Pumpkin Wardrobe + A 20-Calorie Pumpkin Drink

Layers. Layers. Layers.
That's the key to dressing this time of year!

When I let Drake outdoors in the morning, it is so incredibly chilly.  But during the middle of the day, it is h-a-w-t!

This weekend, along with decorating our home for fall (and more importantly, Halloween!) I'll also be doing the switch out from warm weather clothes to cool weather clothes.

I've already started pulling some of the brightly-colored Lilly off of the hangers and folding them up.  I'm already favoring autumn-colored hues.  This pumpkin color is a favorite of mine.  Why stop at a Pumpkin Spice Latte?  It's equally as pleasing in the form of a blouse or pair of cords.

Speaking of pumpkins and the beloved Pumpkin Spice Latte ... while we all know how good this Starbucks treat is, it's no shocker that it may not be the best for the waistline when consumed on a daily basis.  I'm not even going to post the calories -- I'll let you research that if you truly want to.  But, Ian and I have a sneaky way of getting around this.

1 cup coffee (0 calories) + 1 tablespoon sugar free Torani vanilla syrup (0 calories) + 2 tablespoons fat free half and half (20 calories) + a few shakes of pumpkin pie spice (0 calories) = a yummy "pumpkinny" 20 calorie caffeine boost!


So tell me pumpkins, how are you adding this flavor, scent, or color into your life this fall?

  6. I always ask for my PSL nonfat, no whip, 2 pumps. It makes me feel better about drinking so many. I have no idea if it actually makes a huge difference calorie wise. P.S. Love seeing you cheering on the Pirates! I went to ECU : )
