A couple hours at home, two nights of celebrating Halloween, birthday celebrations, lots of studying (which involved lots of coffee) and a sorority date party rounded out last week. I'm pretty sure October was the quickest month of the year. Is it just me or did we say hi and bye to October in what felt like about a week? Either or, I am so excited that it is November. Halloween kicked off the holiday season and I am ready to keep celebrating.
This time of the year gets busy and stressful, but is full of mostly fun things. First off, my trip to New York. I leave on Wednesday and will be back Sunday with a full report in my "bites" post next week!
-Mariposa Coffee is a local coffee roaster here in Norman and they produce some amazing coffee beans (sold at the store I work at, The Social Club.) Anyway, they took to the food truck concept and have created a coffee truck which is now parking at a location near campus every morning during the week from 7-1 p.m.
-My Mariposa pour over coffee and a favorite new breakfast of mine. Cut up strawberries, a handful of granola, and a big spoonful of fresh ground almond butter.
-I was able to spend a little time at home in Edmond on Wednesday before my mom's birthday dinner. Being in Edmond of course means a stop at Chirps and Cheers. It's impossible to leave empty handed so I picked up these cutie cards.
-Crispy browned butter and pumpkin seed cookies. Healthy and easy, use this recipe and make these cookies as a part of your fall baking!
-Caramel apple pops. One of the best halloween candies and perfect accompaniment to my studying.
-A pecan ice cream ball and my favorite birthday girl!
-November 1st means Christmas cups at Starbucks.
