Join Me for a Latte?

Friday, November 21, 2014

Thanks for joining me for lattes today! I'm very excited to catch up! I've got a warm Starbucks Chestnut Praline latte in my hand and I'm ready for some serious catching up! By the way, this latte is much better than I heard a coworker describing it. But then again, I love pralines!

I know the weather is so generic to talk about, but can we take a moment to comment on this crazy weather?! It has been in the 30s for the past 3 days. I'm not ready for this kind of weather. Really, where did my nice fall days go. But on the bright side, Sunday is supposed to get up into the 70s. Only the good Lord knows what the weather will bring for next week, we might have a foot of snow dumped on us.

Speaking of next week, are you ready for Thanksgiving? I'm not. Well, I'm not mentally ready. I can't believe Thanksgiving is less than a week away! Where has the month of November gone? Seriously. So, do you have your whole meal planned out? I'm not really cooking this year. I actually work on Thanksgiving day, as well as Black Friday... and Saturday. But I did take Sunday off to spend it with my family. So we plan to have our Thanksgiving meal then. I hope wherever you'll be on Thanksgiving, you can spread a little kindness and giving with those around you.

And for those of y'all that watched my Golden Vlog, here are those famous rolls I love so much. My grandmother taught me how to make them, so I pounded out a batch for our Thanksgiving game night. And yes James, my favorite side dish is rolls!

I also have a confession to make. My friend Suzzy Q and I made candles the other weekend. It was so much fun. Definitely a learning experience, but I had a ton of fun. Anyway, I became addicted to it. I mean, y'all already know how much I love candles, but Suzzy Q and I just spent $100 more in candle making supplies. You know what we'll be making in the kitchen, and it ain't gonna be dinner honey!

I'm really glad we got to catch up before things get so crazy around the Thanksgiving holiday. This weekend I will be walking in the 5k to raise money for St. Jude's Childrens Hospital. But I know from now until next Sunday, I'm going to be running around like a chicken with my head cut off. Hopefully I'll have a little time to sleep between now and then!

Until next month, I hope y'all have a safe, happy, and blessed Thanksgiving holiday.


  1. Glad you liked that one better than I did! To me, it just tasted like coffee with milk and sugar! I couldn't taste the chestnut or praline flavor... maybe I'll try one more time because I want it to be amazing!

    I am SO ready for Thanksgiving! It's my favorite, and I am super stoked!! Family is coming into town for the first time, and I am so excited! :)

  2. I am obsessed with rolls haha! I'm a total bread person.

  3. Those rolls look amazing.. I am so glad the month of November has just flown by! But, that is just me. Haha.
