Pumpkin Spice Latte Overnight Oats

Good morning friends!

A post from me is overdue, I know. I've been moving and traveling. And I'm still working to get everything together at my new place. Rest assured I have many fun posts planned for you once things calm down.

But today warranted a post because it's the much-awaited return of the Pumpkin Spice Latte from Starbucks. Yes, I'm a basic white chick obsessed with the PSL, and anything else pumpkin, for that matter. No, I don't care. No shame. Pumpkin is amazing. Don't let anyone tell you otherwise.

Why do I love the PSL so much? For me, the return of this famed beverage marks the beginning of the fall season. Sure, it's not the official first day of autumn. But this cozy drink kicks off the season for me nonetheless. It means I can now start playing Halloween music and decorating for the season. Oh wait...I already did that. Well, at least now it's acceptable, I suppose. :)

I love the fall season because it signals the start of the holidays. Halloween. Thanksgiving. Christmas. My favorite time of year. Plus it may finally start to cool off in sunny Florida and I can wear my awesome autumn wardrobe again. Ha! What am I saying? Cool off in Florida? Yeah...that's not happening.

Anyway, to get to the main point of this post: If you've been around this blog at all you know my obsession with overnight oats for breakfast. And I commemorate almost every occasion with a new overnight oats recipe. The return of the PSL is no different. So ladies and gentlemen, I give you Pumpkin Spice Latte overnight oats.
