Did you check out my post about the weekend?
I took today off of work, kind of as my birthday present to myself. I have so much vacation time that it’s ok to take days off here and there, which is really nice. I was able to sleep in a couple of hours and it felt wonderful. It was such a COLD morning. I was wearing a long sleeved tee, a sweater, and a fleece jacket around the house and I was still cold!
I love my notes from hubby:
I stepped on the scale to see that my weight was only .2 above my weigh in. But I also weighed in about 3 hours later than normal. Hopefully I didn’t do too much damage this weekend and I can have a loss on weigh in day.
I started off by getting laundry started. I sure had my job set out for me!
For breakfast, I ate a mini whole wheat bagel with pumpkin spice cream cheese, an egg, and a glass of milk. We were all out of fruit.
And then I sipped on some coffee with pumpkin spice creamer.
I got some things done around the house and scheduled some appointments.
And then I got started on some work for job #2. I guess I didn’t have the day COMPLETELY off. But Mondays is my deadline and I had to finish up some work from Friday. It didn’t take me too long.
Hubby needed me to run an errand for him in a nearby town, so I headed out to do that. I decided to grab lunch at Subway and eat it on my drive to another town to do some shopping and stop at the office.
I ate a 6” turkey and ham sub with baked BBQ Lays.
I did some shopping, but didn’t find a lot to buy. I have birthday money in my pocket and it’s burning a hole.
I did pick up this album for $5 though.
I found some things at a consignment store that I ended up getting free since I they owed me money for clothing I had sold.
I picked up some groceries for the week. I got a few fun things!
I love Chia seeds!
And blue cheese dressing.
This pineapple salsa was on sale for 99 cents. I’ll come up with some way to use it!
Locally roasted coffee beans. Yummy.
And a butter nut squash!
And before heading home I stopped at Starbucks to use this lovely thing!
You can bet I got something expensive. I got a nonfat venti iced salted caramel mocha with no whip.
I drank half and brought the rest home to hubby. Like my watch? Hubby got it for me for my birthday! LOVEEEE!!
He has good taste, huh?
Hubby and I had to go help the inlaws haul some things tonight, so we headed out there. I got my birthday gift, which included these things:
Here are hubby and I in the truck.
Hubby’s parents took us out for supper. I had soup, a dinner roll, grilled chicken and fruit. I also came with a small scoop of ice cream. I didn’t get pictures of these.
However, I did snap a picture as we were driving. This is what Iowa looks like these days. Harvest time. It’s actually very pretty this time of year with all of the autumnal colors.
Today was kind of an odd day. I didn’t get all of my fruits/veggies in today. I will do better tomorrow!
