Welcome back to another Marvelous in My Monday hosted by the lovely Healthy Diva Eats.
Marvelous is – Peppermint Mocha and Snowman Shortbreads at Starbucks. I must confess I am not a fan of Starbucks every day (gasp! She said WHAT? I know, I know … please don’t hate me) but when the RedCup’s come out so does the Peppermint Mocha. My all time favorite warm drink and every year I look forward to tasting Christmas in my cup. Now we live in an area with a Starbucks I can get my Christmas fix when I head into town and not have to wait until I make a trip to Ottawa. Because they taste like Christmas that means they are low in calories … I have had 4 in the last 3 days.
Marvelous is – Spending my Saturday night snuggled up on the couch with Mister, enjoying some wine and finding out what my TV Boyfriend, Dexter, will be getting up to in this last season. I missed the entire season this summer when we were moving and successfully avoided ALL media about the finale hoping I could grab it through VOD. Saturday we spent our morning at Costco (where people make me stabby and I was not arrested for assault BONUS) and snapped up the final season. We’re two episodes in … I want to have a Dexter marathon but I’m not ready for the series to end so I will watch it slowly, savoring the next 10 episodes.
Marvelous is – Stronger Than Yesterday from Bama-Ry came in the mail on Thursday. I first found Bama-Ry on Olive to Run when Cori was having a Give-Away. I did not win (cue sad trombone sounds) but had to have this necklace. I absolutely love Jasmine’s shop and may have monomania with everything she makes. You have to check her out.
Marvelous is – A Full English Breakfast for dinner. I spent my Friday afternoon at the gym with my trainer and had not taken anything out for dinner (stay-at-home wife fail). I could eat a Full English for supper every night of the week, takes me back to being a kid. No yolk porn here … move on people.
Marvelous is – My new Garmin. Found at Costco for $199.99, it includes a heartrate monitor and footpod for indoor running. At that price I could not pass it up. Merry Christmas to me! This is my second Garmin in less than 3 months. I may have a gadget problem but I am not looking for a 12 step program … yet.
That, my friends, was my Marvelous Weekend. What three things did you do this weekend?
Are you a gadget geek? What do you have on your Santa list?
