Wednesday Eats and a Thursday Morning Early 90’s Fun

Good Morning and Happy Thursday everyone 🙂

Thursday’s have always been my late days, but as of late {pun intended} they have also been my Friday.   I don’t know if I’ve mentioned this previously, but one of the many perks of my new position is a schedule of four tens {four 10 hour days versus five 8 hour days}.  Considering my drive is noticeably further, this is HUGE. One less day of driving, and consistent long weekends.   Let’s just say I was stoked when this new schedule was presented to me as an option, and it didn’t take long for me to say heck yes.

Yesterday’s Eats

Yeah, I dominated that container.  Once full of fresh fruit and veggies – but the end of the morning scraps that didn’t look appetizing.  Don’t worry, the rest was wonderful 🙂

They had Clif bars at my training the previous day which are NOT gluten friendly.  I couldn’t stop thinking about them since, so I went out and got myself a KIND bar.  Surprisingly a little sweet, but I still had no problem dominating it.

Let’s not talk about these cookies, because I may need to go grab more right now if I do.  Seriously, to all my friends gluten free or not, go find these.  Yum.  I am LOVING all these new products I am finding {not necessarily healthy, but man my carb cravings were on FIRE yesterday}.


Tried another new-to-me simple {new to be} kitchen staple.  Annies, your shells and cheese are no joke,

I added some squash that we baked to the pasta and then had some fresh veggies on the side and topped it all with a hunk of Zach’s steak.  Delish.  Only problem is there wasn’t more!


I believe Zach’s comment said it best about these cookies I got from an adorable bakery in Aurora.

“These taste like real cookies”

Terrible picture, but this double chocolate cookies from Derby Bakery were like cakey delicious heaven in edible form.   I gotta work on restricting this sweet tooth of mine.  #itsaproblem

  1. I would love to work a 4 day week but it’s just not compatible with my husband being away so much. All I can think about is what I could get done in that one extra day with the girls still in day care! Enjoy your long weekend girl!

  2. i have a major, problematic obsession with those gf ginger snaps (also the animal crackers, but gingers come in way first). like, i can’t even buy them anymore bc the bag lasts, like, 3 days. tops. they’re so goooood. and 3-day wknds are amazeballssss, i’d take that in a heartbeat. how far is your commute now babes?

  3. I love Annie’s Mac and cheese! Did you know they have easy Mac versions too? So awesome! Also, Kind bars are my fav grab breakfast 🙂
