Cupcake Heaven

I started my day yesterday by sleeping in until 6:50am Thumbs up It was still so dark out I was surprised it was so late!  I am still in-love with Spring forward.

A small banana, 1 tbsp. natural peanut butter and sprinkle of cinnamon. I heated it in the microwave for 30 seconds.

I had a smaller breakfast because I knew we were going to be having cupcakes later that afternoon.  Hey, save where you can!

The boys went for their donuts and brought me home a surprise!

Non-fat Misto and two donut holes

It was 3, but Aidan wanted “a taste” – then proceeded to stuff an entire hole in his mouth.

Please do not be offended by my Cullenesque skin.  I am hoping to still look 30 when I am 50.

Dress: Target (the one I got on this day)

I am not sure where the accessories came from; I have had them forever.  I’m wearing gold beaded dangly earrings too.  Sorry you can’t see them.

Watch: Fossil

We saw The Lorax

These were my dates

The Lorax was a super cute movie.  I can’t believe I have never read it.  I loved all the bright colors and the characters where so funny!  I really liked how it touched on consumerism and also on how just one person can change the world.   I love Dr. Suess & am putting the Lorax on the to-buy list.  I have been meaning to take A to B&N, that gives me an idea for Saturday!  Open-mouthed smile

Lunch was at one of my favorite places

We hadn’t been there in so long, but I think we will be going back more often.  I forgot how much I love it!  I was very sad though because we never got their famous bread basket.  However, we were waiting for a long time before our server came over and to apologize she brought us a to-go box with 4 gigantic muffins.  I can’t complain about that!   I WILL be sure to ask for the basket next time though.  It was the reason I chose Mimi’s.

I chose their Grilled Veggie Flatbread: Whole wheat flatbread with zucchini, red onions, mushrooms, red peppers, tomatoes and hummus. Served with baby greens and fat-free balsamic vinaigrette

It was huge.  I ate all of the greens which had a delicious dressing and half of the wrap.  I packed up the rest to eat for dinner.  It was pretty good.  Not as flavorful as I expected.  Next time I am getting what Jeremy had.

The Veggie Burger.

YUM! Served with fresh fruit.  The cantaloupe and honeydew were superb!

We then went to Kirkland’s to see about finding a mirror and a few other things I have been looking for but Aidan was being a brat a challenge so we decided to head to our final stop.

My favorite “Keep Calm” saying.  I have a bookmark that says this!

L-R: Peanut Butter Cup, Cookies ‘n Cream, Almond Joy-ish

Oh……..heavens.  Words can not describe how decadent these ALL were.

I chose the Almond Joy-ish.  I did scrape off most of the frosting, not because it wasn’t good.  It’s just that too much of a good thing can be bad.


….and this is the TRUTH.

We came home after the cupcakes.  I made a quick grocery list and then left do the grocery shopping.  It was easy this week because Luke is out of town & Jeremy is working his long week. We don’t require fancy meals.  It’s so late and Jeremy is so tired by the time he gets home from work, he doesn’t care what he eats, as long as it doesn’t take too long to get in his belly so he can get in bed.  Works for me!

Dinner was the other part of my wrap.  For dessert I cut all the muffins from lunch in half.  Put one half on a plate and heated them up and the other halves back in the refrigerator.  Jeremy and I shared and even sharing half of the muffins was muffin overload. They were muffins on steroids

Over muffins, Jeremy and I had a deep and emotional conversation about life that left me completely exhausted.  I both love and hate conversations like that!  You better believe I was ready for bed after all that!


These are totally my cats.

My favorite day

Sundays are my favorite.  Sundays are for all of my favorite things to do.

  • church
  • treats
  • baking
  • cleaning
  • sometimes napping

I got up at my usual time, 5am, but it was hard.  Really hard.  I sat there on the bed for a good 5 minutes before I forced myself up.  I guess the two hour coma nap I got yesterday was not enough to catch me up from the night before.   I will confess that I need a lot of sleep to power through the long days.  I think its from the lack of sleep I got during the “lost years” after Aidan was born!  That or I am just getting old.  Once I was up and had some coffee I was feeling like myself again.

After church on Sundays, the boys and I stop for donuts, chocolate milk and coffee.  Oh glorious day!

Aidan and I shared.  The donuts, not the Misto 🙂

On the agenda for today

  • “weekly cleaning” – vacuuming, dusting, mopping
  • baking –  Jamie’s protein bars : today I am going to try to use banana baby food instead of carrots in one batch.  Good luck to me!

Although I am in sweats now…here was my outfit for church

  • Sweater- Merona from Target
  • Jeggings – 7 for all man kind
  • Boots – Airwalk – Payless from about 5 years ago.  Funny thing about those boots is that I got them because they were the only ones I could find to fit my calves.  Now they are really big and are “slouchy”
  • Jewelry you can’t see: big fake square diamond earrings and my white Fossil watch.

Sundays are supposed to be my treat days.  The days where I allow myself to eat all day long everything I know I am not supposed to.  I don’t know why but there isn’t really anything I am wanting. I did want those donuts though.  My appetite was lacking last night too.  When I woke up it was about 6pm and I just felt off.  Probably because I slept so hard, also when I fell asleep it was light and when I woke up it was dark.  I did make myself have a little something

I had the yogurt I was going to have at lunch but added chia seeds, almonds and Honey Bunches of Oats cereal to make it a little more nutritiously substantial without adding too much bulk.  It was perfect.  I am more than sure by 4pm I will be ravenous.  One can only hope, after all its TREAT DAY!
