Lunch + Tag, You're It!

I was so excited for my lunch – I don’t know why, but I’ve been looking forward to it since I packed it this morning.

I finally opened my jar of Cinnamon Raisin pb today, so lunch had to include that:


I put about 1 Tbsp on each slice of bread this morning, topped it with half a sliced banana, and just waited to dig in.


This was so good. I loved all the cinnamon in the pb, and with the banana? I’m definitely going to have this again.

To get some veggies and some more fruit, I had a Super Fruity Salad, which I think is a cousin to the HJ? She is big and beautiful, that’s all I know.


This had:

  • romaine
  • broccoli slaw
  • 1 tomato
  • random 1/2 cup of fruit (kiwi, berries, peach, 1 raspberry)
  • dressing made up of a little olive oil (less than a tsp, probably) raspberry vinegar, and dijon


I used to think pineapple was my favorite salad fruit, but the peach on this was so good! I can’t wait to get super fresh ones from the market this summer.

Apparently, there is a fun little tag game going around and I was tagged by Coco! Here goes  :)


1. Once you are tagged post a picture of where you blog.
2. Feel free to tell us a little about your space, or explain certain items in more detail. Or not.
3. Link back to the original post.
4. Tag five other bloggers to show their blogspots.


This is where most of the blogging is done – on my butt, on the couch, with my feet up on the ottoman. Or as Nate would like to hear: This is where the magic happens.

Look ! You can even see my butt imprint! Impressive, right?


Now for the questions:

What are you wearing right now?

Pink top, khaki pants with a strawberry stain I just noticed, and snakeskin print flats.

What’s the last thing you read/are currently reading?

French Pressed by Cleo Coyle; now reading Super Natural Cooking by Heidi Swanson

Do you nap a lot?

No, but I wish I did! I don’t think my boss would be too happy about it. Nick and I do like taking Sunday afternoon naps – they’re the best!

Who was the last person you hugged?

What’s your current obsession/addiction?
reading! I just finished my Masters in December, so I started a pile of books for me to read once I was done and homework was over. I’m finally starting to get through them and I love it.

What’s for dinner?
tonight? Leftovers of some kind.
What was the last thing you bought?
milk + headbands

What are you listening to right now?
the silence in my office

If you could have a superpower what would it be?

To Fly! Then I could go wherever I wanted.

What is your favorite weather and why?

Fall. I love all the leaves changing here, and being perfectly comfy in jeans, a long sleeved t, and flip flops. Plus, it’s college football season!!!

What time do you usually wake up?

5:30-6 am.

What is your most challenging goal right now?

Figuring out how to balance my life without a program or rules – there will be more on this later  :)

Favorite pair of shoes that you keep going back to over and over again even though you have a zillion others?

My snakeskin flats and black sparkly flip flops that should probably be in the trash by now!

Name one thing you can’t live without?

My family.

What time is bed time?
anywhere between 9:30 – 12, depending on the night.

If there was one place you could be right now where would it be?

Somewhere in Europe – I’ve never been!
