Good morning and happy Saturday!!
Aren’t Saturday mornings just a beautiful thing? I am still curled up under my covers in my bed relaxing while the sun shines in my window. Could it get any better on a winter day?
I had quite the productive and enjoyable day yesterday! It was long, which made sleeping in that much better for me today! And for those of you wondering, my “sleeping in” was 8:00am !
But, let’s back it up to my day yesterday.
Yesterday’s breakfast was a mighty good one! I had a left over cookie butter jar, which, in my case, is equal to all the peanut butter jars out there! (I am really strange in that I actually can’t stand peanut butter ) So what did I make? Well! Overnight oats in a jar for sure!
In it went:
- 1/3 cup Quick oats
- 1/3 cup vanilla Almond Milk
- 1/2 Tbsp chia seeds
- 1/2 Tbsp Flax seed meal
- 1/2 banana
- Shake of cinnamon
- 1/2 packet of Stevia raw
- few drops of vanilla
Oh man, was it good! Wish I had an endless supply of Cookie Butter jars with just enough left inside to make this every.single.day. No exaggeration.
I also enjoyed a Chocolate Chip Clif Z Kid Bar yesterday. I mean, who says they are just for kids?! Perfect size and too delicious to pass up!
I actually subbed in the same classroom that I mentioned had the iPads, which was great because I knew the expectations and the schedule for the day. Made for a fabulous Friday!
Knowing that I was meeting my cousin, Jenn, for dinner last night, and that I also had errands to do in the area, I just headed to the stores after school! Apparently, my phone charger likes to be temperamental and choose when it wants to work, and when it wants to leave me hanging high and dry. Like yesterday. Like when I left for work and saw it had 31% on it still. Really? So off to the Genius Bar I went!
They are so nice and friendly in there. I told him my problem, and he easily swapped it out and gave me a new one!
Rather than spending my time at the mall and spending money I shouldn’t be, I headed to one of my other favorite places!
Jareds! Aaron bought my engagement ring at Jared’s and we have loved their service ever since. There is one sales associate, Andrea, who is so wonderful to us and always looking out making sure we find what we want and get good deals! We had looked at wedding bands, but had no thoughts of buying it soon. Until Andrea called on Thursday. Turns out my ring was sold out of the showcase and would take 71 days to come in again. What? 71 days? Well, this girl right here was not waiting any longer! I went in and ordered it! Not having any chance of not coming in! Jared’s also has the best hot chocolate ever. Of course I had to get some!
What better way to drink hot chocolate than with diamonds in the background?? They are a girl’s best friend, after all!
I had a quick trip to Office Depot to make, decided that when I get my own classroom, I
want need this.
Who wouldn’t want it!
This led me to my dinner with Jenn! It was such a great time catching up with her! We haven’t had family functions for a while to see each other, and knew it would be some time before we would again, so this was perfect (and fit into our busy lives)! We headed to TGI Friday’s (always a winner in my book!) and I ordered the Cajun Chicken and Shrimp.
Definitely delicious and will be ordered again. Even have leftovers for lunch today!
I came home real fast, changed, and headed out to have a night out with friends! It was a perfect way to end both a busy and fantastic day, and a long week! Now I’m off to complete a workout and enjoy the rest of my day! Hope you do the same! If you got hit with the storm, I really hope you are staying safe and don’t have too much damage!
Make it a great day today, my friends!
