Oh Dear Pumpkin,
I know you’ve been sitting so patiently in that lazy susan, just waiting for a little attention.
Don’t you worry. Even though it’s been a while since we last met, it doesn’t mean that I have thought of you any less. But now, after long months of waiting, it is now time for us to reunite. Because if I wait any longer, I may go crazy and eat your whole can at once. And that would not be good. So let’s make a go for it…
They’re BAAAAACK!! PUMPKIN OATS!
In the mix:
- 1/3 cup oats
- 1/3 cup vanilla almond milk
- 1/3 cup water
- 1/2 mashed banana
- HEAPING 1/3 cup pumpkin
- Golden raisins
- Cinnamon & pumpkin pie spice
Topped off with:
- Sprinkle of Bear Naked Fit granola
- Maple peanut butter
Absolutely divine. Totally worth the wait.
I think today may have to be the day that I finally stop at Starbucks to get my Pumpkin Spiced Latte…might as well keep the pumpkin trend going! Besides, it is Coffee Friday.
This morning I was able to get about 45 minutes of a solid strength workout in, thanks again to Exercise TV. I’ve been loving their new category, “10lb Slimdown” with Chris Freytag, so today I did the Upper Body & Core workouts. I love them, not only because they’re a great workout, but also because I complete almost all the moves without having to modify for my foot. It’s mostly low impact on the lower body, or floor work, which is perfect for gimpy over here!
This afternoon I’m spending some time with my Mom, doing a little “Back to School” shopping…she offered to get me a new outfit for “back to school” – can’t beat that!
Oh yes, and I almost forgot to share! Yesterday I got my hair cut & colored…what do ya think?
The “do” was a little faded out and dull from all the summer weather, so it needed a little updating. I wanted to add some red undertones this time, and Mom did an AWESOME job on it (she’s a hairdresser). Thanks, Mom!
Trying desperately to use the glass front door as a “mirror” to my camera screen…I’m horrible at taking self-photos!
Stay tuned this afternoon for a little Fashion Friday, Banana Republic style.
