hey friends! my boss gave me tickets to go to the jazz game tonight. it’s the first home game of the season. while i despise football, i LOVE basketball! i am excited that we get to go see the game. hope they do better than they did against denver last night!
i had to share my breakfast & lunch with you guys solely because i purchased a cute halloween placemat. i know, how dweeby does that make me? that’s ok, no shame.
a story about my breakfast. i got to work, put my oatmeal to cook on the stove as i normally do, went up to my office and then completely forgot about my oats on the stove. about 15 minutes later i was thinking about how hungry i was.. and then a light bulb clicked on. DING!
my oats are still on the stove!
so i RAN downstairs, only to smell the scorched oats. i cleaned the pot, apologized profusely to my co-workers and put another batch on to cook. a girl’s gotta eat.
i went back upstairs and my boss called me into his office to discuss some things, including aforementioned jazz tickets. before i knew it, i realized that i had, ONCE AGAIN, forgotten about my oats cooking on the stove.
i ran downstairs AGAIN and, well, you know the drill. put another pot on and STAYED downstairs..
finally, third time’s a charm.
vanilla protein oats topped with justin’s chocolate hazelnut butter.
after all, today is national chocolate day!
lunch was leftover chicken puffs & broccoli.
guys! chicken puffs are the best. i can’t believe i went so long without them in my life!
i bet you are super scared by my placemat. no? marshall said i can only buy halloween decorations that are scary, not cute. i don’t think he would agree that the placemat fits the bill, but it’s cute.. and i LIKE cute.. so i bought it anyway.
after work, i did susan’s lead legs lower body workout. you guys have to try it! it’s killer and i can’t wait to have to be pushed around in a wheelchair tomorrow because my legs will be so sore.
oh, i bet you all want to know the winner of the real simple magazine subscription giveaway!
