i am obsessed with pumpkins. in the past few days, i've consumed pumpkin coffee, a pumpkin muffin, pumpkin ice cream (from coldstone... with cinnamon and graham cracker crust crumbs, trust me - you must try this!), and pumpkin pie. i've been told that starbucks has some delicious pumpkin cheesecake cupcakes that i must try. today i carved a barack obama jack-o-lantern... barack-o-lantern, if you will. i used a stencil from and it turned out much better than i'd expected, given my lack of artistic skill.
i think tomorrow morning a pumpkin spice coffee will be necessary...

honest tea honey green tea.

i am an iced tea fanatic. my mom makes incredible iced tea but when i'm not at home, i have to make do with bottled varieties. the best i've found is honest tea's honey green tea. it's delicious and refreshing and just a little bit sweet. it's also fair trade certified, and when i googled to find a picture of it, i learned that barack obama likes it, too!
on friday night i was heading back from new york city, and had just gotten into penn station when i was hit with an unrelenting craving for this tea. luckily, when i stopped at a bakery/deli and asked for it, they had one last bottle hiding out in the back of the refrigerator. perfect!
