white girl likes her pumpkin spice

Over the weekend the weather here in Northeast Ohio dropped significantly, causing this gal to go all OHMYGOD IS IT FALL YET?!

Autumn is, without a doubt, my most favorite season ever and, naturally, one of my favorite things about fall is pumpkin flavored, well, pretty much everything. This is no Jilly Come Lately pumpkin thing either — when I was a kid, my mom took me to the local pie shop in town and I was allowed to pick out any pie I wanted and I picked out pumpkin. I was, like, five years old.

As such, while grocery shopping over the past few days my items started to take on a particular theme.

Let’s see, we have Pumpkin Ice Cream and Pecan Pumpkin Instant Oatmeal (I first tried this about a year ago when I was visiting Sissy and my BIL and they had it. As soon as I saw it at Trader Joe’s yesterday I snapped up not one but two boxes), Pumpkin Spice Coffee Creamer, Pumpkin Pie yogurt, and Pumpkin Spice English Muffins.

I will also confess to spending much of the weekend attempting to track down the new limited edition Pumpkin Spice Oreos. One store (yes, I checked multiple shops. I MAKE NO APOLOGIES FOR THIS) had the spot on the shelf reserved for said cookies but didn’t actually have them in stock yet.

I may need a Pumpkin Spice Intervention.

Love from the ashes,
Lady Lazarus
