Hey guys how’s your Saturday going? Any big plans for Halloween? 🙂 I’m planning to hole up on the couch tonight and watch Castle on TiVo – that’s about all the excitement I’m looking for this weekend. My little sister’s in town and she’s dressing up and doing the party thing so I’ll just live vicariously through her. 🙂
Work today was painfully slow. I actually had to leave the office on my lunch break just to get out and wake up a little (we’re only open for a few hours on Saturdays so I never leave the office on my lunch break let alone get one most weeks). The lack of activity was definitely uncharacteristic – everyone must be busy getting ready for Halloween. We did, however, have a few pets who were getting into the spirit early.
I ran out mid-day to grab a soy pumpkin spice latte.
Back when I used to work nearly every weekend I would stop at Starbucks every Saturday morning and buy a cinnamon dolce latte (or pumpkin spice if they were in season) and pumpkin scone. I think I figured it was my reward for working on a Saturday while it seemed like everyone else was home sleeping or out having fun. I’ve since negotiated an extra Saturday a month off (and adopted some healthier habits) but it’s still a nice treat once in awhile. 🙂
After work I stopped by Trader Joe’s for some groceries.
Tomorrow night I’m making dinner for the fam and then we’re building a fire in the fire pit outside and roasting smores. I’m planning to make the roasted vegetable salad and pumpkin butternut squash quinoa I made earlier this week along with a new stuffed chicken idea I had today. I’ll post recipes tomorrow if all goes well. 🙂
My post work meal was an egg white omelette with spinach, nutritional yeast and salsa and half of a chocolate cherry smoothie.
I’m off to do the Tracy Anderson DVDs (the early morning workout eluded me again today). Hope you’re all having a fun Halloween weekend!
What are your Halloween plans? Let me know what you’re up to so I can live vicariously through you too. 🙂
