spoiled rotten

when i got back to my apartment from spending the weekend in st. louis, i immediately felt spoiled! want to know why?

i had four packages waiting for me! 🙂 two of these were things i had ordered through ebates.com, but two of them were treats that i won!

i ordered a couple items from old navy: socks, a cardigan, and a sundress!

and some shoes from dsw

i had a picture of an outfit that i wanted to wear to brad’s graduation in my head, but i didn’t have any of those components, so i was stalking deals for a couple days and finally ordered everything! you’ll have to wait 18 (!!!) days to see the outfit in action, though. 🙂

*****

now on to the exciting stuff! i won a granola giveaway from courtney at the granola chronicles.

i tried the love grown foods granola last night and i have courtney’s homemade granola waiting for my oats this morning! can’t wait to try it!

i was also a lucky duck and won lisa’s giveaway for a set of the cards that her mom designs and sells!

i chose the twisted set. aren’t they awesome??

her mom’s business is called card talk, and she had so many awesome designs that i had a really hard time choosing which set i wanted!

i love that the cards are blank inside so i can use them for whatever i want.

thanks so much lisa & courtney!

just a little food

i didn’t do a very good job photographing my meals yesterday. breakfast was the same oats i had all weekend, and lunch was eaten on the road.

dinner was tasty though! 🙂 i made a quick smoothie in a bowl:

all blended up:

  • frozen banana
  • frozen blueberries
  • frozen strawberries
  • skim milk
  • 1 scoop vanilla protein powder
  • 1 big handful of spinach

and topped with some of that love grown foods granola from courtney! i can already tell that stuff is not going to last very long in my house. 🙂

*****

ok, time to get to work! today’s going to be a busy day!

what’s your favorite kind of granola?

i’ve always really liked trader joe’s pecan praline granola, but i’m also a fan of bear naked fruit & nut granola. this love grown foods stuff is delicious too, though! i really want to try their other flavors now. 🙂

  6. Aren’t packages the best?
    My favorites are food and clothes/shoes. 🙂
    (Or wedding dresses as of late.)

    You’re going to love the Love Grown Foods granola! It ranked up there as a favorite for me in terms of taste & ingredients. I also love Nature’s Path granolas. But, I can’t have any granola or cereal until Easter! Gave it up for Lent. 🙂

  8. I LOVE getting packages. Four in a day might just send me over the edge with excitement. My favorite granola lately is a raw version I make from Raw Food, Real World and the Ezekiel 4:9 almond version.

      hmmm, i’ve never made my own granola (although i intend to try soon!) and i’ve never tried the ezekiel 4:0 almond one! i’ll keep my eyes open for it.
