To laugh often and much, to win the respect of intelligent people and the affection of children, to earn the appreciation of honest critics and endure the betrayal of false friends, to appreciate beauty, to find the best in others, to leave the world a bit better, whether by a healthy child, a garden patch, or a redeemed social condition, to know even one life has breathed easier because you have lived. This is to have succeeded.

TRADER JOE'S FALL FAVORITES
One of our favorite
specialty grocery stores is
These are some delicious fall favorites we picked up on the weekend!
Everything we selected was delicious!
A box of 16 Iced Pumpkin Scone Cookies!
These were bites of heaven....little pumpkin cakes
with a glazed icing! Perfect for breakfast, tea time or a sweet ending!
We all gave these two thumbs up!
This Pumpkin Walks Into a Bar...love the name!
This bar is perfect for an active lifestyle when you need to grab and go!
Perhaps a quick breakfast or mid-day snack ...however,
they taste more like apple than pumpkin to us!
Oh yea....here comes the Cookie Butter!!!
They were sold out of the plain Cookie Butter,
so I opted for the crunchy!!!
Everyone did a taste test and my oh my....
this stuff is divine!!!!!
You can eat it right off the spoon or a more civilized way
would be to spread it on apple slices, waffles, toast or pancakes!
This is FABULOUS!!!
It could be described as similar to a gingersnap
peanut butter on a graham cracker!
We love anything with cranberries....
These Pita Crisps are made exclusively for Trader Joe's
in a family owned bakery. Great with a variety of cheeses and fruits!
And....they are toasted not fried!
I was over the moon happy when I found one of their
new products....Watermelon Juice!
What is there to say....
tastes like an ice cold watermelon!!!!
Now, to add to all our fall favorite snacks...
it's time for our boiled peanuts...
a Southern Tradition we hold in high esteem......
We picked up two big bags of raw peanuts from Sprouts....
oh what a divine autumn afternoon!!!
Bo was sporting his Longhorn scarf in honor
of Red River Rivalry weekend....
the Texas Longhorns scored a sweet victory over Oklahoma!
