My temperature gauge…I guess what you would call a thermometer…is reading 65 right now! My morning Mom walk was dreamily reminiscent of a cool, crisp Fall morning and I was actually cold in my Barney Butter t-shirt (love that shirt!) Not that I’m wishing Fall upon myself or anything, because I am NOT ready for summer to end. Are you?
No, I have spent far too little time on my back deck, sipping cool liquids, for summer to be over. Because that’s how I measure when I’m ready to usher in Fall – the amount of time I’ve spent outside on back decks.
Something that was photographed on my back deck – breakfast! Fruit & Greek Yogurt Bowl!
In the mix:
- Pineapple Chobani Greek Yogurt
- 1/2 banana
- Nature’s Path Pumpkin Flax Plus Granola
Did you know there are no naturally blue foods in existence? Blueberries and blue potatoes are technically purple. Did you also know that the color blue is supposedly an appetite suppressant?
No worries, my appetite was fully intact as I devoured this.
Lunch is centered around this baby – MaraNatha Creamy Almond Butter with a Hint of Sea Salt. I’m loving this mild and luscious almond butter more and more each time I use it.
So much so, that it’s worked its way into every component of my lunch!
Such as a doughy Thin Bun generously smeared with the stuff,
a crunchy Pink Lady Apple patiently waiting to be dunked in it,
and some…peanut butter filled pretzels. Ok, they’re not filled with almond butter,
but the crumbs from the bag made excellent almond butter scoopers.
In other news, check out my newest purchase – a contact lens carrying case! You know you’re getting old when you get as pumped as I was at the eye doctor yesterday when I spied this baby for purchase!
I’ve worn glasses since I was in 3rd grade, and worn contacts since I was in 7th. Without them, I am blind as a bat. We’re talking, must hold hand no further than 5 inches away from face to be able to see it, blind.
Somehow, this adorable travel case makes having to wear contacts, just a teeny bit better.
Probably because it’s like a miniature glasses case. I LOVE miniature things! Such as mini snickers, mini watermelons and mini babybel cheeses.
Ok, I’m super excited that it’s Friday and I hope you are too. We have a fun wedding to head to this weekend, but tonight is totally free. We’ll see what we come up with!
Wishing you a fabulous day!
Do you wear glasses or contacts, or were you blessed with good vision?
Where I’m stumbling around without my glasses, Ben has 100% perfect vision. Hopefully our children inherit their Dad’s eyeballs!
