Happy Wednesday! Today I just wanted to share a few of the little things that are making me happy this week. When I get super busy, it’s easy to get stressed and focus on the things I wish I could change. Instead, I try to concentrate on those small things that make me smile throughout the week.
Here are a few things I’m smiling about this morning:
Pumpkin Pie Spice creamer. This stuff is amazing and costs way less than a PSL, which I definitely can’t buy every day. I save so much money by brewing my own coffee in my office (though it does give the impression I’m a coffee addict), and I try to have several different creamers to keep it interesting.
Office flowers! The lady at Food Lion just randomly gave me free flowers yesterday at the checkout, so now my office can look even prettier.
Trader Joe’s freezer section. Last night I came home from work the same way I always do: starving. I was able to make a super tasty dinner in 20 minutes thanks to Trader Joe’s. I made their vegetable quinoa, crab cakes, and crab-stuffed flounder. Topped with a little sriracha and we were good to go!
New books! I’m reading Fragile, by Lisa Unger right now and I’m loving it. It’s not really a new book (it’s been out for a couple years I think), but I’ve read a few by her that I liked. I’m only about halfway through, but I love looking forward to my quiet reading time before bed every night.
Workout & Breakfast
This morning I got to the gym right at opening time to get in some cardio and abs. I did 35 minutes on the adaptive motion trainer doing intervals, then grabbed a mat and did some ab work. Nothing fancy, just some crunches, side crunches, kick-downs, and planks.
It’s gross and rainy outside today so I was craving something savory for breakfast. I also knew Riley had an early day at work so I figured I’d make him some breakfast too. I scrambled some eggs with home fries, onions, peppers, mushrooms, and tomatoes. I also heated up a biscuit to go with mine and it hit the spot!
Now I’m off to work for the day! This rain isn’t going anywhere, so I’m looking forward to starting my work day with a hot cup of pumpkin-y coffee and hoping for a calm day so I can just stay in my cozy office and get work done.
Have a great day!
