I’d like to begin this post with this ridiculous picture
and this one
My brother’s dog, Henry, is SO CUTE! You know what else is cute?
I met my nephew, Nicholas, today
Excuse the dorky look on my face- I thought I was going to break him. He was sleeping the whole time I was there. I wish I could sleep that much! I can’t believe that I’m an aunt. It’s a pretty ridiculous feeling and to prevent from getting all sappy on the blog, I’m going to start talking about food now.
This morning, after returning home from 30 minutes on the crossramp elliptical at the gym, I made this wonderful breakfast
I topped two Van’s Organic Waffles with a bit of real maple syrup, shredded coconut, blueberries and bananas. It was such a yummy weekend breakfast.
Dark Chocolate for dessert, of course!
I packed some snacks for my road trip down to my parents’ house/brother’s house today and back up to Albany tomorrow night
Let me reiterate how much I love the people over at LARABAR for sending me such an awesome variety of bars to try out! My brother and I split the Key Lime Pie when I got to his house. We both loved it! My brother had never heard of Larabars before but he’s definitely a new customer. (The PB Cookie is for tomorrow)
On the way down, I stopped at a rest stop to grab a Grande Non-Fat Pumpkin Spice Latte from Starbucks
I think I’m obsessed. Have you gotten one yet? (What are you waiting for?!?!?)
After meeting Nicholas, introducing my brother to Larabars, and snacking on some unpictured pieces of watermelon, my brother and I went on a 45 minute walk with Henry.
A big pot of Turkey Chili was simmering in a crock pot when I first got to my brother’s house
By the time we got back from our walk, it was ready to devour
It was delicious!
For dessert, I had two of these:
One chocolate, one vanilla.
Right now, I’m relaxing in my old bedroom at my parents’ house (weird!) and am about the go to sleep. I’m waking up bright and early tomorrow morning to:
- Tackle Google Reader
- Read for School
- Go out to breakfast with Dara for her birthday
- Do Level 1 of the 30 Day Shred (possibly)
Then I’m headed into the city (NY) to spend a day with my parents before I drive back up to Albany.
See you this time tomorrow night!
Do you have any baby relatives? Tell me about them!
