Peppermint > Pumpkin

It's only the first few days of November and people are already going crazy over Christmas! Halloween was just over, now Christmas things are all over the place in stores. I can't believe it! While I like November because its my birthday month (10 days to be exact), I also think Thanksgiving is very important and shouldn't be overlooked!
 
With that said, I love Thanksgiving, but I love even more the food and goodies that post-Thanksgiving brings. I feel like this fall everything has been pumpkin-ed out.. I am now ready for peppermint season!
 
This weekend Tyler and I were out running errands while I found about 100 new peppermint things that I am now obsessed with.
 
First, I love a white chocolate peppermint mocha (skinny) 10000x more than any pumpkin spice latte. Can I get an Amen?? I mean, the pumpkin latte's are nice, but I much prefer the peppermint mocha! And I could honestly care less if its in a red Starbucks cup or a purple cup! I also saw McDonald's has them out, too! I don't have a Starbucks close by, so McDs will have to do for now!
 
I also came across these FABULOUS peppermint white chocolate M & Ms! HOLLA!! These are amazing. I am going to have to stock up for the rest of the year!!
 
Then, I was getting some last minute groceries before Tyler's dad got here and found this chex mix. It is divine. I still have a stomach ache from eating half of the bag yesterday. I'm not even kidding!
 
I discovered this deliciousness last winter... I don't love the taste of this coffee as much as I love the incredible smell! Sometimes I just want to make the coffee to make the house smell nice!

I saw these while in Wal-Mart, grabbed them and thought... "I'll find a good recipe for them later!" Well, I did just as I was looking for the picture on Google!

How amazing do these look? I swear, finding food blogs is destroying my wedding diet!!

I cannot wait to make these! I'm so excited!!
 
I may be a huge weirdo, but I love things peppermint flavored, but not plain peppermints. Yes, weird.
 
What is your favorite peppermint recipe? Send them my way PLEASE!!!!!
 
Have a great Monday!

I'm the same way about peppermint! I don't like peppermint itself, but I like most peppermint flavored things. Happy birthday month! :D

I think I made a really ridiculous noise on Saturday when I walked into Starbucks and saw that the Peppermint Mocha was back. I had literally the WORST morning, and between the red cups and the mocha, I could forget about everything for a solid 10 minutes. LOVE me some peppermint!
