Dress Shopping = No Love!

Look at this cute little face I get to wake up to:) His mission in the mornings is to look as pathetic as possible in hopes that either me or Patrick will stay home to keep him company. He is our little manipulator and he is pretty good at it!

Just looking at his little face makes me want to jump on a bus and get

I'm happy to say that I did not allow yesterdays public transportation issues ruin my day. I vented on yesterdays post and moved on:)


This breakfast may have helped me with the moving on process. It was delicious and perfect for the kind of morning I was having. Oatmeal with granola, coconut, peanut butter and goji berries!

Peanut butter has always been the star of my oats:

But the addition of these Goji berries added a really nice flavor to the mix. The berries were much better in hot oats than the overnight oats I had the other morning.

To wash it all down, coffee + cocoa!

Adora disk for my vitamin D!


During my lunch hour I had to go dress shopping again:( I hate it! And yet again I found nothing that will work for the function I'm going to be attending tomorrow night. How bad would it be if I showed up wearing the same dress I was wearing last year? I love last years dress and I really don't have the time or money to get a new one for this years event.
Because I was out shopping I picked up a Potbelly's sandwich to eat at my desk:

Turkey, provolone cheese, lettuce, hot peppers, mustard, mayo, onions and pickles all grilled together for a yummy lunch!


By the time I got home from work I was tired and didn't feel like doing much of anything. I put together a fast dinner of angel hair pasta with tomato sauce:


After dinner I turned on Ghost Hunters. It was their 100th episode and they were at Alcatraz! I also poured myself a Malibu rum and fruit punch cocktail.

Around 9:30 I started getting hungry so I whipped up a snack of toasted Pepperidge Farm Deli Flats.

Topped with mighty maple nut butter and butterscotch chips:

Pomegranate Jelly:

Patrick's mom gave this to us for Christmas. Well, she really gave it to me because she knows my love for Pomegranate is strong! I cracked open the jar of Trappist jelly for the first time last night and it was really good. I always forget how much I like jelly especially one that is a favorite flavor of mine.

I'm going to have to start looking around the jelly/preserves isle to see what flavors are available!


Would you wear the same dress to a charity event 2 years in a row?


  1. Personally, I don't think there is anything wrong with wearing the same dress two years in a row!

  2. I would def do that! I actually wore the exact same outfit the last 2 valentines day date nights with Joey because I'm trying to cut back on buying clothes! It was a cute outfit so it worked!

    And I need to get some goji berries. are the expensive?

  3. I've worn the same dress 2 years in a row to the same event. I highly doubt anyone paid enough attention to me long enough to realize it. What I did do was really switch up my accersories. I say go for it!

  4. I think it is totally fine to wear the same dress twice - even though it is the same people, no one will even you remember what all of them wore?

  5. YUM! I love the trappist jam and I had no idea they had a pom flavor! the best thing in this post is that turkey sub! omg that looks so perfectly delicious!! and YES I saw wear it!!

  6. That turkey sandwich looks like it's a Potbelly sandwich... Is it? hahahaha, sorry if it's not & you have no idea what I'm talking about. it's a sandwich shop we have in my area.

    I really want to try goji berries, they're so expensive though.. worth it? I imagine they are.

  7. Aww, the cutest little dog face! Great photo.

    I don't think there's anything wrong with wearing the same dress. You could try to switch things up by wearing different jewelry or shoes from the last time you wore it. I know I would be freaked out about wearing the same thing 2 years in a row. but really, I bet no one pays attention! :)
