Good morning my blog friends!!! That’s right, I am back. I finally got a new computer – isn’t she a beauty?
The original plan was to get a notebook computer, so the hubs ordered one online. Well it hadn’t shipped yet – he preordered a new model. Yesterday we stopped at Best Buy so I could just see if the size was going to be ok for what I usually use the computer for. After thinking about it, it was just a little too small. D uses the computer too and I think the notebook would be hard for him to use. I think they are cool and a good thing to have for blogging on the run but for my everyday stuff I decided to go with a more normal size laptop.
Last night Charlie did all the setup work, which was taking a little longer than I expected and I was falling asleep in the chair waiting. I decided to hit the hay and start my day on Tuesday using my new baby.
Here is a recap of my eats yesterday. I am now a bar addict – they are so portable – perfect for this mama. The pizza was Amy’s Roasted Veggie Pizza – it tastes exactly the same as TJ’s Roasted Veggie Pizza. I loved it – I could easily eat this everyday. The crust is delicious and I love the sweet caramelized onion sauce under the veg.
This morning I went to the gym at 5 – I really enjoy exercising at that hour. I did 30 minutes on the Elliptical w/moving handles, 30 minutes on the ARC Trainer and weights.
I made a creamy bowl of Whole Grain Cream of Wheat for breakfast again. I mixed in 1/4 cottage cheese and topped it with a Nature’s Promise Peanut Butter Honey Roasted Snack Bar. I loved the flavor of this bar. Both of the NP bars are great.
I also had a golden delicious apple.
I am planning on taking D to the library at some point today. I need to find another book to read. We usually play a bunch of games that they have so it should be some fun for him too. Other than that just the usual household chores that mommy needs to tend to. I need to figure out what kind of a goodie I am going to make my honey for Valentine’s Day. I always make him truffles so I need to decide what flavor he gets this year. My man is a huge chocoholic (as you all know by now), he loves when I make him homemade truffles. He keeps asking me what I want and I really can’t think of anything. I mean he just bought me a new computer – that is a pretty sweet gift, especially because I was about to lose my mind without it.
Time to go get the little man dressed – he is watching some AM toons at the moment. I hope you have a great day. I know that I will – now that I feel connected to the world again. See you later.
