Good morning! :)

I got all my packing done last night so I’m ready to hit the road after work on Friday. We have a family wedding to attend a couple hours away, and the exciting part is that Ben’s parents will be there too! It’s the first time we’ve seen them since they moved to Washington DC in June. I can’t believe they’ve been gone for almost 5 months – it’s CRAZY how time flies!

In other news, I harnessed the power of cereal’s most delicious ally, Unsweetened Vanilla Almond Breeze, and generously poured it over some Special K Red Berries with added Fiber for breakfast!


Foodbuzz sent me a box of this cereal to try and, although I don’t love Special K products because they tend to have some funky items in the ingredient list, I do have a soft spot in my heart for those red berries, so I gave it a try…


Mmmm berries…


Anyways, the texture of this cereal is like really crispy and airy Wheaties. It’s definitely got more girth than regular Special K, because of the added fiber, and overall if you like normal Special K, I bet you’d like this too!


I packed some leftover Cheesy Chicken Pot Pie for lunch.


I think Ben said it best, “If you didn’t tell me there was cheese in there, I wouldn’t know. I would just think there was something a little special going on.” Aka – this isn’t a cheese bomb, a la Classic Mac & Cheese, it’s more a subtle hint.


In addition to the frozen veggies, I also threw in some leftover roasted green beans, but you could add frozen hashbrowns, asparagus, broccoli – any extra veggies you have in the fridge, really!


Rounded out with a big, Honeycrisp Apple. I hope you aren’t sick of seeing these babies, because they’re going to be around all Fall. HA! ;)

WONDERFUL husband – Happy Birthday!!! Awww – isn’t he the cutest?! FYI he literally forgot it was his birthday until I reminded him 2 days ago…what?! ;)


The birthday boy has requested that I join him for happy hour after work, then I think we’re going to go out for dinner. That’s always the good thing about birthdays – a guaranteed night out! :D

Have a great day everyone!
