grateful girl

this week has been very full, following a busy weekend 
and i am exhausted!  i have so much to be grateful for and am happy to share 
a few of those things from my week with you today. 


13. trying new recipes from twitter friend @StacyLOliver
"no such thing as too much lemon" cupcakes
i think i enjoyed making these so much because i had read about them from stacy's 
blog in june.  i wanted to make a dessert without chocolate, which is rare, 
so i turned to the recipe and tried them out for myself.  being the multi-tasker 
that i am, i was also baking 12 potatoes for community group dinner and 
the oven was  25 degrees warmer than her recipe called for.  
the cupcake bottoms' turned dark brown,  a sign they overcooked.  
all in all, the flavor was there (very lemony) and 
several friends enjoyed them. next time, i will be sure to keep the oven at 350,
 as recommended by ms. oliver.

14. it's pumpkin spice latte season at starbucks
i stopped for one on my way to work yesterday.  it was the best $4 i spent this week, but i won't be doing it again for a while at that price.  it feels like fall, so it should taste like fall!

15.  listening (& singing along) to
citylife boston's prelude album while driving to work.
(i'm not plugging it, i promise...but it's totally worth a listen)
their music blesses me every time i hear it. 


16.  the #sachat community
