Happy Almost Weekend all! This morning I woke up feeling refreshed and glad that the weekend is almost here. Then again, I am sure having a 1/2 day of work and then an extended weekend can make you instantly smile when you wake up 😀
Lately I have only wanted simple things for breakfast and today was no exception. I started off with a Thomas Double Fiber English muffin topped with The Bees Knees (Honey Peanut Butter). I think I could eat this combo EVERY day if you all wouldn’t get tired of seeing the same thing LOL.
I had a “sugar spotted” white nectarine that was so sweet it honestly tasted like candy. Who needs jelly when you have fruit that taste this good.
On the side I had a BIG cup of Starbuck’s decaf coffee (3/4 coffee, 1/4 hot water). I had an interesting conversation with my co-worker today about decaf coffee and the chemicals used to make it. I do my best to stay away from as many chemicals as I can ~ I buy organic decaf coffee and do not use the bleached white filters (in fact, we have a re-usable filter). If my heart and brain could handle caffeine, I would be all over it. I guess we all have our vices and I do not have decaf coffee every day……it’s a “treat” when I do.
Ok….not sure why I felt the need to tell you all that so now you know, right? LOL Today was also Farmer’s Market Friday. I skipped the pretty presentation and just grabbed a few grapes, another white nectarine (loaded with sugar spots!) and a pluot. I had the grapes and nectarine for my mid-morning snack…….
Along with some Annie’s Honey Bunny Grahams. I know better than to leave the Bees Knees sitting on my desk because then somehow it finds a way into EVERYTHING I eat. So, the bunnies felt it was their “Bees Knees” and hopped on a spoon to join in on the fun 😀
Believe it or not I actually did attempt to make mini pb bunny sandwiches out of this first, but, these little bunnies are just way too small for that 😀
Before I left to start my weekend, my super sweet co-worker/friend brought me over a bag of tomatoes from her husband’s garden. I cannot wait to dig into these ~ I am sure they won’t last a day in our house.
I was honestly entertained by the funny looking tomato ~ I am totally giving THAT one to The Husband.
When I got home I had TWO fantastic packages waiting for me. The package was from Fiber One. I LOVE the mini cooler and the cute pink paper inside ~ I know, it’s the little things! 🙂
Yoplait and Fiber One are taking their creamy yogurts to a whole new level ~ You can get them in little 50 calorie mini 4 packs in FOUR flavors ~ Peach, Strawberry, Key Lime, and VANILLA! I LOVE that that they use REAL fruit and you get 20% of your daily fiber intake in one little container. The BEST part however, might be that these new mini packs are 0 WEIGHT WATCHER POINTS!!!
They were nice enough to send me TWO of the new flavors to try ~ Strawberry & Key Lime Pie. I LOVE the cute Hungry Girl character with zero guilt on the packaging ~ fun!
I know you all need to see the nutritionals to believe it ~ Yup, 0 Weight Watchers points for 1 and 1 Weight Watcher Point for two. Not too shabby if you are feeling the need for more.
I am not sure which flavor I want to try the most since I LOVE both Strawberry and Key Lime Pie! I am thinking I might have to have some cinnamon graham crackers crumbled on the key lime pie with some whipped cream for dessert.
As you all know I am not a big fan of artificial sweeteners and I do not use them in anything I make. There are some exceptions where I allow them into my diet if they are used in moderation and in a healthy way. I feel like yogurt is one exception and honestly I LOVE Yoplait yogurts. I cannot wait to give you all reviews and ideas on how to use these fun mini containers.
The next package was from Kristi @ Healthy Living One Day At A Time. Do you all remember when I won her Noodles & Co Giveaway? My gift card arrived today with the sweetest note and Operation Beautiful Post It! Thank you Kristi ~ You honestly made my day with your sweetness and it was just what I needed!
After opening my fun mail, I was off to get my oil changed, tires rotated and to get the nail out of my car that was threatening to give me a flat tire. I had planned on take The Husband lunch but he stopped with his co-worker to eat at 11:00 – who eats lunch that early?! LOL. So, I headed to Vasquez and picked up lunch to go to eat while I waited for my car.
I started off with 1 chicken taco with hot sauce ~ LOVE their tacos!
I got a side of beans and cheese for some additional protein. It also came with a side of homemade chips.
Ok ~ I’ll be honest…I wasn’t super hungry so I pretty much just used a few chips to eat the cheese off and called it good 😀 I wanted to save room for the Froyo I knew I was getting later.
I was all prepared to dig into The Amazing Adventures of Diet Girl, but, guess what? The dealership had The Food Network on TV. I was so excited to get caught up with all my favorite celebrity chefs. I am sure all the guys waiting LOVED it too! 😀 LOL I tried tweeting while I was there but Twitter was having none of it *sigh* Oh well ~ it was the most relaxing afternoon.
After being good to my car, I stopped by to drop our photos off to our wedding dress lady (she wants to post them in her shop), stopped over to pick up a slice of cake for The Husband (more on that later) and then it was off to BayBerry for some Froyo! I got all 3 flavors (original, chocolate and strawberry) with yogurt chips on top. I LOVE that if you show your receipt from last time they give you 10% off automatically ~ Yeah!
The Husband is patiently waiting for me to head out and watch our nephews football practice. I have a fun dinner planned out to cook but not sure if we will be dining out with our family or not.
