'tis the start of the season...

What a wonderful surprise to walk into Starbucks today
and be greeted by the "Christmas Cup"!

My first ~Pumpkin Spice Latte~ this year!
A perfect treat on this gorgeous Fall Day!

(by the way...the mini cupcake is one that I baked!)

Stay Cozy,

Tis the season!!!!!
I woke up this morning anticipating the holidays!
isn't is funny how some years you are all into them and some years you don't get into them and are glad they come and go? At least that is how it ias for me.
i think this is going to be a good year!
have a pretty day!

I have to laugh.... I took a picture of my cup this morning too! I know the holidays are coming when the Starbucks Christmas cups arrive :)


Thoughts for the day said...

I am ready for a season of gratitude for thanksgiving and all that it brings us. Then I will be ready for Christmas.

Thank you so much for stopping in for a visit. :) Your family is just beautiful. VERY handsome people.
My "Patient husband" has promised that we can go to starbucks for a Pumpkin Spice Latte in the morning! :) Blless his little heart! Gotta see that Christmas cup. This month is going to fly by and we will be in December before we can think straight about even being in the Holiday season. Right? :):)

Oh, Yippee! That must also mean their Peppermint Hot Cocoa is back! I can't wait.
I loved all the Peppermint Patty ideas, below. Thanks for sharing them with us.
Take care,
Mary Lou

I spotted the sign for the Christmas cups in my local Starbucks on Monday - they hit tomorrow! Can't wait for my first red cup of the season!

hi Carrie - it is nice to meet you too. Thank you for dropping in. I feel so privileged to be working on that little collaboration with Laura, I'm such a huge fan of White Spray Paint (the blog, not the actual paint). And yes, I'd have to agree, if Starbucks breaks out the holiday cups, the season has officially begun. Yay!

Rebecca from Chow and Chatter said...

got to love pumpkin spiced items

Country Dreaming said...

I would love one of your cupcakes--are they red velvet??????
You Halloween post was cute. I didn't see the Halloween patties at any of our stores. :(
Where did you get those cute spiders from???


Monica said...

Your picture is so cheerful, and your cupcake looks delicious :)

Catherine said...

Dear Carrie, Thank you for visiting my blog and following. I love to meet new blog friends too! Blogging has been so much more than I ever anticipated. I have met the nicest people and they have become my friends. I look forward to including you on that beautiful journey of blogging.
Your have a delightful, spirited blog chock full of great ideas. I love the idea of putting the cookie in the brownie. BTW~It is difficult to pick one favorite candy from Halloween, but I do like Butterfingers, although I think they might have changed the original recipe, somehow they seem a little more cookie like. Well, as you might suspect, I think our friendship is off to a great start. I am chatting away~ Blessings, Catherine xo

Our Starbucks...maybe all of them.... had tall drinks for 2 dollars after 2 o'clock the week of Halloween. I had my first pumpkin latte ... but I forgot to say decaf... so I took it to my husband (o:

I miss my olive green crockpot from my wedding in the early 70's. My newer one... red... because I liked the red... always cooks to HOT. Oh well.

Christmas and Starbucks, love it!

I'm wanting to get out more sparkle lights, and decorate ~

It's the season for crock pot meals (yours looked yummy!) and homemade soup and candles ambiance.....

and oh my your cupcake looks delicous!

Thanks for stopping by my blog for a visit!

C'est moi Claudette said...

Hi Carrie
I swear I commented on your crock pot post, but I don't see it??
I was saying how Randy was using the crock pot last night. He made a pull pork with the pork loin. IT WAS YUMMY...
Now I must get one of those Pumpkin Spice Latte fast.
Stay cozy too.
Love Claudie
P.S. LOVE Peppermint patties too ; )
