just one of those days

Ya know how bad things come in threes? Well, apparently “morning fails” also come in threes.

Case in point:

  • To top my morning bowl of oats with some luscious Mighty Maple PB, I stuck the jar in the microwave for 30 seconds to get it all drizzly and nummy.  However, I forgot that part of the aluminum seal was still on the jar.  In other words, I started a fire in my microwave this morning.  Luckily, nobody PB was hurt.

1/2 cup oats
1 cup water
1/2 cup pumpkin
cinnamon, nutmeg + ginger
drizzle of agave
drizzle of maple syrup
roasted Mighty Maple PB
1 tbsp. dark chocolate chips


  • Second, as I was putting away my precious container of pumpkin puree (Libby’s, obv), I lightly tossed it back in the refrigerator not realizing the lid wasn’t on.  Pumpkin splatter all over, which is not easy to clean up, FYI.


  • Then, as I was getting ready to head out into the rain to walk to work (rainboots on!), I realized I left my umbrella at the office from yesterday’s rainy shenanigans.  Ugh, NOT a way to start out a Thursday.

I would count not stopping to get coffee as my 4th morning fail, but really that’s not a fail.  It’s just an addiction.

Thanks to stomach cramps, I felt pretty sheisse-y (that’s sh!t in German, although this girl probs knew that). However, I was pretty productive and stopped around noonish to enjoy some lunch.

1 cup homemade lowfat Greek yog
9 Nature Valley Mixed Nut Clusters
1 smooshed naner
1 heaping tbsp. Bee’s Knees PB


When I am feeling crabby and not so hot, I usually am just really quiet.  Hence, the afternoon involved work, silence, Diet Coke and Milk Duds. And finding out I didn’t make it to San Fran :(.

But Brandi did – so go and congratulate her!  She totally deserves it.

I was supposed to have my 1st day of work at the chic decorating place I am working at part-time through the holidays, but the boss had to reschedule because she got sick. And its still raining. Both things together made it the perfect night to go home, get my PJs on and relax…



Stuffed acorn squash + roasted brussel sprouts + POM Nectarine spritzer = DELICIOUS.

Due to popular demand, it was also time to tape VLOG #2!  And reveal the new hair color!  Get ready kiddos…unleash a crabby lady with video capabilities, and you never know what could happen.
