Things I Love About October

Julie Jarnagin: Hey guys. Can you believe it’s already October? This year is flying by. In honor of the new season, I thought I’d share a few things I love about this month.

Sweater Weather – I love when I can pull my boots and cozy sweaters out of my closet.

fall - sweater

Family Traditions – Taking the kids to the pumpkin patch, trick-or-treating…I get to be a kid again.

Coffee – Of course I drink coffee all year round, but there’s something extra satisfying about a cup of warm coffee this time of year – especially a vanilla latte from my favorite coffee place downtown.

Fall - latte

Gone Girl – I just finished the book, so I’m extremely excited to see the movie (although, I have a love/hate relationship with the novel. If you’ve read it, you’ll probably know what I’m talking about.) A coworker, and I have recently started a tradition of reading the books that are going to come out as movies and going together. It’s a fun girls’ night out.

Just one more cup…Coffee with Debora Dennis

20140821_075156To say I have a coffee problem would probably be among the understatements of the year. Anyone who knows me, knows you don’t come between me and my daily dose of caffeine. đŸ™‚

Even on the hottest summer day, my day starts with a steaming cup of coffee.

I can’t walk by a Starbucks in the mall without stopping.

I stop at Dunkin Donuts at least twice a week on my way to work for a seasonal cup of Joe.

My cabinet at home is filled with a dozen different kCup varieties.

And if you invite me to your house for dessert and DON’T serve coffee…there’s a good chance I’ll make an early departure to get my fix.

I like the flavored varieties, but I’ll drink regular if that’s all that around. I won’t drink decaf if I have choice. I drink it light, no sugar…but load up on the sugar-filled, probably toxic, flavored non-dairy creamers (recently finding myself lactose intolerant, I don’t know what I’d do without them!) My family calls me the “coffee diva” and sadly I can’t argue.

There is always a coffee cup sitting next to my computer – and I will drink it cold too.

What’s your food addiction?
