Kitty Konundrum

So I totally had a post laid out for yesterday. I came upstairs, pulled out the lap top and then got a call form the little one. "Mama"!!!!. So I sat it down and went to check on her needs. When I came back a minute later the kitten (still has no official name) was standing on the lap top and my screen was gone and the mouse wouldn't work :(. BLAH!!! Ill be honest, I was more productive yesterday. Amazing what a day without the Internet can do!

Anyway, here's a quick recap of Wednesday and Thursday. I am guessing this was my mid morning Wednesday snack...

I think it was a strawberry and pineapple smoothie.
  • fresh pineapple
  • frozen strawberries
  • 1 cup unsweetened vanilla almond milk
  • ice
  • stevia
Wed. lunch....
Later, after lunch the little one and I decided that we were going to go to a matinee to see the new Hannah Montana movie. Before I left we shared this scrumpdilliumptious snack...
Yes, that is the beautiful Wilderness Poets nut butters melted on top (see a review here). As you can see I had some of the Cashew Cocoa and the Sesame Pistachio. They were the perfect addition to my warm melty Chocolate Chip Vitatop. Mmmmmm.

We then headed to the movies. We were early so I snapped a few pics of sassy pants...
I joined the action...
(man that shadow really makes my nose look weird)

Surprisingly the movie was fab!! and the little one danced her way through the whole thing...

There were only 3 other people there besides us :).

Although the movie was great and I had an awesome time, on the way out the theater I fell and busted my grill...

Hahaha. Got cha...
Later I made Green Pea Guac....
And had some with dinner...
That's roasted eggplant mixed with another one of my random sausages.

Later I picked up the man from the airport. I was so tired when we got home and just wanted to sleep but he really really really missed me....A LOT (if you know what I mean) hehehe!! Anyway, I got to bed later than planned and had to get up at 4:30am to make it to my weekly weight class. Like a tard I did the 50 min. weight class (with sore knees) and then did a 45 min. spin class. OUCH!

Thursday, I apparently made a smoothie....
Packed a salad to take to the park...
and a side of butternut squash fries..
I also had a much needed LADIES NIGHT!! Sadly this is my only pic..
(a long time friend of mine)

No gym today. Just a bowl of yummy almond butter, banana oats..
Thanks to Wildnerness Poets Hemp Nut Butter I am becoming a fan of chunky nut butter!!

What do you prefer? Chunky or smooth?

CONFESSION OF THE DAY: I am totally one of those moms who hopes her little girl wont grow up wanting to be a cheerleader. Love me or hate me....


  1. your little girl is too cute! she looks so much like you.. my kids look nothing like me.. when we go out people probably think I'm the nanny(hehe)
    gotta go with the smooth nut butter.. actually prefer chunky but I have stupid braces (inside teeth) yuck..

  2. Haha, you scared me there for a minute with those teeth!

    I really do prefer smooth nut butters but I pretty much don't turn any of them down :)

  3. I wish you were my mom! She DIDN'T want me to be a cheerleader but I'm such a gigi (girly girl) that's all I ever wanted! I had to settle for soccer instead :)
    I like smooth!
    Hubba hubba with your man! ;)

  4. Your strawberry smoothies looks like a strawberry pina colada or something :) Makes me want to go to Hawaii!
    I'm with you on today's confession ;) No daughter yet but I do think about this kind of thing!!

  5. Crunchy, all the way! I used to despise it and only ate the creamy version, but over the year something changed and now I can't imagine buying peanut butter (unless it's PB & CO) brands w/o the crunch!

    Your daughter is SOOO adorable, and I love your little photo session together!

  6. Your girl looks so gorgous in those pics. She could model! Or maybe not (I guess its not far off being a cheerleader)

    Silly question (we dont have cheerleaders here in Australia) but what does it mean to say you wouldnt want her to be one? What's so bad about them? I'm intruiged!

    I love those almond butter banana oats - looks amazing!

  7. I am totally with you on the cheerleading thing...maybe its because I was always in sports? Good luck! She's adorable. Your eats look sooo good. Aren't Vitatops awesome? And I want to try that green pea guac! As for nut butters...I like crunchy but sometimes need to change it up with smooth. Have a great weekend!

  8. Hah! She's such a fierce little lady! Love it!!

    Gorgeous smoothie color! I love both chunky and smooth - Barney butter? Chunky! Peanut butter? Smooth!

  9. Girl, you know I'm all about the chunks. However, today I did by smooth almond butter, but only because I got a killer deal on it at Costco. I figured I'd just throw a few almond chunks of my own in the jar. :)

    You and Little One are too cute. Seriously, I love how she poses for the camera. Makes me smile every time.

    Your packed salad for the park looked so good Justine. Makes me want to haul ass to TJ's and buy more sausage. :)

    Looking forward to tomorrow my friend. Have a good night!
