Happy Hump Day everyone!! Who is ready for a little sunshine and warm weather?? I know I am!! It was just a ’blah’ day outside today. And it was much colder than expected.
This morning, we were in a bit of a hurry to get out the door. So that meant we didn’t have time for our usual kale shakes.
Instead, there was leftover scrambled eggs with spinach in the fridge. So I heated it up, placed it atop some fresh spinach; dabbed some red pepper jelly on a Trader Joe’s British muffin, and called it breakfast. Not too bad.
Lunch was at my desk: almonds, yogurt and a hard-boiled egg.
Yes, you read that correctly …. coffee flavored almonds !!!! But wait.
I really had high hopes for them. I mean, I love coffee. And I love almonds. I especially love Blue Diamond! So how could you go wrong?!? But sadly, I was disappointed.
Read it again. It’s roasted coffee. Maybe that was the problem. I’m not sure. I think I’ll stick with the other Blue Diamond flavors I love so much (like wasabi, habanero BBQ, honey dijon, lime & chili, etc etc)
By the time I got home, I was exhausted. Could not stop yawning.
I declared a no-cook night. Thankfully there was a Newman’s Own pizza in the freezer for the kids. (I tried a bite of Luke’s and it was pretty good)!
And I made myself a big salad. With sriracha, of course!! No dinner is complete without sriracha!
I have to include a photo of the sunset. You know I’m obsessed with sunsets.
And finally, I will leave you with a funny story ……
I will occasionally leave notes in my son’s lunchbox or hubby’s lunch bag. I just like the surprise of finding a little love note later. So yesterday morning, I was sitting at my desk and I needed something from my purse. I reached in, only to discover that Luke had left me a love note!!
How sweet, I thought. Then I read the note ….. I couldn’t stop laughing all day …….
“I hope you get the orange off” …. he’s referring to the fact that my hands are a little orange after my spray tan. I had gone after the kids were in bed. So he didn’t even know I had gotten a spray tan. The next morning I was fixing his breakfast when he noticed my hands. Honestly, they aren’t THAT bad. But I will say – it was my first ever spray tan. Now I know to put a little more of the barrier cream on the hands and feet next time. That is, if I go again. I mean, I like the look of the tan, but I did not like the experience. The claustrophobic little capsule and the spraying in the face – it’s enough to traumatize a person. Ok, maybe I’m being a little dramatic. All I could think about before walking in was that episode of ‘Friends’ where Ross forgets to turn. Thankfully, I turned. :)
Question of the Day: Have you done a spray tan before? And what is your favorite flavor of almonds??
