Queen of Lazy

I totally took advantage of my 1/2 price Frapuccino today!  YUMM!! :-P

I actually, however, was slightly disappointed in my order.  Normally, I get a Caramel Light Frapuccino, aka, frosty heaven through a cup. :-P  Today, I fell victim to the “let’s try something new because it’s on the snazzy board” dilemma.  I ended up getting a tall Extra Coffee Caramel Frappucino, which I really didn’t think would be much different from my norm, except for a little extra coffee; but it was surprisingly much different tasting, and I ended up craving my usual…boooo!  Ohh well, at least it was 1/2 price and I know better for next time!  I still finished the whole thing anyways ;)

I also, in honor of Cookie Friday, decided to get myself a Treat-Sized Double Chocolate Cookie…

Surprisingly enough, this cookie was actually TOO chocolaty for me!?!?  Totally, wasn’t expecting that one! I only ate 1/2 and saved the rest for the hubby, which he enjoyed. :)

Before I stopped to get my treats from the ‘Bucks, I popped in to a local store to do a little Mother’s Day shopping for Mom.  I found what I was looking for! :)  I can’t post it yet, since Mom will be reading, but here’s a little sneak peek to get you thinkin, Mom! ;)

Hmmmmm, what could it be?!?!?! :-D

Tonight, Jay had a softball game in his men’s league, so I went down to watch.  It’s a good time, because all the “girls” get to hang out in the bleachers and chat :)  Because of the game, however, my dinner was totally thrown off!  Before I left for the game, I ended up having a small piece of my leftover pizza from the other night on my way out the door.  When we got home, we were both starving but really not in the mood to wait to make anything!  Sooo, we got SUPER lazy, and pulled out the emergency frozen dinners :)

I really am a fan of the Lean Cuisine paninis, pizzas, and flatbreads.  They have some really good flavor to them and are great in a pinch!  This was my first time trying this panini, and I definitely give it 2 THUMBS UP! :-D

The spinach, chicken, and artichoke flavors all complimented each other REALLY well! :)  I was too lazy to use real dishes too, so paper plates it was!

Along with our lazy meals, we decided to break out a couple delicious beverages…”His & Hers”.

I really LOVE this blueberry ale…it’s AMAZING! :-P  According to the Blue Point Brewing Company website, “Blue Point fresh Blueberry Ale offers an unusual twist on brewing that turns out to be just perfect. A wonderful blend of fresh blueberries matched with a thirst quenching distinctive ale. We carefully add 132 lbs of blueberries to each special batch. Brewed with 100% American ingredients. Enjoy a truly unique flavorful brew!”

Jay and I both have early mornings tomorrow, so we’re having a night in and catching up on our shows that we DVR’d from Wednesday (YAY Modern Family & Cougar Town!)

What’s your favorite type of beer? :-P

Normally, I’m happy with your basic domestic beer, because the microbrews are usually a little too “hoppy” for me.  Although I have found a few (BLUEBERRY ALE) that I really enjoy! :)  Once summer starts, Jay and I are also big Bud Light Lime fans! ;)

My Very First OIAJ!

Just as a quick update, last night after BodyPump, I ended up coming home with a craving for cereal, so I finished off my box of Kashi Vive (a little less than a cup worth) with some almond milk (totally LOVING this stuff) & berries.  This stuff is SO YUMMY!  It totally hit the spot!

I also may or may not have had a few bites of leftover Margarita Cake. :-P

This morning was a very joyous occasion for breakfast…I had my first opportunity for OIAJ!!! (Oats in a Jar) :-D

My beloved Blizzard Butter was on it’s last leg, so it was time to fill ‘er up with some good ‘ol oatmeal ;)

In the oatmeal mix today was:

-1/3 cup oats

-1/3 cup Silk Pure Vanilla Almond Milk

-1/3 cup water

-1 small smashed banana

-Raisins

-Cinnamon & Nutmeg

It may not look pretty, but it sure tastes heavenly! :-P  The aroma of peanut butter in front of me right now is unbelievable…YUMM-O!

I’m off to the second day of my conference today…HAPPY FRIDAY! :-D

Don’t forget, today is the first day of Starbucks Happy Hour!  You know where I’ll be later today! ;)

Customized Frappucinos!

One of my favorite beverage indulgences is nothing other than a Starbucks Frappucino.

On a warm spring or summer day, there’s nothin’ better than a frosty, creamy, frozen frap.  It’s pretty much my heaven through a straw :)

So in case you haven’t heard, Starbucks is now allowing all of us Frappucino followers to customize our very own beverage!  :-D  What was that?…can I get a WOOT WOOT!!

There’s 4 steps to the “customization” process:

  1. Choose Your Milk - soy, non-fat, 2%?
  2. Pick Your CoffeeFeelin tired? Go for extra coffee or a shot of espresso.  Need to sleep? Go decaf!
  3. Lower Your CaloriesOrder the light version and/or ask to hold the whip!
  4. Add Some Fun StuffCaramel, chocolate sauce, chocolate chips, whipped cream…there’s so many!

You can actually go onto their website and play around to create and name your own Frap!  Here’s a snapshot of mine ;)

So are you guys ready for the GREAT news?!?

Between May 7th – May 16th, Starbucks is going to be hosting a “Happy Hour” where you can enjoy 1/2 PRICE Frappucinos between 3-5pm.  How fun is that?!? :-D

If you need to find me this Friday somewhere between 3-5, I’ll give you one guess where I might be! ;)

So hey guys, guess what?  Our wedding photographer just recently updated their blog with some snapshots of our wedding from back in January!  Click here if you want to check ‘em out! :)

And if you haven’t had the chance to check out the “Wedding” tab on my blog, go ahead and sneak a peek! ;)
