    I love these! When you said slaying work projects I had the mental image of you jumping around your office with a lance stabbing papers saying “Take that!” A friend was telling me yesterday that she just read Barbara Walter’s biography Audition, I think its called. Shes not a big fan but said it was a really great book. I am adding it to my list. Your upcoming excursion sounds fantastic!

    I love the chocolate icing on those cookies!! And frozen Double Stuf Oreos. YUM! Chips and salsa aren’t guilty pleasures- they are an acceptable part of daily life!

    My September was a whirlwind with school starting, but my favourite part is most definitely the fall weather! I love it!!

    I am really into the Beatles these days, too. I have always loved them! I bought 3 of their albums this week and have been listening to them non-stop! Sometimes I think I was born in the wrong decade.

    The highlight of my September was that September is over, and now I can move on to things that are not scary surgery!
