My favorite part of the day.
After work, once we’re all home together.
And, of course, it certainly helps when Lucas napped well during the day and is in a good mood! Yesterday, Jay showed Lucas how to juggle, and he thought it was just the best thing going.
And once that got old, we had to play his other favorite game of hide and seek under the blanket. That will still keep him occupied for a good 4-5 minutes at a time.
I just love this boy.
So since today is Wednesday and all that jazz, how about we do a little WIAW action? Today’s post features eats from Monday, so let’s get movin’…
Overnight Oatmeal + a grande blond roast from Starbucks
Added bonus: my coffee was a freebie thank to a reward I earned with my Gold Card (you get a free drink after 12 purchased). I feel so special. Or, rather, maybe it’s just further confirmation that I go there too often…
Wasn’t too hungry but decided to snack on a Golden Delicious apple.
These apples are still, by far, my absolute favorite!
Another day, another salad. I think it’s about time I start switching up my lunches a bit. What have you guys been loving lately? I need some inspiration.
Then again, sometimes it’s the only sure way I get some veggies in me, depending on how lazy we are come dinner time.
I found myself hungry for something a little sweet a couple hours later, so I grabbed a peanut butter cookie Larabar from my desk stash.
I’ve actually really been loving the Larabars these days. Most recently, I discovered the peanut butter chocolate chip one (I think that’s it…?) and it blew me away.
These are almost always guaranteed, but because I’m usually rushing around, trying to feed Lucas, or attempting to get dinner ready, they don’t always get documented. Pretty sure that this particular day probably included some crusts from a PB&J sandwich and a handful or two of Snap Pea Crisps (because those are just freakin delicious).
We decided to wait until Lucas went to bed to eat dinner on Monday which, although a bit later than I’d prefer, was actually rather peaceful! On the menu was skinny shrimp and broccoli alfredo.
The color turned a little darker thanks to our not paying attention and slightly browning the garlic a bit more than we should have…but hey, it was still delicious nonetheless.
If you follow me on Instagram, then you probably saw this picture I posted last week:
We occasionally get their catalogs in the mail and on this particular day, I decided to post a pic of it in an attempt to get Jay to go out and buy me chocolates for no good reason other than I wanted chocolate. And caramel.
Well wouldn’t you know, I get home from work on Monday and find a package on my door step…
Godiva!! You wonderful, wonderful people. They saw my post and ended up sending along this fab assortment (including the caramel truffle flight I had been craving!). Of course, I had to dive in and have a couple of pieces.
Talk about amazing (not only the customer outreach, but the chocolate, too). Thank you, Godiva, for fueling my caramel addiction.
Aaaand, that’s a wrap! So tell me…what have you guys been eating and loving? (specifically, send me some lunch ideas, puhleeeease!)
