I’m a bad blogger and am just posting for the first time today at 4:30 in the afternoon! However, I DID post last night at 1 a.m. so that should make up for it. 😉
It doesn’t seem like Halloween to me….maybe it’s because I’m on my own and far from home…or not in school anymore…I’m not sure. Halloween was always so much fun when I was in college (we would go to, like, 5 Halloween parties wearing different costumes for each) and now I just feel OLD! Boo!
Anyways, I celebrated by having pumpkin oat bran this morning
I used 1/2 cup oat bran, 1/2 cup milk, 1 cup water, 1/2 cup pumpkin, almond butter and jelly! 🙂
Oh, and just to clarify—I did NOT eat a raw sweet potato yesterday!!!!! I just took the picture before I stuck it in the microwave to cook it. I got a kick out of reading everyone’s concerned comments…
I also had coffee—
And SuperFood! 🙂
Ran a quick errand for work and then set out on the daily adventure…..destination: Nordstroms. However, I got incredibly lost and ended up (how ironic) at Whole Foods down in Marin county. It just so happened it was 12:30 and I was starving so, like a starving lost child, I made my way into the store and filled up on the salad bar!!!
Just seeing that gorgeous picture makes me want to eat it again!!! There was a mix of salads with beans, hummus, feta cheese and veggies. SO good.
Double crack (literally….this was a tall nonfat mocha with 2 shots of espresso)
Thank you, Patrick!!! My friend sent me a Starbucks gift card in an aaaamazing care package and I put it to good use. Now I am caffeinated and ready to conquer Halloween.
So, I did finally find the shopping center that I was searching for. I got two tops from banana republic because they were both on sale from $60 to $13, if you can believe that. I’m a huge discount shopping (hello, Ross and tj maxx!) and have nooo winter clothes so I’m trying to slowly but surely build my cold weather closet up in time for winter.
I’m not sure what’s on tap for tonight. I honestly just remembered to buy candy…like 30 minutes ago. I know a lot of you are probably thinking of healthy trick or treat ideas but hey…it’s one day out of the year. I stick with the traditional gummi bears and mini chocolate bars. It’s crazy! 😉 There’s a good chance I may just end up staying home and handing out candy but there’s also a chance of going out to dinner at Dry Creek Kitchen. Who knows. I’ll keep you posted!
