My Kryptonite

by Courtney on August 14, 2012

How about some pretty flowers to start off your morning?


I tossed these into my shopping cart at Aldi’s over the weekend because it’s been way too long since I’d had some pretty, fresh flowers in the house. Plus, they were only $3.99…how could I pass that up?

Quick side note before going on…we won our softball game last night and are now into the semi-finals next week. WOO HOO!

Alright, so back to today. I had to run out quick early this morning, but I ended up making a slight detour before heading home.


Funny thing is, I had even put a pot of iced coffee on before leaving this morning, so I knew I had some ready and waiting for me. I guess when the craving strikes…?


Once I did get back home, I whipped up a quick egg, provolone, and raspberry jam English muffin sandwich.


As lopsided as ever. Winking smile

I should also mention that iced coffee wasn’t the only thing that wound up making their way into my car this morning…

I just can NOT resist these blueberry cake munchkins. They are my kryptonite. I had only asked for two, but somehow ended up with four…what is with me and snagging the extra munchkins all the time??


Just a heads up…for those who may be interested, I just discovered that today is National Orange Creamsicle Day. Perhaps you might want to try making a batch of my Frozen Orange Creamsicle Snacks? Smile

Question for the Morning:

What’s your kryptonite (weakness)?

I’m not sure I could resist those babies either! Fortunately we don’t have a DD close to us, otherwise I’d be in trouble. ;)

6 Alyssa @ fit and fun in third August 14, 2012 at 9:09 am

My kryptonite is honey wheat pretzels, chocolate covered pretzels, and roasted veggies! Quite a combination, huh?

Way to go on the softball game! Oh my, any donut is my kryptonite…..that’s why I completey avoid the donut store {if I don’t, it’s not good}!

14 Suzanne @ Fit Minded Mom August 14, 2012 at 9:48 am

What pretty flowers, especially for $3.99!! Next time I am near an Aldi I am going to hit it up to see what all I can find.

I have never had a donut from Dunkin Donuts before. I wonder if that is odd. We don’t have one near us and when I am around one, I never go for the donuts because if we are being honest, they aren’t the best for my waistline.

17 Sarah @ Blonde Bostonian August 14, 2012 at 9:53 am

I used to work at Dunkin’ when I was in high school and the blueberry donuts/munchkins were my fav! They’re definitely my kryptonite as well. Whenever I see them at a Dunkin’ (which is actually not very often!) I always get a couple too!

18 Katie @ Talk Less, Say More August 14, 2012 at 9:53 am

My kryptonite is definitely chocolate or anything sweet. I’m not big on donuts so I’m usually safe there, but cookies, cake, ice cream and I’m done for!

21 Katie August 14, 2012 at 10:23 am

My kryptonite is probably Nutella or dark chocolate. Perhaps I should coat some dark chocolate in Nutella…
Sounds dangerous.

Do you have Tim Horton’s by you? I was in Ithaca and tried their lemon glazed and raspberry glazed cake munchkins-so gooooooood!


29 Courtney August 14, 2012 at 11:18 am

No, we don’t! The only time I ever see them is at rest stops ;)


30 Dione August 14, 2012 at 6:48 pm

I am Canadian and Tim’s is everywhere…yep it is true. And they are called timbits there….my favorites are the chocolate cake ones and the raspberry filled and the sour cream. I prefer timbits to whole donuts so I can eat a few different ones. They are a common evening or night shift treat in the lab where I work. Sometimes people bring them in in the morning too.
My kryponite lately is Hostess hickory sticks (another Canadian treat). I have always loved them but lately I can’t get enough of those salty little sticks:)


31 Brandi August 14, 2012 at 11:01 am

Oh goodness, blueberry cake donuts have to be my favorite thing! Yum! Hmm, my weakness has to be laffy taffy. Especially banana and strawberry!


32 Brittany @ ReadRunRepeat August 14, 2012 at 11:10 am

Lately, Cheeze-its have been my weakness! I can’t stop eating them — someone has to physically take the box away from me and remove it from my sight. And of course, i always want to eat them at bedtime!!!

33 Erica @ For the Sake of Cake August 14, 2012 at 11:11 am

Sometimes homemade iced coffee just doesn’t match up to the wonders of DD! I love those blueberry munchkins too! Have you ever had the jelly-filled munchkins? OMG.

34 Julie August 14, 2012 at 11:33 am

My weakness is definitely sweets! I’m getting better about making sure it’s a sweet that is really worth it, though. No stale store-bought snacks, just the really decadent splurge here and there!

Congrats on softball!

37 Jen Correa @ Mom's Gotta Run August 14, 2012 at 11:52 am

My food weakness is candy, especially the sour kind. It’s sad to be 37 and sneaking candy so my kids don’t see me.

My kryptonite would have to be oreos! There’s a reason I NEVER keep them in my house- I would eat half the bag in one day if I could! :)

I am pretty much powerless when it comes to Dunkin Donuts too. I’d say that my Kryptonite is Subway though. I’ve become obsessed during this pregnancy!

My krptonite is M&M’s. Cannot stay away from these chocolate morsels!!


42 Shannon August 14, 2012 at 1:50 pm

Those are some gorgeous flowers! A great price for them too. :)

My kryptonite is chocolate, in general. I LOVE Double Stuf Oreos; if there are some in the house, they’ll be gone within a day. Also, cupcakes and brownies are a big weakness of mine.


43 Amy @ Inspired Amy August 14, 2012 at 3:07 pm

Ahh those look so yummy. Up in Canada those “munchkins” are more commonly known as Timbits (from Tim Hortons). You can’t go to any softball/soccer/any sport really game without seeing a box of these lying out, and it’s so hard to stop at one!

44 Vanessa G August 14, 2012 at 4:26 pm

I can pass up about any sweet, but my weakness is ice cream. I eat it every single night. I have for years! Good thing I also run alot. I say my ice cream makes me run faster, Haha.


45 Erin August 14, 2012 at 8:50 pm

Self serve fro yo! I spend like $20 a week on it!

Hahha, maybe whoever works the counter at Dunkin Donuts has a crush ;) Or thinks you need a few extra munchkins on you!
