I swear, since moving to a 10 hour, 4 day work week, I feel like my life is flying by at the speed of light. I don’t know why, and I don’t know if it’s a good or a bad thing. Don’t get me wrong – 4 day work week? WIN. Life passing by so quickly? The jury’s still out… Do you also feel like the older you get, the faster time flies? Eeek – there’s still so much left to do!
At any rate, I took the morning to sleep in ’til 7:30 (you know you’re getting old (or crazy?) when that’s considered “sleeping in”!) grabbed some coffee and a meeting, ran some errands, then almost got the rest of my Christmas shopping done – WHEEE!!!!
I’m still in the “almost” category because, between my two brothers and Ben’s two brothers, I have three brothers left to shop for. Why, oh why, is it SO gosh darn hard to pick out gifts for boys?! Maybe you can help me. They range in age from 20 to 30, with a WIDE variety of interests. Aka, anything goes. Any ideas?
I was famished after shopping, so I whipped up a Southwestern Egg Scramble for lunch!
That’d be seasoned ground beef leftover from last night’s dinner, topped with 3 scrambled egg whites seasoned with salt, pepper & hot sauce, topped with cheddar cheese and salsa!
I debated heating up a couple tortillas for a little breakfast burrito action, but was craving toast.
Shhh, don’t tell, but I have a dirty little secret called I’m currently obsessed with buttering things with a whole stick of butter. HAAAA!
Sorry, but it’s so convenient and it feels naughty and fun. In reality, I end up using way less butter than I would if I was using a tub of butter too. Yes!
A perfect edible utensil for chowing my scramble.
