Last night, as the cold rain continued to fall, Ben and I got a craving for a hot cup o’ joe, so we headed to our nearest Starbucks for a steamy drink. We were walking out when this guy and a girl walk in. The guy is normal looking enough, but this girl is decked out in full hair and makeup. We’re talking glitter, hair extensions, teeny-tiny outfit – the works. Obviously this girl had something more going on then just getting coffee.
All of the sudden Ben starts freaking out. He runs over to the girl and is all “I can’t believe it’s really you! What are you doing here? OMG!!!” On and on…and on and on. I nab the guy to ask him who she is. I’d never seen her in my life, but according to my husband’s actions – she was a big deal! He goes “She’s a member of the Pussycat Dolls!!”
Hmmm, what?! Cool!! But, what is a single member of the Pussycat Dolls doing at a Starbuck’s in the ‘burbs, on a Monday night? And, besides that, why is my husband going so freaking crazy? It was like she was his favorite celebrity in the entire world! How does he even know who the Pussycat Dolls are?! Just as I was about to tell him to stop hugging this girl and give it a rest, MY favorite actress in the world – Amanda Seyfreid – walked in the door. OMG!!!!!!!
Obviously, if you haven’t figured it out, this was alllll just a dream. HA!!! It’s true! I never remember my dreams, but for some reason I woke up laughing and the dream has remained so clear in my head. I guess 10 hours of sleep will do that for you. Oh yes, I went to bed at 8:00 last night, and didn’t wake up until 6:00 this morning. It was glooooorious!
Even more glorious, was the bowl of Blueberry-Banana Overnight Oats that were waiting for me in the fridge for breakfast!
In the mix:
- 1/3 cup old fashioned oats
- 1 Vanilla Fat-Free Yogurt
- Splash of almond milk
- 1/2 Tablespoon chia seeds
- 1 banana (1/2 smashed in to the oats, 1/2 sliced on top)
Someone asked me awhile ago, how my bananas don’t get brown overnight. The answer is, they do – these are pictures of the bowl before it goes into the fridge overnight! Truth be told, they aren’t that brown in the morning – and even if they have a little color on them, it doesn’t effect the taste one bit. Still creamy, cool and sweet!
I’m so excited for the insane amount of veggies I will be eating in today’s Vegetable Salad I brought for lunch!
In the mix:
- Mixed greens
- Dried cranberries
I keep a bottle of salad dressing at work so I can just splash it on as needed. I’ll be finishing up my Annie’s Lite Raspberry Vinaigrette today, and will get to try some of my new Trader Joe’s dressings next time!
Here’s a litte tip – chop once, enjoy twice. I actually made two of these salads last night, since it’s easier to cut up twice the amount of veggies at once, then haul everything back out in a couple days to make another salad.
I also packed a serving of Trader Joe’s Peanut Butter Filled Pretzels.
Ugh, these are so good!!
I actually don’t love regular pretzels – but flavored with peanut butter, cheese, or those butter-flavored pretzels?? I’m all over those!
Today, God willing, it’s supposed to remain sunny, but a little cool. I am DYING to go for a run and dive into some more yoga sessions! I’ve tried, I think, 5 different classes, and they’ve all left me with a new (good) feeling of soreness afterwards. I love that yoga works muscles that my normal workouts don’t!
Do you dream very often? How crazy do they get? Do you remember them afterwards?
Like I said – I NEVER remember my dreams, so I don’t even know if they’re crazy or not. Ben, on the other hand, has the most insane dreams and can tell you every single detail about them. I’m a little jealous of that, actually!
