The Pumpkin Obsession Continues

I hope you all had a nice day at work, school, etc. I know I, for one, had an extremely busy day. My mom took me to lunch, which I attended dressed like a bag lady. I’ve dressed like a bag lady since I had surgery. No shame. Make it work. Here’s a picture of me when I was recovering in New York City (where my operation was) after my mom forced me to go outside and get some fresh air. I hadn’t been outside of the apartment in five days. This is what I wore to greet the world:

Boyfriend's shirt. Baggy sweats. Wet hair.

So glam. Anyway, today my mom took me to lunch at my favorite hometown place. Then we hit up Dunkin’ Donuts. It was pretty exciting. I was DYING to see if they had pumpkin coffee. Don’t get me wrong, I loooove Pumpkin Spiced Lattes and Pumpkin coffee from DD stores. But I went on Starbucks’ and Dunkin’ Donuts’ websites to see how many calories were in each of those things, because a.) I know coffee drinks can be full of cals and b.) if something tastes that good it CANNOT be low cal. And I was right. It wasn’t outrageous, but depending on what you got you were in for 150-250 calories. Not ideal. Not 800 calories like some drinks, but not ideal. Then my co-worker who does Weight Watchers posted about how she bought pumpkin flavored Dunkin Donuts coffee because most of the calories from the Dunkin Donuts pumpkin coffees come from pumpkin syrup that they pump in your drink. That made sense To me, pumpkin flavored coffee seems like the best of both worlds. You get the delicious pumpkin flavor but avoid the calories that the pumpkin syrup packs in. I was so happy to find the pumpkin coffee at my local DD.


 I’m going to try it tomorrow with some skim milk and Splenda. Yum yum yum. After that purchase, I came back to my apartment and watched a good chunk of Season 6 of The Office on DVD. Sidenote: Why is Phyllis such a biotch in this season? She is constantly making nasty side comments? I like the sweet, motherly Phyllis in previous seasons. It’s a great season though. Tonight I see a Sopranos marathon in my future. It’s so hard to be sitting in my apartment and NOT organizing. I always want to clean and organize and fix things when I’m in my apartment. But nope. Couch and bed are my only options. Hey, it’s not the worst thing in the world.

Hope the week is going well!
