Monday, Again

It’s definitely December.

Charlotte is finally cooling down.  Don’t hate the Southern states, but it hasn’t truly felt like winter for any significant stretch.  Today I woke up to chills and rain.  Winter is finally upon us.


How was your weekend?  Mine was FUN… as a result, I’m suffering from Moanday bluesIn addition to the 5K, my weekend consisted of babies…

(Little Wyatt!)




(On the hunt for an antique table for the office – no dice, though.)


And birds…

(Specifically, Angry Birds.)


I cannot stop playing Angry Birds.  I even dreamt I was an Angry Bird for the last two nights in a row.  Someone, please come take the iPhone out of my hands and give me productivity back.  Actually… wait until I’m done with Level 4.


On that note… BREAKFAST!


Just a yogurt mess:


Canned pumpkin

Honey Greek yogurt



Agave nectar

Raw oats <—Promise it tastes good!


Ready… set… WORK.  Or Angry Birds.  Whatever.

    ha! i love everything about this post. wyatt is a little angel and angry birds is my #2 time waster (next to pinterest of course!)

  • Angela @ Eat Spin Run Repeat December 12, 2011, 9:41 am

    Ah yes Angry Birds..fortunately I’m not even letting myself get into that because I’ve got a severe Pinterest addiction that is already consuming far too much of my time!

  • Khushboo December 12, 2011, 9:44 am

    Haha thanks to my Words With Friends addiction, Angry Birds may just kill my productivity levels completely…I’m staying far away!

  • Alett December 12, 2011, 9:45 am

    Sounds like it was a great weekend!

    I too love the Angry birds – who knew that knocking stuff over and destroying pigs could be so much fun!

    This weekend was our Girls on the Run local 5k. Since the chapter is still small we participate in a local 5k and then have the official New Balance GOTR 5k for the culmination of the winter session.

    happy week!

    The novelty of Angry Birds will wear off, I promise. It may take time, and you will have relapses, but you will get your old life back eventually.

  • Averie @ Love Veggies and Yoga December 12, 2011, 10:10 am

    oh that antique shop is just CRAWLING with great dishes, linens, napkins and the like…Oh I could have a field day in there..table or not 🙂

  • Army Amy* December 12, 2011, 10:11 am

    That sounds like an ideal weekend! I spent mine running (12 miles Saturday, 8 miles Sunday). It was great, but it made the weekend go by way too fast!*

  • Corrie Anne December 12, 2011, 10:21 am

    I love the Joy sign!!! Have a good day at work… or play games! 🙂

  • Morgan @ Life After Bagels December 12, 2011, 10:32 am

    I love raw oats, they’re so chewy!

    oh wait as soon as I wrote that I got a craving for cooked steel cut oats because I just bought a bag for the first time all season

  • Kristen @ The Concrete Runner December 12, 2011, 10:36 am

    Angry Birds is a great thing to do when your breastfeeding – just fyi! And I started eating yogurt mess bowls a few weeks ago – soooo good! The raw oats are awesome in it!

  • Heather December 12, 2011, 10:50 am

    I’ve been going to bed and playing Angry Birds before slumber for the past two weeks or so. It’s ridiculous. I am ridiculous.

  • Rebecca @ Naturally Healthy and Gorgeous December 12, 2011, 11:09 am

    Raw oats do taste good! I like adding wheat berries because they’re chewy!

  • Carolina John December 12, 2011, 11:14 am

    I’m right there with you. Don’t want to do squat for work this monday! Great job on the 5k this weekend. That looks like a fun one.

  • Katie @ Peace Love and Oats December 12, 2011, 11:14 am

    That sounds like a pretty nice and relaxing weekend to me!

  • Jessika December 12, 2011, 11:17 am

    I discovered this weekend that there is an actual Angry Birds board game! Your opponent(s) build the structure and it comes with a catapult and little birds to try and knock it down! So much fun! A certain 28 & 37 year old had a blast with it 🙂

  • Tiff @ Love Sweat and Beers December 12, 2011, 11:34 am

    I’m fine with cool rainy days… except when I have to go to work… and when it’s Monday. Sigh. At least Christmas is coming!

  • Amber @ Busy, Bold, Blessed December 12, 2011, 11:41 am

    It was in the 20s this morning when I left the house (southeast PA), so uh yeah… winter is here! We’ve had a lot of sunny days, so I don’t mind the cold too much.

    I just tried some overnight oats for the first time… well my made up version with the things I already had in my fridge. Pumpkin butter makes anything taste good!

  • HRCK @ December 12, 2011, 11:50 am

    Words with Friends and now Hangman with Friends claim WAY too much of my time. I’m too bad at Angry Birds (and yes, I know that toddlers play it) for it to be that much fun!

  • Liz @ Tip Top Shape December 12, 2011, 12:02 pm

    My weekend was awesome, so I have some Mondays blahs, too. But this is the last week of my school’s semester (whoo!) so there is a silver lining 😉

  • Moni'sMeals December 12, 2011, 12:41 pm

    LOVE these pics! Happy Monday :]. No angry birds…do not do it! haha. 🙂

  • Jessica @ The Process of Healing December 12, 2011, 12:45 pm

    BABIES!!!!! Newborn babies are pretty much the cutest things ever. EVER.

  • Annette @ EnjoyYourHealthyLife December 12, 2011, 12:48 pm

    Haha. I LOVE yogurt messes. ANd babies!

  • Amber K December 12, 2011, 1:04 pm

    I played Angry Birds once on someone else’s phone, but I didn’t understand the appeal. Maybe if I had my own to play at my leisure I’d get into it?

  • Allison December 12, 2011, 1:18 pm

    I’ve never combined bananas + pumpkin… Weird flavor combo?

  • Emily G. @ from my messy desk December 12, 2011, 1:24 pm

    Angry Birds gets me everytime! I lay in bed at night playing. If I can’t get passed a level, I always tell myself I’ll play just one more game to see if I can get passed it. It never fails – I ALMOST kill the monsters so I have to try other ways to pass the level. Thirty minutes later I am so frustrated and cheat..

  • Joelle (On A Pink Typewriter) December 12, 2011, 1:24 pm

    That antique store looks amazing! Where was that?

  • Anon December 12, 2011, 1:55 pm

    OMG I know as soon as I see Angry Birds in my App store’s list of “Updates”, that day is just gone for productivity.

  • Jamima @ Sweat Style December 12, 2011, 2:31 pm

    Oh how I hate (love) angry birds as I agree, it’s a great time waster. I’m also addicted to Temple Run and as runner you might like that (although maybe I shouldn’t have told you). 🙂

    Happy December for sure!

  • Karen December 12, 2011, 4:37 pm

    If you think Angry Birds is addicting, try “Temple Run”!!

  • Shannon @ Mon Amour December 12, 2011, 5:28 pm

    I love all the Christmas decorations that are out in December. It really makes it feel like the holiday season

  • Chelsea @ One Healthy Munchkin December 12, 2011, 6:37 pm

    I feel SO out of the loop – I have no idea what Angry Birds is! 😛

  • Jen December 12, 2011, 11:05 pm

    I too can get totally sucked into Angry Birds (and have managed to get a few others sucked in, as well), but that is SO funny that you dreamt that you WERE one! 🙂 Sounds as if your dreams are as crazy as mine!

    • Jen December 12, 2011, 11:07 pm

      @Jen: Also, Wyatt is absolutely PRECIOUS!!!

  • Katy December 12, 2011, 11:50 pm

    i just tried raw oats for the first time a few days ago with greek yogurt, grapefruit, and agave nectar…so good! thanks for the suggestion!
