What made me smile today

16 Jun

1) An energizing breakfast including a green monster with milk, baby spinach, vanilla protein, cold coffee, cinnamon and ice and low fat protein pancakes topped with banana, nectarine and blueberries

2) Eating brown rice and actually enjoying it. I like brown rice but it never tastes the same as you when you get it out. I made mine with low sodium chicken brother and added grilled mushrooms, onions and sun-dried tomatoes

3) Finding out that everything at Reid’s (a local supermarket going out of business) had the entire store 40%!!!!  And when I say entire store-I mean everything (hooch included) Check out the goods I got—all for 45 bones!

I even snuck a bottle of wine into work 🙂 I wish I could break into this at work but I know I wouldn’t stop at one and then I would start telling people what I really thought about them.

4) Having a Diet Mountain Dew in the afternoon and not caring if it will keep me up all night

5) Lincoln!!

6) Sushi

7) Indulging in my favorite snack-Snyder’s Hot Buffalo Wing Pretzel Pieces

    I need to come to your house for breakfast because that looks AMAZING!!! And you hit the nail on the head with one of my favorite things….Buffalo Wing Pretzels. I love those things!

    Today my smiles came from my kiddos and the fact that we are so close to being done unpacking this house!! Woohoo!

      If you’re ever in NC let me know 🙂

      I feel you on the unpacking but I am a 180 from you—worrying about packing, getting boxes and wondering how I accumulated so much crap!

      Thanks, that’s my favorite too. I am happy if I can get one of him where he doesn’t look like he just smoked a bowl lol, he doesn’t feel like being photogenic all the time!

    The fact that the sun came out. After a few days of gross and cloudy. I smiled. 🙂

    And then of course your pics of Lincoln always crack me up a little! Too cute…

    That is a major score! I wish I could find a grocery store that was going out of business. Glad you were able to find some great items!

    jealous of that ridic sale!! tribal hummus is pretty yummy! Doesnt taste like sabra..it’s like MORE mediterranian or something..tell me what you think. What made me smile yesterday was interviewing a guy who i might hire! WOO HOOOO

    • simplyshaka June 17, 2010 at 9:33 pm #

      Can’t wait to try it! They have a few more hummus containers left but they are funky flavors like horseradish and lemon so they can either be really good or really bad. Not sure I am ready to take that chance though!

    trying to think of a list of places for us to hit on Mari Mo and Tiffy day.. MMT. TMT. TMM. which one is best. Too bad Mari’s name doesnt start with an I… then our group would be TMI. hahaha

    • simplyshaka June 17, 2010 at 9:30 pm #

    I had great pizza at lunch. Organic, too (thank you Jules). That made me smile : )

  13. Jenna June 17, 2010 at 6:44 pm #

    That is an impressive breakfast! Ah I LOOOVE sushi, so jealous.

    Fro-yo made me smile today! I also smiled when I realized my fiance packed me a packet of Crystal Light that makes like 8 cups with my lunch instead of the “on-the-go” tiny little pack I had in mind. So sillyyyy

    • simplyshaka June 17, 2010 at 9:50 pm #

      The crystal light would definitely make me smile. I seriously need to buy stock in it since I drink so much of it!

    Ah! What a yummy post. I still haven’t tried Sushi.

    • simplyshaka June 17, 2010 at 9:27 pm #

      Oh no–why not?? I couldn’t live without sushi.

      And thanks for the Lincoln love, I’ll let him know he has a fan!
