Wednesday Thoughts

This morning while scrolling through the headlines on, my eye caught this one: "Cat poop coffee." I'll just leave it at this: I read it and was grossed out. If you click on this link, you can be too! I don't drink coffee but if I did, I think I'd pass on any coffee beans that had been previously digested by either man or beast. I generally try to avoid eating or drinking poop but that's just me. I'm not here to judge.

I've been shocked all this week to realize it's September already. Is it bad to admit that I'm glad? It was such a busy summer. Busy in the most fun ways possible (traveling, girls camp, Big Brother, visits from friends!) but still busy. Now that it's September, I'm looking  forward to slowing down a bit. (I'm laughing as I write that because slowing down is really, really hard for me.)

I am super excited for fall for other reasons too: cooler weather, less humidity, pumpkins, pumpkin flavored EVERYTHING, Halloween costume planning, birthdays (not mine, thank goodness), and the return of beards. Beards are the best.


All of the men pictured here look amazing with beards except Chris Pine (upper right). Is it just me or does he kind of look like a bearded lady? Usually I'm all about Chris Pine (in the sense that I thought he was really cute in the one movie I saw him in and never really thought much about him again), but his beard is a bit odd.... Is it just me?

A couple weeks ago, I was driving down the road when I saw this older gentleman on a motorcycle riding towards me. His beard was Z Z Top-ish in length and was flying up into his face obstructing his view. He was bobbing his head from side to side trying to avoid his beard but with only mild success. I laughed about this for the rest of the day week. I hope he pulled over and worked something out with that unwieldy beard. It was amazing.

Any of you guys (or ladies, if you are able) out there planning on growing beards for the cooler weather? How do you feel about the fact that we are now in September!?

Happy Wednesday!

I'm super happy it's September! The best month of the year! :) And I love a nice beard on a man, but you're right - Chris Pine's looks a little strange. I'm going to have to start in on my fall recipes soon, too! Yum!!!!

Fall has always been and ever will be my favorite! All the things you mentioned, and then some. No, I'm trying not to grow a beard. The story about the ZZ top man is funny.

Chris' beard looks like it was painted on, like if you were dressing up as a hobo.
