Maybe She's Born With It

Posted Oct 15 2009 7:28pm

Good morning everyone!

I woke up to 42 degrees and rain this morning – aka my morning Mom walk was a no-go. Dang! I feel like I really could have used it today, too. I know I’m going to have a crazy day and won’t be able to get out for a walk during lunch, so on days like this it’s nice to know that I already have a little exercise under my belt. Oh well, it is what it is I guess!

That reminds me of an article my Mom just told me about – according to the Marist Institute of Public Opinion, the most annoying phrases, as voted by Americans are:

  • Whatever
  • You know
  • It is what it is
  • At the end of the day
  • Anyways

Darn…I feel like I use those phrases a lot!! They say a lot without saying a lot, know what I mean? Oh well. At the end of the day, it’s my opinion that counts, youknow? Whatever, anyways…


Perhaps you caught my little hint yesterday about a dish that can be made with leftover mashed sweet potatoes? Today I gave it a shot – a Sweet Potato Breakfast Cookie!


Oh yes, I used the other half of my mashed sweet potatoes from Monday night to create the biggest breakfast cookie yet!

In the mix:

  • 1/2 cup old fashioned oats
  • 1/2 cup pre-made mashed sweet potatoes
  • 1 Tablespoon sugar-free maple syrup
  • dash of cinnamon
  • 1/4 cup + 2 Tablespoons skim milk
  • 2 chopped, dried figs


This was definitely thicker and not as silky smooth as some of my otherbreakfast cookies, but overall it was a great way to use up leftovers. :)


Loooove, love, love those dried figs. Their texture and flavor are so unique and delish!


For lunch, I’ve packed a Striped Taco Salad.  


We’ve got carrots, spiced black beans and tomatoes.

My dressing is a couple spoonfuls of salsa, several shakes of green tabasco sauce, and a squeeze of some light ranch dressing. This combo is awesome!! Have you ever tried a little ranch mixed in with salsa for a dressing? It’s really, really good!


In other news, I had to switch to my “winter” color of foundation yesterday…nooo! It’s pale skin city up in here. Population: 1. Me.

What kind of makeup, if any, do you use?

I am all over the board, brand wise, when it comes to my makeup:

I always feel like stuff that is close to my skin – foundation, concealer, etc. should be of a little higher quality than your average, drug store brand. They’re probably all made with the exact same ingredients and I’m getting totally ripped off, but that’s just me. You know? :D

Have a great day everyone!


Today’s Three Question Thursday comes with an open invitation to everyone who has never commented before, or hasn’t in awhile, to “de-lurk!” We’d love to hear from you! :)  

1. What color are your eyes?

2. Are you a morning or night person? 

3. Do you wear perfume or cologne?


My answers:

1. Oh my, it depends on the day, I swear they constantly change! I think they’re greenish-hazel. Ben’s got the baby blues – in case you were wondering ;)

2. Morning person! My ideal work schedule would be 5am-2pm. I get SO much more accomplished in the mornings!

3. I’m allergic to most perfumes, but body splash is A-ok. I use Bath & Body Works’ Black Raspberry Vanilla body splash…which according to the website, they don’t make anymore – only body mist?!
