Hello hello out there, today has been rather busy for a Sunday. BOOOOOOO I HATE BUSY SUNDAYS! My ideal Sunday includes mass, a book, leisurely internet shopping, and some wine…. in that order. Today however included last minute grocery shopping and winter business cloths shopping. BTW I do not find business cloths shopping a fun experience, these are the questions running in my head: Is this professional? Is this not professional enough? What would this go with? Do I have anything else to wear this with? Will this look good with business pants? On and on and on…. I ended up spending a lot of money and just told myself I would return some stuff, that way I didn’t stand there for an hour deciding what to buy. I was feeling stressed till I walked in the door and my wonderful husband who is sick had cleaned the whole apartment including doing some laundry and the cats litterbox (both of which are my jobs). God I love him. Now that all the chores are done I’m feeling a little less stress about all the prep work/cooking I’m about to do for this week.
We did most of our grocery shopping last night, with the exception of Costco and milk. Three different stores and no one had skim milk with a date on it that wasn’t within two days. Anyways, yesterday the Advent Jar told us to enjoy egg nog or apple cider (since I’m not into egg nog), we got Caramel Apple Spice Drinks from Starbucks to enjoy while we grocery shopped.
We actually had to go to two Starbucks because the first one was out of Apple Juice, #howdoesthathappen? Doesn’t matter, it makes for a better Advent Jar story right? They were so good, it was definitely worth the extra trip.

Two New Pages
If you check out the top bar I’ve added two new pages for easy reference. The first is a Weekly Meal Plan/Exercise Plan Page which has all the weekly plans I have posted since I started the blog in June. If you want to learn how one person can live off of Nut Butter check out the June – August posts. Everything from August on are meal plans for the hubby and I. Second is a Travel Page, right now it just has all four parts of the Honeymoon Recap on it.
Questions Of The Day:
