The Little Things #5

Sorry for the long delayed post today.   It has been far too long since I’ve done a “Little Things” post, and the weather is cold and rainy, so I figured a “Little Things” post will brighten up the day a bit!

So, here we go.

The Little Things Making Me Happy Today:

1.  The yummy pumpkin scones I made this morning, thanks to Jessica at HowSweetItIs.  I had half of the smallest one this morning with my Kashi GoLean Crunch + vanilla soymilk + almond butter + pumpkin butter.

IMG_3496IMG_34972.  Putting leftovers to good use!

3.  My plans to set a new PDR with my 7 mile run this afternoon.

4.  Half of my mom’s side of the family has already reserved their hotel rooms for our wedding weekend. 🙂

5.  Sending a gift to one of my favorite bloggers just because.

Just finished my “Run” Glo-Bar, so I guess that means its time to head home and get ready for my run!

The Little Things #4

Sorry for my lack of posts this morning, everyone.  I was crossing lots of items off my major to-do lists!

IMG_3188Yes, that is part of my to-do list for the next week.  Crazy! Although all those “early” items you see are things I want to try to get done before I go to LA, so it will be worth it. 🙂  This is my master to-do list.  I also have a to-do list just for today, though I just realized it may have been a bit too ambitious… oops!


This to-do list calls for a “Little Things” post, so here we go!

The Little Things That Are Making Me Happy Today.

  1. Getting some much-needed “best friend time” by having a delicious breakfast with Kelley this morning!
  2. Celebrating “Starbucks Friday” a day early.  I needed a change of scenery for my studying!
  3. Awake Tea Lattes with Pumpkin Syrup.
  4. Not having to cancel a huge food order for SWE and thereby give myself way more work to do than I have time for.
  5. Getting to cross things off my massive to-do list.
  6. The fact that I am inside and warm, instead of outside in cold rain.
  7. The fact that plane tickets from Milwaukee (where Kelley will likely live) to where I will likely live are only $200.
  8. Dinner with friends tonight.
  9. Getting a pair of tights so I don’t freeze on Saturday’s bike ride.
  10. The fact that I’m going to L.A. one week from tomorrow!
  11. Being done with logistics issues for SWE for the day.
  12. Finding a potential job lead in the same city that Dan & I are likely moving to.
  13. Eat.Sweat.Blog. starts today!

The little things that are making me happy today:

1.  Actually remembering to take a picture of my breakfast today:

IMG_3108Quinoa, leftover applesauce, almond butter. Delicious, if not very photogenic…

2.  The creation of what I deem “Starbucks Fridays,” ala Tina’s Cookie Fridays and Jenna’s Scone Fridays.

3.  Being able to wear clothes that I didn’t fit into last year:

4.  Getting a full 8 hours of sleep two nights in a row.

5.  Falling asleep cuddling with Dan last night.

6.  Getting the new Dan Brown book from the library!

7.  Thursday “date nights” with Kelley–love having time set aside to chill with my best friend and watch some of our favorite shows!
