I think I’ve determined that 10-hour workdays are going to require a little afternoon pick-me-up.
This afternoon, I had to run out to take care of a quick errand and lucky (or unlucky) for me, I have a Starbucks right down the road. Thoughts of skinny caramel macchiatos quickly began swirling around in my head, and before I knew it, I had to have one. I have a feeling it could be very easy to develop a Starbucks habit! Yikes.
Hey, at least I still brown-bagged dinner, right?
I packed up a simple veggie salad to have for dinner, complete with:
- romaine lettuce
- cherry tomatoes
- green onions
- leftover cauliflower
- black beans
- baby carrots
- goat cheese
- pineapple peach salsa
YUM! I also ended up feeding my bottomless pit with some more trail mix, half a pear, and a handful of candy corn this afternoon. I just can.not.resist the candy corn!
Now, after working all day, I’m ready to go to town in the kitchen.
Ohhh wait, I forgot to tell you all? Here, let me give you a little run down of the next couple of days for me…
-Tomorrow I’m working until 3…
-Then Jay and I have a rehearsal dinner to go to tomorrow night for a wedding that Jay is in…
-Then Jay and I will be attending said wedding for our awesome friends, Josh & Erika, on Saturday.
-And somewhere in between there, I have to bake up 100 cupcakes for their wedding.
Talk about going from not busy to having a full plate, right?
Don’t get me wrong, I am beyond honored to be asked by Josh and Erika to make the cupcakes for their wedding and I am REALLY looking forward to it…I just have to manage my time like a rock star these next couple of days!
Questions for the Evening:
Are you more of a brown-bagger for lunch and/or dinner during the week or do you tend to buy more meals out during the week?
