Hello there! How are you? I have been pretty busy, let me update you! Yesterday after work I spent about 45 minutes in Starbucks doing some work for my part-time job. While I worked I drank a tall skinny vanilla latte.
and tried to avoid staring/puking at the couple making out in at the table in front of me. Um…there is not reason for that! What are your thoughts on PDA? I am fine with a little hug, peck or hand holding, no biggy. But, full on making out in Starbucks? It is a bit much.
At 6:30 I headed to Body Pump. It was amazing per usual! Although I was positioned directly in front of a mirror and got an up-close view of the ridiculous faces I make when my muscles fatigue- very attractive!
After Body Pump, I went to my part time job and worked for a little while and then went home to make dinner. Dinner didn’t happen until about 8:30 pm and I was starving! I made two huge salads one for dinner and one for lunch today. Sometimes when I am making dinner, I will prep my lunch for the next day too. It makes my morning so much easier.
The salad contained:
- Arugula (my new obsession)
- Red Bell Peppers
- A veggie burger
- Black pepper
- Olive Oil
- Balsamic Vinegar
It looks like a whole big mess, but it tasted great! Arugula is great as a salad base because it has so much flavor!!!
For dessert I have two leftover pumpkin dark chocolate chip cookies. These are so good! But, I think they will be the last of the season 😦 Time to move onto Christmas cookies and put away the fall cookies.
I spent the rest of the night reading. I started a new book! So far, I am loving it!
I know a lot of people love Jodi Picoult books, this is actually my first one. I have a feeling a new addiction has begun!!!
I woke up this morning with one thing on my mind, OATMEAL! I made hemp oatmeal with 1/2 of a banana, cinnamon and peanut butter with a cup of coffee.
I opened a new jar of peanut butter and was annoyed that all of the oil had floated to the top 😦 Until I remembered the peanut butter stirrer I had! I used to use this guy all the time! But since I have been buying barney butter more often (that doesn’t need to be stirred) I forgot about it. This thing was super cheap and is a huge lifesaver!
Teddie peanut butter is made about 3 miles from where I live, by the way!
Lunch, like I said, was a repeat of dinner last night.
Today at work we decorated a little bit for the Holidays! I hung my stocking at my desk:
and I put up my desk tree 🙂
My coworkers and I worked on some snowflakes to decorate the door. It was a nice change from work! Here are some of my masterpieces!
Doesn’t it look festive!

****** Adam and I are meeting with the architect about our house for the first time tonight. He is going to look at the house and get our ideas about what we want and then draw us up some plans!!! This is a very exciting step for us! *******
I am so freakin’ excited!!!!! I need to get on cleaning it out, luckily my mom is helping me with it. We have started to make a schedule of what to clean and when. I am hoping to get it cleaned out by Christmas or the first of the year!
EEEEKKK! I hope it goes well 🙂
