Winner, winner, chicken dinner…

5 Sep

Happy hump day! Almost done with the week… yet, it feels like its dragging. Blech. Anyway, I found out that I won 6 months of free membership at Lucille Roberts for being a top “cheerleader!” So exciting!! I also got a goody bag with all sorts of treats and a tee shirt, cap, etc.



I told my husband about this and he said I should put the money saved into my retirement account to which I thought “or I can go shopping!” Haha!

I still can’t get over that it’s September. Fall will be coming soon! Time for sweater dresses, skinny jeans, and Pumpkin Spice lattes at Starbucks. Actually PSLs are already out and I had my first (of many) yesterday. Today when I was at the ‘bucks, I spotted these:


Pumpkin Spice VIA packets! Ahh!! I cannot wait to try these. All you need to do is add milk. The packets are 60 cals a pop and if you add skim, soy, or coconut milk, it’ll top out at 90 to 100 cals (give or take). Way less than what a PSL tops out at (and I won’t even mention the calorie amount, lest you become depressed like me). 🙂

And in other exiting news, my birthday is 16 days away!! I will be the ripe old age of 28. 🙂 It falls on a Friday, which is awesome. Normally I’d party it up until the wee hours, except oh, I have a race that weekend. So not really. But I don’t care. I’m such a #runnerd. 🙂

And a special shout out to my gym partner-in-sweat, Jasmine, as it’s her birthday!! HAPPY BIRTHDAY!

So that is it from me now… have a great night!!

      I have been such a fail. It is sitting in my pantry and I keep forgetting to make it – when I do, it’s like 10:30 at night. However, I have a project to work on for class and I will be breaking it out as I think I will be up all night, barf.

    Congrats on your win! That is awesome! Definitely saves you money for sure! Also, I have to get those via packets. I am sure that will also save some cash money!
