Murphy makes me smile each and every day.
Just LOOK at that face!
My husband also makes me smile everyday. He’s a goofball and we’re both kids at heart, so it usually doesn’t take much for us to laugh!
He’s also handsome, so that helps too!
My autumn decorations also made me smile today. Fall is my absolute favorite time of the year. I love apple picking, cider donuts, vibrant foliage, all things pumpkin, and celebrating both my mom’s and sister’s birthdays during the fall.
How cute are these “Newly Webs”? My mom bought them for Mal and me last year. It’s my favorite decoration.
I scored some Pumpkin Flax Granola at the BlogHer Food conference, so I was excited to give it a try– as soon as possible! I mixed it with Chobani yogurt and a fresh sliced peach.
Mal made the most delicious-looking iced coffee this morning, so I just had to have one too. Even though I’ve made the “switch” to hot coffee, some mornings are just iced coffee mornings!
Again, I made lunch in 0.2 seconds this morning, but it turned out much better than expected.
I started with these ingredients:
My sandwich took just 30 seconds to prepare at my desk– and surprisingly, it didn’t make a mess!
Lunch also included a KIND bar and a Honeycrisp apple from my mom. Honeycrisp are my favorite type of apple! I can’t wait to go apple picking!
I’m blogging at the Cafe Gato Rojo, so I purchased a pot of Vanilla Rooibos tea. I’m becoming quite a fan of tea lately.
POM Harvest Tour
So, I have some exciting news for you guys! I was invited to join POM for their inaugural Blogger Harvest Tour!
POM has invited a small number of bloggers to get a glimpse of the POM Wonderful World in Fresno, California during the peak of pomegranate season and harvest.
On the trip, we’ll get to tour the orchards and the fruit processing and juicing plant, and enjoy a special dinner, which will, of course, include pomegranates.
Obviously, I’m super excited about the opportunity to visit the POM orchards and share my experience with the blog world. I’m actually sort of a dork and read the POM marketing book, Rubies in the Orchard, back in April, so I know how difficult it is to harvest pomegranates and turn them into juice. So, now I’m really looking forward to seeing firsthand what the process is all about.
P.S. Rubies in the Orchard is a great read, especially if you’re interested in learning more about brand marketing. There’s some pretty awesome stories inside.
