Home Alone...

"There are times when silence has the loudest voice" - Leroy Brownlow.

I just had to put up a quote about silence because my house it soooo quite right now! Its very weird, because it is NEVER quite. I have two HUGE dogs (both of them 200 pounds) One is a Great Perinease and the other is a St. Bernard. here is a picture of the both of them in their usual state.

DOGS 009

Well, my roommate left for Napa Valley this morning for job training and took the dogs to the Kenel. So, here I am...all alone! No roommate, no dogs. I cant decide if I like that peace and quiet or not. Right now it is ok...and im SURE it will be just fine with me when the dogs arent waking me up at 530 in the morning with their barking...but i know two weeks of this is going to get lonely! Ill just have plenty of Pajama Parties, I suppose! haha.

This morning I woke up and had my usual breakfast...two slices of wheat bread, one with blueberry preserves, the other with strawberry. I know Im weird, but I like to mix up the flavors! With 1/2 cup fat free cottage cheese, sprinkled with cinnamon. I always put the cottage cheese on top of the toast and it sooooo good!! And of course, coffee!

I worked open to close today, and I was planning on packing my lunch...but I was running late, so I was FORCED to eat out of the food court :(. blah! The best thing that I could think of to eat was just a grilled chicken sandwich. So many of my friends eat fast food all the time and I just dont like it. They always call me out and talk about how "healthy" I eat. Do any of you guys get that from your friends?! I just tell them that thats what I like to eat. and that is that.

When I got home from work I was pretty hungry and wanted something quick. So I microwaved some Mac and cheese and them bulked it up with some steamed broccoli and cauliflower mixed in. I also had an apple on the side.


So, what does everyone think about the peanut butter scare?! I was just wondering because peanut butter is such a big staple on everyone's blogs. I know I just finished a whole jar of PB & Co. peanut butter, and so far I feel fine!

Well, I think I'm gonna call it a night. I might actually get some sleep tonight, with the dogs being gone! I hope everyone had a relaxing Sunday! Its back to work tomorrow. dears!



Peanut Butter and Jenny said...

Oh I love that quote! So true!!

I am definitely not a fast food lover either - this always lead to conflict with my boyfriend when we're looking to grab a quick lunch - he's always eyeing mcdonalds and i'm always eyeing panera bread!! luckily he enjoys the paninis at panera so i can almost always convince him to go there ;)!

oh girl I was SO nervous about the peanut butter scare but i actually read that it wasn't jars of peanut butter - it was products containing peanut butter (cookies, crackers, etc.) it's scary though!

have a good night love! <3

Hey I'm majoring in Elem. Education and should be finished with college- but don't want to face the "real world" haha! Lunch looks yummy, the grown up mac n cheese version!

I always feel slightly guilty when I end up affecting how other people eat, i.e. no fast food. Then again I'm indirectly making them eat healthier, so I should be applauded!

Love the dog pics! They are huge!

Hey hey! Yes, I always get called out for taking the healthy route, but I have noticed over the years that all of my friends are slowly migrating in the same direction :) I still cannot believe how huge those dogs are! Hope you have a nice monday

Your dogs are so cute!

The majority of my friends comment on my healthy eating. I try to brush them off and tell them that eating healthy makes me feel better. Too much crap puts me in a grumpy mood and I like to feel good about myself. This is still a work in progress!

My husband loves that I eat healthy, but lots of my co-workers and friends always make comments about it.

Ohhh those puppies are CUTE!

If you're weird, I'm CRAZY: sometimes I put as many as THREE different jellies on ONE piece of bread so I don't miss out on any tastes!!!
