I’ve gotten tons of positive feedback about doing a post about how Paul and I met, so look out for that one sometime in the next week. Thanks everyone for the supportive comments! Also, I’ll try to include as many pictures as possible, but Paul and I are not a photogenic couple…haha! Seriously, though! Here’s the first picture we ever took together. It was taken about 9 months before we started dating.
Anyway, thank goodness it’s Friday. This has been a crazy long week, and I can’t wait to sleep in a bit tomorrow. I forgot to mention this yesterday, but Paul’s brother’s girlfriend just had a baby yesterday, making Paul an uncle for the first time! The little baby is named Brandon, he’s a little over 8 pounds and about 22 inches. I can’t wait to meet him!
Onto my new obsession: Cascadian Farm Maple Brown Sugar Granola.
So far, I’ve only added it to my yogurt and eaten it as a cereal with milk, but I just can’t get enough! The flavors are phenomenal, and even though I’ve always liked brown sugar and maple separately, adding them together creates a crazy taset in your mouth…crazy, but good crazy.
I’m trying to think of new ways to eat it, and I’m thinking of creating a breakfast bowl, kind of like the ones all you awesome bloggers make all the time. Do you have any ideas of what I should include in the breakfast bowl?
I finished off the last of the quinoa in lunch today. It’s becoming my favorite grain. I just love how tiny the kernels are.
My mom made a chicken and tomato dish that she originall had on pasta. But I didn’t want to let the quinoa just sit in the fridge, so I tossed it in along with some cooked peas…and voila!
Crisp cucumber made its way back into my lunch, along with the rest of my yellow and red bell peppers. I also had a string cheese and apple bites on the side. Cheese and fruit is one of the best snacks on the planet!
Time for me to get going now. But first, did anyone hear Lady Gaga’s new song, “Born This Way,” today? I’m a huge Gaga fan, and I think the song is great because it’s all about accepting yourself and others no matter what race, religion, sexual orientation or ethnic group you are. But I did think it sounded awfully like Madonna’s “Express Yourself” and “Vogue.” Even Gaga herself sounded much more like Madonna than she has in the past. Still a great song though!
What do you think of Gaga’s song? If you make breakfast bowls, what do you put in them? Do you have a favorite granola/granola cereal?
