The Most Exciting Day of the Year

Well, not exactly, but I get pretty excited on Oscar day.

First catchup from yesterday.  I tried something different with my oatmeal yesterday.  First of all I had always used the instant oats and last time I bought oatmeal, I bought old-fashioned oats.  Even doing them in the microwave, I can taste the difference.  I also added some special guest stars…

Trader Joe’s Country Pumpkin Spice Granola and pumpkin butter I had gotten at the Amish Market in Mullica Hill. 

The final product looked like this…

And it was delicious!!  I should have cleaned up the bowl a bit, but it looked so good I couldn’t wait to eat it!  I think I’m having the same thing for breakfast today! 😉

Now for the big deal!!  You should all recognize this guy!

I know it’s probably crazy, but I just LOVE to watch the Oscars, including the 3 hour lead in, or maybe it’s 4 hours…I don’t remember, I don’t care,  I just love it! 🙂

This can be a problem for me because, of course I need to snack during the fun.  I’ve been working on a plan to help myself stay in control.  I’m going to have a good dinner, probably leftover barbecue beans and dogs from earlier in the week.  That will be filling.

I did think it over and when I went shopping today, I found these…

Tribe Hummus…I’ve never tried it before, but I’ve also never met a hummus I didn’t like.  I did the calculation and it’s only 2 points per 2 tbsp serving.  In fact the snackers that you see in the photo are individual little tubs that are 2 points each.  That should be a help to keep me in control.  The best part of the transactioin…they were on sale 1/2 price!! 🙂  Am I happy?! 🙂

The rest of my plan looks like this…

Baby carrots and Trader Joe’s eggplant and red pepper spread which counts as zero!   Hopefully that will keep me controlled.

My other treat for myself is going to include this…

Instant espresso coffee!

Kristen told me how to make a latte with this and I’m going to give it a try tonight.  I’ll probably need a little help staying awake, since the Oscars almost always run over.  But that’s part of the fun!

So that’s my plan for the day.  I’m running very late.  Ele had told me yesterday about a sale at K-Mart on lightweight cotton sweaters which I love and I had to stop to see what I could find.  I bought 4 and can’t wait to try them on!  Need to get some breakfast for Ralph and for myself.  I’m trying to have a coffee date with Ele this afternoon, so I better get this show on the road.

May I have the envelope, please!

  1. coffe was awesome!( we won’t discuss the jelly donut I ate) I am the luckiest sister in the world!

  2. Eeeeee, that’s the instant espresso I have. It’s so good, it feels like cheating. Like, I can’t believe there’s not something more complicated to it.
