Finally out & About!

Happy Saturday! Hope you’ve all enjoyed a great day. I was up and at’er early this morning because we had an hour drive to the hockey game. The boys tied one and lost one yesterday and then they lost again today. Boo! The score was 3-2…so close. Anyway, the loss put them out of the tournament so we were back home by 2pm.

I knew it would be a bit of time between breakfast and lunch so I made a dense one; 100_7471

  • 1/2 cup water & USVAB
  • 1/2 cup Quaker oats
  • cinnamon
  • raisins
  • tbsp almond butter 100_7470

This stayed with me for 5ish hours. Mission accomplished!

Lunch was a bowl of leftover turkey chilli from Thursday night with some grated marble cheese on top. 100_7472

I also had a Dr. Kracker cracker which was used as a scoop. 100_7473

After lunch I took DS to the mall with me to buy a few more Christmas presents. Usually DD goes with me, but she went to the game this morning and I don’t want to push my luck with her recovery. Besides, it’s cool to hang with my little dude! Before leaving (and getting conned into buying a video game) I stopped at Starbucks for a NF pumpkin spice latte; 100_7478

Then we hit the grocery store because lasagna was requested for dinner tonight (and I was feeling too lazy to make my own). DS picked a meat & cheese filled one (eeek!!) so I grabbed this Amy’s one for me; 100_7476

Just to clarify, I have nothing against meat and cheese, I just don’t like the 2 in large amounts. I also bought this Nature’s Path banana almond cereal after reading about it in this month’s Clean Eating magazine;


I’m excited to try it out!! And I couldn’t resist these golden raspberries that were on sale!! 100_7477

Too bad they had to travel SO FAR to get to my table, though. :( They actually became my “dessert”. YUM!

Before I forget….Cassie gave me an award last week!!! Beautifulbloggeraward150x150_thumb

THANKS! If you haven’t checked Cassie’s blog, A Pinch of This and a Dash of That….you must! She’s got some great Christmas stuff happening each day in December!!

I wasn’t terribly hungry come dinner time so I only ate 1/2 my lasagna and one piece of garlic bread; 100_7480

The kids dug right into their plates! 100_7482 100_7481

This is probably the most DD has eaten since last Sunday.

My parents should be here soon for a visit. I’m enjoying one of my favourite teas while I wait. 100_7479

I’ll leave you tonight with 3 photos that were taken of DS at the game today. There were some professional photographers there and after the game the picture’s they took were available to buy. We couldn't pass up these 3! ENJOY! -3029 -3027 -3028
