Try Something New

One of my October goals is to try something new.  Before I even made this into a goal I knew that I wanted to try the seasonally appropriate pumpkin spice latte.  This is what we call a win-win.  I get to set and accomplish a goal (giving my life a sense of productivity and purpose) while simultaneously providing myself a reasonable excuse to take a field trip to Starbucks. 

Because I knew what the end result of this goal would be in September, this goal could have been easily accomplished on October 1st...but in the land of Amy, procrastination is king, president, and prime minister.  So 22 days later (today) I FINALLY had my pumpkin spice latte. 

It looked...yummy.

It liquid pumpkin pie in a cup.

 It what I imagine drinking a melted pumpkin scented candle would taste like.

Amy = soooo disappointed. 

There was merely a faux pumpkin flavor and no spice to speak of.  This is what I get for procrastinating.  I should have just ordered one on October 1st and I would have known then...instead I talked about it for weeks.  Goal for November: Less talking more doing?

I sat at Starbucks listening to Jay-Z rap about his 99 problems and wondered if Jay-Z has 99 problems, then I must have at least 103 of them.  While wishing I had ordered my usual mocha latte, I made some extraordinarily easy Halloween cards.  (Seriously...I stuck a sticker onto an already made card.) 

Oh well.  Now I know.  At least I didn't get pulled over for being young and black with my hat real low.


  1. I've never had the Starbucks one, but the Dunks Pumpkin Late is a favorite of mine. Except the two times I've had it this fall Madeline has screamed bloody murder the whole following day. I don't think she likes them at all.

  2. Oh Amy. You at least accomplished to goal. In my book that's a gold star :)

  3. Also - Next time we have a coffee date. You should just come to my apartment and we can have "Pumpkin Spice" coffee from my Keurig brewer. I assure you - you want be disappointed. AND BONUS - company of the lovely me! :)

  4. S- I might be persuaded to try one at Dunks...although I don't know if I could do that to you or Madeline.

    T- Get out your gold stars 'cause I already accomplished a second goal just didn't blog about it yet!

  5. were you doing 55 in a 54?

  6. Thanks for the homemade card!
