Preparing for Departure

I was feeling oatmeal this morning, but…



I couldn’t resist this fresh-baked loaf of Great Harvest Honey Whole Wheat hubby picked up yesterday (ok it’s like a day old, but it’s pretty darn fresh!)




I ended up with toast with real butter, a fried cage free egg and half an organic orange.


With nice, hot coffee of course.





Bailey was looking so cute today. I had to take some photos.


Hot tulsi tea (no sweetener) in Chai Masala.


I was on phone conferences during lunch, so I just grabbed some random stuff.


An Amy’s veggie burger and some pretzels (because I was craving something salty).





Great Harvest toast with Earthfare Organic Pomegranate jelly and chia seeds.



I took care of some giveaway packages (been procrastinating on these…not gonna lie. Sorry! Things have just been so crazy around here lately!). While I still need to officially announce winners, I’ve got a few packages packed up and ready to drop off for delivery. yay! 😀


I snacked on one of Julie’s Chai Tea Scones while I worked on my bloggie projects.


Salad for dinner – baby romaine, sunflower seeds, Drew’s Rosemary Balsamic dressing.



Pizza for dinner! I had 1 1/2 slices of cheese with bell pepper and red onion and 1 slice of cheese.


Hubby even picked up some panna cotta gelato for dessert. Yum yum!




I have to work an hour-ish away from town and be there at 8am, so it’s going to be an early morning for me. Eek! Did I mention I still have to pack? 😕 Yup, the bad news is that I have to commute nearly 2 hours tomorrow. The good news is that it’s on the way to see hubby’s mom. We’re visiting her this weekend and I’ve got a bloggie meet-up planned, too! Fun fun!

I have several posts and pages in the work, and I finally completed one this week…

Check out my new Plateware page (click to view)!

By the way, since ladies figure skating is on tonight, I thought I’d mention…did you guys know I used to ice skate? Yep…here’s proof. Ok, rusty proof, but still…lol

So, the figure skating fan in me cannot pry myself away from the TV. Though I have to be up far earlier than normal, I can’t stop watching. Gah! 😆

What are you up to this weekend?

  1. I don’t know HOW you do everything that you do. For me, between constant interviewing, deadlines for my columns and posting regularly on CinS, I’m beat. And couple that with chasing a mischievious pug around the house getting in trouble, oy vey!

    The pictures are amazing – as always 🙂

    • Honestlty, with a full-time, and very demanding job, it’s a struggle. I’ve been staying up late to get posts done. I’m hoping to work on my work-life balance with both my real-work and blog work. 🙂

  2. The iceskating was impressive! Have a good trip.

    I love your plateware page. I recently ordered a full set of 12 settings of handmade pottery. I ordered it after Christmas and am still waiting. In the meantime I have been browsing and buying pottery from etsy. I love the classy dishes you have 🙂

  3. I absolutely adore the plateware page! I was so excited when you talked about your mugs and how you find most of them on sale at Starbucks – I’m totally the one who submitted that question on your formspring, hahah! 🙂

    I love the ice skating clips – you are SO talented! I always wanted to do figure skating when I was younger (who am I kidding, I still do!) but I was always in gymnastics. My niece is in her second year of skating and LOVES it. She’s only 7 and already so amazing on the ice.

    I’m actually re-planning my weekend right now. We were supposed to go visit my parents and my father in law this weekend, but tons of snow up north is preventing us from doing so, yet again. But, I’m taking it as an opportunity to catch up on some much needed blogging and gym time! 🙂
