plano to be exact) on Tuesday...did some damage at the Container Store, scrapbook store, and Stonebriar Centre.
Hadleigh and I rode the carousel at the mall...I think she enjoyed watching it go round and round more than riding it...but it was fun nonetheless. We finished our daytrip with dinner at Cheesecake Factory...yummy as always, especially our Lemon Raspberry Cream Cheesecake. Another seriously good dessert...maybe my new favorite there.

Thanks for the birthday wishes...
So...what cheesecake do you order for YOUR birthday????

Happy Belated Birthday!

That photo makes me want to hop in the car and go get myself one of those babies! Yum! Starbucks is the BEST!

Cheesecake...well, I have to make my own because of food allergies, but it always involves chocolate!
