Though this pumpkin spice roll out makes me want to whip out the flannel blankets and uggs, here in Texas I’m still bearing the heat. So, I’ll be getting my pumpkin fix with a side of ice and a heap of whip cream.

Starbucks Pumpkin Spice Iced Latte

Happy 15th birthday to this legend! One of my absolute faves, the PSL came back on August 28, and I couldn’t have been happier. And don’t worry for any expecting moms taking it easy with coffee, the caffeine content is relatively low — just ask your barista!
