pumpkin on the fly

Well, it happened again this morning.

6:47am…BUZZ.Drilllll.Shake.Buzzzzzz.

W.T.F.

I am not kidding when I say, it sounds like they are drilling a hole to China.

Hmmm….what if they are? What if Communism is back? I guess that would be weird. Remember the McCarthy raids? Wait. I wasn’t alive for that. Remember when the Berlin wall came down? Shoot. I was only five when that happened.

Um, disregard everything I just said.

Other than the drilling and banging, I actually had a lovely morning.

Breakfast today was all about pumpkin.

I picked up a couple of real pumpkins from the store the other day. Aren’t they cute? I used to love visiting pumpkin patches when I was a little girl. Um, scratch that. I still love to visit pumpkin patches. Anybody want to go? I will buy you some apple cider. Spiked? You got it!

Since I have been trying to eat oats at least once a week, I figured why not get in the pumpkin spirit and make a pumpkin smoothie.

Brilliant!

Pumpkin Pie Smoothie

Ingredients:
– 1/3 cup oats
– 1/2 pumpkin puree
– 1/3 yogurt
– banana
-1 tablespoon chia seeds
– 1/2 cup milk
– pinch salt
– pinch cinnamon
– pumpkin granola, garnish
– almond butter, garnish

Directions:
– Put all ingredients into a blender, except the pumpkin, and store overnight. Do not blend. In the morning, add some more milk, pumpkin, and then blend away! Top with pumpkin granola and peanut butter!

Mmmm….tastes just like pumpkin pie. Only better.

As I drove to work today, my thoughts were everywhere:

– Why is it so warm?
– These Me Too flats are too small.
– I need a bulldog.
– I love our new Jeep.
– Maybe our Jeep could use some truck nuts? No. that’s weird.
– That guy riding that scooter looks weird.
– I need new ski bindings.
– Do I go to Target before of after boot camp?

I know very thought provoking.

Anyways, todays outfit was super cute. Well, at least I thought. What do you think?

With wrap…
Without…
Grey Top: BCBG (outlet)
Jeggings: Gap
Flats: Me Too
Jewelry: Uncle Nordies
Wrap: Uncle Nordies
After work I did stop by Target. I thought I would be in and out, but they rearranged the store. Don’t hate when that happens? Now the laundry detergent is next to the shampoo. Brilliant.
Once I arrived home, I was going to run, but it was super windy and looked like it was about to rain so I eighty-six that idea.
Wise choice because boot camp tonight was crazy hard. We did a lot of upper body conditioning. I seriously have no upper body strength. Trying to do skull crushers and dips, followed by jumping on a box with weights in each hand is not my happy place.
Nevertheless, we are all getting stronger and that’s what matters.
Now I am at home contemplating whether or not to down a bottle of red wine, while I watch my favorite fall TV shows. Decisions are the worst (name that movie!)
See ya tomorrow!
