Nap Time, Please?

by Courtney on September 17, 2010

Can I get a WOOT WOOT for Friday?!?! I don’t know about you, but I’m doin’ my Happy Dance. ;)


Unfortunately, a lack of preparation last night, meant for a pretty hectic morning. I hate when I do that to myself. :roll: Luckily, the day turned out to be much smoother than its start.

Here’s some highlights from today’s eats:

Startin’ things off with a little Cookie Friday celebration, a la Tina style. Hey, there’s banana and oats in there…don’t judge. ;)


The celebrations continued with a little Coffee Friday action on my way into work. Pumpkin Spice baby…and alllll was right in the world.


After seeing drooling over Julie’s cottage cheese + pumpkin combo a couple days ago, I finally realized…“DUH, you have all of that in your fridge!”


I promise, the cottage cheese was down there!


My combo went a little somethin’ like this:

  • 3/4 cup 1% cottage cheese
  • 1/2 cup pumpkin
  • 2 spoonfuls unsweetened applesauce
  • raisins
  • cinnamon
  • pumpkin pie spice


Then, as I was putting stuff back in the fridge, I saw my lonely Cinnamon Date Manna Bread sitting there…I certainly couldn’t neglect that! What a combo!


More goods…



Thanks for all your feedback on today’s Fashion Friday post! It appears I’m not alone on my feelings about UGGS. If you haven’t weighed in yet, make sure you go check it out! :)

I’m really not sure what the rest of the night includes for me and the hubby…but I do know that I’m about to go lay down for a NAP. First full week of teaching = EXHAUSTION. :shock:

I have it in white and brown. :)

That breakfast definitely looks great. One of the reasons I added it to my Fall post this morning along with your cupcakes of course! :)

I love z-bars.I just the Spooky S’mores one yesterday, can’t wait to try it out!! I love the sounds of that pumpkin/cottage cheese combo too. I might add in a swirl of maple syrup!


8 Courtney September 18, 2010 at 11:56 am

I can’t find that flavor ANYWHERE!!! :( I want to try it so bad.


9 Pete September 17, 2010 at 9:09 pm

Courtney! that really looks awesome! i might have to mix us up some of that! what do you think on top of some apple slices cooked down with some sugar, similar spices and a bit of water? would that be wierd?



10 Courtney September 18, 2010 at 11:55 am

That would be AWESOME! I may have to try that out. ;)

I totally agree with you- I hated Uggs, until I put them on… I still think they’re hideous, as does Lloyd, and I think most men, BUT- cozyness is unmatchable!


12 Melissa (MelissaLikesToEat) September 17, 2010 at 9:50 pm

Cottage Cheese and Bananas=two things I don’t like. :( I know..I’m weird.


13 Stephanie September 17, 2010 at 10:02 pm

14 theprocessofhealing September 17, 2010 at 10:41 pm

I don’t even like cottage cheese but that sounds delicious!

Beware — the DD Pumpkin Spice coffee has a TON of calories in it because it’s pre-sweetened. Like 300. I discovered this after a half season of drinking it daily.


16 Courtney September 18, 2010 at 11:56 am

Ohhhh Sam, don’t tell me that! I wanted to keep playing oblivious to that little detail…


17 Jean@RoastedRootsandPumpkinSpice September 18, 2010 at 9:44 am

Loving the pumpkin theme. I think I need to go buy a pumpkin flavored coffee somewhere today. Enjoy your weeekend!
