I (Sarah) loathe Pumpkin Spice flavoring. I love pumpkin scents and flavors; I love spices scents and flavors, but when you mix the two together, I just don’t care for it. I know, I know, how dare I not like Pumpkin Spice, everyone loves it but me it seems. I’ve come to expect Pumpkin Spice Latte’s at Starbucks, and even Pumpkin Spice Oreos, but this year, it seems there’s more Pumpkin Spice than ever before.
Pumpkin Spice Morsels instead of chocolate chips, pumpkin spice lip balm, pumpkin spice tea and Pumpkin Spice Peeps are just a few of the gross Pumpkin Spice things I’ve spotted so far this year. Oh, and now there is even pumpkin spice SPAM,and pumpkin spice cough drops!
Are you a pumpkin spice fan… or are you like me? What new pumpkin spice products have you found?
There are 25 Target stores around the US that have a Disney store inside of them! And guess what!? 2 of them are really close to me (Jeni) here in Dallas, Texas! I went to check one out, and it’s pretty cute! I thought maybe it would be an actual small store inside the store – with walls separating the Disney section. But it was really just an area dedicated to Disney stuff – although it looked super cute and almost felt like walking around a Disney store!
It wasn’t as big as I thought it would be… but I also am just used to going to a really Disney store. They are about 750 square feet (so, still pretty large) and there are over 450 items (including 100 that, until now, were Disney retail location exclusives)!

This Zoppan Travel Wallet is calling my (Jeni) name! I love it for every day use…it has a spot for everything, is super cute, comes in tons of colors AND it’s only $14.99! I really like these wallets that I can put my phone in, too.
Check that out! This Red Volkswagon Van Mug is the perfect gift idea for a friend of mine (Sarah) that loves the classic vans. It’s just $9.90.
Excuse me? What is THIS magnificence!?!? This, friends, is The Masterpan. It seriously ROCKS at helping with less dishes, and getting more done at one time. I (Jeni) NEED this in my life. No, but seriously. I NEED it!!

Trader Joe’s has a Carrot Cake Spread. I (Sarah) am not too fond of carrot cake, but this actually sounds pretty delicious. It’s made with real pieces of carrots, plenty of different kinds of fruit like pineapple and orange peels, raisins, autumnal spices, plus cane sugar and molasses for sweetness.
What would you use this carrot cake spread on?
This is too cool, for the tea lover! It’s a two-sided tea stand so you can store your teas… and it’s super compact, too, so it doesn’t soak up a lot of space. Plus, the little bins are removable, which makes it really convenient and easy to use. It can even store up to 100 bags! I (Jeni) just bought this for my sister as a Christmas gift, since she loves tea.
What’s your favorite type of tea?
Ok, these Fully Loaded Pasta Shells are AMAZING. You can stuff them with whatever you want, and I (Jeni) give you 2 yummy options, and you can take it from there! YUM YUM IN MY TUM tonight for dinner!
