Kind of a #SorryNotSorry situation.

Heh. I used a hashtag in conversation. Oh internet, you have successfully ruined me.

Speaking of which, my spelling is now at an all-time low.

Does this make you cringe for generations to come? Did I just sound like an old lady …. Hahaha. Sad.

I’m just a kickin success these days … also in kind of funny/not so funny news – I got an e-mail last week from a reader noting that my writing was filled with a lot of slag, and they wondered if I also wrote this way at work.

*ROTFL*

That’s how I feel about that.

I shouldn’t have even addressed this, but still.

ARE YOU KIDDING ME internet world, can we all not just sit in a circle, eating cookies singing kumbaya?!?!

IMG_8476

Are you fine looking folks ready for pumpkin season? I’m pretty impressed that most of the pumpkin madness at least waited for mid September – it seems like last year I had an ice cream in one hand and a Pumpkin Spice Latte in another!!

Can we think of today’s recipe as a transition snack … you know, snacky like summer ( although, I’m down to snack on popcorn no matter what the season is!) and warm and cozy like fall … and addicting. Man – oh – man this popcorn is ADDICTING!!

And I used smart pop so I pretty much just ate a bowl of celery … or something like that. heh. either that, or I’m starting to bulk up for winter … you know, like the bears.

My justification skills just got to a whole new wicked-amazing level.
