vindow viper

I don’t feel like I should start a post about my bland day without first, acknowledging the date. 9/11, 11 years later, and I know many people who are still very much feeling and living the effects of that day…so thank you to all who risked their lives to help out on that day and every day since.

We woke up this morning bright and early despite having a baby-free home and getting little to no sleep last night. Starbucks was in order. John left to go grab our coffee while I feasted away. I am obsessed with this cereal so please, if you have a Target nearby, run out NOW and grab a box….you will not regret it. 

go get you some!

I made the hubs some waffles on his return home and hopped in the shower after adding a post to . We are going to run out to Best Buy and Kroger in a few and then go pick up the monstas. I see a whole lot of cleaning in our future today, but I promise a better update later! See you then.

Whenever I decided I’m going to clean, that annoying childhood joke about the “vindow viper” pops into my head….anyone remember it? no? Great…proof that I really am NOT funny.


Sunless Sunday

Good afternoon readers! If I could move somewhere that was consistently at a 70-78 degree temperature range year round I think I would be the happiest girl alive. Even though it’s not sunny today, the air feels fantastic.

Last night I decided on the banana soft serve and topped it off with a little cereal. I’m not sure if I mixed it too long this time or just added a bit too much milk but it turned into a cold banana soup…still tasty though.  I enjoyed that while watching a show on wedding cakes and then hit the bed. For some reason, though, I have not been able to fall asleep before 2am lately. It doesn’t matter how tired I feel or what time I lay down, 2 seems to be the magic number. 9:00 seems to be my daily wake-up time, though, so I still get a decent 6-7 hours in. Aaanywho, I woke up at 9 today and made my way downstairs. For breakfast, I had on egg on a bed of salsa, cheddar cheese on top, and half of a 7-grain deli flat. Of course, an unpictured coffee too. MMM.

After breakfast, I took my grandma to the grocery store and we got a bunch of much-needed food for the house. I got yogurt, cottage cheese, bread, soy crisps, a new jar of PB!, spinach, and frozen fruit. Have I ever told you how much I love grocery shopping? Well I LOVE IT.

When we got home we were both starving and decided it was definitely time for lunch. My grandma had leftover spaghetti with meat sauce and I had that boring “new favorite” of mine: Purple Monster! I topped it with Kashi Go Lean Crunch cereal and now I am stuffed. This one was huuuge and delicious. And now, in typical Sunday fashion, it’s time to put my pj’s back on and find a good movie to watch 🙂
