Oooh…happy Friday!! Thank you so much for all of your vitamin suggestions! Per your recommendations, I think I’m going to embrace my inner 5-year-old and try out the gummy ones. 🙂
I feel like the first week back after vacation can be brutal, you know what I mean? Although, to be perfectly honest, I did get sent home Monday due to no power and left yesterday because Indiana decided to become the North Pole for a day. Details. 🙂
For breakfast today, I took a cue from Kristin and had a bowl of good old-fashioned cereal! Behold the magic puffins:
Have you tried these? I think I got them at Meijer. They’re resminiscent of Capn Crunch (my absolute fave), but without all the sugar! They taste perfectly sweet, and the box says they’re good for you, and boxes don’t lie:
Great taste without compromise. Catchy, no? Plus they only have 5 grams of sugar per 3/4 cup serving! And the best part…you can get them in peanut butter flavor, too! Puffins, you have officially won my heart. Congrats!
Fun fact about me: I used to eat an absolutely unnatural amount of cereal in college. I would eat it for breakfast, sometimes lunch, and sometimes dinner…and sometimes stand around in the kitchen at night in my sorority and just…eat cereal.
Before you judge me, have YOU tried sorority food? I got SO addicted to afore mentioned Capn Crunch AND SmartStart (don’t let the title fool you! It’s not a smart start to your day at all, unless you want to sugar crash at 10:30am).
Mmmm….crunchy cereal goodness.
Anyway, my days of the cereal obsession have passed, and now I can enjoy it in normal intervals like a normal person. And along with my puffins, I had a piece of toasted sprouted rye toast with almond butter and a clementine:
Moving on to lunch: I packed my yummy turkey/swiss/hummus/spinach arnold thins combo again:
Side note: in the food blogging world, Greek yogurt is like the demigoddesss of all foods, and she reigns supreme over all lowly non-Greek yogurts. However, I tried somewhat desperately to make myself like it, and realized that I actually CANNOT STAND it. So I quit buying it. I know it’s good for you, but to me if just tasted like eating a big tub of fat-free sour cream.
Sooo…are you ready for a new category of the blog? Sure you are! So I introduce to you…Fun Fashion Friday! If you know me, you know I really like clothes and trying on clothes and buying clothes. And shoes, and accessories…
And what better day to think about shopping than Friday? This isn’t my payday, sad face, but Friday still leads into Saturday, which oftentimes, I spend shopping (or at least window shopping.) SO for now I’ll just give you a quick list of my favorite Web sites for great deals:
1. Delias.com—I know you got these catalogues in, ahem, high school like I did, but I actually love this store for end-of-season clearances. And their jeans are the best; they feel like designer denim, but they’re around $40! They’re actually my favorite pair I own.
2. Zappos.com—a few of you mentioned this when I was talking about shoes the other day…they have about 47 billion pairs of shoes, and free shipping! You can find some great prices too.
3. Nordstrom.com—I know this store can be pricey, but it’s my hands-down favorite place to buy purses. Check out the B.P. section and they’re a lot cheaper…they’re just very unique and fun!
I’m off to work….and then, darn it, I might have to go shopping. Hmmm. Have a great Friday!!
What’s your favorite thing to do on a Friday night?
