Dear Pumpkin…

Oh Dear Pumpkin,

I know you’ve been sitting so patiently in that lazy susan, just waiting for a little attention.

Don’t you worry. Even though it’s been a while since we last met, it doesn’t mean that I have thought of you any less. But now, after long months of waiting, it is now time for us to reunite. Because if I wait any longer, I may go crazy and eat your whole can at once. And that would not be good. So let’s make a go for it…

Love, Courtney

They’re BAAAAACK!! PUMPKIN OATS! :mrgreen:

I think today may have to be the day that I finally stop at Starbucks to get my Pumpkin Spiced Latte…might as well keep the pumpkin trend going! Besides, it is Coffee Friday. 😉

Workout

This morning I was able to get about 45 minutes of a solid strength workout in, thanks again to Exercise TV. I’ve been loving their new category, “10lb Slimdown” with Chris Freytag, so today I did the Upper Body & Core workouts. I love them, not only because they’re a great workout, but also because I complete almost all the moves without having to modify for my foot. It’s mostly low impact on the lower body, or floor work, which is perfect for gimpy over here! 🙄

This afternoon I’m spending some time with my Mom, doing a little “Back to School” shopping…she offered to get me a new outfit for “back to school” – can’t beat that! 😀

Oh yes, and I almost forgot to share! Yesterday I got my hair cut & colored…what do ya think?

The “do” was a little faded out and dull from all the summer weather, so it needed a little updating. I wanted to add some red undertones this time, and Mom did an AWESOME job on it (she’s a hairdresser). Thanks, Mom! 😀

Trying desperately to use the glass front door as a “mirror” to my camera screen…I’m horrible at taking self-photos!

Stay tuned this afternoon for a little Fashion Friday, Banana Republic style. 😉
