Dreary Day

I enjoyed hearing who you liked better between N’SYNC and BSB, although I was reminded of Hanson!

Oh, my little sister and I were so obsessed with them! I remember we had an entire binder just filled with pictures we had torn out of magazines and a concert video tape that we used to watch, over and over.

The funny thing is…I don’t listen to their normal cds anymore, but their Christmas cd they put out is one of my family’s favorites! My little sister got a new copy of it for my mom just a few years ago.

I’ve been busy this morning! Work is making the day tick by and I was more than ready for lunch.


I made another pear + brie + blue cheese dijon mustard sandwich today.


I wish I always had these ingredients – the mix of the brie and that tangy dijon and sweet pear is so good between the crispy bread!


Plus a salad on the side with some romaine,  broccoli, the rest of the pear half, some craisins and walnuts and a dressing made up of 1 tsp olive oil, 1/2 tsp blue cheese dijon mustard and 1/2 tsp blackberry pear balsamic vinegar (both from Made in Napa Valley!).

Today is so dreary! It’s been raining most of the morning and is just dull and gray outside.

I tried to help the gray mood by trying some new tea –


I really liked it, but I have no idea what flavor it is. It doesn’t say on the bags, and I won it in a blog giveaway. It’s kind of sweet + licoricy, and I loved it!

What was the best concert you’ve ever been to?

The first?

Not N’Sync

I had a funny dream last night – probably one of the strangest dreams I’ve had in a while.

In my dream, I was at an amusement park with a bunch of bloggers I met in San Francisco a few weeks ago and N’SYNC. Weird, right?

Apparently, I was also married to J.C., which is weird enough because when I was listening to N’SYNC back in the day, I was totally a Justin girl.

Anyway – even though we were married, J.C. and I couldn’t hang out at all in public because he always needed to look single or something, so I ended up walking around the park with Kelly from The Pink Apron and talking about shoes.

Of course, I wanted to find out what happened in the dream, so I ended up turning off my alarm clock and Nick never set his for today so I woke up late again.

Then Roxy decided to do an encore of last Monday morning…and it’s gray and gloomy and rainy. And I feel a headache starting.

It seems as though Monday is trying to sabotage me today, but I’m going to fight it!


First, with a good breakfast.


Pumpkin oats, actually.

  • 1/2 cup oats, 1 cup water, pinch salt
  • 1/2 banana, sliced
  • cinnamon!
  • 1/4 cup pumpkin
  • 1 Tbsp crunchy pb
  • 1 Tbsp dark chocolate chips


If K starts almost every morning with Reese Oats, I figured I would try, too.

Even though it’s nasty and rainy and Monday…I’m going to have a good day!


Funniest dream you’ve had?

Or an easier question? N’SYNC or Backstreet Boys?

Hollow Leg

I am still hungry! I don’t know what’s going on today, but nothing is filling me up. I’m about to make some popcorn to have as a snack tonight so my stomach will quit rumbling.

Isn’t it so weird to be so hungry some days?

While working on laundry this afternoon, I had my last mini strawberry Oikos yogurt with some trail mix.


Roxy started bugging me while I was eating this because she loves yogurt. She kept trying to grab the spoon and stick her face in the container before I was even finished!

Once I ate everything, she got to have the last bit around the inside of the container. I wanted to get a picture of her with her entire face in the yogurt cup, but I couldn’t get to my camera fast enough. It was so funny to watch.

She licked it clean – it looked like there had never been any yogurt in there at all.

Nick stopped working on the dresser a bit ago so we could eat dinner.


We made some more quesadillas with the leftover roasted sweet potatoes and beans. I put a little colby + pepperjack in mine tonight.


And I finally had some veggies today! Lettuce, corn, avocado and salsa on the side.


I love the roasted sweet potatoes in the quesadilla – it gives just enough sweetness to counteract the spicy seasonings + salsa.

I’ve got all the laundry done, folded, and put away and clean sheets on the bed! That’s my favorite part about Sunday nights – getting into bed with fresh sheets.


I’ve got to get something to eat. And of course I want ice cream and we don’t have any :\  Oh well, I’ll find something!


Sugar and Spice

Yesterday was so much fun! We watched football, had good food, and hung out with friends – one of the best ways to spend a Saturday  :)

We ended up not getting home until around 10 last night, but it was fun. And we won!

We had snack-type foods yesterday (meatballs, chicken wing dip, chips, veggies, freshly smoked salmon, pumpkin dip, cookies) and never really had a real lunch or dinner, so I was (and still am!) pretty hungry today.

Nick had to do sound at church this morning, so we left early and just planned on getting some breakfast and coffee at Panera.


I got their gingerbread bagel (yum) with some reduced fat cream cheese and a cup of coffee.


The bagel was awesome, but this did not fill me up at all! I’m so used to having bigger breakfasts, and a sweet bagel just will not hold me for very long. I wanted a breakfast sandwich, but I was so disappointed in the last one I got here that I just went with a bagel.

We were planning on coming home for lunch today, but then I heard someone at church talking about Thai food and lunch plans changed quickly  :)


I got the drunken noodles with tofu – soo spicy! I loved it and it made my lips burn. I ate about half of this and brought some of it home so Nick can have leftovers for lunch tomorrow. I’m not sure how they cook their tofu, but it had the best texture – not like anything I’ve had before.

And since I’m a bottomless pit today, I just had some pineapple, too.


Nick’s asleep on the couch, and I’m about to get started on laundry. There may be a nap for me, too.

It’s a gray and chilly day here, which means it’s a good day for getting in my sweatpants.


Do you like Thai food? Favorite dish?
