Two words connected with a hyphen that perfectly describe my weekend: jam-packed.
I kind of feel bad for y’all this week. Now that I am a two job workin’ woman trying to fit in a yoga + flossing challenge on top of adult responsibilities, there is a serious lack of hilarious, random non-food pics of yours truly and her life.
Wait a sec…
Two words connected with a hyphen that perfectly describe me right now: uber-narcissistic.
Who am I kidding? It’s all about the food!
Yesterday, after cleaning like a mad woman, I rewarded myself with a trip to the Dane County Farmer’s Market where I found these little guys…
Ummm…how cute are these mini butternut squashes? WAY CUTE.
I had big plans to take gloriously gorgeous pics of the farmer’s market since the weather was so nice. However, instead of worrying about documenting every little detail, I just enjoyed the experience. What a thought, huh? Taking some time to actually enjoy the sights, sounds, smells and beautiful produce…we should all do it more often.
When I arrived home, this goodie box from a certain Experimentarian was waiting for me…
Gingerbread Chai tea? Pumpkin spice salt water taffy?
One pumpkin spice truffle + gingerbread truffle?
Tea exchanges rule.
Emily…thank you SOOOO much! The package was wonderful, and your note was so sweet. Your tea delivery shall be on its way tomorrow!
I then yoga-ed for 60 minutes with the help of Dave Farmar before heading to work at the PT job again.
This morning, I had an 8:30am quarterly staff meeting to discuss the chaos that is holiday shopping at the PT job. In order to fuel up for the inevitable annoying group role playing, question answering and watching of obnoxious videos from 1989, I stocked up my belly with some Apple Pie Oatmeal.
1/3 cup oats
2/3 cup organic skim milk
splash of vanilla extract
1 medium Haralson apple
lotsa apple pie spice
sprinkle of almond meal
drizzle of maple syrup
Since I am without nut butter (ahhhh, the horror!), this protein-lacking bowl only lasted me a couple hours. I noshed on some emergency dried apricots, a banana + trail mix granola bar while inevitably role playing how to sell dinner wear to someone while pimping out the store’s credit card.
I got home from work starving, so I immediately broke open my last bag of Food Should Taste Good chips – this time in good ol’ corn flavor! Paired with salsa, you can’t not love.
If you don’t remember, the lovely peeps at FSTG sent me their products to review awhile back. Yes, it took me two months to dive into the yellow corn. Verdict? LOVE ‘EM. Crunchy, salty, corny + delicious.
Followed up by all 10 pieces of pumpkin spice taffy sent to me from Emily. Yes, all 10. Yes, pumpkin spice salt water taffy is the new pink.
Then, I ran 3 1/2 miles with my friend Chris while my lungs burned incessantly.
Dinner made up for it thankfully.
That would be 1 Sunshine Falafel patty with BBQ sauce, kale chips with parmesan and balsamic-roasted cippollini onions. I really want dessert, but since I did scarf savor each individual piece of that saltwater taffy, I am going to try and hold out.
Off to do laundry.
Two words connected by a hyphen that perfectly describe my mood: dread-filled.
