Movin’ On Up…

… To the East Side. To a deluxe apartment in the sky-y-y-.

I have had that song stuck in my head for the last hour for some reason. I already live on the east side, but I am making some improvements to our place. Tonight we got rid of our old couch and tomorrow morning we get a new couch and a great oversized arm chair. Keeping my fingers crossed that they fit up the stairs!

Out with the old…

Morning breakfast was this week’s special (again) – a waffle from my dad. I have one left. Toppings were cream cheese and agave nectar. It was good, but not as good as the macademia nut butter I had last weekend.

Lunch was another favorite – Cafe Metro has $6 unlimited salads if you order online this month, so two of my coworkers and I opted for yummy salads. Avocado, chicken, and other goodies? I approve. My one coworker and I walked to pick up the orders – probably a mile total (there and back).

The rest of my day was busy, but otherwise uneventful (aside from getting rid of the couch). I walked home for exercise (2 more miles) and made a standard dinner, finishing off the meal with some maca chocolate and kabocha. Predictable.

Not predictable – a cookie from Bobby! It was an amazingly gooey chocolate chip cookie from City Bakery. Oh my, heaven in baked good form. It had huge chunks of chocolate. Definitely a good splurge.

Bobby is out getting dinner with our cousin, but I don’t really like to be out late on weeknights so I stayed in. I might even go to bed early. I’ve been so tired this week! An early night would be amazing. So that is where I’m headed.

How often do you splurge on something yummy?

    I really like the new layout. So sleek! MMMM that cookie. I had a cookie just like that last week. Sometimes a cookie is just necessary.

    I can’t decide if I would be happier with that new couch or the cookie…hmmm. Fun, in both instances! I rarely “splurge” when it comes to sweets, but have no problem with “substantial” meal-type foods (pizza, etc.) However, I have been craving a really good brownie lately, which is odd, as I haven’t had one in probably over 10 years (not my thing). If I’m going to splurge, I want it to be real and really good. I’m on the hunt.

    Maggie, your new furniture is going to look beautiful. Looks pretty comfy too. We need a new couch. When our dogs were puppies, we had a few chewing mishaps…I’m embarrassed to have people over!

    I think I splurge every week :D

    Funny, I’m also going through some sofa business. I’m moving and trying to sell my old one, but unfortunately we’re not buying a new one now but later when we move to a bigger apartment because my boyfriend already has a sofa at his place :)

    I think what’s weird is that I’ve stopped viewing foods as “splurges.” I feel like I eat yummy food every day. Ha. Something sweet after dinner is pretty much part of my routine now, and I eat 4-5 slices of pizza every time we order it. I guess that’s a “splurge,” but I just consider it good times :)

    ooh how exciting that you’re getting a new couch!! $6 unlimited salads?? that sounds like an awesome deal to me. :)

    i would consider buying $5+ nut butters as a splurge since i go through them so quickly, so yes, i do splurge on yummy foods!!
