Tomorrow’s Friday = I couldn’t be happier!! This week has actually gone by really fast, can’t complain too much 🙂
I wasn’t really hungry this morning due to the fact that I had a massive granola snack attack last night around 8:30. YUM! But, I knew I’d be hungry later, so I had my morning bowl of oatmeal. Today, as a test, I left out the teaspoon of brown sugar that I usually put in there. Sadly, I could tell – darn! I sprinkled in some regular Splenda, and it was a little better. I don’t really like to use Splenda unless I have to – I just have some leftover from when I used to bake with it. What was I thinking (?) baked goods never taste the same without the real thing!
For lunch today I packed an assortment of things because sometimes I like a little “sampler” style lunch. I’ve got a Lemon Lara Bar (my favorite), a 100 calorie pack of cocoa roasted almonds and Cheerios! Two things.
1. I usually hate 100 calorie packs of anything, I think they are worthless and you get like 2 chips. But 100 calorie portions of real food, such as almonds, are just great in my opinion! I had been looking for the 100 calorie packs of the cocoa roasted kind and I found them this weekend at Super Target. Sweet!
2. You’ll notice “Iowa’s Golden Girl” Shawn Johnson on my box of Cheerios. I’m just curious, is the rest of the word as bananas for this girl as Iowa is?? One of the Midwest’s chain grocery stores, Hy-Vee, is a sponsor of hers and there are literally gigantic banners and life size cutouts of her all over every store!! I personally think she’s great, so I wanted to see how much exposure she has outside of Iowa.
Since we’re supposed to get snow this weekend >:O I’m again thinking about warmer weather. Do any of you get the Travel Zoo Weekly Top 20 email? It gives you last minute vacation deals from around the world. Well the email I got yesterday had a CRAZY sale from CheapCaribbean.com: “$48 — All-Inclusive Dominican Republic Beachfront Resort” package! Score! Usually with the Travel Zoo deals you have to be traveling in the next few months, but you can get this deal through the end of December!! I’ve always wanted to go to the Dominican…let’s see if I can get the husband to agree…muwahahaha.
No picture of breakfast because they came out grainy and I ate the bowl too fast to take more! So, I’ll leave you with a shot of the beautiful Dominican Republic. 🙂
My bedtime snack last night was some delicious granola, which reminded me that my mom recently told me her bedtime snack when she was a kid was either a carrot or a 1/4 of a head of iceburg lettuce!! Are you kidding me? I would have protested!! But, she said she didn’t know any better, and she always thought it was great! What’s your bedtime snack of choice?
