7 Random Thoughts


It’s a good thing today is Thursday because putting together a post that flows was not about to happen this morning.

Between juggling my son being home for a few days as I attempted to work while simultaneously trying to become a blog savvy tech person (I am not and never will be but I will keep trying/complaining about it until things work the way I want them to), I am not exactly flowing with coherent words unless I am typing in a live chat.

I have been doing a lot of technological live chats this week. I don’t understand any of the computer lingo they type at me but I try my best to pretend and shoot big words back at them.

And with that warning, here are my thoughts for today:

1-  I can’t recall the last time I had greek yogurt. It’s easily been a month, if not more, which is funny when you consider that it was a staple in morning routine for a really long time.

2 – This headband from Lululemon always falls off of my head when I run. I don’t understand.

3 – My friend Robyn went to Hawaii recently and brought me back this Hello Kitty bag!

Robyn and I met back in junior year of college. I first spotted her in my finance class because she was using a Hello Kitty pencil. I walked over and told her I liked her pencil and here we are, 16 years later.

4- If I ever take a break from trying to deactivate plug-ins and optimize photos (don’t ask, I don’t know what I just said either), I have grand plans for making my chocolate covered caramel apples again.

It’s been a while since I made my own and I even picked up the caramel at Target BUT then I decided I need to make the healthified chocolate covered caramel apples which involve blended up dates. I don’t have dates nor do I have time to go buy dates today but it’s on my list.

I will be following this recipe and will let you know how they come out.

5- I have a few meetings today in the city and one of them is taking place over lunch at my favorite restaurant, The Smith.

I haven’t been to The Smith in a while but that doesn’t stop me from thinking about their roasted brussels sprouts.

How amazing, right? Click here for the flashback post. 

6 – My son’s Bar Mitzvah is exactly one year from today (seriously?!) which means 2016 is a leap year because his party will be a Saturday night.

7  – Last night was not supposed to be pizza night but it became pizza night. We used the Trader Joe’s frozen organic whole wheat pizza crust for the first time and like it much better than the whole wheat dough that they sell in the refrigerated case.


And with that I am off to get my busy day started. Be sure to check out what everyone else is thinking about today 🙂

Do you like candy apples or chocolate covered caramel apples?

Is there a food you recently and randomly stopped eating?

Do you make your own pizza crust and if not, which do you buy when you make pizza at home?

    Oh, I hear you on technological things – I have no clue of them and tend to call my brother who works in the branche when I have trouble with my laptop. Like I currently do …
    We make our own pizza crust so it’s usually a weekend meal as it takes too much time elsewise :). Whole-wheat crusts aren’t available in stores here but I could totally see myself using them if they were.

    The Smith is my favorite place to have brunch in the city! I recently just stopped eating cereal again. I got back on a cereal kick and would plow through a full box in two days. Totally bad habit. I do make my own pizza crust fresh each time we make pizza. Makes it so much better!!

    I have never had a chocolate covered caramel apple. A fact that may need to be rectified. 😉 Those look amazing!

    Thursday is our pizza night. I almost always make my own dough.

    Hey, we had pizza night last night! 🙂 We were in Idaho, and we went to a hotel… Well, we decided that pizza would make a nice dinner. So we ran about 1.5 miles to get it, then carried it back… It was a pretty fun adventure. Those apples look really good! I’ve never made caramel apples before!

      I don’t know what it is about this headband in particular, slides off every time. I wont wear it anymore — btw, not sure if my comment posted today, was having trouble with it freezing as I was trying to type.
