TGIFF (Thank God it’s Flashback Friday).
My eats today are a little short of exciting, so bear with me.
To-go breakfast of:
- Strained homemade greek yogurt
- Crumbled banana bomb muffin
- Kashi golean (for crunch)
- 1/2 banana
My knee has been bothering me since Sunday’s hike (seriously, even hiking really flares my knee pain). After the 30 minutes stairmaster (level 10), I did an easy 1 mile walk on the treadmill. I wanted to go 2 miles, but knew I shouldn’t push through the knee pain. Followed by 6 minutes of whittling my middle.
Post-gym, I was hangry, and came home to the last of my pumpkin soup (besides what I froze), and the other half of my butternut squash.
I still wanted a little something sweet, so I went to have a couple bites of this mini-apple pie I couldn’t turn down last night at the store.
Soon, almost the whole middle was hollowed out. Then I came up with the genius idea to warm it in the microwave and top it off with a little pumpkin ice cream.
It all went downhill from there.
And then it was gone.
I know these are “individual” sized, but it was still at least 2, probably 3 servings worth of apple pie. I’m all for desserts and treats in moderation. And Thanksgiving is definitely a time to splurge and enjoy your pies 🙂 Key word: Thanksgiving. Not the whole week before, or the whole week after. Oh well, what’s done is done. I just know I can’t continue my multiple servings of ice cream and apple pie eating on a regular day-to-day basis over here, like I have been doing!
The roommates and I hit up Forever 21 for a bit of girl time shopping around 6:00. So I didn’t get home to eat dinner until 8:00…starving!! And you all know how it goes when you’re that hungry. Everything in sight gets devoured…unpictured 😦
First, I grabbed a banana bomb muffin + sunbutter. Next I heated up my remaining 2 buffalo chicken meatballs. Then came an egg + 2 egg white scramble. And finally greek yogurt & pumpkin mixture topped with a bit of cereal to finish off my meal. If you can call that a meal? haha. I just kept eating bits of random food until I felt satisfied.
Oh – and can’t forget the brownie batter as my roommate prepared some birthday brownies 😉
But I was super excited to receive a package from this special lady.
Yay for giveaways 😀 I’m excited to try the Green bars and banana carrier! And the steamer container. Thanks Paigie – you’re awesome 🙂
To make up for my lack of photography, how about some Flashback action? For as long as I can remember, Thanksgiving break has been the time for my family to take our Disneyland trips. We don’t go every year (usually every 2-3 years), but we always went during this time of the year. Less crowded, but you could still enjoy the holiday decorations!
I don’t have pictures on this computer prior to 2004, so here we are at our last November Disneyland trip – 2005 (which also happened to be the 50th Anniversary year)!
I took the bus down from school to meet them in LA. I was so excited to see my family during my first quarter away at school 🙂
I don’t think I’ve ever gotten this wet on Splash Mountain –
I love my dad in the background waving over my head 🙂
First time in California Adventures!
This is one of my favorite pictures of my parents. They look so happy 🙂
I’m so used to Disneyland at Christmas time, I couldn’t even imagine it without all the beautiful decorations.
And “snow” (soap bubbles)…
The shooting gallery is definitely one of my favorite attractions. It’s a tradition for my brother and I to take turns shooting a target and trying to get the other person to shoot the same thing.
Disneyland trips hold a very special place in my heart, with lots of family time and special memories. Whenver we manage to make a trip there, a certain familiar feeling overwhelms me. My family is always in a good mood, and gets along – which is very rare! 😉 It was extremely hard for me to take my first non-family Disneyland trip this summer since I’m so used to it being a family tradition!
What family vacations do you hold dear? Any vacation traditions you guys have?
