Good morning everyone!

Oooo, I wanted to show you – some of you noticed on Friday night – I got some new decor in my kitchen!

A giant spoon and fork! Aren’t they the coolest?! Ben and I stumbled on the greatest little kitchen gadget and home decor shop while in New Orleans called Roux Royale, and I couldn’t stop oogling these babies. Sneaky Ben gave them a call while I was out getting my NOLA Starbucks mug and had a set shipped to our house for my anniversary gift! I LOVE THEM!!! (and him ;) )

Ben wants to use them for a massive platter of spaghetti, or a giant bowl of cereal. I’m sorry, but that’d be hilarious. Don’t get me wrong – it’s not happening – but it’d be hilarious!

Onto breakfast! It’s going to be a warm one today – 78 degrees! – and I wanted something light and refreshing.


That includes some Multigrain Cheerios with Unsweetened Vanilla Almond Breeze,


and a banana to slice in. 


Plus a cool and refreshing Lemon Cream Torte yogurt. I haven’t had this flavor in awhile – it’s awesome!


Lunch is so colorful and full of great textures – a Kitchen Sink Salad!


In the mix:

  • Mixed greens
  • Cucumber
  • Carrots
  • Reduced sodium deli turkey
  • Peanuts
  • Blackberries


They were practically giving berries away at the grocery store this weekend – especially strawberries. I read that there are an abundance of strawberries coming from Florida (I think) which is why the prices are so low right now. Sweet!


I took a new bottle of Annie’s Lite Raspberry Vinaigrette to work, to dress my salad. It’s easier to keep an entire bottle there, instead of bringing a single serving in a small tupperware everyday!


And some Lime + Salt Popcorn for my afternoon snack. Buttery, salty, with just a hint of lime. All that’s missing is a Corona.


Oh you guys, remember when I told you about Alex & Mina – the couple who quit their jobs, sold their house, and are now traveling the world?! (I know) Well, they put out a call for people’s “wanderlists” on their blog – a listing of 10 places you have to do/see in the world before you die – and they posted mine yesterday! Check it out:

1. Spend a weekend at the hot springs in Hakone, Japan.

2. Go to the top of the tallest building in the world – the Burj Khalifa – in Dubai

3. Spend a week in Kyoto, Japan during the Cherry Blossom Festival.

4. Visit the pyramids in Egypt.

5. Go on safari in Kenya.

6. Explore the ancient city of Petra in Jordan.

7. Scuba dive on the Great Barrier Reef.

8. Spend a month doing nothing, but eating, in Italy.

9. Go to (and participate in!) the La Tomatinatomato fight in Bunyol, Spain.

10. Swim with the dolphins in Zanzibar, Tanzania.

Tell me, what are 2-3 things on your “wanderlist”?

Have a wonderful Monday! :D
