Happy Friday punkins!
Can I still call you guys punkins if it’s not fall? Hmm, winter squashies just doesn’t have the same ring to it 😉
So since I had the day off today, I was sure to kick it off in as productive a way as possible…and you know what? It just keeps getting better and better!
The morning started with this bowl of deliciousness:
Peanut flour oats with strawberry jam, a small banana, and chia seeds
And the peanut flour had only been in my possession for oh, about 5 minutes before this bowl was made, photographed, and devoured!
I’ve been waiting ALL week to receive my order from netrition.com and it finally came in!
I love shopping with them…can’t beat $4.95 flat rate shipping!
*And no, they didn’t pay me to advertise for them…they don’t even know who I am*
After my oats and a cup of coffee, I got into crazy lady cleaning mode! Anyone else tend to get a burst of energy right after breakfast? I always do after a bowl of whole grains and I LOVE it when it happens on the weekend ’cause I always get a crap-ton of stuff DONE!
After three hours of total house clean-down, it was time for a little snack:
But not just any snack…my old faithful PRE-RUN snack!
After all that cleaning, can you believe I still had the itch to go running? In 40 degree weather?? I know…I must be crazy!
But it was a CRAZY GOOD run!
I was only shooting for 5 miles, but when I realized that I was only about a half mile away from that, I just knew I wasn’t done yet. I went back and forth from listening to The Ting Tings station that I have on Pandora to just having silence and time with my thoughts…nothing but the sound of my breathing and the Vibrams hitting the pavement (well, that and my near-constant sniffling…gotta love the cold!)
After I got home and took a super hot shower (had to do something to get the feeling back in my hands…ugh, I’m such a pansy), I needed food and I needed food NOW!
Thank God it only takes veggies about 5 minutes to saute!
Behold my pile of veggies topped with veggie burger (yep, same ones from all week) and a perrrrrfectly drippy fried egg!
After the pic I covered it in a blanket of nooch and more red pepper flakes!
Mmm, spicy cheezy deliciousness!
While I was eating, I checked Twitter and it totally made my day when I saw this tweet from Chobani!
Yep, looks like the burgs made it to Pinterest…they are officially famous! 😉
Oh, and speaking of Twitter, I love that Missy took the time to inform me of a VERY important holiday tomorrow…
Don’t worry, you didn’t forget about Mother’s day or anything…it’s more important than THAT (just kidding…hi, mom!)
Pancakes aren’t just for Sunday people! Who’s gonna celebrate with me?!
And finally, I brushed my hair!
I rarely straighten my hair these days since it takes so long, but when I curl it, I can’t get a comb through it to save my life…and well, today I just felt the urge to get out the hairbrush!
Check out how LONG it’s gotten!
Hmm, maybe I should do pig-tails? 😉
Now I’m just sitting around relaxing and waiting for BB to get off work. We’re going over to my parent’s house for dinner tonight and my mom is making one of my favorite’s for dinner…
Mmm, mmm, MMM! Can’t wait!
How was your Friday? Any exciting plans for the weekend?
