Happy Saturday! What’s on your agenda for the day? Whatever you are doing, I hope it’s a great day 🙂
Friday started off bright and early. I tried to wait up for Alex on the couch last night while I read my book, but ended up falling asleep. By the time he got home, woke me up and we both got in bed it was almost 11:45 which is so late for us! Luckily, waking up wasn’t too hard. I got ready and made some breakfast. I scrambled an egg and cut up an apple.
I had the day off of work so I lounged on the couch for a bit
because I’m lazy to let traffic die down from rush hour. I figured since I had the day off, why not go grocery shopping for the week. I made my list and head out the door. Normally I just go to the local grocery store that is closest to our apartment but yesterday I made the drive to Trader Joe’s. On the drive, I had some Welch’s fruit snacks so I had a more full stomach. Seriously I could buy everything in the store. It all looks so good!!
I stopped off at our normal grocery store to get a few items that TJ’s doesn’t carry before heading home. Once the groceries were put away, I grabbed my lunch. Thursday night I was on auto pilot because I packed myself a lunch as if I were going to work, oops! I ate it while watching the final episode of “Big Little Lies”. After watching the whole thing, I think I prefer the book more. Just my opinion though 🙂
Alex likes to have trail mix as a snack while working but buying the premade kind is expensive! I grabbed all of the ingredients while shopping and made it myself. I put a pound of unsalted cashews, a pound of salted peanuts, half a package of raisins, and 1 cup of M&M’s into a big mixing bowl. Obviously I had to perform quality control and it passed with flying colors!
I watched some tv before packing an overnight bag for Alex and I. He had a networking event in Philadelphia and we decided to stay the night at his grandparents house before the go to Florida for the winter. While Alex was at the event, I grabbed a skinny chai tea latte and read in Starbucks. I wish I know how to make tea lattes at home. They’re such a creamy way to enjoy tea.
Alex finished to his event and we drove to his grandparents. His grandma was sweet enough to have dinner ready for us. She made a chicken casserole with some jasmine rice and salad. Then for dessert, she had an apple spice cake. The cake had apples, dried cranberries and some sort of chopped nut in it. We chatted with his grandparents for a few hours before heading to bed.
Question of the day: What’s your go to Starbucks drink? I either have an unseeetened iced tea (if it’s hot outside) or chai tea latter.
