I just wanted you to know that since it's Friday and King Friday was adorable.
I am currently...
....eating spicy pumpkin oatmeal every single day for lunch! I use plain rolled oats and mix in some cinnamon and red pepper flakes and top it with lots of pumpkin. Mmmm, so good!
...making cupcakes for our friends, Erik and Liz's annual end of summer bash. I'm thinking chocolate cake with caramel buttercream topped with toasted coconut. Man, do I love me some coconut.
...on my To Do list cleaning out the garage! Our house is feeling so simple and light but that garage....woof.
...listening to Red Hands by Walk Off the Earth on repeat. Ugh, I love it so hard. It makes me want to dance in the street like a crazy hippie. Maybe I will later...(don't worry I'll watch for cars).
...reading The Hunger Games. I know, I know. How did I not read this forever ago? I started it some months ago but then got distracted. I'm eating them up now though. Also, fun fact, when the books first came out (before I saw the movie obviously) I thought they were about werewolves so I wouldn't read them.
...watching the last season of The Biggest Loser in anticipation of the upcoming season (come quickly October!). Danni Allen is so inspiring, watching her journey is super motivational. I've also been watching Ugly Betty while I'm on the treadmill (I'm doing the Couch 2 5K program). I forgot how funny and adorable and wonderful that show is. I love you, Betty.
...loving breakfast smoothies! Who knew? I was never a smoothie drinker but I love how convenient it is and I keep 'em chock full of nutrients and low on sugar. This week I've been chugging what I call Power Green smoothies. It's 2 handfuls of spinach, 1 cup of unsweetened almond milk, a sprinkle of cinnamon, 1 tablespoon ground flaxseed, 1 tablespoon chia seeds, and 1 teaspoon of spirulina powder.
...thankful for my husband who has been working crazy overtime all month. He is such a great provider and works his tuchus off.
Have a great weekend!
