It’s picture day [WIAW]

but I haven’t got a stitch to wear.

I better figure it out quick, I’m already running late for work. Remember picture day in elementary school? I teased my perm, put on a brand new top and stirrup leggings, and slathered cherry lip smackers on my lips. Now I tease my hair, per this pinteresting tutorial, raid my closet for a cute outfit, and apply whatever lip gloss or chap stick I find hiding in my purse.

Things haven’t changed much.

Something else that hasn’t changed? I’m joining Jenn for another What I ate Wednesday Linky Party.


Pumpkin pie steel cut oats…look familiar? They should, I’ve been eating them every day for the past 3 weeks. I combine my steel cut oats with 2-3 TBS canned pumpkin, 2 TBS raisins, 2 TBS pecans, 1/2 TBS chia seeds, and tons of cinnamon.


Pacific Organics Roasted Red Pepper Tomato Soup with garbanzo beans and basil, served in my Disneyland cup.

Contrary to popular belief, I do not think Disneyland is the happiest place on Earth. But I do think the cup is cute.

Red leaf lettuce with homemade shallot honey dressing, dried cherries, avocado and toasted pecans. The only thing that would have made this salad better would be chunks of goat cheese.

My pinteresting pumpkin says hello.

*Pictures taken on Sunday, because it was such a delicious lunch I decided I had to have it again.

Slow Cooker Black Beans with Green Onion Lime Rice

And my evening snack consisted of way too many of these…

Be honest, how much Halloween candy have you consumed?
