This morning I slept in a bit. I don’t have many chances during the week to actually sleep so I try and take advantage when I can. As I said last night, this very well may be the last Thursday I have off for a while so I needed to make it count. I had so much to do!
I fired up the Keurig and consulted my to do list.
Since there was a lot going on, I actually mapped out my day plan separately to be even more organized. First up was breakfast. I made a simple, delicious frittata that held me over for a long time! I have the recipe post in the works.
I served it along side a piece of toasted rosemary bread I found in the freezer.
After getting a few things done, I trekked up 40min to hit up Trader Joes and Whole Foods. I was really surprised to find that I got about 78% of my list complete at Trader Joes! I actually contemplating NOT going to Whole Foods but I love to food shop and I was there anyway.
I did get hungry though and snacked on a Greens Bar in the car.
I’ll admit. For a while I had big plans to go on a shopping spree for myself to get some new clothes and things that I wanted. I had gotten my tax return in recently so I figured it would be ok. After realizing that I will be losing 5 hours per week at work and am unable to make them up, I re-evaluated my list and will make do with what I have for now.
However, I did end up having a mini spree . . .
Tea Tree Oil Face Wash
Pink Himalayan Sea Salt
Peppermint Dr. Bronners (on sale for $9!)
I needed one, and this one is made from recycled yogurt cups! I thought that was pretty cool and I didn’t feel like making another stop to a drugstore to just get one so it worked out.
The rest of my day will be spent working on blog and business stuff and heading over to my parents to watch our Thursday night line up, but before I go . . .
What do you think about the Top Chef All Stars win last night?
I’m undecided. I kind of wanted Mike to win because he was the TRUE underdog and came back with a vengeance, and he’s from NJ. But Rich has been consistent and set a goal for himself to win and achieved it. I just have a problem with him worrying so much and always thinking he’s not confident and going to lose when he KNOWS he’s going to win . . . Share your pick in the comments!
