Good almost afternoon everyone!

During the week I frown and pout when it’s cloudy and cool out, but on Sundays…I kind of like it sometimes. I know that seems kind of backwards since it’s the weekends where I’m able to get out during the day, etc. But sometimes I like just hanging out in my kitchen with the back door open, listening to the birdies, with a nice cool breeze rolling in :)

So yesterday afternoon after my bike ride, all my plans went bust because I got SUCKED into watching The Real Housewives of New Jersey! Eeeeeeek…yeah. I seriously think I watched four five episodes. When I looked at the clock and it was 6:00 I said – mmm yeah, I need to get up and do something!

I took a trip to the craft store to look around and get some things, then I picked up some spicy Kung Pao Chicken for dinner!



This was so fresh, all white meat and you can’t really see it – but it had some great veggies in there.


Don’t worry I didn’t eat the chili pepper. I do love shaking them though so you can hear all the little seeds rattling around in there!


Since I watched TRHONJ all afternoon, I didn’t make it to the grocery store so I got up early and went today…not before I had some of the best coffee of my life though! I order coffee from Boca Java – they’ve got the best flavored coffee, it’s insane. Today I opened up a package of Chocolate Hazelnut Heaven and just about melted when I took my first sip. It was sooooooo amazing!! Tasted like chocolate peanut butter…HELLO!!!


I had my coffee in my cool “K” mug that my Mother in Law got me from Florida!

So I skipped on breakfast this morning because I wasn’t hungry…weird! I never skip breakfast because I’m always hungry in the morning, but if I’m not hungry, I’m not going to force feed myself. Plus my mom and I are going to an early lunch in about 30 minutes before we go see…Mama Mia the Musical!!! AHHHH!!!!!!

You guys – remember when you were 12 and an awesome movie came out and you got the movie poster, the Happy Meal with the special movie toy inside and just in general went a little gaga over it? Umm, yeah, that was me after seeing Mama Mia the movie. I like, wanted there to be Mama Mia action toys or something. Ok…not really but you know what I mean! The movie is SO fabulous and I just love Amanda Seyfried. She has got the most incredible, pure, sweet sounding voice I have ever heard. I listened to the soundtrack on repeat for like a month after it came out!

So needless to say, I am SO jazzed to go see the musical today!! I’ll report back and let you know how it is.

Ooo look at the time, I need to jet. Have a great afternoon everyone!! :D
