Not so bad After all

This weekend turned out to be not so bad after all! Yes, I was a little down last night because up until that point my weekend had been dominated by work… not fun! However, today I managed to get most of my to-do list accomplished, & for what didn’t get done… well, there’s always tomorrow, right?


After last night’s Chinese food, I decided it would be a good idea to start today off on a healthier note. And really, what’s a better healthy breakfast than oatmeal? 😉

In the mix:

  • 1/2 c. oats
  • Chopped apple
  • Chia seeds
  • Walnuts
  • Chocolate chips
  • Drizzle of honey

Served alongside a warm mug of Folgers Caramel Drizzle coffee!

After church, I headed to Target & the grocery store for my weekly “stock-up” when I came face-to-face with this:

Thomas’ Cranberry English Muffins!!!

If you haven’t tried these yet, go to your store immediately & pick up a bag for yourself! They are awesome, & are a seasonal item! They’ll be gone as quickly as they arrived, so you can bet I’ll be stock-piling my freezer for the next few weeks!


My parents had been away this weekend, & had picked up a few goodies for me, so they asked if I wanted to go out to dinner. (Chris has been gone all weekend too, but he’s coming home tonight so don’t try to come & kidnap me! 😉 )

We went to Red Robin where I got the prime rib sliders. I didn’t snap a photo, but by the wonder that is Google image search, I can show you someone else’s photo!


My parents had picked me up some cupcakes while they were away, so that’s what was for dessert!

These cupcakes are from JoJo’s Cupcakes and Cream in Easton, MD.

Chocolate, pumpkin, & red velvet!

I went right for the red velvet, & it certainly did not disappoint. I loved the cream cheese frosting. Really, does it get any better than cream cheese frosting?!

Chris better hope he gets home soon; I can’t make any promises there will be a cupcake left for him to sample!

And just because it’s Sunday & we’re gearing up for another week, I’ll leave you with a cute pug pic! This is Stewie’s “lookout.” Notice how he’s too lazy to actually stand, & sort of lays across the arm of the couch!

Silly pug!

I know this is next-to-impossible, but… favorite kind of cake? I might just have to go with red velvet!

    LOVE red velvet cake. But I’d have to say my that’s only my second favorite with cheesecake being #1. Actually, I think my number one would be red velvet cheesecake! All your eats look amazing, especially your oats!

    I had no idea Cranberry English Muffins even existed! Wow!

    Those cupcakes look glorious! I think picking a favorite type of cake is impossible! They are all so yummy! If I had to just choose one, it would probably be vanilla cake with PINK vanilla buttercream AND sprinkles.
