On A Blustery Day

There's something to be said about what a chilly, autumn walk can do for your soul. Our evenings have been getting more chilly as the month goes on, and our mornings feel even cooler. In Phoenix, the locals have an old saying that come Halloween it will either be so cold you have to wear a coat over your costume, or you'll be sweating to death during the evening's festivities. Halloween usually seems to set the tone for what kind of end of fall/winter we're going to have, and I already have a feeling that this year is going to be a chilly one!

Today was an extra blustery day in Phoenix - the wind was blowing hard and the leaves were swirling around in the air. I took a nice long walk on my lunch break and came back feeling refreshed and ready to take on the rest of my work day. I stopped at Starbucks on my way back to the office, so the iced coffee I got may have had something to do with it too! ;) In the mornings lately, I've been bringing hot pumpkin coffee with me to work - I almost feel ashamed to say what brand it is, but I'm not joking when I say it has the perfect amount of spice + pumpkin flavoring without being overpowering (like most flavored coffees seem to be). You wanna know where it's from? Ok - twist my arm! It's from Dunkin Donuts! My folks picked it up for Scott and I awhile back and I've been obsessed with it  since! Ok, now let's pretend like this coffee conversation never happened...

Scott and I are spending the evening in getting caught up on blogs and emails (me!), and watching American Pickers and cuddling with the puppies (him!). Scott is sitting in our recliner with the feet up and Piper is laying in between his legs with her head on his foot - SO cute! Even though she's our little spitfire, she's so loving and warm. Scout likes to spend his evenings laying on the cool tile and occasionally watching TV. When he was a pup we would catch him watching TV all the time! I swear, these two pups have the biggest personalities!
