I love Becky from Olives ‘n Wine for two main reasons:
- she loves wine
- she believes in treating yourself daily
A few weeks ago I wrote about how I am usually go go go and never stop to do something purely for the purpose of treating myself. Perfect timing for the new Treat Yourself Tuesday link up to start, right?! So here are some of the ways I treated myself last week:
Thursday Matt and I had a legit date night to see the Tallahassee Little Theater’s Spamalot.
I am a HUGE fan of pumpkin ales and wait all year for brewers to release their Fall beers. This year I first saw pumpkin in the booze aisles in AUGUST! umm, what?! I refused to give in and drink a pumpkin ale while sitting in my bikini in 100degree temps. But when Google told me it was National Drink Beer Day, I took it as my civic duty to celebrate with some pumpkin ales. This was the perfect Fall treat.
In related news, I am now buying every pumpkin ale I can find.
Sunday morning Matt and I headed to Dunkin’ Donuts before running some pre-football errands. He ordered an iced pumpkin coffee (after I demanded he change his coffee order from regular to pumpkin flavored) then after much debate between the pumpkin pie donut and the pumpkin muffin, I ordered both. Our lovely cashier caught on to my slightly obvious pumpkin obsession and threw in two free pumpkin munchkins for us to try. Obvi we are now BFF.
Final thoughts: skip the pumpkin pie donut (it is wayyyyy too sugary even for my mouth full of sweet teeth), order 75 pumpkin munchkins, and always, always, always get the pumpkin muffin when given the chance.
I also treated myself to some new tunes:
Shark in the Water and Glamorous are definitely not new and have been floating in my iTunes library for few years but for some reason when they came across Songza recently I was all about them and couldn’t get enough. And I apologize for the inappropriateness of Gas Pedal. Not meant for G rated audiences but fun for the adults.
How did you treat yourself this week?
