Happy Friday! We’re almost to the weekend! Here’s a bunch of random things from this week:
Current obsession: salads
I go back and forth between being obsessed with certain foods and then completely avoiding them. Oatmeal and smoothies fall into this category. Right now I’m especially obsessed with salads and have been eating them every day.
Here’s an especially tasty salad I made this week, which included 2 things I loooove: avocado and smoked salmon. I realized the avocado was buried under the smokes salmon but I promise you that it was good.
Jumping ship on my pumpkin greek yogurt
If you read here then you know I haven’t been able to stop eating the Chobani Pumpkin Spice Yogurt. They.are.so.good.
But nutritionally, I felt like the yogurt alone was not really adequate for breakfast (it has 130 calories and 12 g protein) and sometimes I don’t feel like trying to pair it with an additional breakfast item. I think a yogurt this size works better as a snack if you’re going to eat it by itself.
I picked up this pumpkin greek yogurt from Trader Joe’s. It’s a larger portion size than the Chobani yogurt and has 190 calories / 18 grams of protein. It’s not quite as flavorful as the Chobani and has a little bit more sugar, but I appreciate the added calories and protein. I have been gravitating towards smaller breakfasts lately since I’m not currently working out, so it’s nice to explore what’s out there.
I’m in love with these
I was in Macy’s the other day and fell in love with these Mikasa Party Collection wine and champagne glasses!
I thought the gold designs were so festive and pretty. I just keep thinking about how great the gold would look against a glass full of a nice cabernet sauvignon I also love stemless wine glasses because the dishwasher in our apartment is notorious for breaking the stems off of wine glasses. And ain’t nobody got time to hand wash those.
Happy 6th Bday to Beamer
Beams’ birthday was on Wednesday and I can’t believe he’s 6 already! I feel like he’s just a puppy since he is so much more ‘youthful’ than Lily.
I gave him lots of pets and snuggles, and we went for an especially long birthday walk. I wish I had a good picture of me with him, but Beamer’s most hated activity ever is posing for selfies.
What are you up to this weekend? I am working but am hoping I will get to sleep in a bit on Sunday and finish up some Christmas shopping.
Have you started or finished your holiday shopping?
