Pumpkin Goodness and Badness
Yay finally Friday! I am sooo ready to sleep in tomorrow. I actually have to work in the morning but I am going to pretend that’s not real for the moment…
It is a gorgeous day in Utah! I snapped this picture on my way to work this morning – facing east as the sun comes over the mountains.
This morning’s breakfast was super pumpkin-y! I have a few cans of pumpkin left over from the holidays (left over or hoarded?? I’m not sure…) and was in the mood to put some of it to use today. I made a bowl of oatmeal with pumpkin, splenda and walnuts. I love pumpkin but I have to have a little sweetener otherwise I get this “baby food” type taste going on and I can’t stand it.
I also had a cup sip of Dunkin Donuts Pumpkin Spice coffee. I noticed all this holiday stuff on clearance (baking essentials, holiday spices, etc) at Target the other day and decided I’d give Dunkin Donuts their fair chance. A lot of blogs I read rant and rave about how great Dunkin’s coffee is – especially the pumpkin spice. (I’m looking at you Courtney!) So I tried it.
I should have known better you guys. I know I’m a coffee snob, but still. I smelled the coffee when I opened the bag. It stunk. Mack asked to smell it also. “That stinks mom! You drink that?!” So clearly we were off to a great start. I still brewed up a pot and poured myself a cup. I only had one sip though and that was enough. It’s like licking the end of a 9 volt battery – you have to do it once but it’s not something you want to do every morning. So, my three dollar bag of coffee is now in the trash. Sorry Courtney, I guess we have different taste when it comes to our coffee
At least my oatmeal was delicious!
Okay folks, I’ve got news about the physical therapy stuff but it will have to wait for a little bit – I have some ish to figure out. Meanwhile, I’m still rocking the upper body work, returning today to the arms and shoulders workout I did on Tuesday.
Nick gets home from Idaho tonight and I can’t wait to see him! I’m hoping to make a fun “welcome home” dinner but he might beat me home so we shall see how that works out. Have a great day!
