Happy weekend, everybody! This is pretty much our most low key weekend for a while (and it has been a while, too), so I’m happy! We have an OTF class this morning and then are going apple picking this afternoon. Then tonight, no plans at all! I actually made a big veggie lasagna yesterday so that we could stay in and take it easy. Bring on the relaxing! Any movies we need to watch?
This was a really productive week for me at work. Even though my to-do list is forever endless, I did feel like I was able to catch up on a lot of things I’ve been meaning to get to. I’m organizing some fun giveaways over the next couple of months so keep your eyes open for that. I also did my first postcard mailing so I’m anxious to see responses for that. In all of my business strengths, marketing is not one of them, but I am trying! We used to always joke that the finance team and marketing team were always at odds in my old job. Now I’m taking on both positions so I’m constantly playing devil’s advocate in my head. Never a dull moment when running a business.
And the biggest Keep It Sweet news? In case you didn’t see on Instagram and Facebook, I finally have a line of Keep It Sweet Desserts coffee! We are starting small with one flavor, but I’d love to expand if the demand is there. I think the Pumpkin Pie Coffee will be the perfect pairing for our Pumpkin Pie Blondies, but also a great addition for anyone ordering a gift basket or box of sweets.
And now for this week’s updates:
Most popular product: Triple Chocolate Cookies
Current seasonal specials: Halloweeen Gift Basket, Chocolate Chunk Ginger Cookies, Pumpkin Pie Blondies, and Pumpkin Pie Coffee (Brand NEW)
Most popular recipe/blog post: Easy Low Fat Pumpkin Sheet Cake

I hope that you all have a wonderful weekend!
I love the sound of your day today. I’ve been dying to go apple picking for ages now but it will have to wait until post-move I think :)
And if the next time I see you a bundle of pumpkin pie blondes happened to appear I would be ok with that! :)
coffee and dessert! SMART!!
That low fat pumpkin sheet cake looks amazing! And since I was planning to pop open my first can of pumpkin this weekend, your timing is perfect :)
I want to go apple picking too!
You are doing SO well, I am so excited for all your successes!
