I think I'm a sucker for a gimmick. I'm a sucker about a lot of things actually. I saw on Facebook Thursday something called a Franken Frap at Starbucks & I made it my mission to have one. Halloween was the last day they would serve it. Of course now that I think about it I'm pretty sure you can get one anytime of the year it just isn't called a Franken Frap. ANYWAY, Friday after work I had to go to Sam's to get Halloween candy so on the way home I stopped at Starbucks.
This thing tasted exactly like a York Peppermint Paddy. Like EXACTLY! It was good. I don't know all the details but it's made with green tea, chocolate chips along with other stuff. Since my eating has been so bad I just went with the whip. Why not right?
I think I told y'all my friend Cindy was raising money for the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society & she's running Disney's Princess Half. We did a virtual 5K & these are our shirts Cindy made us.
Rather than everyone handing out candy at each individual house the neighbors just brought all of our candy to Jackie's & sat in the driveway together & handed it out. I don't know who is raising these kids but for the most part trick or treat & thank you were not part of their vocabulary. Then there were the kids that weren't even dressed up. UGH!
Our neighborhood association has a party & we have this cute little train that gives rides to the kids. Once trick or treat was over the adults took a ride.
The older girls were going out & if you dressed up there wasn't a cover. When Allie heard that she threw together a costume. It's amazing how fast she went from "no way, I'm not dressing up" to finding a costume when she found out it was going to save her a few bucks.
Lumberjack/Brawny man. I don't know how she comes up with this stuff. She left the paper towels in the car at the bar but brought the ax with her.
Saturday I actually did some things around the house that were on my to do list. YAY!! There's plenty more to do but it's nice to have something done. Now I just have to make a trip to Goodwill & the library to drop off donations.
Lydia, Scott & Logan ran in a race Saturday evening. I went & watched & then went back home for the Ole Miss Auburn game. Most of our neighbor friends came over & we ate & watched the game.
Sunday was my last birthday celebration for the year. Allison, Vicki & I had brunch at Portico. Brunch is quickly becoming my favorite meal.
They have a build your own Bloody Mary bar. I don't love all Bloody Mary's so I stuck with a Mimosa. I tasted Allison's & it was delicious!!! I'll have one next time. Those shrimp were so good!
Crab Cakes Benedict! Sooooo good!!!
Yesterday I voted on my way to work & surprisingly I didn't have to wait but about 5 minutes so I had time for a Starbucks stop.
My first red cup of the season. I know it's lame but the red cup makes me happy. The skinny caramel latte was good too!
