Finally {Getting Ready} Friday

Hey guys!

I hope you are all having a fantastic Friday!

I took the today off of work so I could get everything together for my trip to Cali tomorrow….so many errands to run and things to do before I leave! It’s so hard to believe that by this time tomorrow, I’ll be on the other side of the country!

This morning started out perfectly…I woke up on my own (love it when I don’t have to wake up to the alarm) after a great night’s sleep, threw down a date and some PB, grabbed my new friend, and hit the pavement!

I was actually aiming for 8 miles this morning, but around the 5.5 mark, I knew I just wasn’t feeling it…I blame the weather…

Humidity at 8am > Humidity at 5am :-/

After my run, I came home and whipped up a quick and easy breakfast that featured my two new loves AND helped me clear out another shelf in the fridge! Project “eat all the perishables” is almost complete! 😉

Greek yogurt mixed with protein powder and topped with banana slices, cinnamon, kamut puffs, granola, and ooey gooey melted Heaven peanut butter!

Oh and that granola isn’t just any granola.

It’s Erin Baker’s Peanut Butter Granola! I won some in a giveaway hosted by the lovely Averie a couple of weeks ago and I am totally addicted now! Definitely ordering a tub…or ten when I get back from my trip!

Along with breakfast, I enjoyed a HUGE cup of coffee while catching up on some blog reading…wait, didn’t I say I had errands to run?

Meh, there’s ALWAYS time for a little A to the M relaxation! 😉

Mr. Coffee says I had THREE cups this morning…but if it all fits in my mug, we can just say I had ONE, right?

So yeah, around noonish, I finally decided to get my butt into gear and actually get some stuff done!

Four hours later, I return home with this!


Because shorts and tanks aren’t gonna cut it next week…

Ohhh, how nice not to see 90+ temperatures with heat indexes of a bajillion!


The perfect carry-on bag!

I didn’t want to get any grief at the airport trying to take a purse AND a laptop bag on the plane so I set out on a mission to find one to do both…


TJ Maxx…$19.99!

And Mabel the Mac Book fits nicely with plenty of room to spare!

Now I just have to finish with this:

So I can fill this:

And since I’m the world’s worst procrastinator, I’ll probably still be up folding laundry and debating over which shoes to take until the wee hours of the morning…

Because I already made plans to go out with a friend for dinner tonight…

Hey, I don’t have any food, remember? 😉

Plus it’s Korean BBQ…and there’s ALWAYS time for Korean BBQ!

Any big plans for the weekend?

Are you a procrastinator when it comes to packing for a trip?
