Random Thoughts on a Wednesday Afternoon

by Courtney on September 12, 2012

Hey, friends!

Thanks so much for the positive feedback on the living room – so glad you guys are diggin’ it! But more importantly, thanks to everyone who’s been linking up some of their favorite recipes in the comments section of this morning’s post. I’ve already gone through and bookmarked quite a few…keep ‘em comin’!

So I already had to be out and about this morning before my massage appointment, so I hit up good ‘ol Starbucks for some breakfast.


A banana from home + an egg white, spinach, and feta wrap, plus a grande coffee with 2 pumps pumpkin and milk. Yumm-diddly-dum.

As for my massage? Amazing. I swear it was the quickest hour I’ve experienced all week, of course. For those of you who are local and may be looking for a new massage place, I cannot say enough good things about Essential Indulgences in Troy. Lesley is absolutely incredible and each time I’ve left there, I end up feeling like a million bucks. Seriously…go check her out!

Once I got back from that, I decided to pass on a workout for today (3 active days followed by a rest day seems to be my thing lately) and quickly showered (since the greasy post-massage look is just oh-so-appealing). All of a sudden, I realized I was starving for lunch. It was only 11:30, but considering I ate breakfast around 7:30am, it made sense.

I don’t know if it was the earlier than usual time or what, but I was in the mood for eggs…again.


Hey, when the craving strikes, right? Winking smile


Today’s bowl consisted of two scrambled eggs, broccoli, onions, tomatoes, red bell peppers, feta cheese, and salsa.


Obviously I’m all about the variety today.

Random Thoughts on a Wednesday Afternoon…

  • I have searched my house high and low for these fall decorations I made last year and am completely stumped as to where they could be. It’s driving me nuts.
  • I am completely psyched about all the talk for the new iPhone5. Hubby and I have been holding out on upgrading to the iPhone for over a year now…it’s time and I am readyyyyyy. Anyone else jumping on board with me?
  • Ever since reading Ashley’s post this morning, I’ve been craving waffles for dinner tonight. Homemade waffles…not the frozen ones you guys see basically every other day up in here. We’ll see if I can get Jay in on this one.
  • I know I said I wasn’t game for the Candy Corn Oreos, but after seeing Liz’s creation, I’m now second guessing that decision.
  • As someone who grew up watching General Hospital after school, I can’t quite get past the fact that it’s now on a whole hour earlier. Even though I rarely ever sit down and actually watch, it’s almost always on in the background. Just hearing it makes me think it’s later than it actually is.
  • I tried the Clementine bai5 today…it’s amazing. And I’ll be choosing the lucky winners later this evening, so get your entries in if you haven’t already!

What are some of your random thoughts this afternoon? Winking smile

my brother is oogling the iphone 5 and reading the live blog on it right now! i think it’s safe to say he is definitely on the bandwagon ;) but since i have the iphone 4s i’m going to wait a year or two more to get a new one. if it ain’t broke don’t fix it, right? plus my poor college student budget would be crying if i spent that much money on a phone. haha. :)

also i’m a huge fan of starbucks egg white breakfast wraps! i have yet to try their pumpkin spice syrup in coffee since i’ve been making my own coffee at home so much lately – but i think it’s definitely going to happen soon!

My husband and I too are waiting for the new iPhone 5! woohoo. I think homemade waffles are good anytime of the day. I freeze my leftover waffles and sometimes eat them as a small snack during the day. Mine have protein powder and added fiber in them. Yum. Have a great day! ^_^

Random thought at the moment: some of my co-workers are interesting! Haha at least work is never boring!

And I think you should give the Candy Corn Oreos a try :)

I’m all about the waffles for dinner plan. Then you can truly complete the roll you’re on with breakfast for each meal of the day! ;) Random thought of the moment: A nap is sounding mighty fine right now!

What did Cody do with your decorations? LOL. Did you check with your Christmas decorations? Good luck finding them. Once you stop looking, you’ll find them. Either that or ask Jay to look for them. Sometimes I can look all over the place for something and I mention it to my husband and he finds what I was looking for immediately. I used to watch All My Children all the time and was very sad when it went off the air!!!! I watched General Hospital and One Life to Live too!!! Homemade waffles are the best. If we have leftovers, I have been known to make ice cream sandwiches out of them. Yummy!!!!


9 Carol @ Lucky Zucca September 12, 2012 at 3:32 pm

I didn’t know you could get a custom made coffee drink at Starbucks! What is wrong with me? I guess this isn’t really a random thought, but I feel like a huge dork today because I’m wearing tennis shoes with skinny jeans. My feet have been hurting so badly so I’ve been wearing sneakers for extra support and I couldn’t wear the same pair of jeans three days in a row so I wore skinnies today and I look ridiculous! I’ve been hiding my feet under my desk as much as possible haha!

Waffles for dinner sound like a good plan. I’m craving breakfast for dinner, so pretty sure that’s how it will end up.
I feel like eggs make a better lunch then breakfast. I’m always eating them at lunch time.
And I also ate lunch around 11:30 today. It made me feel 6 again:)

I am so toying with the idea of the candy corn Oreo’s too. Just at Target? I’m trying to be oh so good on my diet when I’m not at special events this month, but those just tempt me. Someone should do research to see if candy corns would be just as addictive if they were different colors. I swear it’s the colors.

So jealous of your massage! I could definitely use one!!

I love salsa on eggs :)


13 Katie September 12, 2012 at 4:26 pm

Yes please on a massage! I am trying to hold out on my September one until further in the month. Random inklings around here on Wednesday afternoon;
-How soon can I get to a store to try those dang oreo’s?
-Is it 5pm yet?
-Should I drink wine or not tonight?
-Now I want eggs too :)

It’s been way too long since I broke out the waffle maker – that may have to happen soon. :-D

P.S. I LOVE Starbucks egg white, feta & spinach wrap – now I want one!! :))


16 Linda September 12, 2012 at 5:10 pm

Just a thought…did you use the frames from last year’s craft for something else in your house and the prints are still in it?


17 Shari September 12, 2012 at 5:55 pm

I’m an avid GH watcher – have been for eleven years – and this time change is really throwing me off! It’ll never happen, but I’m secretly hoping ABC will move Katie’s show to 2:00 and GH back to 3:00. In any case – it’s been CRAZY GOOD lately! I thought yesterday’s episode in particular was incredibly well done.

I love getting massages. Foot massages are my favorite. Since massages are relatively inexpensive in China… I go often… but it is anything but relaxing. In a word… PAINFUL! It hurts so bad! Was your massage painful as well? I swear… the women here have STRONG hands.

I wish I were a waffle person, but I’m just not. Okay, I take that back – I am a frozen waffle girl, not a homemade waffle girl. Weird.

I so wish I was waiting for the iPhone 5. My camera on my phone broke and I was dying without it so I had upgrade from the 4 to the 4s back in March now I’m stuck until AT&T decides I can purchase another iPhone at a discount. I also love pumpkin latte time, cannot get enough!

I need a new phone, and I’m actually planning to buy an iPhone this week. What is the difference between the 4s and the 5, though? As soon as I buy something, they’ll come out with something else. It never ends, haha.

The new Iphone looks awesome!! I have the 4 and am worried to lose unlimited data (I think Verizon makes you change plans now if you upgrade and still have unlimited data) but I am certainly debating getting the phone!!

I LOVE LOVE LOVE that Starbucks breakfast wrap, I could eat one everyday!!

I looked for those Candy Corn Oreos last night at my grocery store but they didn’t have them…I bet Target does and I NEED to try them although I am personally worried I would eat the whole bag!!

I just purchased the Fontana pumpkin syrup on Starbuck’s website! Not sure if you can buy it in their store (havent seen it?) but there’s a 10% off coupon for first time purchases on line. Promo code: STNPWEKD in case you’re interested. Can’t wait to get mine next week!! :))


36 Courtney September 14, 2012 at 5:11 pm

WOAH – Just found it online…this could be dangerous. ;)
Thanks for the heads up!!
