Spoiled Plans

I had grand plans last night to make a new recipe just for our lunches this week.

What did I do instead?

Watched How I Met Your Mother on the couch with Nick and fell asleep until a phone call from my mom and sister woke me up at 9 pm.

How old am I? I can’t even stay awake past 9 if I’m on the couch.

At least the phone call got me up long enough to pull something together for lunch today, even if it wasn’t my original plan.

I scraped that huge tub of Sabra to get the last of our hummus out for a wrap today:


Sabra, avocado, thinly shaved carrot, and romaine.

Plus some pretzels I won in a giveaway – this was my first time trying this brand.


Um…gross. They didn’t taste like pretzels, and there was no salt at all! I ate one and threw the bag away. I really wanted to like them, because I was in the mood for pretzels, but these were just not good. :(

At least my clementine was sweet.


Nick and I to run a few errands at lunch, so I picked up a treat to finish off my lunch on a good note.


Cherry Cinnamon Scone – yum.


I do plan on making that recipe tonight so we can have it tomorrow!!! It’s on my list of things to do today…let’s hope I don’t fall asleep at 7 or something ridiculous.

What time do you go to bed?

And do you have to make lists every day? I do. I write down everything I need to do that day just so I can cross stuff off…unless I sleep through them. Oops!



  1. Too funny – I thought the scone was a piece of pizza at first! I thought the cherries were little pieces of pepperoni and saw what I think is cinnamon as sausage… Still looks pretty great now that I know what it actually is. ;)

    I’m on a mission to start getting more sleep. I typically go to bed between 11pm-12am, but I would love it if I could up that to be between 10pm-11pm. We’ll see.

  2. That scone looks awesome!
    Lights out at 10:30, and falling asleep by 11 in this room :-)

  3. Too funny…I thought the scone was pizza too! Try to get to bed by 10:30p. Usually get home from Bikram a little after 8 so it’s a challenge getting everything done before that, but when my head hits the pillow I am out cold!

  4. Ummm I fall asleep at like 8:30! I am old, too. I also make lists. ALL THE TIME!

  5. I go to bed around 11 p.m. I feel like I stay up late compared to other bloggers. Maybe that’s why I feel so crappy in the AM.

    I make short lists :)

  6. I try to get in bed between 9 and 9:30 so I can do a few word puzzles to help me relax before I fall asleep. I usually miss the mark by at least an hour though.

    I love to make lists, but it more so I don’t forget to do them then for the sense of accomplishment when I cross something off.

  7. The only list I make is a grocery list. Speaking of which how do you do your meal planning? I’ve been using the WeightWatchers site, however, I’m thinking of discontinuing it. I’m open to new ideas for meal planning and grocery shopping.

  8. I make lists within lists — love lists! I try to go to bed by 10 but lately it has been 11 or 12.

  9. Scones… mmm….scrumptious! I go to bed at around 11. I have always been a night person and love the quite hours to get things done. And I do make lists… there is no better feeling than crossing things off!

  10. I heart lists. I usually make them in my planner, but I also make them at work on post-its. During the week, I tend to go to bed anywhere between 10pm-12am.

  11. Like the first commenter I thought your scone was pizza ;-)

    I make lists constantly. I would be lost and forget to do thing without them.

    I have a hard time sleeping sometimes so I can fall asleep early some days and really late others.

  12. hahaha, I am glad I am not the only one who thought that was pizza at first!

    I go to bed between 8 and 10 and usually get up between 4:30 and 6.

  13. my bed time very much varies. I can go to bed at 9. or midnight! depends what I need to be up for the next day.

  14. At first I thought that scone was a slice of pizza – haha! Looks good either way! HIMYM trumps everything, even new recipe development ;)

  15. So I was catching up on some posts that I’ve missed and I realized that you take the most amazing pictures. If you’ve posted this before, please don’t yell at me :( lol, but what kind of camera do you use? I’m looking into getting a new and I must look into whatever is taking these gorgeous pictures.

    • Aw, thanks! Definitely more from the camera than from me, but I do like my little camera.

      I have a Canon PowerShot SX110- it’s great! A good camera that I can still carry in my purse, which is nice.

  16. Pretzels are my crack – I am not capable of eating just one serving!

    We usually go to bed around 10:30, but watch t.v. until 11:00 – I fall asleep at 11:01 and my husband stays up til midnight usually!

  17. Love your hummus wrap. I thought your scone was an omelet hehe. It sounds delicious! I usually go to bed around 11 or 12. I always feel tired in the morning no matter what.

  18. I totally thought that scone was a piece of pizza.

    During the week I have a hard time staying up past 10. Especially if I’m on the couch and not moving around.

  19. I go to bed early. 9 or 10! hahaha I’m an old woman.

  20. i go to sleep at like 9, or even..8:30.


    that scone looks tastY! most scones i come into contact with are dry hockey pucks!
    (i do adore watching hockey tho)

    mm. not sure on the list thing. sometimes i do!

  21. I am the list queen. I have actually been known to make a list of the lists I needed to make! :)


  22. Haha yay! You got my box FINALLY! Im sorry you were not a fan of them either! Some people love them, not us!

  23. What a yummy looking scone! I need more scones in my life.

  24. Sorry you didn’t like the pretzels. I make lists constantly. Have to.

  25. I’m usually out by 8:30. You’re not alone.
