Time to see what I’ve accomplished on Stephanie’s Freakin’ Awesome Legendary List (FALL) challenge.
2) Drink a pumpkin spice latte DONE!
Will I lose PSL street cred if I admit never trying one of these? Anyway. . . so, I had my first pumpkin spice latte a couple of weeks ago. It felt odd breaking from my usual venti, no whip, nonfat, white chocolate mocha, but I persevered. In order to experience the drink at its best, I ordered it as-is. No substitutions or deletions.
First drink – Yum. This is pretty good.
Third drink – Yeah, I can see why people like this.
Eighth drink – That aftertaste is weird.
Tenth drink – Yeah, no. Ew.
Empty cup – I need to get rid of this taste. Anyone have gum?
I did not like the pumpkin spice latte. To be fair, I’m not a big pumpkin fan. It tasted good to me initially, very spicy-chai, but that didn’t last long. Also, it was kind of orange. Apparently, I don’t like my coffee to be orange tinted. I will not be ordering that again.
3) Eat something that really shouldn’t be pumpkin flavored COMING SOON!
This one has grown into a full-on pumpkin product taste-testing event. I have a group getting together on Sunday – we will try all of the weird products so you don’t have to. Look for a post about our results on the 20th.
5) Create a centerpiece with gourds COMING SOON!
I haven’t quite decided what I’m going to do for my gourd centerpiece, but it will contain these miniature donut pumpkins.
8) Buy candy corn, but probably don’t eat it DONE!
It was purchased and – as expected – I only ate one piece. It did look pretty nice sitting out on the table though. I completely forgot to take a photo; you will just have to trust me on this one.
15) Create a fall-themed wreath COMING SOON!
I did a short poll on facebook asking readers to choose their favorite wreath out of four possible choices. I’m planning to have this done by the end of the month (to go up when the Halloween decorations come down).
