It is pouring in NYC right now. I braved the rain anyway because I really wanted to use my Starbucks free petit coupon.
- Front of the Coupon, how cute 🙂
I had all intentions of the getting the tiramisu cake pop until they told me they were out. Booooo! I asked for a tall pike, a lemon square (instead), and to add $25 to my gold card. First, she ran the card like 3 times to get the balance on it. (I will have a fit if I check my balance and it is $75). Then, she rang up a lemon pound cake. I told her that was not what I wanted while I was showing her the free petit coupon, hoping she would understand what I did want. She waved her hand and told me to hold on. Of course, she rang up the petit without using the coupon and had to go back and void the whole thing. Meanwhile, there is a line out the door. So just for my troubles I swiped a few honey packets when she walked away (why do they keep them behind the counter?).
This brings me to my afternoon snack:
After telling my co-worker the story, she sent me this:
You see, on our free time we tend to look at Damn You Auto Correct and found all of these other hilarious sites from there.
Something exciting arrived in my inbox today! Gilt Taste launched. It looks amazing and I can’t wait to get these deals in my inbox everyday along with the regular Gilt!
Why did I feel it necessary to include 5 thousand ingredients into my smoothie (last night’s dinner)?
Chocolate Covered Strawberry Smoothie
- 1 scoop vanilla protein powder
- 3/4 cup almond milk
- 7-8 frozen strawberries
- 1 heaping scoop of Hershey’s dark cocoa powder
- stevia packet
- pinch xanath
Blend together until thick and creamy. Garnish with a dollop of cool whip free, a sliced strawberry, a leftover chocolate covered strawberry from this weekend, a pizzelle (thin italian cookie–I used chocolate), and sprinkles. Gotta make it a sprinkle massacre. This was more like a strawberry massacre.
I proceeded to make one for Joe when he got home.
Workout and Breakfast
Today was my upper body strength training day. I mixed together a couple of my usual routines and had a really good workout! I also did abs and 25 minutes on the ellyptical.
I was super hungry when I got home and had already thought about what I was going to make while I was at the gym. I forgot about the blackberries I got this weekend and decided I was going to use them.
After blending up half of a frozen banana, a big handful of blackberries, 3/4 cup vanilla almond milk, a handful of spinach, and a scoop of vanilla protein powder, I got this big grey mess:
My smoothie kick continues…..
