just a little splash


I was feeling a little guilty about my whining over the heat yesterday so I had to pop in today and counter with a little something positive.

I'm sure you've all heard that Starbucks has their pumpkin spice coffee out early this year. And with me already craving fall, it was so tempting not to do a quick drive through for a pick me up.

Then I found this Pumpkin Spice Coffee Syrup at Target...

I added some to my coffee this morning, opened the sliding door to let some cool air in, lit a fall smelling candle and instant autumn.  This stuff is delicious and it's sugar free.  I don't use a sweetener in my coffee, just a little milk and all it took was a splash of this syrup and I was in heaven.  They have a salted caramel flavor that I can't wait to try as well.

Of course, there are so many other important positive things in my life and I never forget how totally blessed I am.

Happy Sunday!

xo, Patty


  1. Sounds like you are definitely ready for fall, Patty.

    The smells and tastes of autumn came through in your post.

    If the syrup is sugar-free, I wonder what they use as a substitute. Sound good, though. Susan

  2. I love pretty much pumpkin anything, but I don't like any flavorings in my coffee. Just plain half and half and a little stevia for some sweetness. You're not missing anything with the pumpkin spice latte at Starbucks...it is loaded with chemicals. Take a look about it on foodbabe.com.

  3. Thanks for sharing this, Patty. I was just in Target today. Have to make a return trip. Love that it is sugar-free.

  4. Trying so hard to pretend it is still summer in the UK! You almost made me want to give in and embrace Autumn, but going to hold out for an Indian summer. The coffee sounds delicious.

  5. Cute cup!
    It cooled off here this morning... yay!!
    Woke up and walked in temperatures in the high 40's.

    It is so nice after the hot summer we've had.

    No matter what.. I'm decorating for Fall today :)

  6. Gorgeous photos as usual. They make me long for autumn-----almost. I prefer the heat : )

  7. Thanks for sharing Patty! I too love Autumn, and Pumpkin Spice. I'll be looking for this at Target.

  8. I drink my coffee black usually but sugar free tempts me. Sounds delicious!!! xo Diana

  9. Patty,
    The cool 'nip' of Autumnal Air hsan't come yet to the Prairie!
    I am longing for the day when the patio door can swing open, once again!
    I drink a French Vanilla Cappuccino from Aldis. . .very inexpensive and delicious!
    Thanks for the gentle reminder to cherish life's blessings daily, dear friend!!!

  10. I sure wish I drank coffee. I wonder if it would be any good in cocoa? Is that weird? I think I will pick some up to send in a goody package for a friend of mine. That's almost as good as using it myself.
