Instead of going to the gym bright and early, I chose sleep and the comfort of my bed on a Saturday morning.
After having stovetop oats with banana, various spices, chia seeds and peanut butter, I showered and got ready to head out of the house.
I went to Starbucks to meet my friends, but found no one there. After waiting a couple of minutes and not having reached anyone by phone, I left and went to Ulta to shop. Out walked my friend Kim and she was surprised to see me. Apparently she texted everyone about our meet up, but you see, I don’t receive texts. They are literally blocked from my phone and my mom’s (we share a plan) and I like it that way because we used to receive too many junk texts and paid for them.
I picked up two Aveeno products for a mere $6 something with tax (I saved $6 by combining a $5 off Ulta coupon and a $1 off manufacturer’s coupon). I bought exfoliating body wash (for sunless tanning purposes) and their moisturizing and volumizing shampoo, which Kim highly recommended and which I wanted to buy anyway because I loved the samples of that shampoo I used last summer.
Kim and I went back to Starbucks and I got an iced coffee, which I am now addicted to since it’s getting warmer out. We parted ways and I was off to the Brownberry outlet to get various breads.
After running a few other errands, I went to my parents’ house out in the country. In the first couple of minutes I was there, I managed to freeze my mom’s kindle and had to restart the thing with my husband’s help. I finally helped my mom with a few things on the kindle and then cleaned up their computer by removing some programs.
I also ate lunch there–a ham and cheese sandwich on a roll, a pineapple chobani and a sprite.
I stopped at a Wal-mart on the way back home and while I usually don’t like to patronize them for my groceries, I really didn’t feel like going back out to a grocery store once I got home. I found strawberries for $1 and Stonyfield yogurt cheap. Surprisingly, I also walked away with some Danskin shorts, a tank top and a t-shirt, all from the Danskin Active line. I recommend it if you are looking for reasonably priced workout wear that also fits nicely.
After a 20 minute walk with Craig, I decided that was all the exercise I would get for the day because I needed to make dinner, meditate and do other things around the house.
I pressed some tofu and ate Chobani vanilla yogurt with cocoa granola, strawberries and blueberries while I waited.
I dug out our George Foreman grill and grilled tofu and asparagus on it for the first time.
I really liked how firm the tofu got by grilling it and now I’ll probably always want to make it this way!
I topped it with Frank’s Red Hot and paired my dinner with a Fat Tire New Belgium beer.
Dessert was a few bites of pumpkin pie. My mom made some today and gave me a few pieces to bring home. Aaah, I missed the taste of pumpkin! Why do we only seem to eat it in the fall?
Well, this post got a bit long and I want to go read some blogs.
It’s move night in our house, but unfortunately, I don’t like the selection: District 9. Craig is watching it while I blog and watch it off and on. Not a science fiction kind of girl. Well, I am picky about my science fiction I guess.
