In a Nutshell

by Courtney on November 6, 2012


I voted. Did you?


I spent the afternoon with mom, including a lunch date at Panera.


Half Fuji Apple Chicken salad, half broccoli cheddar soup, and a diet Pepsi, because I was just in the mood for one.

I can’t even tell you the last time I had that soup, but it did not take long to remember just how good the stuff is. Wow.

Mom and I also talked about a potential upcoming mom & daughter night out, which I’m super excited about…especially since it involves THIS.


SQUEEEEL! I’ve already seen this show two (three?) times, and it never, ever gets old. I heard that this year it’s a brand new show though, which I’m super pumped about. I also love that it’s coming to our area before Christmas this year; for the past few years, they’ve come after Christmas, and it just isn’t the same.

Lunch was pretty filling, and I wasn’t in much of a mood to cook this evening, so it was a breakfast for dinner sort of night.


Egg and veggie scramble plus a pumpkin spice English muffin with half butter, half pumpkin butter.

Oh, and this afternoon also included a ton of good laughs and memories from my childhood bedroom…


But I’ll share those with you guys tomorrow. Winking smile

I didn’t vote, since I live in Canada;) Oh, that’s so exciting!! I’ve always wanted to go to one of those performances! The orchestra would be so festive right before Christmas!!

Love you pick two from Panera! I had the Fuji Apple Chicken salad last week, and it tasted delicious! I also *always* order black bean soup when it’s offered. :)

About a year ago when I was rummaging through my chidhood bedroom at my parents I found two of my teeth that had been pulled in a container shaped like a pumpkin. Holy pack rat batman!!

Yay! I love going through childhood belongings and bringing up all the good memories!
My older brother recently gave me a huge stack of certificates and awards from when I was younger (about 30% of them are from moving up to the next belt in kung fu, haha).

Every year Christmas Eve at church a high school band (reeeeallly good) comes in and plays something from the Trans-Siberian Orchestra. It’s awesome.

I love the concept of breakfast for dinner but never seem to make it all that often for some reason or another. After all of the fall pancake recipes that I have seen lately on the blogs, I definitely already have them on the dinner menu for next week!

Tonight was a breakfast for dinner kind of evening for me as well… it actually seems to be happening more often lately, but breakfast is just too good to only eat once a day! And omigosh how much do I love going through the stuff I left at my parents’ place. Can’t wait to hear about some of your memories!

Did not vote – but I am Canadian. :-)

Love, love, love Trans-Siberian! I saw them a few years ago and it was one of the best live shows I’ve ever seen. Definitely hoping I get the chance to go again one day.

Love, love, love TSO! I’ve seen the show twice, but I think I could go again this year. They are outstanding performers!

Please tell me that clear box I see with lots of different colored string was for friendship bracelets?! I used to have a box like that with tons of colors so I could make a million of them

I love the Trans Siberian Orchestra. They are coming to Indianapolis, but I do not think I will be attending, if you go please do a recap!! :)

The Broccoli Cheese soup from Panera is so good! :) It’s definitely one of my favorites.

Oh my gosh, are those colorful threads for friendship bracelet making?! If not, now I’m embarrassed because that’s what my container used to look like that held all that stuff. Being 12 was, like, so fun ;)

I love the fact that your breakfast for dinner resembles a smiley face! Maybe I’m just looking for something positive to add to my day, but regardless – I love it! Have a great day :)

You totally got me hooked on that Panera salad. I would always order the Fuji one, but then I saw the Apple one on here last year…and figured you knew your stuff, so since then I’ve been getting it & oh man, it’s SO GOOD!!
