Good morning everyone – It’s FRYDAY!!! FRYday because I fried in bed all night last night!! It’s hot!!
Thankfully, I am cool as a cucumber right now because I am sitting in the frosty cold lobby of a Ford Dealership whilst my car is getting serviced! Seriously you guys – I feel like I’m in a swanky coffee shop or something! They’ve got this really nice customer lounge with a big laptop station and free wifi, huge comfy chairs to sit in while you type and I’m sipping a Starbucks iced latte that I got on the way here. When did car dealerships get so lush?
I haven’t gotten a Starbucks latte in a really long time, by the way, and I’ve forgotten how delicious they are! Ben and I started this kind of cash allowance program where extra items like coffee, clothes…I don’t really know what Ben buys…but stuff that we don’t necessarily need in order to survive, all comes out of this fund that only gets replenished twice a month. It’s really hard forking over $4 for a latte when you know it’s taking away from a shirt or something that you’d really like instead!
I order my lattes with “light ice” because if I don’t, some baristas have the tendency to jam the cup full of ice and I get no actual coffee! 😀 This is the same reason why I order my hot lattes with “no foam” – I’m not paying for air! Who’s with me?!
In an attempt to keep all unnecessary appliances turned off this morning, I made up a nice plate of sliced apples with Barney Butter and a lemon yogurt for breakfast.
This was just what I needed – cool, crisp and refreshing!
I think eating a plate of spiraled apples is more fun than just eating an…apple.
This flavor combination is just dynamite!
This yogurt was perfectly tart and refreshing 🙂
Oh, by the way, I guess I should mention why I’m sitting at the car dealership and not at work – I took the day off today! I have a busy weekend full of wedding activities for a friend and I have a lot of stuff that needed to get done – errands, etc. – so I took today off. Plus, it’s just nice to get away from the office every now and again, you know what I mean? On the agenda for today:
- Get car serviced (oil change, fix car radio)
- Walmart (if Target doesn’t have the things I need)
- Bed, Bath & Beyond
- Manicure and pedicure (this is stuff that would fall into the "allowance fund” but I’ll do it myself, thank you very much!)
As you can see, my agenda is pretty packed, but I’m glad I’ve got the whole day to get it all accomplished!
Have a wonderful morning – I’ll see you all for lunch!
