Good evening lovelies! Hope everyone had a great weekend and is now having a nice, relaxing Sunday evening.
Even though I had to work most of it, I still managed to have a pretty good weekend!
Saturday after work B picked me up to go to his parents house for his birthday supper with his family. I love his family so much, and as always it was a blast! Good food and good company – there’s nothing better than that! For his birthday supper he requested a boiled dinner (like always!) which was delish! Definitely one of my comfort foods, but not something I have very often. It’s so salty! I was thirsty all night after eating that. His cousin came for dinner too, and she brought her adorable little boy with her. I think he is only a year and a half, and of course was the centre of attention! No pictures unfortunately, I was too hungry/caught up in visiting and totally forgot to take out my camera!
After dinner we went to Wal-Mart to see what they had for dressers and futons. There is absolutely zero room in my dresser for any of B’s clothes and limited closet space for him. We are trying to find just a basic cheap dresser for him because hopefully by this time next year we will have a whole new bedroom set. We don’t want to spend a fortune on just a temporary thing. A futon on the other hand, we are willing to pay a little more for because we need something sturdy, because it’s going in the spare room and will be used as a couch a lot. It’s mainly going to be Brandon and his friends on it. Cheap metal frames will not cut it
All I really did today was work, but I did manage to get a few pictures!
I have been eating the same oats all week, and I’ve noticed I am actually starting to get excited for breakfast now! It’s easily my favourite meal of the day.
Oats + Peanut Butter (This is the whipped stuff! Yum!) + Chocolate Chips + Banana + Unsweetened Coconut = YUM! I layer my toppings in that exact order, and while it isn’t exactly beautiful, it is so good and filling! I finally have a breakfast that keeps me full until after my first class, which is a big deal because normally I am hungry like an hour after eating!
I also started off my day with a Tazo Chai Latte
I love love love love love my milk frother! It seriously makes all the difference. When the milk isn’t frothed it honestly just doesn’t taste right.
Lunch was spaghetti and was tres ugly so it went unpictured. Plus the lunch room was really busy. Supper may or may not have been (read: definitely was) a slice of pizza from the shop behind my apartment building. I didn’t get home until a little after 7, and was way too lazy to cook supper so I gave in.
I wasn’t too lazy however to make this amazing little recipe!
It’s a single chocolate chip cookie! I got the recipe from Jessica at Domestic Deep Thought.
It was sooo yummy! Just what I was craving, and I love that it kept me from eating a whole batch of cookies.
And yes, that is a cow glass They are my favourite animal (random I know!) and it was given to me a couple years ago. I love it and use it for milk and smoothies – it makes me smile whenever I use it!
Plus – look at the back!
How fun is that?!
That’s it for now, I need to get my beautysleep!
