Today has been such a fun day! GLORIOUS! I woke up at 8:00 and stumbled around the house in a hazy fog. The smell of my chocolate chip cookie flavored espresso slapped me right out of it though. I managed to scrape enough grounds out of the bag for one last cup and now it's all gone. NOOOO! I must find it again! I came across it while digging around at HomeGoods. I've never seen the brand anywhere else. Sigh!
I woke up hungry and remedied the situation with a tasty oatmeal concoction.

What does this combo equal? DELICIOUSNESS! YEAH!
After my smoothie I changed and then proceeded to spend my kidneys at the grocery store down the street. BLEK!
I came home, restocked my fridge, cabinets and pantry and fixed myself a quick lunch. I basically loaded a plate with all the flavors I was craving. Sweet, savory and tart/sour.
LUNCH (meal #3) at 3:30pm.
I toasted an English muffin and smeared pumpkin butter on one half and superfruit jam on the other. SO GOOD! I was also craving eggs so I made a scramble with 4 egg whites, chopped spinach, pink salt, red pepper flakes, black pepper and drizzle of Sriracha. For dessert I sliced up a gigantic navel orange.
The rest of the afternoon got a LITTLE WILD. I'll just apologize ahead of time for what happens next. It went a little something like this.
Me: Hey Nick, let's drink.... It's the weekend, let's enjoy it.
Me: Want to do a shot?
Nick: Sure, (we pour two shots of Sailor Jerry's rum and down them..YUK!)...
Me: Wine sounds good... ( I crack open a bottle Riesling and start sipping it...)
Nick: Ohhh, I have some Red Stripe in the fridge! (he dives right in...)
Me: Let's watch Dexter, cuddle, snack (I made a bowl of pretzels and hot wasabi peas) and hang out in our pajamas all afternoon while enjoying our cocktails of choice.
Nick: Sounds good. Want another shot of rum?
Me: Why yes polite Sir., thanks for asking. (OH MY!!!)
So uhm yeah, THAT'S how our ENTIRE afternoon was spent (starting at like 5:00). And you know what? I HAD THE BEST TIME EVER! ;) We chased each other around the house. Had tickle sessions. WRASTLING sessions. A push up contest, WHICH I LOST! Declarations of love for each other followed by massive amounts of SASS talk and threats of unnecessary bodily harm (in a comical way). I love my crazy man!
In the midst of all of this insanity, we somehow managed to finish season two of Dexter. LOVED IT! Seriously. If you're not familiar with the show, GET HIP! It's simply amazing, brilliantly written and perfectly casted. I'M IN LOVE WITH A SERIAL KILLER! Well wait, let me clarify. I am in love with my adorable Nick AND a made up fictional serial killer character on the best damn TV show ever! Except for House MD. of course! Nick doesn't mind. He understands my "television needs" and desires. :)
DINNER (meal #5) at 9:30.
The only thing that sounded good tonight was something that required NO COOKING or preparation of any kind. What does this mean? LEFTOVER CHILI FROM THE FREEZER OF COURSE! I'm so glad I made extra the other day. I had no desires at all for cooking tonight. I'm too consumed with cuddling, silliness, lovey dovey talk, wine, Dexter and lazyness. I guess you can say I'm taking the night off from the usual.
