Oh Friday. I am sorta happy to see you. You see, yes, I am super happy that it is the weekend. BUT we are planning to spend the entire weekend painting our house. And I am not looking forward to it. Silver linings: #1. We have quite a few people coming to help #2. Luke has a Grandma coming each day to hang out with #3. the floors aren’t in yet, the windows aren’t framed. . . i.e. it will be pretty easy to paint with minimal taping (which I think everyone can agree is one of the worst parts!) #4. we are saving quite a bit of money doing it ourselves. So, while I am not looking forward to it, I am hopeful that it will go faster and better than anticipated! Cross your fingers for me! And make sure to tell me what you are doing this weekend so I can live vicariously though you. And if you are free, do you want to come paint?
Anyway, I am off to the first of I am sure numerous trips to Home Depot for the weekend. . . so here are some of my Friday Favorites for you from the week.
Malt-o-meal cereal –> So, you guys know about my love for cinnamon toast crunch – well it is actually a love for cinnamon toasters. My husband loves cereal. It actually works out well that he loves cereal so much because he is
happy when I don’t want to make anything for dinner and he can eat cereal for dinner. I didn’t eat malt-o-meal cereal before getting married, but since my husband eats it, that’s what we buy. For a while, I also bought cinnamon toast crunch because I thought it was better. And then one day we were out of the “real” stuff, so I was forced to eat malt-o- meal. And you guys, it is better. There is more cinnamon sugar goodness.
And same with frosted mini spooners (frosted mini wheat’s) – they have more icing.
YUM! I love eating cinnamon toasters for “dessert” after dinner during the week. Because in our house, my husband and I have the biggest sweet tooths ever and can’t stop after 1 cookie, we only eat desserts on the weekend. But sometimes, after dinner, you just need a little something, ya know? And that’s where cinnamon toasters fit perfectly into my life. **I can’t eat them for breakfast, because they don’t fill me up or keep me full. However, I do love to keep a bag of frosted mini spooners in my car and eat those for breakfast.
Quick, easy, delicious. And Luke loves to eat them too.
And did you know that malt-o-meal is made in MN? They have a factory in Northfield. And I had the chance to meet someone who works there and he said that employees have the option to take home 3 (three!!) bags every day if they want to.
I totally think Scott should get a job there. . . And no, I didn’t get anything from Malt-O-Meal to talk about their goodness – I just really love their cereal.
<—BTW I can’t believe that I just wrote all that about my love for cereal.
Surprises in the mail. Almonds from Blue Diamond. <—which Luke thinks were for him. . . to help support the US Ski and Snowboarding team.
Cute Valentine’s Day card from Becky.
And the cutest thank you package from Ashley. <—thank you so much!!
I think I love and hate you all at the same time for introducing me to these almonds. Delicious and dangerous.
I have enjoyed one as part of my lunch every day this week. My favorite combo so far is still apples, carrots and 1/2 lemon. YUM!
Now, it’s your turn. What was your favorite from the week?
And as usual feel free to link up with your Friday post!!
