I’m supposed to be reining-in my spending, yet somehow I ended up buying a pumpkin-flavored coffee from Starbucks this morning.
I did, however, manage to justify my purchase. I forgot my travel mug with freshly brewed coffee in it on my kitchen counter, so, of course, I needed coffee. I couldn’t go through the whole day without my caffeine fix!
Man, I need to get it together.
For lunch, I made a homemade salad with Romaine, tomato, cucumber, and leftover peanut noodles from last night’s dinner. The noodles tasted so much better cold! Delish! Maybe that’s a peanut noodle secret?
As expected, I took part in Cookie Friday this afternoon. I went with an Oatmeal Raisin Cookie and a pot of tea from the Cafe Gato Rojo.
I tried a new kind of tea today: Mt. Olympus. I liked it, but didn’t love it. As the description says, it’s very “delicate,” but I guess I prefer my tea with a bit more flavor to it.
I’m going to miss the Cafe Gato Rojo so much! It’s been the perfect blogging location for the last 9.5 months. I’ve spent so much time here– it almost feels like a home away from home. I hope I can find a new place just as good!
Beth T made these Peanut Butter and Jelly Thumbprint Cookies last night and ate one for breakfast in honor of Cookie Friday!

I have a rockin’ Friday night planned, let me tell you! I’m staying home and CLEANING my apartment. Don’t be jealous!
Ever since we moved into our new place, it’s been in complete shambles… and now it’s disorganized and dirty. Eww! My apartment is actually starting to give me anxiety, so Mal and I are spending the entire evening organizing, rearranging, and scrubbing it from top to bottom. I’m actually sort of looking forward to it!
