I Dislike Shopping & Return Of The Bento Box


I hope everyone’s weekend was exciting and full of fun!

Mine was pretty mellow. For some reason, I was super lazy feeling this weekend… I have a feeling it has to do with the weather starting to cool down. Rainy Sundays are kind of nice.

I did get one thing accomplished at least.

File Later 220I finally got décor for our hallway ledges.

I have been dreading this somewhat because I hate shopping lately. It was pretty much as bad as I thought it was going to be too because I had no idea what I wanted. Since our hallway is away from the rest of the house I didn’t have a specific color scheme or theme that I wanted, other than I wanted something colorful and that I wanted a vase or two.

Well 40 minutes wondering around Pier 1 I finally just started picking stuff out. Which I told myself I wasn’t going to buy anything at Pier 1 since it is expensive and I much prefer to shop across the street at Pier 1’s younger, cheaper, sister – World Market Cost Plus.

Buuuuut, after 40 minutes, I had too much time invested at Pier 1 and I decided just to go for it because I wanted to be done and out of there, and desperately wanted to be out of shopping mode.

At least when I got home I was definitely happy with my choice.

Though if they didn’t give me so many damn options I would probably be able to get in and out of there faster! Haha.

I’ve decided I just really prefer online shopping.


Anyway, off to work!

I got my lunch packed up and ready to go today – return of the Bento Box!

File Later 215

Tuna, wheat thins, an orange, and grapes.

And since I was too lazy to cut up stuff to make a little salad to get some veggies in, I squeezed some in with breakfast instead.

File Later 217Smoothie time! Even with the cooler weather.

In the mix:

  • 1 banana
  • 4 oz strawberry banana Greek yogurt (Chobani)
  • handful of spinach
  • 2 scoops protein powder (Visalus mix)
  • ice
  • all blended together with almond milk


Alright, off to work! And then off to training tonight!

  • Shopping: Love it or hate it?
    I always love the idea of it, and I like to buy new things, but the whole shopping process is what I’m not a fan of!
  • What’s your breakfast kick right now? (eggs, oats, smoothies, etc)
    Smoothies for me still!
  • Do you always make an effort to fit veggies in at lunch?

  1. I have the hardest time fitting in veggies before dinner. They just don’t make a very appetizing snack in my opinion and I much prefer fruits. But I’ve found that I can usually just throw spinach into or on top of whatever I’m eating for lunch and it works just fine. 🙂

  2. I have a hard time fitting veggies in… period. I definitely love shopping – by myself more so than with others. I am LOVING your decorations so cute.

  5. Love your decor and your bento box! I have to be in the mood for shopping – if not I’m like “get me OUT of here!” I never know what I want for my house, so that’s usually not very fun for me. Shoe shopping is a different story. 🙂

    I try to get veggies in at lunch, and lately it’s been in the form of SOUP! My breakfasts lately have been smoothies, oats, and random baked goods (last night I made a banana/applesauce/chocolatechip/oat cookie-pie-thing and it turned out delicious! It will serve as breakfast this week).

  6. We’re big proponents of smoothies even when the temperatures drop. Sometimes, ya just gotta squeeze in those veggies no matter what!
