Happy Thursday! How is your week so far? Since I didn’t go into work until Tuesday, my days feel so off. I hope you have a wonderful day 🙂
Before we get into my Wednesday, I want to say happy birthday to Alex! I can’t wait to celebrate with you this weekend ❤
Waking up, I completely thought yesterday was Tuesday (and I kept thinking it throughout the day). Vacation really threw me off! I got up and ready for work. Alex was kind enough to make me breakfast since he was making his as well. Bacon and eggs plus some cranberry green tea and milk.
Work flew by and I kept crossing things off of my to do list which felt amazing. During my lunch break, I wrote down a list for Target so that I didn’t walk in without a game plan. I even wrote down the aisle numbers for things I needed…don’t judge! By doing that, I don’t wander around the store to get things I don’t really need. I swung by there and the Dollar Store after work. Unrelated but the Dollar Store had awesome Christmas decorations if you are interested. I’m well aware that I sound crazy saying that when November barely started but I know they’ll be gone soon.
When I was home, it was time to get serious. My office is having a potluck lunch and I signed up to bring cookies. So I whipped up two batches of my graham cracker chocolate chip cookies. To keep things simple and not crazy messy, I made one batch and cooked those while working on the second. Don’t ask me how but I managed to end up with 47 cookies. At Target, I bought these stacking cooling racks from Wilton and they’re awesome! I didn’t stack them but I tried it and its sturdy. It would be perfect if you need extra space on the counter.
After baking for close to 2 hours, I was ready for food. While the last tray of cookies were cooking, I heated up leftover Chinese from Monday night. I mixed the rice, chicken and broccoli together to have one less pan to clean. With all of that in one pan, the potstickers went into the other. It hit the spot and was minimal effort which I loved after being in the kitchen for so long.
Once the kitchen was cleaned, I started doing some random chores around the apartment. To keep myself entertained, I carried this bluetooth speaker from room to room. It’s the best speaker and really projects the sound! Since I was alone, I decided to listen to some 90s music and jammed out. “Bye, Bye, Bye” by *NSYNC came on and got me thinking about the Super Bowl halftime show. Does anyone else wonder if they’ll make a quick appearance while Justin is performing??
I finally sat down and pulled out my Nook. It’s been close to 5 months or so since I used it so I had to find the charger. Unfortunately I don’t know where it is, but I had a random cord that fit it so I could charge it a little and download two books. I opened up “Betrayal” by Fern Michaels to read first. Alex got home and I finally let myself have a cookie and a half with him. I was waiting for him to come home so that I didn’t eat a ridiculous amount. Self control for the win! We chatted for a bit before heading to bed.
Question of the day: What’s your go to music when you’re alone?
