a day off… again

Happy Furlough Day to me!  Before I get to my day, a few weeks ago, the Beet Street Blog asked me to write a guest post, and it’s up today!  Go check out this great blog and my moms recipe for Hot Mulled Cider.

I am still recovering from being sick, so we were a little slow today, but I did go to target!  I love target, I don’t know what about it, it just makes me happy!  Plus, I found a treat (you’ll have to wait until the end of this post to see it! 

I got two packages in the mail today, the first is a sample pack of Bean & Body coffees.  I can’t wait to try these!

I also got a surprise package from Sigg.  This was a surprise because I haven’t returned my water bottles yet because of the BPA.  Apparently, there was an issue with the security on their website and as an apology they sent free bottles to customers.  I think they sent the not so desirable patterns since. This is not quite my style, but who am I to say no to a free  water bottle!

So, all in all a fun day off!  And I promise, I didn’t check my work email a single time!  I did repeat my work breakfast though.  All bran buds and Just Pineapple.  Yum.
Lunch was some Natures Pride toast with strawberry preserves.  I love this breakfast!IMG_2524_edited-1
It is still cold today, so having Tuscan potato soup was a perfect option.
And the treat I got at Target…Pumpkin Hershey Kisses!  I’ve seen these around so I wanted to pick some up.  I have to say, meh.  Which is perfect.  If they were crave-worthy then I would be in trouble.
No dinner tonight since Dan and I are going on a date!  I don’t do well waiting for dinner, so I will probably have to have a snack first….

What are your Friday night plans?
