It’s started raining here around 6:05am – precisely the time my mom and I walked back up my driveway after our walk! The rain can’t dampen my mood though – it’s Friday!
Did anyone happen to catch The Office or 30 Rock last night? I was watching in between loads of laundry – and I thought these were two of the best episodes of the season…soo funny – Tina Fey is my personal comedic hero…what a gem!! Catch them on hulu.com if you didn’t see them 🙂
For breakfast I was feeling a little sassy and decided to place my figs in the shape of an “F” for Friday to honor the great day that it is!
Amazing combo as usual:
- 1/2 cup old fashioned oats
- 1/2 cup milk
- 1/2 cup water
- 1 medium banana
- 4 chopped up figs
- toasted almonds
- toasted coconut
- sugar-free maple syrup drizzle
I ate this with a smile on my face and savored every delicious bite. There is truly no better way to start the day!
For lunch I packed a mish-mash of items:
- Lemon AE Dairy yogurt
- Cocoa Roasted Almonds
- Sliced Braeburn Apple
- Crunchy Barney Butter for dipping
- Fruit salad
Super jazzed about the fruit salad. I had some last night for a snack and all the fruits are at their perfect stages of ripeness 🙂
Shout out to my Mom for cutting up her first mango yesterday! She said it was tough, but well worth the effort 🙂 Shout out to my Dad for letting her know that the pit/seed in the middle is very large and she’s not crazy.
Third shout out to my beautiful friend Natalie who is running her first half marathon in Colorado this weekend! This girl is BRAVE! I could never handle that distance at a high altitude! Natalie is a true athlete though, and I know she’ll do GREAT! Here she is in all of her Snuggie Glory:
Final shout out to all of your amazing smoothie recipes yesterday – I am definitely keeping these in my repretoire!!
So excited for the weekend guys!! One of our main, local Farmer’s Markets is opening tomorrow so my mom and I are getting up bright and early to go. Then, of course, it’s the Kentucky Derby on Saturday afternoon – I think Ben and I might hit up our local racetrack for some Mint Juleps 😉 Maybe I’ll make up a recipe for a healthified Mint Julep…I’ll let you know if I do 🙂
What are your plans for the weekend? Any exciting travels planned? Anyone actually GOING to the Kentucky Derby??
