As the Week Comes to an End

September 23, 2011

I can finally say Happy First Day of Fall!

Let’s look at what happened this week, shall we?

Number of posts written: 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, and now 6!  Must have been motivated this week!

Miles ran: 13. Plus 11 tomorrow morning…gulp.

Days off from work: 3.  That’s not going to work for me come rent-paying time.

Cups of tea drank: Too many to count.  Helloooo, vanilla rooibos.

Number of times I’ve made these pancakes: 3.  I have an fever.  And the only prescription is more cowbell pancakes.

Rooms that I’ve deep-cleaned this week: My kitchen and bathroom (the hardest two!).  And I even re-organized my kitchen pantry.  That’s what 3 days off from work will do to you.

Best recipes of the week: Don’t make me choose.


These sandwiches rocked.

But so did these enchiladas.

And this chili (minus the chicken :P)

And these potatoes.

And this zucchini bread.

What’s even better than homemade zucchini bread?

Homemade zucchini bread and pumpkin spice steamers.  And Jersey Shore an intelligent book.


I used this recipe for pumpkin spice syrup and mixed it with some warm vanilla almond milk.  I cut wayyyy back on the sugar (from 1 1/2 cups to 1/4 cup) — vanilla almond milk is sweet enough already!

The magic of a pumpkin spice latte, without the espresso, so it’s perfect for late night sipping.  You know, in case you want to be able to fall asleep.  Or caffeine hates you.

For less than $4 for a tall…

Number of remaining episodes left until I ditch Glee? 2.  Enough with the dumb plot line.  I get it, Sue hates the glee club.  More singing please.

New fall shows I’ve watched (in hopes that they can replace Glee if need be): Up All Night, The New Girl and Free Agents.  Verdict: Up All Night is hilarious!!  The New Girl, unsure.  Free Agents, no thanks!

Number of hot dogs Joey ate at the Rockies game: 2.  And then the sandwich I packed him.  Where does he put it??

IMG_2921 IMG_2922 And why the heck was he eating it like a piece of corn?

What I’m doing now: Hanging with this little girl.

We’re off to do some at home yoga!

    Bahaha LOVE the cowbell reference. That pretty much made my day. Sounds like it was a productive week indeed!

    What I’m doing now: sitting on my couch, watching comedy TV, and eating snacks. Perfect Friday night.

    Your posts just make me want to leave work and go make pancakes. Every single time. Cups of tea for me: I’m at 5 so far 😀
