Friday Favorites #13

It’s Friday! Can you believe it’s the last Friday in August already? It seems like yesterday we hopped in the car and drove up from Southern California and permanently moved!!

Pumpkin Week!

If you follow my blog, you will know that I announced I will be hosting a Pumpkin Week Sept 14-18. I will feature a bunch of different pumpkin related posts!  On the finale of pumpkin week I will host a pumpkin themed link party where you can link up your favorite pumpkin posts!  How much fun is that? I will also pin all of the posts to my “All Things Pumpkin” Pinterest board!  

Are you excited? Bookmark my blog, follow me on bloglovin, instagramtwitterpinterest, and google plus.… just so you remember to come back and party!

Salted Caramel Snacks

I was at Costco this week and sampled these salted caramel baked corn crisps.  Obviously they were good, as I know have a Costco-size bag of them at home! They hit my sweet tooth without all of the calories… and they were just the right flavor I was in the mood for as we head in to fall. Don’t you think salted caramel tastes better in the Fall and Winter? 


This past weekend we visited my parents house in Reno and went golfing! They live near a golf course and my husband and I decided to go visit and get a round of golf in.  I hadn’t swung a club in over 3 years… my husband hadn’t played in 4 years.  We were really rusty. Granted, I’m always really rusty since I never took golf lessons. In fact, I don’t have my own clubs.. I just use my husbands. We’re cheap like that. Anyway, it was pretty fun! I like driving the golf cart but despite driving I still got 7500 steps in on my FitBit and we only played 9 holes! Pretty good! I think it is something we could continue playing in the future.

Do you play golf?

Making S’mores with Ghirardelli

While we visited my parents we made s’mores as they have a fire pit in the backyard. I did take pictures but they all turned out blurry… apparently I can’t hold a s’more and try to operate a camera.

Anyway, instead of milk chocolate we tried ghirardelli milk chocolate squares filled with caramel. It was pretty good!

 We *almost* tried this chocolate which now in retrospect I think would have been really yummy!

 With Fall coming up though, I think the pumpkin spice chocolate would taste delicious too!

Alright, that will do it! See you in SEPTEMBER!!

    I LOVE Ghirardelli with caramel…I had no idea they made pumpkin spice! Snatching that up the second I see it in the store! That Salted Caramel Cosmos Creations stuff is sooo good. I've never golfed aside from my fiance and I going to a driving range once…I am HORRIBLE!

      The first time I had the Ghirardelli with pumpkin spice was a free sample at Disneyland… I might have had a few free samples that day hee hee. I am not very good at golfing too. I can hit it in a straight line but not very far and rarely off the ground and thats about it! Thanks for stopping by!

    I love shopping at Costco! It can be dangerous though. I have a sweet tooth and all of their sizes are quite large. One of my faves is the Tate chocolate chip cookies they sell. I love sitting around a fire pit and roasting marshmallows. I never would've thought to use those ghiardelli chocolates for smores. Yum! We're hoping to build a fire pit this Fall. I don't play golf but some of my relatives do.

      I have never had the Tate cookies, next time I go I will look for them! Costco is the best, I love all the snacks they have for tasting Thanksgiving week. Yum yum!

    Ghiradelli S'mores sounds fantastic. I'm looking forward to Pumpkin Week. I hope you're having a great weekend.
