I don’t think I need to explain the above title if you
wasted your morning the same way I did tuned into the Real Housewives of NY.
I was up at the crack of dawn thanks to a text message from Jess at 6 am. Awesome. Payback’s a bitch Jess, so prepare yourself for a 2 am drunk dial from the west coast this weekend…
Needless to say I was jonesing for some caffeine shortly after.
I messed the froth up on this one, but that’s what happens when you are brewing in the dark (just kidding it wasn’t THAT early, I’m just being a drama queen).
Lately I have been having such restless nights of sleep though…again it took me a while to fall asleep last night and I woke up 3-4 times during the night for no reason. What’s wrong with me? The thing is, I still feel refreshed when I get up, so no harm no foul I guess?
More coffee + More trashy tv = Happy E. I love my lazy mornings.
So eventually I re-focused my efforts on more stimulating things and did some crosswording (it’s a word) while snacking.
The peanuts shared some of their salt with the carob covered raisins. Perrrfect. I had SO much more than shown…
The nuts only whet my appetite for more nuts (TWSS!!), so it wasn’t long until I made myself this little baby!
I am certainly in a nutty mood today. As massive as this scoop was, it was hardly enough to quiet the inner voices demanding MORE MORE MORE.
But after snacking the morning away, I decided it would be prudent to make a more nutritious and substantial lunch (while still incorporating peanut butter of course).
Luuurve me some PB + J!
Now THERE’S the $ shot :) Hello oh-so-sweet-oozing peanut butter…
After lunch I set off to conquer some pre-vacay errands. I brought an odwalla bar on the road, and I didn’t get back home until dinner time. Looks like my gym sesh got the boot today. Oops!
I did manage to squeeze a pedicure in. Check it out.
Supah cute right? I love the bright color, now I just gotta get a rockin’ tan to match. Clearly, I’m channeling my inner Bella Swan here. Did I just make a Twilight joke? Yes Jen and Caitlin, I did. Lord help me. This porcelain princess has got to get a life!
For dinner I had NO clue what I was in the mood for…and since the rest of the day was on the less healthy side, I decided to go with a pretty basic (clean) dinner.
First I roasted some brussels. I swear – these truly are one of my favorite foods. We foodies are a rare breed.
I’ll let the photo do the talking…
This monster included brussels, spinach, cherry tomatoes, chickpeas, brocc slaw, and shredded carrots (plus a blob of sabra hummus and a dash of Country Bob’s on the side).
I’m an equal opportunity salad maker: no veggie left behind. Who knew vegetables could be so political?
All that was missing was a vehicle for hummus to get to my mouth quicker…
[insert aha moment here]
Mmmm…carbs loaded with hummus.
After Kyle got home we did laundry. No really, I swear, we actually did laundry.
I was in the mood for summery fruit later so I opted for a rather healthy dessert.
H2O-melon (nerd alert), apples, and a bowl of berries. NOM NOM.
Pomegranate green tea (decaf)…and I’m off to bed.
PS Gina is doing a giveaway, and I reallllly want to win this vegan cookbook!
