The pumpkin spice take over is real. I read this hysterical blog post entitled, "Everyone needs to calm the ***k down about Pumpkin Spice!" In the post, this person's take on this whole seasonal craze led to everyone on earth dying during a pumpkin spice apocalypse. It was so comedic and got me thinking... I'd be the first to go during a real apocolyptic over-exposure to pumpkin spice. I mean check out my actual pantry...
Okay, maybe freshly brewed PSL from Starbucks doesn't appear in my kitchen cabinet every morning, but the daily cost sure does appear on my debit card. The husband is well aware of our fall spike in coffee sales in our personal finances every year! I'm just one of those people! I'm adding to the craziness and spending the dough on every product with pumpkin spice slapped on the label. But at what cost? Today is Halloween and we didn't carve pumpkins this year or head out to a pumpkin patch! Am I too overwhelmed by pumpkin spice in my diet that I'm avoiding the real thing? I hope you've had a better fate this fall season and actually enjoyed typical pumpkin essentials like carving a spooky jack-o-lantern and visiting a fun and festive patch! Comment below and tell us how you've spent time celebrating FALL!
