Happy weekend! How was your Friday night? I had a girls night and went to see One Day and bawled my eyes out. Which can mean one thing and one thing only-froyo. [If you want to cry and need an excuse to indulge in some ice cream, One Day is your movie.]
This morning started off swell with a cereal bowl, something I’ve gone way too long without.
Multigrain Cheerios, Kashi Crunch, wheat bran, frozen blueberries, and Arrowhead Mills Puffed Rice Cereal thanks to the wonderful people at Swanson Health Products. Kashi is my homegirl, but sometimes I need something a bit less dense. The puffed rice cereal added a light and fluffy texture and I was left satisfied for quite a few hours without feeling like a bloated cow. The taste wasn’t extravagant, but I’m a huge stickler about texture, and these were phenom.
With breakfast under my belt, I was ready to tackle a good day…until my eyes feasted upon some ticks roaming around on the couch. Swollen, blood-thirsty dementor ticks. Be thankful no pictures were taken.
1. I am not a bug person.
2. I slept on this couch 2 nights ago.
3. I am not a bug person.
We have 2 labs that I guess tracked them in, so now we’re all on edge and having the fake itches. If you’ve ever had a tick problem, how do you get rid of them? I don’t want them sucking out my soul tonight while I sleep.
Speaking of sucking souls, school is slowly sucking my energy already. Two weeks in and I’m pooped. Thank God (again) for Starbucks and caffeine.
This is what my day will consist of yet again. But what would a weekend be in this hicktown without a little country music? I’m giving the twang one last shot at a country music festival today, and after that we’re officially breaking up. Not that we were ever together.
And it will also consist of this: good food.
Cookie dough Ice cream smoothie with Brown Rice Protein powder. Best. Addition. Ever. It doesn’t have a funky aftertaste or clump up like whey sometimes does. I also made my pancakes with this protein powder (sans egg) and I couldn’t get enough of the flavor. New favorite protein fo sho.
Kettle corn topped with melted dark chocolate and Swanson Organic Coconut Oil. So long EVOO, I’m loving the sweetness the coconut oil adds to just about everything!
Enjoy your Saturday and say a prayer of THANKS for your family and friends, and for the families who lost a loved one on 9/11. So thankful for the people who choose to devote their life to protecting us and our country!
HOW DO YOU KILL A TICK!?! These little monsters are immortal.
What does your weekend consist of?
