Over the top & other friday fun!

This morning was great bc I woke up really feelin’ yesterday’s kickboxing workout, my body had that “I know I did an awesome workout yesterday” feeling …. you know what I’m sayin’?  Not too sore, just definitely feeling worked.  Does anyone else really enjoy that “day after” affect?  Maybe I’m just a weird (but we already knew that right 😉 )

Onto the start to the day, which included my first experience with this guy


the sweetened vanilla flavor to be exact.  I used it to:

  • prepare my oats along with a banana, peanut butter & maple syrup
  • prepare my pumpkin spiced iced coffee

The verdict?  I LOVE IT!!!  It made my iced coffee taste divine 🙂 It also fared well in my morning oats…. winner winner almond brekkie.

The drive into work was fabulous as well – NO traffic!!!  A miracle from the traffic gods?  I think so.

So needless to say, this day got off to a great start and then I remembered it was Friday!  (okay I’m a terrible liar friends – and everyone I know already knows this haha – I realized that the second I rolled outta bed this morning 😉 )

Anywho, I crunched away at some work in le cubicle then had time for lunch which included leftovers from last night 🙂


Plus mustard for my sammie….


… and ketchup for my mac n’ cheesy 😛  Anyone else think this it is completely necessary to dip mac into ketchup?! (Kerri, I will automatically include your answer as YES ;))

  1. I love ketchup on cold mac and cheese leftovers! 🙂

    Congrats on your award!

  2. oh that picture with the dog is so stinking cute!! i love it! loved the one word answers too!! have fun tonight!!

  3. That’s one of the only reasons I buy almond milk – it makes coffee 100x betteR!!

  4. almond breeze is good! i used to drink that all the time last year…remember when i made spinach smoothies? i used this! delish. i could go for once of those right about now 🙂

    hopefully we can change the ‘missing someone’ soon! 😉

  5. I LOVE that after burn! Heck I even like to be so extremely sore that I can’t move…

    Ketchup on mac n cheese is a definite GO in my book…but after seeing my breakfasts you know I have a love affair with ketchup.

    Oh and thanks for the award lady! It’s going to be tough for my long-winded butt to answer something in one word 🙂

  6. happy Friday!

    i love almond milk, but not in hot coffee – it didn’t seem to do well.

  7. I can not even handle the bumble-dog! sooooo preshie!!

    almond milk totally takes a bowl of oats from ordinary to extraordinary.. I love!

  8. The pup dressed up is too cute. I can’t decide if I want to buy Olive a costume or not!

    You should also try the unsweetened vanilla almond milk- it’s the one I use and I love it. It’s still sweet but has 1/2 the calories! 🙂

    • I really wanted to buy Lucy a lobster costume I saw at Target… haha it was so freaking cute! However I decided that she may hate me forever if I do that to her, maybe I’ll just get a cute doggie tshirt thing of some sort 😉

      Oooo good tip about the unsweetened – I’ll check that one out next time!
