Good morning! 😎
I am so psyched that it’s Friday! You have no idea! I seriously need a break from working… all… of… the… time! I’m in total burn out mode. Unfortunately, I am multiple chapters behind in writing, so most of my weekend will be spent in front of my laptop, but there will be plenty of fun stuff thrown into the mix– including a Beer 101 course with my hubby tonight, a holiday party on Saturday night, and a video shoot on Sunday. So, the weekend won’t be all work and no play. 😉
Yummy breakfast this morning! My oats were an everything-but-the creation with all sort of goodies mixed in.
In the mix:
- 1/2 cup oats
- 1/3 cup canned pumpkin
- 1 tbsp ground flaxseed meal
- 2 tbsp liquid egg whites*
- Pom arils
- 2 scoops of peanut butter
* If you have questions about the addition of egg whites, check out my FAQs. I used to add egg whites to my oats all the time back in the day, but I’ve since fallen out of the habit. I might have to bring it back!
I also had some iced coffee with a side of pug tail. 😉
The holiday card positioned next to my iced coffee is from my friends, Beth and Caleb… who got ENGAGED last night!!!!!!!!! There’s no other reason for the card in my photo except to say that! Congrats, Bethy!
I’m really looking forward to my Cookie Friday treat today! The other day, Amie of the Healthy Apple sent me a holiday card along with a few goodies– including a 100% vegan Cranberry Chocolate Chunk cookie for Cookie Friday, of course! Thank you, Amie! 😀
I’m bringing this baby to work with me to enjoy later this afternoon. I only bring enough snacks (and treats) for the day because I will eat them all otherwise. I used to pack enough snacks for the whole week and leave them in my desk, but they’d all be gone by Wednesday. Now, I just bring one day’s worth at a time, which makes it impossible to mindlessly snack.
