Holy busy morning, Batman. WHEW!
This morning, I got up around 7:00am to fit my workout in for the day. I knew that if I didn’t finish it first thing, it wasn’t gonna be happening since I had LOTS to do. Today’s workout took place on the treadmill, completing 40 minutes of these treadmill intervals. It was awesome.
As soon as I finished, I poured myself a delicious cereal combo bowl.
Kashi Honey Sunshine, Fiber One 80 Calorie Honey Squares, banana slices, chia seeds, and almond milk.
I actually consumed my cereal bowl while writing up this morning’s 7 Links post, and as soon as I finished, I was headed out the door.
Had I not been a total space case and gotten all of the ingredients that I needed to make my frosting yesterday, I wouldn’t have HAD to make this special trip. But no, I am indeed a space case, so out I went for my one ingredient.
Don’t worry, I made it worth my while.
A made a quick stop at Dunkin’ Donuts to properly celebrate Coffee Friday with an iced coffee (we ran out yesterday). I also made the trip even more worth my while by picking up a couple of these little gems.
Any time I see blueberry cake munchkins I crumble. I just cannot turn them down. Better yet, I seem to have quite good luck when asking for these. Today, I asked the guy at the counter for two, but came home only to notice that he gave me four…AND he didn’t even charge me!
It may not have been as good of a deal as the last time I asked for some, but I’d still say I made out pretty good.
As soon as I returned home with my one lone ingredient and my goodies, I got to work in the kitchen. Would you believe that I used about 5-6 pounds of powdered sugar today???
Just in case you didn’t believe me…
Six dozen cupcakes…DONE!
Oreo Cream Cupcakes with Vanilla Buttercream Frosting
Citrus Lemon Cupcakes with Lemon Filling & Lemon Cream Cheese Frosting (this is a new one!)
Neapolitan Cupcakes with Ice Cream Frosting (the ice cream was my ONE ingredient I needed this morning!)
Want to guess how many pounds of that powdered sugar made it into mah belly?
Nope, I really don’t want to know either.
What I DO know is that I feel like I’d like to lick the bottom of a pretzel bag right now…I am craving some salt BAD!
Well, I know today is supposed to be Fashion Friday, but I never really went ahead and planned a fun post for ya’ll. Sorry.
That would be un-showered Courtney with my only saving grace being the absolutely adorable apron that I received this past Christmas from the Blogger Holiday Gift Exchange. Isn’t it cute? (And by it, I definitely am not referring to anything except the apron).
Now, I’d say it’s about time to go shower…and grab some more salt.
Question for the Afternoon:
How many trips (on average) would you say you make to the grocery store in one week?
