I had such a busy Saturday! 😯 I did, however, sleep in until 8:30 AM and IT WAS AWESOME! I felt amazing waking up without an alarm. :mrgreen:

After breakfast on the road (egg and cheese sandwich + pumpkin spice coffee), Mal, Murphy, and I picked up my car from the body shop. Mal dropped it off to be fixed earlier this week and it was ready to pick up this morning.

You see, when it rained, water would drip down from the sunroof onto the driver’s side. The leak start out small several months ago, but I waited until it got really bad to get it fixed… like, puddle on the floor of the driver’s side. 😳

Anyway, it’s now fixed!


Mal helped me clean the interior of my car this morning.

Now that I will be driving to work, I want my car to be clean and pug-fur free.


Of course, Murphy helped “Dad.”


After cleaning my car, I headed to the grocery store to do our shopping for the week. With a combination of coupons and in-store sales, I only spent $34 on a week’s worth of groceries. Not too shabby!

I’m such a dork, but I got so excited seeing POM pomegranates at the grocery store! I knew exactly where these babies came from!


Speaking of pomegranates, look who was on the POM Wonderful homepage! The POM folks linked to my recap of our orchard tour. Cool! 😀


For lunch this afternoon, I made myself a ham, artichoke, and pesto sandwich on an onion roll.


It was delicious! I loved all of the different flavors.

For dessert, I broke out my stash of Scharffen Berger chocolate from BlogHer Food.


I ended up trying all four flavors. Yum!

After lunch, I spent the rest of the afternoon getting my life in order! After the insane week that I just had, it took me a good 2-3 hours to organize everything. I feel so much better now!

I was on my own for dinner tonight, so I opened a can of soup and popped it in the microwave.


Creamy Butternut Squash soup! Mmmmm… it’s the perfect comfort food.


I added a piece of raisin toast for dipping.


Awesome Saturday night at home dinner!


I have a hot date with Murphy and my DVR.

Enjoy the evening, guys!
