Rest & relaxation.  That is what’s hopefully ahead for me this weekend – although, I always say that and manage to find some shenanigans to partake in…

Brekkie was fast and delish – Tarjay Heartsmart cereal, blueberries & vanilla oat milk, and I was out the door in 10 minutes to make a quick ‘Bou run before work!


I munched on another 1/2 cup or so of berries on my way to work, thus finishing off the pint.  Unfortunately, since breakfast lacked some belly-sustaining protein, I was forced to munch on these buggers just a couple hours later:


These True North Citrus Burst nut clusters are really addicting – ummm, when the serving size is only 5 pieces, you know you’ve hit some dangerous food territory.  I also found an Apple Cinnamon flavor in these – danger ahead, I repeat, danger ahead.

Today was another bovine grazing day, so a couple hours after the nutty goodness, I dove into  a regular ol’ side salad.  Spinach, beets, tomato, sunflower seeds + Newman’s Sesame Ginger vinaigrette…


Yes, that is my to-do list on the classy yellow Post-It.

During my lunch hour, I bebopped over to Tarjay and prayed that I wouldn’t spend over $20.  Whelp, that didn’t happen.  I came out with a bunch of stuff I really didn’t need, including a new pair of gold sandals (11$!!!), a bowl/plate combo ($0.74 and $0.88, respectively), an Annie’s Rice & Bean Burrito (which I ate when I got back) and some other crap essentials.


Work was eerily quiet today – I swear almost everyone was gone by the time I got back from Target.  I snacked on another 4th of July Tootsie Pop (this time in blue raspberry) and got back to some work.  At around 3pm, I was feeling a bit snacky so I brought out the big guns for the 2nd day in a row:

Stonyfield Farms Oikos Honey Greek yogurt
1/4 cup Target Heartsmart cereal
1 smashed banana
1 tbsp. peanut butter


Love.  The world needs this too.

It was another stellar combo except…

I didn’t love the Oikos Honey flavor.  Shocker, I know!  I love honey, and I love Greek yogurt – together however, I think it might have been too sweet?  The ingredients said it had honey and sugar in it, so maybe together it was all too much?  I’m a little disappointed, but I loved all the other flavors so much, I’m not worried.  Now, I just need to find the elusive new strawberry flavor…

I am sore from yoga last night, so I’m definitely taking today as a rest day so I can get up and run those 9 miles tomorrow morning – eeks!  So, I’m not sure what I’m going to do tonight – dinner + movie, perhaps? 

Woowoo for the work week being done and another woowoo for the weekend!  Have a fabulous weekend everyone – see ya around :).

    I want new bowls/plates for under a dollar! Holy moly! Now you’ve gone and done it – there is no stopping me when I live a mere 10 ten minutes walk from the downtown Tarjay! Also, LOVING your yoghurt/cereal/banana squish/pb combo plate! Oh my, I’m gonna need to try this one out!
    So good “meeting you” on here today – have a great weekend!

    You’re going to die when you see my post tomorrow – let’s just say it has to do with your LOVEly snack 😉 I haven’t tried honey because it does sound like sugar overload, good to know I’m not missing much!

    Gotta love Tarjay!

    Hey there! I love reading your blog, you are too funny, and the pics are always great! Goodness gracious, girlie I am feeling you on the whole Target situation – that store is too hard to get out of. There’s waaay too many goodies in there to put a $20 limit, can’t be done. 😛

  5. I love your beet salad. Simple and tasty. The addition of crunchy sunflower seeds is awesome. And you can’t beat a sesame ginger vinaigrette.

  6. Jenny Says:

    hope you get lots or rest and relaxation, beautiful! those the occasional shenanigan is always necessary 😉

    can you stop being so cute?! that heart bowl is so precious!

    lots and lots of love!

  7. Alison Says:

    You are very good at drawing with peanut butter. I think you should consider a second blog devoted to this.

    9 miles tomorrow! WOOT! Good luck girlfriend!

    • Holly Says:

      Haha – a food art blog? You are too funny. I don’t think I’ve seen one of those out there…

  8. I agree!! The honey flavored greek yogurts are just TOO much. I love honey and I love greek yogurt, but the 2 combined don’t do it for me. I’m more of a plain, strawberry or blueberry-flavored chobani/oikos girl!

    Have fun RELAXING this weekend! 😉

    • Holly Says:

      The honey when I opened it smelled like beer. Don’t get me wrong, I love me a brewsky but I do not want my yogurt to smell like that. No more honey Greek yog for me. I’m with ya on those other flavors!

  9. jenngirl Says:

    I have that planner that your post-it is on!! So love it.

    Your afternoon snack totally makes my night, cute heart! 😉

  10. I hope you get the rest and relaxation you crave this weekend!

    I love th Target finds! Sandals are purdy!

    Fantastic looking salad. I LOOOOOOOOOOOVE beets. My grandmother used to grow them and nothing “beets” fresh beets out of the garden :-p

    Have a fantastic weekend!

  11. burpexcuzme Says:

    $11 for that gorgeous pair of sandals! that’s daylight robbery! lucky!
    And I do hope you get some serious R &R this weekend, too!

  12. Tay Says:

    I have determined it is completely IMPOSSIBLE to walk out of Target without having spent at least double what you planned to. It’s always at least over $50 for me! Eeek!!

    But how can you pass up adorable $11 shoes?!

  13. I love your new sandals! I just bought a pair of gold gladiator sandles! Too cute. That heart in your heart-smart cereal is just toooo sweet. 🙂

  14. Look at that bowl of yogurty goodness!! LOVE it! 😀

    Have an awesome weekend!
