Yesterday Scott and I went to our local Trader Joe's to pick up our pumpkins for the season. Sometimes we get them from a pumpkin farm, but this year we spotted them for an amazing price ($2.99) and thought it would be fun to pick up some other fall goodies to celebrate.
We were both really impressed with Trader Joe's selection of pumpkins. Sometimes even at the pumpkin farm they can be rotten and moldy (I'm pretty sure the heat does it to them), so it was really nice to see such fresh pumpkins. If it were up to me we would have boughten twenty to decorate, but we settled with three (and some pumpkin goodies from inside).
These red gourds were my favorite! We didn't end up getting one, but they just scream fall.
Lately I've been seeing these pumpkin trees everywhere! All of my favorite coffee shops are decorating their tables with them, and I am just loving that. They seriously are the most darling plants!
While at Trader Joe's we also picked up pumpkin pancake mix, pumpkin spice coffee (I caved!), and butternut squash soup. In fact, I'm going to brew up some of that coffee right now!
Later today we're headed out to a pumpkin farm for some fall fun, and possibly making a trip downtown.
What are you up to today? Have you purchased your pumpkins yet?
