Get your minds out of the gutter! ha ha
I'm talking about three large items that I've discovered over the last few weeks.....
A giant egg from my brother's egg farm
One weekend I had to go pick eggs for my brother and sister in law and out came this huge egg!! I just had to keep it to compare it to an average egg! When I cracked it, it had 3 yolks!! Weh!
Giant Apples from my apple tree
I only had one apple tree this year that actually produced apples and over half of the 6 dozen apples were HUGE! I still had a couple store bought apples in the fridge that I used for comparison. It was like two average apples in one!
Ryan's Giant pumpkin
Ryan has always wanted to grow a giant pumpkin and this year we finally attempted it. Our first plant died from frost so if the first one had continued to grow I bet this pumpkin would be even more huge! We both can't wait to grow another one next year.
On another note last week I was on the road visiting clients for work. Right around lunch time I was feeling pretty sluggish and so I said to myself;
"Self, you should stop at a Starbucks and FINALLY try a pumpkin spice latte that you have heard SOOO much about."
Well, I did. And let me tell you....O.......M......G.....I have died and gone to latte heaven!
It was honestly like drinking fall in a coffee cup. I would recommend it to anyone. In fact, I am currently thinking of ways to convince Jilly to stop at Starbucks on our Saturday trip to the city...ha ha :-)
I am officially addicted! I just wish the closest Starbucks wasn't an hour away! Boooo.....
My dare this week is to tell me something you are thankful for.
