Hunting for Apples (A Giveaway)

10 Sep

Good morning all!

Good morning fall!

Good morning cinnamon carrot buckwheat bake and decaf pumpkin spice latte with soy milk.

Good morning grungy old boots with scuffs.  My toes are ready to be covered (read, I’m tired of painting my toe nails.)

Good morning light cardigan, my faithful companion.  I have missed your comforting warmth.

Good morning colorful scarf.  You brighten my outfit and my day.

Good morning perfect running weather.  You motivate me out the door.

I hear that the warm temperatures are to return, but I have truly enjoyed the cooler temperatures of the last week.

Fall is my favorite season, and I am ready for fall and all that it entails…

cinnamon spiced foods

outdoor walks

changing of leaves

The State Fair (19 days!)

Christmas shopping

Honeycrisp apples

I am officially on Honeycrisp apple watch!

I went so far as to call both Central Market and Whole Foods yesterday.

They both agree that the apples will be stocked the last week of September.

 That is also when the fair begins, so I have a lot to look forward to.

BUT! Can I wait that long?

Can you wait that long?

I’m feeling motivated and generous today, so in honor of all that is fall…


The first person to tweet me (@danikracht) a picture of the signage for honeycrisp apples at their grocer or farmer’s market will be getting a $5 Starbucks gift card from me in the mail to enjoy their own fall in a cup Pumpkin Spice Latte!  

Here are the rules:

1. The picture must show the actual “Honeycrisp Apple” sign

2. Sorry, but only readers in the continental US are eligible.

3. You must be following me on Twitter to be eligible to win.

So get your camo out and go hunting for some apples!

Happy Hunting!

And, if you are in DFW, we may just need to enjoy a honeycrisp together…)
