When I don't take pictures of my breakfast, I eat PopTarts. At first, it was the the organic PopTarts from Trader Joe's, but now I have stooped to the generic-not-organic-not-whole-wheat-ones. I need an intervention.
However, Margaret loves them and they (somehow?) keep me full until lunch.
When I remember about my 9:00 meeting with a client while pulling out of my driveway at 8:40, my usual 30 minute drive to work miraculously turns into 20 minutes. I also learned that my Terrain can off road just fine because my new neighbors had their cars' parked in the middle of the street(?). After I honked a few times I drove through their grass to get to work. Crazed, late, pregnant women who just drank their one cup of coffee for the day will do anything. I hope I made a good first impression.
When I eat grapes and cottage cheese for lunch most days of the week I eventually get sick of them. I didn't know it was possible, but after 20+ meals of the same combo, I found I need to give it a break. Moving on to pineapple and cottage cheese now...
When I watched this week's episode of The Parenthood I ugly-cried.
Actually, it was more of an hysterical sob. I literally couldn't catch my breath. If someone would have come to my house he/she would have thought the worst. Don't watch it. But do watch it, because it is such a good show.
When I meet up with my friends from high school, I am soooo happy.
Sarah (bottom left, who is doing her residency in North Carolina and who I visited a few months ago) is in town for this week and we all met up last night. Even though our conversations have changed from boys, shopping, and homework, to parenting, work-work, and maybe still a little boys and a little shopping, the dynamic still feels the same. Seeing these girls fills my heart.
When I open birthday presents I am so excited.
Sarah gave me the cutest measuring cups
and little bowls. When I got home and showed Dan, I told him that I was going to use these for my ice cream. He laughed and asked if I was going to use all 4 at once. Whatever. My ice cream serving size may need a reality check and these bowls will help.
Thought for the day
Question for the day
What is your favorite Pop Tart flavor? I have mostly stuck with brown sugar and cinnamon, but I saw pumpkin pie at the store the other day and almost bought them.
Are you still friends with your friends from high school? I know a lot of times people lose touch with high school friends - and I have with some, but feel blessed to still be close with a few.
