Right before lunch today, I went out on a special assignment to pick up cupcakes for a coworker’s birthday.
There I stood, face-to-face with an inordinate amount of baked goods at the Publix bakery. I selected the only non Easter-themed cupcakes I could find, salivated over the delicious-looking icing and checked out.
(Yes, I also bought the birthday boy a toy helicopter. Let’s just say my coworkers are easily amused. 😉 )
Since I still have another two days until I can fully indulge my sweet tooth, I bought myself a pack of Extra Dessert Delights mint chocolate chip gum instead of breaking into the cupcakes on the street corner.
Yeah, gum and cupcakes are totally the same thing.
Though it obviously can’t compete with real mint chocolate chip ice cream, the Dessert Delights gum is pretty fantastic in its own right. I don’t see this pack lasting through the work day that long. Yes, I really do chew that much gum.
Once I arrived back at my desk, I broke into my lunch which was very similar to yesterday’s meal.
Butter lettuce with carrots, celery, a veggie patty and balsamic vinaigrette dressing… plus an unpictured apple on the side.
I had to use up a bunch of the produce in our fridge before we hit the road this weekend. I can’t stand to waste food, so using everything in a big salad did the trick.
Not too shabby!
Back to work for a few more hours. I’m so excited for this weekend! We’re staying with my family tonight and I can’t wait to see my mom, dad and sister!
Quote of the Day
Before signing off, I have to share this quote that Vivianne left in the comments section of my morning post.
“Don’t live by the future because the future never comes.”
I absolutely think that dreaming and creating goals is so incredibly important, but we can’t forget to enjoy today, too. The journey to achieving our dreams is an adventure in itself and part of the fun! I must remember that as well!
To quote Kung Fu Panda, “Yesterday is history. Tomorrow is a mystery. Today is a gift. That’s why they call it the present.”
