First things first…I need to thank everyone for their wonderfully heartwarming feedback on my last post regarding perfection + negativity! I always get nervous posting personal things like that, because I am much more of a private person. So, thank you for your responses, love and comments! Ya truly know how to flatter a gal :).
After working for 6 hours last night, I woke up this morning and felt like I had been run over by a train.
I was tired.
I was crabby.
And I was sore from a 60-minute Dave Farmar podcast I did yesterday.
What does a girl do? Enter in perhaps one of my top ten creations ever…Pumpkin Spice Latte Oatmeal!
This mix of textures…of hot and cold…of sweetness and more sweetness…HEAVEN, I do declare!
It took me a bit of time to warm up this morning, but I eventually got working. I started getting crabby hungry at about 11:30am so I busted out the last of my Easy Vegan Chili. Don’t fret! I have a feeling more Easy Vegan Chili will be made very soon…
Dipping the chili in salt + vinegar PopChips then finishing up lunch with an English Currant Tart (x2…courtesy of a cookie exchange!) was probably one of the best decisions I made all day.
If I was Mother Nature however, I would NOT consider this a good decision…
Really Mother Nature…17 inches wasn’t enough for you last week? (TWSS).
Snackage occurred sometime around 3:30pm…
That would be three clementines and perhaps the best trail mix I have ever had, courtesy of the kind, lovely Experimentarian herself, Emily! White chocolate chips, milk chocolate chips, almonds, sunflower seeds, dried cranberries + dried apples…
After work, I had planned a visit to the gym, but then I took a look at my to-do list. Gah, that was a bad idea.
A freelance writing project due Wednesday, working at the PT job Tuesday + Wednesday + Friday, finishing Christmas shopping and some other thangs…then I am heading to MN this weekend because my sister graduates from college! my dad’s side of the family is having Christmas on Sunday! and I am having a birthday breakfast bunch with my besties on Sunday!
Yes, in exactly one week, I will be 25 years old. In the words of Jessica Simpson, “I am halfway to 30.”
Dinner was Gourmet Rice and Beans…meaning rice + beans topped with cranberry chipotle cheddar cheese and Bekah’s cumin/cinnamon/maple almonds. Twas’ the perfect blend of savory, sweet and spicayyyyy!
And something funky is going on because this picture wouldn’t fully load. I’m going to call it artistic :).
Alright, I am at the coffee shop now, already paid in advance for a refill and am determined to get this freelance writing done tonight! Here I go…
What is the best decision you made today?
And…what is your favorite trail mix?
