Kelly Bensimon is effing crazy

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!
