So, I'm just gonna say this, I totally earned my Sunday off :) I only have one pic to post today because I was out of my house for work from 5:45 am until 8:00 pm.  It was totally my intention to stop off at Chipotle to reward my hard work with some rice, beans and guacamole, but I was so tired I just wanted to get home asap. So no fun Chipotle pic. Maybe next time!

Check out my breakfast, eaten at 5 am. For the record, I can't stand eating that early...I'm never hungry and it totally throws off my day. oh well.

Gluten free english muffin, some amazing avocado, salt and pepper and a banana on the side. It was so delicious and if I have to eat breakfast before the sun rises, this is the perfect meal to eat!

The wedding went well, the couple was adorable and the groom was from Australia so there were tons of people with amazing accents all around :)

Back with more eats tomorrow. I have a new idea for a fall inspired oatmeal that I'll hopefully be able to try out!

*Edited to add - I just checked my mail for today and you can imagine my surprise when I found the following...

A super cute thank you card from Shen and a gift card to Starbucks for the giveaway I had a few weeks ago.  The card is so perfect because owls are one of my favorite animals, and this one is particularly cute! Thanks so much Shen, it was really nice of you and I'll definitely put this card to use next weekend when I have another SUPER early wedding to work!


  1. Ack! Kudos on not falling asleep on the job :) Awesome looking avo, as usual.

  2. Lol thanks! I'm surprised I didn't pass out during the HOUR AND A HALF ride home! I don't mind working a long day but it is just so brutal when you finish and you just want to be home...but then you get that sinking feeling when you realize you won't be home for so much longer! Oy!

  3. Mmmm...Chipotle...drool...

    That owl card is adorable! I'm a scrapbooker, so I love cutesy cards and paper. I can't believe how early you have to get up in the morning! Thank goodness for coffee. :)

  4. One day I will get that burrito bowl from Chipotle! I really loved the card, it was such an unexpected surprise :) I don't normally get up that early but it was a combination of a really long commute and an early start time that all worked out to a 4:30 wakeup. I won't lie, there were 4 shots of espresso in my drink today :X!

  5. All that avocado looks soo good; your plate kind of looks like a sideways smiley face with two big green eyes.

    I love that card too!

  6. Hope the Fosters was flowing at the wedding and glad you got the card. Wasn't sure if it needed more than one stamp.

  7. Rose - lol I know, I turned the plate purposely because all I saw was that smiley face!

    Shen - I was looking for Fosters but didn't see any! Yes, the card made it, thanks again!

  8. I hate when my day gets thrown off like that, but looks like you did your breakfast up right! :o)
    Awe...that' was so sweet of Shen!

  9. I didn't know Shen was so sweet to send a card with a cute owl on the front. The truth is now out!

    I could go for mashed avocado on an English Muffin, too.

  10. Michelle - Breakfast was super yummy, it was definitely a good choice!

    Jenny - I know, the truth is def out ;) It was super sweet of her. Go for it, avocado on toast is so good!
